Yesterday, I went to go see 2016: Obama's America. I know, big surprise, right? 25% of the movies I've seen in theaters this year have been politically based. I think if there is anyone who is confused as to what Obama has been doing for the past 3 1/2 years, or knows he's bad but doesn't quite know why, or is just on the fence about this Romney guy (who I am finally excited about, thanks to this speech) than this is the movie for you!
It is no secret that I have been a fan of Dinesh D'Souza, who produced and wrote this movie based on two of his books, for years. His book, Letters to a Young Conservative, is one of the two that got me into politics to begin with. He is kind of like my political father, in a way. So of COURSE I am going to see this movie. D'Souza is a class act. The amount of scrutiny and criticism he has faced because of this film has been over the top. I mean seriously, D'Souza is an Indian immigrant and is THE SAME COLOR AS OBAMA. He is not racist. Sheesh. In fact, D'Souza even relays how much he relates to Obama at the beginning of the film, from their birth year, to their college graduations, to their marriage years. If anyone should be a Barack Obama supporter, it should be D'Souza.
But he isn't so, you know, RAAAAAAAAAAAAACIST. And stuff.
D'Souza sheds light on the ideology behind some of the seemingly crazy things Obama has done -- like returning the bust of Winston Churchill to England. These actions are not simply ignorance of the American political system, but anti-colonialism. Obama relates to his father's roots in Kenya. D'Souza even went to Kenya to interview Obama's half brother George, who has written a book, and revealed that George strongly disagrees Obama Sr.'s & Obama Jr.'s anti-colonialism.
Mind blowing stuff, really.
