A Chilling Parallel

As you read this, try to guess who is being written about:

I was born in one country, raised in another. My father was born in another country. I was not his only child. He fathered several children with numerous women. I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in me. My mother died at an early age from cancer. Later in life, questions arose over my real name. My birth records were sketchy and no one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate.

I grew up practicing one faith but converted to Christianity, as it was widely accepted in my country, but I practiced non-traditional beliefs & didn't follow Christianity, except in the public eye under scrutiny. I worked and lived among lower-class people as a young adult, disguising myself as someone who really cared about them. That was before I decided it was time to get serious about my life and I embarked on a new career.

I wrote a book about my struggles growing up. It was clear to those who read my memoirs that I had difficulties accepting that my father abandoned me as a child. I became active in local politics in my 30's then with help behind the scenes, I literally burst onto the scene as a candidate for national office in my 40s. They said I had a golden tongue and could talk anyone into anything. That reinforced my conceit. I had a virtually non-existent resume, little work history, and no experience in leading a single organization.

Yet I was a powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to me as though I was a magnet and they were small roofing tacks. I drew incredibly large crowds during my public appearances. This bolstered my ego.

At first, my political campaign focused on my country's foreign policy and I was very critical of my country in the last war and seized every opportunity to bash my country. But what launched my rise to national prominence were my views on the country's economy. I pretended to have a really good plan on how we could do better and every poor person would be fed & housed for free.

I knew which group was responsible for getting us into this mess - i t was the free market, banks & corporations. I decided to start making citizens hate them and if they were envious of others who did well, the plan was clinched tight.

I called mine "A People's Campaign" and that sounded good to all people. I was the surprise candidate because I emerged from outside the traditional path of politics & was able to gain widespread popular support. I knew that, if I merely offered the people 'hope', together we could change our country and the world..

So, I started to make my speeches sound like they were on behalf of the downtrodden, poor, ignorant to include "persecuted minorities" like the Jews. My true views were not widely known & I needed to keep them unknown, until after I became my nation's leader.

I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody could have easily found out what I really believed, if they had simply read my writings and examined those people I associated with.

I'm glad they didn't. Then I became the most powerful man in the world. And the world learned the truth.

Who am I?

I have read this before.

I keep on wondering if our age will go down in history for being so ignorant and naive.

Is there any chance you could change your header? I'd really like to recommend your blog, as there is so much great stuff on it. I personally find it offensive and much too sensual for any male coming to it and I'd think most women would be turned off by it and just disgusted. None of the females in this family considers this to be art or beautiful and I wasn't about to ask the men.

I can't take the chance of being the cause for the males I wanted to recommend this to of being placed in the near occassion of sin or to commit a sin, no matter how great the content is.

With all the beautiful and modest pictures out there, I'm surprised to see you put something like this up. You've had good headers in the past and hope this one is changed as soon as possible.

Thank you for reading this and considering it. God bless you for your uplifting and helpful posts.

i really don't think Obama is going to exterminate a couple million jews.

Anon, you are really missing the point. Obama is not going to exterminate a few million Jews. When people read this, they immediaitely think Obama, when in fact, Hitler is the one being described. Don't you get it? Obama is as scary as Hitler; when you describe Hitler, you are desribing Obama.

This is so utterly ridiculous... you could write any description about any two people and make them seem alike when you are purposely creating something manipulative like this. Very small-minded.

Ok, Anon, we all get it - you are an Obama supporter. We`re not. Get over it.
