Obama Killed A Fly! WHO GIVES A SH*T?

mr-miyagiSorry to be so crass, but  it’s like an issue of Star Magazine when they make a big deal about Brad’s new shoes. WHO GIVES A SH*T! In case you haven’t been forwarded the viral video, or haven’t seen the pile of headlines raping the worldwide news sites (AP: “Barack Obama: The human flyswatter,” Canadian Press, NY Daily News, and also TV Personalities Bill Maher, John Stewart, Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Fallon )….check out the video on YouTube. According to ViralVideoChart.com, the video has received over 3.2 million views across the internet since it’s debut on June 16th during a CNBC interview.

Just Curious…Who DOES give a sh*t?

I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t try and find a few internet idiots who actually cared, and in some cases, were actually OFFENDED?! That’s right! I now present to you EXHIBIT A: PETA miffed at President Obama’s fly “execution”. If it was a bird or a dog, I’d understand, but this was a FLY! Nearly everyone has killed an annoying insect quickly without thinking. “Believe it or not, we’ve actually been contacted by multiple media outlets wanting to know PETA’s official response to the executive insect execution. In a nutshell, our position is this: He isn’t the Buddha, he’s a human being, and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act.” And the best part?…The group has sent Obama a device that traps a fly so it can then be released outside.

You think that was bad? Now for EXHIBIT B: Obama kills fly, Obama kills Iranians: Do we need to stop and think before acting?. They agree PETA was a bit extreme, “However, when killing people and invading other countries, some serious thought is required.” Wait…did they just compare him killing a fly to killing people? They continue on…

“Obama is just like the previous US Presidents. He has enormous power. [..] Obama could stop our needless killing and causing of great suffering just as quickly. But he hasn’t done that. He’s behaving just like he did with the fly, acting without considering the consequences of his actions. He’s only human, but he has chosen to take on a position of great power.”

Wow! All that from Obama killing a fly. That take a good amount of imagination. Who thinks of this garbage? At least some people have a sense of humor. Jimmy Fallon remarked “That’s some pretty impressive hand-eye coordination right there. Makes Obama look like a bad ass.” AMEN BROTHER! I guess Mr. Miyagi would be very proud of Obama. Speaking of witch, here’s the famous Ninja re-mix of the legendary “FlyKill”:

    The way I see it. A light hearted “””””incident””””” that was the subject of worldwide news because of this system of mass media’s too many channels leading to repeating the same news over and over making room for the more trivial events to be shown on screen. Some may say “who gives a sh*t”, other’s may laugh and joke about it and of course some will burst into self righteous anger mode and of these a fraction will make sure their view is known and the easy to access communication assures their views will be known.

    Another hypothesis is, besides the self righteous people, other people who like drama might turn to easy-to-incite big voices of PETA and ask: “Uuuuuuuuu what are you going to do/say about it?” and then PETA will have “no choice” (actually they have a choice of not commenting but they will not waste that opportunity) but to retaliate and due to this scandal-drive-environment they will put their intentions shaped through exagerated words and actions.
