Dear Leader Knows what's best for us children

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | I would speculate that everyone has about a dozen movies that they watch over and over, often sputtering the lines before the actors give them. I confess to being one of them.

A recent showing of the multi-awarded Gladiator flick found me in a stage of full enthrallment.

Caesar, played to evil perfection by Joaquin Phoenix and Russell Crowes Roman General, Maximus turned Gladiator, remind me of our present-day situation here in the USA. After murdering his father, the new Caesar demonstrated his limited intelligence and outlandish arrogance. Caesar conveyed that he thought of his subjects as his children. He would take care of them and their pedestrian needs without the interference of that disrespectfully bothersome Roman Senate—and they would love him in return. After all, he was Caesar.

Gladiator, then the head general of the Roman Empire and Caesar designate, was one of many who suspected young Caesar illegitimate. He was sure Caesar had murdered his father. Unlike all others, Gladiator refused Caesar's superiority.

Miraculously, Gladiator survives assassination and, unbeknownst to Caesar, gallops from Germania to his house in Spain only to find the charred bodies of his wife and son hanging before their burnt house. Wounded, he collapses after he buries them.

Picked up by a wandering Gladiator showman, he slowly works his way back from Gladiator Vaudeville in the outlying provinces to play the Coliseum in Rome.

You don't have to have a title to be a leader

While Gladiator is en route, Caesar has already arrived at his Roman Palace from where he will rule the largest empire then known to man. He becomes exacerbated by the petty Senators imploring him to make trivial decisions for the benefit of the ordinary citizens. He pledges to eliminate their power.

So how will he govern? Easy! He'll give the populace 150 days of games at the Coliseum. Caesar has loaves of bread thrown into the stands -- sort of like ancient food stamps. The citizenry loves him for it. They feel entitled by Caesar's largesse -- like the children he's deemed them to be.

The Roman populace is entertained as he continues to close down their rights to representative government behind their backs.


Just as Caesar lectured and threatened the Senate and claimed superiority to all, so goes our Dear Leader as he lectures Congress, Supreme Court Judges, Cardinals, Jewish heads of state, and anyone else who would have the temerity to disagree with such superior intellect. He's even called for his own army of proletariats in the form of a civilian force, as well funded, well armed and as well manned as our regular armed forces.

To complement the above, he's claimed new powers to kill anyone he sees fit, both overseas and at home.

You see, Dear Leader's intellectual acuity has been challenged by few and worshipped by all in the MSM. According to them, the evidence is overwhelming. If you disagree-well we all know what that means. You're a racist.

Nobody knew much about Obama's life before the 2008 election. Only a few conservative's bothered to vet him. When they revealed their hard-found information, like Reverend Wright, Louis ''the Jew Hater'' Farrakhan and Bill ''the bomber'' Ayers, they were threatened and labeled racist and right-wing nuts.

Citizens, now regarded as children by Dear Leader have benefited by the gift of his knowledge:

  • Obamacare - snuck through without the vetting of Congress and us children.

  • Energy - A complete disaster!

  • Catholic Church - Dear Leader knows better than THE POPE, CARDINALS, and BISHOPS, PRIESTS — COMBINED!

  • Contraception - Talk about contra-intuitional This brilliance was played to us toddlers as we watched Dear Leader hit the stone wall of the Catholic Church. Today's drop in popularity with women dispute Dear Leader's superior intellect.

  • Israel - The Children of Israel have now been adopted by Dear Leader.

    Pay no attention to that man who's directly elected and responsible for your safety. Dear Leader will provide!

Great Leader even has Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton lecturing us on the war on women, not in China, not under Sharia law but right here in the good ole' USA!

As Dear Leader and his cronies continue to play this shell game, the American public is maturing. No longer willing to believe Daddy O, they're making decisions based on facts, especially the ones that are trickling like one of Kevorkian's slow-drip death machines into the Obama Reelection campaign. Andrew Breitbart, our Gladiator on roller blades, now and for eternity, is dripping fact after fact after fact against a billion dollar campaign.

President Obama, the kids have grown up.

It's time for America to turn thumbs down on Dear Leader and his thugs.
