Humor Creepy Obama sign by Jeffrey Miller August 8, 2008 written by Jeffrey Miller August 8, 2008 Since others are having fun with the Obama sign I thought I would join in. Made me think of this. Gateway Pundit thinks this is a gesture stolen from the Star Trek “Space Hippies” episode. One commenter said it stood for zero experience.

Matt August 8, 2008 - 2:58 pm The Eye of Sauron! Nice! Uriah Heep August 8, 2008 - 3:03 pm It stands for the Year Zero that the Khmer Bleu will return us to as soon as their leader Obama takes office. Subvet August 8, 2008 - 3:27 pm Love the eye of Sauron, I’ll be posting it on my own blog with all due credit. Paul H August 8, 2008 - 4:02 pm I hate to say this, but it reminded me of a twisted version of the priest elevating the host during Mass, or of a host in a monstrance (with the rays of light or whatever emanating from the circle in the middle). Mel August 8, 2008 - 4:06 pm Stolen from the University of Oregon “O” hand sign made by the deranged idiots. When Obama was here in Eugene at the U of O for a rally (Twice) the crowd was doing this. Hence, the Obama campaign must have picked up on that. Catholic Audio August 8, 2008 - 4:32 pm Jeff, You absolutely have to post this picture. God Bless, Ryan Rob in Maine August 8, 2008 - 6:42 pm The best Obama parody I have heard is Queen’s “Flash Gordon” theme sung to Barack Obama BA-RACK! OBAMAAAAA! Savior of the Universe! Boom boom boom boom BA-RACK! OBAMAAAAA! He’s a MIracle! He’s for everyone of us! Stands for every one of us! He saves with a might hand everybody, every woman, every child, every man! BA-Raaaack! AWASHINGTONDCCATHOLIC August 8, 2008 - 6:47 pm Subvet is correct…the second poster is more Lord of the Rings. As a great fan of the LOTR, all I can say is: I LOVE IT! LarryD August 8, 2008 - 10:54 pm Good job! I only hope his campaign doesn’t have palantirs… Aelric August 8, 2008 - 11:16 pm Clearly, this “sign” shows that Obama is gauchiphobic; the placement of the dexter hand over the sinister places left-handed people in a subservient position. I call on the Obama campaign to apologize to all southpaws and create a handedness-neutral symbol. /sarcasm Elliot B August 9, 2008 - 2:35 am Wow. I really am out of the loop here in Taiwan. I had no idea Obama was being vaunted to such cringe-worthy heights of pseudo-messiahhood. The first things I thought of were, 1. the poster being a mockery of the raising of the Blessed Sacrament in the Mass, and 2. some kind of lewd play on Obama’s name (Senator O-Ring, and the like). Whatever the cult status of Obama may be in them yonder States I call home, I think this symbol is just terrible. It actually makes me feel ill. It’s so poorly conceived. Or, perhaps, so wonderfully misconceived. It really is just a big void, a floating zero, and that is the wrong message to send if you back Obama. Further, how does it stand for hope? Is an empty circle a symbol I missed? The most disturbing thing about this hopeless “hOpe” symbol is that it equates, again, grotesquely, hope with the very person of Obama. A presidential candidate is never supposed to be a “great person”, but to be a great president, a great leader and servant of the country. The presidential office, like the papacy, should be, and is, bigger than any specific individual who may do it honor or dishonor. This kind of (literally) vacuous symbolism only reinforces in the American collective unconscious the long-standing split between civic duty and professional politicking. (Why do so few people vote? Because they suffer from a bone-deep despair about the utility of the citizenry, themselves, in politics.) By coalescing hope into the very name of Obama, citizens are displacing their own share of national hope into the individual duties and privileges of Obama as a professional politician. Something about all your eggs in one basket. “Since WE, lowly we, can’t do anything about the country,” these O-ringers convey, “we need to put our empty hopes in Obama’s empty hands.” Think about it: hands raised over the head are an unequivocal symbol of defeat and capitulation. This is something like what I mean: http://www.theonion.com/content/video/today_now_how_to_pretend_you_give?utm_source=videomrss_83729 Heheh. Oh and if Obama wins, we’re going to have to blame him for the arrival of Planet Nibiru in 2012. Mr Flapatap August 9, 2008 - 8:09 am Who was it that said that if you don’t believe in God you are likely to believe in anything? Elliot B August 9, 2008 - 12:46 pm Mr Flapatap: I believe that was GK Chesterton. I believe that was GK Chesterton. 😉 The absence of God is the presence of idols. Jeff “Curt Jester Blog Host Supreme” Miller: Thanks for you comment on my post about “caput absentum”. Don’t be a stranger to FCA. And be extra nice to IC’s sacristan, ya hear now! 😉 Elliot B August 9, 2008 - 12:58 pm Oh and I’m variously calling the thing the “Obamark”, the “Obawand Cannotbe”, the “Obal”, the “O-Baal”, or the “O-Ring”. Viral spoof frenzy, anyone? Marc August 9, 2008 - 1:18 pm “We Reach”? I was thinking more of that cheesy “Guardian of Forever”thing. MissJean August 9, 2008 - 6:27 pm The Sign of the Obama-Nation?!?! All hail the mighty eye of Saurobama…. Bob the Ape August 10, 2008 - 6:48 am If elected, Obama will give America the big O? Mr Flapatap August 10, 2008 - 7:07 am Actually looks like they are “hoping” to choke someone. SDG August 11, 2008 - 2:20 pm “The best Obama parody I have heard is Queen’s “Flash Gordon” theme sung to Barack Obama” Does this exist in more than the very brief clips on the YouTube video with Obama and Superman? I would love to hear more. vee8 August 11, 2008 - 8:52 pm At first I thought the top picture was a spoof too then I realized it wasnt and man is that ever creepy! I wonder if it ties in at all with the support Obama gets from Oprah a woman known by one letter O, a woman who has the largest church in America spouting all kinds of new earth junk?! cminor August 12, 2008 - 9:23 pm Gosh, I’d like to say something funny about this–all I can think is how like those 1930’s IWW posters the style is. And funny that ain’t. THOMAS LUKE BOMHACK August 13, 2008 - 10:47 am OMG and silly me I thought God was all I needed. That was before the annussed one showed me that all is nothing and nothing is all. All praise to his wholeiness OOOOOhbammmmma debi September 9, 2008 - 2:19 am “The Jewish Talmud (book of tradition/interpretation) says, “When the moon is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel. If its face is as red as blood, [it is a sign that] a glitterning sword is coming to the world.” The word for a glittering sword according to the Hebrew is: Baraq or Barak. Barak, Baraq, Barack, Barach, Bariach….. Another Hebrew word is barach, also represents barak: To kneel, to bless God (as a act of adoration), AND THE VICE VERSA, (man), as a benifit, also by euphemism, to curse God or the King, as treason; altogether blaspheme, which represents the hebrew bariach: A figitive as fleeing, as THE SERPENT, AND THE CONSTELLATION BY THAT NAME. Hussein – meaning: A Lion Obama/Obamah: meaning the eye of Baal O – representing Ayin – meaning: (The eye) Bamah representing the Phoenician diety Baal OBAMAH – meaning: The eye of Baal As we take a look at the all seeing eye of Egypt, we look to the Hebrew Strong’s Dictionary for the name according to the Phoenician god, that reference # is 1117 also #1120, and #1168 which is: Bamah. See Ezekiek 20 verse 29. The curious image is most often referred to as the all seeing eye or “eye of providence.” The eye, usually depicted in the sky looking out upon the earth, is an ancient symbol of the sun, and historically has been used as a symbol of omniscience. The idea of the solar eye comes to us from the Egyptians, who equated the eye with the deity, Osiris and Ra and Horus. This emblem was eventually adopted by Freemasons as a symbol for the Great Architect. A version of this symbol, elaborate onto the capstone of a pyramid (the symbol’s origins in Egypt) forms part of the Seal of the United States, accompanied by the slogan, Annuit Coeptis , “It (Providence) has favored our undertakings.” http://www.officialbhuldahcompany.com/theoriginalgreekhebrew.htm just a commenter November 6, 2008 - 9:56 am Here is a scary comparison of this picture. http://bytwerk.com/gpa/images/hoff1/hitler5.jpg The hands of the Führer organize his speech. This picture captures Hitler’s hands as he speaks of the unity of the National Socialist and socialist ideas. He makes an “O” it was his symbol for the word “Organisieren” which means Organize.
