Not since 1860 have the Democrats so fanatically refused to accept a free election. That year, their target was Lincoln. Now, their target is President Trump and his supporters. Through historical recreations and a searching examination of fascism and white supremacy, this documentary exposes hidden history and explosive truths.

This movie is well researched and a must-see. This deserves 5 stars but this app would NOT let me give 5 stars. What’s up with that????

For a factual explanation of the root cause of the issues the film raises see “The System Who Rigged It, How We Fix It” by Reich, Robert B.

This film is misguided, hypocritical propaganda, as always is the case with propaganda. Grossly unsupported leaps of reason from beginning to end. Opening scene is of the creator as a child reading history and asking questions, a warning of the childish reasoning to come. Then comes an exhausting montage of clips from the 2016 presidential campaign media coverage. Without explanation the opening barrage of endless clips interestingly enough shows itself to be the zeitgeist of our times. The ceaseless stream of snippets that shower us daily and are so easily manipulated, misleading and incomplete, much like this film. As the propaganda progresses some historical interesting facts are present, but is clearly cherry picked and ignores inconvenient historical facts. Lacking nuance and something more than a narrow black and white understanding of the world, facts are distorted and conjoined with wild conspiracy to form a Frankenstein’s monster of fiction. I feel sorry for the Columbia historian interviewee who probably didn't realize that he'd be plopped into a film that doesn't live up to the academic rigor he represents and is used to. A hypocritical quote from the movie is telling. "What's going on is the falsifying and reshaping of history", said about Margarete Sanger in regards to her views on eugenics being left out of Planned Parenthood literature is all the more true about this film itself. Nitpicking on and twisting convenient details while painting the rest with broad brush strokes a truly slanted view comes alive. Blatant conflations explain a twisted theory that, because Republicans, led by Lincoln ended slavery, therefore Democrats to this day are in favor of slavery, and somehow because Hitler built on the eugenics movement and US racism (slavery) therefore Democrats are fascist like Hitler. Some of the visual effects are well done, others cheesy, same said for the historical reenactments. A highlight is a bizarre interview of a far right extremist that shows what happens when two misguided fear mongers test each other’s ideologies. As the film comes to an end the creator who often features himself throughout the film grandiosely compares himself to the White Rose, a Nazi resistance group fighting the good fight by speaking out against tyranny. As if he couldn’t help himself there’s not just one musical number, but two musical interludes to end on a high note. However, music is not enough to help us to forget that as it denounces the propaganda, attitudes and atrocities of the past this is a hypocritical example of modern day propaganda. Pure hypocrisy... This film is only recommended for gaining insight into what sort of mentality, and distorted and narrow beliefs extremism creates. Probably also reinforces extremism for some, but that is not recommended.

In a version of reality that speaks only to Maagaa/aluminium hat wearers:

Hitler was a liberal, slavery was an outgrowth of socialist principles and Democrats have updated the cotton plantation for modern times.

This laughable farce includes an interview with Richard Spencer, the white nationalist; clips borrowed from Project Veritas, the right-wing undercover sting operation; as well as some musical interludes, including an embarassing voice performance by D’Souza’s wife, Debbie.

Dinesh D'Souza is also a convicted felon.

He promised two people that he would reimburse them if they donated $10,000 each to the Republican candidate challenging Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.) in 2012. “I deeply regret my conduct,” D’Souza told the judge in federal District Court in Manhattan, who sentenced him in 2014 to five years of probation and a $30,000 fine.

Drumpf pardoned D’Souza in May, 2018. Saying "Bee derp, bigly, sad and cofe

You can tell this is a dvd for morons since they bring up democrats going after Lincoln and comparing them to Democrats of today. The idiot trump supporters can't seem to learn that it was the racist Dixiecrats that hated Lincoln. The southern Dixiecrats are the same racist republicons of today. I wish trump supporters were smart enough to read a history book.

Progressives hate the truth and this DVD. This historical summary will explain how the Democratic party was started and the foundations of the party of anti-slavery or the Republican party. It is worth watching if you have an open mind. I also recommend the book by D'Souza, America, if you want to understand what has made America great and how wealth is created. FIVE STARS
