You won’t believe how egregiously awful Dinesh D’Souza’s America is. Or maybe you will – the walking pustule known as D’Souza has basically resurrected the 2012 Republican Convention in movie form: the golden hued montages of cornfields and purple mountains majesty, the “You didn’t build that” counter-testimonials from minority entrepeneurs, even Clint Eastwood arguing with an empty chair is back – this whole movie is a massive argument against a strawman.
America: Imagine the World Without Her, the posters say. At the beginning of the movie, the American revolutionaries, some of whom seem to be sporting buzzcuts, are attacking the British. George Washington rides into battle clutching the Declaration of Independence, the way one does, when he is felled by a sniper’s bullet. Suddenly the Statue of Liberty crumbles. Here it comes: a counterfactual movie about what the world would be like if the United States had remained a British colony.
The next moment a hideous, grinding speech, as of some monstrous machine running without oil, burst from the big telescreen at the end of the room. It was a noise that set one’s teeth on edge and bristled the hair at the back of one’s neck. The Hate had started.
Suck it, Libtard! “Imagine the World Without Her” was just a marketing line, that’s not really what this movie is about. It’s about the recent decline of American patriotism due to something called The Zinn Critique.
America had once been a happy land of cornfields and forests. No one ever criticized foreign policy or debated slavery. But then noted Communist Howard Zinn wrote “A People’s History of the United States” and changed all that.
There were also whispered stories of a terrible book, a compendium of all the heresies, of which Goldstein was the author and which circulated clandestinely here and there. It was a book without a title. People referred to it, if at all, simply as THE BOOK.
Zinn’s “A People’s History” was apparently the first book in American history to foster the totally untrue myths that the United States was founded on the graves of Native Americans, and built with the sweat and blood of slaves. The publication of this book was the single event that caused red-blooded Americans to hate their own country. Furthermore, the Zinn Critique lies and tells us that American foreign policy has occasionally acted in ways detrimental to the interests of other sovereign countries. Disgraced scumbag Dinesh D’Souza is having none of that.
Take the charge of genocide against the Native Americans. Did you know that Columbus arrived in the New World centuries before the United States was even founded? And that he never set foot in North America proper? QED, libtard, the defendant is declared not guilty of genocide. Next!
Slavery: Did you know that there were white guys called “indentured servants” who had it almost as bad as slaves? And there were black slave-owners? Nailed ya, hippie! Case closed!
Imperialism: Did you know we invaded Iraq and didn’t steal their oil? Take that Noam Chomsky, your critique of American Imperialism has been refuted!
And so it goes, as philanderer/campaign fraudster Dinesh D’Souza pretends his anecdata adds up to a compelling argument, and not the sub-Youtube comment trolling that it actually is.
But colostomy bag D’Souza isn’t done yet. It’s too difficult to tie Jewish bogeyman Zinn to Obama, so there’s a section on another Jewish bogeyman called Saul Alinsky.
Always there were fresh dupes waiting to be seduced by him. A day never passed when spies and saboteurs acting under his directions were not unmasked by the Thought Police. He was the commander of a vast shadowy army, an underground network of conspirators dedicated to the overthrow of the State.
Alinsky also wrote a BOOK, this one called Rules for Radicals. Apparently it was popular in the Sixties, and resurrected 40 years later for use against Obama. Alinsky was a community organizer from Chicago, like SOMEONE ELSE YOU MAY HAVE HEARD OF, and human herpes sore D’Souza has some fun with filmed re-enactments of clandestine coffee shop meetings with Alinsky and a young woman named Hilary Rodham. Game, set, match, Dimocrats: your next presidential candidate met with Satan himself to plan the revolution.
And on it goes, until finally the moment arrives that makes the whole thing worthwhile: a shot of D’Souza in handcuffs. He clearly implies it was the dictatorial Nixonian tactics of Obama that put him there, and not his deliberate campaign finance fraud, but after two hours of this bullshit it was a welcome sight. Hopefully the powers that be will keep him locked up long enough to keep him from perpetrating another movie this awful on our country.
