“Love Him, Hate Him, You Don’t Know Him,” reads the tagline on the movie poster for “2016: Obama’s America.” The documentary, which many regard as being anti-President Barrack Obama, has become the year’s best-selling documentary, and by raking in $6.2 million in its first weekend, it ranked No. 8 at the box office.

The film was directed by John Sullivan and Indian-American conservative author Dinesh D’Souza, whose book, “The Roots of Obama’s Rage,” intends to present the realization of Obama’s America, as is also presented in this film. The film conjectures what issues the world will face if Obama wins in 2012.

D’Souza features in a clip talking with the President’s half-brother, George Obama, who lives in poverty in Africa, and claims to choose to live in such poverty to identify with the people he loves. He doesn’t seek his brother’s help because Barack Obama “has a family of his own. I am of older age. I can help myself.” This might not have helped D’Souza’s thesis, which aims primarily to suggest Obama was influenced by his absentee father.


“This philandering, inebriated African socialist, who raged against the world for denying him the realization of his anti-colonial ambitions, is now setting the nations agenda through reincarnation of his dreams in his son,” D’Souza’s book reads. This, he says, is the root of his anger.

The thesis of the book and the movie is that Obama learned his anti-colonialist, anti-American, anti-Western, anti-capitalist views from his African father, and this despite the fact that his father was absent. The thesis seems surprising to many who view most of Obama’s views to be more consonant with the sorts of left-winged liberals he met at the ivy league schools he’s participated with over the years, and his political stance does not differ greatly from, say, Hillary Clinton’s.

The claim that after four years of watching every word and action of Obama we “Don’t know him,” also seems strange, and many critics of the film have questioned its accuracy in many regards.
