…At least if you live in Greensboro, because two local theaters are showing ‘2016: Obama’s America’:
Carousel hadn’t planned to show the documentary but added it after “high call volume,” manager Re-Shonda Thompson said.
“We’ve had people call — a whole lot of people call,” she said.
Thomas Sowell had to drive 30 miles to see the movie. But he says it was worth it:
The documentary itself was fascinating, as Dinesh D’Souza presented the story of Barack Obama’s life and view of the world, in a very conversational sort of way, illustrating it with visits to people and places around the world that played a role in the way Obama’s ideas and beliefs evolved.
…..What is that ideological view? The Third World, or anti-colonial, view is that the rich nations have gotten rich by taking wealth from the poor nations. It is part of a much larger vision, in which the rich in general have gotten rich by taking from the poor, whether in their own country or elsewhere.
Not a moviegoer myself, so I’ll probably pass. Irony is I’d have to go to a movie to get a dose of reality while the fantasy that is the Obama campaign continues playing out on my TV.
