HILLARY’S AMERICA: THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY
 
By: John ‘Doc’ Strange
 
 
I didn’t expect this to be a sweet story of what a good person Hillary is and I was correct.  The opening song slams the entire Democratic Party in full color, complete with scenes from history and a wooden donkey marionette.
 
The director, Dinesh D’Souza, begins his film with a re-enactment of his conviction for a campaign finance law violation for a contribution he gave to his friend, Wendy Long that exceeded the legal donation limit.  He got eight months of nightly incarceration, five years probation and eight hours of community service per week for five years and participate in weekly therapeutic counseling.
 
He then told us about his previous film, 2016: Obama’s America.  It was HIGHLY critical of the Obama administration and its accomplishments.
 
He tells us of his awakening in the overnight incarceration establishment.  He has previously concentrated on how things should be, he now sees he should take a look at the life on the streets.  His conversations with his fellow inmates are very enlightening, especially the insurance scam.  Following these discussions he looks at one of the BIG gangs, the Democratic Party and how they do business.
 
This film is graphic in its depictions of slavery and the punishments applied to them.  The director attaches a lot of the Democratic Party’s actions today to their support of slavery prior to the Civil War.  He likens the Civil War as a war between the Republican (non-slave) and Democratic (slave owning) parties.
 
He talks about many different issues including slavery, the Ku Klux Klan, gun control and voter rights.  D’Souza interviews lawyers and journalists to bring to light the information he feels is important for each of us to know and understand.
 
It’s only in the last 25 minutes of the film that D’Souza gets to Hillary.  The picture he paints of her is frightening in its detail of her shenanigans and manipulations.
 
This film is a history lesson.  Is it accurate?  I can’t say.  That is for you to decide.  But whatever you decide, D’Souza’s vision of the state of America is dark and dire.  He lightens the mood at the end with perhaps the most stirring rendition of the Star Spangled Banner I have ever had the pleasure to experience.
