Former President Barack Obama played a direct role in the hardships of the workers featured in American Factory, the Oscar-winning documentary his new production company produced.
But as Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH), the former mayor of nearby Dayton, Ohio, wrote last year, the movie leaves out President Obamas own role in making life worse for the GM workers who lost their jobs.
Obamas auto bailout, he recalled, helped force the plants closure and made it harder for the workers to find new jobs because his administration was dealing political favors to its favored union allies and they were in the wrong union.
Turner wrote in the Wall Street Journal last September, after the films release:
it never once alludes to the part Mr. Obama played in diminishing the ability of Moraines laid off workers to transfer to other GM plants. His administrations bailout deal for GM included a backroom exclusive agreement with the United Auto Workers.
The Obama administrations auto bailout highly favored the UAW and its members. The GM plant in Moraine was unionized by the IUE-CWA. Sodespite being one of the top GM facilities for quality, efficiency and production in the countryit was shuttered, and its employees were put at the back of the line when requesting transfers to other GM plants. Any non-UAW employees looking to transfer were forced to start as new hires, wiping clean any wages, tenure, and benefits built up during careers at other GM plants.
The hypocrisy of this Obama-backed film is astounding. Mr. Obama fails to acknowledge his direct role in creating the hardships the Moraine workers weathered. He had nothing whatsoever to do with the plants reopeningthat was all the work of state and local officials and community leaders.

The Ministry of Propaganda has an unblemished record of covering for the Kenyanesian Usurper.
Obama could be involved in the movie “Paint Drying” or “Grass Growing” and he’d win an Oscar.
I began using Netflix back in the late Nineties, and finally cancelled my membership.
I had been meaning to do that for a few years, but my wife still watched things on it, so I waited for her to get tired of it.
Their political advocacy is nauseating, and to get an idea you only have to make a foray into their documentary section.
The Kenian accepts NO responsibility for the hardships he and UAW cause loyal employees. PHFTT
The Fuyao employees rejected the Union 2 to 1
Junior has a production company????
Hollywood is SCUM! JMHO!
Does he tell GM, “You didn’t build that”?
Please let me know if you want on or off the Ohio Ping list.
