    You know what's really cool? You're always free to not post in a thread that you don't find to have merit.

    Edited:

    I agree and often I leave such threads alone. However, in this case, I believe it is better to say something because this not only has no merit, but it has negative merit. It is taking something innocent and expanding it to paranoia. Such is not healthy, useful, or good. Given that it is solely negative, its best to point that out (and harshly) because this sort of misrepresentation is misleading and does nothing to promote active political discussion. In fact, I would say this sort of thread is the opposite of what this forum seems to be about and as such, there is merit in calling it.

    But you knew that.
    What, you mean just exactly like the OP? Could it be I was subtly making fun of the original post here?

    But you knew that.(see what I did there?)

    All he did was post a video, and a quote from wikipedia. With no reasoning as to why he made the thread.

    Though, I'm assuming he his trying to make Obama into some Hitler like villain, by posting some video of people shouting his name, and posting a definition from wikipedia.
    I was just asking for clarification, and hoping for an answer that wasn't so idiotic.

    Yes, I see what you did there. You kept trolling.

    Actually, since I have added more to the actual discussion than you, I think you might want to re-examine things.

    OMFG Obama is Stalin with a shaving kit and a suntan!!1!!!!11!1!1

    is he really setting up a cult of personality when a) he is not in the video at all; and b) i sincerely doubt he calls up random teachers and tells them to have school kids chant his name.

    What analytical skill were being displayed in the least in the OP?

    There's nothing analytical here to discuss. At all.

    It's merely more "Obama is a black Nazi trying to burn down America by mind-melding with our children and making us all have gay sex and abort the babies as he takes our guns and turn us all into brownshirted Socialists."

    Is there a policy being discussed or criticized here? Nope.

    What are we to take away from this?

    That if young black kids are devoting themselves to academics by meeting the president's challenge, it's a "cult of personality"?

    What is the people who name EVERYTHING, including their dogs poops, for Ronald Reagan? What about the people who complain about how HIGH their taxes are right now, when they're lower than they were during most of Reagan's term? Or those that complain about amnesty for illegals when the first president to do it was their beloved Ronald Reagan?

    Let's analyze that cult of personality, shall we?

    Or can we recognize that every president ends up developing a bit of a cult of personality because it's the nature of the office in the media age? Indeed, I would question one who doesn't - because it means they're completely ineffective in developing support from their followers.

    But, instead we can just sit around and pretend that the other side is worse because it suits our partisan needs.

    Trolling? Maybe. Waaaaay off topic and irrelevant to the subject of the thread? Definitely.
