The Unjust Conviction of Conservative Dinesh D’Souza

Dinesh D’Souza is an American author and filmmaker.

He is also a convicted felon.

D’Souza, in his movie 2016, dissects Barack Obama’s worldview.  He researched and figured out how Obama came to hate America so much and to wish her harm.

In short, Obama’s father was an anti-colonialist.  Obama Sr. hated England and imperialism.  He thought that all wealth that England received from colonizing Africa was stolen and should be returned.

Likewise, Obama’s mother felt that way about America.  She taught her son that America is bad and that all of our wealth was achieved by theft, not hard work and sacrifice.

This logic explains the whole “you didn’t build that” saying from Obama.  It also explains why he wants America to stop all drilling and all use of any kind of energy.  It explains why he wants all Americans to be punished with higher taxes and wants to destroy capitalism with government regulation.

dineshD’Souza often describes America as the world’s most benevolent super power.  We use our power for good and not evil.  We liberate countries from tyrannical dictators.  We don’t colonize them.  Otherwise, Germany would be “America-Western Europe” and Japan would be “America-Far East.”

Also, America is the only country that corrects its own mistakes.  Yes, we make mistakes.  But we make more strides to correct them than necessary.

D’Souza, born in India, clearly sees the benevolence of America.  Barack Obama doesn’t see it.  Oddly, it is that very same benevolence that elected him president of the United States, twice.

Obama probably doesn’t like D’Souza.

So, D’Souza was charged, convicted and sentenced to probation for a campaign financing donation.

D’Souza shouldn’t have made an improper campaign contribution.  As a conservative, I support the man, not the crime.  For some reason that I don’t understand, liberals support the person AND, inexplicably, the crime.

I understand that campaign contributions like this one typically get a slap on the wrist.  They are charged as a civil crime and the person at fault pays penalties.  D’Souza’s was charged as a criminal case and he faced 10 to 16 months in jail.

Why?  Could it be because D’Souza is working on another conservative film before the next election?

As part of his sentence, D’Souza has to perform community service.  He has been assigned to teach English to immigrants.

When asked how he felt about that, he said, “Believe me, they are all going to be Republicans by the end of it.”

Good job, Dinesh.
