The Barack Insane Obama crew is at full (throated) throttle right now, thanks to the schlockumentary 2016: Obama’s America.
Full-page ad in Sunday’s New York Times:
Nut (no pun intended) graf:
Obama has a dream. A dream from his father. That the sins of colonialism be set right, and America be downsized.
It’s easy to dismiss this as more nonsense from the lunatic fringe, but this movie is gaining serious critical mass.
From the Alt Film Guide last Thursday:
2016 Obama’s America, Dinesh D’Souza and John Sullivan’s anti-Obama documentary that has been embraced by the American Right, lambasted by the White House, and criticized for its factual inaccuracies and flights of fancy, is 2012′s top non-fiction film at the North American box office.
With a domestic cume of $30.6m as of Tuesday, Sept. 18 (source: Box Office Mojo), D’Souza and Sullivan’s 2016movie has also surpassed the inflation-adjusted take of recent documentaries directed by liberals: Michael Moore’s Sicko (inflation-adjusted $28.6m) andBowling for Columbine ($29.44m), and Davis Guggenheim’s Oscar-winning, Al Gore-inspired An Inconvenient Truth ($29.56m).
The box-office gross has since dropped sharply, but that doesn’t lessen the overall impact of the film. And with full-page ads in the New York Times, who knows where it will go from here?
Mostly downhill, we’re guessing.
