Author and controversial filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza is concerned that his new movie, “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” could get him sent to prison for the rest of his life.
As far fetched as it might sound, following the release of his film “2016: Obama’s America,” D’Souza ended up spending eight months in federal confinement for violating a campaign finance law.
D’Souza spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) and said:
“If that film got me eight months in the slammer, this new movie is going to earn me life in prison. It’s time to take the gloves off.”
D’Souza’s new film takes on the Democratic party. It exposes what most Republicans already know, but most Democrats don’t want to know: that the Democratic party is the party that fought to keep slavery legal, gave rise to Jim Crow and groups like the KKK.
D’Souza told CPAC that the Democrats try to sell the notion that their party is the party of civil rights, in spite of its truly sordid past that proves just the opposite. But it is the Democratic party’s insistence on blaming America as a whole while diverting attention away from themselves that has the filmmaker pushing back:
“The reality is America didn’t do it, the Democrats did. Now, another story from the Democrats is they changed, that somehow recently they became enlightened and they became the good guys and the bad guys all became the Republicans. This is the story of the so-called switch. But the truth of it is there never was a switch. The Democrats now are the same as they always were.
This concept of “you work, I eat” is still the center of the politics of the Democratic Party. They were playing plantation politics back then and they are playing plantation politics right now.”
You’ll be able to catch the movie in theaters the week of the Democratic Party convention.
