I sat through the movie "2016: Obama's America" because friends urged me to see how it "tells the truth."
There is some "truth" in it. For example, President Barack Obama's father was from Kenya, he did leave the family when Barack was 2 years old and he was an anti-colonialist. (What African wouldn't be?)
His father died in Kenya and when Barack visited his grave, he had an emotional experience. Then the movie's psychobabble tells us that Barack was insecure as a child and wanted to please his father and so assumed his identity. Aren't insecurity and search for identity traits that challenge everyone's childhood?
The movie takes tremendous leaps of logic, such as suggesting that because his father was an anti-colonialist, his son, our president, is a communist, against capitalism, an anti-white, anti-American, who hopes to weaken our country by reducing our nuclear armaments and putting us helplessly in debt. It offers as ludicrous proof his returning Winston Churchill's bust to England, speaking up for Argentina in the Falkland Islands controversy and ideas he was exposed to by professors, poets and preachers.
Reasoning like that rampant during the McCarthy era.
As I watched the movie, I was reminded of Oliver Stone's 1991 movie "JFK" about the assassination of our 35th president. By the end of his rantings, Stone implicated everyone in the assassination, including Richard Nixon. Any thoughtful person dismissed the movie as nonsense, as I trust discriminating voters will do with "2016: Obama's America."
