Strawman: "Obama's America 2016"-Kool Aid Drinkers Need Not Attend
9 months, 3 weeks ago
I rarely suggest a person NOT do something, but I’m going to make an exception here. If you are a supporter of Barack Obama, do not pay your hard earned dollar to see “Obama’s America 2016.”
Author Dinesh D’Souza hits it out of the park with this film—climbs back into the stands—grabs up the same ball and hits it out of the park—again. And he does this without using a single partisan vowel or consonant.
D’Souza is an Indian American conservative political commentator, public intellectual and author who is currently the President of The King's College in New York City. He’s authored a number of books, most recently, “The Roots of Obama’s Rage”, upon which Obama’s America 2016 is based. The movie does a wonderful job of outlining not only Obama’s life, but that of D’Souza—giving the viewer a solid understanding of who both men are, and why they believe what they do.
I entered the theatre thinking I had a pretty good handle on who Mr. Obama was and what his thought process consisted of, but left with a few more nuggets that I walked in with.
One of those was the environment in which both men were reared. D’Souza was born and raised in India and lived in a neighborhood where clean water and electricity were considered luxuries. Obama’s time spent in Indonesia, where he went by the name of Barry Soreto, was much the same environment.
The other, it was pointed out, has to do with “the rich”. While it seems that Mr. Obama is directing his disgust with the 1 percenters, he’s actually making reference to most all those living in America, in that, even the poorest here would be considered rich in most all other third world countries.
Obama’s America 2016 provides the viewer a different look at America’s 44th President and fully explains where and why our country is in the predicament it is today. And frankly--- it will scare the hell out of you.
So, again, if you’re on the fence, won’t read, won't listen to, or havent' been paying attention to that which is happening all around you—and are still deciding who to vote for in November—you owe it to yourself to look into Obama’s America 2016.
However, if you have the bumper sticker, the t-shirt and your drawers still get moist at the sound of his voice, don’t bother. You’re too far gone.
Obama’s America 2016 will change the minds of a few of those who will see it on the big screen. But the real damage will be done should it be released on DVD prior to November 6th—which, for the good of the country—I hope that it will.
Obama’s America 2016 will be shown at Hannibal’s B&B Cinemas, Friday, August 31st.
