I Watched Dinesh D’Souza’s New Movie with the Travis County GOP
D’Souza is lying to his audiences on a vast scale, making them more immune to a shared reality.
Almost every paragraph contains a treasure:
“Death of a Nation opens, auspiciously, in Hitler’s bunker, where the famous baddie from Bavaria callously induces Eva Braun to commit suicide, then holds a pistol to his temple. He looks directly at the camera, holds the gaze, and then — pop. Soldiers burn his body, and the title card appears. No explanation is ever given for this sequence of events.
“The movie is a mishmash of historical re-enactments like this and interviews by D’Souza with contemporary figures, sprinkled with a bit of D’Souza’s narcissism. Of the 2016 election result, he says, “My exposé played a part,” as if he were the first person to make a movie that said that Hillary Clinton was bad. It’s all threaded together by bad history, delivered by D’Souza’s portentous voiceover. Extremely, extremely bad history.”
We’ve long noted that D’Vorce D’Spousa’s one-trick pony is all about redefining moments in history to suit his dishonest purposes, and this review shows them in spades.
Anyway, it is funny AND informative. This movie sounds like a bunch of Republican Memes come to life, and also shows us once again that D’Vorce D’Spousa stole Johan ‘Doughy Pantload’ Goldberg’s grift, and really has no other arrow in his quiver.
