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.

Soros is trying to elect MORE TEXAS RINOs. Here's how YOU can stop him.

Texas is under threat of a George Soros-backed takeover.

Soros-funded RINO judges have been elected in some of the highest courts in Texas. These judges implemented restrictions that have blocked nearly a thousand cases of voter fraud from being investigated or prosecuted from across the state. These new restrictions are similar to ones in place in states like George, Arizona, and Wisconsin, leaving Texas more susceptible to election corruption than ever. If Texas falls to corruption, America will lose its largest bastion of conservative electoral power in the nation. Without Texas, Republicans WILL NOT be able to win national elections and liberal corruption will go unchecked across the country.

Fortunately, there is a way to stop this: YOU.

If you live in Texas you have a chance to stand up against corruption and to fight back! Starting Tuesday, February 20th, early voting for the primaries begins, where three of these judges are up for election. Go out and vote. If the right people are voted in, there's a good chance the restrictions will be lifted and election fraud can once again be prosecuted.

But remember, you can't just go in and vote for anyone who has an "R" next to their name. Sorors knows that a registered Democrat would never stand a chance in Texas, so his lackeys register as Republicans and ride the little "R" right into office. So who do you vote for?

Fortunately, Glenn had Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on his show today and Ken gave us his list of judges that he vouches for. His list is as follows:

  • Gina Parker
  • Lee Finley
  • David Schenck
The Primary Election runs from February 20th to March 5th. This is your chance to get out there and make a difference. It might be the most important election you ever participate in. If you need to know where your nearest polling location is, or any other information regarding the election, you can go to votetexas.gov to find out more.
It's time to stand up.

Hypocrisy EXPOSED: The 'Amazon Files' and what WE are doing about it

Who is really banning books?

For years now, Conservatives have been taking flak from the left for supposed "book bans." The left likes to compare these "bans" to Nazi book burnings, accusing the right of sweeping authoritarian decrees designed to suppress information. In reality, this is a movement largely motivated by parents, who want to remove inappropriate books from children's libraries.

But if you want to discuss authoritarian book bans, look no further than the White House. As Glenn recently covered, the Biden administration has been pressuring the world's largest bookseller, Amazon, into suppressing books they disagree with.

On February 5th, 2024, Ohio Representative Jim Jordan released a slew of subpoenaed documents that exposed pressure placed on Amazon by the Biden Administration. The documents, which Jordan dubbed "The Amazon Files" after Elon Musk's "The Twitter Files," revealed an email conversation between Andrew Slavitt, a former White House senior adviser, and Amazon employees. In these emails, Slavitt complained that the top search results for books on "vaccines" were "concerning" and then requested that Amazon intervene. Amazon initially refused, not out of some altruistic concern for the free exchange of information. They thought any action taken would be "too visible" and would further exasperate the “Harry/Sally narrative,” referring to the outrage that followed Amazon's removal of Ryan T. Anderson’s book When Harry Became Sally.

Despite this initial refusal, Amazon agreed to meet with the White House a few days later. The number one item on their agenda was removing books from the website. An Amazon employee even admitted that the reason they even took this meeting was due to the pressure being placed on them by the Biden Administration.

What was the result of this meeting? Amazon caved. They began to implement ways of limiting the outreach of books that challenged the mainstream vaccine narrative and other books the White House might not like.

The White House was caught red-handed pressuring the world's largest bookseller to restrict the sale of books they consider in opposition to their narrative, and they have the gall to accuse conservatives of information suppression. This is just ONE of many actions committed by the Biden Administration that are more characteristic of a dictator than a president.

What can you do about it? Fortunately, you are not dependent on Amazon and its corrupted algorithm to help you find books. Every week right here on GlennBeck.com, we highlight books that Glenn is reading or talking about in our "Glenn's Bookshelf" series. Here you can find a wide selection of books free from Amazon's filters. Be sure to sign up for Glenn's newsletter to find out about new additions to "Glenn's Bookshelf" every week.

10 times Biden has acted like a DICTATOR

The left-wing media's most recent tirade is accusing Trump of being a dictator. But, as Glenn said, "Everything they're accusing us of, they're doing."

Since day one, the Biden administration has overstepped the bounds placed on the executive branch set by the Constitution. In Glenn's most recent TV Special, he examined ten times Biden acted like a dictator, NOT a president. Here are 10 of Biden's Dictator Moves, and click HERE to get ALL of the research that went into this week's Glenn TV special:

5 ways to protect your First Amendment rights. Number 4 will surprise you.

Every day it seems Glenn covers another story revealing how people across the world at all levels of power DESPISE the fact that YOU have rights, and they are actively trying to curtail them. Recently, there has been a string of attacks against the rights outlined in the First Amendment: the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, the freedom of press, the freedom of assembly, and the freedom to petition.

As a refresher, the First Amendment reads as follows:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This is powerful stuff, there is a good reason the Founding Fathers made it the FIRST Amendment. It's also the reason why power-hungry elites are attacking it. These attacks are designed to control the way you think, speak, and believe, vote, what you read, and who holds your representatives responsible. The First Amendment is our strongest weapon against tyrants, and they know it.

So what can you do about it? Hope that some wig in Washinton will eventually do something? We know how well that works. The best thing to do is to stay active, engage in the issues you care about, and exercise your rights.

So where to start? Here are a few things YOU can do to protect your First Amendment rights:

Religion

The best way to flex your Freedom of Religion is to—you guessed it—practice your faith. Become an active member in your place of worship, go to scripture studies, invite your friends to that late afternoon event, and walk the life. This can impact the way you spend money as well. Shop the businesses and brands that share your values, and don't shop at the ones that scorn them. Keeping the community alive and healthy is the best way to ensure that generations to come will be able to experience the freedom you enjoy.

Speech

Much like religion, the best way to protect your freedom of speech is... to speak. Engage your friends and family in polite, civil conversation. Stand up for what you believe in, and make your case to your peers. Just remember to keep it friendly. No one ever won an argument by shouting down their opponent. The civil exchange of ideas is the cornerstone of our republic, and a dialogue where the participants are well-informed, considerate, compassionate, and open-minded can have permanent impacts on all involved.

Press

Freedom of the Press seems a little tricky at first. Unless you work for the media, what are you supposed to do? Quit your job and go work for the local newspaper? The good news is that exercising this right is not nearly that difficult. In fact, you are currently doing it. The best thing you can do is to read from outlets that produce informative content.

Assembly

Freedom of assembly is one of the more impactful yet underutilized freedoms in the First Amendment. Peaceably assembling and protesting with like-minded individuals can hugely influence politicians and policies while simultaneously creating community and fellowship between attendees. It's understandable why more people don't turn out. We're all busy people with busy schedules, and flying out to D.C. for the weekend seems like a daunting task to many. Thankfully, you don't have to go out all the way to D.C. to make a difference. Gather some like-minded people in your town and bring awareness to issues that impact your community. Big change starts locally, and exercising your freedom to assemble can be the catalyst to lasting impact.

Petition

If you've been a long-time listener of Glenn, then you will have heard a few of his calls to action where he asks his audience to contact their representatives about a particular piece of policy. There is a good reason Glenn keeps on doing those: they work. Whether it's your local mayor or your senator, a call and an email go a long way. If you really want to make a change, convince your friends and family to reach out as well.
