Dinesh D'Souza: Inner Cities Bear Chilling Resemblance to Slave Dwellings

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.

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
