This past weekend, my husband and I took our 12-year-old son to a movie. We didn’t go to Batman or Paranorman. We went to 2016: Obama’s America. In an hour and 29 minutes, I learned more than I have in four years of watching the news.
The filmmaker, Dinesh D’Souza, has created an intelligently developed, researched, and written documentary that I believe–for the first time–provides real insight into what drives our President. This isn’t more birth certificate brouhaha. This is thought-provoking journalism that gives context to what is behind the President’s ideology. As in the case of every person, our past motivates our actions. This is true with the POTUS. His past and his family history—both real and what was created for him by his mother—has motivated many of the inconceivable things Obama has done as president.
Obama has a dream. It was handed down from his father. In much of the movie, the president’s own words and voice share that dream with us. It is a dream far different from the American dream shared by most Americans. It certainly isn’t the “American Dream.” It is critical that we understand the differences in those two dreams so we can make an intelligent and informed decision in November.
My Republican friends–skip Batman and the like and go see this movie. My Democratic friends, I hope you’ll take time to see this movie. If nothing else, you’ll finally understand why Obama holds positions that confuse and befuddle even you.
The last lines of the movie remind us that in 2008 we didn’t really know this man who now holds the most powerful office in the world. Now we do.
Please see this movie. Please take your teenagers to it. We have no prayer of raising children untainted by the political correctness and liberal ideology hurled at them from all sides if we don’t teach our children conservative values and have open and candid discussions with them about what is happening in our country. Protecting them from what is going on around them will only make them uncertain and confused.
