My review of 2016: Obama's America
The movie starts off with a contemplative Dinesh D'Souza talking about Dinesh D'Souza and comparing Dinesh D'Souza to the president. For example, they both have dads. They both have distant relatives that aren't in the USA. They both have dark skin. Therefore, Dinesh understands Obama.
From there, some disproven Republican talking points are stated as fact (i.e. that the tar sands pipeline would create tens of thousands of jobs) and he asks why, WHY IS OBAMA HOLDING BACK AMERICA?
Dinesh figures it all out by talking to distant relatives and right-wing kooks. The "facts" end here, and everything that comes next is amateur psychoanalysis, conspiracy, and paranoia. Spoiler alert: Barack isn't Barack. He's his dad. And this Barack-Dad hybrid is a pure commie, and wants all countries to be 3rd world countries, and hates America. You can tell because he dislikes imperialism and wants to reduce the amount of nuclear warheads. Therefore, Obama became president in order to bring the USA down to the level of a third world country. He done tricked us!
This sounds crazy, but I'm not making it up: "Obama wants us to be a 3rd world country" really is the entire theory behind the movie, almost word for word.
Dinesh made this movie to appeal to imperialist Neocons, such as Ann Coulter. This is not a movie that will win the hearts of small-government, anti-war libertarian types. It will not convert a single liberal or fence-sitter. It's simply masturbation fodder for the war-loving patriot.
I'd honestly prefer the peace-loving Obama portrayed in this documentary to the war-loving, child-killing Obama we have now.
