Skip to comments.Dinesh D'Souza's 'America' Will Have Some Conservatives Yearning For Michael Moore's
Posted on 07/21/2014 5:24:55 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Back in 2010, and amid some of the worst economic times of Barack Obamas failed presidency, I lunched with an entrepreneur whose signage business was booming both domestically and globally. I asked this person how he thrived despite all the political barriers to growth, and he said Im way too smart for Obama, and Ill always work around him.
The entrepreneurs confident response came to mind as I watched Dinesh DSouzas latest documentary, America: Imagine the World Without Her. DSouza properly loves the U.S., as does this writer, but his documentaries (the other was 2016: Obamas America, released to much fanfare in 2012) pander to the desire among some in the conservative movement to play hapless victim to the all-powerful Barack.
To believe DSouza and others who are helping define this ascendant strain of victim conservatism, a man they deem aloof, unfocused and not terribly competent has somehow managed in six short years to transform a nation once defined by staggering individual initiative and entrepreneurial abundance into a land of indolent takers. Victimhood has a new red-state address, and Obama must be flattered to know that for being Barack, hes sapped the vitality of the most productive people on earth. All of this would be scary if DSouzas documentary were at all grounded in reality.

We still couldn’t have a president like Obama if we didn’t have the electorate to put him there.
Seeds turn into forests.
But we are “helpless” as long as congress lets bartack and holder have their way with pens and papers.
I can see why Steve Forbes sold the Forbes magazine.
This article is total crap.
This article is a pile of horse manure. I’ve been thinking for quite a while that too many hired hacks employed by Forbes have gone over to the dark side in their commentary and editorials. One too many articles with an outright Dem slant, even though business oriented. This is one of those articles.
Summary: a disguised attempt to portray D’Souza as being wrong about his facts in his films, that Obama inherited Bush’s problems, and that the Republicans are really the ones to blame. There saved you 15 mins of reading...
> I’m chewing through Dsouzas book America.
it’s a compelling read.
The books are always better than the movie. He made some good points in the movie, particularly in reference to slavery.
Yeah, remember Nina no brains Easton .big time Forbes “economic” reporter. Yeah, right ..she’s a total maroon.
This writer is laughably wrong. If pointing out that Obama is killing America is adopting the victim mentality what are we left to say/feel as he destroys our country and makes us fund it? This guy is a moron.
Uh huh. The old trick of finding one guy at the top to “prove” to the rest of us how easy it is.
We couldn't have a president like Obama if we did not have the institutionalized voter fraud that put him there.
Dinesh dSouza is telling the unvarnished truth about our current plight and what has brought it about. If he succeeds and our country is saved, we will surely establish a real press that tells whats actually going on in our country, and publications like Forbes Magazine will disappear. Thats the basis for this rant.
Obama would be nearly powerless if it weren’t for decades of leftists building up white guilt and political correctness to the level that it is anathema to voice any criticism of black culture or a black person.
Obama didn’t make the movement; the movement made Obama.
