I watched it with the lovely wife Friday night.
In a single word – Superb. Go rent/stream it… right meow. It’s like $3 bucks to rent on Amazon Prime.
RogerEbert.com gave it a one star. Which means precisely jack, as I’ll show you in a minute….
But first, this is the second film by Dinesh D’Souze that I’ve seen. The first was Obama2016, and it was excellent and not at all boring like I expected. (I missed the one he did on Hillary.) But this one was every bit as good as the Obama film… except with Nazis. Personally, I knew a fair amount of the subject matter. But it was still full of surprising facts that I didn’t know. And it took a lot of the bits and pieces I knew about the Democrats history with the KKK and Nazis and put it together in an easy way to follow.
But ya know what, let’s go ahead and take this RobertEbertIDIOT.com review behind the woodshed. My thoughts are in BOLD.

-I scanned your twitter. I’m sure there’s absolutely NO bias in your review… -eyeroll- Exhibit A below:
By the way, as someone who has been hit in the face with a rock flung by a 12 year old hard enough to shatter my glasses and cut my nose open – YEAH. You can hurt and kill someone. You realize the middle east has been stoning people to death for over a century…right? Daniel even slayed a nine and a half foot tall giant with a river stone… Sigh… On behalf of anyone who has been hit with a rock, or served in the military, police, border patrol, JROTC… you’re an idiot.
And if you want to contest that statement… bring a rock. We’ll stand six feet apart and you can throw yours first… then I’ll throw mine.
In concluding my review of “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” (2016), the previous film from conservative pundit-turned-conspiracy theorist/hack filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, I offered the mild critique that “it may well be the single dumbest documentary that I have ever seen in my life.” Good thing that I added that qualifier “may well be” because with his latest effort, “Death of a Nation,” he has managed to outdo his earlier works to such an extent that this could be considered the “Mission: Impossible—Fallout” of crackpot cinematic screeds. In fact, the only thing preventing me from dubbing this one of the dumbest movies of any type that I have ever seen in my life is the fact that I am not entirely certain that something as shabbily constructed and artistically bankrupt as this actually qualifies as a movie in the first place.
It’s fitting that your bio says Dumbo is your favorite movie of all time. But, I love this. This is typical ‘internet argument stuff’. Once confronted with well laid out thoughts, facts, rational, after spending lots of time researching and making sure subject matter is correct – the left deflates and responds with some vague ‘this is stooopidd! You suck!’ response or they ignore everything you said altogether and bring up some other stupid point you have to beat down.
Most people first heard of this movie back in mid-June when D’Souza announced its imminent release and stating that in it, he, in addition to his usual schtick of pinning the blame for all the ills of the world on Democrats, would be putting forth the argument that Donald Trump was the modern-day equivalent of Abraham Lincoln himself.
No bias show here at all…
This announcement raised many eyebrows and not just because that is a comparison that even those whose politics do lean towards the right might find difficult to swallow.
‘Even those whose politics do lean towards the right’ – You mean RHINO’s? Moderates? Never Trumpers? He has a 91% approval rating among Republicans as of a couple days ago. At the time of your article he was around 80+%.
This is another one of those BS arguments the left likes to use. “Well, even your own party hates him!” Shuddup. Hillary was DESPISED by your own party. That’s why you lost. McCain, Romney, Flake, Murkowski, etc don’t speak for all of us. Apparently they only speak for about 9% of us.
It was only a couple of weeks earlier that Trump had unexpectedly granted D’Souza a pardon from his conviction for making illegal campaign contributions in 2012—the assumption being that D’Souza made a film lionizing Trump (presumably after Señor Spielbergo turned the project down) in exchange for his pardon.
Funny. Obama had him investigated by the IRS AFTER his film Obama2016 was released. This was during the proven (by way of apology from the IRS) intentional targeting of Conservatives and Conservative Groups during an election year. But sure, yeah, Trump pardoned him because of a film released outside of an Election year… Or maybe it was a case of the punishment not fitting the crime. But, if you want to play ball – I’ve a list of well known Democrats and Hollywood Celebrities who are guilty of the exact same thing as Dinesh… but no charges, no convictions, no fines, no jail time…
D’Souza claims that Trump knew nothing about the project when he granted the pardon and with nothing concrete to suggest otherwise, I will take D’Souza at his word regarding this. To be fair, however, if ever there was a movie that looked as if it had been slapped together in a couple of weeks as part of a quid pro quo agreement involving a dubious-seeming criminal pardon, “Death of a Nation” is that film.
“To be fair” is funny coming from the guy who posts such profoundly stupid Twitter drivel as yourself. There is nothing ‘fair’ about this review. You’re a political hack who lets his hatred for the right blind him. Whoever let you review this film should be slapped with a dead squid.
And since we are throwing out baseless allegations… A pink polka dotted baboon claims you are a brilliant reviewer who should be heaped with journalistic praise for your verbal pose and elegance and refusal to let politics sway your opinion. /sarcasm.
During a montage chronicling the 2016 election, D’Souza himself admits that he was not exactly gung-ho over Trump (he barely rated a mention in “Hillary’s America,” though D’Souza brags that the film helped with his victory)
So what? -I- wasn’t a Trump fan. I donated money to Ben Carson. But when it came time to vote for Trump or Hillary, it was a simple choice because I’d rather vote for a rotten head of cabbage than a Democrat.
And like Jesus walked on water, Democrats walk on slime. It seems no matter how much scandal, illegal activity, immorality, or stupidity a Democrat has, it rarely weighs them down. Often they get re-elected with even bigger percentages. I’m sure this movie helped, because there are a lot of good intentioned, well meaning, but ultimately politically ignorant folks out there that stuff like this… or Death of a Nation… reveals the truth hidden by liberal schooling, and the media propaganda arm of the left.
but, in his never-ending quest to stay vaguely relevant, he has certainly quaffed the Flavor-Aid since then. He then concludes that montage by stating that outraged Democrats and progressives have created by doing everything they can to overturn the election, ranging from spreading “stories” about how Clinton supposedly won the popular vote to making countless claims about his personal life (“We knew we weren’t electing a choir boy”).
Of course we knew we weren’t electing a choir boy, you little goof. Trump’s life is an open book. He hasn’t spent decades carefully crafting his responses, his career, his reputation, his lies for a life of politics. It’s refreshing to see someone with flaws but good intentions, and with the stones to push through the relentlessness of the left to destroy his family, his life, his business, and the wishes of the American People.
And yes, it reveals EXACTLY what the left did during and after the election. ‘Stories’ – sigh. You can’t rewrite history with your terrible review. This is all easily google-able. Even if their liberal-promoting algorithm pushed it down to about page 30.
First they whined about the popular vote. Sorry, popular vote doesn’t mean squat. Hitting the most home runs is meaningless if you don’t get the most players across the home plate. You know how the game was played, stop playing ignorant when you get your butt handed to you. Then you tried to steal electoral votes, by threatening, bribing, whining, screaming at the sky… Then you pushed the Collusion claim, two years later – not a shred of proof. Heck, you’re still trying to overturn the election… now it’s on to impeachment.
This, D’Souza states, is exactly the same thing that Lincoln, the first Republican elected President, faced when he took office and was opposed by a Democratic party that was indeed largely behind slavery and segregation.
It’s called History. Get you some.
Democrats opposed the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments. This isn’t some sort of creation of fact, it’s public record in the recorded votes. Then they created the Jim Crow laws to push segregation. Later they turned dogs and firehouses on black women and children. Until the Republicans, once again, stepped in to bitch slap your party down.
In D’Souza’s mind, this is apparently a mind-blowing revelation (even though he has made it in his last couple of movies) that history has tried to keep silent from the American people, presuming that they never actually crack a history book.
Sigh. I need to print “I survived Liberal Indoctrination!” bumper stickers. But apparently you swallowed Liberal History 101, hook, line, sinker… and bobber.
Now some of you may be thinking that this thesis makes no sense because the Republicans and Democrats essentially switched positions over the years, especially in the wake of the battle for civil rights in the 1960s.
No, no, no, no! This is so easily proven wrong! This is discussed in the movie that apparently you didn’t even watch before writing this wretched excuse of a review! Here… proven wrong in 5 minutes and 19 seconds. The parties never switched! ARGH! This should be mandatory viewing. I’m so tired of this crap. Just because Democrats say something, over and over and over, doesn’t make it true. Which, is a fact ALSO made in the film, because it’s modus operandi for the left.
Gah – this irks me to no end. Geography has no bearing on values.
This might seem like an enormous oversight, even for a guy who somehow did not realize that he was retweeting messages that included the hashtags #killthejews and #bringbackslavery, but D’Souza has a simple explanation for this—nothing changed, Democrats and progressives continue to be racist monsters and Republicans—the same group actively trying to block black voters from getting to the polls—are the real anti-racists.
And at the end, this goober just gives up on any semblance of unbiasedness and goes all out. I mean, seriously. He accidentally retweeted messages that had garbage in them. Was it an accident that your party supported the systematic slaying of jews and slavery?
And blocking black voters from getting to the polls?
This is infuriating. YOUR PARTY VOTED AGAINST BLACKS RIGHTS TO VOTE!
But we are racist for asking for ID to preserve the sanctity of our elections? The very ones you declare have been stolen by Russian Collusion?
I guess it’s racist to ask for ID for Alcohol and Cigarettes too…right?
You’re just a sorry ignoramus. Go eat a bowl of unwashed ducks.
All that being said, Dinesh D’Souza got his due, even with your stupidity attempt to get in the way. On Amazon he has 4.3 out of 5 ranking after several hundred reviews.
Go watch it. It is really well done, and connects the dots between Democrats from then and now. Little has changed. They want power, control, and they don’t care how they get it.
