In the movie Death of a Nation, filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza traces the Democrat “resist” movement to 1860 and the election of Abraham Lincoln. Democrats later resisted the abolition of slavery, the women’s suffrage movement and the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s. The party and its followers are now doing everything possible to resist the agenda of President Donald Trump.

D’Souza documents that Democrats founded the Ku Klux Klan to infringe upon the civil rights of the freed slaves and their succeeding generations. Democrat President Woodrow Wilson led a revival of the Klan in the early 20th Century and segregated the federal government agencies. Today, wealthy leftists George Soros and Tom Steyer are believed to be the principal financiers for antifa, a group which causes mayhem in America’s inner cities as a symbol of resistance. Antifa is supposed to stand for anti-fascist, but the black-uniformed masked thugs in the movement use the same tactics which were employed by fascist leaders Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler in the 1920s and 1930s. He also notes that both leaders were inspired by the leftist principles of communism, which revolve around government control of the economy, authoritarianism, and repression of individual rights.

In addition to documenting that Nazis were leftists (Nazi stands for National Socialist), D’Souza noted that Nazis were inspired by Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger and the segregation laws in the American South. Sanger, the leader of the eugenics movement, said it was the obligation of society to “eliminate the weeds.” She once spoke at a Klan rally and remains a hero to Hillary Clinton and other modern-day Democrats. Hitler’s first foray into genocide was ordering the killing of “useless eaters”, a term given to the mentally and physically handicapped. The segregation movement gave the Nazis the idea of herding Jews into ghettos and stripping them of their civil rights.

The inspiration for the movie title came from a quote by President Ronald Reagan, who said, “A nation dies when its people are not free.” One can argue that Reagan saved America when he routed President Jimmy Carter in the 1980 election and lifted America out of economic and geo-political doldrums. Less than a year after the end of Reagan’s second term, the Berlin Wall came down, and soon after, the Soviet Union collapsed. D’Souza claims that Trump inherited the mantle of Reagan. Trump made a statement in his inaugural address which echoed Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address clause calling for “government of the people, by the people and for the people.” Trump stated the commitment to transfer power from Washington, DC and giving it back to the American people. The Democrats are continuing to “resist” that goal.
