Filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza told Pete Hegseth on Fox & Friends that calls for an end to anti-Trump rioting and violence will go largely unanswered from the peaceful faction of the political left.

"The rhetoric that has inspired this violence has come from the mainstream of the Democrat Party," D'Souza said.

He said that a common belief among many on the Left is that President Trump is a "modern-day [Benito] Mussolini", and recalled how actress Ashley Judd compared the president to Adolf Hitler.

"The party is largely brain-dead," he said, adding that the rioting in Washington over the weekend embodied a "juvenile embitterment of losing an election they think they could have won."

D'Souza said that former President Obama kept the "backroom" faction of the Democratic Party, led by Hillary Clinton, and the more active faction lead by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) together, but that Clinton's loss will allow the "Bernie Faction" to "gain prominence".
