Dinesh D’Souza: Dems do try to jail opponents

Federalist documents 16 times that critics of Obama, Clinton have been targeted for prison.

A filmmaker who has released projects critical of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton is telling WND he’s amused that Democrats – all of a sudden – are rejecting the idea of trying to jail a political opponent in America.

Because the Democrats did exactly that to him.

And a new report reveals that there are at least 16 recent cases where those circumstances have been present.

The issue has arisen because of GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s promise during Sunday night’s debate to have a special prosecutor look into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, where she used a private, non-secure server to handle some of the nation’s classified security secrets. The FBI found she was “extremely careless” but it did not recommend a criminal prosecution.

Democrats reacted with outrage that such an idea – jail for a criminal offense if there would be a conviction – would even be considered.

Former attorney general Eric Holder tweeted: In the USA we do not threaten to jail political opponents.

Trump pulls back curtain on ‘urban plantations’

GOP nominee ‘making a real bid not only for black vote but for well-meaning white vote’

Donald Trump’s push for black voters with his well-received speech in Milwaukee was hailed as nothing less than historic by experts who have argued Democrats are vulnerable on racial issues.

Dinesh D’Souza, author of “Hillary’s America” and director and writer of the blockbuster film of the same name, said Trump’s speech was a bold and necessary step for Republicans.

“He is the first Republican that I’ve seen in a long time to go in this direction,” D’Souza told WND. “Generally Republicans are very wary of this topic. They play nice, but they don’t really address core issues. And it looks like Trump is making a real bid here not only for the black vote but for the well-meaning white vote. And by that, I mean I think this will benefit Trump not only with blacks but with whites. I think it shows a boldness to go where Republicans generally don’t go.”

However, D’Souza urged Trump to go farther.

“He’s talking about something that is quite right, which is that blacks are not better off under Obama, that the ‘urban plantations,’ as I call them, are places where misery, poverty, nihilism and despair reign. That this is the handiwork of the Democratic Party.

Box Office: Dinesh D’Souza’s ‘Hillary’s America’ Becomes Top Grossing Doc of 2016

The decision to time the opening of the scathing takedown of presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to the Republican and Democratic conventions seems to be paying off.

Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza has added another win: Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party has quickly become the top-grossing documentary of the year to date at the U.S. box office, amassing $5.2 million in its first dozen days.

That’s the best showing of any documentary since Amy Winehouse doc Amy earned $8.2 million following its release on July 3, 2015. And among 2016 docs, Hillary’s America easily trumps the $4.1 million grossed by Imax documentary A Beautiful Planet and the $3.8 million grossed by Michael Moore’s Where to Invade Next.

Among political documentaries, Hillary’s America already ranks No. 10.

D’Souza’s 100-minute film takes doesn’t pretend to be non-partisan. A trailer for the doc refers to Bill and Hillary Clinton — who on Tuesday became the first female presidential nominee of any major party — as “depraved crooks” and Democrats as “the party of corruption” that is associated with slavery, lynchings, the KKK and forced sterilization.

The decision to time the opening of Hillary’s America to the Republican and Democratic National Conventions has paid off for Souza and distributor Quality Flix.

Dinesh D’Souza’s ‘Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party’ Premieres in Hollywood (Video)

Hundreds of eager fans and conservative celebrities packed the premiere of Dinesh D’Souza’s latest film, Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party, at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood Monday night.

Before the screening, D’Souza explained that his latest film is tonally different than his previous documentaries, 2016: Obama’s America and America: Imagine the World Without Her, adding that if he had to pick a genre for Hillary’s America, it would be horror.

The 55-year-old filmmaker said that if every American could see this film, it would be “impossible for Hillary Clinton to get elected.”

“We’re opening our film July 22nd, about two weeks from now, right between the two conventions,” D’Souza said. “The idea is that the Democrats, the Hillary Democrats, have their narrative, and we will have our counter-narrative opening in 1,500 theaters across the country.”

The 100-minute film differs from D’Souza’s previous efforts in that it uses narrative elements mixed with interviews to present a complete picture of the history of the Democratic Party, starting with slave-owning President Andrew Jackson and guiding viewers through Margaret Sanger’s founding of Planned Parenthood and up to President Woodrow Wilson, who screened the Ku Klux Klan-glorifying movie The Birth of a Nation at the White House.

Campus Reform: Gonzaga Admits Mistake, Opens D’Souza Speech To Public

Gonzaga University reverses it’s own decision and will now allow the public to attend my upcoming lecture, admitting that the ban was based on my “words and views.”

Gonzaga University has overturned its decision to close an upcoming lecture by Dinesh D’Souza to the public, conceding that the restriction was based on concerns about his words and views.

“The primary issue leading to the decision to not open the event to the public was a concern over the potential hurtfulness of Mr. D’Souza’s words/views, and that this might serve to create a hostile learning environment,” University President Thayne McCulloh told the school community Friday in a statement that was also shared with Campus Reform.

Conservative students expressed outrage last week upon being informed that only students, faculty, and staff of the university would be allowed to attend the February 24 lecture, claiming they were told that “D’Souza’s beliefs are contradictory to Gonzaga’s ‘social justice’ mission,” and specifically that “he is ‘homophobic’ and ‘anti-immigration’.”

Gonzaga initially countered that “the parameters of this event are in line with Gonzaga’s longstanding and common practice of balancing a broad spectrum of viewpoints while providing a supportive learning environment,” but has now revised that determination in response to an official appeal from the school’s College Republicans chapter.

“A clear intention of the policy is to make the outright prohibition of a speaker’s appearance on campus a decision of last resort,” McCulloh notes after elaborating on the original rationale for restricting attendance at the lecture.

DEBATE: D’Souza Faces Off With Bill Ayers On American Exceptionalism (Video)

On Wednesday, February 3, Dinesh D’Souza went head-to-head with the radical Bill Ayers on the University of Michigan campus on the topic “What’s so exceptional about America?”

The event, sponsored by the Young America’s Foundation, drew over 500 people on campus and over 15,000 viewers live online.

Ayers is a retired liberal professor with a storied past. Jerome Corsi at WND explains:

“Ayers’s Weather Underground, which he co-founded with his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, was blamed for dozens of bombings aimed at destroying the defense and security infrastructure of the U.S.

Ayers previously called the Weather Underground ‘an American Red Army’ and said the objective was to: ‘Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents.’

In his memoir, he wrote: ‘Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon. The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them.’

Dinesh D’Souza Faces Off With Bill Ayers in Debate — and Stings Him With One Devastating Response (Video)

“You bombed the Pentagon…how much time did you do in the slammer?”

Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza faced off with retired liberal professor Bill Ayers Wednesday evening at the University of Michigan — and appeared to briefly get the better of him during a back-and-forth on the criminal justice system.

The two political commentators were asked if they felt the criminal justice system “has become too political.” Ayers responded first.

“Our political justice system is a catastrophe. It’s a catastrophe,” he said. “And what was exposed in Ferguson, that the criminal just system is kind of powered … by the kind of targeting of poor people. That’s true in Ferguson, that’s true in Chicago.”

American Thinker: “Stealing America” Review

D’Souza ends his book with suggestions for exposing and defeating the progressive con—a task that requires courage, confrontation, and inroads into the near monopoly progressives enjoy in academics, journalism, and the entertainment industry. Stealing America is also filled with raw conversations between D’Souza and fellow inmates—exchanges that provide significant insight into the world these criminals and their hapless government overseers inhabit.

A liberal who’s been mugged, it’s said, becomes a conservative. But what does a conservative become when he’s mugged by a corrupt, politically driven justice system? Dinesh D’Souza’s latest book, Stealing America: What My Experience with Criminal Gangs Taught Me About Obama, Hillary, and the Democratic Party answers that question. D’Souza now views the Progressive movement as a criminal enterprise designed to pull off the biggest heist in world history—effective control of the enormous wealth created by America’s entrepreneurs. This bounty, the author argues, was made possible by the country’s embrace of a capitalist system that rewards industry and customer-centered innovation and discourages the hitherto ubiquitous ethic of theft. Democrats, however, through a reversal of traditional American values, seek to acquire power by vilifying wealth-creators and rewarding “victims” with trickle-down shares of the national loot—all while portraying themselves as righteous advocates of social justice.

D’Souza’s book begins by discussing aspects of his prosecution for illegally contributing $20,000 to a friend running for a Senate seat in New York State. Of his case Harvard Professor Alan Dershowitz commented, “What you did is very commonly done in politics, and on a much bigger scale. Have no doubt about it, they are targeting you for your views.” Dershowitz’s opinion coincided with D’Souza’s own—namely, that his politics and especially the negative portrait of Obama in his 2016 documentary had ticked off the protagonist-in-chief himself. Clinton-appointed judge Richard Berman, however, denied D’Souza access to papers that could prove selective prosecution, arguing in Alice in Wonderland fashion that only evidence of selective prosecution could justify access to papers that would provide such evidence.
