The St. Tammany Republican Party Executive Committee is sponsoring a movie night Wednesday (July 23) and encouraging GOP members in the parish to view the film America at theaters in Slidell and Covington. A flyer for the event urges party members to “join us in celebrating the ‘exceptionalism’ of America.”

America is a 2014 documentary based on a book by Dinesh D’Souza that examines the criticisms of America but also explores his theory of how the world might be if there was no America. D’Souza, a conservative author and filmmaker who also produced 2016: Obama’s America, told FOX News that his latest docudrama seeks to celebrate the United States of America and its technological and humanitarian achievements.

The film features dramatic re-enactments to offset what D’Souza has characterized as an anti-American lean to the retelling of the country’s history.

The St. Tammany Republican Party movie night will take place at the Hollywood Stadium 14, 69348 Louisiana 21 near Covington. Show times there are at 7:40 PM and 10:25 PM. On the eastern side of the parish, the movie night event will be at The Grand 16, 1950 Gause Blvd. West in Slidell, where show times will be 6:30 PM and 9:00 PM.

The party’s executive committee, which serves as the local arm of the Republican Party, is inviting movie goers to arrive early and tailgate with other GOP members in the parking lot of the theaters. Movie tickets will be available for purchase at the door.

The film was put in wide release on July 2. Shortly thereafter, The Hollywood Reporter said filmmakers and others had complained to Google that would-be viewers searching the Internet for show times and locations were at times being misdirected to another movie. Google later corrected the problem, according to the publication.

Through D'Souza's trademark incisiveness, wit, and originality, United States of Socialism reveals how the Left uses the Venezuelan formula for socialism, decisively refutes this new face of socialism, chillingly documents the full range of the Left’s gangster tendencies, and provocatively exposes the tactics of the socialist Left.

    No surprise about Google. Keep up the good work, Mr. D’Souza; you’ve earned the respect and admiration of so many people, including me.

    I saw “America” on July 23rd not knowing about Republican Movie Night. My son (14 yrs) & I were very moved by the film. We loved it. Everyone clapped at the end except for 1 guy. He stood up and yelled,”Propaganda! Fox News!” Then scampered out. Unfortunately he is my friend’s husband and we were with him! We were all saddened by his response. He is a 60 yr old man acting very immature in front of his own son and mine. I had no idea he was a staunch Obama/Clinton man. He could not substantiate his claims either.

    Just go see this movie and remember God expects us to know facts and not fiction, to learn and not just hear and believe. We all are in a country that is the best and the liberals can’t stand the idea of their takeover being stopped because “We the People” start reading and learning and sharing the truth. Thank you Mr. D’Souza for bringing forth knowledge that our history books have been leaving out for a few generations. It is our responsibility to take this to our schools and ask that this movie be a part of the curriculum of every history course starting at the middle school level at least. I saw the film the progressives made years ago. During one of my trips to DC to march against Obamacare the film was shared with us and afterward we understood they are prepared to preach their story until we are their slaves. They have had a plan for far too long. We need to Stand up for your children and grandchildren now and share our plans for freedom. Loved watching this movie with my family. We have been standing together for a long time and will continue. God Bless America and Mr. D’Souza
