Many listen to Obama's words and believe that he has tempered his radical mentoring with love of country and a firm understanding and respect for the Constitution. I would argue that Obama and his attorney general Holder have used the government as a political and economic weapon to stifle investigations into corruption at the IRS, weapons smuggling by the BATFE, wiretapping of the press and botched foreign intelligence gathering and protection of diplomatic staff in Benghazi.
The film argues that Obama wants to reduce significantly the U.S.'s influence within the world while increasing the influence of nations that he believes have suffered or been held back economically or militarily due to U.S. and Western domination. This grand accomplishment of moral relativism would be a charming legacy for Obama and those who support him, which is over half of the US electorate. Perhaps, in their minds, it would right some of the wrongs from our nation's past treatment of Indians, Vietnamese, and Banana Republics.
What is unfortunate about this naivete is that where US leadership and moral courage falter (imperfect as it might be), the vacuum is filled by nations and powers with far worse intent than the US, and with no morals to be relativistic about. Unfortunately, this feckless paradigm seems to be growing among the political royalty in Washington, and on both sides of the aisle.
This movie should not be mistaken for a conspiracy theorist's quest for truth on Obama. There are no baseless charges or accusations based on the place of Obama's birth, religion or college transcripts. In fact, about fifteen minutes into D'Souza's film he matter-of-factly states Obama was born in Hawaii, as was reported by two Hawaiian newspapers on the day of his birth. Even Slate's Dave Weigel begrudgingly acknowledges D'Souza stands on "mostly solid" ground, steering clear of conspiracy charges making rounds in conservative circles.
Instead, D'Souza intentionally traces the steps of Obama's upbringing, attempting to explain Obama's sometimes baffling decisions. Decisions like returning a bust of Winston Churchill to Great Britain at the beginning of his presidency, delaying the construction of the Keystone pipeline while giving money to South American countries to drill for oil, cherry-picking where to intervene in the Middle East (e.g. using force in Libya but not Iran or Syria), reducing America's nuclear arsenal while making no moves to stop Iran from making nuclear weapons, and reducing NASA's mission to Muslim outreach are all examined. D'Souza's conclusion? Obama is an anti-colonialist.
Anti-colonialism, D'Souza explains, is the worldview that sees America's net effect in the world as bad, not good.Read more ›
