Dinesh D'Souza on Marxists

It should be noted that President Barack Obama was on the faculty of the University of Chicago from 1992-2004 as an adjunct lecturer on Constitutional Law.   Perhaps if D'Souza was thinking of our President with his maxim about American Marxists.

One might wonder why the Rules for Radicals: A Practical Primer for Realistic Radicals (1971) was taught in a US Constitutional Law course and what Saul Alinsky has to do with the Constitution.  

D'Souza's first film 2016: Obama's America  (2012) is a documentary which postulates that Barack Obama's weltanschauung was shaped by his early influences.  Obama chose to identify with his father's anti-colonial urge to reshape the world, particularly hyperpowers like the (former) British Empire.  Obama's early radical progressive influences are epitomized in candidate Obama's exuberant exclamation of "fundamentally transforming America in 2008 and by how he governs as President.   

The film cost $2.5 million  to produce and grossed over $33 million at the Box Office, which was the second highest grossing political documentary ever.   

Just prior to Independence Day weekend, D'Souza will release the film America which will be another political film which will take on the progressive critique that America was founded upon plunder and theft and debunk it.  As D'Souza divulged at CPAC 2014: "If he [Mr. Obama] was upset about that film, wait 'til he sees the new one.
