A Cool 4th of July: See “America: Imagine the World Without Her”
Dinesh D’Souza’s movie “America: Imagine the World Without Her” is a must see for all patriots. Viewing it would a great way to spend your 4th of July in celebration of our nation’s birth. The movie starts with a musing on what might have happened if George Washington had been killed during the Revolutionary War, leading to the erasure of Mount Rushmore, the Statue of Liberty and other icons of America.
D’Souza addresses the main assertions by America haters such as former professor Ward Churchill and Bill Ayers, giving them through interviews the venue to speak to the issue of America from their perspective. He addresses the fallacies of their bias against America such as the treatment of American Indians, the “stealing of land from Mexico”, Slavery, American “imperialism”, and “greedy Capitalism”. He particularly addresses the inaccuracies in Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States, which has been required reading in Madison City Schools 11th grade ELA classes.
The docudrama includes action scenes from America’s past as well as thoughtfully presented facts. D’Sousa even includes Alabama’s own Becky Gerritson of the Wetumpka Tea Party with her moving testimony before the Congressional hearing on the IRS as he addresses the overreach of our present government and the threats to our freedoms. He ends with a charge to all freedom loving Americans to do their part to preserve the idea that is America.
