2016 - OBAMA'S AMERICA; A CRITIQUE

In the brief time Dinesh D'Souza's movie, 2016 - Obama's America, appeared on YouTube, I was able to view it in its entirety. The movie may still be available here.

Like most movies of late, I wouldn't have paid to go see it.

I found it particularly disturbing that D'Souza, a supposed conservative, did not make the distinction between what he characterized as Obama's anti-colonialist view and Obama's Marxist ideology. In watching the film, one gets the decided impression that they coalesce. They don't.

Watching the film, one gets the decided impression that colonialism is what America is all about, emanating from our founding documents; the film making reference to American influence world-wide, as though American influence and colonialism are synonymous. They aren't.

Those who have studied the history of our nation are aware of George Washington's farewell address to the nation, in 1796, and his warning and caution—to not become involved in the affairs of other nations; to form no permanent alliance with any other nation.

Colonialism is not for the purposes of civilizing or increasing the wealth of a country; colonialism is almost exclusively about the taking of the natural resources of one nation by another for profit; something Obama saw in his years in Indonesia, in his time in Kenya. People in third world countries see their land raped, polluted, destroyed; their leaders get rich while the people become poorer. This forms the foundation of Obama's anti-colonialism views; one that most Americans, including myself, would agree with.

The United States government, unbeknownst to most of the American people, is involved in this type activity. It is an activity our Founding Fathers would find abhorrent. Our current crop of politicians (not to be mistaken for statesman) in Washington, DC, pretend the activity doesn't exist as their excuse for doing nothing. And those who profit are American corporations, the American government and American politicians, not the American people.

In making the insinuation that colonialism and influence are synonymous, D'Souza errors grievously. Our Founding Fathers were against colonialism; they were not, however, against American influence in helping other nations achieve prosperity.

We should not make the mistake of believing that Obama's anti-colonialist views means he is pro-U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. Nothing could be further from the truth.

In Obama's America - 2016 D'Souza failed to delineate why Obama's association with Bill Ayres, his mentorship by Communist Party USA member Frank Marshall Davis should be of note; that these men, among many others, including the man supposedly his biological father, form the foundation of Obama's Marxist ideology, are the basis of Obama's disdain and dislike of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Few people, in America today, understand that Marxist ideology is antithetical to freedom, liberty and justice. After all, didn't communism die when the U.S.S.R. imploded? Few Americans today realize that Marxism is alive and well, and residing in Washington, DC right now; that it is the philosophy of both the Democrat Party (communist) and the Republican Party (fascist); that the only argument between the two parties is who will own the means of production - the government under the guise of the people (communism) or the corporate state (fascism). The words of Alexander Tytler were prophetic,

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent force of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largess [benefits] from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes the candidate promising the most benefit from the public treasure, with eh result that democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always foiled by dictatorship.

The American people, today, are given a choice between two candidates - one communist, promising those who want something for nothing largess from the public treasure, one fascist, promising the corporate state greater benefit under the guise of creating jobs. Mitt Romney, the Republican, said it right when he said that those being promised greater largess from the public treasure would vote for Obama. But Romney, promising greater largess to the corporate state, is no better; in both instances the American people are the loser. And because the American people hold their nose and vote for what they believe is the "lesser of two evils" instead of voting their conscience, America is on a never-ending downward spiral to the totalitarian state that was the U.S.S.R. That spiral has been aided and abetted, every step of the way, by the alphabet soup that defines the mainstream media: NBC, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, CNN; and yes, even FOX News.

And few children, having graduated the public (ergo, government) schools in the last fifty years, can articulate why our United States Constitution and Bill of Rights is antithetical to the Marxist ideology of Obama (and of Romney). If people know not from which they came, they will know not where they are going. And few American people today realize that the transforming of America, that has been in the works for the past hundred years, and specifically in the last twenty, is called transformational Marxism - the quiet or gradual atrophy to the Marxist state in which the people become the servant of the government instead of government's master; human resources (yes, a Marxist term) to be used and discarded at the whim of the government, receiving food, shelter and healthcare (Obamacare) according to their value in producing goods and services for the benefit of the government elite under the guise of "the common good".

Systems philosophy, what forms the foundation of the Marxist state, has already been put in place in every government entity in the United States by any of a number of innocent sounding 'management' styles: total quality management (TQM), continuous quality improvement (CQI), outcome-base education (OBE, a.k.a. performance-based education, competency-based education), the high performance work organization (HPWO), planning programming budgeting systems (PPBS).

The Goals 2000: Educate America Act, P.L. 103-227, March 31, 1994, was written expressly for the purpose of establishing the foundation, in government schools nation-wide, for the Marxist education system now utilized in our government schools under the guise of "education reform". The law was the outreach of two Republican (Reagan and Bush I) and one Democrat (Clinton) president. It has not deviated, in focus, goal and purpose, under Bush II and Obama. As Hitler said, in 1939,

When an opponent declares 'I will not come over to your side', I calmly say 'Your child belongs to us already. What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.'

Sadly, most Christians in America today still send their children to the government schools; where they are properly indoctrinated with the Marxist ideology.

Likewise, most Christians in America today—flocking to their local churches every Sunday, where pastors preach social gospel (i.e. social justice) from the pulpit instead of the word of God—do not know or understand the role of Christianity in the establishment of and preservation of freedom, liberty and justice; believing that the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights establishes separation of church and state as has been hammered into their heads in the government schools; believing, without question, that their Christian beliefs must be left at the door as they enter the halls of government. Nothing could be further from the truth. One has to wonder if these so-called Christians believe that Obama leaves his religion at the door when he enters the halls of government. He doesn't; not by any stretch of the imagination.

The First Amendment of the Bill of Rights was written to keep from happening in America what had happened in England and was the source of grief for religious freedom—the establishment of a state recognized religion. The First Amendment prohibits a state established (recognized) religion; it does not prohibit people from practicing their religious beliefs in the halls of government as individuals.

I found Obama's America- 2016 a big disappointment as no clear lines were drawn of the ideologies being presented; that both colonialism and Marxism are antithetical to freedom, liberty and justice; D'Souza made no clear distinction between Obama's anti-colonialist views and his Marxist ideology.

There is a clear distinction and the American people need to know what that distinction is. I found the movie disturbing in its apparent ignorance of our history and founding documents.

Obama seeks to destroy America, not only because of what he perceives as her colonialist activities in other countries, for which he wrongly believes the American people should pay—as opposed to those, like him, who have benefited directly from those activities as an elected representative in Washington, DC, but also because freedom, liberty and justice are antithetical to Marxism.

And Obama is a Marxist.
