President Barack Obama's inaugural promise to "remake America" means he'll have to "unmake America" first, conservative filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza said at a Houston gathering to promote his new movie "America."

D'Souza, a former policy analyst for the Reagan White House, warned a crowd of conservative and Republican activists who attended the weekend event that Obama needs a "movement within the culture" to achieve his dream of remaking America, and that movement is "education, Hollywood, the media, churches, and National Public Radio," reports Breitbart.

D'Souza, whose credits also include "2016: Obama's America," the 2010 bestseller "The Roots of Obama's Rage," and his latest book, "America: Imagine The World Without Her," will preview his new movie in Houston on June 24 and in thousands of theaters nationally on July 2, just in time for the July 4 holiday.

The event in Houston was planned to get activists excited about the movie, with D'Souza telling the crowd that film executives will watch the Houston reaction to see how the movie previews.

Several Texas elected officials attended, including the Texas Republican Party lieutenant governor nominee and state Sen. Dan Patrick, along with former Majority Whip Tom Delay. The Texas Tea Party Republican Women's Club organized the event, along with several other area Republicans.

D'Souza, a verbal Obama critic, recently pleaded guilty to campaign finance fraud in federal court for exceeding donor limits in 2012. He was involved in a plan to get others to contribute under their own names — with him reimbursing them — to the New York state Senate campaign of Wendy Long after his own contributions exceeded the limits.

D'Souza says the federal government selectively prosecuted him because of his political views.

Delay said D'Souza may go to prison over the "criminalization of politics."

D'Souza said that in his movie, he seeks to "answer the central moral challenge of America's critics, which is that America's greatness is based on theft, plunder, and oppression." It also reveals, he said, progressives' plans to demonize the United States.

Such "anti-American propaganda" is being promoted to children, he said, and teachers are involved in no longer teaching pride in America to its young people.

Shifting cultural assumptions also are occurring, said D'Souza, particularly over the gay marriage debate.

"How badly we need right now a Washington, a Lincoln, a Reagan," D'Souza says in the movie trailer. "Well, we don't have them, but we do have us."
