Dinesh D'Souza Says His 'New Movie Is Gonna Earn Me Life In Prison'

Back in 2012, Dinesh D'Souza released a "documentary" claiming that President Obama held "Third World anti-American" views and was working to systematically weaken and undermine this nation.

Two years later, D'Souza pled guilty to using straw donors to make illegal campaign contributions and was sentenced to eight months in a confinement center and five years of probation. 

Those two events are unrelated — D'Souza admitted to making the illegal donations — but he is convinced that he was specifically targeted and persecuted by the Obama administration for having made the anti-Obama film.

Appearing at CPAC on Saturday to promote his latest laughable film, which asserts that the main goal of the Democratic Party from its founding to today has been to "steal America," D'Souza declared that if his last movie got him "eight months in the slammer, this new movie is gonna earn me life in prison."

"It is a sordid history of the Democratic Party from the very beginning all the way through Hillary [Clinton]," D'Souza said of his film. "The Democrats want us to believe that they're the party of equal rights and human rights and civil rights. The truth is the Democrats are the party of slavery, and Indian removal, of broken treaties and the Trail of Tears, they're the party of segregation and Jim Crow and lynching and the Ku Klux Klan, they're the party of Japanese internment, and opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Fair Housing Bill of 1968."

"This is their actual history," he continued, "so what they do is they try to cover it up and the way they try to cover it up is by blaming America, America did this and America did that. But the reality is that America didn't do it, the Democrats did."
