It's a Flier? It's a Parking Ticket? It's...the 'The Obama Deception'?!

Posted By on Fri, Jul 10, 2009 at 3:50 PM

At an undisclosed time between last evening and this morning, someone or perhaps even something placed circular white DVDs in square white envelopes on the windshields of more than a few motor vehicles in the Mission of San Francisco.

These DVDs, interestingly entitled, The Obama Deception, feature a two-hour documentary that takes vague and unfounded shots at President Barack Obama, informing us that our president is a pawn of Wall Street elites (who by the way, purposely engineered the country's financial problems, you know, sort of like how 9/11 was an inside job) and eventually, in no subtle way  compares him to Adolf Hitler. If you believe the writing on the DVD, the film was put together by one Alex Jones, a cherubic radio host (and 9/11 truther) with a gravelly Dallas accent and an off-the-wall answer for everything.

If Alex Jones did in fact make and distribute this DVD, it may be worth noting that Jones himself has been the subject of a documentary entitled New World Order, a investigation into the lives of conspiracy theorists who ardently believe that a few elite and secretive persons and committees are trying to take over the world, and gradually succeeding (disappointingly, Pinky and the Brain are absent from this discussion).

If your car was one of those that received a copy of The Obama Deception, all we can say right now is do not be alarmed. The eagle still flies at midnight, and the rapture is not yet upon us. The DVD, as far as we know, does not self-destruct. It a pinch, however, we do recommend its use as a substitute disc for Frisbee golf.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
