Barack Obama’s propaganda documentary accidentally revealed a dark side of his record.
His cutthroat use of government aid to line his own pockets is sickening.
Barack Obama’s new film backfired big time when it exposed his secret crime.
One of the biggest problems in politics today are union bosses that confiscate dues from workers’ paychecks and funnel money into the campaign account of puppet politicians – most of whom reside in the Democrat Party.
In many states, workers are compelled to pay into unions and cannot opt out by law.
These mandatory dues go straight back into the pockets of the Democrats.
Unions gave Democrats $1.1 billion between 2010 and 2016.
And the unions expect favors in return for all the money that they give.
Obama just won an Oscar for American Factory, a Netflix documentary that he produced that follows the lives of GM factory workers after their factory was shut down and opened again by a Chinese businessman.
What is not mentioned in the film is that Obama’s pandering to favored unions is what caused that factory to shut down in the first place.
The Wall Street Journal wrote back when the film was released in September:
It’s a fascinating and at times moving film. What’s interesting about it, though, is that it never once alludes to the part Mr. Obama played in diminishing the ability of Moraine’s laid off workers to transfer to other GM plants. The president’s role wasn’t indirect and isn’t a matter of dispute: His administration’s bailout deal for GM included a backroom exclusive agreement with the United Auto Workers.
A quick refresher. The Obama administration’s auto bailout highly favored the UAW and its members. The GM plant in Moraine was unionized by the IUE-CWA. So—despite being one of the top GM facilities for quality, efficiency and production in the country—it was shuttered, and its employees were put at the back of the line when requesting transfers to other GM plants. Any non-UAW employees looking to transfer were forced to start as new hires, wiping clean any wages, tenure, and benefits built up during careers at other GM plants.
“American Factory” documents the UAW’s efforts to unionize the reopened auto glass factory without any mention of the same union’s direct role in the GM plant’s closure. The Dayton community was left out in the cold—thousands of jobs lost, families devastated, longtime GM workers out on the street looking for work.
The hypocrisy of this Obama-backed film is astounding. Mr. Obama fails to acknowledge his direct role in creating the hardships the Moraine workers weathered. He had nothing whatsoever to do with the plant’s reopening—that was all the work of state and local officials and community leaders.
Todd Zywicki, professor at George Mason University School of Law, found that “had the administration required the UAW to accept standard bankruptcy concessions, the government could have executed the bailout at no net cost to taxpayers.”
Obama’s auto bailout enriched the unions that donated the money right back to Democrats.
Unions were made to protect the workers, now they’re there to help fund Democrats, and it’s the workers like the ones that worked in Moraine that suffer for it.
