Conservative Doc ‘2016’ to Continue Its Anti-Obama Message in ‘America’

Barack Obama

One of the biggest political talking points of the summer of 2012 spawned in a Houston movie house one hot Friday in July. The conservative documentary 2016: Obama’s America, created by political commentator Dinesh D’Souza and released on a single screen in Texas’ biggest city, had quickly grown to nationwide fame and infamy, ultimately becoming the fourth highest grossing documentary in history. Hungry for that same serving of buzz, D’Souza is following up his film with another cinematic jab at the POTUS — this time, he’s punching up the title a bit: America, a movie that will combine the filmmaker’s animosity for President Obama with, as depicted in the below trailer, an extended metaphor about America never having existed.

The Hollywood Reporter shares D’Souza’s comments about the new documentary: “President Obama looks at America as an oppressive force, while I and millions of others around the world have a different view – that America has been a great blessing to its own people and to the world.” Delve into D’Souza’s mind-melting hypothetical in the first teaser for the film.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
