"Born Again America" ~ Obama Propaganda From Norman Lear



Team Sarah

Not only have they hi-jacked the term "Born Again", as if Americans needed to experience a resurrection... but it is an attempt to promote the very liberal left and a new way of looking at the founding documents.

Norman Lear is taking to the inauguration of Barak Obama. It's time, he says, for a new birth of patriotism as an act of personal commitment and not just sentiment. He commissioned Keith Carradine to write a song — "Born Again American" — that will be performed by singers and musicians from around the country. On its newly launched Web site you can hear the entire song and sign the pledge to revitalize and recommit to the principles behind the Declaration.

I urge you to let your friends know that this IS NOT about Christian Americans.

Born Again America website

Look at the lyrics, 'my country tis of me'.

Our founding fathers knew it was providence and God's blessings that gave us this opportunity.

Norman Lear, and B.Hussein Obama want to lull you into the collective mind of service first...foregoing the self-reliant spirits of all. Self-reliant will become selfish and born again means a renewal in that collective sacrifice for the poor. The chasms they are creating and the divisiveness of their movement is shrouded in misleading words and feel good music.



Just a workin’ man without a job
It got shipped off to China via Washington, D.C.
And I know I’m nothin’ special, there are plenty more like me
Just the same
I thought I knew the rules of the game
I stood up for this country that I love
I came back from the desert to a wife and kids to feed
I’m not sayin’ Uncle Sam should give me what I need
My offer stands
I’ll pull my weight you give me half a chance

I went up to a congressman and said to him “you know
Our government is letting people down”
He said he’d need a lot of help to buck the status-quo
I said there was a bunch of us around

I’m a Born Again American, conceived in Liberty
My Bible and the Bill of Rights, my creed’s equality
I’m a Born Again American, my country ‘tis of me
And everyone who shares the dream from sea to shining sea

My brother’s welding chassis at the plant
He’s earning what our granddad did in 1948
While CEOs count bonuses behind the castle gates
How can they see
When all they care about’s the do re mi

It’s getting where there’s nowhere left to turn
Not since the crash of twenty-nine have things been so unfair
So many of our citizens are living in despair
The time has come
To reaffirm that hope’s not just for some

The promise of America’s surrendering to greed
The rule is just look out for number one
But brace yourself ‘cause some of us have sown a different seed
A harvest of the spirit has begun

I’m a Born Again American conceived in liberty
My Bible and The Bill Of Rights
My creed’s equality
A Born Again American, my country ‘tis of me
And everyone who shares the dream from sea to shining sea

It’s clear my country’s soul is on the line
She’s hungering for something that she lost along the way
The principle the framers called upon us to obey
That in this land
The people’s will must have the upper hand

I felt the calling once before and took a sacred vow
And faithful to that vow I have remained
I hear the calling once again, my country needs me now
And to her cause I have been re-ordained

I’m a Born Again American conceived in liberty
My Bible and the Bill Of Rights, all people living free
A Born Again American, my country ‘tis of me
And everyone who shares the dream
From sea to shining sea
And everyone who shares the dream
From sea to shining sea

Wild Thing's comment.......

The first thing I noticed while listening to the song was a photo of the Obama supporters on the opening page. The campaign sign "Change" right out in front.

At the top I clicked on About Us, it shows Norman Lear and it says he is behind the video and the song. Norman Lear is a far leftist, he is part of the group of what they call Progressives ( communists). He is one of the big supporters of Obama, and also Al Franken and anything that is far left.
Also Lear, co-founder of People For the American Way and the People for the American way logo is also on the page to click on called Take the Next Step. Also on that same page is a repeat of the photo of Obama supporters with their " Change" sign.

Lear, a Democrat who founded People for the American Way in 1981 to combat the religious right.

Also the opening page as the video begins is Keith Carradine ( son of actor John Carradine) another far leftie.

The website promotes the volunteerism that Obama is promoting.

Obama's propagandists are out to make it Un-American not to go along with his Socialist policies. They are even selling clothing with the appropriate logos for you to wear.

This is just loaded with the The "us" against "them" dividing of America and Americans.

We have seen this happening in full force with the Obama vs. Limbaugh .....the "Stop listening to Talk Radio and listen to "the Leader" this last week.

If anyone tells you this is an awesome song. Please tell them to listen to the actual words and then show them around the actual website and the Obama "Change" sign being held at one of his campaign tours.

.... Thank you John for sending this to me.

This is disgusting! Born Again means into the house of the Lord, not as an American. I have always been an American. I don't need to be "born again" for that. I am a Patriot and I don't need some commie-pinko-socialistic dictator telling me how to behave or believe. I'd sooner stick a red hot stove poker somewhere it doesn't belong than blindly follow the crowd. Anyone on that side ever listen to "The Amber Waves of Grain" by Merle Haggard or "The Eagle" by Waylon Jennings or "Something Worth Fighting For" by Kris Kristofferson? Maybe they should. Obamanation is taking away the Amber Waves of Grain, the Eagle is no longer our beloved symbol and people stupidly believe they have nothing they need to fight for anymore.
I'm an American--yes, only one, but I have a hot Irish temper, so they better not cross me even once. They'll liable to get an earful and probably my size 8 boot up their butts!

If anyone tells me this is an "awesome" song the'll never talk to me ever again i can asure you. The war is on...

BORN AGAIN in reference to secular atheists and
pro-51 million abortionists and same sex marriage advocates? GOD has a LONG memory...WE THE PEOPLE ARE what our national motto decrees: "One Nation Under God." The flower power radicals are now in power - blooming idiots!
Go to and
It's that easy Team Theodore!

Escape/escapism: an inclination to retreat from unpleasant realities through diversion or fantasy;

This is the liberal mantra, the dream of a non-existant utopia where everyone is equal and nobody is better than anyone else everybody works for the common good of society. Lofty goals for the few who lead the sheep to the slaughter. Amazing how all these people have bought into this nonsense and The individual is NON exsitant.

It is like that black woman who said, 'Her worries were over, Obama was going to take care of her, pay her mortgage, put gas in her car...'

They take advantage of words like: Liberty, Bill or Rights all words that mean someting to all Americans as if these are carved in stone. With this bunch they are the words they hate. They want to throw these words out with the constitution. But the 64 Million obamabots they hear them and 'oh yes' that is the change we've been looking for, not realizing that in the end, this is what will be missing from their lives is Liberty and the pursuit of happiness as YOU see not as the government sees it.

Obama weaves his web of lies and deceit and these lapdogs are taking it all in. Blaming the CEOs and big companies for their plight. When these companies start shutting down because of overly restrictive government policies, where do they think the jobs are going to come from.

How the HELL is this PATRIOTIC? They can't be proud of the American Flag without the "messiah's" face on it, they need to move to france.

Lynn, the messiah wants "change" from the Mighty Bald Eagle to the Pigeon IMHO. Notice the Bald Eagle is a Warrior, a Hunter they get rid of vermin. All pigeons ever do is eat crumbs off of the ground sh!t all over the place. (Do y'all see the parallel?) I have a pair of steel toed boots that you can borrow.

I think I'm going too see "Taken" tonight, from what I hear it's pretty good.

P.S. Cuchieddie and Mark, I do apologize if I was in any way disrespectful yesterday.

John no offense taken.

Thank you Chrissie and John U.S. Navy

Sounds just like the Communist marching songs, next it will be bugles in the night and bull horn messages. Isn't that what the Communists, the Imams and the Muttawah do?

Chrissie, I have a book of foreign songs published in 1979 in Communist China, it's written in Chinese with English translations, nowhere is God mentioned in any of the songs, some are traditional American folk songs written by Americans during the American Revolution, the Civil war through WWII, etc, all are anarchist in nature and slanted toward revolution. This song belongs in their collection. It is nothing more than what you called it. Propaganda. Jingoistic propaganda at that.

John PFC I didn't join in on yesterday's discussion. Even though you are relatively new to the military profession it doesn't diminish your stature, your patriotism or your dedication to the nation. You are holding down two tough jobs as a citizen soldier. The citizen side too often doesn't have a clue about your dedication or your sacrifices to serve in peacetime. It pains them that they have to relinquish total control for the mandatory duty calls, they too should be serving and if they are willing to support your commitment then they truly are serving. Ignored by most Americans is the civilian personal business leaves forfeited for training, all those weekends spent in training, the civilian vacations spent training, the constant chance of being uprooted from family and sent to battle, it's IMO tougher on the family and the soul having one foot in each world than pulling full time active duty where you are assured of stability and 30 days leave. I too want to sincerely thank you for your service. Your's is a tough job. Thank you John !!!

Jack, Thank You. And Again Thank You All For Your Continuous And Selfless Support Of The Troops.

This Norman Lear "Born Again American" propaganda is nothing other than selective and false patriotism. It is no different than Michelle Obama's selective and false patriotism when she said, "for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country."

Patriotism is like pregnancy, you either are or you aren't pregnant. Patriotism has nothing to do with who is president at any particular time. It is unconditional love and belief in the country, Constitution, and flag. Just imagine if the military chose to be patriots or not depending on who was President and CIC at the time.

As far as "Obama's propagandists are out to make it Un-American not to go along with his Socialist policies" goes, I remind them (particularly Obama in his declared war with Rush Limbaugh) of what one of their own said and they all cheered in support of.

Yo Chrissie, have you seen the news from Friday evening? Teh One is demanding that the DoD take a 12% budget cut. The Pentagon apparently has until Monday to respond. I think this is deserving of a separate post.

I think that sums up the attitude of obama and his sheep towards America.

I love this article here:

PS: Hello to the REAR Admirals in the 'PC Cock Tails R Us' Pentagon. The numerous GENERALS and all of the Indian Chiefs that sip coffee, attend Redskins and Capitals games, and tie one hand behind our warriors backs like they did in Vietnam! Love their crack Military Urinals at GITMO too. - Pent A Gonners & Paper Tigers one and all!

Lynn, giggle I love that you are Irish. Ditto to all you said.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 31, 2009 05:55 PM

John PFC, maybe a vulture instead of a pigeon. I don't want to be born again as a country or an American citizen.
Thanks to all you guys.

James M., it sure is done in a very sly way. If a person does not listen to the words and then too if they don't check out the site they will fall for it.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 31, 2009 05:59 PM

Darth, yessss we ARE One Nation Under God and I pray very hard that never stops.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 31, 2009 06:01 PM

Mark, thanks for the definition of Escape/escapism.
That is the ting too, they sure do take advantage of the words you mentioned. Like the people pro terrorists and their protests they did in NY, they were allowed to bash America on our sidewalks because of Freedom of Speech and they used our freedom like that against our country.

Dems sure are a lot like those pro terroriosts groups.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 31, 2009 06:07 PM

JohnE PFC U.S. Army, I want to see that movie for sure..."Taken". It really looks good.

DITTO and Amen JohnE........

You're absolutely NON-PC right on target Darth! We have more general officers in the Pentagon now than we did during WW II. Imagine that? At least General's William Tecumseh Sherman and George S. Patton led their troops ... up front and by example. A 12% DOD pay cut by Monday? But, but the DC CCCP Super Bowl parties won't be over by then.

Jack, thank you for telling about that book. That is very interesting.

Les, great video I saved it to my favorites at YouTube, thank you.

Your so right too about this......

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 31, 2009 06:28 PM

Cousin Dave, Mark has been kind and sent me a link for what you are mentioning and I plan on posting it tomorrow.

Posted by: Wild Thing at January 31, 2009 06:30 PM

JohnE PFC U.S. Army, good quote. LOL and true too that is just what they will do.

Thanks for the link....I like this too and at the end it says...

"If you want me to unite to your cause, then end abortion, give the people back the money they earned, fight terror, keep your hands off free speech on the radio and enable job creators to make more jobs. Until then, screw your hope and screw your change."
