Barack and Michelle Obama Secure Netflix Deal: Why This Should Scare You

In a multi-year deal with Netflix, Michelle and Barak Obama are taking on a series of both scripted and documentary productions.

While the tide has been turning as of late for conservatives in the culture, the left had, for the last few decades, truly won the culture war. If there’s one thing the left has down, using the news and entertainment media to blatantly push their narratives.

Now, Obama, the first true “pop culture” President, has secured his role in continuing to indoctrinate future generations for many, many years.

In a multi-year deal with Netflix, Michelle and Barak Obama are taking on a series of both scripted and documentary productions to no doubt perpetuate every pervasive leftist narrative of our time from the LGBTQ agenda to gun control to the destruction of sovereign borders.

One can already hear the heart-wrenching interviews with illegal immigrants or terminally ill Obamacare recipients.

The deal was announced via Twitter on Monday, The Hill reports.

 

“President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama have entered into a multi-year agreement to produce films and series for Netflix, potentially including scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries, and features,” Netflix wrote.

The Hill notes that neither Netflix nor the Obamas had any further details on the deal, but that the New York Times had initially reported on the inception of the agreement back in March.

“President and Mrs. Obama have always believed in the power of storytelling to inspire,” Eric Schultz, an Obama senior adviser, told the NYT at the time.

“Throughout their lives, they have lifted up stories of people whose efforts to make a difference are quietly changing the world for the better. As they consider their future personal plans, they continue to explore new ways to help others tell and share their stories,” he continued.

Read: storytelling would be a fantastic way for the Obamas to continue to push the virtue-signaling, emotionally-driven identity politics that is the leftist narrative in 2018.

Before Obama even left office, there was discussion of his getting involved in media or digital communications when his time at the White House was through.

“That’s a media that connects us with people and stories we might otherwise never know,” he said of filmmaking in 2016. “And it puts us in the shoes of people potentially on the other side of the world or the neighborhood very different than the one we grew up in.”

The Daily Wire’s Emily Zanotti notes this is quite fitting for the former POTUS.

“Obama has…always wanted to be a Hollywood power player,” she says,” and this is his shot. Netflix has 125 million subscribers, and some of those are bound to be such die-hard Obama fans they’d watch anything he’d produce.”

Accused Sexual Assaulter Chris Cuomo says Trump Supporters are ‘Not Good People’

What’s the one about the glass houses and the stones?

Chris Cuomo

Well it takes one to know one, as they say.

Chris Cuomo, CNN primetime anchor and a man accused of sexually groping his former boss in 2005, has now taken a pot-shot at the entirety of the MAGA-verse, in a tone deaf rant on his television program.

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo said Monday during the opening of his show “Cuomo Prime Time” that Republicans were “all-in” on former President Donald Trump’s claims he won the 2020 election.

Cuomo said, “We’ve never seen one party in this damnable two-party system that we insist on go all-in on a lie. So half of your political system is invested in a lie. That’s happening. It’s not just Trump. The whole party practically backs actively or passively, selling that the election was not legitimate.”

And then…

On Democrats’ objection to elections, Cuomo said, “Questioning is different than finding no proof and then lying and refusing to certify. That’s what Trump and Co. did. There are not good people on both sides of this argument. And I will be dammed if I sit by and don’t say this as plainly as possible because this will be remembered. There are not good people on both sides. This is not a good faith dispute. It is bad faith. They know the election was not rigged. They know it was legitimate. Anyone telling you with full knowledge that they have no proof and yet the election wasn’t legit is part of an effort that may lead us to an all-time low.”

Once again, the network has proved that their editorial programming is little more than a series of purposefully-inflammatory rhetoric meant to sell commercials.

Jamie Lee Curtis Adds January 6th Sub-Plot to New ‘Halloween’ Movie

Wait…what?!

Published

on

Hollywood has long been filled with liberal narratives and radical leftist ideology.  The wealthy elites who inhabit the culture, city, and industry of Tinsel Town lean left more consistently than that tower in Pisa, Italy.  Americans have learned to live with this, just so long as the work they produce isn’t overtly politically charged or hateful toward certain cultural demographics.

This week, however, one of Hollywood’s most famous actresses has suggested that her latest schlocky horror movie is actually a high-brow take on the January 6th insurrection.

In a interview with filmmaker Eli Roth on the “History of Horror” podcast, Jamie Lee Curtis explained that the last two Halloween movies — Halloween in 2018 and Halloween Kills, which opens Friday — are part of a planned trilogy she is making with director David Gordon Green.

Curtis said the 2018 Halloween movie reflected the themes of the #MeToo movement, including the notion of women seizing power.

“[When] we were launching the 2018 movie, it was right in the center of the MeToo movement,” she said. “And so women taking power and speaking truth to power and voicing their experiences as trauma victims was echoing all over the world when we released that movie — a movie about a woman taking power from her trauma against her oppressor.”

Listen Below:

“So I think there was this spectacular confluence of life and evolution of women and Laurie Strode coming to grips with Michael Myers.”

Halloween Kills picks up on the same night where the previous movie ended, with a wounded Laurie Strode (Curtis) fleeing her burning house.

“The second movie is about mob violence,” the actress said.

And then…

“We have just in America watched a mob descend on January 6 with nooses and stun guns and members of Congress in the building,” she continued. “And we all watched it on TV.”

Curtis described the new movie as the story of a “mob descending together,” comprised of people who are going “to take matters into their own hands.”

The movie itself has garnered less than enthusiastic reviews, with one critic going so far as to say that the series appears to be “stuck” in 1978.
