Lawmaker to Push Bill
Requiring Dinesh D´Souza´s
´America´ Be Shown in Schools

Hollywood Reporter, by Paul Bond

Original Article

Posted By:Harlowe, 7/25/2014 11:22:48 AM

Florida GOP state senator Alan Hays said he’ll propose a bill mandating that students in the 1,700 Florida public high schools and middle schools are to be shown the film unless their parents object. A Florida state senator plans to introduce a bill that would make Dinesh D´Souza´s docudrama, America, required viewing for most teenagers in the state, The Hollywood Reporter learned on Friday. Republican Alan Hays said he’ll introduce in November his one-page bill that simply states that students in the 1,700 Florida public high schools and middle schools are to be shown the film unless their parents object.

Comments:
Should be mandatory viewing in all public schools and colleges throughout the country.

Bravo Other states should follow his lead. Lord knows, but it might help to offset the liberal/socialist propaganda being taught at present.

they forced my kids to watch that awful Al Gore movie about global warming. It was forced viewing for the last 7 years! I think they finally stopped forcing the kids to have to accept it as truth last year. But I am sure all those teachers are still showing it. I live in the SF Bay Area.

Fair is fair. If Michael Moore´s films and Al Gore´s film are being shown this should be available as well.

Yeah, let´s get the Feds to mandate one more thing. I don´t have any quarrel with it being included in the curriculum, but I´m not on board for this wrong-headed idea, even if I agree with the movie´s content.

#3 & #4 -- it was probably the local educrats that made that decision, not the Feds.

Why don´t these clowns put their energies into real problems? There are dozens of pressing issues that Congress ought to be addressing in a meaningful way, instead of parading their moral conceits which actually contradict the purpose and intent of a free society.

Misdirected indignation... I believe it´s the Florida State Senate that is considerring the legislation.

I saw the movie Monday, and was impressed. And I´d like everybody to see it! (The "believers" are the ones who are flocking to see it, I´m sure.) I´m a little skeptical that legislation should mandate a viewing, however.

You´re right, #9 -- missed that.

But I still think even a state mandate is wrong-headed for the same reason.

This magnificent documentary film presents historical facts about the USA which have been TOTALLY ignored by the lefty/lib´s history revisionists. It is a current MUST SEE!!! All students need the truth about America as they will learn the good far outweighs the bad. ´´America...,´´ reminds us, ´freedom isn´t free.´ America´s Constitutional compass goal & the heart of the American people have always cherished life, Liberty and Justice for ALL.

#8-10,#9 - IF the public education system provided a curriculum as existed until the 1960s, it would not be necessary to consider legislation to counter revisionist history now being used to indoctrinate students. Well-intentioned citizens have been exceedingly tolerant of the deliberate encroachment of a liberal agenda that now threatens the existence of this country’s freedoms and survival as intended by our Founding Fathers. Benjamin Franklin’s response to the woman who asked at the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787: “Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy” “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

The elevator slides open and a large 2-by-3-foot dog photo welcomes you to the 29th floor. It’s Bark, Cleveland’s only indoor dog park — one of dozens of lifestyle amenities at the new Metropolitan Hotel in downtown Cleveland. Its very existence serves to underscore the playful whimsy that characterizes the new boutique hotel, which borrows from the legacy of the old Cleveland Trust Bank at E. Ninth Street and Euclid Avenue with double-take details paying tribute to the past. The just-opened hotel — officially called the Metropolitan at the 9 — is one of the iconic properties in the Autograph

Sen. Ted Cruz was booed offstage at a conference for Middle Eastern Christians Wednesday night after saying that "Christians have no greater ally than Israel." Cruz, the keynote speaker at the sold-out D.C. dinner gala for the recently-founded non-profit In Defense of Christians, began by saying that "tonight, we are all united in defense of Christians. Tonight, we are all united in defense of Jews. (Snip) "Those who hate Israel hate America," he continued, as the boos and calls for him to leave the stage got louder.

COLUMBUS: Ohio´s elections chief says an early voting decision from a federal judge must be appealed. Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted (HYOO´-sted) says the ruling could lead to different rules for voting across the swing state´s 88 counties. U.S. District Judge Peter Economus on Thursday blocked an Ohio law that trims early voting, ordering Husted to set an expanded voting schedule. The judge barred Husted from preventing boards from adopting additional early voting hours beyond his order. (Snip) The ruling from comes in a lawsuit filed by civil rights groups and others challenging two early-voting measures.

COLUMBUS: A federal judge on Thursday temporarily blocked an Ohio law that scales back early voting, ordering the state’s elections chief to set additional voting times just ahead of the fall election. The ruling from U.S. District Judge Peter Economus comes in a lawsuit filed by civil rights groups, several predominantly black churches and others challenging two early voting measures in the perennial presidential battleground state. One is a directive from Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted that established uniform early voting times and restricted weekend and evening hours.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is putting a call out to the American people: He needs help to kill President Barack Obama’s plans to grant executive amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. Sessions wants Americans to melt Congress’ phone lines, demanding their members make a precondition of any border crisis bill that Obama’s executive order amnesty via the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and any future plans be stopped.

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

The Case for Panic

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

Mitt Romney and 2016:

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said.
