The brilliance of 2016: Obamas America is not so much in the endless array of immutable details, it resides in the levelheaded delivery and common sense approach of Dinesh DSouzas premise: to psychologically and historically link the anti-American influences of Barack Obamas past, to his political ideology of the present. To simply condemn Obama as a rogue Communist or Socialist, even amidst an avalanche of incriminating evidence, would appear as nothing more than Right Wing propaganda; no matter how much irrefutable proof was presented, those Americans he intended to reach, regardless of age, class or party affiliation, would immediately turn a deaf ear and dismiss its credibility. The fact DSouza a once impoverished immigrant who embraced the American dream and doesnt harbor our Presidents anti-colonialist views uses a number of excerpts, quotes, and interviews that show Obama in a respectable light not just those tidbits plucked solely to mold a one-dimensional story speaks to his works integrity.
Because Obama has furthered his career by embodying the ever present strife of Americas racial divide, deflecting real criticism by casting a light of disparagement upon the messenger, he has mastered the art of distracting the masses with glittering generalities, blatant distortions, and age-old stereotypes. It is within this newfound context, operating beneath the liberal lens of media scrutiny, DSouza masterfully weaves the intricate details of Barack Obamas life his conflicted youth, education, leftist mentors, the dreams/beliefs of his father, and the insatiable need for reconciling the two into a scholarly tapestry that leaves you both cold with fear and heated with bewilderment at Americas, if not the worlds, ignorance. For beneath this pensive and cerebral stream of consciousness, an inescapable train of totality, any reasonable, open minded viewer is left with but one indelible question: why?
Why wasnt Barack Hussein Obamas past, radical associates and overriding ideology fully vetted in 2008? Why has the media abandoned its patriotic duty of questioning the status quo, holding Obama accountable, to protect our citizens and fabled republic? Why did America vote for someone who stands in stark contrast to the tried and true ideals of our forefathers? And why would we grant this man another four years to dismantle our economic markets, redistribute wealth and diminish our role in an ever increasingly hostile world? If you believe We the People deserve the answer to these questions, then Dinesh DSouza wants to speak with you!
My wife and I watched the movie and I read the book. Both were masterfully done and we all owe Dinesh D’Souza our gratitude. He has done his adopted country a great service by exposing Obama using Obama’s own words.
I saw this movie last night. There were 16 people in my showing at 6:00 pm. More, I believe than were in the other movies in the multiplex. I was expecting talk radio level agitprop, but it was done really well. It connected on the personal, emotional and intellectual levels, as well as the political.
