Just the point that many mainstream media critics despise Dinesh D’Souza’s new movie, “America, Imagine a World Without Her,” is enough reason to enjoy the film, but that’s an amazing testament to its power and merit.
Less than two movies each year, since CinemaScore began polling viewers after each film 29 years ago, earn an A+ rating. After most audiences come out of theaters with serious pride in the United States, they whole heartedly give it an average rating of A+.
I have viewed the movie twice, the second time with a college student who said he "agreed with the movie 100%." Both times audience members were crying and during my first viewing, the movie received a standing ovation. Some reports people, total strangers begin singing "God Bless America" or the National Anthem during the ending credits.
Mainstream media has to resort to using their beloved go-to arguments with words like “hate,” “transparent,” and “racism” in an attempt to pull the movie down. D'Souza stops that nonsense in its tracks. The fact that D’Souza is an Indian immigrant prevents, with credibility, the media from pulling the race card on this one. Predictably and ultimately they are digging, scratching, tugging or using any politically correct means they can to dismiss it. Most working Americans, tired of being told and taught had evil they are, will like this movie, while the more left-leaning elitist types actually learn something from it.
The main attraction is Mr. D’Souza’s intellectual capacity to coherently and cohesively present a brilliant narrative with penetrating details on the origin of today’s political establishments. It provides a truthful and shattering takedown of those who view America as a major source of evil in the world.
Intensely, D’Souza visits liberal activists to get an understanding of their points of view. Several people told me they thought about walking out at the beginning because they didn’t want to hear what these activists had to say about Mount Rushmore, the Lincoln Memorial, the Iwo Jima Memorial, and the Statue of Liberty.
D’Souza asks “What would the work look like if America did not exist?”
One-by-one five indictments against America are explained by the prominent liberal activists. These crimes, including theft of land and labor against Native Americans, Black Americans, and Hispanic Americans are fairly presented, but then the audience begins to learn the lifelong intentions of famous historian Howard Zinn. D’Souza states that Zinn has been the most influential historian of our American history in the last 50 years and that his writings are the basis to what is currently being taught in our schools and universities.
“These indictments developed separately, and each has been around for a long time,” D’Souza illuminates. “But now they’ve come together in a single narrative of American shame.”
“When I hear young people on the campus repeat the narrative of American shame, I know they haven’t been told the whole story,” D’Souza states.
D’Souza sets the record straight, with first person sources and real accounts describing how history shows that before America, the countries and rulers were compelled by a “conquest ethic,” where the conquerors took over countries, people and assets. People became slaves.
Zinn and his revised-history disciples frequently point out that European settlers stole Native American territory. D’Souza exposes the historical accounts that these same land handovers transpired in exactly the same manner among native tribes who continuously conquered each other. The charge of genocide is discredited when the movie reveals that far more Native Americans died from disease than slaughter. The absence of natural immunities that made Indians vulnerable to European- illnesses are the ones that made Europeans disposed to the Asian ones that shattered Europe. Accurately, D’Sousa points out that no one refers to the European tragedy as genocide.
“The shaming of America is not accidental, it’s part of a strategy,” D’Sousa shows. It is a scheme conveyed by radical leftists such as Saul Alinsky who was “the godfather in the art of using shame for political shakedown.”
“Obama didn’t create this liberty-stifling reality,” states D’Sousa. “Rather, it created him.”
“The Revolution was a struggle for the creation of America,” D’Sousa explains. “The Civil War was a struggle for the preservation of America. World War II was a struggle for the protection of America. Our struggle is for the restoration of America.”
For the left and political correct revisionists of history, D’Sousa sends this message: “We won’t let them shame us. We won’t let them intimidate us. We are going to start telling the true story of America.”
