2016: Obama’s America–Bad Remake of the Manchurian Candidate?

NeoCon and avowed Obama hater Dinesh D'Souza‘s movie is no more a documentary than Fox News is fair and balanced. It’s propaganda, designed to cash in on the anti-Obama sentiment of the Radical Right who will no doubt believe it as easily as they do the distortions, misinformation, and outright lies of the GOP and Fox News.

“And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.” Revelation 13:1-3.

And the beast called itself GOP and written upon its seven heads are: Avarice, Cowardice, Entitlement, Homophobia, Ignorance, Misogyny, and Racism. And the meek shall cry out in agony. And the beast shall be slain by the Lamb, in their name. And the beast's name shall be erased from the minds of men forever.
