Finally, Dinesh D’Souza’s controversial movie, 2016: Obama’s America, made it to a nearby market!  I had to go into New York City and wade through a sea of gawking tourists in Times Square on a Saturday afternoon in order to see it.  Here’s the trailer:

The film is based off of D’Souza’s latest book, The Roots of Obama’s Rage, which tries to explain Obama’s actions through the prism of Obama’s life experiences.  Dinesh himself was an immigrant from India whose grandfather had deep anti-colonial feelings.  He was born the same year as Obama, got his undergraduate degree the same year as Obama, and even married the same year as Obama.  So, he recognized something about Obama’s odd and seemingly inconsistent governing patterns and decision-making that most American’s wouldn’t notice — an overwhelming sense of third-world anti-colonialism which Obama adopted from his father and a series of radicals who influenced the President’s life.

Controversial, yes.  But, Dinesh does a solid job tying together his thesis with Obama’s actions in office.  He makes a compelling case that if unleashed in a second term, Obama will continue to diminish and harm America.  The movie is remarkably fair as presented, with great interviews with people from Obama’s family and his father’s past.  There are a few moments where Dinesh channels his inner-Glenn Beck (and not the good Beck), but overall this is a compelling work that really makes you think about where Obama may truly want to take this country.
