In a previous post titled The Force of the Tea Party is Female, I wrote about the power of women in today’s political arena, the power that is changing America. We women are pushing back — hard — against all that threatens our freedom, liberty, and makes our country exceptional. This is the first-ever film to tell the story of the conservative woman in her own words.
Now, the folks from Citizens United have created another founding document of sorts. Premiering in Washington DC on Sept. 22, FIRE IN THE HEARTLAND is a powerful statement about America at a crossroads and the women who have awakened to the crisis. From the official website:
… With role models such as Clare Boothe Luce, Margaret Thatcher, and Phyllis Schlafly as inspiration, these women are the unintended consequence of the liberal feminist movement.
Tracing the long history of the many conservative women who have been the backbone of this great nation, from the founding mothers of our Republic to today’s “Mama Grizzlies,” this powerful and compelling documentary honors the self-made American woman.
Activists, politicians and commentators such as Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, S.E. Cupp, Dana Loesch, Michelle Easton, Sonnie Johnson, Jenny Beth Martin, Michelle Moore, Jamie Radtke, Deneen Borelli, Janine Turner, and Congresswomen Cynthia Lummis, Jean Schmidt, and Michele Bachmann share their emotional stories of hardship and triumph in their fight for freedom. These women leaders are fanning the flames of liberty across the nation.
Written and directed by Stephen K. Bannon and produced by David N. Bossie, the team that made the critically acclaimed film “Generation Zero” that focused on the financial meltdown and the rise of the Tea Party, “Fire from the Heartland” is a must-see for every citizen concerned with the direction of our country and will stir a fire in the hearts of all Americans.
As Marin Cogan writes at Politico:
The timing couldn’t be sweeter for the makers of “Fire From the Heartland: The Reawakening of the Conservative Woman.”
Just days after the Tea Party favorite Christine O’Donnell pulled off a stunning upset against GOP establishment pick Mike Castle, Citizens United will premiere a documentary in Washington next week that they say is the first “to tell the story of the awakening of a new generation of women that are at the forefront of today’s reborn conservative movement.”
The film capitalizes on what political observers and activists have already noted of this election cycle—the riders on this year’s political storm are women, a sagebrush set well-positioned to help the GOP reclaim the congress.
While women are filling in on the top of the party ticket, the documentary explores the flip side of the equation — looking at the Tea Party’s grassroots activists, like Jenny Beth Martin, and starring the more familiar female stars of the conservative movement, including Rep. Michele Bachmann, Ann Coulter and Phyllis Schlafly.

The trailer for the film, which was directed by “Generation Zero” director Steven K. Bannon, begins with Bachmann asking Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner a question during the financial crisis, and crescendos with quotes from Coulter and Palin. Lady Gaga, the women of “Sex and the City” and a mama grizzly also make an appearance.
