Why did Dorothy follow the yellow brick road? Filmmaker Joel Gilbert journeys across America to find out what's at the end of the ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«progressiveÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ rainbow ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åå Utopia or something far worse? From the ruins of Detroit to the slums of Chicago's South Side, and from Denver's illegal immigration invasion to Newark's urban removal project, Gilbert pulls back the curtain. He confronts progressives on his quest, and he takes us deep into their political fantasy of paradise on earth, investigating:
- Why amnesty for illegals is bad for the black community.
- Why the Democrat Party wants Americans dependent on government
- How Islam is expanding into Detroit and other cities devastated by progressive policies
- Why Peggy Joseph, the 2008 voter who said Obama would ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«pay for her mortgage,ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ DOES NOT support him today
- How political correctness is silencing American free speech
- The roots of the progressive agenda for Utopia on earth
- Why Chicago and Newark are becoming the new Detroits
- Why Barack Obama is the real-life Wizard of Oz ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åå a charlatan full of empty promises
- The ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«vast left-wing conspiracyÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ in America today
ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«There's No Place Like UtopiaÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ is a humorous and horrifying exploration of progressivism, amnesty for illegals, race relations, Islam in America, political correctness and Barack Obama himself, who promises to "remake the world as it should be." But is Utopia a real destination for America? Or does the true path to happiness still remain faith, family and hard work ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åå back home in Kansas?
ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«Joel Gilbert takes a serious theme ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åå how socialism (disguised as progressivism) threatens to destroy our freedom and prosperity and fashions it into an imaginative, creative, biting and yes, genuinely funny movie. There's No Place Like Utopia manages to be both instructive and entertaining. It should be to the current elections what Dinesh di Souza's documentary 2016 was to the 2012 elections, only this time, given the very different atmosphere, Gilbert's film could have a real political impact.ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åå Rael Jean Isaac, The Wall Street Journal
ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«Joel Gilbert dissects what many Americans think of as a benign desire for a perfectible universe, and in doing so exposes the dark totalitarian underside of utopian dreams. With insightful interviews overlaying a comic narrative, Gilbert brings to life our current day Wizards of Oz and their outsized plans to reorganize society and control behavior, while shrinking the freedoms we still ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åå foolishly ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åå take for granted. Americans need to wake up before they find themselves living in a very different country from the one they were born to.ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åå Ken Timmerman, author of ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«Dark ForcesÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´
ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å«A great message to America accomplished with remarkable wisdom, dogged determination and exceptional patriotism. This film can turn the tide of progressive destruction. This movie needs to be seen by every American.ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎå´ ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åå Gen. Charles Jones III, U.S. Air Force, retired
