Saddam and the Art of Personality Cults
Peeing on one of Saddam’s Personality Cult monuments…
Whilst humble Low and Ignorant Insane swamp hermit me attempts to understand the phenomenon of Personality Cults, i am reminded of something that i once heard that went sorta like this: ‘Many humans don’t seek Freedom since they are so busy just seeking for a Just Taskmaster.’ Not an exact quote, and one that i could not find even after an hour or so of searching on the Internet, but close enough to explain what a “Personality Cult” or what a herd of sheep or what America’s Democrat Party’s *AGENDA* is about…so to speak.
“Cult of personality or personality cult is a derogatory term for what is perceived to be excessive adulation of a single living leader. The term was coined by Soviet leader Khrushchev soon after the death of Stalin, but the phenomenon as such is much older.”
Saddam is one of the few humans in human *HISTORY* who is known by just one name or word. Madonna is another one, although she is a singer…yes, in certain instances she gets confused with Jesus’ mother “The Virgin” Mary. Speaking of Jesus, “He” is another one. Hitler and Mao are known by most. How many reading this know that Saddam was a “student of Joseph Stalin”??? Not many, i suspect. BTW, that leads me back to Stalin (another human known by just one name), and to how Saddam learned about “the value of state terror.”
The Earth’s Left-Wing would like for all of us humans to think that Saddam was “contained” or was abused by Bush “41” and then by President Bush “43”, even after double-digit UN Resolution’s *VIOLATIONS*, huh. The Hitler Personality Cult probably caused more loss of human life (something like 60-million plus) than all other Personality Cults, but the Stalin Personality Cult probably ranks in the #2 spot. However, Saddam had/has moved the Personality Cults into a new ‘Arena’ by expanding such beyond a single countries borders, and into an ‘Arena’ that brought/brings other Nations to his side.
“So what are Saddam Hussein’s leadership secrets? First, he understands the value of state terror. As a student of Joseph Stalin, Saddam has constructed an elaborate and massive police state apparatus with as many as 100,000 agents and paramilitary troops which effectively atomize all possibility of political opposition through fear. Multiple specialized security forces exist to detect potential threats from the general population, the regular army officer corps, the Ba’ath Party elite, foreign spies and UN monitors (should they ever reappear), and the security forces themselves. Seven divisions of Republican Guards protect the state, and units of Special Republican Guards protect Saddam himself. In addition, tens of thousands of fanatically loyal Fedayeen Saddam, or “Saddam’s Martyrs,” recruited from the region around Saddam’s hometown of Tikrit, can be thrown into any struggle to protect the regime.”
Just before the American Presidential Election of 2004, a close Liberal Friend of mine was wondering why humble me was about to Vote for President Bush “43” in my first ever Vote *EVER* in a Presidential Election. i tried to explain, but he was never able to get beyond his own hatred. Saddam had not only cast a Veil of Deception over my Liberal Friend, that same Veil of Deception covered the entire Planet Earth. Saddam ruled Iraq with *TERROR*, and attempted to rule the Planet Earth with deceptions that hid such tactics. Saddam had raised his payout to Palestinian ‘suiciders’ from $10,000 to $25,000…that came after his invasions of Iran and Kuwait, after his ignoring UN Resolutions, and after he had blamed America for all of his wrong doings to others.
Ignoring the threats of Terrorism is what Saddam’s Veil of Deception was about, and why i claim that the Planet Earth’s Left-Wing is brainwashed!!! Heck, just look at America’s Mainstream Media’s daily death count, as they still support Saddam. This even after CBS News’ Lesley Stahl’s interview of Abdul Rahman Yasin, and Dan Rather’s recent collapse. One might ask who Abdul Rahmin/Rahman Yasin is…so to speak.
Abdul Rahman Yasin: “Wanted by the FBI in connection to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. “Abdul Rahman Yasin fled to Iraq after the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993”, and has been interviewed in Iraq by CBS News’ Lesley Stahl. “Shortly, after his birth, Yasin’s family moved back to Iraq.” “After being recruited by Ramzi Yousef, he got a burn scar while mixing the chemicals for a bomb.”
How about this one??? Abu Musab al Zarqawi: “Zarqawi’s activities were not confined to a small corner of northeast Iraq. He traveled to Baghdad in May of 2002 for medical treatment, staying in the capital of Iraq for two months while he recuperated to fight another day. During his stay, nearly two dozen extremists converged on Baghdad and established a base of operations there. These al-Qaida affiliates based in Baghdad coordinated the movement of people, money and supplies into and throughout Iraq for his network.” “He is believed to have fled to Iraq in 2001 after losing a leg in a US missile strike on his Afghan base (he now has an artificial leg).” “He has repeatedly picked up and moved across borders – from Jordan to Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq.”
What about Mamdouh Mahmud Salim or Ahmed Hikmat Shakir or Faruq Hijazi or the Clinton administration’s indictment of Osama bin Laden??? The latter went like this:
“Al Qaeda reached an understanding with the government of Iraq that al Qaeda would not work against that government and that on particular projects, specifically including weapons development, al Qaeda would work cooperatively with the Government of Iraq.”
Is it no wonder that the such as i see that our Mainstream Media seeks to bash our Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld in an attempt to humiliate President Bush “43”, whilst they support the Saddam Terrorists, and whilst they drool over words like this:
“First they said it was a mortar or rockets, then they said it was a suicide operation with local materials. Are they really this stupid that they still don’t know how they’ve been hit, or was it too painful to admit?”
Saddam was dragged out of a “spider-hole” by our Troops, and our Mainstream Media sought to *RIP* such apart by claiming that he was given to us. America’s Left-Wing is pathetic at best…so to speak of why President Bush “43” was re-Elected!!!
