Readers, frankly I’m stunned. On Monday I wrote this simple post with the list of theaters in Maryland where Dinesh D’Souza’s Obama 2016 movie will be premiering tomorrow, and hundreds of google searches are ending up at that post. The searches are variations on the theme—where can I see 2016 in Maryland?
Surely you all remember what happened a few weeks ago when hundreds of thousands of Americans descended on the fast food restaurant Chick-fil-A to support free speech and show appreciation for a businessman not afraid to stand up for what he believes. Looking around the restaurant that day, I thought how inspiring, surely no one there was looking for a fast lunch, but rather they were all there to send a message to Washington and for the camaraderie of sharing some time with like-minded Americans.
Although there are many theaters and many show times so the crowd affect won’t be as great, nevertheless, Marylanders should plan to see 2016 this weekend to learn information the media has kept from you (or never bothered to find) and to send a message to Washington.
I think D’Souza just may rival Michael Moore’s success on the other side for ‘documentary’ as another means of sending a political message. The film is already climbing the charts as we learned from the Huffington Post, here, where writer Cavan Sieczkowski sniffs in the final line:
With a budget of $2.5 million, the documentary has yet to break even after six weekends. Despite climbing the box office ranks, “2016: Obama’s America” is no blockbuster yet.
Let’s make it a blockbuster and send Washington (and Annapolis!) another message!
