Dinesh D'Souza's Film 'Death of a Nation' Exposes Democrats' ‘Big Lie'
[Townhall] In his new film, Death of a Nation, conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza exposes the Democrats’ "big lie" that conservatives are fascists and racists.

In the film that is igniting a national conversation about the long-hidden history of the Democratic Party, D’Souza argues that the policies of Democrats and progressives are the intellectual heirs of slavery and genocide, and that their policies helped inspire Nazi Germany and the Holocaust.

In an exclusive interview with Townhall, D’Souza laid out his case.

One of the most striking things revealed in the film is that the Democratic Party was behind slavery, is linked to the Ku Klux Klan and has a long history of racism, and yet Democrats and progressives today say Republicans are racist. What is going on here?

D’Souza: Progressives have dominated the telling of the American narrative. Progressives are the ones who write the history books. Progressives are the ones who typically make the films. I’m sort of a stray dog in that field.

Now, these guys have gone to great lengths to camouflage the crimes of the Democratic Party and pin them on someone else. And that someone else varies. It could be just generically America. It could be generically the white man. And it could be, and frequently is, the South.

Now, this is a historical distortion. When (President Abraham) Lincoln named what he called the four bad guys of slavery, three out of four were northern Democrats.

And then after the Civil War, the Democrats lost the slave plantations so they had to come up with something new and so they invented white nationalism, or what we call today, white supremacy.

The Democratic Party used white nationalism as the glue to hold the party together, especially in the South.

#6  I suggest public movies are no longer germane for the center and right.

#5  The left is unmoved by facts. The issue is to get the center to watch the movie and absorb things. The other issue is how big is the center at this point.

#3  Ironically they now also employ 'black nationalism' by creating the BLM and aligning with (if not sponsoring) the New Black Panthers. And lets not forget La Rasa (which literally means 'the race'... Didn't we hear someting very like that in 1930-40 Germany???)

#2  Today they use the boogeyman of "white nationalism" to hold their party together. They create the problem and profit from opposition to it at the same time.
