Review for 2016: Obama's
America PG Documentary/Comedy/Fantasy 1:27
by John Thielking
I would like to say that there is one movie out there that is
purported to be a documentary, but in reality is a pure flight of
fantasy. This movie is 2016: Obama's America. The movie starts out
sounding somewhat fair and balanced, with only the pro-war stance
that the US is being hypocritical by bombing Libya but not invading
or bombing Iran or Syria giving away it's ultimate bias. Towards the
end, however, the movie veers into the twilight zone/fantasy land
where it points out Obama's anti-imperialist past where he
associated with the likes of Mr. Ayers and the Reverend J. Wright.
The movie takes seriously the possibility that Obama will return to
his radical roots in terms of the policies he will implement if he
is re-selected. That in my view is about as likely as Mr Clinton
actually giving Leonard Peltier clemency or deciding to inhale.
Obama has clearly gone over to the Dark Side of targeted killing
using drones and full support of the Capitalist gambling/bankers'
class and is not likely to return. The only thing shocking about
this movie is the premise that Obama returning to his radical,
anti-imperialist roots would somehow be bad for the US or the
world. Three stars.
This movie ranks as being nonviolent because it has only 4 violent
scenes in it. These include some scenes of warfare, a story
about a violent father who killed someone, and who had both his legs
amputated and who beat his wife and there is a story of a father's
death. Also included are references to terrorist bombing plots
committed by Mr. Ayers and others that the movie tries to link to
Obama. There was no smoking in this movie.
The previews include: nonviolent previews for Cirque Du Soleil,
Chasing Mavericks and Trouble With The Curve and a somewhat violent
preview for Zero Dark Thirty.
