The state of Illinois is honoring former President Barack Obama by establishing an annual state holiday in his name, which clearly represents the most concerning case of a cult of personality that America has experienced in this century.
As reported by WMAQ-TV, Illinois Republican governorsigned a bill into law on Friday to establish August 4 as the Prairie State’s “Barack Obama Day.” The most sickening detail about this announcement is that this is the same day as Obama’s birthday.
According to WMAQ, the Senate Bill 55 reads that the holiday will be observed throughout Illinois as a day set apart to honor Obama, who began his career “serving the people” of the state in both the Illinois Senate and the United States Senate. Additionally, it says that the former President dedicated his life to building bridges across communities and protecting the rights of Americans.
Apparently, no Illinois state legislators voted against this bill. This holiday will be commemorative only and will not force state organizations or schools to close. Nevertheless, members of the Democratic Party did try to make the holiday a legal one, which would have forced the schools and state organizations to close.
Analysts reported that the idea behind a legal state holiday failed strongly after some state lawmakers raised concerns that other Illinois presidents with its own state holidays have a commemorative holiday only. Additionally, there were several concerns over the economic impact closing the Illinois every August 4 would have.
As reported by WMAQ, Rauner said about the proposition back in February that it was incredibly proud for the state that the president came from it. He also said that the idea of the holiday was awesome and assured they should celebrate it. Rauner added that it should be a day of acknowledgment and celebration instead of a formal holiday paid, forced time off.
The former president celebrated his 56th birthday last Friday. It was his first one since leaving the White House back in January. This new holiday will be celebrated annually beginning next year
Far from being the first time, Obama has always been characterized for relying on the cult of personality in order to divert attention from its failures and offer an appealing and emotional figure.
During the 2012 presidential election against Republican candidate Mitt Romney, Obama’s campaign built one of the sickening cults of personality ever seen in America just to maintain its popularity, despite the fact its historic failures ridding foreign and domestic policy were public.
At one point, they published a poster that stated there were no blue states or red state, only “the United States.” Believe it or not, this poster wasn’t of the flag, it was actually of a United States dominated by the Obama symbol.
Although former President Ronald Reagan also had his commemorative holiday, he never hijacked the American flag just for his own iconography. As a matter of fact, not even Bill Clinton or George W. Bush used this visual methodology of fascism and communism to forward their campaign as Obama did.
Believe it or not, Obama’s cult of personality went to the point where even the very symbol of the DNC was suppressed. There was a poster that stated “The American people” united in red, underneath a Big Blue O. No pictures of past presidents or the Democratic donkey. Nothing but the O.
The can put together “Barack Obama Day” in Illinois…… but they won’t lift a finger to stop black on black murders….. smh…

Naturally, Obama has been doing this since 2007, when most of his followers, including the Rolling Stone magazine, tried to portray him as a Jesus-like figure that was going to rescue America from what it was considered as an inevitable perdition.
Although everyone thought he wouldn’t continue with this Messianic narrative under his administration, Obama and the Democratic Party actually did it, to the point where their motto far from being about America, it was actually about America under Obama.
That was probably the reason why at one point, he decided to dismiss an important meeting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in order to appear on the David Letterman show. Obama was the Dear Leader, the quintessence of a figure enforced by a sick cult of personality, just like, Fidel Castrol, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, or Hugo Chavez.
Forget about economy or social issues, the Democratic Party has always been characterized for endorsing leftist and demagogic regimes, being the reason why Obama´s popularity among the Democrats was always quite high.
