Stoked, absolutely stoked to see this.
I watched Dinesh D’Souza’s 2016: Obama’s America many years ago (it came out in 2012 before his foolish re-election) and it was fantastic. It wasn’t boring at all. Really well done. (And it led to his targeting by Obama’s IRS.)
But this.. Ooooohhh… This really puts the screws to the Democratic Party of ‘progressives’.
Here’s an interview with Rush Limbaugh.
Dinesh D’Souza on his provocative new film, Death of a Nation
And the following excerpts show why it is so critical to not only see this movie, but to understand the logic and rational behind the Democrat party – and the similarities since their days of Slavery. (It even shows how the Nazi’s took the Democrats Jim Crow Laws, marked out Black, wrote Jew, and turned it into the infamous Nuremberg Laws)
RUSH: Even today, one of the greatest tricks in modern day America has been the Democrat Party shifting away the blame from themselves as the true segregationists and racists to the Republican Party.
When in fact, as you just mentioned, every Democrat in the South — everybody who shut a university door, turned a firehose and set the dogs on African-Americans — was a Democrat. They were the segregationists, and they’ve been able to erase that. Now we live in an era where the left and much of the media tries to draw a connection between Donald Trump and Hitler or George W. Bush and Hitler. Now, here you come. Are you…? In using this historical fact and the way you present it in your movie, are you trying to persuade? Are you trying to get people’s attention? What are you hoping people’s reaction, not just to the whole film, but to that specific scenario you just described, is?
D’SOUZA: Rush, what I’m trying to do is to educate. And I’m actually trying to challenge the left and draw them into a debate, which they are scared to do. But I do it not really just by arguments. I also do it in a sense through investigative journalism, and I’ll tell you what I mean. The left has been saying ever since the Charlottesville rally — the infamous white supremacist rally in Charlottesville — that these white supremacists, the white nationalists are right-wingers.
And this is a very valuable, important argument for the left because, think about it: The Democrat Party has been the party of slavery, of segregation, of Jim Crow, of racial terrorism, of the Ku Klux Klan, of opposing the Civil Rights movement. So what the left gets is a get-out-of-jail-free card because they’re able to say, “Yeah, but look at the white nationalists here right now! They’re wearing Trump hats. They’re right-wingers,” and it’s this elephant in the living room that I actually crush in the movie.
D’Souza: What we’re really showing — is the deep vein of racism and fascism on the Democratic left today. Today! Because look. Here’s Antifa wearing these black costumes and acting in a fascist way. Mussolini would recognize them right away. In fact, he couldn’t tell the difference between them and his own Blackshirts.
Look at the way the left uses the weapons of the state — the IRS, the FBI, the DOJ — against political opponents. That’s what the fascists did! They merged the party and the state. So for Hitler, the Nazi Party was the government, and that’s the way Democrats see it today. And then finally, of course, fascist economics. It’s kind of funny, Donald Trump Jr. came to our red carpet premiere. He co-hosted it with me here in D.C., and he was reading through — we put up on the screen — the 25-point Nazi platform. The Nazis, of course, were elected.
They were the largest political party in Germany in 1933 when Hitler became chancellor, and as you read through the platform, this is what they campaigned on: State control of banks; state control of insurance; state control of education; state control of energy; state control of religious liberty. Basically Donald Trump (JR) blurted out, he goes, “Well, that sounds like the platform of the Democrat Party!”
RUSH: It’s the platform of tyrants!
D’SOUZA: Because the Nazis were socialists, you can see there actually is going to be, in fact, a resemblance.
Go watch it.
Let me know what you think.
