Lets set the old way back machine for 2009. President Obama was all set to deliver what may well be one of the most boring and uncontroversial speeches in history, namely the back-to-school-study-hard-kids pep talk for the beginning of the school year. Conservatives, with their typical projection, decided that the evil commie marxist atheist muslim in office was going to convert all their impressionable young little mouth breathers instantly into liberal scum. Back, through the mists of time…
CNN quotes one
dumb fuck suburban Colorado mother Shanneen Barron: “Thinking about my kids in school having to listen to that just really upsets me, I’m an American, They are Americans, and I don’t feel that is OK.”
You can see her point. As an American and parent of Americans the idea that the president of America might tell her kids to stay in school and study hard should really scare you. America is all about not getting an education and remaining painfully stupid.
Obama insisted on going through with the speech, in much the way socialist marxist commie George H.W. Bush did before him. Unlike Ronald Reagan, Obama refused to fill his pep talk with rightwing talking points about taxes, thereby proving he is a marxist from some third world country that Americans can’t find. Mostly because it is not okay for us to send our kids to school. Home schooling ignorance for the win!
Let us return to today.
Having thrown a tizzy fit followed by a spell on the fainting couch when a centrist president said “hey study and get good grades, alright?” we can safely say that no GOP politicos would be so foolish as to shove politics down the throats of school kids.
And so, to safely protect those kids from political ignorance and made up rhetoric,
half wit dipshit republican Alan Hays has announced his intention to introduce a bill to force all of the Florida high school and middle school children he is protecting from milk toast success talks to watch a GOP washed history of America. The bill would force kids to watch Dinesh D’Souza’s “America: the history the right is convinced happened despite all existing evidence.” Though to be fair, that subtitle is just reality, and not the one they actually use.
The general consensus of critics appears to be that the film is lacking factual basis and is at best far fetched. “D’Souza posits a simmering crisis that doesn’t really exist,” notes the Washington post. “America isn’t a documentary; it’s more like the badly filmed version of a badly-written, meandering op-ed piece from a paper that lacks fact checking” said a Wrap review.
D’Souza knows that isn’t why the film was a bust (the Florida bill, if passed, may well double the audience for the film) but rather the forces of evil are at work. Google made it difficult to find showtimes for the film, because Google is in bed with Obama. (The fact that there could be other ways to find a movie show time seems to have escaped the intellectual grasp of D’Souza. Another win for conservative education!) Costco is also in bed with Obama. After selling only 3,600 copies of his book, they pulled it from the store. This is clearly untrue, as Costco can sell 5,600 10 gallon drums of pig knuckles. Surely they can sell D’Souza’s book!
Unless it is even less appetizing than a drum of pig knuckles…
What was most amazing in reading articles about this, was how many times D’Souza was quoted saying people where in bed with Obama. This seems like an unwise turn of phrase for someone who pleaded guilty to illegal campaign contributions made by way of his mistress.
Does he know that the phrase doesn’t mean you literally have to be in bed with the person?
In the plea bargain, his lawyer stated that he hoped “Judge Berman will recognize Mr. D’Souza to be a fundamentally honorable man” who led a “productive and responsible life.”
I guess he hasn’t seen the movie either. D’Souza better hope that a GOP congress critter doesn’t pass a bill requiring judges to watch the film.
Actually, D’Souza was also a policy advisor under Reagan.
“Productive and responsible life…”
At least he isn’t telling kids to stay in school! That is unAmerican!
