The MSM-Obama love fest continues.
Newsweek’s Steve Daly, author of last week’s cover story, “We’re All Trekkies Now”:
….Spock’s cool, analytical nature feels more fascinating and topical than ever now that we’ve put a sort of Vulcan in the White House. All through the election campaign, columnists compared President Obama’s unflappably logical demeanor and prominent ears with Mr. Spock’s. But as Spock’s complicated racial backstory is spun out in detail in the new “Trek”—right back into childhood — the Obama parallels keep deepening. Like Obama, Spock is the product of a mixed marriage (actually, an interstellar mixed marriage), and he suffers blunt manifestations of prejudice as a result.
A ‘Vulcan’? He acts more like a character from Star Wars—Jar Jar Binks.
Only a leftwingnut would interpret Obama’s election to the White House as “manifestations of prejudice”. Rather than posessing a Spock-like ‘logical demeanor’, Obama is an egotistical, manipulative, nihilist. His “I won” declaration is a mandate to plow right over the Constitution and dictate his own agenda.
No praise for THE ONE would be complete without the requisite anti-Bush/anti-military bashing:
There’s one more intriguing allegorical overtone to the new “Trek,” perhaps completely accidental. With the willfully hegemonic Bush administration now gone, the tenets of Roddenberry’s fictional universe feel very much in step with current events. Whether you’re happy about it or not, the Obama foreign policy, at least for now, emphasizes cross-cultural exchange and eschews imperialistic swagger. That sounds very much in sync with the Federation’s Prime Directive, which stipulates that humanity should observe but never interfere with alien cultures (no Iraq-style invasions, in other words).
Obama’s “Prime Directive” is a socialist takeover of banks, private industry, and corporations, and “spreading the wealth”. He’ll interfere with the economy until it collapses, but when it comes to our nation’s security, ‘interfering’ with the world’s malefactors is out of the question.
Note to Daly:
Did Spock view himself as a messianic savior? Did Spock accept money from a corrupt real estate businessman (Rezko) while the people in his neighborhhod lived in squalor? Did Spock launch his career from the home of domestic terrorists (Ayers, Dohrn)? Nah, he’s way too ‘cool’ for that.
Get up off your knees and wipe your chin.
