Posted on 12/30/2012 6:00:39 AM PST by IbJensen
The year 2012 was a depressing time for people who are already pessimistic about the state of our common culture. Conversely, the re-election of Barack Obama, in large measure made possible by the heavy financial support of Hollywood, projects the optimism of the cultural Left. They anticipate increased blue-state voting patterns in favor of gay "marriage," legalized pot, gun regulations, and what next? Legalized prostitution? Euthanasia subsidized by Obamacare?
So let's just line up the cultural winners of Obama's America, where the only impediments to progress are those who believe in religion, manners and "family values."
Winner: Seth MacFarlane, the creator of the sick "Family Guy" cartoon and other Fox animated smutcoms on Sunday nights. He'll mock anything to shock the viewer, from portraying Jesus as a lying drunk, to joking Ronald Reagan was gay, even to making fun of domestic violence. Tinseltown loves this man. He guest-hosted "Saturday Night Live" in their season debut, was named host of the 2013 Academy Awards telecast and ABC's Barbara Walters named him one of the year's 10 "Most Fascinating People."
"Seth is the vision and the sensibility behind America's most popular and profitable cartoon series," Walters cooed. "Seth is a hands-on mastermind." She proclaimed, "The 'Family Guy' franchise is said to be worth nearly 2 billion dollars." She concluded by promoting his Oscar hosting gig: "In two months, hundreds of millions will be watching this writer, producer, actor, cartoonist, singer, multi-millionaire and all-around genius, and we'll all find out just how far Seth MacFarlane can go."
MacFarlane's filthy semi-animated movie, "Ted," grossed (literally grossed) $218 million at the box office. This was the movie described efficiently as "a boy's teddy bear comes to life and becomes a profane slacker who practically lives inside a bong and hires hookers in groups." The most unnecessary scene of the year was this teddy bear coming on to a sleazy fellow employee by not only doing pelvic thrusts, but also by spraying himself in the face with hand lotion a porny orgasm shot on a child's toy.
That's "sensibility," says the Obama culture.
Winner: MacFarlane's older sidekick, Bill Maher, the toxic atheist HBO star and the epitome of self-indulgent Hollywood liberalism, a man who shamelessly denounces the rest of America as a nation of idiots.
Maher wrote a million-dollar check to Obama's Super PAC Priorities U.S.A. The liberal media labored mightily to connect Mitt Romney to Donald Trump, but have said almost nothing to connect Maher to Obama.
Maher had another year of vicious commentary. Late in the campaign, he joked, "If you're thinking about voting for Mitt Romney, I would like to make this one plea: black people know who you are, and they will come after you." After Obama's victory, Maher joked about Karl Rove, "It was a little Hitler's bunker, wasn't it? I wanted to rush in with a cyanide capsule there."
He summed up the election this way: "It is your choice, America, because for me it is a win-win. If it's Obama, America wins, and if it's Romney, comedy wins." Maher has set the tone: Comedy is strictly deployed against the people who don't like Obama. If that feels like a Third World backwater to you, welcome to the Obama culture.
Winner: Roseanne Barr. She just won't go away. She was honored as comedic trailblazer for women with a Comedy Central roast. Katey Sagal, who played a foolish bimbo mom on "Married with Children," used the occasion to whack at Ann Romney: "Roseanne, I feel honored that you and I broke new ground as TV moms who didn't cook, didn't clean and didn't make any money. In the '90s, that made you a bad mom. But today it makes you Mitt Romney's wife."
Roseanne also exemplified the Obama culture's reaction to Chick-fil-A, in several Christian-bashing Twitter rants in July, including: "Anyone who eats St Fil-A deserves to get the cancer that is sure to come from eating antibiotic filled tortured chickens 4Christ". Then came the geopolitics: "Off to grab a sit fil-A sandwich on my way to worshiping Christ, supporting AIPAC and war in Iran."
Winner: Howard Stern. NBC parted with $20 million to bring in the old shock-jock as a sharp-tongued judge on their summer show "America's Got Talent." The ratings dropped, but in the Obama culture, that's not really the point. NBC just announced Stern signed a new contract for 2013 to repeat his "towering presence and opinions," because his "dedication comes across in a genuine way to our viewers who share his passion."
The slogan for Team Obama in 2012 was "Forward." There's nothing forward about the Obama culture, however. It is down, down, straight down, into the abyss.
Obama and his large circle of appointees are playing the pipe and the youth follow all the way to the sewer. It isn't a cliff we're headed for, rather it's a filthy cesspool.
My FRiend cripplecreek posted this for me....
The efficiency of the truly national leader consists primarily in preventing the division of the attention of a people, and always in concentrating it on a single enemy.
To the world the meaning of "success" is all about how much can be made. This is the degeneration of our society. The love of money is the root of all evil. Thanks but no thanks. I'll take the path least traveled by.
Yes, we all heard that giant flush on November 6th...
At Christmas, a bunch of my nephews were swapping favorite episodes, like the one where a character switches sides at an abortion protest to pick up chicks.
It’s hard to imagine a more depressing story line, yet they couldn’t stop laughing about it.
And indeed, God has been merciful in withholding His judgement. This has lead people to now openly mock: “Where is your God” and it’s varient, “There is no God. We can do whatever we want.”
As it was in the days of Noah...
Indeed the sewer backed up on November 6th.
-— There is no God. We can do whatever we want. -—
Human nature doesn’t change.
“As it was in the days of Noah.......”

“At Christmas, a bunch of my nephews were swapping favorite episodes, like the one where a character switches sides at an abortion protest to pick up chicks.

We also vote with our remotes. We block Family Guy. And our relatives cry censorship. We truly live in a nation of idiots
I think I understand where the sentiment of that statement comes from, but personally? I fail to see anything merciful about His judgement being withheld.
Instead, I see millions of souls being lead astray, millions being lead to believe that there are no consequences for bad behavior or worse, that you are rewarded for bad.
As it is now, it takes too long. There is too much lag time between cause and effect, between going around and coming around, between doing unto others and being done unto us.
It would be better to tighten that up a bit and shorten the lag time to something more like instant karma, like putting your hand on a hot stove, for example, so there is little to no doubt about what causes what.
He’s our ‘Little Fidel’, yaknow.. and he did it without guns and bullets..
Instead he had thugs with clubs and rigged voting machines and medea-like media talking heads.. all ‘legit’ of course per the FEC and DoJ..
oh well, we all know anything goes in politics, for the left anyway... ask Jim Ryan.
and if he can do for our healthcare what Dr. Fidel did for his people with FidelCare.. welllll then... The 22nd amendment definitely has to go and the Constitution too..
‘Gems’ like our little Barry don’t just fall from the sky .. no .. they’re slowly polished by a couple generations of immature little twirps,, in the Senate, the courts, DoJ and the EPA too,, all hail the emperor.. defy his edict and be ridiculed..
It didn’t take Roma long to fall, once the dominos start falling, the game is quickly over.. your move, O.
Slowly, slowly, slowly then all at once...
Was the 22nd amendment ever ratified as am amendment to the Constitution?
I've seen more "culture" in the bottom of the glass that holds the toothbrushes.
At the Dem convention, candidate Obama promised that he'd pursue "the kind of bold, persistent experimentation that Franklin Roosevelt pursued during the only crisis worse than this one."
This is indicative of the sinister Obamatons' intention to revisit the Depression---and rejigger what came to be known as FDR's New Deal.
SOUND FAMILIAR? In 1939, ten years after Wall Street crashed, FDR's Secy of the Treasury Morgenthau told the House Ways and Means Committee: We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work. And I have just one interest, and if I am wrong somebody else can have my job. I want to see this country prosperous. I want to see people get a job. I want to see people get enough to eat. We have never made good on our promises .....I say after eight years of this administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started .....And an enormous debt to boot!.
Obama is no historian but he knows a plan when he sees it.
As TADSLOS indightfully posted: The New Deal was an abysmal failure, then a global war broke out in large part by our enemies perception of our weakness. That conflict ultimately changed everything economically. We reduced our enemies to rubble, then turned our war building industry into the greatest giant global economic engine the world has ever known to help them re-build and compete against us. Enter the libs in power again in the 60s - 70s, 90s and now the leftist bomb throwers run the country. We haven't had a decisive military or economic victory to go with it since.
Obama wants to re-live the New Deal? Have at it. We can sort through the rubble and re-build.----we can and will survive anything he flings at us.
The thing that must keep us on high alert: the WH tyrant is obviously planning to have 3-4 terms-----as FDR did.....
......under the guise of continuing his (gag) "great work."
And maybe "pack" the Supreme Court as FRD did.
