2016: Obama’s America

Dinesh D’Souza’s 2016: Obama’s AmericaI: The Five Most Hilarious Lowlights

As D'Souza, in voiceover, describes debating Jesse Jackson on the topic of whether this is a racist country, we're treated to the sight of a hunky young black man sauntering up to a stool in the kind of neighborhood bar you might see in a Keith Urban video. He sits and smiles; the two twentysomething white guys on either side of him eye him, then each other, and then march off without a word.

The black man slumps, sadly.

D'Souza, meanwhile, is now talking about how his own hands are the same color as Jesse Jackson's, and just as you're wondering what the hell that is supposed to mean, those two white guys are back, and guess what? They weren't storming away out of hatred for the black guy they were storming away to surprise him with a goddamn birthday cake. Suddenly every person in the bar, all white, is clapping and cheering, and the black guy a little sheepish at first soon is beaming with them, having learned the lesson that D'Souza wants to share with everyone who has ever made the mistake of thinking he or she has been on the receiving end of racial prejudice: White people love Dinesh D'Souza, and they would love you, too, if you would just sit there quietly and let them.

Written and directed by Dinesh D'Souza and John Sullivan. Starring Dinesh D'Souza, Paul Vitz, Shelby Steele, George Obama, and Alice Dewey.

Did the author, Alan, even see the movie? He is rewriting it with his made up version for his column. Perhaps his version for his blind liberal readers, or perhaps he is a blinded liberal himself.

I can tell by right away by this article, nothing more than the lies of this Alan writer. Another clear example of the left wing media that tries to distort the truth. Excellent documentary that shows why Obama hates America so much. No wonder it has become the no 1 money maker documentary ever recorded. There another one coming soon called America's History, which tells why our country is exceptional instead of the propaganda that they indoctrinate our children in school today, to create more haters.

This review, as amusing as it is, doesn't even touch on the central absurdity of the film.  That is, that somehow we should be very very scared of someone who holds (cue ominous bass drum music) anti-British "anti-colonialist" attitudes.   That the tea partiers who eat this stuff up don't realize that they are roundly condemning George Washington, Patrick Henry, James Madison, Thomas Paine and the very formation of the country they claim to love is... either really funny or just profoundly sad. 

 

What are they TEACHING in these right wing home schooling madrassas these days anyway?  Was the American revolution just some metaphor for a giant group hug the colonists had with King George when the colonies were peacefully transformed into some sovereign corporate spinoff?  Were there really no shots fired at Lexington Common?  I never knew.  The impossible things some folks believe, even before breakfast!

Great film. Very insightful and well told. Tells a lot of facts not usually disclosed by the corporate

media. Well worth the price of admission. Could possibly be upsetting to some Obama Zombies.

This author has a lot of writing talent.  Unfortunately that talent is mixed with excessive amounts of hatred, spite, and malice. It permeates the article and makes his opinion inherently incredible.

Nothing talented about untruthful journalism.
