Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza says there is a “gangster-ization” of the Democratic party, meaning that the Democrats are acting like gangsters by exerting the power of government when punishing their political rivals.
D’Souza coined an interesting new term in the word “gangster-ization.” Basically, it just refers to a political party acting like thugs, bullies and gangsters. In this case, it’s referring to those in the Democrat party, especially those in the highest positions of power, acting like gangsters.
For example, look at how D’Souza was punished harshly pertaining to campaign finance. He was punished more harshly than others would have been for the same type of offense. As he says, that was wrong.
Films have been very powerful over the years in conveying important messages. And D’Souza’s most recent film, with the compelling title “Death of A Nation,” opened on August 3. It says that one of the greatest issues for Americans now is the Democrats’ weaponization of government to push political punishment on their enemies.
D’Souza says the gangster type of attitude is creating a great deal of tension and in fact is a huge contributor to the country being so divided these days.
“I attribute this mainly to the gangster-ization of the Democratic Party,” he said. “If I can cite my own case as an example. I was charged by the Obama administration for exceeding campaign finance laws. They threw the weight of the federal government against me…But under Obama and under Hillary, you had this turn in which the weapons of the state are used against political opponents. There’s no way to compromise with that. It’s not like we can have a middle position on that. We actually have to just stop it.”
Interestingly, D’Souza says that even though slavery was abolished so many years ago, as compared to back then, Democrats still have similar toxic attitudes toward black and Latio people and others.
“The Democrats identify an ethnic group and they say, ‘We’re not going to campaign for your votes as individuals,” the filmmaker explained. “We want your votes collectively, and we’re going to create an institutional dependency and inter-generational dependency on the Democratic Party. You’ll never get out of poverty, but we’ll take care of you forever and in exchange, you’ll agree to vote for us.”
D’Souza went on to talk about money and wealth, and the differing approaches between Democrats and Republicans when it comes to that:
“Lincoln argued people have the right to keep the fruit of their labor, and more than 150 years later, the Republican Party stands for keeping the fruits of your labor, and the Democratic Party “stands for wealth confiscation,” he explained.
D’Souza conveys some very compelling points that make a great deal of sense. And no political party should be a gangster or bully. Certainly that shouldn’t happen in the United States and in 2018. Democrats need to work instead to heal the rifts and mend fences, rather than creating even more problems than those that already exist.
