Have you ever wondered what the world looks like to a Fox News addict on five tabs of acid? If so, Dinesh D’Souza has a trailer for you.
The conservative academic turned reactionary propagandist is out with a sequel to 2016: Obama’s America. In that film, D’Souza revealed that Barack Obama is actually an anti-colonialist revolutionary who is deliberately driving up the national debt in order to bring down America from within. Four years and one conviction for campaign-finance violations later, D’Souza has attained a whole new level of wokeness.
The trailer for Hillary’s America opens with a dramatization of D’Souza’s months-long stint in a confinement center. The Indian American* intellectual sits across from large, tattooed convicts, taking notes on their street-smart insights. D’Souza’s voice-over then passes on what he has learned from such conversations: “All crime is about stealing. The big criminals are still at large.” The camera pans up to a small television monitor where Hillary Clinton is giving a press conference. “The system doesn’t go after them,” he continues, as the camera settles on the back of Obama’s head. “Because they run the system. It’s time to go behind the curtain and discover the soul of the Democratic Party.”
D’Souza then reveals that Abraham Lincoln was actually a Republican and Democrats were the ones who supported slavery! We see an African-American woman being whipped by her masters, the ghost of a Klansman galloping out from a movie screen, a lynch mob hanging a noose from a tree. D’Souza then notes that in the 20th century, Democrats went from slavery to “enslavement,” which is apparently a synonym for supporting “corrupt unions” and legal abortion as a means of eugenics. By the end, Supreme Leader Hillary Clinton is shown addressing an adoring crowd in some future totalitarian United States, as D’Souza asks, “What if the goal of the Democratic Party is to steal the most valuable thing the world has ever produced? What if their plan is to steal America?”
The film is set to open this summer. If the Republican race plays out as expected, the doc should premiere just as Donald Trump is accepting the GOP nomination. Which will probably be a good time to remind America that the Democrats are the real racists.
