MN Congressional District 4 is hosting a pre-screening of Dinesh D’souza’s new film: “Death of a Nation.”
“Who is killing America? Is it really Donald Trump and a GOP filled with white supremacists? In a major new work by #1 New York Times bestselling author Dinesh D’Souza, you will find a compelling case that Democrats are the ones killing America by turning it into a massive nanny state modeled on the Southern plantation system.”
Death of a Nation presents the shocking story of the Democratic Party’s dark past, reinterprets the roles of figures like Van Buren, FDR and LBJ, and exposes the hidden truth that racism comes not from Trump or the conservative Right, but rather from Democrats and progressives on the Left.
