Obamatrons

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.

I hate when celebrities think the rest of us can't think for ourselves, and their wonderful opinions will sway us to their way of thinking. I like them better when they keep their mouths shut.
That was creepy at the end. Also, what made me really laugh was when someone said something like "I pledge to not use plastic anymore..." my first thought was that she meant to not use plastic surgery anymore. Anyway... I laughed.

Wow that is really creepy. Hahaha I had the same thought as Ashlie about the plastic. That was too good. Also the whole I'm American not African American - BS! - you know everyone voted for obama because he's what, PARTIALLY black. I'm so sick of it all.

You know the whole "obama" situation scares me to DEATH. I just try not to think about it because it very very scary to think that sociaty is so brainwashed that just because Oprah was voting for him or because he is "blacK" then we all should just go with the flow and vote him as commander and cheif of our part of the world...who cares about where he comes from, what his views are, or what kind of people he hangs around. Too scary to think about and very very sad.
