What is that sound? Oh, that’s the sound of panic. The Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision opened the spigot for unlimited spending on candidates by Super PACs and while Obama’s campaign is taking in substantial donations it can’t compare to dump-trucks of cash the Romney campaign commands. So many billions of dollars are at stake here, not just the money being funneled with a fire hose into swing states as we speak, but hundreds of billions in lost revenue for the next 4 years if Romney takes over to extend the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. The power elite wants a candidate they can control and Romney is their guy — an etch-a-sketch cipher who stands for nothing. The less he stands for, the less he knows, the higher his poll numbers climb. America eats stupid for breakfast, we’ve known this for a long time, but this kind of thing seems like it crosses the line.
Now, a major cable provider is allowing viewers to watch the Obama hate movie, arguably one of the stupidest things ever put on film. A 90-minute campaign ad called a documentary and then pawned off on the American people as a legitimate film, for free. Let’s see how many people we can brainwash with out-and-out lies?
A major cable provider is offering a notorious anti-Obama movie to all its subscribers for free. The company, Armstrong Cable, operates in six states including Pennsylvania and the critical swing state of Ohio. The move comes just days after the Armstrong’s Chairman of the Board donated tens of thousands of dollars to the Romney campaign and the Republican National Committee.
The film, “2016: Obama’s America,” has been widely panned by critics and debunked by fact checkers. Written and narrated by conservative author Dinesh D’Souza, it claims Obama’s “worldview… was largely shaped by the anti-colonalist, anti-white and anti-Christian politics of Obama’s supposedly radical Kenyan father,” who was largely absent from his life. The point of the movie, according to a review in the Washington Post, is to convince viewers “that Obama hates America.” It ‘s been roundly rebuked as “fear-mongering of the worst kind.”
Armstrong recently started offering the movie for free, on demand, to all of its subscribers.
