PJ Media: D'Souza Says Hillary Film Could Earn Him "Life in Prison"

Originally posted at PJ Media by Nicholas Ballasy.

Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza said his upcoming film about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is going to result in a lifelong prison sentence.

D’Souza said he was locked up for 8 months in a “federal confinement center” for a “relatively minor campaign finance infraction” following the release of his film, 2016, about President Obama.

“If that film got me eight months in the slammer, this new movie is going to earn me life in prison,” he said at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). “It’s time to take the gloves off.”

D’Souza described the film, Hillary’s America, as a sordid history of the Democratic Party from the very beginning all the way through Hillary Clinton.

“The Democrats want us to believe they’re the party of equal rights and human rights and civil rights. The truth is the Democrats are the party of slavery, and Indian removal, of broken treaties and the Trail of Tears, they’re the party of segregation and Jim Crow and lynching and the Ku Klux Klan, they’re the party of Japanese internment, and opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Fair Housing Bill of 1968,” he said. “This is their actual history so what they do is they try to cover it up.”

D’Souza said Democratic politicians attempt to hide their party’s past connections to segregation by “blaming America” as a whole.

“The reality is America didn’t do it, the Democrats did. Now, another story from the Democrats is they changed, that somehow recently they became enlightened and they became the good guys and the bad guys all became the Republicans. This is the story of the so-called switch,” he said. “But the truth of it is there never was a switch. The Democrats now are the same as they always were.”

D’Souza said former President Abraham Lincoln described slavery as “you work, I eat.” According to D’Souza, that defines the modern Democratic Party.

“This concept of ‘you work, I eat’ is still the center of the politics of the Democratic Party. They were playing plantation politics back then and they are playing plantation politics right now,” D’Souza said.

His documentary Hillary’s America is set for release the week of the Democratic Party convention.

“We’re going to be telling the story they don’t want you to know. Here’s how you can help us: Go see the film the opening weekend,” he said, explaining that the film will be shown in more theaters if it does well the first week. “This is how you affect the politics of Hollywood.”

D’Souza appeared on a panel at the conference called “Hollywood, Media and Education: The Three Strongholds Of The Left.”

D’Souza pointed out that filmmaker Michael Moore’s documentary films have been so successful because they are entertaining.

“No one goes to the movies for messaging. You go to the movies for entertainment,” he said. “You’ve got to give it to the guy [Moore]. Out of the top 10 documentaries of all time he has 5.”

He called for conservatives in Hollywood to produce more than documentaries, such as animated films, thrillers and romantic comedies.

“Ultimately, we’ve got to do that kind of stuff too because they [the left] tell their worldview through stories,” he said.

Moderator Mary Katharine Ham, a conservative political commentator, encouraged the audience to see the Broadway play Hamilton.

“The beauty of this play is it is truly unironically a celebration of Alexander Hamilton, pulled himself up from his bootstraps, came from nothing, fought with just his brain and got to the top of American society and really shaped this beautiful thing we have,” she said. “It is serious about that message.”

    I’m praying for you Mr D’Souza… It’s sad how the left preach tolerance but show a very different meaning than what you and I regard as tolerance. They are a very hateful group of people who can not stand the truth and will do anything to keep it from coming out, including imprisonment and death of innocent citizens in this country. But the truth can not be silenced. It’s too strong and always finds its way out. Thank you for exposing their lies and corruption.

    Can’t wait to see the Hillary movie. I will go to view it the first weekend it is out. I gave all three of my children a copy of AMERICA and 2016 OBAMA’S AMERICA. Will be purchasing three copies of this movie as soon it is offered on DVD. All three should be shown at every school in this county. D’Souza, thank you for this wonderful information in dramatic fashion you have given us.

    The underbelly of this is the American Bar Association. The entire legal profession is now part of the cabal to take our rights from us and make them into government privileges. D’Souza was prosecuted in a rigged court where God given rights are NEVER admissible for defence because we no longer convene “common law” courts. Our US Constitution is a common law document so it carries little weight in civil courts. The judges and the lawyers are in bed together to use commercial law for every kind of legal dispute. Thats where the money is to be made. The Bar should be considered a monopoly and crushed out of existence.

    i would like the future president trump to use some of his billions to pay abc, nbs, cbs, npr etc as much as they want to show this on tv like two days before the election. imagine main stream media playing this docu. during prime time two nights before the elction and then giving the dem party just the day before the election to change minds. wont work. but in all actuality these channels wont care how much money trump gives them they wont show it . sad though cause by then hillary will be on the verge of total destruction. they could save face by showing it though and then the people might start believing in them again.
