On Monday, the comedy group Second City released what Newsbusters' Noel Sheppard called "an absolutely hysterical video depicting the absurdity of mindless Obama automatons supporting war just because the man they voted for says it’s a good idea."
The video depicts four mindless Obama supporters representing the organization “Americans for Whatever Barack Obama Wants, Did You Know He’s Friends With Jay-Z?” try to raise $1.6 trillion to fund World War III.
“Our president can’t launch into another war without you. And remember: when we voted for him in 2008 and 2012, we promised to support him no matter what," one person says. “That’s why we here at the ‘Americans for Whatever Barack Obama Wants, Did You Know He’s Friends With Jay-Z?’ have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund World War III.”
“And America is dead-a*s broke, so our goal is to raise $1.6 trillion on behalf of the U.S. government,” one person says.
“That’s where you come in.”
“Even a small donation will make all the difference.”
“World War III is a very important, very progressive war that Obama tells me is very important. So it must be.”
“World War III is not going to be like those other Republican wars fought on just 1 percent of the world; this war is going to be fought on 99 percent of the world,” the video says. “It will be everywhere: Russia, China, Africa, Cincinnati, your favorite brunch spot — the one with those kicka*s ranchero breakfast burritos.”
As an incentive, the video offers those pledging $25 a piece of rubble from a war-torn Middle Eastern country, kissed by Sen. Lindsey Graham, while $100 donations gets donors a day pass to leave their local refugee camp.
Ten dollars gets one a "shout out" on social media. In fact, the video promises that World War III will be the most social media-focused war in history.
"It’ll be all over Twitter, Facebook, Vine, Pinterest, and whatever eventually replaces Pinterest, and I mean, just think of all the hilarious skits we can make of cats reacting to their owners’ homes being obliterated," the video says. “Lots of shock, but tons of awww.”
At least until Facebook decides the videos violate their terms of service.
"So please, help us reach our goal of $1.6 trillion so we can make World War III a reality. Why? Because Obama," the video says.
Sadly, the video demonstrates the mindset of so many Obama supporters on a number of issues.
"Try to name all the Democrats and members of the media that are supporting an attack on Syria 'Because Obama,'" Sheppard wrote.
