In The Hunger Games, the young heroes of the film were literally trying to survive the big-government, nanny-state ordered “death panel” competition created to thin-out the freedom seeking herd of human sheep who foolishly thought their destiny should be in their hands and not that of the government.
At one point as they televise the games into a huge theatre of wealthy and protected government supporters, it’s impossible not to see the vacuous and superficial faces as a collection of every single demographic group that blindly supports Barack Obama. While comical, it’s also more than frightening in its reality.
As bad as The Hunger Games is for Mr. Obama’s “I’m better than you, so I will think for you” Big-Government image, The Avengers is worse. Much worse.
The basic plot of The Avengers is that the freedom-defending Superheroes have united to try and stop the totalitarian, big-government loving Loki from subjugating all of human-kind.
Like Barack Obama, the despot-wannabe Loki is fond of giving speeches. Also like Mr. Obama, he picks Germany to wax Marxist.
After terrifying and then herding hundreds of theatre goers into a public square, Loki demands that they kneel before him. When they do, he proceeds to give what will become the most quoted political speech of 2012. Precisely because it so eerily echoes the words and theology of Barack Obama and his mentor Saul Alinsky.
Says Loki to the cowering crowd now kneeling before him:
“I come with glad tidings of a world made free - from freedom. Freedom is life's great lie. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life's joy in a mad scramble for power, for identity. Is this not simpler? Is this not your natural state? It is the unspoken truth of humanity: that you crave subjugation. You were made to be ruled. In the end…you will always kneel.”
Bingo. The Obama-Alinsky philosophy in one liberty-destroying sound-bite.
During the course of the movie, it is made clear that Loki -- like Barack Obama -- was handed his position and power in life and did not really earn it. As such, this truth and his obvious insecurities drive him in his maniacal quest for power.
If you need further proof that President Loki…sorry, I mean Obama…wants the government to do all of your thinking, look no further than the virtual woman he and his campaign have just created.
