North Korea, Hollywood and the Weakness of Obama

The recent developments with the little 6 star general from N. Korea, who is now calling the shots at Sony, should not be wholly unexpected. It’s more in the natural course of things. We’ve been seeing this coming for several decades.

On a minor related note…does this guy have the funniest looking haircut in history? It’s right up there with Al Sharpton’s “Mary Tyler Moore” hairdo during the 70’s…his FBI “rat” years. Or…for that matter…Al’s current “do.” But, we’re “drifting” already. Back to the General who can’t feed his Army.

This Sony thing is simply the outworking of the decades long  drifting of Big Entertainment moguls in Commiewood towards the blatant embracing of Marxism and Stalinism.  It’s been going on forever. You see it in stuff like “The Grapes of Wrath” themed movies, overt praise for Castro (where has Big Fidel gotten off to? Is he sharing digs with Obama’s Ebola Czar…whazzisname?) and silly crap like Johnny Depp’s Tee shirts. Some of this rubbish from Commiewood is attributable to bad taste and slavish following of inane fashion fads. Some to stupidity and complete ignorance of the history of the last century. But some is attributable to the entertainment industry’s incredible dearth of affinity for America’s basic Founding Principles and Freedom. Treasonous Hollywood dorks are blameworthy.

Seeing the Pudgy Little General exercising creative control over Commiewood just seems to be the natural outworking of forces long at work in the smoke-filled (?) and quiche-catered rooms under the big sign in the hills above Hollywood. It was just a matter of time.

Speaking of entertainment…I just read a new novel by Tom Clancy (posthumous …or true ghost writing). It was a real page turner. I read Clancy’s stuff several years ago, but he (or someone) has written several more books since those earlier offerings. Apparently, in Clancyworld, there have been several wars, small and large, since I last looked between a Clancy book cover. I was captivated, but I suspect it was probably due to an unhealthy psychological motive on my part. I fear I am so subconsciously annoyed by the current events that my mind has surreptitiously begun seeking an outlet unhampered by the endless ugly realities surrounding us. So …I’ve degenerated into escapism. In Clancyworld America has a manly and tough patriot in the White House. He has orchestrated successful wars against both China and the Ruskies during the period I wasn’t reading Tom’s stuff. He probably kicked the stuffing out of the middle east terrorists, too. ISIS probably exists in Clancyworld, buy I’m sure they aren’t running a nation (equipped with Our Abrams tanks and Our state of the art fighter jets) primarily occupied with true statecraft such as beheading children and women.

In those books I haven’t (yet) read, I’m sure there was no looting in  Ferguson and no NYPD assassinations prompted by idiots like Al “Rat” Sharpton, Eric Holder and Obama.

It may be escapism…but I highly recommend it…if only for the next two years.

Stephen Bowers

I am an attorney in Las Vegas who has always wanted to draw political cartoons, partly because I like drawing, but mostly because I enjoy ridiculing pompous know-nothings. Verbally debating them gets nowhere. They don't know they're beaten. But poking fun at them in a drawing leaves them without recourse or rebuttal. What can they do...? Call me names, whine, cuss me ... or maybe draw a witty riposte? Unlikely.
