For many years, Republicans have been calling out Democrats for their failed leadership in America’s inner cities. Major cities that have been run by Democrats for decades are crime-infested, poverty-stricken, and harm millions of Americans.
Speaking at Trinity University in March, conservative pundit Dinesh D’Souza had some strong words about how Democrats are the real racists in America because of how they have let the inner cities crumble under their watch.
“Let me just say this. If one goes today to the Democratic controlled inner city,” he stated. “We will see in them now, all the five features of the slave plantation.”
D’Souza, citing a book by Kenneth Stampp, then listed five similarities between America’s slave plantations from over 100 years ago and America’s inner cities today.
“Number one, broken down, dilapidated and unsafe housing. Number two, broken families,” D’Souza explained. “Number three, a high degree of violence required to hold the place together.”
“Number four, everybody gets a basic provision … but nobody gets ahead. The Southerners and the Democrats used to call slavery a ‘school of civilization,’” he explained.
