Obama Movie Killing it Despite Negative Press

Dinesh D’Souza’s new film, 2016: Obama’s America, has far surpassed industry “insider” predictions (read: hopes) that the movie would tank at the box office. Aside from being the top grossing movie last weekend, D’Souza has announced that he is expanding the number of theaters showing it, from 1091 to 1600 screens. Apparently there is more interest out there in a political documentary than even the “experts” believe.

The film purports to show the “real” Obama, along the same lines as D’Souza’s books, Obama’s America and The Roots of Obama’s Rage. Anticipating where America might be if Obama gets elected to a second term, 2016: Obama’s America claims: “Love him, hate him, you don’t know him.” According to the official website for the film:

Immersed in exotic locales across four continents, best selling author Dinesh D’Souza races against time to find answers to Obama’s past and reveal where America will be in 2016. During this journey he discovers how Hope and Change became radically misunderstood, and identifies new flashpoints for hot wars in mankind’s greatest struggle. The journey moves quickly over the arc of the old colonial empires, into America’s empire of liberty, and we see the unfolding realignment of nations and the shape of the global future.

Far from giving the president little credit, as most Republicans are wont to do, D’Souza gives Obama large amounts of props. D’Souza believes that Obama is unfolding his policies and political plan exactly as he wants. Far from being inept and naïve, D’Souza believes that Obama is exacting and precise in what he wants for America, and is doing it right before our very eyes. In fact, the film uses much of Obama’s own words, straight from the audiobook version of Obama’s memoir, Dreams From My Father. It is an interesting concept to use one’s actual words against him, something that liberals are not very accustomed to doing, unless the words are taken out of context or abbreviated. I’m looking at you, Michael Moore.

While it is evident that D’Souza has done his homework and is trying to present facts in his film, this doesn’t preclude liberal critics from completely dismissing the film as a witch hunt (spoiler alert!). Reviews of 2016: Obama’s America have been positive from individual viewers, but have been almost unanimously negative from paid critics. This should come as no surprise, since the majority of film critics are nothing but government shills working for the left-promoting mainstream media. The quality or factuality of a film is irrelevant, what really makes a film “good” to these reviewers is its ideology. Toeing the liberal line is what is really important, not questioning it. You can be assured that when professional film critics are universally panning a well-made film, there is a very good reason for it, and it has nothing to do with the film itself. Most of these critics probably had the majority of their “reviews” written before they even sat down in the theater.

    Like Clint said the other night, We own this country!! The government does not own this country!! We have to start thinking and acting like that or we will be lost for sure and Oboma will get all the federal agents hired that he needs and start rounding up people that do not agree with him, just like Hitler did. Now is not the time to be sitting on our asses waiting for other people to be making decisions that will decide our fate!!

  • TalofofoTom1

    the media is not covering  ANYTHING __that doesnt agree with the ADMIN of Obama and Company..Will they cover the moving vans @ Our WhiteHouse when Obama leaves??

  • WhiteFalcon

    I have seen this film and I encourage everyone to go and see it. It is mostly a biography of Ovomit that explains why he is the way he is. After seeing this presentation you can predict him, which wasn't hard to do anyway if you simply ask yourself "what would a nazi or a communist do?" Answer that question and you have predicted what ovomit will do. The film maker does it from a different perspective, however, but he comes up with the same results. Go and see this film and you will see what I mean.

    Obama does not like America because of allowing slavery and other past social injustices

    • Magnum05

      Obama doesn't like America, because he is a Communist, as well as a Muslim.

  • Anglofmrcy

    I pray for Barack Hussein Obama. That he may be touched by the Holy Spirit and his life be changed forever. That he may fully know the one true God and know that the truth and justice must prevail. I pray for his family, that they may be touched by the living God and be transformed. I pray for our Congress that they may ALL be touched by the living God and be transformed so that they may see the error of their ways and start running this country the way God intended for it to be run. And lastly, I pray for Mitt Romney and his family. I pray that God will continue to guide him on his path. May he fulfill his destiny as the next President of the United States and may He always proclaim the name of the Lord and carry out His plans for this nation and the nations around the world. In Jesus precious name! Amen

    • Magnum05

      I don't think it will do any good to pray for someone who is Anti-God. This guy has been brought up as a Muslim, & most of his life, he has surrounded himself with communists, Anti-Christian, USA, haters. I pray that enough voters wake up & vote him out.

         Never underestimate what God can do.  Look at Paul, persecuting the Christians until God knocked him "upside his head" on the road to Damascus!

  • Coachbrian

    Everyone must get out and vote for the Romney/Ryan ticket to overcome the 3-5% voter fraud rampant in the dark blue cities. A landslide is needed to win!

    • Sarg

      I'm forming a group of people to act as drivers to pick up people that don't
      have a ride to the polls.
      If we can get the older folks to vote that usually stay home and make sure
      the younger ones know how important it is to have there vote counted we
      can make a difference.

    When the PROGRESSIVE Liberals tried this in the 40's they were beaten back, they vowed to come back thru the Demoratic Party, the schools and the Unions.  The Democratic party as we know it is gone.  My parents were life long Demoracts. My question or statement is that i believe EVERY person should see this movie.  It does NOT BASH Obama, what it does is explain his belief's....then, if that is what you want vote for him and the "party".  i believe when the people see this they will make the right choice!

    Hey "tontos", The blacks and hispanics that are against Obama anti-american liberal agenda are more brave than the dum whites that are blind or purpursly  keep supporting Omaba. Righteus people stands for true and what is right. Stop stereotyping base on race. I'm hispanic,Don't mess around with us hispanics and black conservatives, we are more brave and inteligent than the ones jugging us base on the actions of others. BTY, Obama was elected and put in office by dum whites with a guilty concience . Amen

    • Randy K

      Wow Toni...Um, check around in your area and see if you might be able to locate a night course in remedial English or a beginning composition course with emphasis on spelling and grammatical construction. I know I'm just another "dum white", but to my way of thinking, your message would probably wield greater impact were it just a tad more intelligible.By the way: I have no guilt whatsoever, did NOT vote for the current imbecile in the White House and do not need to "stereotype" anyone. I let each individual speak for him or her self, consider the message and then make a judgment based upon the merits of that message. Bravery, courage and intellect are all characteristics that are sorely needed in America today, but I would caution you with your own indictment: Don't judge all us "dum white" by the actions of the few.

  • keepersleeper

     Liberal Bas$%!...Can't trust them, no matter what the circumstance!  Go see the film:  It's an eye opener!

  • keepersleeper

    Liberals are a MESS!  I challenge ANY liberal to sit and watch "2016" with objectivity!  They can't stand the truth!

  • Janet

    2016 - Obama's America is well worth the price for the ticket.  Everyone should see this film!

  • Tom

    Right on, man, you said it!

  • Distrubed

    This movie is a must see for all. It depicts what is happening right now and most do not even realize. We will not recognize this country if Obama has another term. Why does he give billions to Brizal to drill for oil, money to China to clean up the air when our own country has millions out of work and millions more struggling. I am not sure if he is a soliz or a commun.but I do not like the directions he is taking us. Sare the wealth - Obama what don;t you share yours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So, collectivist "reviewers" are calling this a "witch hunt," eh? So, if it's filled with lies, then what IS the truth about Obama's mother, father, mentors, and HIS OWN WORDS, which the film uses in great quantity? The only people who even care to know about who Obama really is (other than the obvious hype) are those who aren't mindless zombies who can't wait to reelect the sock-puppet.

  • vdhawley

    So right about getting peole out to vote. Was talking to an elderly

  • onewhocarestoo

    Here's the problem with these posts- I see very few liberal comments, which means that the left is not seeing this movie.
    We need to make sure that as many of our "liberal"-democrat friends, acquaintances, co-workers, etc see this movie.
    Preaching to the choir is ok but the "sinners" need to get the message also.

  • dmwski1963

    If he wins he will become worse than Chavez is in Venezuela. Make sure we vote him out.

    The O asked YouTube to pull the video at the request of the Muslin Bro'hood.
    Free Speech in America? Swore to Protect and Defend the Constitution?
    You can't trust the O. Go Vote in November if we still can.

    Remember the USS Liberty that was bombed by the motherless murdering Israelis!

    God Bless Mel Gibson!

    The Holohoax is a myth, a fairy tale fabricated by Jews for reparations. There is no documented proof that the Holohoax ever happened. " Not one Jew was gassed in Europe." Bishop Williamson.

    But there is documented proof that the treacherous murdering Israelis bombed The USS Liberty!

    • westoast

      I have seen him joke about the deaths of Jewish people many times. He is a piece of garbage.
