Obama’s America by Dinesh D’Souza

51vtJqdbtIL._SX339_BO1,204,203,200_Best-selling author D’Souza has written Obama’s America as a companion to his popular documentary film 2016: Obama’s America and a followup to his 2010 book The Roots of Obama’s Rage.  D’Souza was a White House policy analyst for President Reagan and considers himself the only conservative scholar who truly understands President Obama.  This is because they were both born in the same year and are essentially first-generation Americans who were raised with an identical world view.  That world view is anti-colonialism.  D’Souza explains its precepts and shows how it was the dream Obama inherited from his father.  He interviews Obama’s family members from Kenya to learn more about Obama, Sr.  He also  researches Obama’s radical mentors to find what he has learned from them.  Most importantly, the book examines each of President Obama’s policies from the perspective of anti-colonialism and discusses how they contribute to his goal of transforming America.  Reading this book after the election will give Republicans a sinking feeling, and some Democrats may be hard-pressed to rationalize their mindsets with anti-colonialism.  Anyone who has read the first book and seen the movie will find nothing new here, but those who are new to D’Souzas’s theory will come away enlightened.
