Such outrageous statements from a right-wing extremist wouldn’t much matter, except that D’Souza’s work has received wide and vociferous acclaim and a state senator in Florida has introduced legislation that would make teachers show this pseudo-documentary to every 8th and 11th grader in the state.

The report, released Tuesday by the Working Group on Natural Resource Development, says a First Nations resource tax could be a consistent and practical way for mineral and energy wealth to benefit aboriginal communities.
