Audiences all over America are enjoying the phenomenon of Dinesh D’Souza’s latest homage to our great nation.
The movie is simply titled “America: Imagine a World without Her” and conservatives are lining up to get their chance to see it. Not only are they seeing it, but they’re also raving about it once they’ve seen it.
Someone once observed: “America is great because she is good; if she ever ceases to be good she will cease to be great.” Today that notion of the essential goodness of America is under attack, replaced by another story in which theft and plunder are seen as the defining features of American history—from the theft of Native American and Mexican lands and the exploitation of African labor to a contemporary foreign policy said to be based on stealing oil and a capitalist system that robs people of their “fair share”.
Our founding fathers warned us that, although the freedoms they gave us were hard fought, they could very easily be lost. America stands at a crossroads, and the way we understand our past will determine our future.America the movie takes 21st-century Americans into the future by first visiting our past.
Gerald Molen, the Academy-award winning producer of Schindler’s List,and Dinesh D’Souza, the creator of 2016: Obama’s America, invite you on a journey of discovery that will bring you face-to-face with the heroes who built America, in the times in which they lived, bled, and sacrificed in order to build a great nation: Christopher Columbus, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, and others. You’ll be there as Columbus sets foot on American soil, as bullets whiz by Washington’s head, as Douglass demands that America live up to the promises of her Founding Fathers, and as Lincoln sacrifices thousands of lives, including his own, to right a great wrong of history.
We’ll also meet their present-day critics, hear their stories, and then let you decide which America you believe in. From the team that created 2016: Obama’s America comes the story not of a man but a nation, at the crossroads of hope or disaster, whose destination will soon be decided.
Do yourself (and America) a favor – go see Dinesh D’Souza’s America and take a liberal friend with you!
