America—Home to beneficiaries of revolutions. Revolutions for right. Revolutions for liberty. Revolutions of commerce. Revolutions of creativity. Revolutions of thought. The author of, “America: Imagine The World Without Her,” like our ancestors came here in response to rumors of vast freedom, a new way of life under a government “of the people.” Like so many who have served in our military, the gentleman’s name, Dinesh D’Souza, no longer belongs in the category, with me, of a beneficiary. He has earned his stripes and is paying for his stand financially and may soon pay with his freedom.
Today, these rumors of liberty Mr. D’Souza came to experience, live under the shadow of a long list of accusations. For those abroad not intimately associated with the oppressive guilt that has been lorded over the American people, “America” spells it out well. For those in the United States, more every day, who stand against this well-orchestrated attack against the hotbed of liberty America has been, it is an encouraging film; it provides answers. It provides hope.
The film “America” illustrates succinctly, and answers with dignity and honesty, the question of our national integrity. This generation knows the dissensions to that integrity quite well. They are rampant in the public school system and stand tall in our colleges. D’Souza, an educator and the son of an anti-colonialist himself, addresses these issues from a fresh perspective—from that of an educated, intellectually engaged immigrant. His analysis may surprise you. It is balanced with an understanding and consideration for what the world once was and what is has now become—with rightful emphasis on what good this blessed nation has brought to the entire globe, through Christian influence and a passion for the birthright of all men, “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
The most likely audience for “America” is a conservative one. That’s fine really—we should know his perspective, since we are all immigrants, ultimately. Alas, it does go a step further than most documentaries of its kind, lending more time to display the views which oppose America for her imperfections and sins before venturing into well thought out responses. The colors and illustrations in “America” are not cheap or cheesy. Dinesh produces an entertaining piece of education which is not sparing in distinct professional quality, and some downright gorgeous camera work.
This film contains a small bout of profanity, since it includes audio and video clips of the well-known followers of Rules for Radicals, and the philosophically Luciferian leader of the left, Saul Alinsky. That includes an audio of American President Barack Hussein Obama’s former pastor of 20 years, Jeremiah Wright shouting, “God d**n America!”. There is little to nothing else in this film which approaches offensive material.
I encourage you to see “America”. When you are done, go see “Agenda: Grinding America Down”. The Web site even has a Marx chart for sale, which illustrates how the lines of the Left lead to perhaps the most well groomed politician in history, fashioned for his part against liberty right in the hotbed of liberty.
Stay strong—America, trusting in the God that “preserved us a nation.”
“O thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation.
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the Heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!”
—The Star-Spangled Banner
