It is quite challenging to think of what the world would look like if America did not exist. Dinesh D’Souza’s new film America, produced by Oscar winner Gerald Molen and John Sullivan, seeks to address that very question. The film was part of the topic discussed during D’Souza’s CPAC speech this afternoon. When speaking about the film, D’Souza said,
After we did 2016, President Obama was very upset… If he was upset about that film, wait ’til he sees the new one.
That statement alone was reason enough for me to want to see it. And then I saw the trailer during CPAC which made me want to see it even more!
Narrated by D’Souza, it begins by showing images of American icons like Steve Jobs, Ronald Reagan and Jackie Robinson and transitions into a war scene which depicts the American and British armies where General George Washington is fatally shot.
At the end of the trailer D’Souza asks, “what would the world look like if America did not exist?”
During his speech, D’Souza also said
“it’s a spectacular film; underlying it is taking on the central argument of progressivism. This argument at its core is a moral indictment of America and the free market system. We make the moral case (in the movie) for America, for free markets…. in a fresh way you haven’t heard before.”
