DNC Erecting Creepy Giant Obama Sculpture
FrontPageMagazine.com ^ | Aug 31st, 2012 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 09/01/2012 10:41:45 AM PDT by Daffynition

Forget the marble pillars, this time there will be a giant 16-foot sculpture of Obama made out of 15.5 tons of sand at the Democratic National Convention. Building a giant sand sculpture of a living leader might be considered a bit tacky with its worshipful implications, but building one during a hurricane in South Carolina is in particularly bad taste.

But if nothing else, at least Obama has found one “Shovel Ready Project”. And this isn’t even the creepiest giant Obama sand sculpture ever made. The winner of that particular competition is still Sudarsan Pattnaik with this nightmare made out of sand.

Looks like Al Jolson doing his ‘black face’ and jazz hands.

When I see that sculpture, I can’t help but hear the voice of “Tickle Me Elmo” ... “Oooh, that tickles!”

Reminds one of the kind of worship Castro receives in Cuba...or how the North Koreans show love for their “Great Leader”.

Sick.

The media would have had a field day if Romney had something like this made for his convention.

If Zippy gets re-elected, we will see giant statues in honor of the Empty Suit everywhere.

Oh, my, this campaign just lends itself to more "eastwooding," doesn't it?

From scriptural references to warnings about building on firm foundations instead of "sand," to images of "shifting sands," one can just see the possibilities from their "porches."

It shows the Democrats mindset, if they could, they would establish a one-party dictatorship, and allow a President for Life.

The facial expression is really creepy, but it seems appropriate. Someone needs to sneak a sign in front of it, “DEAR LEADER”.

I recently read somewhere that Obama has awarded a large Stimulus grant to create jobs for sculptors.

They are going to create a memorial to LBJ, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama on the reverse slope of Mount Rushmore.

One of our favorite songs when the boys were little (from the Psalty tapes):

Don’t build your house on the sandy land
Don’t build it too near the shore
Oh it might be kind of nice
But you’ll have to do it twice
And you’ll have to build your house once more
You better build your house upon the rock
And put a sure foundation on the solid spot
And though the storms may come and go
Peace of God you’ll know.

Communists.

It's what they always do. They build huge, ego satisfying statues, or gargantuan posters of themselves and put them in public places. These images say, I am your god, I am larger than life. Bow down all ye peasants, be humble and obey.

Fortunately, these images are usually the first thing to be torn down, or blown to bits, by angry mobs once the murderers have been ripped from power.

Communists. It's what they always do. Here's the proof.

This is beyond bizarre. Will the delegates bow down to this Kim Jong Zero?

Straight from the mind of Valerie Jarrett, no doubt.

One can only wish that the unintended symbolism of a “castle made of sand” is apt here.

The growing Personality Cult of Obama is disturbing. That kind of political worship belongs in Third World and Ex-Communist states, not America.

Exactly. This is not the American way. These people are completely over the top for hussein. I mean dangerously over the top. This is a symptom of the kind of personal worship that drives people to do all kinds of things that you'd think no sane person would do.

Seeing that "statue" go up raises the hairs on the back of my neck. The chances that hussein's reign in America is not going to end well just went up a big notch. Be on guard, seriously. Over the next couple of months we are going to see (or maybe not, but they will still happen) things that you never thought you'd see happen in America.

Truth is eternal.

Obama will not last long enough to do all the things he wants to do.

He is a shack of straw on a foundation sitting at the mouth of the Mississippi during an F -10 hurricane season.
