Disclaimer: I just know I'm going to make somebody mad by posting this, so just remember: I have the right to my opinion.
So, I've been really bad at blogging lately, and I promise I will have a real post up sometime this week. This is just a quickie to share something that I found disturbing. I guess this has been floating around for a while now, but I just encountered it today. Would you like to see a bunch of Obamatrons read cue cards and spout meaningless tripe? Okay, here you go:
My reaction: Okay, yes, it would be nice to end world hunger and use less energy and 'smile more' and all of that. I'm all for improving the world around me. It does make me slightly sick to hear these hypocritical celebrities tell me to 'do my part', but that's not what really bugs me about this video. The scary part is at the end. It's the monotone Automaton voices intoning "I pledge to be a servant to Barack Obama. I pledge to SERVE our president" that really freaks me out.
A servant? To OBAMA? Wait. Wait wait wait. If anything, isn't the president supposed to be a servant to his country? Poor lonely Obama. He needs us to just blindly do whatever he says so that we can make his job easier. Ugh.
