Obamunists Appropriate Salute From Star Trek Astro-Hippies


Above you see the new official salute of those who have been assimilated by the Obama Borg.

Rick Husong owns The Loyalty, a production company that believes in "an integrated approach to marketing, production, and design" and promises to "construct powerful messages." He's also a moonbat, and he barks:

Our goal is to see a crowd of 75,000 people at Obama's nomination speech holding their hands above their heads, fingers laced together in support of a new direction for this country, a renewed hope, and acceptance of responsibility for our future. […] We thought, "Let's try and start a movement where even while walking down the street, people would hold up the O and you would know that they were for Obama." You interlace your hands in a circle, the interlacing being a symbol of different types of people coming together and the circle a symbol of unity. We want to see it everywhere, but more importantly we want this sign to take the world by storm.

If the kooky, New-Agey gesture looks familiar, maybe you saw it being used by obnoxious astro-hippies on Star Trek:

There isn't much about Obamania that hasn't been recycled from the era of snot-nosed, dope-addled Flower Children.

Michelle Malkin has come up with some universal gestures and symbols that even better reflect the Obama campaign and its slack-jawed minions, including these:

That first picture is EXACTLY the one that most fits him and his followers. Uncanny.

Is it true that the Obama salute in ASL means "asshole?"

Borg-bama? Or, perhaps, Oborgma?

Is their a greeting that goes with the salute? I would suggest Heil Obama!

Maybe it means Obama is a zero!

When I first read the title of the post I expected something that went with the slogan "live long and prosper" to which I would reply "under Obama I don't expect to prosper, and would be surprised if my life expectancy wasn't actually reduced". As it is, I have a gesture for the Obamazombies, which in fact I've had a couple of occasions to use... there's none of that finger-lacing nonsense, in fact only one finger is necessary.

"Mr Evilwrench at August 8, 2008 11:51 AM"

I've seen letters in magazine "The Confederate Veteran" (1890-1930) that used "Live long and prosper" as a closing salutation.
Leonard Nemoy suggested the "Vulcan hand salute" because as a kid he peeked and say his Rabbi hold his hands that way while giving the blessing.

I assure everyone that Star Trek pretty much pegged the hippies and it's easy to see that Liberals are their decendants.

The "O" shape of the "Goatse" is a more fitting official salute for Obama. It even implies acceptance of all, regardless of how sick and nasty they are. By the way, if you are one of the five people on the internet who don't know what goatse is, don't look it up. Trust me, you really really don't want to know!

That Obama salute reminds me of Monica Lewinsky somehow. Perhaps she formed her hands that way when she was about to take in the President's friendship. It's irrational, I know, but, there it is.

Oh, thank you Mockingbird! Thank you so BLOODY much!

There are other similar cultists, who hold to most of Sen. Obama's views on America, White people, etc., who use similar hand signs to identify themselves and their allegiances...they're called "gangs".

Coincidental similarity?

From what I can recall of the episode, "The way to Eden", those hippies were on their way to a mythical planet, but instead found themselves in Romulan (read 'Soviet') territory. After hijacking the Enterprise, they find their dream planet, only to find corrosive dew on the plants and poisonous fruit. Being barefoot, they are badly burned, and their leader kills himself by eating one of the aforementioned poisonous fruit. The Starfleet crew is able to effect a rescue as their boots protect them from the hostile environment.
Ill equipped,ill advised and heedless of the consequences of their actions pretty much describes the left today.

It's a great big "zero" which respresents how much money we will have left if barack gets elected president.

Hmmmm -- reminds me of another gesture of submission and complete allegiance to the fuhrer, er, leader of the cult, no matter if he's a fool and utterly incompetent to be in a position of leadership: right arm extended, fingers straight, palm down. You can shout "Heil, Obama!," too, if you want, while performing the salute . . .
