There’s a line delivered by the “old man” in the movie “A Christmas Story” – “Don’t worry…he knows. He always knows”. He’s talking about Santa of course.
Outside in the real world, we have our own versions of Santa Claus to deal with. Except the modern-day version of old St. Nick is a nightmare.
Obama warns to not trust free and open social media: “People can have entirely different realities”. – via theduran.com
Such brilliance! “People can have entirely different realities.” No frickin’ way! Geez, who would have thought.
Like the bully at school or work, or the know-it-all relative, boss or life partner who has all the answers – these modern day Santa Clauses know – they always know. And they’re more than happy to tell you how to think, how to live your life, what to read, what not to read and on and on. And of course, their golden rods of intellectual vomit only applies to you – not to them.
“All of us in leadership have to find ways in which we can recreate a common space on the Internet,” Obama said.
“One of the dangers of the Internet is that people can have entirely different realities, they can be just cocooned in information that reinforces their current biases,” Obama continued.
Hey dumbski – there already is a common space where people with “different realities” can read what they want to read, ignore what they don’t want to read, engage in conversation or have none of it…it’s called the Internet.
Obama also said that social media should promote diverse views in a way that “doesn’t lead to a Balkanization of our society”.
Maybe it was his 8 tortured years as POTUS where the US, under his leadership, continued to bomb one country after another into oblivion, did not close Guantanamo Bay as promised, did little to honor our nation’s veterans, butchered the economy, gave us the joke that is “Obamacare” that has led to his incoherent ramblings; and these being just the highlights from his failed 8 years of nonsense, not to mention the thousands of innocent lives lost from the non-stop wars of death and destruction.
This is the man we should listen to. He knows…he always knows.
And the one doing the interviewing of “King” Obama: None other than that intellectual giant, Prince Harry of Britain. Two supreme nutjobs, of the elitist variety, exchanging knowing glances, hearty handshakes and slaps on the back with their globalist garbage.
Whether left or right…it doesn’t matter. Whether forward or backward thinking…it doesn’t matter. They could give a shyte about what you think, care about or desire if it saunters even a waltz step away from their version of nirvana that they have for you – but not them.
Life among creeps is such a bummer!
