Rush Limbaugh: "America" Earns A+ Like "Titanic," "Schindler’s List"

Rush Limbaugh discussed America on the air Tuesday following the Costco story and the success of the movie in the theaters.

Transcript originally published at

RUSH: You know, moviegoers today still get to grade movies that they see in theaters. If you live in or around some of the bigger cities in the country, you may get somebody approaching you as you leave the theater. They got a clipboard and they ask you to give the movie that you just saw a grade, like in school, an A, B, C+, whatever. A company doing this asks you just as you are leaving the theater, while it’s fresh in your mind and whatever emotional experience you’ve had is right at the top of your mind. Now, the company that does this, that collects these grades is called CinemaScope.

In the last 29 years, while they have been taking post-movie surveys, only 52 movies have gotten an A+, in the last 29 years. So that’s not even two a year. Only 52 movies have gotten an A+. Titanic was one. The King’s Speech was another. Did you see that movie? Colin Firth is the stuttering King George, the father of the current queen. Driving Miss Daisy got an A+. Forrest Gump got an A+. What is so funny about Driving Miss Daisy getting an A+? Oh, yeah, our parody, Driving Miss Nancy. Dances with Wolves got an A+. Schindler’s List got an A+. Gandhi got an A+.

The machete movies did not. It’s where Obama is today. He’s fundraising for the director of the machete movies.

Now, this past weekend another movie got an A+. And that movie is America, by Dinesh D’Souza. So Dinesh D’Souza, his movie America, is one of the 52 movies in the last 29 years to get an A+ by actual moviegoers surveyed leaving the theater. Martha Raddatz was on the ABC Sunday show this weekend talking about the movie, and she said, paraphrasing, “You know, I saw this movie… I don’t know, you know, but I think everybody should see it. It’s really — I think everybody should see it.” It’s clearly presented a perspective that she as a journalist found entirely foreign, which is sad, but she was still moved by it and recommend that everybody see it.

It’s a movie that posits the notion that America’s history is being replaced by another version. The moviemakers feature a half a dozen outspoken people that would tell you everything we’ve done wrong as a nation. In fact, that’s how it opens. You might say, “What am I doing here? I don’t want to hear this.” Stick with it, folks. And then the movie defines what makes our nation so special, the idea of America. The notion that this nation’s creation is one-of-a-kind, built entirely upon man’s freedoms, unique in world history and what makes our nation great. And then asks, what would the world be like without America?

Audiences stand up and cheer. Some audiences feel compelled to sing the National Anthem at the end of it. It’s no wonder it’s getting an A+ from those who see it. Find America: Imagine The World Without Her in a theater near you this week. It’s building the number of theaters as the weeks go by. It has the same trajectory as its predecessor, 2016, the first Dinesh D’Souza movie. It started out in a small number theaters and then just grew by word-of-mouth, and the same thing is happening here. America: Imagine The World Without Her. It’ll be at a theater near you. See it.

    Re: We ‘all’ NEED CHOICE to CHOOSE – D’Souza’s ‘America’…

    Dear Sirs.,

    We were ‘both’ Raised to Believe that America represents ‘Choice’
    and the Ability to Differentiate in order to make Wise and Important Decisions based
    on our Ability to Choose.

    You have Removed this/our Ability to do so by Removing ‘Our Choice’
    from your Stores and Solely Based upon ‘your’ Opinion.

    Having Removed our Choice which America ‘had’ Represented, we
    have ‘Chosen’ to BOYCOTT ‘Any and All’ of your Stores by the Masses and Supporters of ‘Freedom to Choose’ as to Send ‘you’ the People’s Message of Choice.

    It Deeply Saddens me to Believe that you have Compromised what
    America Once Stood for. ‘Freedom of Choice’.

    This eMail is Scheduled to go to All Available and Related Published Media by means of our Marketing Agent in so that ‘We the People’ are Assured the Right to Maintain our ‘Right to Choose’…

    Having said, I don’t know what all of you had Told the Heads of Costco but whatever it was, they Listened…

    KUDOS Everyone. Freedom Reins…

    Hay Doug T (July 9, 2014 at 11:15 am) who wrote, ” I’ve not seen any evidence whatsoever in this instance or any others that would even hint at a political motivation of any kind in running their business or making tactical decisions.”

    …hint at a political motivation.! Than you must not have read this… Sinegal spoke at the Democratic National Convention in 2012, which nominated President Obama for a second term. Costco has given $100,000 to Obama and another $100,000 to Priorities USA, the pro-Obama super PAC. Sinegal was the author of an email blast sent out by the Obama campaign in July 2012. Obama also held a fundraiser at Sinegal’s house in Seattle, during which the incumbent president said “the story of Costco and everything that you guys have done I think is representative of what America is all about.”

    Obama has unnecessarily apprised America of his Narcissistic ‘Confessed’ Insecurities. This is who ‘America’ Voted for..? As George Bush, Jr. once said, “Fool me Once, Shame on me. Fool me Twice, Shame on me – Twice.” Meaning, We’re All Idiots for Voting for an Idiot.

    This week, I took my apolitical, albeit conservative, wife to see “America”. I loved the movie, but what I was more impressed with, was the reaction of my wife, who’s eyes axiomatically gloss over at the mention of politics. Its a look I’ve become very familiar with over the last 35 years. (She pretended to be interested for a few years… but that dried up a LOoong time ago.)

    She was enthralled with the movie. She loved it. She was raised when American history and civics were an axiomatic in US Education. And while she had no idea who Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky and Saul Alinsky are, she is quite familiar with the lies which has emanated from them throughout her life.

    She immediately understood the point and was very psyched about seeing it debunked.

    Every American needs to see that movie, so that they can get it to their US Citizen neighbors, either through direct showing of one fact at a time. It’s a game changer.

    OH! Another thing I wanted to mention… We saw the movie as the “SilverSpot” theater in Naples. I bought the tickets on-line, when we showed we picked up the tickets, bought the snacks and headed in, pausing only to show the stubs to the gal… she told us that our movie was showing in ‘Theater 6’.

    So, we walked on into Theater 6. First clue was that our rows, for our pre-ordered seats was full. Which was odd, but we just went up a row and sat down.

    the second clue which I didn’t pick up on at all, was that when we got there, (we were sitting down roughly 10 minutes after the designated start time) was that what I thought was the movie, was a trailer for “America”. I wondered why someone would run a trailer for the movie we’re about to watch, but… who pays attention to that sort of thing… . Several other trailers came and went and the movie ‘Chef’ came slidin’ right in and I realized that our movie was NOT in theater 6.

    We turned on a cell phone, checked the tickets and saw that the movie was in theater 3… got up and went to theater 3.

    Not sure if it was an inadvertent mistake, but thought it funny. We didn’t say anything to anyone, but enjoyed the idea that little leftist loyalists were doing their best to stop people from being exposed to the truth.

    Outstanding. Saw the movie over the 4th Holiday. D’souza is one great American.
    The Movie “America” should be required viewing in all Middle and High Schools
    this September school year.

    It’s wonderful that someone is willing to stand up for AMERICA. We should all get behind this
    movie and make sure everyone sees it. Otherwise our country will be going down the tube.
    I love AMERICA and I’m concerned about the young people that would believe all the lies that
    the left are telling. I pray for this country.
