This is perverse and WE ARE FIGHTING EVIL, INDEED
Edited on Sat Jan-29-05 07:20 PM by RaulVB
LOOK AT THIS PICTURE POSTED ELSEWHERE HERE AT DU.

THIS IS WHY WE MUST DEFEAT THIS REGIME:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

This is not an "accident" guys, what we are fighting here is huge, so big that you can't even imagine.

This is the most repugnant version of a cult to the "personality" of a "leader" that the world has experienced in 80 years,

Sorry it had to be you...

1. This Bush cult has been in the making for a while now
Edited on Sat Jan-29-05 07:30 PM by BrklynLiberal

The Bush Cult:

"We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality"

By Chris Floyd

10/22/04 "Moscow Times" -- Now we come at last to the heart of darkness. Now we know, from their own words, that the Bush Regime is a cult -- a cult whose god is Power, whose adherents believe that they alone control reality, that indeed they create the world anew with each act of their iron will. And the goal of this will -- undergirded by the cult's supreme virtues of war, fury and blind faith -- is likewise openly declared: "Empire."

EDIT: There have been some article by conservatives who have been terrified by the realization that there are minions out there who would kill anyone for Bush.


<snip>
In the ranks of the new conservatives, however, I see and experience much hate. It comes to me in violently worded, ignorant and irrational emails from self-professed conservatives who literally worship George Bush. Even Christians have fallen into idolatry. There appears to be a large number of Americans who are prepared to kill anyone for George Bush.

5. Question? Are we finding answers on how to truly cut to the heart of this
battle here at D.U.? Education education education shining stars of wisdom only weapon to get at the heart and destroy this power of oppression.

4. I use the word "evil" myself now and then, but I think we...
...should be wary of it. Cultism isn't new. It's old and it's very human. There is no Devil here or Anti-Christ or Alien menace or Predator--just us humans, with our magnificent, highly creative, unfathomable brains often falling prey to delusions, images and false realities--and sometimes falling prey quite catastrophically.

We've seen the creation of leaders and cultish worship time and again. In less dangerous ways, we do it every day with rock stars, movie stars, politicians, billionaires and famous people of every kind. And back through this century alone, we have many quite awful eruptions of cultism: the Stalinist cult, the Hitler cult, the Mao cult, the Mussolini cult.

The cult combined with miitary and state power is of course the most lethal manifestation of this need to worship and be led.

American democracy has been fairly free of this crap for most of its history--partly because of a raucous, irreverent press. We are desperately lacking that today, except on the internet. THAT is not normal, but I do think that ordinary Americans are a lot more disdainful of the Bush cult than anyone realizes.

For one thing, I am totally convinced that a majority of the voters repudiated this idiot and his murderous cabal, by a lot more than the Exit Polls say (3% margin to Kerry)--since there was massive vote SUPPRESSION (people who never got to the polls--Greg Palast estimates 3 million black voters were denied the vote one way or another).

I think the Bush cult only plays to a minority, and can only "succeed" (that is, stay in power) by keeping the majority off balance, by stealing its votes, by making the majority FEEL LIKE it is minority, by dividing & conquering, and isolating--and by using its lapdog media to the max to keep up the relentless propaganda.

It's very brittle power, in my opinion--extremely dangerous, but still brittle.

And I don't think our military and our intelligence community are nearly as much in lockstep with Bushism as the German military establishment was with Hitlerism.

We are a very different country than Germany 1933-34--much bigger, much more diverse, much harder to control.

It was Hannah Arrendt, I think, who spoke of the "banality of evil." "Evil"--of the kind we are seeing with the Bush cult--is boring.

Americans hate boring.

6. We are a very different country than Germany 1933-34--much bigger,
much more diverse, much harder to control... Are you fooling yourself or attempting to fool others? I'm seeing sirens and red lights at this point of your post.

13. Good grasp of the situation
I also believe the greatest reason for their continued success is their actions are so swift and enormous in scope that our systems of checks cannot keep up.

A little control, a little distraction, and the numbing complexity of modern life. They are not trying to convince the American people in the validity of their philosophy, they are just trying to keep us from acting against them. A 46% approval rating after inauguration?

9. :Hurls over screen: oh well at least it blurred the * pics.
In the Bible, Anti-Christs are supposed to be people who teach the Christianity falsely. The Fundaisies come to mind.

And for those of you who believe in the Illuminati, * is just another reptile-human hybrid servant of satan.

If you're an athiest, * is just another fundie nutcase.

If you're Shinto, * may be an Oni in disguise.

If you believe in Greek paganism, *co. may be children of Typhoon.

17. I'll tell you one that's NOT photo-shopped
And it's on the cover of U.S. News and World Report. I can't find it online, but it's the Jan 24, 2005 issue. Bush w/ none-too-subtle halo. Blech.

16. I would never call bush the antichrist, cause
he's too fucking stupid. But he's definately one of the false prophets. What scares me is that its not obvious to other Christians, especially after all he's done.
