Is everything fake now? Is anything really “real” anymore? Oh yeah, there’s real death and real rocketry and real danger in the Korean Peninsula produced by a Fake leader in North Korea and a naive flim-flam man in Washington, D.C.. But what about in America? Is anything real in America? Or rather is there no sphere of life left untouched by fakery in post-Obama America?
Since the moment we named the post-Obama apocalypse “The Age Of Fake” the label rings truer with every passing day. From the mundane to the significant we are in the Obama Age Of Fake. Let’s start with the mundane.
Dancing With The Stars
We view “reality shows” and televised “contests” and “professional wrestling” with the same disdain as soiled diapers – we know they are there but we want nothing to do with them. It is with a degree of self-loathing that we violate our intent never to discuss the Bristol Palin appearances on a show called “Dancing With The Stars“. But the situation with that show has become such an example of FAKE that we feel compelled to comment.
This past weekend the hysteria over this fake dancing show reached such a high level of discussion and hypocrisy that it is impossible to ignore any longer. We do know that many people enjoy these “reality”, “contest”, “wrestling” shows. We have no problem with anyone enjoying entertainments we find substandard. But in order to enjoy these fake “reality/contests/wrestling” shows the viewer must indulge in the “willing suspension of disbelief”
All the TV shows that bill themselves as “reality” shows or contests or “professional wrestling” are carefully choreographed entertainments in which the manipulations by producers create the entertainment. The “voting” by the public for these shows as well as the “judges” are all props in the hands of wily producers designed to hook the viewer one way or the other.
Imagine our paralysis when we read repeated articles by Obama supporters outraged by Bristol Palin’s appearance on the dance contest. It was as if we had been hit with the Cruciatus Curse.
The very websites and people who implored votes for celebrity Obama, the very same people who declared Obama the best choice in the 2008 primaries because he was a “media darling”, the very same people who promoted a candidate without any experience or ability in his field of competition – are now upset because a celebrity candidate without any dance experience is getting votes based on the popularity of her mom.
“Brandy got robbed” wailed these hypocrites. Somehow the reason (hint: viewers) escapes these dolts. Bristol Palin got invited to participate in the show because she brought what the producers wanted: eyeballs. These shows are designed to attract viewers not to promote “the best” or “talent”.
The moaning and groaning by the hypocrites is sure to continue until the current “competition” ends. It will do no good to complain about a “politicized” dance show contest while an unqualified, inexperienced, celebrity sits in the Oval Office. It’s little wonder that so many are saying “Vote Palin” to “Make An Obot Cry“.
TSA Fake Security
Dr. Ben Franklin said “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” In the case of the TSA comedy reality shows at many airports around the country the security is utterly FAKE.
Little girls and little boys searched as if they are prison inmates (the boy in the video below had already undergone a metal detector). Adult women groped like Arnold Schwarzenegger dates. Adult men learning what it is like to be adult women.
It’s fake security in a land that is increasingly less “the land of the free and the home of the brave.” What is needed is selective profiling of the Tim McVeigh’s, the Islamic Jihadists, the lonely nuts, and the just plain nuts.
The Fake News
It is simply too late for Big Media to now write articles about the Obama Dimocrats, the white working class and the Cult of Obama. Elenor Clift is simply too late with too little. Her latest on the Cult Of Obama and the damage done is simply too too late. It’s too fake because it is so late:
“Democrats got the lowest share of the white vote in this midterm election than in any congressional election since World War II, losing key races in Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Michigan, and every contested election in Ohio, which spells trouble for President Obama’s reelection. No Democrat can win the White House without these Midwestern swing states, and they are all decimated by job losses that Obama has offered no road map to recover. [snip]
Part of Obama’s problem is that there’s too much hero worship around him, and that translates into a reluctance to fault him for anything, except maybe that he didn’t make a good enough case for all the wonderful things he’s done. [snip]
In his post-election press conference, Obama said there must be easier ways to learn the hard lessons of politics than getting the shellacking he and the Democrats got. There are, and if his aides weren’t so in love with him and wrapped up in the idea of him as a transformational president, they might have seen this coming. Obama’s problems with white working-class voters surfaced during the primaries, when he lost West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Ohio to Hillary, and those problems could prove lethal in 2012 not only for Obama but for the five Democratic senators who are up for reelection in the Midwest and the Rust Belt.
Obama is an undefined figure to much of the country, and to his fellow Democrats. Though he’s portrayed as a liberal, it’s not clear what he’ll fight for, and he keeps that deliberately vague, perhaps hoping to deliver on the post-partisan promise his election represented.“
It’s too late. It’s FAKE. All this phony baloney “analysis” in 2010 about what was obvious in 2007. It’s fake “cover your ass” analysis from phonies who either did not know and therefore should not be listened to or did know and kept quiet.
Fake On Fake On Fake
“A man leading the Taliban side of peace talks with the Afghan government was an impersonator, an Afghan close to the negotiations said Tuesday, an embarrassing revelation for Afghan officials who have promoted reconciliation efforts as the best chance for ending the war.
Quickly moving to do damage control, President Hamid Karzai dismissed the reports as “propaganda,” saying neither he nor any other members of his government had ever met with a man named Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansour — one of highest ranking members of the Taliban council leading the insurgency.
The report about the impostor first appeared in The New York Times and the Washington Post.
An Afghan familiar with the reconciliation efforts, speaking confirmed that a delegate claiming to be Mansour “was a fraud.” He spoke on condition of anonymity so as not to jeopardize his contacts with both sides.”
Oh, and they paid Mansour to attend the meetings as well as flew the fake on NATO aircraft.
Book Mansour on Dancing With The Stars. Team him up with Obama. They can dance and get all the applause they desire. Then the Obama enablers can vote for the fakes. We won’t watch.
We want the Obama reality show canceled. We’ve had enough of fakes.
