Filmmaker Joel Gilbert has mailed 2.7 million copies of his full-length documentary “Dreams from My Real Father” to households in key swing states, with 1.5 million going to Florida, 700,000 to Colorado and 500,000 to Iowa.
The mass distribution follows a mailing last month in which Gilbert sent 1.38 million DVDs of “Dreams from My Real Father” to households in swing state Ohio along with 100,000 to New Hampshire and 80,000 to Nevada.
Gilbert told WND the direct mail program aims to bypass the establishment media blackout on his film.
“It’s shocking that in the land of the First Amendment, in the ‘information age’ no less, a state of censorship exists on so many levels in the American media today,” Gilbert said.
Gilbert said that as long as the major media “refuse to cover my film, we are going to continue this publicity campaign by shipping DVDs state-by-state, million-by-million, until the media covers the findings in ‘Dreams from My Real Father.’”
Gilbert argues in the documentary that Frank Marshall Davis, the radical poet and journalist who was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA, was the real, biological and ideological father of Barack Obama, not Barack Obama, the Kenyan, who came from Africa in 1959 to attend the University of Hawaii in Honolulu.
“Barack Obama built his political career on personal appeal – the son of a Kenyan goat herder who stood above politics,” he explained.
“However, ‘Dreams from My Real Father’ demonstrates that Obama has a deeply disturbing family background, which he intentionally obscured, to hide a Marxist political foundation. Dreams from My Real father is the story Barack Obama should have told, revealing his true agenda for ‘fundamentally transforming America.’”
The logic behind the direct mail campaign
Gilbert stressed to WND that his DVD has been at the top of the charts since first released, including the No. 1 spot on Amazon.com’s documentary list for weeks.
Establishment media also are reluctant to cover his findings, he said, because it would expose them for not having done their job of investigating Obama’s background
“Barack Obama must now come clean,” Gilbert insisted. “Instead of misrepresenting himself as he did in 2008, Obama should say, ‘My father was a Communist Party propagandist and suspected Soviet agent who indoctrinated me into Marxist ideology in my formative years. Please vote for me so I can destroy the American middle class and create a one-party political system.’”
Gilbert emphasized the extensive research backing the claims made in his film.
“I have been to Hawaii twice researching Obama’s inspiring family story of a Kenyan goat herder father. That is twice as many times as all of the mainstream media combined! Who could have imagined that news organizations with hundreds of reporters, and multi-million dollar budgets, wouldn’t investigate a presidential candidate’s background in 2008 and would ignore doing so again in 2012?”
His research extended to examine Chicago and the roots of the Frank Marshall Davis ideology.
“Davis joined the Communist party in Chicago, only 15 years after the Bolshevik Revolution,” Gilbert said. “You can hear the classic Marxism in Obama’s campaign, the ‘top 1 percent oppressing the 99 percent,’ and ‘you didn’t build your business, it was done on the backs of the proletariat,’ and so on. Marxism is a failed ideology that has no basis in fact in the American reality where the middle class has prospered and the issue of poverty is taken seriously.”
Gilbert told WND he believes the publicity resulting from the mailing of 2.7 million DVDs to Florida, Colorado and Iowa, following his September mailing of 1.38 million to Ohio, New Hampshire and Nevada will help “Dreams from My Real Father” remain relevant for years, whether or not Obama is reelected.
“The president of the United States promoted a false family background to hide a Marxist political foundation he received from his real father, a Communist Party USA propagandist,” he said. “I think this should be a major news story of the young century, an example of investigative journalism by a grassroots film production company versus a corrupt and lazy mainstream media. The mainstream media would not do their jobs, so I did it for them.”
Plan: Mail millions of DVDs
Gilbert said getting the American public to understand the official Obama nativity story is a fabrication will not be an easy task.
“Obama’s election was not a sudden political phenomenon,” he explained. “It was the culmination of an American socialist movement that Frank Marshall Davis nurtured in Chicago and Hawaii, and has been quietly infiltrating the U.S. economy, universities and media for decades.”
Gilbert told WND plans are in the works to send millions more DVDs of “Dreams from My Real Father” across the nation.
He said he wants to distribute the film “state by state, million by million, until the mainstream media covers it.”
Gilbert said he was planning next on a million DVDs being mailed to Pennsylvania, Virginia, Michigan, Wisconsin and Illinois.
“We can manufacture and ship 1 million DVDs per day out of Southern California,” he explained. “In the meantime, the 2.7 million DVD mailing to Florida, Colorado and Iowa households, and following up on the 1.38 million mailing to Ohio, New Hampshire and Nevada should force the mainstream media to pay attention. This will help expand the market for the film into television, video on demand and even internationally.”
“Dreams from My Real Father” mass produced
Gilbert described the mass production effort in a video.
“The media simply can’t ignore these million DVD mailings forever,” Gilbert said. “I encourage everyone who gets a DVD in the mail to watch it, share it with friends and contact the news media to discuss the information in the film.”
Gilbert told WND he hopes his million DVD mailings will stimulate “Dreams of My Real Father” sales, a television deal and possibly even a nationwide theatrical release.
“I got the idea for the free DVD mailer publicity program when I received an email from a Bern Nilson in Denver, Colo.,” Gilbert explained. “He wrote, ‘We are on the verge of losing the Constitution. Freedom and liberty are in jeopardy. As a Vietnam War veteran, I ask, what did I fight for? Please, can you get this information out to millions? It is our only hope!’”
In a now viral video, Gilbert announced the decision to mail millions of DVDs on July 19 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
Gilbert has created a “Breaking News” page on the “Dreams from My Real Father” website about his plan to mail 3 million DVDs to households in Pennsylvania, Virginia, Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan.
