2016:Obama's America

The paranoid, right-wing, pseudo-documenatry, 2016: Obama's America, has been a huge success at the box office, grossiing some $30 million to date.

Last month, Courtney covered the film (HERE) and we got a ton of comments - especially from hardcore fans of the film, saying how much they loved it, and that people stood up and applauded at the end of the film, in the theaters where they saw it -no doubt, the same type of people who stand up and applaud at cross burnings.

In reality, 2016 is nothing more than a modern day version of the infamous 1962 TV special Red Nightmare, starring Jack Webb (of Dragnet fame), which painted a nightmare of a future America, after a takeover by the then communist Soviet Union, which had become a grim, oppressive, totalitarian hell hole.

But let's be totally honest here: do you really think that if Obama were, say, a white guy named O'Bama, who could trace his family to County Cork, would such a documentary exist in the first place? Yeah, I don't think so either.

But hey, just don't go by my words. The film, directed by right wing conversative pundit and lacky Dinesh D'Souza, based on his book, The Roots of Obama's Rage, says that the President is an angry, anti-American "Third World upstart," filled with anti-colonialist rage taught to him by his father. You know, the one he only met once in his entire life.

Entertanment Weekly magazine likened the film to "a Republican 'Southern strategy,' which contends that the GOP attempts to win elections by appealing to the racist sentiments in America." 

But however, the producer of the film, Gerald Molen, who produced such Steven Spielberg films such as Schindler’s List, Jurassic Park, and Minority Report, said that the charges that his film is racist are “patently ridiculous,in an interview today with the website Mediate.

He further added, noting that the director of the film, D'Souza, is non-white, that “absolutely nothing contained in the film implies racism and if I were racist, I wouldn’t be aligning myself with him.

And some of my best friends are Indian.

Molen is upset that people would even think that he's a racist: “It’s hard to be a racist in Hollywood (and) talk to anyone in Hollywood, and find them saying I’m racist. You can’t find anyone who will say it. There is not a racist bone in my body....Because we ask questions, we’re racist? That shows me that those critics operate from the bottom of the pit.

Like I say folks, you can't make this stuff up. It writes itself.

But why doesn't Molen like Obama? According to him: There’s just so much secrecy with Obama. Why won’t he release his school grades? Why can’t we have some insight into his academic prowess? Whether he wrote any great papers? Why doesn’t the media plead with this guy they have so much respect for to have him open up?

Or, in other words... translated: "If he wins again, black people will take over the country, start producing films with Spielberg, move into my house and have sex with my wife and daughter while blasting rap music all the time out of their cars."

But don't be too hard on Molen. He clearly sees himself as a patriot: “We’re losing a lot of the personal individualism in this country. We see more of a nanny state now: it’s slowly becoming a society of makers and takers.

Hey, isn't that EXACTLY the same thing Romney was secretly recorded saying at the $50,000 a plate dinner party the other day? Talk about birds of a feather.

I guess all this means that Molen will never hire me to work on any of his films; as if that was ever going to happen.
