Seeing Through Obama

Obama and his crew may think they can fool us conservatives. These folks think we can’t spot a con or an outright conspiracy when we see it. Well, Mr. President, it turns out you’re wrong about that.

That value of education speech you were planning to broadcast to school kids. Sounds innocuous, doesn’t it? At least at first hearing. Well, if you have the kind of smarts we’ve got, there’s nothing innocuous here at all.

You think we don’t know that one of the few honest accomplishments of the old Soviet Union was that they provided near universal literacy to their people? Well, we do know it. And when we see someone like yourself talking about “the importance of education,” we see it for what it is — a code phrase for creeping Bolshivism. Gotcha!

And those other two speeches we’ve heard you’ve got planned. The ones on motherhood and apple pie. Maybe your pals on the left can’t see where this is going. We do.

Look carefully at the word “motherhood.” Note that its first part is “mother.” And in case you think our cultural awareness doesn’t include where this word opening leads with certain ethnic groups — groups that are your strongest backers — well, we do. No sir. This kind of mother… peddling will not pass under our radar.

And apple pie. Pies made of apples. You think we don’t know that this country’s biggest apple growers are in the Northeast and Northwest, both Democratic strongholds. A real American pie, if you were in fact really interested in supporting one, is filled with pecans. Or is that too American and flag waving and red state for your tastes?

We’re out here, Mr. President. And we’re watching you real close. Don’t try to get anything important past us. Because as your “importance of education” ruse makes clear, we’ll go to the mat on anything and everything. You betcha!

    This would be funny….except that’s exactly how a large percentage of the right wing really and truly thinks these days. Srsly. God help us all.

      Satire at its finest!

      But if you actually think that conservatives think that way. Get real.

      Yes, some of the fringe on both sides do not use rational thought and spin generalities and conspiracy.

      However, ALL of us should learn something from this type of thinking.

      Do NOT trust what you are told by the government or the media.

      Get your info YOURSELF, and when offered data or information, VERIFY IT!

      Do not take a word President Obama or Congressmen tell you.
      Look into everything and form your own opinion.

      If you want to be liberal after that, fine.
      If you want to be conservative after that, fine.

      But don’t spew anything until you’ve put rational thought and research into it.

      That’s the lesson I take from wallstreetpoet’s satire.

  • RememebrNovember

    I see what you did there.

    Beautiful!!Another example of the power of satire—and of the power of clear thinking, forthright Americans.Can’t wait for the (predictable) comments of DLS et al Thanks, MichaelDorian

    >Can’t wait for the (predictable) comments of DLS et al

    Yeah, but to his credit DLS does not fit into the stereotype portrayed in the satirical message above. While I generally disagree with just about everything he has to say, he does present reasoned and thought-out commentary – the type of conservative message that I would hope other conservatives would employ on this (and other) message boards.

  • TheMagicalSkyFather

    Actually if he would just drop the lefty/liberal/commie/socialist/fascist thing that make it sound like I am reading Glenn Beck then I would actually read a good deal more of his comments but those I tend to only read once they have annoyed me. I am not sure that DLS wants me to read him more though we tend to bicker but I usually enjoy it.

  • elrod

    What I love about DLS is his propensity to post a thought and then post another thought shortly afterward. I used to think it was the Disqus screwing up the order of responses – as if he was in a running dialogue with another commenter. But it’s more like a running dialogue with his last comment.

    This would be funny….except that’s exactly how a large percentage of the right wing really and truly thinks these days.

    What’s really scary is how a large percentage of allegedly sane conservatives attempt to defend it.

  • JSpencer

    Well done Michael! Good stuff. As for DLS, I’m sure he is enjoying the attention here. I’d add my own comment about his “unique” style, but since I owe him one I’m forced to decline. . . this time.

  • redbus

    Silverstein’s satire is a hoot! We need more humor, that’s for sure. Long live Stephen Colbert.

  • kritt11

    So following the columnist’s logic, Obama should make sure NOT to provide a solid education for future Americans! If he promotes universal ignorance, he will prove that we are not like the Communists!

    Where do they get these arguments???

    Should we stop enjoying ballet because that’s what the Reds did?
