In this video, Dinesh D’Souza rises to the occasion to explain that five features of slave plantation can be found in two dozen inner cities controlled by the Democratic Party; many of which since the 1960s. The five features of a slave plantation are outlined by Kenneth M. Stampp in The Peculiar Institution: Slavery in the Ante-Bellum South.
- Broken down and dilapidated and unsafe housing.
- Broken families.
- A high degree of violence required in order to hold the place together.
- Everybody gets a basic provision, but nobody gets ahead.
- Nihilism and despair. This is an intergenerational, ongoing, lasting way of life.
Dinesh D’Souza explains this is a big opportunity for President Trump “to talk straight to people in our inner cities” and show “that there is a way to get up and get off the plantation, this would be a mammoth opportunity for the Republican Party.”
I don’t know why this just an opportunity for the Republican Party because of what President Trump does. Is it not an opportunity for Republicans, themselves, to also talk straight about these issues?
