Garth Kant: 'Dallas' is 'taking orders from Obama'

In a March 31, 2014 column for WorldNetDaily, Garth Kant suggests that the TV show "Dallas" is actually a propaganda tool for the Obama administration.

"The Obama administration may be strategically writing its agenda into your favorite television shows," he writes.

Kant's conspiracy theory is based on the fact that a scene in the TV show promoted opposition to the already controversial practice of fracking.

There's reason to wonder just how many of its policies the Obama administration may have been "nagging" Hollywood to promote.

That's because the similarities between a recent television episode and one of the latest moves by the administration may be too uncanny to be mere coincidence.

The March 10 episode of TNT's "Dallas" featured a plot in which the main character, Bobby Ewing, conspires with the Sierra Club to highlight the purported plight of the lesser prairie chicken to stop fracking on the Southfork Ranch.

Seventeen days later, the Obama administration’s U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced it had listed the lesser prairie chicken as a threatened species.

That would explain why natural gas exploration has dramatically increased under the Obama administration. Meanwhile, the US Fish and Wildlife Service has been warning about threats to the lesser prairie chicken's population decline for the last 15 years.

Sooner or later, the lunatics at WorldNetDaily are going to have to accept the fact that some things in life are not Obama scandals.
