Cultural Learnings of America, Zion Square Edition

Drunk American kids visiting Israel discuss Obama, embarrassingly.

Print Email

On Wednesday night, a few hours before President Obama was set to address the Muslim whole world from Cairo, filmmakers Max Blumenthal and Joseph Dana cruised through Jerusalem’s outdoor cafes asking drunk American kids a simple question: “What do you think of Obama coming to the region?” The responses, which featured plenty of f-bombs, ranged from the unpublishably offensive—including one from a guy who claimed to have volunteered for the Obama campaign—to the merely stupid. One girl who claimed she was a political science major failed to correctly identify Benjamin Netanyahu, but cheerfully rattled off a catalogue of conspiracy theories, including Obama-as-crypto-Muslim, Obama-as-foreign-born-citizen, and Obama-as-terrorist. “All I gotta say is, I want pussy!” exclaimed one teen, staggering slightly. “Is this gonna be on national TV or something?” asked another. We’re sure their parents are very proud.
