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.

One thing the Rats might have overlooked; it will provide some very good pictures and symbolism as it crumbles down and gets removed.

Your’e not alone in wondering if this is satire believe me! While it wouldn’t surprise me if Obama thought this was a good idea, surely someone on his campaign team would realize how creepy it is I would think. Maybe not....

Wonder how much the jet fly-over is going to cost us?

These days it seems like every 2-bit sporting event has one, so apparently the budget considers it in the category of enlistment/recruitment advertising?

I wonder what it would take for a rogue USAF pilot to do a *low flyover* by the sculpture....or one well-placed M-80.

Daffy, it's made out of sand ... a nice, strong urine stream should do the trick

hang on, what about beach erosion, what about turtles who come to nest, what about this is the hurricane season and that sand is needed.

Building a creepy statue out of sand to make it look like Mt Rushmore is down right bizarre, next they will want him on Mt Rushmore

just finished reading all the posts and it seems real but you are correct, with the Dems these days you don;t know what is satire or real as they’re really far out of moderate mainstream today.

WOW JUST WOW, stunning, statues, sculptures portraits etc for a guy who has never really done much in his life, bit like te nobel peace prize.

Most definitely out. A few days ago I was reading that some Leftist group was planning on protesting the convention.

Come to think of it, we heard very little about protests at the Republican convention. Strange...

WOW. That kind of crap is right out of North Korea.

The style reminds me of the official Martin Luther King statue on the Mall. The commission was given to a Chinese sculptor who spent his professional life designing hundreds of statues of Mao Tse Tung, for distribution all over China. He even admitted in an interview that he made MLK "look more Chinese", and never show the least bit of humor, or humanity, in his expression.

I think this is a trial run for a statue on Mt Rushmore.

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

And I'll lay odds we'll be required to bow down to them under threat of being thrown into a fiery furnace, ala the Book of Daniel.

Charlotte so many cities are ruled by the left and many of these cities are now seeing their city go to crap.

I remember some black guys I worked with who used ot complain aout all thes yuppies moving into their areas, thus driving up prices, thus forcing blacks out of their homes.

The left preaches diversity but they sure as hell do not live it.
They think Having a Mexican meal on a Friday and a Chinese meal on a Saturday is diversity to them and thinks that makes them culutural

The MLK sculpture also has really enormous lips (much thicker proportionately than those of the real MLK). I guess that was his nod to the fact that MLK was not Chinese.

Bows and flows of angel hair

And feather canyons everywhere

But now he only blocks the sun
He rains and snows on everyone
So many things I could have done

But "Creepy" is not the right term. This is right out of some Bolshevik Communist cult of personality formula. Has there ever been anything like this in an American Presidential campaign, before?

Look, it was very clear in 2008 that there were parallels between some of Obama's techniques, and some of Hitler's techniques in the early 1930s. Of course, we do not know that the parallels were intentional. But whether intentional, or coincidental, they reflect a myopic vision of a demagogue's own importance. The chanting in unison in stadiums--as opposed to merely cheering in ordinary meeting halls for major speeches--is but one example.

Obama's present campaign, singling out the !%'ers, as scape-goats in a bad economy, may be only a coincidental number; but Hitler's selection of the Jews for the same purpose in 1930's Germany, was significant. (The German Jews were not only a very successful segment of the population, they were also about 1% of the population.) Merely a coincidence, or formula demogoguery?

This man does not intend to lose, whether the public is waking up or not.

A Stalinist cult of personality, combined with Nazi crowd manipulation formulas? Is this acceptable behavior for a man running for President of the Federal Republic once led by George Washington--a wealthy & successful man, whom we remember--image wise--as kneeling in humble Prayer at Valley Forge?
