There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Gerald R. Molen
Hailing from North Montana, Molen grew up in North Hollywood and worked his way up through the studio system from a production van driver to the Head of Production at Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment, where he produced classics Schindler's List and Jurassic Park, as well as unequivocal masterpieces of modern cinema like The Flintstones Movie. After going into semi-retirement in the early 2000s, presumably because Spielberg had started to pick up on his colleague's wingnut tendencies, he became a full-on crank, producing Dinesh D'Souza's "documentary" 2016: Obama's America; a film that alleges that Barack "HUSSEIN" Obama is an anti-colonial Pinko commie Marxist out to transform the United States into a Third World country. After D'Souza was sent to jail on unrelated campaign finance fraud charges, both he and D'Souza himself publicly alleged that the latter had been framed by Obama as revenge for his "documentary," even before this trial was finished. In the same letter posted on his website, Molen also vocalized support for the Tea Party movement.
He produced D'Souza's subsequent follow-up films; America: Imagine the World Without Her (which would like to have you think America not only invented democracy, but also that Native American genocide is the biggest hoax since climate change) and Hillary's America: A Secret History of the Democratic Party (a film filled with such shocking revelations like the KKK having been founded by Democrats, a fact one can easily find in any public middle school history textbook).
Unsurprisingly, Molen aligns himself with that particular arch-conservative branch of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, the same place Glenn Beck hails from. Sadly, Beck has yet to produce a Best Picture Oscar winner, or run a successful media empire for that matter.
