This week my husband and I went to see Dinesh D'Souza's movie, "Hillary's America." The fairly brief part at the end that actually focused on Hillary, Bill, The Clinton Foundation, etc., was very disturbing. This woman and her cartel will be very dangerous should she be elected to the Presidency. The movie was very persuasive on this point.
Mr. D'Souza began with the time he was briefly a political prisoner in the U.S., having been convicted and sentenced to jail time for an infraction (giving anonymously a larger than allowed campaign contribution to a friend) for which no one else had ever spent time in prison. His rather lengthy reenactment of his time in prison, besides the human interest aspect, showed how his interaction with other inmates led to his theory that the Democrat Party has adopted criminal methods to scam the voters and attain power.
To this point the movie was very powerful and credible. Then Mr. D'Souza engages in revisionist history, which I, as a history buff, deplore. The truth of history would have served him just as well had he bothered to broaden his research.
Knowing how news and current events are slanted today and how disinformation is a calculated strategy, why does it never occur to researchers that they must consult both Northern and Southern versions to properly understand that contentious time? Many Southerners are going to be offended by this movie, and on their behalf I will address some of the discrepancies:
