Posted on 06/06/2008 7:27:45 PM PDT by Mobile Vulgus
Well, I have come to the conclusion that Mark Morford of the San Francisco Chronicle just threw away the last tiny shred of credibility he might have had left by dreamily imagining that Barack Obama is so omniscient, so "ethereal" and so messiah-like that he isn't a "normal" human being. Maybe Mark thinks he might be an alien from another planet, some trans-dimensional traveler, or maybe an angel come down in human form to lead us sheep into the promised land? I'm not exaggerating either. In his latest piece he calls Obama a "Rare Kind of Attuned Being," a "Lightworker," he says he is "ethereal" and "magical" -- hello Rush Limbaugh -- and feels that Obama is "not really one of us" in the "normal way." Morford and those who feel like him have lost all touch with reality and the sickness is spreading.
I think that columnist Morford is off his medication, or maybe he's just drunk, or perhaps he fell on his head recently? Or perhaps Shirley MacLaine came down off the mothership and stole Mark's computer... something freaky is going on there in San Francisco, anyway. Or maybe what makes me think something weird is in the air out there is just that Morford's latest editorial is one of the most amazing examples of the wild eyed ranting of the most whacked out Obamessiah believers yet to show up in print instead of just on the nutrooter blogs. Instead of appearing in a purportedly legitimate newspaper, this is the fodder for the fantasy land of a Coast to Coast with George Noory. Instead of serious political discussion, this sort of thing belongs on Jerry Springer.
But get ready to see this sort of insane euphoria spread as Obamessiah dons his no lapel flag vestments and deigns to appear before the people who love him unconditionally, uncritically, and uninformed of anything he really stands for.
I won't bore you with his whole, nutty piece, but here are just some of the lowlights of Morford's slavish devotion to the political Svengali that is Barack Obama.
Have you lost your lunch yet? Well, you may not have lost your lunch, but this pseudo religious tripe may be proof that Morford has lost his sanity!
Naturally, Morford had to revel a bit in his Bush Derangement Syndrome and regurgitated several slams against Bush, but the real message of this rambling little editorial was in this one little segment nestled deep in Morford's ranting.
(not coweringly religious, mind you, but deeply spiritual)
And there you have it. Like most extremists, leftists Morford pretends to stand against religion when all the while he is looking for something man made to replace it. Acting as if he is too smart, too cool for superstitious religion, Morford replaces centuries old teachings with this whacked out, new agie, childishness in this case built on a mere politician. But, even as he creates his newfangled religion, like all leftists, he has to attack everyone else who subscribes to a real religion. He must belittle, degrade and ridicule religious people everywhere.
Of course, Morford realizes how silly he sounds to be as starstruck as a 13 year-old girl that is infatuated with the latest rock-n-roll boy band. He even gets so defensive about it he preemptively calls everyone one who will look at him askance all sorts of names.
This is what I find myself offering up more and more in response to the whiners and the frowners and to those with broken or sadly dysfunctional karmic antennae - or no antennae at all - to all those who just don't understand and maybe even actively recoil against all this chatter about Obama's aura and feel and MLK/JFK-like vibe.
I see, so if you don't "get" the Obamessiah fever you are "sadly dysfunctional"? It seems to me that Morford is working himself up to consider "unbelievers" in the same way Torquemada did in the 15th century! Is Morford too far from burning Obama deniers at the stake?
This sort of unrealistic, deification of Barack Obama is the sort of thing that can easily propel him into the White House. It is also the sort of thing that can cause people to imagine his presidency to have been, in hindsight, a bitter disappointment. What sane person cannot realize the expectations for an Obamessiah are simply impossible for Barack to live up to?
You think Clinton's years in office were retrospectively considered the most wasted opportunity in a life time? Wait until a president Obamessiah turns the big White House key over to a Republican to hear the lamentations of the faithful begin to ring out. The "bitterness" will likely be unbearable.
So, I have an idea. Let's defeat Obamessiah and forego all the gnashing of teeth and wearing of sackcloth that will surely be the result of an Obama presidency!
And if Mark Morford has a nervous breakdown because of it all... well, I don't know about you, but I am willing to risk that happening.

More like “Light in the loafers”.
Mr. O has is giving off gay-dar signals all over the place.
The Politico is reporting that Representative Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D, IL) said Obamas victory “overwhelmed him.”
“I cried all night. Im going to be crying for the next four years,” he said. “What Barack Obama has accomplished is the single most extraordinary event that has occurred in the 232 years of the nations political history. ...The event itself is so extraordinary that another chapter could be added to the Bible to chronicle its significance.”
I don’t know what type of psychics this Morford guy has been talking to, or what kind of spirituality they profess to follow, but I know a few myself (the majority of whom are more Christian Mystic types), and they are as scared of Obama as we are...
The fervor of the Obama supporters, and their ultimate hope and belief in him as a savior (even if they don’t use the word) is sad, and terrifying... I know that saying he is an anti-Christ puts a lot of people off. I hope we are not even CLOSE to that day, frankly. But, he definitely has the hallmarks of a “false prophet”.
Well, I’m glad I’m not the only one. Obama really creeps me out. I thought that Kerry was just your basic dumb leftist idiot and I knew we would have been in big trouble if he had won, but I didn’t think he wanted to be Master of the Universe and I thought we’d survive. Obama is a whole different thing, and I am not sure how long we’d last if he gets into power. He has an entirely different plan.
You and Dead are hands down the funniest guys on FR.
So am I. Once I saw this commie's crazy "Yes We Can" video (shades of Triumph of the Will), I started paying down my credit, packing my excess belongings, and started to get serious.
I'm less than four months from being debt free. I've got a decent supply of ammo and enough non-perishable food for several months, my car's paid off, and I can shut down my business within a couple-three more months. Then I'm off the grid and heading to Wyoming or Utah - the two most reliably free states in the West.
I'm not optimistic at all about this election because the Media has telegraphed exactly what it intends to do. Hell, look at the Friday headlines and you'll see that they intend to force this election for Herr Obama. The media's chosen its' side in this election and is not going to hesitate to broadcast anything at all to make absolutely sure that Obama wins. Watch, and I'll bet that within two months there'll be massive, widespread hit pieces against Christianity, hit pieces against rural Americans, and open attempts to subvert or repress the military and "red state" votes in advance.
I think we're a cat's hair away from some Uncle Joe-style repression and we're going to be the targets.
You are far from alone in wondering about this. THEY are the loony ones... You obviously are one with eyes to see, and ears to hear, as the passage goes.
I was commenting to my husband last night that when people turn away from God, such as most atheists, there is a HUGE gaping hole left in their heart/soul. It is this hole that is able to be filled up by whatever “savior” they then choose - most of the times this hole is filled by their heads with “science”, “intellectualism” or “skepticism”, or in other cases just pure anger and hatred.
Obama has (knowingly or unwittingly) used this to his advantage, and has begun to fill this hole with his false promises of peace, and utopia for all... And, knowing no better, they are swallowing it wholesale - because they WANT to believe. It’s unfortunate, but it is all part of God’s plan. Just remember - the good guys win in the end.
What concerns me is the fact that, for a long time, I’ve developed a knack [or whatever you call it] for “ sensitivity” and this particular being sets off alarms all over the place.
This is no exaggeration...I am literally physically sickened by him.
I avoid all news shows now just to minimize the risk that I’ll have to look at him.
Every election cycle makes me jittery about the outcome, sure, but I’ve always consoled myself that either way, it’ll just be more of the same ol’ same ol’....but not this time.
There’s just an unbearable electrical heaviness in the atmosphere, if that makes any sense.
[shibumi, explain this for me]....LOL!
Thanks. Spread the word and point others to that “AUDACITY OF TRUTH” site. The more we can educate and inform, the better.

I get the same feeling from him, Salamander. As you said - it’s not “politics as usual”. There is definitely something much, much, more sinister about him and his affect on people.
“This is going to be an unbearable 5 months.”
No doubt... Plus McPain continues to lose me and I have to vote for him..
Sad, I watched Bob Barr on Glen Beck tonight, he’s the rockstar - I wish he was the GOP nom... Or somehow we could move mountains and get a 3rd party elected... dreaming I know.
The Anti-Christ has to come out of eastern Turkey, northern Iraq, western Iran. The Selucid Empire.
Obama is most likely the False Prophet. The Anti-Christ’s henchman.
That’s interesting. Cause I was thinkin just today that Michele looks a lot like Casius Clay when he was about 25 .... although not as pretty.
morford is a vile homo radical from SF that considers Heterosexual couples who have children to be mentally ill “Breeders”. That he looks to “the one” as his god tells me all I need to know.
I keep hoping someone will tell me I’m just crazy so I can sleep better....:(
I already shut down my business and have lots of debt. Other than that, have plenty of ammo and years' worth of dried food and the rest. When TSHTF, I will head into the wilderness here in eastern WA/OR and Idaho thinking of the debt with glee, because it will never be paid and they won't find me.
Sorry ‘bout that...
Don’t be...trying to run from the truth never makes it go away.
I just have to find a good way to deal with this for next 5 months.
[But I do wonder what God thinks of prayers that consist mostly of “Oh please don’t let *him* get elected”, repeated frequently and fervently. I just hope He listens]
Have you noticed the hyper sibilance that he often places on the s sound at the end of many words? This bastid is as creepy as a rattler!!!!
I hear you, so do I... I can honestly only handle reading and writing about him a little at a time. If I focus too hard on it all I burn out very fast. That won’t stop me from working against him, but it’s odd for me to be that way.
As for the prayers... A lot of mine have been the same way. Just last night I was praying exactly like that... However, I may not pray about this specific subject right before going to sleep as I ended up dreaming about Barack last night (OK, it was more like a nightmare) - I don’t remember much of it - except that at one point he handed me a night light. There must be some symbolism there... Laughing now, but kinda scary at the same time...
OMG...that’s why I avoid looking him like the plague!
The dream is creepy.
It reminds me of the “messianic” mania.
“The way, the truth and the LIGHT”.
May your dreams be free of such things, in the future.
[Stephen King must laughing his butt off right now....”The Walkin’ Dude” may be here]
[let me know if you dream of an elderly, godly black woman living in a cabin in the middle of a corn field]....:)
Careful...or you will be slapped with a carbon emission tax.
My thoughts exactly LOL -
I remember how hard it was for me to hear Bill's voice/see his face...it caused the same reaction: fury, frustration, a kind of unclean feeling. With BHO, its just flat out dread. And it isnt just him that makes me feel that way, but all the followers. Randall Flagg indeed...
I never thought of it that way. An interpretation I found online for “nightlight” was; “you have the answer within you”. Kind of odd because I was asking him a question about a word he used in a speech he had just delivered, and his handing me the nightlight was his “answer”. Your insight makes a lot of sense, too... He certainly sees himself as a messiah of sorts - “the one we have been waiting for” - Oprah even refers to him as “The One”. Scary indeed!
ROFL - I LOVED The Stand! LOL And, yes, I will let you know if I do! ;)
You know, through all of this the way I calm myself is by remembering - this is all a part of God’s plan, He is in control - OH, and the good guys win in the end! ;) LOL
Take care and have a good night, Salamander - “signing off” for the time being...
I don't think I've seen funnier, more apt, more off the wall comment on FR for a long time
"My child, you have come to me my son. For who now is your father if it is not me? I am the well spring, from which you flow. When I am gone, you will have never been. What would your world be, without me?"
“Obama is a ‘Rare Kind of Attuned Being,’ a ‘Lightworker’”
So many stupid people..
If America elects this racist bastard to power, we deserve every EVIL thing we have coming to us.
Get ready to bend over and kiss you butt goodbye.
If he sets his election headquarters up in Las Vegas, we’re screwed....:))
Good night, LR.
[and check your FReepmail]
“Get ready to bend over and kiss you butt goodbye.”
Not if I can help it.
I guess that should help sew up the bathhouse vote...
Yes. We actually haven’t had a Ms. Morford column posted in quite a while. Direct postings are much more fun than those filtered through NewsBusters.
I thought he seemed alien too. Like from hell.
Several years ago, when the primaries were being held in Illinois for the Senatorial election, I heard a talk show host, Jay Marvin state that he was going to vote for Barack Obama. Despite the fact that I had absolutely no idea who the guy was, I was overcome with apprehension and a distinct physical chill.
I thought the danger would lie dormant in Washington for a few more years.
I was wrong.
You are not the only ones who experience physical revulsion at the sight of him. My wife, a woman of impeccable instinct felt it before even knowing that he was a Democrat!
“Lightworker” has become a catchphrase of the New Age movement. In reality it's someone who wants desperately to feel superior to you, but hasn't got a real job. That's the benign form that it takes - filling in a void with pseudospiritual blather and a sense of self-righteousness.
Obama is something else, however. He is the embodiment of the malignant and malevolent side of the New Age.
“These people are counterfeit apostles, dishonest workers disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. There is nothing astonishing in this; even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.” 2 Corinthians 11, 13-14.
Satan's original name of course, was Lucifer, from the Latin "Lux" (light) and "ifer" (bearer.) There are almost more references to this phenomenon in scripture than can be counted.
(Curious aside. When I spell checked this post, it flagged the word "self-righteousness" and the only alternative offered was "sulfurousness.")
LOL, your killing me!!!
“for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.”
>I avoid all news shows now just to minimize the risk that Ill have to look at him.<
Wow. I thought I was the only one who did that. I don’t even want to think of his winning or even be reminded that he could.
I don’t get physically ill though. Just a real bad vibe.
Obama - “... a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will
come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany ... and you will
suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Obama”
“Obama - Building a Religion”
I had never heard the term "Lightworker" before. You're absolutely right, it is a but a tiny concept shift from that to Lucifer. Underneath all of those rays of golden light is a really ugly lust for power.
You are not the only one who feels the way you do.
I can’t stand his voice, his so-called “charming, hypnotic” voice. It’s instantly muted.
I don’t think he is the AC, but his fruits don’t show he is Christian, either.
Amen to what you just typed. :)
Whom they speak of is the "Lord Maitreya"
Lord Maitreya means Lord of Love. Lord Maitreya has held the office of World Teacher in the Hierarchy; He assumed the office of the Buddha on January 1, 1956, but still holds a connection and a certain action with His former position. The Master Kuthumi and Jesus have jointly assumed this office. Maitreya has been known through the centuries as the Great Initiator, under the old or occult law. He represented the Cosmic Christ to mankind of Earth which was a similar action to the individual as that of his own Christ Self. This was necessary because mankind had gotten into so much discord and density that their own Christ Selves no longer responded or acted in that respect or degree in the outer self. Therefore, the Great Initiator represented and acted for the Christ Self of an individual on the Path to a certain extent. That is why it was necessary for Jesus manifestation of the Christ in/through a physical body. This plan was so designed beforehand, as being the best way to convince or/and leave an example of the Christ Action for the con-sciousness of mankind who were not comprehending be-yond the world of form. Lord Maitreya was not an incarnation of Jesus (They are two separate lifestreams). He enfolded Jesus in His Cosmic Flame and thereby manifested the Christ Consciousness through Jesus form. He likewise enfolded Saint Patrick, another individual in a physical body. Now that the Cosmic Light is flooding the Earth and its atmosphere It (the Cosmic Light) acts as the Initiator to mankind. There is more and more expansion of the individuals own light as the Cosmic Light increases. Finally when mankind and the Earth have been cleansed of all impurities the inner bodies (emotional, mental and etheric) and the atmosphere of Earth will become all light, and the individuals own Christ Self will again take full command of the outer self. Lord Maitreya came to Earth from Venus as a guar-dian. He knew His greatest light in embodiment in the East with Lord Himalaya. He has a Focus in the Himalayan Mountains. He has violet eyes and golden hair. His keynote is Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life, by Victor Herbert. He usually wears a white robe. Lord Maitreya anchored a ray from the realms of light into New York City and one into Los Angeles on October 8, 1937, to hold a balance in America on the east and west coasts of the United States for the incoming age. He now holds the position as the Buddha; He carries out the activities of ceremonies to relieve Lord Gautama as much as possible, since His inclination is not along that line.
"Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow: The New Age Movement and Our Coming Age of Barbarism" by Constance Cumbey was a book I read many years ago and Morford article reminded me of it with their fawning adoration of Obama.
The anti God left has been waiting for an "Obama" for a long time to fill that Messiah yearning that will fix their broken world.
I think I will reread the book
See post #97
Yep. I was wondering if anyone was going to point out the “lightworker” - “Lucifer” - “Angel of light” connection.
This isn’t the first time I’ve seen this “lightworker” babble coming from the “new agers” in connection to Obama either.
It’s amazing how many people feel a sense of foreboding when they see or hear him. I keep trying to tell myself that my revulsion for this man lies in knowing that he’s a marxist swaddled in a nice suit, but I know Hillary is a marxist, and I never felt anything but dislike and scorn for her and Billy. I know it’s not some subconscious “fear” coming out of me, being ‘ascared’ of a black man being the president, because I’d be proud and thrilled to vote for a black conservative (any conservative!)if a viable candidate ever came along.
There is definitely something “different” about this guy, and it doesn’t feel good to me.
And no “reverend” Jackson, we can’t add another chapter to the end of the bible. Sorry, the good guy wins. End of story. No need for an Obama epilogue.
Look at Obama’s supposed “Christian” reverends too. One takes the name of the Lord in vain from the pulpit, and the other “reverend” thinks Obama’s story needs it’s own chapter in the bible. Nice blasphemous “Christian” reverends you have backing your campaign, Mr. Hussein.
Obama claimns that he’s a Christian, but makes fun of Christians as being backward hicks that aren’t voting for him simply because they’re too racist, and his “preacher” breaks commandments from the pulpit. Yeah Osama, forgive me for EVER having the audacity to question your true faith. What the hell was I thinking?
