WND: Obama Confesses to Being a Dictator

The Worldnutdaily is back with its “forensic profiler” who thinks he can read minds by reading between the lines of what they say, who now says that when Obama said he was the president and not a dictator, he really meant that he is a dictator. Seriously.

“Obama replied to (rare) press challenges about his contribution to the problem, ‘Give me an example of what I might do.’ Then he proceeded to unconsciously answer his own question with further denials, declaring, ‘I am not a dictator. I’m the president,’” Andrew G. Hodges, M.D., told WND in an assessment.

“Understand his powerful ‘dictator’ image spontaneously comes from his mind. Immediately following it with ‘president’ he unconsciously confesses, ‘I am the dictator president,’” Hodges said.

“For good measure he adds further unconscious proof in yet another vivid denial. I ‘can’t force Republicans to do the right thing’ – confessing again that in dictatorial fashion he was forcing the Republicans’ hands by not negotiating and failing to do the right thing.”

You know, of all the idiotic bullshit the Worldnutdaily has promoted in the last decade, this may be the single dumbest of them all. And that’s saying a lot.

He uses a unique psycholinguistic technique he calls “ThoughtPrint Decoding” to “read between the lines” of people’s statements – called “the cutting-edge of forensic science” by expert investigators.

Nonsense. He’s using a very old technique called “making shit up and selling it to morons.”

    I don’t think it is quite that consciously willful. I’m more inclined to say that he is hearing what he wants to hear, and his mental illness is filling in the rest.

  2. oranje says

    The stuff he must get from popular music would be very entertaining.

    I can also twist everything to the opposite of what someone actually says. Because it’s their subconscious talking, you know. And I’m a subconscience-whisperer.

  3. says

    called “the cutting-edge of forensic science” by expert investigators

    I don’t suppose he’s willing to name these “expert investigators” or are they like all the PhDs Barton couldn’t name who validated his book?

  4. says

    The polygraph, which has been around for decades and popularly accepted by the public, still doesn’t work. So what makes this alleged cutting edge stuff of even more outlandish claims more trustworthy?

    “Expert investigators” like the ones who testify in court? I thought police officers were already trained in how to make shit up you didn’t actually say.

  6. Phillip IV says

    who now says that when Obama said he was the president and not a dictator, he really meant that he is a dictator.

    Well, I can kinda imagine where he got that idea. At WND he’s completely surrounded by people who say they aren’t bigots, but….

    One of the commenters on WND manages to outdo even this “forensic profiler”- she doesn’t even have to listen to what Obama says, all she has to do is look at him:

    WARNING: We have a huge problem Houston, Obama is the dictator he denies to be! Hello! We are smarter than that! Anyone who listens and watches his tone, his demeanor, his expressions,all you have to do is to look in his eyes,! The mirror of his soul, to me, it screams of hate and power! It’s the look one has before he strikes. I’ve seen that the first time I saw him. I can’t be the only one in this Great Nation to have seen that ‘evil type’ expression!

    She got 632 “likes” for that little piece of deep thought.
    And then the conversation gets even weirder (yes, it’s possible). One commenter wonders why, if Obama is not Satan, Satan is wearing a hoodie (in the History Channel’s series The Bible). It has something to do with Trayvon Martin, and…no. I won’t spoil it; see for yourself, if you can stand the fun.

    He literally just takes the words in the sentence Obama uttered, and then rearranges them to say… whatever he damn well wants them too. The guy is quite clearly making shit up. “When he said “I am not a dictator. I am the president.”, what he really said was “I am the dictator President.” What utter shite. It’s amazing wat people will believe when they want to.

    a very old technique called “making shit up and selling it to morons.”

    Isn’t that what religions do?

    …Immediately following it with ‘president’ he unconsciously confesses, ‘I am the dictator president,’” Hodges said

    I have a feeling that is a typo, and it was actually Hodgman that is speaking there, as it would make much more sense.

  11. thebookofdave says

    Dr. Hodges is a New Age pioneer. We used to sell self-actualization products in a warm fluffy package, exclusively to left liberal spiritualists. But market saturation is finally diminishing its returns. So now it must be repackaged for sale to an untapped sector of cold prickly spiritualists, who buy affirmation of their ideals of punishment to outsiders. ThoughtPrint Decoding™ is to forensic criminology what Reiki is to medicine.

  12. blf says

    What would this nutter “decode” if you gave him some comments from, say, Rove or Barton or Bachmann or Orly or Palin or just about anyone in the cast of “regulars”, told him Obama said it, and ever-so-innocently asked what it really meant?
