Cultural commentator Mark Dice returns with another video highlighting how the combination of the cult of personality and general ignorance can lead Americans to agree with any ridiculous statement one can think of.
This time Dice, donning his Obama t-shirt once more, has passers by agreeing with him that it is a good idea for the German Communist economist Karl Marx, who died in 1883, to run for US President in 2016.
Describing Karl Marx as “an economic adviser to the Obama administration for many years” Dice doesn’t even have to try to convince the subjects in the video that Obama is now fully endorsing Marx, in his time a supporter of violent Communist revolution, as a candidate for President.
“Should we continue with that policy to lead us to the road of prosperity and utopia we all desire?” Dice asks one man, who replies “I feel a desire to. We should,” adding that if Marx “decides to lead on and pick better decisions, I feel he would.”
Another woman, who clearly has no idea who Marx, the co-author of ‘The Communist Manifesto’ is, is asked by Dice if she considers it a wise decision for Obama to endorse him as President. “Sure,” she replies, “that sound like the best plan of action right now.”
Without even allowing Dice to finish his explanation of how Obama nominated Marx, “his Treasury Secretary,” to be the next President, another man interjects “I think Obama is making a wise decision right here. He’ll do a good job in office, and hopefully he’ll get elected.”
“That would be awesome to see him rise, because he’s doing a good job so far.” the man adds. “We just need the right guy and Karl Marx seems to be the best candidate.” he concludes.
Unlike the younger people Dice speaks to, two older gentleman have no qualms admitting that they have no idea who Marx is, with one declaring “I’m way out of the loop, so I don’t have any advice to give you.”
Dice regularly highlights how many Americans are brainwashed, completely disconnected from reality, or simply uninterested in current events by asking them to sign ridiculous phony petitions and agree with crackpot statements.
He also garnered support for petitions to execute legal gun owners in concentration camps, to add human flesh to school lunches, and to implement “Mandatory Euthanasia” of senior citizens, to name but a few.
