America: Imagine the World Without Her (Review)
MSMB ^ | August 1, 2014 | Rob W. Case

Imagine, if you will, George Washington leading troops into battle against the British, only to be hit by a sniper, killed, and leaving his soldiers without direction, and nowhere else to go but back into the hands of the British. There would be no America, no symbols and monuments (like Mount Rushmore, the Lincoln Memorial, the Statue of Liberty, and so forth), and thus nothing to inspire future generations to carry forth the progress of Liberty, equality, and justice for all. That said, imagine if the very spirit, convictions, and principles that led to struggle, bloodshed, and sacrifice, which eventually amounted to a standard of living, and thus a standard of government to guarantee every individual residing in this country the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness were vanquished. Should that spirit have been vanquished early on, the very victories that have defined our greatness as a country may not have ever happened if that scenario involving George Washington would have taken place. That story, no doubt, would have yielded an entirely different outcome.

From Dinesh D’Souza, and Gerald R. Molen comes a fresh and unique look at America, its history, its spirit, and what sets it apart from any and every other nation before it. That said, without America’s distinct qualities, its internal battles, and individuals yearning for a life that is better than what society and the culture confined people to, the world today would not know freedom from slavery from a scale it knows today, equality on a variety of levels, and the value of possessing the ability to write one’s success and future from their own creativity, skill, and abilities, rather than rely on a Kingdom to be submissive to, without (for most people anyway) a standard of living higher than “peasant.”

Even though this movie has been out for a while now, it is still being reviewed by many left wing pundits in the media, no doubt, to try to circumvent any hopes of potential success. What this review intends to do, is bring it down to earth on a level for which the spirit of the film (and thus, the spirit of America) rings central. While pundits would prefer to execute the Alinsky tactic of "Picking the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it,” to turn people off from seeing it, this film stands solely on a reasonable plane, and effectively demonstrates why so many want the success of this film to be circumvented. It's a fascinating dynamic to take notice of.

Do you think the Left's attacks of D'souza's Americaare a use of the Alinsky Method to destroy his case rather than from the strength of their argument? If you do, I would strongly agree. Most of the negative reviews give a blanket smear of the movie without going into specifics by matching D'souza's facts with argument. The reviewers are like a kid saying, "Your mom's cooking tastes like crap." It speaks of the adolescent mentality that is eating up the Left's propaganda.

They may not have exactly done it with deliberate consciousness, but how they describe the film reflects their partisan biases and prejudices against it, meshed with their emotional reaction to the movie (in the reviews I read, at least). And so, when many of these critics were writing their articles, they would, “freeze it” and “polarize it” as if it is a “Conservative” movie (which they would go out of their way to emphasize), made by the guy who did the “Anti-Obama” documentary. Those buzzwords, if you will, do enough to turn off the interests of partisans, and even mainstream folks who are not really into politics, but have a negative view of Conservatives in general. In addition, if people are told that it is a “right wing movie,” many will simply take them at their word. But they will lose out on what the film really is, and I don’t believe that this movie should be classified as a “right wing” movie because it simply SHOWS the audience a bigger dynamic at work for them to contemplate. That’s it.

This is, by no means, a partisan movie. It is a movie that brings to light the American story that is overshadowed by the alternate story. It also uncovers to exposure, the hidden foundations for the type of Government we have now, and leaves us with a clear decision to make.
