Holy Crap

Audience fainting.

Candidate passes ‘holy water’ to afflicted.

Parting the crowd.

Hartford, Connecticut:

And when a woman appeared to faint in the standing-only VIP section in front of the podium, Obama paused his speech for over a minute as he directed the crowd to make way for an EMT team and tossed a bottle of water from the stage. Source

Seattle:

Climate change, the Iraq war and Obama tossing a bottle of water to a woman about to faint all received big cheers. As Obama told the crowd to part so that the woman in question could leave and called for help, a young girl in the crowd shouted out, “What a man!” Source

Los Angeles, California

A woman standing in front of the stage appeared to faint as Obama spoke about Iraq. The candidate paused and asked the crowd to make way for firefighters. Source

Mama Winger at Little Green Footballs :

People not used to religious symbolism will be swept away. Because whether they know it or not, they are hungry for the spiritual . And even if it comes to them as evil disguised as good, they will not be able to discern the difference.

buzzsawmonkey at Little Green Footballs :

Those who are fundamentally irreligious end up applying the religious impulse to other things, and seek their salvation without guide or control–with disastrous result.

Whether they look to science, and thereby ascribe morality to that which is innately amoral; whether they look to politics, and delude themselves that salvation will be found in a particular Leader; or whether they revert, unconsciously, to paganisms such as Gaia-worship, they are engaging in a religious quest which their antipathy to religion has spun out of control.

    Barack Obama, Superstar!

    Who are you, what kind of change are you talking about?

    Adoph Hitler could really rally those masses, and Olde Joe Stalin could make them walk barefoot through broken glasses, And Ho Chin Minn, he could bring the crowd in, and that Po Pot he know how his words could make them hot…

    Now do you believe?

    Now Marshall Applewhite made them think that they were going to go to Heaven on a comet, and David Koresh he sent his faithful on a path to Armageddon. And of course we all know about olde Jim Jones. His people did what he told em and that Kool-aid got overflowin…

    Now do you believe? (the mesmerized crowd shouts back Yes we Believe) Now do you believe?(louder) Yes, we believe! Hallelujah now get that sister some water (the front row of women then faints).

    Barack Obama, Superstar,

    Now do you see yourself as as Che’s Second comin… Or maybe you set yourself up on a path even higher. Perhaps you do see yourself as the new Messiah, start a new religion with you as its idol.

    Do you believe?

    Cults of personalities well they very rarely end well and with yours it could set the earth a trembling… For when you come unglued as all cult leaders in the end do, you could push that nuclear button and set the earth afire..

    The difference between the chatterer ‘Little green footballs’ and Lionheart is background and character. ‘Little spleen noballs’ is more privileged/chattering at the expense of street reality and Lionheart has street reality at the expense of education/articulation/chattering, hence lgf supporters are of a cretain type- usually smug college educated conservatives who have the luxury to lambast all around them, especially those who are on the same side of the fence but are seen to be inferior. i.e lower social, financial, educational standing. Somehow it is then taken as effrontery, the attention that they seem to see as theirs and theirs alone has been usurped by an undesireable- at least the tone of the anti-Lionheart people suggests a smug superiority and arrogance. I would not go to ‘Lgf’ types to find out the barometer of muslim society, what or how muslims think or what islam is about. I would go to Lionheart types who may actually be able to give me practical as well as ideological info on what I can expect walking through a heavily populated muslim area and areas of distinct different islamic identity. That info can only be got from individuals who have spent some time on the street – not by those who travel from A to B in their cars and have no contact with these people on a daily basis for most of their time. The ‘drive-everywheres’ and chattering classes such as ‘Lgf’s ilk have a much more cosseted unrealistic view of threat. Lionheart for his lack of education and chattering has probably more wisdom and experience than ‘Lgf’ and most ‘Lgf‘ supporters – and they resent this. I would pay heed to him before any of you. You all, yes…all, sound very smug…too educated and chattered for your own good with not much wisdom, common sense or humility. When you see that, you know people are full of something(chatter) and it aint good.

    In short, your heads are up your arses and you’re full of shit. In essence your little cosy smug cossetted frat house is miffed and your noses have been snubbed. You are hissy fitting that a human being you perceive as inferior is getting more attention. In truth your ego’s are dented. Nothing worse when the gates are opened by treacherous weasels from within, you twats are the enemy within. In contempt- you are fraudsters, liars and cowards occupying a cosy perch sniping at those who put their lives on the line. Insidious- you are the worst form of enemy!
