In July Terry wrote about the movie, “2016: Obama’s America” by Dinesh D’Souza. It is based on his book, The Roots of Obama’s Rage. As of Sunday afternoon (4:00 pm Pacific), the documentary ranked no. 8 in ticket sales, with $6.2 million in sales.
We went and saw the movie Sunday night. I really wasn’t expecting to learn anything new about Obama. After all, I had done my homework in 2008. I knew about Obama’s radical stance on late-term abortion, his family abandonment issues (and his polygamist father who drank too much), his communists ties, his anti-American buddies, and his stance on the Second Amendment, as well as his “Chicago” way of politics.
Any one who had done their homework and had access to the Internet could have determined what Skippy was all about. Apparently, the sheeple just didn’t care.
So did I learn anything new in this movie? Not really…
D’Souza does a good job outlining what the media refused to tell you about Obama. He also explores the relationship Obama had with his mother and the absentee father he never had. How was Obama influenced so greatly by this non-existent father? His mother, Ann Dunham, kept positive images alive of Obama’s father, she basically “airbrushed” his father. Obama, so disappointed in his father, felt the need to prove to himself, and those around him, that he would never be a disappointment.
The movie also explores Obama’s “founding fathers” – Frank Marshall Davis, Bill Ayers, Edward Said, Roberto Unger, and Reverend Wright. Characters we all knew of – yet the SRM refused to report on them.
The movie ended on a depressing note: outlining what 2016 might be like with another four years of Obama. Israel in great danger (as if they aren’t already), the “United States of Islam”, and more massive debt.
Lastly, during the Nuclear Summit in Seoul in 2012, Obama agreed to decrease our nuclear warheads from approximately 5,000 to 1,500, and ultimately 300 warheads. This would put the USA in much lesser power than Russia, China, and possibly some Middle Eastern countries.
Positive note: There were many “silver-haired” folks in the theatre. And some applause at the end of the movie! I hope the November election is just as positive.
