This week during the Democratic National Convention (DNC) we get to see Hillary’s vision for America — at least the one she wants us to see.
In his highly anticipated documentary — Hillary’s America — Dinesh D’Souza pulls back the curtain on the Democratic party to look at it’s history and roots in progressivism. D’Souza joined Glenn in studio last week to discuss the film, as well as the Democrat’s hidden agenda, usually buried in progressive lies and controlled by political correctness.
“The roots of all the stuff that’s going on with Hillary and the progressives and the Democrats now, you can trace it back — some of it to the 20th century, some of it to the early 20th century, some of it to the 19th century. Hillary was asked recently about whether she was a liberal. And she said, ‘No, I’m not. I’m an early 20th century progressive,'” D’Souza said. “Now, the bizarre thing is that early 20th century movement was thoroughly saturated in eugenics, social Darwinism, racism. And also forced sterilization. It ended up being an inspiration to the Nazis in the 1930s.”
Taking a truthful look behind the curtain reveals frightening facts: The early 20th century progressive movement was all about fascism, communism and socialism.
“I was shocked when she said that. Because to say ‘I’m a progressive’ is one thing, but she specifically said ‘an early 20th century American progressive.’ Those people were horror shows,” Glenn said.
A large part of that horror was Margaret Sanger’s Negro Project, which sought to significantly reduce the African-American population.
“Hillary is kind of an all-American phenomenon, but she situates herself in this, I think, very sordid American tradition. It’s hard to believe she doesn’t know about it because when she came to Houston, of course, in 2009, she got the Margaret Sanger Award. Very self-consciously, she praised Margaret Sanger,” D’Souza said.
While many people, especially those on the left, revere Margaret Sanger as the mother of birth control and modern day Planned Parenthood, she was, in fact, a deeply troubled and racist woman.
“Most people are kind of misled by this. Because they think, ‘Well, of course, Margaret Sanger was for spacing your children or having fewer children.’ And I keep saying, ‘Well, no, Margaret Sanger was for having more children if you were educated and upper class and white, and fewer or no children if you were dark-skinned,'” D’Souza said.
D’Souza’s movie features this history as well as the Democrat’s history in slavery, and how they’ve successfully rebranded their role.
“The proof of that is that most Southerners, of course, did not own slaves. Most Confederate soldiers didn’t own slaves. And the northern Democrats were just as protective of slavery as the southern Democrats. Stephen Douglas, who was the leader of the northern Democrats, his whole point of popular sovereignty was to allow each state to decide for itself if it wanted slavery. And that was to make sure that slavery remained in America. And Douglas also thought it would be cool if it spread to other countries and that slavery was made permanent. In other words, there would never be abolition. And this is a northern Democrat. So when people say the slavery battle was the anti-slavery North and the pro-slavery South, actually, it was the anti-slavery Republican Party versus the pro-slavery Democratic Party,” D’Souza said.
Ted Cruz pointed this out during his speech at the RNC.
“He is the first — at least at a convention that I have seen — major speaker who drew these parallels and said, ‘The Republicans freed the slaves. The Republicans stopped the Democratic Jim Crow laws. The Republicans were the civil rights leaders.’ Nobody says that. Nobody even knows that,'” Glenn said.
Hillary’s America goes so far as to say black people, and others, are still slaves to the government, calling inner cities the new “urban plantations.”
“Look at the chilling resemblance between the old plantation and the new, right? In both cases, we start with a ramshackle dwelling, right? Used to be called the slave quarters. Now it’s public housing or some urban apartment,” D’Souza said. “Why is there so much discontent that makes the job of a cop in these areas so difficult and makes the whole thing so on a hair trigger? And the answer is that these people are living unlivable lives.”
“Right, without hope,” Glenn agreed.
“They have a meager provision, right? There’s food stamps. And if you’re sick, they’ll call the doctor, but that was even true on the plantation. If you got sick, they called a doctor, but no one got ahead. No hope. A kind of nihilism that defined the plantation, and there’s a nihilism that defines inner city life today,” D’Souza said.
This is the legacy of the Democratic Party, as well as founding the Ku Klux Klan and stealing American’s wealth through corrupt deals and legislation.
“If we think about the Democratic Convention, we’re going to be getting their official narrative. And their official narrative is going to be something to this effect: Well, Hillary might be a little bit shady perhaps, but we are the party of the little guy. Of the ordinary man. We have looked out for the outsider — the immigrant, the minorities, Latinos. We’re the ones who liberated the blacks. We’re the ones who did civil rights.
But the truth is something much darker.
To learn about the dark and secret history of the Democrat Party, see Hillary’s America, in theaters now.
“I urge you to go see it. And you can also pick up the book, Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party. The book has all of the footnotes and the facts and everything else. The movie, you don’t want to watch a movie with footnotes, but the movie is based on all of these facts. It’s really good, really well done,” Glenn said.
