Citizen D. of Occupy White House Videos unleashed a hellstorm of fiery approbation on his blog, today, and his disapproval wasn’t directed at our corrupt President, or his Democrat minions in Congress or the MSM…
It was directed at fellow conservatives for posting and reposting a link to Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary 2016: Obama’s America, with the headline: “Now online in its entirety on Youtube”, this weekend.
The blogosphere raced to watch and download (and upload?) 2016 for free. Meaning, of course, that Dinesh D’Souza and everyone else involved with this film, a film so incredibly important to history, to this election, a film that was 3 years in the making, received no royalties for the viewings.
When I followed the link to the video yesterday it had roughly 13,700 hits. At a $10/movie ticket price, the filmmakers lost $137,000 via that youtube link alone, assuming only 1 viewer at a time watched it. Of course there’s no way of calculating how often the film was downloaded and the exponential number of viewers and lost income resulting from that.
Citizen D. asks, “is watching 2016 without paying for it, without legal permission, some kind of conservative entitlement?”
Where was the honor, the honesty, the morals so often touted?? What happened to PAYING SOMEONE FOR THEIR WORK rather than stealing it because the opportunity presented itself?
Do the right thing.And be sure to read his latest article.
An important update: Dinesh & PJTV talk about the film’s distribution and future availabilty.
Dinesh points out the importance of the theater release:
“We want people to go to the theater, by the way, we want people to go to the theater because it’s so important, particularly for this kind of film that’s against the grain to demonstrate that it can do well at the box office, so we’re not done with that by any means.”

My husband and I actually went out to our local theater to watch the film, yesterday afternoon, and while I think D’Souza gives Barack Obama Senior way too much credit in forming the younger Obama’s worldview than I would, it’s an important film, and one I strongly recommend. If you haven’t seen it yet, go see it while it’s still in theaters, and take an independent or open minded Democrat with you. The scene in which D’Souza speaks with Paul Kengor, the author of The Communist, the definitive biography on Obama’s mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, should be a deal breaker for any potential Obama voter who loves his country.
Father Z, in a post about Obama’s creepy new flag, recommended D’Souza’s book, The Roots of Obama’s Rage.
That’s what the Obama campaign is offering you: empty visual rhetoric harking to his prediction of the end of global warming and the rolling back of the oceans, or whatever that hogwash was. This is the same guy who, having been honored at Notre Dame, promised to seek common ground with the Church. This is the same gay, aggressively pro-abortion and even pro-infanticide, who lied to Card. Dolan.
Who is this guy? Have you read Dinesh D’Souza’s The Roots of Obama’s Rage? (UK HERE and KINDLE). And Jerome Corsi’s $2.99 Kindle book: Saul Alinsky:The Evil Genius Behind Obama. And Hugh Hewitt’s book The Brief Against Obama: The Rise, Fall & Epic Fail of the Hope & Change Presidency.
And the first comment is one I could have written myself (typos in all).
The pretender president is doing everything we could ask him to in terms of not getting re-elected. He flaunts his narcissism, demonstrates his ineptness when it comes to foreign policy, insults and endangers Israel, continues to destroy the economy, etc etc. Yet surveys and polls show this race to be extremely close and, most disturbing, show that he still retains a high percentage of “catholic” votes. One must wonder why. Is it the entitlement mentality which has swept this once self sufficient nation? Is it the silence of Church leaders when CINO’s mouth heresy in support of this obamination of a leader? Have we desended into the same sort of complacency that allowed Hitler to rise to power? Is it a combination of all of the above? All I know is it is time for intense prayer because the futue of the country depends on a regime change after the November election.
We know that the polls are skewed in Obama’s favor – but this thing shouldn’t even be remotely close. It should be a blowout.
For me – the greatest disappointment I ever experienced in politics was in the American electorate in 1992. I felt that we citizens knew enough about “Slick Willie’s” character that he should never have been elected. I was sick when I woke up, that Wednesday morning after the election. Even sicker than I felt in 2008 because we so saw that one coming. I don’t know how I’m going to feel, this November if the Chicago Jesus manages to squeak this one out. I’m past despairing for my fellow countrymen. Now I despair for my children.

The movie showed up on YouTube over the weekend as rumors spread it would also be shown free on the Fox News Channel.
The filmmakers behind 2016: Obama’s America are claiming a coordinated attack engineered by supporters of Barack Obama to suppress the box-office results of the movie, which is a critical look at the president.
But but but but… “we were just trying to get the word out”, say conservatives who participated in the attack by watching and sharing online.
