Topic: Accuracy in Media
Only in Cliff Kincaid's world is it an offense for Obama-haters to be insufficiently hateful.
In a July 26 Accuracy in Media article, Kincaid complains that Dinesh D'Souza's new Obama-bashing film -- based on his discredited book claiming that President Obama is driven by anti-colonialism -- doesn't focus enough on Obama being a commie:
The new conservative film, “Obama’s America: 2016,” offers a lot of good information but muddies the waters as Americans, during this critical election year, look outside the major media for information about their President.
Instead of educating people about the communist influence over Barack Obama, an unprecedented and shocking development for an American president, filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza claims that “anti-colonialism,” a philosophy exploited by communists, is behind his beliefs and policies.
The critical fact about the cause of anti-colonialism, ignored in the film, is that it was a tactic of the international communist movement, which attempted to create the Soviet Union’s own colonial empire.
This omission is strange, since D’Souza’s film touts his work for President Ronald Reagan, who fought the communists in Hollywood and confronted the Soviet “evil empire,” leading to the collapse of the system and the independence of countries formerly under its control.
Kincaid also complains that "D’Souza doesn’t credit Trevor Loudon, who has his own patriotic reasons for alerting the American people to the foreign influence over Obama, for his research into the “Frank” controversy." But Loudon is a foreigner, living in New Zealand, so the "patriotism" Kincaid claims for him is suspect.
