Who is killing America? Is it really Donald Trump and a GOP filled with white supremacists? In a major new work of historical revisionism, Dinesh D'Souza makes the provocative case that Democrats are the ones killing America by turning it into a massive nanny state modeled on the Southern plantation system. This sweeping alternative history of the Democratic Party goes back to its foundations in the antebellum South. The slaveholding elite devised the plantation as a means of organizing labor and political support. It was a mini welfare state, a cradle to grave system that bred dependency and punished any urge to independence. This model impressed northern Democrats, inspiring the political machines that traded government handouts for votes from ethnic immigrant blocs. Today's Democrats have expanded to a multiracial plantation of ghettos for blacks, barrios for Latinos, and reservations for Native Americans. Whites are the only holdouts resisting full dependency, and so they are blamed for the bigotry and racial exploitation that is actually perpetrated by the left. Death of a Nation's bracing alternative vision of American history explains the Democratic Party's dark past, reinterprets the roles of figures like Van Buren, FDR and LBJ, and exposes the hidden truth that racism comes not from Trump or the conservative right but rather from Democrats and progressives on the left.

Dinesh D'Souza was given a six month jail sentence for an illegal campaign donation of $20,000 whereas most violators of this magnitude usually get a slap on the wrist. Obama's campaign was fined $375,000 for violating federal disclosure laws but no one saw a day in jail. In this book you see an alternative vision of American history, one that explains the dark and problematic past of the Democratic Party, that radically reinterprets the roles of Wilson, FDR, and LBJ, and exposes the hidden truth that racism today, as in the past, comes not from the conservative right but rather from democrats and progressives on the left. Read the book and see the movie.

ad hominem attacks and name calling do not add to the discourse. D'Souza was convicted of donating to the campaign of a college friend who was running, and never had a chance of winning anyway. Do a favor for a college friend and wind up in jail. Welcome to the progressive's Orwellian vision for America.

The book provides forgotten history about race politics. Corollary to Santayana: we will never move forward towards MLK's dream if we forget our history.

A great book by an expert who actually researches and uncovers the truth about American history. He was conviction was pardoned as it was an obvious sham by an childish administration bent on quashing anyone disagreeing with their fantasy narrative and deviant practices.

Another awful book from a self appointed expert, this one espousing that we need to dissolve the Democratic party and adopt a one party system, run by Christians. Same guy who was convicted of a felony for unlawful campaign contributions (and ran a Christian college for a couple years).

Will this ever end? Will we ever again see a bipartisan political system run by common sense and respect for the American people? Not if these types have their way...
