    Default Obama 2016 ? WTH

    Galvanizing conservatives Dinesh D’Souza and John Sullivan’s documentary 2016: Obama's America grossed a stellar $6.3 million as it expanded nationwide over the weekend, beating a trio of three new films.
    The anti-Barack Obama film, opening last month in only a few theaters, now boasts a domestic cume of $9.2 million, the top gross of the year for a documentary (excluding nature films). Bully was the previous crownholder with $3.5 million.
    Among other records, Obama's America is now the top conservative documentary of all time, beating out Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed ($7.7 million).
    Obama's America -- promoted heavily on talk radio and distributed by Rocky Mountain Pictures -- timed its nationwide expansion to the Republican National Convention, which gets underway this week in Tampa, Fla.


    I cannot recall a campaign using so many smear tactics . This is propaganda usage at it's highest (or lowest )
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    This review of the film was in our local paper today. I cut and pasted below some of the things in the film. Nah, it's not designed to make people afraid of a black revolutionary!

    "The movie details conservative scholar Dinesh D'Souza's theories on how Obama's world view is based on the anti-colonialism views of his Kenyan father. D'Souza builds a film on exploring Obama's past, tying together Obama's exposure to Communists, socialists and radicals in his youth and early adult life.

    The final 12 minutes are dedicated to D'Souza's theories on how a second Obama term would turn out. He contends that Obama's anti-colonialism mindset makes him anti-American and that he would seek to sharply raise taxes, intentionally cripple the economy through skyrocketing debt and seek to put America on more even standing with the Third World and Muslim nations. In one scene, he shows a future United States of Islam, tying nations from Morocco to Iran together while menacing, snaking thorns encircles the region on screen.

    D'Souza has published two books about Obama which follow the same type of storyline. Those books have been controversial, drawing praise from the conservative side from people like Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich, but also criticism from George Will and others."
