Parody Video Lampooning Obama Warmongering Goes Viral

A political ad-style video, a parody intended to ridicule Obama supporters who continue to blindly follow him, was released Sept. 9 by Second City Network and has already "gone viral."

Quick! President Obama needs your help raising big money to fund World War III. The justification for the war: “Because Obama!” Fortunately for the embattled administration, even as public and congressional opposition to its agenda soars, the self-styled progressive group “Americans for Whatever Barack Obama Wants, Did You Know He’s Friends With Jay-Z?” has launched a major (parody) campaign to fund the president’s long sought-after, highly progressive World War. China and Russia are both reportedly set to participate, too. 

The massive global war, which will apparently feature “millions of troops, thousands of organic grass-fed bombs, hybrid Prius tanks,” and much more, is expected to cost $1.6 trillion, with a T, supporters say. However, donors to the cause can expect great rewards, like a piece of rubble from a war-torn Middle Eastern country kissed by warmonger extraordinaire Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).

For a donation of $100 or more, World War III supporters can even get a day-pass to leave their refugee camp once the progressive destruction begins. A U.S. senator can be purchased on an annual basis for a mere $10 million, explains the advertisement by “Americans for Whatever Barack Obama Wants, Did You Know He’s Friends With Jay-Z?”  

“World War III is a very important, very progressive war that Obama tells me is very important, so it must be!" declares Tom, a “barista” coffee maker who styles himself a “scholar on social policy” and fervent Obama supporter. “I mean, there is no way that he or the cabal of corporate interests, spy agencies, and shadow bankers that tell him what to do would ever mislead us.” Obama’s war, Tom assures viewers in a nod to the “Occupy” movement, will be much different from Republican wars.

Well, not really. The political ad-style video (available at link below) is actually just a parody apparently intended to ridicule Obama supporters — at least the few that remain — who continue to blindly back the administration’s agenda in the face of a long trail of broken campaign promises. Despite its hilarious name, the group, made up of stereotypical “progressive” activists, is not real either. Neither is the effort to solicit donations for another major war.
