Carol Swain, a professor of political science and law at Vanderbilt University, is one of the stars of Dinesh D’Souza’s new movie, “Hillary’s America,” which examined in detail the historical racism of the Democratic Party. It’s a story that hasn’t been told by reporters from the liberal media who keep repeating the mantra that Democrats represent minorities, the poor, the downtrodden and the vulnerable.
The movie highlights the fact that Democratic President Woodrow Wilson attended a screening of the pro-KKK film, “The Birth of a Nation,” in the White House itself.
If you don’t want to believe D’Souza’s facts, consider PBS as a source of information on this particular incident:
“On the evening of March 21, 1915, President Woodrow Wilson attended a special screening at the White House of The Birth of a Nation, a film directed by D.W. Griffith and based on The Clansman, a novel written by Wilson’s good friend Thomas Dixon. The film presented a distorted portrait of the South after the Civil War, glorifying the Ku Klux Klan and denigrating blacks.”
The film includes reenactments of historical events, including an actor playing Wilson at the screening of the film nodding and smiling in approval.
Professor Swain, a black conservative, is shown with D’Souza going through various historical documents to highlight the racism of the Democratic Party, which was then considered the home of white supremacists. Swain was a member of Senator Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) Religious Liberty Advisory Council during the campaign.
Of course, as the title suggests, it’s the modern Democratic Party, under the control of Bill and Hillary Clinton, which is the main subject of the film. In one illuminating part, the origins of the push for “birth control” are traced directly to a campaign to produce a superior white race.
In one reenactment, Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, is shown speaking to a women’s auxiliary of the Ku Klux Klan. That’s followed by excerpts of a modern-day Hillary speech expressing her admiration for Sanger.
Liberals have tried to play down Sanger’s involvement with the KKK, saying she spoke to a variety of different groups. But Sanger’s own book, The Pivot of Civilization, included references to eliminating “human weeds” and sterilizing “inferior” races.
Sanger, who died in 1966, was a revolutionary Socialist who was sexually promiscuous and dabbled in the occult. A sympathetic biography said she became “rabidly anti-Catholic as she grew older.”
The introduction to the D’Souza film examines Barack Obama’s foreign policy legacy, especially in the face of Russian aggression in Europe and the Middle East and the rise of global Islamic terror. D’Souza’s previous film was “2016: Obama’s America.”
A reenactment in the new film shows Mrs. Clinton as secretary of state watching a video monitor of Benghazi burning and four Americans dying while she does nothing.
One interesting example of shared interests between Obama and Hillary Clinton is shown in their devotion to the ultimate community organizer, Saul Alinsky. Obama was trained by an Alinsky group in Chicago while Hillary wrote her senior thesis on his organizing techniques and met with him. One reenactment shows her actually advising Alinsky, saying radicals should seize control by taking power from within the government, and not just through outside pressure.
Mrs. Clinton’s continued relationship with former President Clinton, a notorious womanizer accused of sexual assault and even rape, is seen as a partnership that exists to benefit both of them with money and power. That’s brought up to date through an interview with Peter Schweizer, author of Clinton Cash, a book just made into a movie. Both the book and movie examine Clinton financial arrangements and business deals with such regimes as that of Putin’s Russia.
