Florida Democrat cites safety concerns in effort to censor anti-Hillary film

As the Democratic National Convention kicked off Monday amid new scandals related to the release of thousands of leaked emails, the timing was perfect for conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza. His latest documentary, “Hillary’s America,” was recently released and has attracted significant interest from voters hoping to learn more about the former first lady’s sordid past.

If one Democratic state committeeman has his way, though, it might be impossible for some locals to catch this film at their neighborhood cinema. Joseph Flynn has sent a request to a number of theaters operating in Sumter County, Fla., to remove D’Souza’s film from the lineup. He cited an ostensible concern for the safety of area Democrats as his motive.

“I have received a significant number of calls from people in Sumter County who viewed the trailer of this movie and voiced concern the movie will incite additional threats of violence against them and their property for being Democrats.”

Though other activists have faced stern criticism for altering the rallying cry of Black Lives Matter organizers, reports indicate Flynn included his assertion that “Democrat lives matters [sic].”

The party official went on to declare that the D’Souza doc “has little to do with Hillary Clinton and is a hateful attack upon anyone who calls themselves a Democrat.”

As for the cinemas on the receiving end, though, it does not appear Flynn’s protests have had much impact.

One theater manager noted the first showing of “Hillary’s America” attracted as many patrons as the entire eight-screen theater sees during a normal showing at that time of the day. Furthermore, he declared that he does not “see why it would incite violence.”

  4. Maybe these (fictional) concerned Democrats should watch this movie to fully understand exactly what they have been blindly supporting for generations.

  5. The tactics of using mis-information to shield your cause are employed by other groups also. For example, trangenders play the “hate” card when people object to having persons of the opposite sex in the bathroom with them. Illegal immigrants play the “bigot” card when confronted by people who just want them to play by the rules. And now the Democrats are playing the “fear” card to suppress a video they don’t like.
