Obama To Accept Nomination Before 75,000+ (Nuremburg-Style!)
Politico ^ | 7-7-08 | Mike Allen

Posted on 07/07/2008 6:33:25 AM PDT by tcrlaf

The Obama campaign announced Monday that he will leave the hall of the Democratic National Convention in Denver and deliver a rock-star-style acceptance speech at Invesco Field at Mile High, quadrupling his live audience.

The speech will be on the fourth and final day of the convention, Aug. 28.

Adding to the historic resonance of the first African-American to be nominated for president, that’s also the 45th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream Speech.”

The move means additional expense for the television networks, where executives are having a conference call Monday to discuss the expense and logistics of moving their cameras and anchors to the new location after months of planning for a finale in the Pepsi Center.

The convention hall has a capacity of 19,000, compared to more than 76,000 at Invesco.

What is with all the references to Nazi’s and Hitler, I’m tired of it. Can’t people think an original thought?

Bush is clearly the bogeyman, no matter that his term of office is coming to an end. They have convinced vast numbers of people that the “evils of Bush” will continue unabated unless we hand power to Obama.

The sun on the meadow is summery warm
The stag in the forest runs free
But gathered together to greet the storm
Tomorrow belongs to me
Tomorrow belongs to me

The branch on the linden is leafy and green
The Rhine gives it’s gold to the sea
But somewhere a glory awaits unseen
Tomorrow belongs to me
Tomorrow belongs to me

The babe in his cradle is closing his eyes
The blossom embraces the bee
But soon says a whisper, arise, arise
Tomorrow belongs to me
Tomorrow belongs to me

Now Fatherland, Fatherland, show us the sign
Your children have waited to see
The morning will come when the world is mine
Tomorrow belongs to me
Tomorrow belongs to me

Tomorrow belongs
Tomorrow belongs
Tomorrow belongs to me!

The stadium will have a specially-fitted glass ceiling which Obama will symbolically shatter as he ascends to the heavens.

OK, who will be the Leni Riefenstahl producing the movie?

The best propagandists in the world... the American DBM! Today on Morning Joe, they ended the show by asking “what have we learned?”(as if you were in kindergarten). Numero uno was Obama's extravaganza at the stadium.

The brainwashing will only intensify from here on in.

“What is with all the references to Nazi’s and Hitler,”

Simply put, because it’s the first thought that enters many people’s minds when they hear this worshipping crap....

Remember...
Hitler ran on a platform of “CHANGE!” as well.

My first comparison of Obama is with Niccoli Carpathia, actually...

Because it’s a valid comparison on the messiah, change, hope, , fervent believers, gun control, and socialisism levels.

Will they be breaking windows out of Jewish owned businesses after wards?” More likely to be WHITE-OWNED businesses with this crowd....

No but He will be giving the WHITE-OWNED & JEWISH OWNED BUSINESSES to all the blacks who don't have their own businesses. You know, redistribution of wealth!

Obama is the reincarnation of JFK and RFK.

I await his proclamation that "a rising tide lifts all boats". On the second thought, I would expect something to the tune of "man the lifeboats, she's sinking...".

McCain could lease a McDonald’s, and they wouldn’t even have to shut down the drive-thru.

Yep, exactly. Sour grapes are hilarious. I can think that Obama is a liberal wackjob without being jealous that he is popular and call him Hitler because Hitler spoke to big crowds, too. Garth Brooks sang to about 750,000 people in Central Park. Paul McCartney sang to over 180,000 paying fans in Rio. Are Garth and Paul the same as Hitler? It's idiotic logic.

You can bet this will be a concert.

Springsteen, Mellenhead, couple others (maybe Jackson Wifebeater Browne, but I doubt it)

Multimedia spectacular also. Think Super Bowl halftime - fireworks, laser light show. And finally some stunt (releasing doves or the like) or maybe a “Planet Minute” hosted by Algore when they all light Bic lighters and burn a hole in the ozone layer...

Chris Matthews will go through AT LEAST three boxes of Kleenex...

Actually, the last time he spoke before a crowd of about 75,000, there was a rock concert preceding his speech. I wonder if they are planning another rock concert before his speech to build up the crowds. Of course, the MSM won’t report on that if that is the case.

Perhaps it's the similarities between Obama's and the democRAT's platform and that of the National Socialist Party in Germany (aka the Nazis), circa the 1930's.

The last time he spoke to 75,000 (Portland) it really wasn’t 75,000 (and we had a good long thread about it, culminating with pix of Kerry at the same venue, with the same-sized crowd pegged at about 30,000)

The media will have a running battle to see who can out-exagerrate/adulate.

AP will report it as the “Million-Man Inauguration”

He’s also one quarter Arab.

But his skin color wins out over his ethnic heritage.

The talking points have been written and his landmark candidacy will be written in history textbooks as the DNC sees fit.
