Must-See Video: Stanford University’s Smartest Leftists Show Up To Battle Dinesh D’Souza (video, left), Dinesh D’Souza

CS Commentary: Full video, about an hour and a half, but this is must watching for grandparents, parents, and teenagers and up. Fully worth 90 minutes of your time. You will learn some ‘crushing facts’: why Dinesh and Jesse Jackson disagree (the importance of an informed perspective), the nature of capitalism and why the Marxist argument fails, and why arguments that America is racist and the right – including President Trump – is fascist, completely fail. Who passed all of the segregation laws in the U.S. in the early 20th Century? You should know. Who was the first Fascist? You should know. How did the whole basis for Nazi discrimination against Jews come from America? You should know. What are the Nuremberg Laws and why are they important? You should know. 1930’s Nazi Germany is taking place in the U.S. right now. Just as we have ‘fake news’, we have ‘fake history’ and ‘fake scholarship’. Must viewing for every American who wants to be informed about current issues.
