New movie about Obama coming out in July — from the producer of Schindler’s List

This quote is from an article which you can read in full here:

“2016 Obama’s America” is coming from Gerald Molen, the Academy Award-winning producer of “Schindler’s List,” whose new project is based on Dinesh D’Souza’s bestselling book “The Roots of Obama’s Rage.” […]

“….So I read Dinesh D’Souza’s book ‘The Roots of Obama’s Rage,’ and then Dinesh and I teamed up on this thing with some other great people and we just want to get the story out there out on what we feel America will look like in 2016 if, in fact, President Obama gets elected into a second term.”

Molen’s in-depth research on “Schindler’s List” also helped him decide to make “2016.” After all, people of goodwill must know history to avoid loss of liberty and further tragedy, and he had discovered that many history books reduced the Nazi holocaust to a merely paragraph, if they mentioned it at all.

Now, as Americans and billions of people around the world suffer many crises, Molen believes he shouldn’t neglect the opportunity to open the eyes of American voters.

As he put it: “At least ‘Schindler’s List’ kind of opened the floodgates and got the information out.”

It’s true, Schindler’s List opened the floodgates.  I saw the film in 1993, the year that it came out.  At that time, I knew nothing about the Holocaust.  I was confused by the film. There is a scene in Schindler’s List where a group of Jewish women are in the shower at Auschwitz, and water comes out.  The women were overjoyed because they thought that they were going to be gassed.

I was totally confused by the scene in the shower.  What was Spielberg trying to say?  That there were no gas chambers?  And the Jews were really given a shower when they arrived at Auschwitz, not gassed?

It was the movie Schindler’s List that prompted me to start studying the Holocaust.  I wrote about the movie Schindler’s List on my website here.

Spielberg is an Obama supporter.  According to the article, “Spielberg has given $100,000 to a pro-Obama political action committee, $35,800 to the Obama Victory Fund 2012 and, as Bloomberg Businessweek revealed, he advised the Obama re-election campaign to attack GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney’s work at Bain Capital.”

Now Molen “believes he shouldn’t neglect the opportunity to open the eyes of American voters.”

I am looking forward to seeing this movie and learning the secrets of Obama’s past.  I just hope that there are no scenes of Obama shooting people from a balcony at the White House, as in the Spielberg film Schindler’s List which has a scene where Amon Goeth is shooting prisoners from his “White House.”

The main point that was hammered home in the film Schindler’s List is that there was absolutely no higher authority over the concentration camps.  The SS men who ran the camps could do anything they wanted, with absolutely no consequences.  They could beat the prisoners with 100 strokes from a whip, or they could shoot prisoners for sport.

The fact that Amon Goeth was arrested by Dr. Konrad Morgen who did a six-month investigation of him is not mentioned at all in the film.  Suddenly, Goeth is gone, and there is no mention of his absence in the film.

The idea that the concentration camps were not controlled by the Nazi government is what most Americans now believe, thanks to the film Schindler’s List.
