From June 30, 2010, The United States “Southwest:” A bandit’s loot by means of murder and theft:
“The land stolen from Mexico is bigger than Germany and France combined and considered to be among the riches in the world where an abundance of gold was foundafter the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed. The native Mexicans were forced to become US citizens or leave the area one year after the Treaty was signed. As a result of the invader’s laws, thousands of native Mexicans left but the great majority stayed and became citizens. Throughout the development of the so-called ‘Republic of Texas’ the war against Mexicans was made of grave crimes. The well-known philosopher and historian Jose Vasconcelos wrote that one reason whites perpetrated horrible crimes against Mexicans, was because they believed in the concept known as ‘manifest destiny’ which in practice meant to ‘kill all the Mexicans and take Mexico.’”
When my son was a senior in high school he (briefly) had a Mexican-American counselor who followed this belief, that “whites stole Texas and California” and that we are “all illegals”. His hope was that someday Mexico would retaliate and take it all back by force.
Of course I reported him to the school board as soon as I heard about the propaganda he was force-feeding students, but not before giving him a piece of my 7th-generation-Texan mind. He responded by laughing and telling me, “Someday you’ll learn, Blondie.” (And yes, it took everything in me to leave his office without inflicting some type of bodily harm…)
As conservatives, most of us have been subjected to the backlash that occurs when you speak out against true injustice (Benghazi, the IRS targeting innocent citizens, the VA scandal, the real world war on women). We are accused of being racist, homophobic, Islamaphobic and/or every other ‘-phobic’ known to man. The only way to effectively battle these accusations is to heavily arm yourself with facts and talking points about American history—and not the revisionist kind that schools are currently teaching our kids.
In his new movie America: Imagine a World Without Her, Dinesh D’Souza provides you with a rocket launcher of truth about America in clear, precise, easy-to- relay ways.
From D’Souza’s website:
“Gerald Molen, the Academy-award winning producer of Schindler’s List, and Dinesh D’Souza, the creator of 2016: Obama’s America, invite you on a journey of discovery that will bring you face-to-face with the heroes who built America, in the times in which they lived, bled, and sacrificed in order to build a great nation: Christopher Columbus, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, and others. You’ll be there as Columbus sets foot on American soil, as bullets whiz by Washington’s head, as Douglass demands that America live up to the promises of her Founding Fathers, and as Lincoln sacrifices thousands of lives, including his own, to right a great wrong of history.
We’ll also meet their present-day critics, hear their stories, and then let you decide which America you believe in. From the team that created 2016: Obama’s America comes the story not of a man, but of a nation at the crossroads of hope and disaster, whose destination will soon be decided.”
America covers the 5 main arguments (aka lies) that anti-American leftists hurl at the right in order to prove that America is an “evil empire”. D’Souza’s 5 answers to these myths are invaluable to anyone–from activist to layman–who isn’t sure how to respond to direct accusations about everything from Christopher Columbus landing in America to the “evils” of capitalism.
In the film, one Native American woman claims Mt. Rushmore is a “symbol of genocide for our people”. Noam Chomsky states, “There’s a reason why most of the world regards the United States as a predatory, colonial power…” And when D’Souza asks political activist Ward Churchill what words he thinks of when he hears the name “America”, Churchill answers, “European expansion…conquests…colonization…genocide…”
As Dinesh said at CPAC this year, America takes on the “central argument of progressivism” and makes the “moral case for America, for free markets, in a fresh way you haven’t heard before.”
Another added bonus is at the end when our friends Madison Rising perform the Star Spangled Banner. Brilliant.
America: Imagine A World Without Her is directed by John Sullivan and co-produced by Gray Frederickson, who won an Oscar for producing The Godfather Part II, and Gerald Molen, who won an Oscar for Schindler’s List. D’Souza and Sullivan co-directed 2016: Obama’s America.
America opens in theaters July 2 and all of us at PolitiChicks.com who have seen the film not only recommend it, but we also implore you to bring your entire family so you can discuss it at length at home and beyond.
