    The explosive documentary that is set to come out in July, created by Dinesh D'Souza, who after having created *Obama's America* was arrested and detained for 8 months in a federal confinement center for illegal political contributions.

    This documentary explores what the Democratic Party has not only revised their own story, but conscripted Republicans to assist them in disseminating the false narrative of their innocence in America's worst moments.

    In May 2014, D'Souza pleaded guilty to one felony count of making illegal contributions in the names of others.[103] D'Souza told Judge Berman, "I knew that causing a campaign contribution to be made in the name of another was wrong and something the law forbids. I deeply regret my conduct." During sentencing, D'Souza submitted a letter to the court arguing that prosecutors purposefully neglected to present an honest comparison of past sentences for the same offense[104] and in September 2014, the court sentenced D'Souza to five years probation, eight months in a halfway house (referred to as a "community confinement center") and a $30,000 fine, rejecting the prosecutor's recommendations of prison time.[12] He is also required to perform a day (eight hours) of community service each week during his probation and must undergo therapy on a weekly basis.[11]

    D'Souza's claim of selective prosecution has received support from some conservative media and commentators.[105] Liberal [106][107] Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, said in an interview, “The idea of charging him with a felony for this doesn’t sound like a proper exercise of prosecutorial discretion.... I can’t help but think that [D'Souza's] politics have something to do with it.... It smacks of selective prosecution.” He went on to say such alleged campaign violations are common in politics.[108]

    You mean pled guilty to a felony and "was sentenced to eight months in a halfway house near his home in San Diego, five years probation, and a $30,000 fine." And if you're going to copy and paste from Wikipedia at least provide a link.

    I'm sure the felon's documentary will be just as accurate and faithful to the truth as the OP was. MR members are advised to consider the sources.

    Judge Berman:

    “That Mr. D’Souza committed this crime involves a colossal failure of insight and introspection. The case notes also say Mr. D’Souza has weaknesses in controlling his own impulses and that he is prone to anger in reaction to criticism.”

    No, it's not. The wording in the OP is quite deliberate - it suggests D'Felon was detained and held in "a federal confinement center" without charges because he made the "documentary." That deliberately false insinuation still stands uncorrected in the OP.

    Diarrhea can be explosive too.

    More info on Dinesh;
    D'Souza has been named one of America's most influential conservative thinkers by the New York Times Magazine. The World Affairs Council lists him as one of the nation's 500 leading authorities on international issues, and Newsweek cited him as one of the country's most prominent Asian-Americans.

    No, it's still deliberately inaccurate. But that fits with most of what you post here.

    It's just entertainment. Most bio-pics and drama documentaries (aka "mockumentaries") are just video editions of tabloid trash. Doesn't matter what is being put in front of the camera, it's just there for consumers to blindly swallow - based on target market of choice.

    Yes, Right-wing Fringies tend to have the same uninformed accounting of history.

    Finally watched the trailer. The acting in this looks terrible. Those wigs! OMG.

    This film will no doubt be hilarious. It's ripe for parody. Funny or Die, get on it!

    Is it fiction that Democrats engaged in racism?

    More like the new James O'Keefe. (Full disclosure: James O'Keefe is not a convicted felon. He came close though)

    But Evitz writes:

    "The conservative academic turned reactionary propagandist is out with a sequel to 2016: Obama’s America. In that film, D’Souza revealed that Barack Obama is actually an anti-colonialist revolutionary who is deliberately driving up the national debt in order to bring down America from within."

    Tell me that was not a prescient warning.

    Well, given that what actually occurred bears no resemblance to that, I'll tell you that it was not a prescient warning.

    Let's see.

    Anti-colonialist revolutionary. Check.

    Driving up the national debt. Check.

    Bring down America from within.
    Have a little patience.

    Obama didn't drive up the debt. It's been proven over and over and OVER again that spending has slowed under his presidency.

    But yeah, he has still added on top of it, that much is true. But think of it like this...

    Imagine a guy who overspends by $100 a week. He does this for 8 years. People get sick of him, and choose another guy to balance the budget.

    Next guy comes in, lowers the cost of overspending by $60 a week. He does this for 8 years. Everyone who liked the first guy turns around, and screams that this new guy is TOTALLY OUT OF CONTROL! WE SHOULD'VE NEVER REPLACED THE OLD GUY, CUZ THE NEW GUY IS WORSE!

    Yeah, the new guy is still spending, and adding to the debt, but at a lower rate than the previous guy. By this point, it's all just picking nits for cookie points.
