NEW YORK – Conservative filmmaker and bestselling author Dinesh D’Souza has given WND permission to make public the trailer for his new feature film, “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party.”
The trailer is scheduled to debut officially Saturday at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C., as part of D’Souza’s presentation on a panel.
The panel, “Hollywood, Media and Education: The Three Strongholds of the Left,” is scheduled for the main stage at CPAC in the Potomac Ballroom at 1:05 p.m.
“Hillary’s America” will open in more than 1,500 theaters nationwide during the week of July 25, coinciding with the opening of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
See D’Souza’s works at the WND Superstore, including “America: Imagine The World Without Her,” “2016: Obama’s America,” “God Forsaken,” “Roots of Obama’s Rage” and “What’s So Great About Christianity.”
“The Democrats at their national presidential nominating convention in Philadelphia will be meeting in July to put out their official story of the Democratic Party’s role in American history, and we will be opening in theaters across the country to put out the counter-narrative – namely, the truth,” D’Souza told WND in an interview Thursday.
The film begins with scenes from the San Diego halfway house where D’Souza was confined nightly in fulfillment of his sentenced for pleading guilty to violations of federal campaign-finance law. Many conservatives claimed the Obama administration was exacting revenge on D’Souza for criticizing the president in “2016: Obama’s America.” Gerald R. Molen, producer of D’Souza’s two previous films, told WND in January 2015 the charges were “the equivalent of prosecuting a political dissident in the Soviet Union for jaywalking.”
As WND reported last November, during his confinement, D’Souza wrote his most recent bestselling book, “Stealing America: What My Experience with Criminal Gangs Taught me About Obama, Hillary, and the Democratic Party.”
In the book, D’Souza applied lessons he learned from the criminals in detention with him, which, he said, enabled him to decipher what he considers the true nature of Democratic Party politics. He sees Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and modern liberalism “not as a defective movement of ideas” but as a criminal enterprise.
D’Souza explained he is following a pattern that has proved successful for two previous documentaries, each accompanied by a No. 1 New York Times bestselling book.
He said the new feature film combines themes from the book “Stealing America” with a new book he is writing with the same title as the film that also will be released the week of July 25.
“The movie begins with ‘Stealing America,’ with my trial and confinement, and then it moves into ‘Hillary’s America,'” he said. “In the rest of the movie, I am out of confinement; I’m going in search of the story to uncover the secret history the Democratic Party wants to hide from voters.”
The trailer contains dramatic scenes exposing the role of the Democratic Party in supporting slavery prior to the start of the Civil War, lynching during Reconstruction and racial segregation through much of the 20th century.
D’Souza pointed out that the recent controversy whipped up by former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke’s endorsement of Donald Trump, shows the determination the modern Democratic Party has to pin a charge of racism on the modern GOP.
“The Democrats try to bury their past,” D’Souza said. “But when forced to admit their true roots, the Democrats pretend as if the modern Democratic Party switched and became the good guys, while the modern GOP became the bad guys. My new movie explodes this switcheroo myth.”
“Hillary’s America,” he said, shows the Democrats never switched.
“Instead, modern Democrats have simply figured out a bigger and better scam that they are pulling on the American people,” he said. “The modern Democrats have figured out how to go from just exploiting African Americans to exploiting the everyday productive American citizen.”
