Hillary’s America by Indian American conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, takes audiences on a gripping journey into the secret history of the Democratic Party and the contentious rise of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
In Hillary’s America, New York Times #1 best-selling author and celebrated filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza attempts to tell his side of the story about Hillary and the history of the Democratic Party. “This eye-opening film sheds light on the Democrats’ transition from pro-slavery to pro-enslavement; how Hillary Clinton’s political mentor was, literally, a cold-blooded gangster; and how the Clintons and other Democrats see foreign policy not in terms of national interest, but in terms of personal profit,” says a report by the from the creators of America: Imagine The World Without Her and 2016: Obama’s America .
And with the anti-Hillary film now becoming the highest-grossing documentary of the year to date at the U.S. box office, the decision to time the release of the film with the Democratic and the Republican national conventions is reaping rich dividends. The docu-drama has made $5.2 million in just 12 days. “Oh no! IndieWire is calling me the new Michael Moore! Did I just lose 50 IQ points? Say it ain’t so!” D’Souza quipped on his Facebook page July 27.
“To understand Hillary, we must solve the Hillary enigma. The Hillary enigma is why anyone – any American, any Democrat, even Bill – would consider voting for her,” reads the opening sentence of the book “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” by author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza.
“What I am hoping the movie will do is reach well-meaning people in the middle, sincere Democrats who go ‘I can’t believe this,’” he was quoted as saying by Fox News.
“We have had people who have been in the movie, particularly minorities particularly Hispanics and blacks, and they say ‘Dinesh the only question I have to ask you, is this true? Because if they are true it changes everything,’” he was quoted as saying.
According to Hollywood Reporter, the 100-minute film doesn’t pretend to be nonpartisan. A trailer for the doc refers to Bill and Hillary Clinton as “depraved crooks” and Democrats as “the party of corruption” that is associated with slavery, lynchings, the KKK and forced sterilization.
Along with analyzing Clinton’s time as President Obama’s secretary of state and her motives, the film challenges the core policies of the Democratic Party. D’Souza, a conservative commentator who shot to fame with his Obama documentary, also comes with some baggage of his own. In 2014, he pleaded guilty to violating federal campaign finance fraud.
He served as president of The King’s College in New York City from 2010 to 2012, when he abruptly resigned after it was revealed that D’Souza, married with one daughter, had an extramarital affair.
