I reviewed the excellent Dinesh D’Souza movie 2012: Obama’s America the other day on this blog. Raking in about $26 million so far, the film is the second-highest-grossing political documentary of all time, and the sixth-highest-grossing documentary period. Word is the film will be out on DVD and pay-per-view before the election.
I came across a review of the movie from an unusual source: a man who voted for Obama in 2008 and had his eyes opened after viewing the documentary. Read his whole review here. I’ll share a few excerpts:
I had the displeasure of seeing 2016 the movie yesterday. But not in the way you may think. You would think that as a former Obama fan, it would have been a right-wing propaganda filled experience. A waste of my time. It wasn’t! …
I was quite honestly amazed at the many things I learned — right from the horse’s mouth, so to speak— from his brother, and others who knew him … The movie was very well done and very factual. It was scarier than any Friday the 13th movie I have ever seen. …
There was not a sound in the theater as the movie progressed and when it ended, people just sat there, stunned. There was not a nay-sayer or heckler in the entire group. I might have been one if them had I not been so shaken.
It really is a revealing look of who Obama is and where he and his handlers want to take our beloved country, now that the waters have been tested as to what he can get away with, what it reveals his plans for the next 4 years and beyond is, well, reprehensible. I voted for this man, I had his best wishes in my heart, but he has not returned the favor to the American people. In fact, he seems completely unaware of owing Americans anything, blacks, whites, Hispanics — they are merely a means to an end: a vote to further his agenda would end our America, the way we have known it.
No matter your political leanings, if you love America, you owe it to yourself to see the movie.
