Parents are shipping them to their kids in college. People are dragging their “undecided” friends to theaters on weekend nights by the thousands to watch… documentaries. There hasn’t been anything like this in movie theaters since "An Inconvenient Truth" or "Fahrenheit 9/11"—though these two new movies are outselling those two liberal chestnuts. In fact, they are breaking box-office records, too.And I'll be damned, it's correct. In fact the Amazon list is somewhat loopy:
[...] The two top-selling documentary DVDs in America are both conservative exposes of radical leftist ideology on the march: "2016: Obama’s America" and "Occupy Unmasked."
That’s right: In an election season when the mainstream media is already writing up news accounts of President Obama’s acceptance speech, the liveliest action in theaters and online media purchasing is taking place on the right.

It serves as well for the D'Souza page but the Real Father bit breaks the trend:
So... I can think of all kinds of insulting reasons for such things, so why not be insulting:
1. Conservative book-club type thingie.That, though, doesn't really explain the Box Office Mojo chart for 2016.
2. Kooks and shut-ins buy DVDs while everyone else is streaming them.
3. Scientology-style cult pumping figures (Catholicism box set at number ten?).
4. People just aren't buying DVDs so 2 & 3 operate with few purchases necessary.
Mind you the Netflix popular picks don't reflect that lunacy, but there's probably less of a frightened-senior-citizen component going on.
