LOS ANGELES, California — The DVD for Dinesh D’Souza’s America: Imagine the World Without Her is being released on Tuesday on Amazon–strategically done just one week before America will be heading to the polls to vote in the November 4 midterm elections.
In an exclusive telephone interview with Breitbart News, D’Souza explained his plans for taking America‘s message across the nation as a mobilizing and educational tool, and revealed several new undertakings that he says will sweep America’s political and cultural landscape by storm.
He said America is strategic in fostering a movement from U.S. citizens to create the type of change the nation needs in order to recover from the last six years of damage wrought by the Obama Administration.
America leaves you worried but also energized and motivated to do more. This movie is a really good motivator for the election. Midterm elections are not won by converting some fabled, independent voter. They’re won by motivating and mobilizing your own team. And this is an inspiring film that could help motivate people to get out and cast their votes this election season… by promoting that civic duty.
Due to his court-ordered confinement and eight-month travel ban, D’Souza conducted the interview from San Diego, where he will be serving out the remaining seven months of his term. “I’m going to come off the matt in a very surprising way. Instead of being beaten down by all of this, I’m going to be energized by it,” he said.
D’Souza noted that in addition to the large turnout America had in theaters, it’s “a film that’s perfectly suited to be shown to the family at home.” America has already been listed as the #1 documentary film on Amazon and has been ranked as the #6 political documentary of all time.
As for the future of the country itself, D’Souza had this to say:
There’s a spirit of 1776 that has built America up and a spirit of 1968 that is pulling us down. And it’s really a matter of which spirit will triumph in the long term. Obama is very much a creation of the spirit of 1968. The immigrants he wants to bring to America reflect that spirit; they want to sit in the bandwagon, not pull the bandwagon. The fate of America depends ultimately on which course we opt for.
An immigrant himself, D’Souza explained that “This is not a case of being pro or anti-immigration. We, [in the Republican Party], are in favor of more immigrants who will pull the bandwagon and less in favor of those who will simply sit in the bandwagon. We want to attract immigrants who believe in the American dream.”
He noted that based on his experience, he has realized that “the natural instinct of these immigrants is very much to become part of America. And to work in America, and to contribute to America, and to assimilate to America. At least, that’s what the people in my class want to do,” he said, noting that almost all of his students are of Mexican ethnicity.
As part of his court-ordered sentencing, D’Souza is co-teaching English to mostly Spanish-speaking adults. “The funny thing about this is that while I’m teaching English, I’m learning Spanish,” explaining that as the woman he co-teaches the class with translates from Spanish to English for the students, he is picking up certain words and phrases as well.
D’Souza added that he has begun the undertaking of a philanthropic, two-year project that he is developing to take America across the nation and show it to millions of young people, beginning upon the completion of his confinement in May 2015.
Additionally, D’Souza said he is, in fact, working on another film for the 2016 election year, which he has already begun. “I’m putting the elements together for the film, which will come out in the summer of 2016.” He explained that the new film, like his earlier two, will include a great deal of “hidden knowledge” as, he dubs it–information that the world did not necessarily know about..
“Showing you stuff that is true, indisputable, and yet is not somehow in the public domain,” he said. “And I certainly want to do that again with new information in my next film.”
