Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party
Dinesh D’Souza
Regnery Publishing, 2016
Reviewed by Tadashi Hama
Recently, the Democrats and their “progressive” allies have been particularly strident in condemning the maltreatment of the American Indians and Black slavery, chastising “White Americans” for the former and “the South” for the latter. Upon closer examination, however, D’Souza states that responsibility for these ills rests squarely on the shoulders of the Democratic Party. D’Souza dismisses the popular notion that the Democratic Party is the party of the “common man,” of “racial equality, social justice, and equal opportunity,” and asserts that the Democratic Party, from its founding, is the party of “exploitation, murder, and plunder” and “white supremacy”.

D’Souza goes on to show that the Democratic Party was the “party of slavery,” a party that did everything it could to protect Black slavery in states where it was allowed and to spread it into new American states. The support base of the Democratic Party comprised of slave owners and those who saw slavery as a “natural and normal condition of society.” D’Souza points out that northern Democrats also supported slavery, dispelling the mistaken notion that only “southerners” supported slavery. Pro-slavery supporters said that slaves were fed, housed and otherwise taken care of–thus, slavery was “a blessing to the slave and a blessing to the master.” (In 1858, Republican US Senate candidate Abraham Lincoln derided slavery, a system wherein “you work and I eat, you toil and I will enjoy the fruits of it.”)
