In this week’s analysis behind the news video, JBS CEO Art Thompson discusses: the expensive inauguration of President Obama; disturbing references to Obama as a messiah; the definition of an assault weapon; a good Wall Street Journal article by John Lott entitled, “The Facts About Assault Weapons and Crime”; a quote from Patrick Henry regarding how the Constitution is an instrument for the People to restrain the government; and whether the Arab Spring in Egypt has produced a hater of Jews.
One thought on “An Obama Cult?”
Art Thompson is right that it is a lot like the Imperial Cult of the Romans and the Greeks, in which the national leader was worshiped as a God. It is a little more subtle today, but exactly the same concept. Self-worship is an instinct in man that goes back to tribal societies and it is still with us today. People do it often unconsciously, without even realizing what they are doing.
