Update on a modest prediction or: confirmed - I have psychic powers

I previously made the following prediction:

not long after ABC's reboot of the sci-fi series V launches, the aliens in the show will be viewed as analagous to the Obama administration by persons like Glenn Beck and such.
The show's premier was last night. It took one day.

"'V' aims at Obamamania"

Imagine this. At a time of political turmoil, a charismatic, telegenic new leader arrives virtually out of nowhere. He offers a message of hope and reconciliation based on compromise and promises to marshal technology for a better future that will include universal health care.

The news media swoons in admiration -- one simpering anchorman even shouts at a reporter who asks a tough question: "Why don't you show some respect?!" The public is likewise smitten, except for a few nut cases who circulate batty rumors on the Internet about the leader's origins and intentions. The leader, undismayed, offers assurances that are soothing, if also just a tiny bit condescending: "Embracing change is never easy."

So, does that sound like anyone you know?
Yes, when the show was created in 1983 with the same exact plot and premise, it was obviously done as an allegorical tale about the future presidency of Barack Obama. The bit about universal health care was also obviously meant to demonstrate that President Obama is trying to trick the American people into accepting repressive government; it certainly wasn't a joke based on health technology from outerspace aliens truly being "universal."

"Is Obama an alien? ‘V’ and the age of hysteria"

The appearance of “V,” a refried UFO show on ABC, suggests that President Barack Obama is a dangerous alien. What’s interesting is that this new series is by a major network that went unconscionably gaga over Obama last year.

Such reportage — the gushing, idolatrous positivism issued by Katie Couric and Charles Gibson in the 2008 race, a perfect, present-day equivalent of Aldous Huxley’s “feelies” — is viewed here as it is with Huxley: as totalitarian. Elizabeth Mitchell, Earth Mother incarnate from the “Lost” series, back from True North to form an underground, is definitely worth the watch. Maybe they are cruising under the censors as they do in “Lost,” like the 19th-century Russians did, but the insurgents here very definitely view the federal government with its “sleeper cells” bringing “endless wars,” duplicitously “spreading hope,” pitching healthcare bribes to the clerks and proles and cultivating the blind devotion of the young in the Maoist and Leninist traditions as totalitarian. This could get interesting.
"V: The New Series or Obama Takes Manhattan"

So, dont know if anyone saw this last night, but I felt a bit of Obama satire going on. Alien sleeper cells come to Earth to ruin it, then the aliens land and use propaganda to bring us hope and change, including...wait for it...universal health care! Theres also the legion of young brownshirts, the control of the media. This should be interesting with the shoe on the other foot.
"'Left Lashes Out at ‘V’, Obama’Friendly ABC Purges Showrunner"

Last night a brave and insightful documentary was aired that accurately portrayed the wave of ObamaMania that swept the nation. It was called “V” and aired on ABC to mostly rave reviews and tremendous ratings.
"Parallels to Obamamania in ABC's 'V' Sci-Fi Mini-Series, Plus Reporter Helps the Aliens"

The top producer of the mini-series, set to air over the next four Tuesdays and then return in March, denied to USA Today's Levin's any parallels to Obama:

Others on both sides of the political spectrum may point to the visitors' explicit promises of hope, change and universal health care as a pointed reference to pledges of the Obama administration. But [Executive Producer Scott] Peters says the show has been in the works since 2007. Reality was “never really a factor,” he says. “There's no political message being shoved down anyone's throat.”
Obviously, the producer denying the show is an allegory about President Obama is proof that the show is an allegory about President Obama.

"V" Returns

So that's why Obama is hiding his long form birth certificate! Under race, instead of "Colored" or "Negro" it says, "Carnivorous Lizard."
Kudos for working birther denialism and racism into it.

"'V' Premier has Obama's promises all over it"

I watched the premier of the series 'V' on ABC last night with my wife. The press wasn't kidding - it was a frontal assault on Obama's policies. Two scenes in particular were eye-openers. One was later in the show when a suck-up media reporter was interviewing the alien leader "Anna." In the interview, the alien promised what the reported correctly pointed out was "universal healthcare." That is an Obama promise that he can't keep. The other scene was before the interview when the same reporter was being prepped and Anna demanded that he ask no questions that would make the visitors look bad. This is modus operindi of the Obama White House.
"ABC’s “V” A Knock Against The Obama Administration?"

What really grabbed me were the parallels between the V storyline and the realities of the Obama administration.
"'V offering better universal health care than Obama"

I was just drawing paralells with 'V'. They even mentioned Hope and Change!!! I'm surprised that the communications Czar from the Obama administration allowed this show to make it on naitonal t.v.
"The Parallels of V & the Obama Administration"

The simularities are uncanny.V is a television mini series that made its debut last night about Aliens who come to earth. They promise hope and change, health care for all, dictate over the type of press and they have young adults/teenagers in a grass roots campaign dress up in V uniforms to serve them which is kind of reminiscent of Obama's vision of recruiting American youths into his Civilian Defense Force.
That was posted by someone going by the moniker "David Duke is Right"

"ABC’s “V” - A Scathing Critique of the Establishment and Obama"

I tuned into catch the series premiere of ABC’s new Sci-Fi series “V” and was pleasantly surprised. Not only is the show well written and decently acted with a good amount of action and intrigue leaving the viewers wanting more. It is a not-so-thinly veiled critique of Barack Obama and the cult of personality that surrounds him.

One of the biggest points in the series premiere is made by the priest, Father Jack Landry is to not blindly trust the “Visitors” a group of more advanced aliens seeking seemingly peaceful refuge with us and our resources in exchange for technology.

The visitors come from no where. Their leader, Anna, like all the other visitors look like really attractive human beings. She promises peace to Earth’s leaders and assures the planet she is looking to leave it better than when they arrived. Sound familiar?
Yes. Just like Barack Obama coming from the "no where" that is the United States Senate and the far away, distant galaxy that is Chicago.

"ABC Series ‘V’: Invading, Fascist Lizards Arrive With ‘Universal Health Care’ and ‘Message of Hope’ –ABC Network Portrays Aliens, Hell-bent on Destroying Planet Earth, as the Obama Administration"

"Obama Parable?: Brownshirt Lizards Return in ‘V’"

Today, I’m writing to comment on “V,” as I’m sure many viewers missed the parallels of the questions raised in the show regarding our own politics today.

Hollywood script-writing 101 classes tell writers, “If you want to write a good script, write what you know.” Kenneth Johnson, creator of the original “V” series and story writer of the resurrected version, apparently knows his history. For disclosure purposes, I have met him and visited his home many years ago, but don’t know really much about him other than he has a good grasp on good and evil and human, albeit lizard, nature. (Possible political jab that the Left is slimy … even though lizards are not?)
The self-professed blacklisted Christian director goes on to wonder why so many conservatives objected to the protagonist in V for Vendetta blowing up the English parliament building despite it having been "occupied by representatives of the people who later voted in Leftist oppressors." That's right, the film adaptation of an anarchist parable inspired by Alan Moore's disdain for the Thatcher administration, retooled as a post 9/11 parable about trading liberties for the promise of security was really about fighting them evil leftists.

And I saved this link from Glenn Beck's site for last: "Favorite new show for Glenn?"

KEVIN: This could have been a Glenn Beck production. If Glenn Beck wrote this script, it could not have been better.

PAT: Wow.

KEVIN: It was really amazing.

STU: I'm surprised that I mean, there's got to be some part of them that knows that there's going to be a reaction. I think it's going to get people to talk. But also that there is some sort of, some sort of that general sort of angst against the government right now.


STU: Is it true reading a little bit about this online and, Kevin, you might know something about this, that one of the strategies of the visitors is to sort of implant people in different, like, levels of government and media and everything else, which is, I mean

KEVIN: This is right out of the Glenn Beck playbook.

STU: It really is.

KEVIN: Yeah. What they did was they sent, you know, a small group here a decade ago or whatever and now some are firmly entrenched in government and some are local news anchors that you recognize.

PAT: Wow.

KEVIN: And all of this stuff.

PAT: Wow.

KEVIN: So that when the rest of them come, there's already this structure as Glenn might call it or a framework.


PAT: And there's just a teeny little Glenn Beck fraction that's like, these guys are not what they seem?
Yep, just like the shows writers intended. The resistance fighters in V who have evidence that the visistors are really reptiles who kill humans are obviously supposed to be Glenn Beck.

Gee, why don't these folks cut out the middle man and conclude, like David Icke did after he watched the original '80s series, that reptilian alien "elites" really are trying to implement a one world government.
