That Anti-Obama Movie
by Al Benson Jr. My son sent me an email this afternoon which noted that Dinesh D'souza's new movie "Obama 2016" had made it to the top movie of this weekend grossing $6.3 million in sales. That's pretty good for a documentary movie, and one that's only 29 minutes long. It was in about 1,000 theaters for the weekend, while most of the regular commercial movies were in around 3,000 theaters, so for it to end up being the top seller while being in less theaters has to say something. It may mean that, at last, some folks are waking up to the fact that Mr. Obama is a Marxist and that he has loaded his administration with leftists who vary in shade from deep pink to bright Red. You will get very little of this from the lap dog media who seem to be so addicted to Obama and his Marxist agenda that they will not publish or broadcast anything that makes him look bad. Hence his Marxism will never be exposed by those people, making them complicit in his Marxist agenda--not that such bothers them. To say that our "news" media leans to the left would be putting it mildly. Some writers on the Internet feel that Obama's campaign is running out of steam and that he has nothing new to offer (what he's already offered is more than we need) and so he has resorted to attacking his opponent rather than dealing with issues. This is a standard Marxist diversionary tactic. Erick Erickson, writing on http://www.redstate.com on August 24th noted that: "From Mark Halperin to Jake Tapper, to Chuck Todd, more journalists are actually now admitting just how pliable the media ix when it comes to Barack Obama's spin. All week long, as the economy deteriorates, most every anchor at most every news outlet, most every editorialist in most every paper, and most every 'centrist' and liberal pundit has been pointing out the GOP's extremist abortion position." This is a classic example of what I am talking about. Obama has the economy in shreds and he wants four more years to complete the job and all the media can do is to rant about what they claim or "extremist" Republican positions on other things. Do the folks that make up the "news" (what a laugh) media know that Obama's Marxist politics have ruined the country's economy? Of course they do. Will they reveal that to the American public? Don't hold your breath waiting! Whatever news that reflects badly on Comrade Obama will either be spun to make him look good or tossed down the memory hole. I don't see how these guys have the gall to still call themselves the "news" media. I saw what the "news" media did to Ron Paul here in Louisiana--and if it wasn't a crime it should have been. So I have no faith whatever in the regular "news" media. Those that are not outright liberals and socialist, with a few exceptions, are trying to be. And for all of that, they are still not fooling a goodly segment of the public, otherwise this new anti-Obama movie would not have grossed over $6 million this weekend.
