Did you know that Obama has rage, and that this rage has identifiable roots?
I was unaware of Obama’s rage, so I hadn’t felt the need to investigate the roots of it. But thankfully, a right-wing Republican who was once a movie producer in Hollywood and now lives in Kalispell is producing a movie that will answer these important questions.
The movie is called “Obama 2016” and is based on a book, released last year, entitled “The Roots of Obama’s Rage.” The producer’s name is Gerald Molen. Recently Molen spoke to the GOP in the Flathead Valley where he lives. As the Button Valley Bugle reports, Molen described what he said is Obama’s “doomsday vision of the United States’ future” which includes “socialism” and “the end of America.”
This will be fine cinema no doubt, especially if the trailer for the movie (now on Youtube) is any indication. The trailer, from start to finish, is mostly a bunch of incendiary images of black people, shouting, jumping around, rioting and marching. Of particular interest to me is a clip of a bunch of young dark-skinned children, fighting over money and property on a monopoly board. The message, apparently, is that our great wealth is on the verge of falling to the masses of people of color. Obama’s rage could be to blame.
But fear not. This film is well sourced. Molen told a local newspaper that the film is “careful to avoid conspiracy theories.”
Obama’s “rage,” the trailer says, is rooted in his desire to “right the wrongs of white colonialism” that were visited upon African nations.
This blockbuster movie, according to the Flathead Beacon, will open in Houston July 13th and then “to a wider audience” on July 29th. Alas, the audience consisting of trashy white people with no teeth is pretty limited, so let’s wish Molen luck.
A few points of interest regarding Molen. First, his bio prominently states that he is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, meaning that he is likely coming out big for Romney and might have a religious basis for his advocacy.
Second, Molen was one of the producers of Schindler’s List, and won an academy award for his work on that film.
Molen may have done good work on the business end of Schindler’s List, but it’s clear that he was totally oblivious to what the story was about. The holocaust was a lesson in what happens when hate-mongers work tirelessly to persuade society that certain groups of people–ethnic, religious or other–are to blame for all of society’s problems. Molen might want to read a little history, as in, a history of Germany during the thirty years leading up to World War II. The people that did, in pre-war Germany, the kind of thing that Molen is doing now (inciting hatred via grand conspiracies) were called Nazis.
There’s one thing that is stated in Molen’s Wikipedia bio cannot possibly be true. The bio says he “works closely with Steven Spielberg.” He may have done so in the past, but not any more. Spielberg doesn’t hang around with the likes of Molen.
