An effort to require students in Florida public schools to watch a controversial documentary by conservative pundit Dinesh D'Souza gained ground this week with the support of a state House member.Indoctrination is bad. Unless of course, it's the Right kind of indoctrination. Remember, kids. Like with everything in life, it's okay if you're a Republican.
Rep. Neil Combee, a Lakeland Republican, filed a bill seeking to mandate that all eighth- and 11th-grade students view the film America: Imagine the World Without Her. His legislation is identical to a measure filed by Sen. Alan Hays in November.
While D'Souza's latest opus is an inflammatory, straw man laden, example of right-wing propaganda, it's also just simply a pretty terrible movie.
Also, too. Any time this wretched movie is brought up, I have to provide a link to a thoroughly enjoyable thrashing by David Corn and Tom Ashbrook. Those two provide some very entertaining tag team action against D'Souza and his inane, nonsensical arguments.
