Barack Obama: the New Emperor Palpatine

Written by John Renken on December 27, 2013

This morning I was trolling Facebook and thinking about the nature of the president and found the most ominous picture of Obama.

It was a picture of him appearing very stern and militant holding a mostly red light saber with the head of what appears to be an eagle in his left hand and a crossbow in his right hand, quiver full of arrows on his back, and riding a lion.

I found a couple of interesting details about the crossbow. The first was that it is made out of a some kind of gun stock with the words “Game Changer” and “hope” written on it. The second was that it has a Magazine that looks like an American flag.

When we take a look at that picture it should invoke a recollection of another leader that has a following in the world of Science Fiction: Emperor Palpatine, the Dark Lord of the Sith from Star Wars. As a matter of fact, if I believed in the nonsense of reincarnation I would swear Emperor Obama, I mean President Obama, is the reincarnation of Emperor Palpatine. When you look at the similarities it should at the very least make you more concerned with how you cast your vote in 2016 because of the abuse of power that we have seen from him.

In just a quick look at the President of the United States, I see at least four things that read like they came from the George Lucas Script of the ascension and rule of Emperor Palpatine.

First, both Emperor Palpatine and President Obama were unknown senators that managed to ascend to power in record-breaking time. Interestingly enough, both had relatively unknown backing as well as pseudonyms which they used to propel their political careers (Dark Sidious and Barry Soetoro)

Second, they both were extremely manipulative speakers who would motivate people into a frenzy by promising them Hope and Change. However neither had the ability to provide those desires.(The lie of Hope and Change)

Third, both promised a transparent model of political leadership. Palpatine’s rule was cloaked in secrecy all the way from leading a dual life to behind the scene meetings to harass and spy on his potential opponents. President Obama has spied on the American people, repeatedly refused reporters access to meetings, and just like Palpatine, held secret meetings that advanced his agenda (Promise of Transparency) (Obama most secretive)

Finally, and the most terrifying, is the consolidation of power by eliminating checks and balances. Emperor Palpatine successfully manipulated an entire government into not only allowing him to stay in power much longer than he should of, but also got them to approve him new powers to be faster and more effective. President Obama has asked to take more and more powers from the legislative and judicial branches of government. He has on multiple occasions spoken of his disdain of the constitution, the checks and balances of government limiting affects on his agenda. (Give me the power)

You might think I am joking, but I assure you I am not. Turmoil has engulfed the United States, and by extension the world. Our foreign policy, instead of bringing or enforcing peace, has emboldened radical Islamic fighters in more countries than we can contain (see the use of the Trade Federation in Episode 1). Our weakness disguised as an attempt to appear fair and optimistic that people will do the right thing has led to a nearly nuclear weapon cable Iran. Our economic policies that promised job creation and lowering unemployment have destroyed jobs, increased unemployment, and skyrocketed “Entitlements.” Finally, our own freedoms are being stripped away under the guise of the message of Hope and Change that will fundamentally change our nation.

It is time for the rebellion to begin. We must eliminate those in all three branches who are self-serving, power-hungry, hoarding wealth, and destroying liberty by replacing them in 2014 and 2016 election cycles.
