    Obama-produced film wins Oscar, producer quotes Communist manifesto in acceptance speech

    The first Netflix film produced by former President Obama and Michelle Obama‘s production company won an award on Sunday during the Oscars and, while accepting the award, the filmmakers recited Karl Marx’s Communist manifesto.

    "Working people have it harder and harder these days—and we believe that things will get better when workers of the world unite," filmmaker Julia Reichert said in her acceptance speech. Media critics were quick to pick up on her usage of the phrase, “workers of the world unite,” which has been used in communist propaganda throughout history.

    Watch their full acceptance speech below.

    The poster below is a great example of how this phrase has been used. Translation: Workers of the world, unite! "Deserter, give me your hand. You are the same kind of destroyer of the worker-farmer state as I am, the capitalist. Now you are my only hope."

    Former President Obama was quick to congratulate the filmmakers. "Congrats to Julia and Steven, the filmmakers behind American Factory, for telling such a complex, moving story about the very human consequences of wrenching economic change. Glad to see two talented and downright good people take home the Oscar for Higher Ground’s first release," he said in a tweet.

    Reaction on Twitter was pretty instantaneous.
