Grab your barf bags. You're going to need them when viewing this video produced by Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, featuring celebrities making sacred pledges to lord Barack Obama to support a whole host of trendy causes as well as feel-good poses and posted at MySpace Celebrity. Here is how the "Presidential Pledge" is described:

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore team with MySpace Celebrity and celebrate Barack Obama's presidential inauguration in a truly inspiring way with The Presidential Pledge, a moving video directed by Demi and produced by Ashton’s Katalyst Films. Reflecting Barack’s call for change, the film features over 50 of the biggest stars in Hollywood revealing how they plan to personally participate in keeping America strong, proud and green. The clip will be presented to our new President during his inaugural celebration.

When I lived in La-La Land, those celebs weren't so warm whenever we attempted to spearfish at their beachfront properties. They hated when the public used their beaches even though the law said it was public land. All we got from celebs were a lot of dirty looks.

They carry way too much weight with children and people who get their information from TV. This “servant of obama” sound bite could be a great one to spread around. I just wonder if the obama-supporting public would understand what’s wrong with it. :)

I posted a comment on their myspace page yesterday it was lengthy but basically asking if they were promoting unity and community service during the last 8 years. If they had ever volunteered to help military families, wounded soldiers, built parks, volunteered at after school programs during the Bush administration, and what compelled them now to want to promote these things? They removed my comments and eventually blocked me from posting when I repeatedly ask for my comments to be put back up. Censorship at it's finest. They believe in free speech as long as the speech agrees with them.

Sounds like a parenting issue to me.

All of these solemn pledges will be forgotten tomorrow when the hype has died down.

What disturbs me is the way these people view the relationship between the citizen and the government. Only a generation ago, it was formulaic for a politician to pretend that his job was to serve his constituents. Now we have our Hollywood betters lecturing us about how we have to volunteer to serve our politicians.

Do you suppose Ashton and Demi are going to fire all of their accountants and just file the 1040 EZ and pay the government whatever taxes they owe, before deductions? Or do you suppose they are going to keep those accountants busy looking for each and every way to save a dollar on the tax bill?

I was always astounded when I saw pictures of Adolph Hitler, with thousands of adoring Germans surrounding him. I thought to myself, "why did they support him, when they knew how evil he was?"

I'm not saying Obama is Hitler--not one bit. But...he has all the propaganda in place to do anything he wants. Any dissenters better have a strong stomach, because they will be pilloried by the MSM, these idiot celebrities, and other wanna-be Obama-ites.

What “servant of Obama” soundbite? I must have missed that in the video. Where is it? I’m trying to explain to my friend (who has finally woken up some about this and is starting to get a little creeped out) that this is becoming cultish.

Exactly what I thought with his acceptance speech! Adoring throngs listening to platitudes and drivel. Enthralled. Bewitched by soaring rhetoric.

I am scared to death of what this guy owes the lunatic left.

I had the TV on a few minutes ago and was noting the flotsam and jetsam in the crowd. They drank the coolaid.

This guy us exactly what Reagan was accused of being-the product of slick marketing and packaging. There is no there there!

It was towards the end,, the guy in the red shirt with all the tattoos. And yes,,Isn’t it creepy?
I’m reminded of German soldiers swearing personal allegiance to Adolph Hitler. I know the others in the video didn’t swear allegiance to Hussein by name, but it was very clear thats exactly what they meant.
(as pointed out by the earlier poster, who pointed out how much they didnt volunteer for all those same causes during the Bush years)

I love the one dingbat who says "...to be the voice for those who have no voice..." - uh, is that the unborn? Are you going to stand up for the baby about to be slaughtered and discarded in the trash? Oh wait, they won't have to be discarded anymore, they can be harvested to save the life of adults who are ill.

A new cottage industry is born!

It’s at the very end. I tried to skip through but I found that hard to do, so it might be necessary to listen to all the comments leading up to the end. Then, the celebrities all form a picture of obama. Absolutely creepy.
Good news that your friend is starting to be aware! It’s encouraging to know that people are beginning to see what’s going on.

At the very end, Demi Moore proclaims she pledges to be a servant of the president. This is after some other idiots pledge to “end slavery”. Earlier some maroon pledges to turn off the lights cuz he “always leaves the lights on”. Yeah, don’t strain yourself buddy.

So what these idiots are implying because Bush was president, they could be hateful, irresponsible D$cks but now that Obama is here, they “pledge” to be patriotic, “love thy neighbors”, good citizens.

Do they see how stupid they sound?

I just noted elsewhere that the movie A FACE IN THE CROWD is on TCM today. Excellent movie in which a politician shows a charming face to the TV camera and becomes a cult-like figure by telling the people what they want to hear. Andy Griffith is stunningly good and seems flat-out evil. It’s a great illustration of the packaging and marketing that can make someone like obama.

Now that is just plain weird. The one guy who said He Pledges Allegiance to the funk of the funkadelia of America was just mind blowing. Later he pledge's service to Obama.

I don't mind a President asking people to get involved in with helping others, service to the community, and to the country. Even Bush did that in 2001. But this is something totally different.

Here's the remarks I left on the Big Hollywood forum last night about this video:

Just when one thinks that the societal yeast infection which is called Hollywood had reached its lowest point in shallowness they release this video which is so over the top that it’s actually laugh-out-loud funny. The looks of gravitas on the faces of these pustules as they pledge their undying love and devotion for their brown leader is truly a certified vomit-inducer to us commoners. I for one plan to copy this video onto a dvd and play it whenever I need a few laughs, or a laxative.

That’s the lead singer from the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

I actually like(d) that group and assumed they were stupid libtards.

But now I know everyone on this video is a moron and refuse to contribute my money to them in anyway, shape or form.

Sorry Bruce Willis, you are guilty by association because I’m sure you have to pay child support. So until your youngest is out of college, you don’t get my money either, LOL!

Jason Bateman’s pledge to only flush his toilet after a “deuce” and not a “single” is by far the most disturbing clip. What if he doesn’t poop for more than a day? Anyone want to use his bathroom? This ranks up there with Sheryl Crow’s pledge to only use “a single square” of toilet paper per use. these people are certifiable, but also really GROSS.

Re: Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher Produce Obama Celebrity Pledge Video

Those who ignore history... will be forced to relive it.

Coming soon to military bases across the United States:

"Ich schwöre bei Gott diesen heiligen Eid, daß ich dem Führer des Deutschen Reiches und Volkes Adolf Hitler, dem Oberbefehlshaber der Wehrmacht, unbedingten Gehorsam leisten und als tapferer Soldat bereit sein will, jederzeit für diesen Eid mein Leben einzusetzen."*

And for the US Civil Service:

"Ich schwöre: Ich werde dem Führer des Deutschen Reiches und Volkes Adolf Hitler treu und gehorsam sein, die Gesetze beachten, und meine Amtspflichten gewissenhaft erfüllen, so wahr mir Gott helfe."**

From Wikipedia's Hitler Oath" page:

* "I swear by God this sacred oath that I shall render unconditional obedience to Adolf Hitler, the Führer of the German Reich and people, supreme commander of the armed forces, and that I shall at all times be ready, as a brave soldier, to give my life for this oath."

**"Volkes Adolf Hitler treu und gehorsam sein, die Gesetze beachten, und meine Amtspflichten gewissenhaft erfüllen, so wahr mir Gott helfe. I swear: I will be faithful and obedient to Adolf Hitler, Führer of the German Reich and people, to observe the law, and to conscientiously fulfil my official duties, so help me God. "
