Storyline

Ronald Reagan was the President of the Screen Actor's Guild during the incredibly violent Hollywood trade union strike in the 1940's. Reagan saw first-hand the brutality, destruction and oppression that defined the communist party as it attempted to overtake the unions to convert them into propaganda mills for the Soviet Union. The strike incited in him a call to action and an unshakeable belief that communism was a "form of insanity" which must be wiped from the earth. From SAG President, to GE Spokesman, Governor of California and finally, to President of the United States, this film chronicles the rise of Ronald Reagan, his unwavering conviction that America was the world's last best hope of man, and shows why he is hero to over a billion people who he helped free from the bonds of Soviet domination.

This kind of religious rhapsodizing should be reserved for celebrating phenomena of a truly spiritual nature and not political propaganda. "Song of Bernadette" works for the spiritual life of a Spanish peasant--not for the governor of California.

It's telling that the production company, Leo McWatkins, is headed by Tim Watkins, former CFO of Viguerie Companies (see his bio at the McWatkins web site). Viguerie accepted responsibility and paid penalties for election-law violations and mail fraud for bilking senior citizens of "campaign contributions" on religious pretexts--contributions which it then turned around and used to campaign against the very Social Security system that supported the senior-citizen contributors. (US v American TARGET, 4th Circuit, MISC-99-56-MC) (see also, "Please Mr. Postman", National Review, 6/20/86, David Brooks) "In the Face of Evil" is another example of the same old shell game: exploiting religion and spirituality to serve the political agenda of the "new right".

And, no, Michael Moore's guerrilla-documentary style is no justification for this kind of corporate collusion among investment-broker/film-directors and mass-marketer/producers to spin politics in religious terms.
