Why People Can’t Face the Truth about Obama

The psychological processes which prevent people from facing facts when the unthinkable has become obvious can be explained by the models of social psychology called cognitive dissonance theory.

    Basically what it boils down to is that people are unable to come to terms with voting for this idiot twice, so they have to justify their stupidity by ignoring their mistakes.

      I guess this could explain Ontario continually voting Liberal. Or the Islam is a religion of peace meme. But if there’s something to this idea … if people really are that stupid, and inclined to work against their own best interests, what hope is there for our societies?

      short while from now no one will admit to voting for Louis XIV in Ottawa

      • Okay, the Jim Jones comparison is good — especially since Jonestown was failed Marxist experiment. But David Koresh? He may have been a nutball but it wasn’t a suicide cult — they didn’t deliberately burn to death. It was a terrible foul-up by over-zealous law enforcement who used tanks to break open a wooden structure that easily caught fire as it collapsed.

          Ya think? You mean old Davey did not have apocalyptic fantasies?

        Mauser, this essay is so good that if I were inclined to plagiarism, there is only one name that I would have to replace.

  • The most irritating thing I find about Obama’s “dissonance” is his constant reference to “what ISIS wants”. How about telling us what ISIS doesn’t want, so we can defeat them? They definitely don’t want us to fight them — they would prefer unconditional surrender.

    How does Obama know what ISIS wants? Do they send him a daily update of their wants? Documentation please. For example: “ISIS wants us to keep Guantanamo open for their recruitment [propaganda] purposes”. Really, Mr. Obama? First of all, ISIS isn’t imprisoned in Guantanamo — Al Queda is. And the last time I checked ISIS and Al Queda are often at war with each other! So I guess ISIS wants us to keep Guantanamo open to punish their enemies in Al Queda? Obama’s thinking is so convoluted it’s hard to make heads or tails of it. Cognitive dissonance — bang on.

    Obama was and is just a scowling half white, almost half arab,”fake black Afro American” marxist marionette fronting for the usual suspects.
    A better question is why the GOP/RINOs find this situation so acceptable and their top rent seekers do too.

    The only redeeming thing, those of us on the right get to say the proverbial “We told you so”….. God help the Americans if the vote for Hillary.

    “Progressives” hold Black people to lower moral and professional standards and because he is (vaguely) Black they give him a free pass on everything.

    If that isn’t genuine racism then I don’t know what is.

      It’s now applied to muslims because I have yet to see just one of them charge with a hate-crime even when one fire bombs a jewish school , jewish centre or spews death threats in public to murder every jew on earth or in Canada.
      We even have muslims that hold rallies in public to crusade for the barbaric sharia law as practised in iran that will sanction murdering gays plus allow the child-bride pedophilia for muslim men to emulate their so called prophet of peace .
      There is a fear and soft bigotry to lower the moral bar for blacks and muslims as if they aren’t fully human yet , but when it comes to muslims we have real time examples every week for the followers of islam to be predisposed to violence and terrorism slaughters even when the muslim is peaceful and such a nice person at the mosques.

      The denial must be some kind of serious mental damage that is a form of a Battered taxpayer Syndrome where they cling on to the hope that the abusers will change and the next Election will bring the Leader that is kind and tell the truth.

    Why people are so fed up with most of the party candidates from both parties

    Allahu Akbarrack Hussein Mobama. A better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better policy director than his policy directors, and a better muslim than his prophet mohammed.
