Last week I went to see Dinesh D’Souza’s America: Imagine the World Without Her and I am right now advising everyone to take the time to see it.
In it, D’Souza takes on the Left’s baseless and one-sided claims about America: to hear the Left’s version of history, America is a nation built on racism, sexism, classism, and imperialism. In less than two hours, D’Souza lays waste to these absolute absurd charges leveled against the United States.
It’s worth noting that D’Souza actually lets the Left lay out their case against America in their own words. This is a noted contrast to how the Left does things.
With Progressives’ representations of such a narrative, they set up a field of strawmen, call it the “conservative position,” douse said strawmen with gasoline, set them on fire. And then claim they won the argument.
D’Souza is clearly smarter than that, because he allows noted Leftists like Bill Ayers, Ward Churchill, and Michael Eric Dyson free rein to make their case, and then Dinesh follows in their wake and destroys their assertions with the truth.
Dinesh D’Souza’s film is a systematic and thorough take down of the worst of the dishonest claims that the American Left makes against the existence of the United States. In a way, it actually allows the viewers to see that the Progressive Left actually holds the founding of the nation in contempt and that they hate everything America stands for.
From the claims that America stole Mexico after the Mexican-American War, to our allegedly imperial foreign policy, D’Souza doesn’t let the claims of America’s detractors stand.
We cannot allow for the Left’s continued character assassination of the United States. It’s not only a slap in the face to the Founders, but it is also a slap at those of us who call America “home” now.
The Left’s concept of America is that of a nation founded by racist, sexist, rich white guys which is still a horrid place to live. And Progressives postulate that all of the non-white, non-rich, non-Christian people are still being robbed of their rightful place.
Those Leftist/Socialist beliefs necessitate tearing down the America we all know and love, and replacing our country with an America that’s closer to the democratic socialism of Europe. Capitalism must be replaced with the communist idea of “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”
Those of us who love our country and love our God-given liberties that are outlined in the Constitution, need to tell others to see this film. America is a siren being sounded to wake us to the internal threats we face. How long can a nation stand when one of the two major political parties is out to bring down the Republic from within?
Not very long, which is why Howard Zinn’s “A People’s History of the United States” is required reading in many American universities and public schools. D’Souza spends a lot of time taking apart Zinn’s insidious lies about this country because they are so pervasive in our culture.
One of the tip offs that Zinn’s book should be disregarded by truly serious historians is Zinn’s claim that he is using history to change the world. History is supposed to be the story of what happened, not a saga to “change the world.”
America: Imagine the World without Her is a film that should be required viewing by high school and college students. Those students need to be awakened to the massive con being foisted on them by their professors and by the popular couple. This generation is inheriting an America that is in decline at the hands of the Progressive Left.
America exposes the Left for what they really are: an anti-American scourge, hell-bent on using “fairness” as a pretext to take down America as founded and replace it with the kind of system you see dragging people down in the third-world. As President Reagan once said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.”
