Death of a Nation

From American Thinker:
Unsurprisingly, Dinesh D'Souza's film Death of a Nation has made the loud voices on the left stark raving mad.  A perfect example is the film review website Rotten Tomatoes.  The eleven critics gave the film a zero.  The voting audience gave it 90% approval.  The same is true at all the typically left-wing sites that review films. 

The Hollywood Reporter reviewer, Frank Scheck, was apoplectic.  He does not bother to provide any countervailing facts.  He cannot.  D'Souza's history is accurate.  But reviewers like Scheck are so committed to the lies they have been taught in college, or maybe J-school, for forty years that they leap to histrionic attacks on the film before bothering to do any research. The hysterical reaction to this film by the left is yet another sad commentary on the state of American education.  The film is thoughtful and balanced.  Unlike privileged film reviewers like Scheck, D'Souza, an immigrant from India, sees so clearly what is great about America.  He is grateful that it is his country now.
