STEVE DOOCY (HOST): Explain to me the connection between President Andrew Jackson and the Nazis.
DINESH D'SOUZA: Well, the book uncovers a sort of secret history between fascism and the Democratic Party and the left. This is important because, as you know, fascism is now the card that is played by the left against [President Donald] Trump. Trump is a fascist, Republicans are the party of fascism. I show that the opposite is true. Fascism has always been on the left. I also point out three ideas that Hitler got, very destructive, genocidal ideas from the Democratic Party. So, one of them you mentioned, Hitler is sitting in Landsberg Prison and he's frustrated because the British and the French have conquered large parts of Asia and Africa, and Hitler goes, "There's nothing left for us." And then he says, "Wait a minute, in America, the Jacksonian Democrats drove the American Indians off their land, dispossessed them, enslaved them." He goes, "That's what I'm going to do. I’m going to throw the Poles, the Slavs, the eastern Europeans, the Russians off their land. We'll resettle it with German families. If any of those guys remain we'll enslave them." So, Hitler got his blueprint for European, you may say conquest, in Europe directly from the Jacksonian Democrats.
