Dinesh D’Souza just gave a history lesson that the Democrat party is going to hate.
The author and director of Hillary’s America appeared on Fox News’ Justice with Judge Jeanine on Saturday and said the Clintons are “worthy successors” to the racist and sexist Democrat party.

“The 13th Amendment was the amendment that permanently abolished slavery. The Republicans pushed it, the Democrats unanimously – I mean as a block – opposed it,” he said. “The 14th Amendment granted equal rights under the law — not a single Democrat voted for it. The Republicans once again got it through. The 15th Amendment was the right to vote. Republicans pushed it through. The Democrats, again, in uniform opposition.”
D’Souza said that the Democrats of today “claim to be the party of the good guys, of the little guys, of minorities, of women” but “the real history is that the Democrats blocked women’s suffrage. They were the party of the Ku Klux Klan, they were the party of immigration restrictions (and) forced sterilization.”
And, he said, modern Democrats will admit that the history is correct but will argue that it is “ancient history” and that it’s all changed. But has it?
“There are so many chilling similarities between the old slave plantations, the rural plantations, that the Democratic party used to run and what’s going on in the inner cities (today),” he said. “If you look at what life was like, you had ramshackle dwellings, broken families – a lot of illegitimacy, a lot of violence necessary to hold the place together because slavery as based on coercion. Everybody had a meager living, you’d get healthcare for example, but no one ever got ahead. A lot of nihilism, a lot of hopelessness, a lot of despair. Well that’s exactly what you see today.”
