I have a new article at RightBias.com about the similarities between Obama and Chairman Mao:
Those who ignore the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them.
When Barack Obama was campaigning for president in 2007, his backers frequently compared him to former president John F. Kennedy. After a year in office, however, President Obama’s words and actions align more closely with China’s despotic Chairman Mao than with JFK’s.
When Mao Tse Tung conquered China in 1949, his secret goal was to dominate the world. When Obama was elected President, many started referring to him as President of the World. Both Obama and Mao had carte blanche to set out a path of radical change.
As part of his strategy, Mao informed his top echelon, “There has to be a personality cult…it is absolutely necessary.”* With the aid of the state media, Mao crafted an iconic image of himself as the savior of the common man. Propoganda was everywhere – including the fields where workers could listen to messages from Mao as they worked. Sound familiar?
