I occasionally review movies and when Dinesh D’Souza came out with America: Imagine the World Without Her (2014), I did a review on IMDB (Internet Movie Database). The film should be reviewed objectively in schools, at least to present a view other than how our country needs to be razed and started anew. Of course, this will never happen unless our Public Education program of Leftist indoctrination is smashed and burned and placed in the ash heap of history.
Looking back 6 years later, our Public schools have not changed. They have even doubled down with their Hate America Campaign and plan on implementing the 1619 project. PTAs, where are you? Even scarier is that many of the kids growing up in 2014 when this movie came out are about to vote in November.
Here is the review……
OK – reading some of the negative reviews here made me write a counter attack, because that is what a reasonable person does who does not despise their country. The negative comments from several reviewers (which is pretty hard to fathom for any documentary) are politically motivated, and appear to come from a deep seated Hatred of America which you can viscerally feel from their words. This requires rebuttal.
My God, did these people even see the movie? My local paper – the AJC – has a “D” rating (nearly the lowest rating of 20+ movies reviewed for the July 4 weekend) yet had absolutely nothing to say that disputes anything presented in the film. They just have to fight their anti-US narrative to the death. And, I am tired of having to apologize to these people on the Left when I say they are not Patriotic – well, this film is (using Obama’s words) really a line in the sand – if you hate this movie you cannot be a Patriot. End of argument, end of story.
The movie has its technical issues, but the overall GOOD message about our country strikes deeply at the heart of the Left’s New History of America. Their New History has been the basis of our kid’s curriculum since the 1960s and continues unabated. Some here refer to D’Souzas views as “revisionist”, a completely backwards take on our true historical past which is INFINITELY better and more Moral than ANY OTHER CIVILIZATION IN HISTORY. That is the primary and very clear message of the movie.
As Dinesh so clearly shows, we are the only Nation whose wealth was not, nor ever has been, from the spoils of Conquest that was the norm of human history for thousands of years. Wealth is created internally and comes directly to people that earn it. American wealth is from Liberty granted to us by our Constitution – Liberty from Tyrannical Govt rule (think IRS Gestapo) – and the entrepreneurship of people that receive money VOLUNTARILY for goods and services. This is the great new “idea” of America that Bono speaks of in the film, in a very moving speech. No reviewer here, or any from the political Left, can argue against this source of greatness and why Mexican Americans do not cross to the South. The documentary also lays out a very strong case that the Left’s brainwashing come from public education and the re- writing of our history to give successful people a sense of shame – and a sense of entitlement by the folks that either can’t make it or won’t make it.
It is really sad what has been done to young minds for the promotion of the Atheist state of Saul Alinsky, another major topic of the film. You have to see the movie to understand what has been going on and why so many have come to despise this country. Since it is so hard to argue for a world without America (and American Capitalism), the only possible explanation for being against America appears to arise from jealousy – jealousy from individuals or particular groups that just can’t cut it – but still (in Biblical terms) covet all the stuff. So they want to transform Govt into Tyranny on their behalf so they can just take wealth from the folks that have made it. And the Left claims America herself is a thief?? Please.
I truly hope that this film can be the start of a new era in historically accurate education in American history – tho it may be too late. Yes, you CAN make it with work, perseverance and education. Dnesh proves beyond doubt there is no better place in the world that you want to be and that the good ‘Old USA needs no remaking from a Leftist President.
As you may recall, shortly after the movie was released, Obama’s administration used it’s power to destroy the man who made the movie about the Goodness of America and was critical about President Obama (free speech anyone?). Obama’s people found out that Dinesh donated money beyond the arbitrary legal limits to a political friend. If anybody does that sort of thing, which probably happens every day by unsuspecting people, they may get a small fine and be charged with a misdemeanor offence. Obama wanted him in jail, and that is where he went for 8 months (actually a halfway house, but was locked down, so that’s jail). The Judge at his trial (Richard Berman) didn’t seem to think the Government went after him for political reasons.
But, the unflappable Dinesh had the last laugh on the Hate filled community organizer Barack Hussein Obama: https://www.investors.com/politics/commentary/conservative-filmmaker-released-from-his-sentence/
I am working on a new documentary – Obama: Imagine the World Without Him. I have no news on the release date.
