OK… I confess I just got around to seeing 2016 Obama’s America.
I also have to confess I learned very little.
Actually, I learned two things;
1. Unger (Yet another Communist… I had no idea this guy existed.)
2. Something that I believe D’Souza understood, did not talk about. But now it has become so obvious to me I can’t believe I didn’t see it before….
“How can I be what you imagine if I show you who I am?”
This explains much, if not all, of the Obama phenomena. It also explains much of the press’ handling of him.
If you’re going to employ #3 and #4 of the worlds greatest platitudes, “Hope” and “Change”, then you can’t let them see the man behind the curtain. You must allow the masses to make you whoever they want you to be… then smile and wave while promising to be that which remains intentionally undefined.
I now believe it is a lesson Barack came to understand thoroughly while dealing with his feelings for his absent father. What Obama came to understand was that he created an incredibly favorable image of his father precisely because he knew nothing about him. All young Barack had to cling to regarding his father were the positive portrayals painted for him by his mother. This left more than a decade of holes to be filled by a man who deeply desired his father to be the Anti-Colonial Socialist Icon he imagined. What young man doesn’t want to idolize his father? Who can’t understand this?
Fast forward to a political career built on being purposefully vague.
Yes… I know he wrote books. But Obama, and those around him, knew no one would read them and if they did they would be allies who would not bring attention to any fact that was less than beneficial. Just like the “Blueprint for America”… he told us, in writing, what he planned to do all the while knowing it would never be read. But, he could always say truthfully “I told you!”. This is plausible deniability 101… however I think he secretly hoped that those who voted for him actually read his plans, and supported what he had in mind. Surprise.
Anyway, The United States now has a President who is tired and doesn’t want to do this anymore. Good.
The best scenario I can think of is for Barack Obama to quietly step off the stage and let the rest of us begin repairing the damage he and his Fellow Travelers have administered upon the United States.
A final note on 2016… if you don’t leave this documentary kind of sympathising with young Barack, but knowing this man should never, ever, ever have been allowed to ascend to the Presidency… to each their own. But at the very least you should be extremely angry at the press. All of them… as it is their job to do the work apparently only Naturalized Citizens will do.
