WATCH: Dinesh D’Souza discusses controversy surrounding his new book and film

The release of conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza’s latest book and film, America: Imagine a World Without Her, has not been without controversy. After the film received tremendous critical acclaim – including an impressive A+ rating from CinemaScore – and the book debuted on the New York Times bestseller list, Costco made headlines for pulling the book from its shelves. According to reports, the second largest U.S. retailer has since reversed that decision after feeling the heat from customers and the media.

On radio this morning, D’Souza joined Glenn to discuss his latest work and the reaction it has received. Is the United States truly in a downward spiral, or is the best still yet to come?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

One of the most interesting elements of D’Souza’s new work is the perspective it offers. D’Souza highlights the viewpoints of the most anti-American and the most patriotic Americans you can find, and it is that dichotomy that helps ground the film.

“I realized that there’s this powerful critique of America. I call it ‘America the inexcusable,’” D’Souza explained. “It’s being taught in our schools and colleges. It’s spilled out in Hollywood and the media. It’s espoused by Obama. And I thought… I’m going to get these guys and I’m going to let them rail against America. I’m going to have them explore the consequences of their beliefs.”

At one point, D’Souza asks radical political activist Ward Churchill if he would liken the United States to Nazi Germany, and if he would drop an atomic bomb on the country. It is seeing the way Churchill pauses and contemplates the scenario that is particularly fascinating.

“It’s remarkable to see that these are people in America who hated America, and they are not marginal people. They are writing textbooks. They have powerful influence in government,” D’Souza said. “So this becomes a film that is a moral defense of America and the free market system against these powerful leftists… who now control the commanding heights of our culture and our politics.”

Earlier this week, Glenn spoke about his experience this Fourth of July. While he is typically the guy who cries at the fireworks display, he did not feel that connection this year. Pat agreed, as did several other members of TheBlaze staff. D’Souza explained this project tackles those feelings.

“I think, Glenn, that there is a natural patriotism that beats in the breast of Americans. It’s been suppressed, derided, insulted and beaten down. And it’s, and that’s happened with political motive,” he said. “What I want to do in this film is I want to expose and refute this leftist critique. I want to show that the American history that it’s based upon is selective and distorted – and deliberately so. Finally, I want to affirm people’s patriotism so that they fall in love with America all over again, and their motivated to do more to defend and protect the American Dream.”

Much like Glenn, D’Souza believes in order to “restore America,” we must first teach the “story of America.” A generation of students is now being raised to believe a very different version of history than that of their parents and grandparents. That trend must stop.

“The leftist narrative of America [is] highly distorted,” D’Souza said. “It leaves about 80% of America’s history out. So we can’t restore America without telling the new story of America, in which we expose these lies about America.”

Ultimately, D’Souza hopes that this project will begin to inspire the American people again.

“Well, the last film 2016 was a little bit of a horror film, and it did leave some people feeling kind of stunned and depressed like, ‘Oh my God’ what have we done,” he concluded. “But the new film, America, is not a depressing film. It’s a hopeful film. It’s energizing. It will help… people fall in love with America.”

  • Glenn Coughlin

    D’Souza’s latest actions show that he is a hypocrite. Instead of accepting the fact that one store chain, Costco, chose to pull his book after a month of piss poor sales,
    D’Souza goes to the crazy right wingers yo cry and whine. That doesn’t sound American to me.
    I also loved the inclusion of Glenn’s little story about the Fourth. I’d like to believe it, but glenn lies and cries so much that this little tale sounds fabricated.

  • landofaahs

    Yes it’s time for Glenn to promote D’Sous’s book so he can return the favor when Glenn comes out with his next one. One hand washes the other. It’s a cozy club that edges out others who may have even better points to make. Now I realize how it works and I know the cash register hums for these people and that’s okay. But I just wonder what book writers on both sides would do if we were all in agreement and stoking the fires of political passion did not sell books. I mean can you see Glenn actually working at a real job? But every carnival needs it’s barker.

    Anyone that has ever been involved with book sales should know that when a movie connected to the book comes out sales will be generated. The timing of Costco to pull the book is not sensible from a business standpoint at all. Photos of their book sections with just a hole in the spot where that book was leads to the questioning of their claim that it was lack of sales and space that caused the removal.

    What is wrong with helping a friend sell a book? Especially, when the book and film have a message you agree with. Costco made a mistake when it pulled the book. Since the film was just getting advertised, there would be a small delay in demand for the book. It will sell well now. A good profit from supporting America is a wonderful thing. Americans need to get educated in the truth.

    Leftist hate the truth. When asked for why they hate so much, they will evade the answer and launch an attack on the messenger. Conservatives love to hear from all sides on an issue. That way they learn what the enemy camp is thinking. Liberals are not the loyal opposition, they are tyrants waiting to pounce.

  • Anonymous

    What is wrong with Glenn doing what he does? He found his place, and has done well with his efforts. Unlike the leftist radio hosts, he is much more polite and usually much more truthful. Leftist willingly lie, whereas most conservatives sometime make an error. Intentionally spreading falsehoods, is wrong. making an error is human.

    Dinesh’s book is a treasure trove of historical, economic and political facts. D’Sousa will go down in history as one of the most influential scholars of our time. But the fact that his primary influence is to restore pride and patriotism to our land is his most laudable achievement. Thank you Mr. D’Souza, I salute you! I’ll have to get up out of the armchair to go see the movie also.

  • Lit’l Blue Bird

    The book had and has great sales numbers; much higher than Clinton’s book. It continues on the best seller list while Hillary’s book ratings have caved, although her book has not been pulled. Costco didn’t like the story D’Souza was telling, pure and simple

    Apparently, you missed the fact that D’Souza didn’t even know the book had been pulled. When customers went to Costco to purchase it, they were told that it had been pulled. Common sense provided the reason – and the rest is history. Conservatives are now on alert for any of these leftist stunts, any unlike the leftists, they don’t get all hissy fitted, they take pointed and immediate action.

  • landofaahs

    Apparently you missed the point. The point is that Glenn promotes D’Souza’s work and in return D’Souza will someday promote Glenn’s work. So now Costco will suddenly have the books which you Beckbots will spend your hard earned money on and Costco will get richer, D’Souza will get richer and later Glenn will get richer. But you my friend will be poorer because you wasted money on a book which contains information you already knew….unless you were a dumbass.

    You have to be a big looser otherwise will not be writing so much garbage. Costco CEO is a big contributor to the Democrats. After thousand of complaints they came out with the stupid excuse that they took the book for lack of sale. That is another Radical lie addressed to brainless people.

    Nice way to put it. What most of these left thinking people are told is only hate and destruction, they have no solutions for what they say they rebel against. That is typical satan’s sin nature. The thief only comes to steal, kill and destroy. That’s the part that makes no sense in the equation, there is no good end plan ever. Sin is never satisfied, all it knows is destruction. If you ask these supposedly very smart hip folks the answer is the same, I don’t know, they never have an answer. I’m saddened daily when I talk to young people infected with this poison, they have no vision of the future except all has been the same and all will be the same. Very strange mind set. The Bible says the god of this world blinds the minds of the unbeliever. I can clearly see that everyday.
    If you haven’t seen the movie, please do it’s excellent. It shows “all” the “true history” of the America and the world.

    My husband and I went to see “AMERICA” and when it was over, The Theatre Audience stood and applauded.
    At the beginning of the movie, the message was confusing, but by the end of The Movie The message was crystal clear.
    I won’t give it away, because I came from A Suburb of Boston Ma., where History was fed to me growing up.
    When I was born, I lived in a house at The bottom of a hill, where; what they called “THE PROSPECT HILL TOWER” stood.
    One of The battles of The Revolutionary War, took place on the same ground, where I lived.
    When I was a toddler, (My playground) was on and around that tower, climbing the stairs and walls around The Giant Castle called; “THE PROSPECT HILL TOWER”.
    Our First American Flag was put atop of that tower.
    Research: Somerville, Massachusetts; “PROSPECT HILL TOWER” (REVOLUTION WAR)……….
    Over the years I’ve watched the change in “THE AMERICAN DREAM” Erode.
    Because of my Strong “PATRIOTIC” background, I was becoming despondent.
    The Movie renewed the “PRIDE” I’ve always had, ten fold.
    I’m impressed with Dinesh D’Souza, An Immigrant who came from a Country, (INDIA), that if you were born into a certain Class of people, you stayed in that Class, there was no hope of change.
    Dinesh has shown his love for this county, appreciating what we have here and has put his life and career on the line for, What we Natural Born American Citizens, take for granted.
    What does that say about U.S. Citizens who have totally neglected The Greatest Country on Earth???………..
    GO SEE THE MOVIE “AMERICA”…
    P.S.
    I LOVED “2016 OBAMA’S AMERICA, THE MOVIE” IT TOLD THE TRUTH……..

    I can agree with that but my point is that all of that information can be found on the internet for free. why would you want to make others rich and yourself poorer? I don’t care if you buy his book or 10,000 other books. The point is that WE have a government that is for sale at the highest bidder. We need to denut the federal government and their power over us and that cannot be done by the people we elect to represent us while they have a vested interest in keeping the system going. Just like the book writers need the opposition to sell their own wares to the public. No decent conservative would waste money buying info he already knows unless he is benefitting someone for it. Look at it this way. When we are all in heaven, what could Glenn possibly do but complain about how things are being run and how we somehow need to do things his way. Controversy. Chaos. Satan. That is what the world of Satan thrives on.

    Dinesh has been targeted by people like yourself because what he writes is true and NO Liberal can refute what he writes. Liberals can argue, target, defame, and try to destroy Dinesh BUT those arguments NEVER hold any merit!

    Costco’s co-founder is a uber Liberal supporter of Obama contributing close to $100,000 to Obama’s campaign so it’s a known fact pulling Dinesh’s book was purely political. It was only after scores of members threatening to cancel their memberships that Costco started selling his book again.

    Pulling Dinesh’s book had NOTHING to do with “piss poor sales” but it had everything to do with a “piss poor decision” by Costco.

    A slogan? How about a snapshot, and some name calling.
    The left loves to reduce people and situations to a single snapshot, and a slogan. I like to examine things in a little more depth. So, interviewing real people about real events that happened over a span of 200 years+ sounds like something for more interesting than the standard leftist snapshot and slogan.

    Yes. If democrats were like JFK, we would be much better off. Too bad the dems are more like Teddy Kennedy. There is nowhere in New England that attracts me. Limited freedoms, high taxes, high cost of living and lots of people. Rural or small town life is better for ones health. Less hassles, where all you have to deal with is less traffic and shorter waiting lines.

    Mike, So many people on the left have never served and view those that do or have as inferiors. They think anyone in the military is under-educated and only joined out of desperation. Leftist don’t understand patriotism and love of country. I always claimed I was a draft dodger, as I enlisted twice. My generation either was a John Wayne inspired patriot, or a traitor. I see no honor in those that say their protests were brave.

    I suspect it will go away at sentencing. It was a political indictment. In the end it was a paperwork misdemeanor of petty proportions. Like a speeding ticket for doing 7 over the limit. At least that is all it should be. or Al Gore would have gone to prison for using the nuns to do the same thing.

  • Anonymous

    Yes he did. Al Gore used nuns to do this and he wasn’t arrested. D’Souza made two such contributions, while over 20 nuns did it for Gore. I don’t think he will go to prison, and I expect the charge will be reduced at the September 23 sentencing. If the judge applies the law sending him to jail, it will be a failure of the system.

    OK, D’Souza did take a felony plea. I was previously led to believe he had pled it down to a minor misdemeanor. It appears to be a felony -and for his sake I hope it is a deferred sentence, being reduced to a minor charge. If not a felony like this should not hold such punitive measures. It is politics as usual. Getting a felony record for such silliness is wrong, especially when the democrats do it daily. It Detracts from his great film work. But DSouza is an American hero for doing a good job of exposing Obama and his lackies.

  • Anonymous

    Do I understand you give H. Clinton a pass because she is a former First Lady. Well, I cannot do so because her history reveals she has always been involved in nefarious activities.

    Sorry you cannot see the correlation. Must be a H Clinton lemming. But you are right about Costco being the criminal here not carrying America and still continue to carry H Clintons diatribe book that try so desperately to cover-up her misdeeds in Benghazi. But the first amendment will prevail unless you are a Democrat. Oh a Democrat will say but look at all the evil Republicans. Well let me say this, yes there are those evil Republicans also and it prevails in politics throughout. But I always say two wrongs do not make a right.

    But with your comment “you will never know”, the thought processes must end there also. There are more than one criminal involved here especially when it comes to politics. The Dems are all involved in criminality in case you have not noticed. But that is the way they can proceed without any hinderance. NWO, enslavement, gun control, or any excuse that one can think of to take away another’s freedoms.

    That is the difference between an honest person and a dishonest one. An honest person will own up to their mistakes, pay the price and move on and a dishonest person will always continue to lie, cheat, evade, and as long as they do not confess no one will ever be the wiser.

    As far as the Costco CEO not breaking any laws, well hinderance of the 1st Amendment is breaking a law.

    When you send a post to me and are using the word “you”, I can only assume that you are referring to me personally. In the future you can reduce the confusion by using the word “democrats” instead of “you”. I don’t mind conservatives sticking together and I would prefer separating from the liberals. But carnival barkers on both sides disgust me. If we could divide the country from the conservatives and the liberals and live in separate peace, how many so-called conservatives like Beck would go along with that? Beck would be off the air without the controversy. He and the others need controversy to exist.

    The “America” movie was awesome and told by someone who knows a different culture from a different country. Those of us who grew up in this great nation, don’t know what we have until we see it slipping away by those who wish to destroy it. Dinesh did a fine job explaining away the lies we’re being told and the lies being told to our children. Tell the real story of history in our schools and colleges and we’ll turn this country around little by little.

    You are correct. I live in the Portland area and have lived in Oregon all my life, so I have watched go from very humble Christian roots to the far left it is today. Washington is the same story.

    Dear Lord, I wish it were that simple. You really are out there. When are you and millions of others both sides going to man up and take a stand for righteousness and live it. ? I’m so tired of hearing arm chair barkers like you that do nothing about the problem. You sit around making judgment calls on the rest of us instead of cleaning up your on heart and life and taking a stand for what’s right. It will require getting off your behind and making a commitment to yourself, your countrymen and God.
    Setting in your comfortable desk and wondering why no one takes care of it for you, is what is wrong with this country. That’s how the evil got us here. Speak out with only truth and commitment no matter whose toes you step on.
    God Bless Glenn Beck for taking a stand. Getting right with God and taking stand is scary stuff, but we confront now or when they have us locked in the camps. We will have to confront them sooner or later. Have a Blessed Day

    “They” the leftist often use these forums to do a “study” for college papers. They will provoke racism and controversy trying to harvest the most obnoxious retorts, and claim those views represent the entire “right wing”. I was on a newspaper board, where one of the fellow board members was doing a similar study. She was native American and wanted to draw out racist white guys. It was all for her masters degree from The Evergreen State University. She was a genuine nut. I later responded to her home for a domestic violence call. She was a hoarder, and there were trails through the house, with rotting food all around. Her daughter had a neat and clean room. I helped the husband move out. He thought I was there to “beat him up” as three other officers had done two weeks earlier. He was shocked that I would take the time to carry furniture all while I didn’t pepper spray him. I find many leftists to have similar thinking – something has to be wrong with them to hold such un-American thinking.

    A private person or company can inhibit the first amendment. A government can’t. So it really isn’t unlawful for Costco to make a business decision. Now Obama may have wanted it off the shelves and his leaches could have dropped a word on the CEO. I think it was just stupid business.

    Don’t get too worked up about a New World Order as we get one every few months. What Obama-ites want is a One World Government. That wouldn’t be too bad if they had and followed our constitution. As you know, no other nation has the rights Americans enjoy. Natural rights that today are trampled upon by ignorant politicians. If we could get uniform application of the bill of rights, we would be a better nation. New England and California would have to restore rights, and that just doesn’t come natural to leftist.

    You can’t be that stupid.

I’m sorry people like you feel the need to denigrate everything that’s good about this country and want to take it down.

    Since you don’t even know who I am, how in the world could you possibly make that statement? How would you know what I do or don’t do? If you are worried about being locked up for being a Christian, writing books and making movies aren’t going to help. Prayer is more effective than wasting time fattening the pockets of people who have body guards around them because they are too frightened to defend themselves.

    The reason for the “carnival barkers” as you insist on calling them like Beck is because the liberal controlled media hides the truth from the Americans, Not only are they hiding the truth but they are also rewriting history. Hence the movie like America. I received an email just now and it stated how 8th graders in California do not believe in the holocaust but it is a hoax. Hmm I wonder where they got that idea from? Certainly not those that served OR FOUGHT or died. You act like Beck is there for the controversy but I say he is there because of the hiding of the truth.

Question is Comcast helping our government & obama progressives to take away & to silence our rights of freedom of speech in our homes by sneaky backdoor methods ???????? Our President and the progressive are setting up a system to spy on U.S citizens with these devices ??!! They are a modern day version of German brainwash youths groups of pre World War Two in spying on their parents and reporting and turning them in to the German secret Police for punishment for not being in lock step with Hitler !!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just a short footnote to last week’s brouhaha over Costco pulling the book from stores, they put the book back in and it sold out almost immediately. It sold out and was unavailable in BJ’s. BJ’s had a quite a few copies of Hillary’s book and Costco had tons of Hillary’s book, not selling. I bought one of two of the last copies in Costco yesterday,(Sunday)of “America”, anxious to read it now. I will cancel my membership at Costco now that I realize they are major Left-wing contributors and hypocrites. At least BJ’s has the good sense to be fair with equal contributions and censorship.
