When Dinesh D’Souza’s anti-Obama crap fest, 2016 Obama’s America, hit theaters earlier this year, rabid Republicans heralded it as the much-anticipated holy grail of truth about their favorite Kenyan born Muslim President.
Passed around in tea party circles and playing nationally in theaters for almost a whole day, the film enjoyed a small but loyal following made up almost entirely of Fox News viewers. Soon after Fox quit talking about it, the film vanished from sight, till today.
Much as the fall brings autumn leaves and snow (at least here in the north), it also brings awards season and those in the film community begin jockeying for consideration for the Granddaddy of all awards, The Academy Award.
Since D’Souza’s 2016 took in a whopping $33.4 million dollars during its entire theatrical run, a figure that most films can take almost a whole week to accumulate, the decision was made to ship it out to the Academy for consideration.
It was denied; the cause? You guessed it, liberal conspiracy.
“2016 loses an opportunity to compete in what most always perceived to be a fair business atmosphere. But no way, it is totally unbalanced and unfair… The left rules – for now!” exclaims producer Gerald Molen.
Apparently, just saying something is true now makes it the truth, and according to Dan Gainor, VP of Business and Culture at the Media Research Institute:
“Hollywood is seldom just about money. It’s about propaganda. And if you defy the party line, you stand no chance of winning. So when Dinesh D’Souza’s movie got passed over, I wasn’t even vaguely surprised.” He goes on to explain, “Is that bias? Of course. Jack Nicholson was close: Hollywood can’t handle the truth. And they can’t handle disagreement. Their one-sided view of what deserves awards underlines that.”
There you have it, fellow liberals, 2016 Obama’s America has the distinct honor of being the first film to not get an Academy Award nomination because of a vast political conspiracy.
It will, however, not be the first film to get passed over because it stinks.
