In an interview with Rich Zeoli on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT, D’Souza pointed out that “Unite the Right” leader Jason Kessler organized a “hate rally.”

“The white supremacist leader of this group is an Obama guy and an Occupy Wall Street guy, so right away you know that this could be a sort of staged Nazism that we’re seeing for the benefit of serving a narrative.”

Zeoli questioned D’Souza’s sourcing of the accusation.
