DNC Erecting Creepy Giant Obama Sculpture

Forget the marble pillars, this time there will be a giant 16-foot sculpture of Obama made out of 15.5 tons of sand at the Democratic National Convention. Building a giant sand sculpture of a living leader might be considered a bit tacky with its worshipful implications, but building one during a hurricane in South Carolina is in particularly bad taste.

But if nothing else, at least Obama has found one “Shovel Ready Project”. And this isn’t even the creepiest giant Obama sand sculpture ever made. The winner of that particular competition is still Sudarsan Pattnaik with this nightmare made out of sand.

    I am liking this quick blurbs quick a bit.
    This messianic worship of Obama is more than troubling. It is deeply disturbing.

    • http://www.facebook.com/phillip.ley1 Phillip Ley

      He encourages it, in the same vein as Castro, Chavez, Stalin, Lenin, Saddam, Hitler. His narcissism, in fact, requires it.

      • Omar

        Don't forget all the Che monuments. The so-called "guerrilla fighter" who killed and imprisoned so many innocent people is worshiped like a saint in the minds of the useful idiots in academia and elsewhere.

        • traeh

          Not just Che. Dictators have almost always had HUGE posters and statues of themselves all over the place. In a civilized society, by contrast, it is not appropriate to have a statue of a politician until after the pol is dead — if at all.

        • traeh

          Some will counter that at the GOP convention, there were huge images of Romney — but one could point out that those were merely video images to allow the crowd to see Romney from a distance when he was speechifying. But that retort wouldn't be entirely be fair. There were huge still images of Romney on the stage at the GOP convention — so I guess one could argue that was to some extent an idolization, not merely a way to let people see Romney talking. But then one could retort to that and argue that Romney's big still images were not constantly on the stage. Obama's statue will presumably be there the whole time, constantly in view, constantly the cynosure of the whole deal. And then, too, Obama is surely much closer than Romney to the spirit of the dictator.

          • Omar

            Those who complain about Romney images don't know the difference between a good leader and an autocrat. Romney is a hero to the American people and he would make a great leader. It all depends on the leader's persona.

        That’s it exactly. Look everywhere in countries with Marxist/Maoist/Fascist dictators and you see them everywhere…sculptures, paintings, murals, statues, etc.

        • Omar

          Mao's huge image can still be found in Beijing's Tiananmen Square, where 23 years ago the worst massacre in history took place at that very spot in Beijing. To this day, the CCP government continues to justify the atrocity at Tiananmen while blocking any internet access to the true information (and photos) about the atrocity. The government that Mao founded continues to bully its people and others. Yet, Mao is idolized by the radical "academic" at the universities in the West. That is so ridiculous.

      I want a president that believes in America, not one that wants America to believe in him. At the RNC Convention you hear chants of U-S-A, U-S-A! At the DNC Convention, you'll hear chants of O-Bam-A, O-Bam-A! This convention and indeed this entire presidency is a giant ego trip for this man. I hope he enjoys it while it lasts. 66 more days.

      It's downright un-American.

      "I would just like to say something, ladies and gentlemen. Something that I think is very important. It is that, you, we — we own this country.

      We — we own it. It is not you owning it, and not politicians owning it. Politicians are employees of ours.

      I just think it is important that you realize , that you’re the best in the world. Whether you are a Democrat or Republican or whether you’re libertarian or whatever, you are the best. And we should not ever forget that. And when somebody does not do the job, we got to let them go. " Clint Eastwood.

      Susan,

      I am with you on the need to pray, pray, pray. I truly feel we are in the end times… if not then we are damned close. This statute mes me think of Revelations and all that is going to happen. I Praise God that they will have to stand before God…just as we will…to answer to everything they have done.

      The sculpture does not even resemble Obama. I just want to let you know there are people standing with you in prayer.

      God Bless,

    The Liberal Media acts like children… the protestors in the liberal streets, acts like children… Why would we think that the organizers of the DNC would not act childish.. they come from the same place. Just like the President (In title only) he focuses on all things that don't matter.. he avoids the real issues… SO.. the DNC will do the same.. at all cost… avoid the key issues !!.. created deception and diversions while talking about so much about nothing that they lull you asleep and you either give up or actually fall asleep.

    Good Lord, was this sand sculpture done by the same Chinese "artist" who did the MLK Memorial abomination and all those "Chairman Mao" sculptures? Looks like some of the pictures that I remember of Idi Amin in Uganda. Obama NEVER grins like that, he has always got that sanctimonious scowl on his face. Always trying to be taken so seriously. Epic Fail!

    Obama = God, magical powers, or alien technology?

This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal…. " (Obama's Nomination Victory Speech in St. Paul June 3, 2008)

    "I am going to try to be so persuasive, so that those of you who are still wavering…will suddenly come to the conclusion — a light beam will shine through — will light you up — and you will experience an epiphany — I have to vote for Barack!" (Barack Obama, Lebanon, New Hampshire Jan. 7,2008)
