New Pro-Obama Propaganda Film Hits Theaters

SmallBusiness

This is one of the most disturbing things I’ve seen in a long time: the kind of cult-like adulation you see in Banana Republics, God help us!

No, it’s not satire.

Ben Howe remarks at Red State:

I am in shock that this is real.  This is the type of insane hero worship we are up against folks.  If we win, there’s going to be fallout.  If we lose, it’ll be worse.

Benny Johnson writes at The Blaze:

Hollywood has taken political propaganda to a new level this week with the release of “The Obama Effect.”

The production glorifies the ‘08 campaign through the eyes of a man who just had a heart attack and needs a new purpose in life. The character joins the Obama campaign and begins a (creepy) cult-like worshiping of the then unknown one-term Senator. His manic obsession leads to marital strain, quitting his job and a run-in with his gun-obsessed, cocaine-snorting Republican nephew who is “anti-black people,” even though he himself is black.

The Orwellian take-home message at the end of the trailer — they actually say this –is:

“Anyone who is with the Obama Campaign is gonna be alright!”

Breitbart observes:

The irony here is that an Obama valentine like “Effect” couldn’t hit theaters if it weren’t for the Citizens United case the Left hates with such a passion.

Box Office Mojo reports that the film took in only $73,000 after opening in 25 theaters over the weekend.

In contrast, Dinesh D’Souza’s anti-Obama documentary, “2016,” made $31,750 in the same weekend from just ONE theater.

    I’m tempted to go see it just for a good laugh. I can’t believe they made a movie this stupid…oh wait, yea…I can believe it.

    Glad to see that 2016 did so much better. It’s a good sign…
