Appalled Briton Observes Obama Cult

, ,

Peter Hitchens vents his spleen on America’s decline in the Daily Mail.

Anyone would think we had just elected a hip, skinny and youthful replacement for God, with a plan to modernise Heaven and Hell – or that at the very least John Lennon had come back from the dead.

The swooning frenzy over the choice of Barack Obama as President of the United States must be one of the most absurd waves of self-deception and swirling fantasy ever to sweep through an advanced civilisation. At least Mandela-worship – its nearest equivalent – is focused on a man who actually did something.

I really don’t see how the Obama devotees can ever in future mock the Moonies, the Scientologists or people who claim to have been abducted in flying saucers. This is a cult like the one which grew up around Princess Diana, bereft of reason and hostile to facts.

Read the whole thing.

One Feedback on "Appalled Briton Observes Obama Cult"

Altho no Brit is ever totally accurate in analyses of the U S, this fellow sees clearly through the pink mist surrounding Obama. We don’t know how this story is going to come out, but his background gives us little reason for optimism.

What’s wrong with our home-grown conservative pundits? They are all so “hopeful!” As if hope alone was a valid concept in judging the nation’s future.
