Dennis Michael Lynch (or DML as he prefers) is an American businessman, documentary film maker, and conservative political commentator. He often appears as a guest on Fox News, The Kelly File, and The Blaze.
He has captured America’s eye and focused it on such subjects as the growing immigration problem with films such as “THEY COME TO America” parts I, II, and III. He shows the increasingly liberal media and their take on the news with “WE RIDE TO DC,” and, with his upcoming “FIGHTING FOR AMERICA,” looks at our declining life in America and what we should do about it.
In his 2015 film, “POWER GRAB,” He spends time with Dick Morris and looked at Obama’s remaining time in office and his plans for a one-party political system.
This is the 2nd part of our interview with DML’s responses that show his personal beliefs and motivations for producing the films and books he does. No racism, no rhetoric, just facts and reality as the camera and DML have seen them. Part 1 can be found HERE.
Part 2 –
Ron: Your recent successful projects (They Come to America I, II, & III) deal with the overwhelming immigration crisis we face. Not tens, but hundreds of thousands rushing our borders for freedom, opportunity or criminal advantage, take your pick. Either way, is this just one part of Obama’s realization of the Cloward-Piven strategy of causing harm to America by “overwhelming the system?” Will other “overwhelming” actions such as prisoner releases, crushing debt, takeover of the areas such as education and medicine, and suffocating regulatory environmental controls be part of your projects?
DML: Obama’s fundamental transformation of America leaves a guy like me with no shortage of topics to cover. Whether it’s a Cloward-Piven strategy he follows, or just his upside-down vision for America that fueled his moves, only he can answer that question. I just know he’s been very effective at screwing up this country. He has a full year to create more harm and I think he will. That said, I could make 100 movies about what he’s done to America, and none of it is good. As noted, I’m in pre-production on films covering welfare abuse, and another one on the abuse of veterans. I tend to find myself interested in diving into areas where other people don’t go. I’m passionate about some topics more than others, and I think my passion will dictate what I do versus don’t do. Unlike Dinesh D’Souza, I don’t see myself making films about a single person like he did with Obama, and he has another coming out about Hillary. I could never make a film entirely about one person who I don’t like. For example, I would never make a film about Hillary — I would despise doing such a film. I didn’t get into films so I can showcase 90-minutes of beating down on someone even if they deserve it. I need and want my films to identify a problem, and then offer a solution. If I can’t offer a solution, I won’t engage the topic.
Ron: For whatever reason, in whatever form, do you fear Obama’s plan, and execution of it, for America, and shouldn’t people be waking up to our real future as never imagined?
DML: I think Obama’s damage is done, especially when it comes to immigration. And if Hillary is elected, or if the wrong Republican is elected, I fear we take on the sort of trouble that is irreversible. And as a father of 4, that scares me to no end.
Ron: You say that your biggest fear was filming the Cliven Bundy Ranch incident with the BLM? Are we seeing the beginnings of a tyrannical, dictatorial gov’t not previously allowed or even imagined in this country of the free?
DML: I get asked a lot about the Bundy event and why the gov’t did what they did to Cliven. I don’t have an answer. I don’t know Cliven, and I didn’t spend much time getting into the back story. I didn’t do what I did for Cliven or his cattle. I stood in front of the BLM machine guns because the situation was getting hot and it needed leadership. I didn’t want to see one American die regardless of what side they were on. That said, I was really scared that people were going to die, including myself — I feared I would get caught in crossfire. So I stepped up and tried to defuse the situation. Thankfully everything ended peacefully. I’ve made a film about that day, it releases on DVD this November.
As for gov’t take-overs, I don’t think agencies like the BLM are trying to control people, etc. That sort of thinking is a bit over the top in my opinion. I think the BLM is the poster child for big government gone awry. It’s a sign of gov’t being out of control. And if we had a Reagan-like president, I think agencies like the BLM would be done away with. Then again, I could be wrong — I just don’t know. But I can tell you without pause that the scene in Nevada was as dangerous as it was preventable.
Ron: Are you meeting your personal goals for reaching, informing, warning, motivating action from citizens, or do you restrict your documentary style so your films are reflective of society and informational, hoping to get people involved?
DML: I am very frustrated about my films not being in theaters, but I cannot break through the liberal gatekeepers who don’t want my immigration films to see the light of day. If it was not for FOX NEWS, conservative radio, and NewsmaxTV you wouldn’t know my name. But sadly those outlets are not enough, that’s why I give away the free DVDs with the purchase of one. People have shared my films over and over again, and because I don’t do the theater thing, I will never have a true idea of how many people have seen the films. I do know it’s more than 1,000,000, and that’s cool by me, but I’d like it to be 100 million.
Ron: Many of your projects have focused the light on illegal, mainly Hispanic, immigration and yet, should we also be looking at Obama’s “legal” immigration of increasingly disconcerting Muslim populations? Are these the real destructive forces being introduced to America. Are they a part of a bigger Obama plan (or are we paranoid) and do you have any plans for a future look at this increasing problem? isn’t it a major problem when “They Come to America” bringing Sharia law and archaic customs?
DML: I am not a racist, nor do I target people by their skin color or nationality. Anyone who knows me knows I am a big hearted guy who loves all people. And so when people say my films are anti-Latino it’s just a big fat lie used to deflect the facts regarding who is coming here illegally. The reason why you see so many Hispanics in my films is because fact is Hispanics are coming through the southern border in droves. If the Irish and Italian were coming in illegally through Mexico, my films would be flooded with Irish and Italian people.
As for Islam, same principle applies — I don’t put a bullseye on someone for the sake of their religion. Frankly, I don’t care who you pray to. But I am concerned about Islamic extremism, and I’m also turned off when people blame their religion as the reason why they can’t adapt to American culture. My response is, “Why live here?” That said, I do cover Islamic extremism in my films, and in They Come to America 3, I do discuss what I witnessed in Michigan. When I traveled through Dearborn it was like being in another country at times. I’d see one store after the next filled with signs written in Arabic. Residential streets are filled with hundreds of women wearing full burkas and not one of them would say hello to me. But the worst was driving through neighborhoods without seeing a single American flag waving from a flagpole or porch. When that sort of thing happens it’s going to make it into my film.
Ron: One politically active veteran and civil servant opined that it was delusional for you to consider running for president last year. And yet, don‘t we need passionate, patriotic, intelligent, almost “every day“ people running for local and national offices (as originally intended) rather than the elite, the political opportunists, the career office holders who have already proven their destructive results? Do you think your films are inspiring people to get more involved?
DML: I’ve had people who love me say that running for office is crazy, especially when I’ve built a nice career doing what I love (i.e. making films). As for some stranger who doesn’t know me but is willing to take their time to write nasty things about my efforts, I feel bad for that person. But then again there is no shortage of keyboard cowboys on the Internet who have a lot to say but little to offer, especially bloggers and Facebook warriors who hide behind alias names and fake profiles so they can spew lies.
I don’t think it was delusional of me at all. In fact, I wish I hadn’t gotten sick because I believe I’d be polling towards the top. For example, Megyn Kelly had me on her show to discuss my 2016 strategy. I told her I was exploring a run for the presidency because I am in love with my country, and that no person is more qualified than myself when it comes to securing the border and stopping the illegal alien invasion. Plus, I’ve created jobs for 25 years as a businessman, and I understand the issues facing America and how they need to be solved. And I can’t be bought or lobbied to by special interest groups. When her show was over she ran a poll on her Facebook page asking viewers if they’d vote for me. Over 4k people responded, of which 88% said yes they would vote for me. Lots of delusional people, I guess?
Ron: You have some exciting film and book projects coming up with your “A Day At Bundy’s”, “Fighting for America,” and ultimately your remake of “King of the Hamptons.” Anything else you want to tease us with and will these be an expansion, another beginning to a longer story yet to unfold on America’s future?
DML: I am making a film about the 2016 race, that’s all I can say for now.
Ron: Any final words of wisdom, encouragement, warning for American in light of our election next year? Will ultimately Neal Diamond’s song end in such societal disharmony and a sour discord we don’t even want to consider it?
DML: If Donald Trump has taught us one thing it’s that America is tired of the political correctness and the DC insiders. So if you’re tired of being tossed under the bus, stand up — don’t be afraid of voicing your concerns. Remember, being pro-America doesn’t mean your anti-anything. As for my films, if people go to TheyComeToAmerica.com and buy a DVD, I send them free copies to hand out to people so the truth can get out there. Some people say giving away more DVDs than I sell makes me delusional, I say it makes me feel good to know I’m doing what I can to help my country.
Our thanks to Mr. Lynch for his time in conversing about his projects, and these timely subjects so important to America.
