“Beating Socialism, corruption and The Deep State”
Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “TRUMP CARD is an informative, provocative and thrilling exposé, not merely of the ideas but also the tactics of the socialist Left.
Written and directed by acclaimed film maker, scholar, and New York Times best selling author Dinesh D'Souza, TRUMP CARD is an expose of the socialism, corruption and gangsterization that now define the Democratic Party. Whether it is the creeping socialism of Joe Biden or the overt socialism of Bernie Sanders, the film reveals what is unique about modern socialism, who is behind it, why its evil, and how we can work together with President Trump to stop it.
A specter is haunting America—the specter of socialism. At first glance this seems incredible. The twentieth century is seen as the century in which capitalism defeated socialism. Socialist regimes collapsed around the world. Today socialism is confined to failing societies such as Cuba, North Korea and Venezuela. Yet leading candidates and media figures are enthusiastic about moving America toward socialism. They have a raft of proposals for doing this: Medicare for all, universal basic income, free college and the Green New Deal. This movie will expose the ideology and tactics of the new socialism. It will explain the temptation of socialism—an age of abundance in which we all get something for nothing—and show why the socialist society is a mirage. Socialism produces deprivation, conformity and tyranny. More than a critique of socialism, the movie will also make a moral defense of capitalism and show how capitalism, not socialism, is the best way to have prosperity and social justice. Narrated by Dinesh D’Souza and featuring eye-opening interviews, dramatic recreations and comical animated illustrations, this film will be a timely, riveting and entertaining look at the biggest issue dividing America today.”
America’s legacy is a living core of liberty—God-given, unalienable. Over two hundred years ago our founders brought together a republic of states with an innovative form of government which is still envied by much of the world’s population. We are now witnessing the most aggressive ideological attack on United States’ unity since our Civil War (1861-1865).
In spite of its tag as “documentary,” I wondered if “Trump Card” would be an enlightened rant designed to counter punch today’s popular empty-headed rants. In contrast, Dinesh D'Souza makes an especially courteous case for the preservation of America. His witnesses’ integrity equals the power of their testimonies. And, the temptation to exclusively fold in emotionally charged content is mitigated by his grounded presentation of facts.
“Trump Card” skillfully contrasts Marx/Lenin “traditional socialism” with contemporary “democratic socialism.” Its logical progression which unveils socialism’s attractive path to subjugation is flawless and occasionally startling. Some interesting, lesser known historical points are also included.
In every respect the movie accomplishes the claims in its official description. Socialism’s acute dangers are laid out with simple clarity.
“For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be made known.” —Luke 12:2
President Trump’s presence is respectfully portrayed as a vivid illustration of the larger principles which drive America’s remarkable success and hopeful future.
There is offensive content: three instances of vulgarity, a reference to sodomy, scenes of actual street violence, and two fictitious scenes of torture.
Christians know the promise of the Lord’s gift of salvation and their future with Him in Heaven. “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed” (John 8:36). This movie is an encouraging reminder of our inescapable role as good stewards of a nation that was born by liberty.
My DVD will be around our house for a long time, because its message swats aside the vitriolic cobwebs of politics and personalities, leaving U.S. citizens with the question which trumps many others.
