1 watching you tiny alien kittens are  Fri, Nov 2, 2012 11:33:42pm

No it isn't satire, which is unfortunate.

He started out with a preconceived notion of what the poem was about as supplied to him by Jim O'Hagan and set out to show its correctness. Using Obama's background and childhood he has soon built himself an allegorical construct to support his theory. He set out to show that this poem is about Palestinians driving the Jews into the sea rather than keeping an open mind as to its possible meanings. That is why he is entirely wrong...

Any fool should be able to discern that the poem is in fact a metaphor for the housing pricing crash in 2008 (which Obama accurately foresaw). The underwater caverns filled with apes of course refers to the large number of homes now "underwater" in value on the market. While the apes are the people fooled into signing mortgages they could not afford, hence the howling and bearing of fangs. The figs, which are green, are an allegory for the dollar, which is also green. Therefore stepping on the figs and making them crunch and also tumbling into the rushing water is merely symbolism for the crash of the dollar value of housing and the rushing wave of foreclosures that followed.

I'm surprised that this isn't as obvious to him as it is to me...

re: #1 Tiny Alien Kitties are Watching You

Really? I thought that the poem was about this website. The figs (green, like you said) are little green footballs. The fact that the apes (who represent the readers) both eat and defile (by stepping on) the figs represents the practices of upvoting or downvoting an article. The water refers to the links which are also blue. To "tumble in the rushing water" means to spend too much time reading articles and sources.

The only thing this piece tells me it is time to replace the editors at American Thinker

I think Cashill is one of Whirled Nuts Daily's Klan of Kookspiracy Kontributors.

Awesome, dude. Freaking brilliant analysis. you may pick up your doctorate of internet satire from the girl at the counter.

Oh yeah, Jack Cashill again. He writes for all the right wing kook rags. Makes a living by peddling moronic conspiracy theories to morons who believe them.
