Breitbart: D'Souza's upcoming documentary to compare Trump and Lincoln

Originally posted at Breitbart by John Nolte.

The movie’s poster, which publicizes a release date of August 3, 2018, combines Trump’s and Lincoln’s face and includes images of slavery and the present-day riots leftists have launched on college campuses to stop conservatives from peaceful assembly.

D’Souza told the Hollywood Reporter, a far-left entertainment outlet, that his movie “draws a provocative analogy between Lincoln and Trump. Not that they’re the same people, but that they’ve fallen into the same situation.”

“Not since 1865 have Democrats so dramatically refused to accept the outcome of a presidential election,” he adds.

D’Souza, who was convicted in 2014 of using straw donors to illegally funnel money to a U.S. Senate candidate in 2012, received a full pardon from Trump on May 31. The case was yet another example of former-President Obama using the Department of Justice (like he did the IRS) to persecute his political enemies. Anyone else would have gotten off with a fine. D’Souza was a victim of selective prosecution.

The filmmaker told THR he is well aware of how the optics look; him making a documentary about the man who just pardoned him. He says Trump knew nothing about the project, though, and that he started working on it over a year ago.

This will be D’Souza’s fourth political documentary. His 2016: Obama’s America, a film released in the heart of Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, is the second-highest grossing political documentary of all time ($33.5 million), behind Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11. His two other documentaries, 2014’s America and 2016’s Hillary’s America, are ranked at number six and eight, respectively.

D’Souza’s producing partner, Gerald R. Molen, is the Oscar-winning producer of such hits as Schindler’s List and Jurassic Park.

    This would certainly explain Trump’s enthusiastic pardon of the criminal and unethical documentarian.

    Awaiting the Trump-sanctioned propaganda piece by one of his evangelical cronies wherein Donnie is compared to Jesus the Savior.

    Mr. D’Souza … I’ve fallen head over heels in love with your movie’s poster … Lincoln/Trump … the imagery and meaning hits home in such a profound way. Is there a way to get that as a larger poster? I would really like to put it up on my wall – and keep it there!

    For that matter, if there were small cards that I could pass out to my friends … those would also stimulate interest in your movie if such items were left here and there in places where people haven’t had the opportunity to learn about you.

    What are the chances of anything like that becoming available?

    … and, before I quit, Sir, I’ve watched every video of the talks you’ve given. Thank you for your love for this country! I thank God that He’s given you the keen intelligence to understand the issues in the way you do, and the ability to present them in such a logical, incisive, and clear manner. Would that we had dozens of Dinesh D’Souzas! You have made our Nation a better place. Thank you!
