Dinesh D'Souza's 'America' Trailer Released (Video)
The Hollywood Reporter ^ | 26 Jan 2014 | Paul Bond

Posted on 01/26/2014 4:45:54 PM PST by mandaladon

The conservative behind "2016: Obama's America" is under indictment for campaign finance violations but his next doc will open on schedule on July 4, filmmakers say.

The filmmakers behind Dinesh D'Souza's upcoming doc have vowed to press on while their star defends himself after his indictment on federal charges that he violated campaign finance laws in 2012. On Sunday, they released a trailer for the movie, America, that is set for release on July 4. OUR EDITOR RECOMMENDS

'2016: Obama's America' Filmmaker Claims 'Libel' Over Accusations of Marital Infidelity

Oscar-Winning Producer of 'The Godfather Part II' Joins Dinesh D'Souza's Next Film

Dinesh D'Souza Released on $500,000 Bond America is the follow-up to the surprise hit 2016: Obama's America, which earned $33 million in 2012 and became the second most popular political documentary in history, behind Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11, which earned $119 million in 2004. In America, D'Souza -- who wrote and produced the film -- makes the claim that 1960s radical leftism is more or less indistinguishable from current mainstream liberalism, a doctrine that he says preaches the United States is the product of "stealing and plunder" from Native Americans, Mexicans and African-American slaves. "I want to take this progressive, leftist critique head on," D'Souza says in the trailer. The movie will include re-creations of some of the major events in American history. America is directed by John Sullivan and co-produced by Gray Frederickson, who won an Oscar for producing The Godfather Part II, and Gerald Molen, who won an Oscar for Schindler's List. D'Souza and Sullivan co-directed 2016: Obama's America.

Molen says the charge against D'Souza could be an act of political retribution for 2016, a critical look at President Barack Obama, or an effort to stymie his next film, which is due four months before midterm elections...................No doubt about it.

D’Souza also interviewed Obama’s brother who was so poor he lived in a hut. I’m sure that annoyed Obots in govt and they wanted payback.

Didn’t he also give Obamas brother some money to pay for some medical treatment?

Right before Obama appointed the new US Attorney that is bringing the charges?

Put the trailor on a thread of its own in activism??
Include a question whether its the reason for the arrest and 500,000 bail!

If we all spread it thru FR email and FB the arrest will be used to move the film forward

My thoughts exactly.

I would think also that with an enormous amount of publicity, it might be difficult for the government to continue to selectively prosecute/persecute conservative donors. When it’s just some poor schmuck in Podunk that they go after, no one notices (even if he happens to be a local Republican mover and shaker), but when they go after someone like this with national prominence, that is going to be noticed.

Sick that we live in a nation where the ruling party can use the power of government to harass and destroy their political enemies.

Might as well live in a totalitarian dictatorship where the “law” is used merely to uphold the power of the rulers.

Dinesh D’Souza is an American treasure, and we must do all we can do to support him!

Beautifully clear. Fits my take on the topic.

He didn't even have to say the word, "treason" for it to be obvious.

But how many average people on the street know who D’Souza is?

Don’t get me wrong, I liked 2016, and certainly plan to see America, if it plays near me.
Since this “income inequality” foolishness seems to be the centerpiece of the left’s platform now, and this film challenges the reasoning behind it, this is probably why they are going after him so hard.

He still should have known better, though. I’m talking about the campaign donations, now.

Be sure to put your e-mail address on that site to get a reminder to watch the Ayers-D’Souza debate on Jan. 30.

That is something I would not miss for the anything.

You’ll find multiple copies of Moore’s “documentaries” at your local library. Schools use his propaganda to, well, propagandize. How many D’Souza vids will your library have? How many schools will show the other side to our children?

From viewing that trailer I can see why 0bama would want to discredit D’souza and why he would want to do it now.

The free advertising the movie will get from all this could be astounding. Goes to show just how dim-witted Holder’s DOJ is.

Our dentist is the brother of Gerald Molen. He said Molen used to produce for Steven Spielberg, but left him when he saw Spielberg was going way far left.

Looking forward to seeing this documentary.
