The political arena is tough and hardened — cross a line or the wrong people and payback is a proverbial you know what. Or worse.
Dinesh D’Souza paid a steep price for his mistake: D’Souza asked two people to contribute a total of $20,000 to the New York Senate campaign of Wendy Long, and later reimbursed them. He pled guilty and was sentenced to five years probation, eight months in a halfway house, a $30K fine, eight hours of community service each week, and therapy on a weekly basis.
It’s clear D’Souza was guilty. But it’s equally clear that others have committed exponentially worse campaign transgressions with only a slap on the wrist. Those others, however, had not produced a visual indictment of Obama: D’Souza’s 2012 Movie “2016: Obama’s America” grossed $33 million and revealed the radical, anti-American worldview of Barack Obama. Political reprisals swiftly warned the author/filmmaker: don’t you dare mess with Obama and the Progressive elites.
Rather than obeisance at the Progressive altar, Dinesh D’Souza served out his sentence, paid his fine, and doubled down with a new, hard-hitting film, Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party.
