MY CORNER by Boyd Cathey
Newly Expanded Review of Dinesh D’Souza’s Movie, “Death of a Nation” (at The Unz Review)
Back on Sunday, August 5, I wrote a MY CORNER pre-review of Dinesh D’Souza’s new film, “Death of a Nation,” of which I had only seen a few clips and read the promo; since then I have managed to get through almost the entire film without having a severe case of the vapors…but just barely. My pre-review showed up on The Abbeville Institute site, titled “The Death of Historical Accuracy” [https://www.abbevilleinstitute.org/blog/the-death-of-historical-accuracy/] and has received a lot of comment, mostly positive.
But now, after having seen most of the film, I can state that my originally expressed views have not changed. Indeed, they have only been confirmed. And thinking that there needed to be more conversation, more discussion, about this latest cinematic effort by D’Souza—and more exposure of what can only be termed fraudulent history and blatant historical legerdemain on his part—I rewrote that column, expanded it, and it is published today [August 17, 2018] by The Unz Review (which gets well over a million reads each month).
Additionally, Dr. David Gordon has passed on a link to an excellent review he wrote for The Mises Review back in 1995 [I, no. 5, Winter 1995, at: https://mises.org/library/end-racism-principles-multiracial-society-dinesh-dsouza] of D’Souza’s magnum opus, The End of Racism: Principles for a Multiracial Society, which is so full of historical inaccuracies and scientific misstatements as to be rendered useless as history and noxious as science. I encourage you to read Dr. Gordon’s detailed review.
Here is the expanded Unz Review version of my review:
