No doubt that that paranoid right wing pseudo-documenatry 2016: Obama's America has been a huge success at the box office grossiing some $30 million to date.
Last month Courtney covered the film (HERE) and we got a ton of comments - especially from hard core fans of the fans saying how much they loved it and that people stood up and applauded at the end of the film. No doubt the same type of people who stand up and applaud at cross burnings.
In reality 2016 is nothing more than a modern day new version of the infamous 1962 TV special Red Nightmare starring Jack Webb (of Dragnet fame) which painted a nightmare of a future America, which after a takeover by the then communist Soviet Union, had become a grim, opressive totalitarian hell hole
But let's be totally honest here. Do you really think that if Obama were say a white guy named O'Bama, who could trace his family to County Cork, would such a documentary exist in the first place? Yeah I don't think so either.
But hey, just don't go by me. The film, directed by right wing coversative pundit and lacky Dinesh D'Souza, based on his book The Roots of Obama's Rage, says that the President an angry man, an anti-American "Third World upstart" filled with anti-colonialist rage taught to him by his father. You know the one he only met once in his entire life.
Entertanment Weekly magazine likened the film to "a Republican Southern strategy, which contends that the GOP attempts to win elections by appealing to the racist sentiments in America".
But however the producer of the film, Gerald Molen, who produced such Steven Spielberg films such as Schindlers List, Jurassic Park, and Minority Report in an interview today with the website Mediaite says that the charges that his film is racist are patently ridiculous.
He further added that, and noting that the director of the film D'Souza is non-white, Absolutely nothing contained in the film that implies racism and if I were racist, I wouldnt be aligning myself with him.
And some of my best friends are Indian.
Molen is upset that people would even think that he's a racist:
Its hard to be a racist in Hollywood (and) talk to anyone in Hollywood, and find them saying Im racist. You cant find anyone who will say it. There is not a racist bone in my body....Because we ask questions, were racist? That shows me that those critics operate from the bottom of the pit.
Like I say folks you can't make this stuff up. It writes itself
But why doesn't Molen like Obama? According to him: Theres just so much secrecy with Obama. Why wont he release his school grades? Why cant we have some insight into his academic prowess? Whether he wrote any great papers? Why doesnt the media plead with this guy they have so much respect for to have him open up?
Or in other words translated: "If he wins again than black people will take over the country, start producing films with Spielberg, move into my house and have sex with my wife and daughter while blasting rap music all the time out of their cars."
But don't be too hard on Molen. He clearly sees himself as a patriot . Were losing a lot of the personal individualism in this country. We see more of a nanny state now: its slowly becoming a society of makers and takers.
Hey isn't that EXACTLY the same thing Romney was secretly recorded saying at the $50,000 a plate dinner party the other day? Talk about birds of a feather
I guess all this means that Molen will never hire me to work or any of his films. Like as if that ever was going to happen.
Sometimes, the jokes just write themselves.
I wonder how “Sergio” feels about Chick Fil-A?
You don't have to donate money to the Romney campaign to make a difference. (You should donate money to FreeRepublic.)
I've made 1600 phone calls from home to New Hampshire in the last six days using the system set up by the campaign. Even 100 calls will make a difference. Who will join me?
"Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal".--James (Jim) Cone,
African American Religious Thought: An Anthology (Paperback)
by Cornel West (Editor), Eddie S. Glaude Jr. (Editor)
SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"
WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.
HANNITY: But I'm a reverend
WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?
Malik Zulu Shabazz, chairman of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP):
"We believe in a Black first philosophy and a Black Liberation Theology."
Man that race card sure is getting tattered from over use!
How the hell did you even come across this piece of juvenile pap?
It’s all in the keywords.
Best line : “ Because we ask questions, were racist? That shows me that those critics operate from the bottom of the pit.
Clearly, the author of this screed was a juvenile, in intellect if not in years. Such childish hyperbole can only prompt adults to stop reading.
As for the Red Nightmare, it was eeriely accurate, except for the timeline.
We are well into the the nasty phase now, 50 years later.
For 50 years, saner, more adult opposition kept the juveniles at bay.
Alas, eventually the idiocracy began to succeed...
