Skip to comments.Culture Challenge of the Week: Obama’s America
Posted on 09/19/2012 10:01:58 AM PDT by Kaslin
As anti-American riots and murderous attacks continue to erupt across the Middle East, Americas response will be dictated by a man that few Americans really knowBarack Obama.
Its time to change that.
A new movie, 2016: Obamas America , is doing just that, breaking box-office records in the process. Who would have thought a documentary, in the midst of a tight economy, would draw record crowds to Americas theatres?
But a documentary is a story, and this one has a compelling message, and it's been my honor to help promote it. Americans are flocking to the theatres to learn the truth about Barack Obamathe manand at the influences that have shaped him and the worldview that now threatens our childrens futures. Rising to number three in box office receipts last week, also has leapt past all but one of liberal film-maker Michael Moores heavily-promoted liberal documentaries and now holds the number two slot on the all-time list of political documentaries.
Whats the films message? That Barack Obamas ideology, his mindset, his dreams, and his perspective on America inevitably reflect the rabid anti-colonialism of his Kenyan father and radical mother. As a result, from his student years on into adulthood, Barack Obama has purposefully sought the counsel and mentorship of five men known for their Marxist perspectives, anti-American rants, and, in the case of Bill Ayers, their terrorist activities here in America.
These are the forces that have made Barack Obama into the man he is today.
Portrayed by the press back in 2008 as a thoughtful scholar and coalition-builder, the Barack Obama of 2012 stands on stage as a brazen, big-government liberal with a socialist bent, whose rallying cry now depends on class envy and government dependency. Worse, as 2016: Obamas America shows, he welcomes Americas loss of power and prestige on the world stage. Similarly, he has overseen a precipitous drop in Americas military might, spinning it as a path to reduced international tensions.
What happened to the President who, in 2008, was going to usher in a new era of peace the world over, of friendly relations with rising Islamic theocracies, and non-partisan politics at home?
Those promiseslittle more than puffery and hot airhave literally gone up in smoke. American flags burn outside of embassies. The median U.S. income continues to walk backwards, dropping well below the median income of ten years ago. And the non-partisan President has not succeeded in getting a budget passed, instead muscling his way towards ideological solutions through the power of executive orders.
How to Save Your Family: Secure Your Childs Future
Take your children, particularly your middle and high school-age children, to see 2016: Obamas America. They will not get this information in the classroom, thanks to the political heft of liberal teachers unions that contribute heavily to Barack Obama. (Even conservative teachers may soft-pedal negative facts about our sitting President to avoid liberal attacks that paint critics of the first black President as secret racists.)
A recent showing in Virginiaa battleground stateprompted typical reactions among theatregoers. One group of retirees left the theatre, shaking their heads, worrying that Obama would bequeath a socialist America to their grandkids. Their response? Theyll voteand not for Obama, either.
A group of teens nearby, not yet old enough to vote, saw the movie as a call-to-action. The eldest, Jack, observed that Obamas mindset and the way he thinks, combined with his administrations troubling drawdown of American military capabilities, make the prospect of Obamas re-election scary. Michael, Jacks brother, commented that Obamas history is a bad history that most people dont know, but should. JP, his friend, agreed, saying, People need to know that his mentors and friends were Communists and even a terrorist. Thats part of the problem, Jack observed, The media chooses to keep that quiet, so voters may end up being manipulated into re-electing Obama. Their response? The boys resolved to spread the word.
And so should we. Educate yourself. Encourage others to do the same. Go the the theatre this weekend, without fail, so there is time for you to learn the truth and spread the word. Without access to facts about the real Obamathe one that nobody knew in 2008America may make a mistake from which we may never recover.
Our children deserve better.
In 1776, according to Jefferson and Adams, the "American mind," as expressed in the Declaration of Independence, was passionate about liberty, and declaring to the world a "reliance on Divine Providence" as the Source of that liberty, recognizing that life and liberty were "Creator-endowed," under "laws of Nature and of Nature's God," and accountable to a "Supreme Judge of the World."
That set of beliefs resulted in a Constitution for self-government which would strictly limit and chain down any potential future leaders who might wish to exercise coercive power undelegated by that Constitution, believing themselves to be self-appointed "change" facilitators of a formerly free America.
If 2016 can cause enough Americans to read their founding documents, understand their Creator-endowed rights, and become vigilant and aware of threats to those rights, then perhaps the same Divine Providence is revealing what one President called a hand "in the affairs of men."
