Stupid Liberal Critics Slam ‘G.I. Joe’ Movie as ‘Anti-Obama Conservative’s Fantasy’

Some have called the latest G.I. Joe flick “pretty bad” but “not completely horrible” – yet still “terrible” — for its plotline and script. But a liberal blog has an idea of people who might like it — conservatives or, more specifically as they put it, the “paranoid wingnut.”

As Asawin Suebsaeng wrote on the liberal-leaning website Mother Jones, “G.I. Joe Retaliation” is “the anti-Obama Conservative’s fantasy.”

What does Suebsaeng see in the sequel to “G.I. Joe: the Rise of the Cobra” that puts it in the category of “political trolling”?

The U.S. president in the movie, a Democrat, is a person foreign-born, who lies about it, and who also uses drones against American citizens, among other features. Without saying it, Suebsaeng seems to be alluding that this person is representative of real-life President Barack Obama whose place of birth has been questioned by some and who has come under recent criticism for his position on drone use over U.S. soil against citizens.

The U.K.’s Metro news in its review too notes there are times when it “seems like a bizarre riff on Obama voters disappointed with their president’s drone strike policy.”
