Review: Hillary’s America: The History of the Democratic Party
February 22, 2017
Summary: Dinesh D’Souza, the director of the film, illustrates what he believes are the real political intentions of the Democratic party through media, posters, artifacts, etc. He also attempts to represent the ways in which the Democratic Party is corrupt. Specifically, he calls the Democratic Party racist and greedy throughout the documentary. The film also takes patriotism to a whole new level and attempts to illustrate that the Democratic Party is attempting to transform America. Viewers are left to agree or disagree with D’Souza and his depiction of the Democratic Party, depending on the beliefs of the person watching.
Who would love it: Supporters of the Republican Party that truly despise Hillary Clinton and the rest of the Democratic Party.
Why: The documentary illustrates the Republican Party’s concerns about the Democratic Party and depicts flaws of Democratic leaders such as Hillary Clinton that Republicans may agree with. The movie also reels in more support for the Republican Party and makes them look better than other groups in politics.
Who will hate it: Supporters of the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton supporters.
Why: The movie insults and bashes the Democratic Party, targeting Hillary Clinton for her work in politics, and raises many arguments that Democrats may not agree with. Democrats may be disgusted at the questions and arguments the movie brings to the political atmosphere, therefore turning away viewers who favor the Democratic Party.
