When I first heard about Mr. Obama, upstart Senator from Illinois I liked the story. An American tale indeed, immigrant father meets American mother. Even the bloodline connection to Dick Cheney was a part of the improbable saga. Way before the presidential primary campaign I decided to subscribe to his podcast, but after listening something just wasn’t quite right. I couldn’t put my finger on it but I unsubscribed immediately.
Then his campaign, a perceived ‘movement of the people’ as it was portrayed by the corporate media. Ironic, as corporate money was flowing to the Obama camp in amounts that were undoubtedly carrying their efforts. There was talk in the press about Barack as an ‘anti-war candidate’ and people bought it, despite the lack of any real policy put forth from him that would suggest it to be so.
Then there was the victory speech on election night. African Americans everywhere felt a sense of liberation at the fact that even someone half black really could be elected president. My instincts told me that he was a genuine person and so despite all of the evidence I wanted to give him a chance.
I only needed a few weeks to see the real story. Banksters, corporate shills, GMO food industry reps and even the SAME Secretary of Defense from the ‘evil Bush administration’ swarmed the White House and I knew what was up immediately. Once again the people had been duped by the establishment media. I knew that no change would be coming, or at least the sort of change that average folks would benefit from.
Now this- a Nobel Peace Prize for a man who approves wiping out entire families with soulless robotic killing machines? There is no real president in Washington DC, just a fabricated image of a man with a touching story. Once again, Big Brother has instructed the TV addicted masses what to think and they have obeyed.
