Dinesh D’Souza: No Tears for HAMAS CAIR Hero, Hitler Fan; Said US Deserved 9/11; Bush Indicted Dem for Same Crime
Dinesh D’Souza committed a federal crime, the same crime that far-left liberal Democrat trial lawyer Geoffrey Fieger committed, and for which he was indicted by a Bush Administration federal grand jury in 2007. Obama’s indictment of D’Souza is not a political witchhunt. But it is politics based on a crime that D’Souza knowingly, deliberately committed and thought he’d get away with. Well, he didn’t.
I’ve got nothing but contempt for all of those “conservatives” who are publicly shedding crocodile tears over D’Souza, the “conservative” commentator who blamed American decadence for 9/11, saying we deserved it because we upset Muslim sensibilities about modesty and so on. As I’ve noted in the past, he wrote a whole book on this perverted thesis. In case you don’t believe me, read his particularly disgusting column, “Who Speaks for Islam?” in which he praises Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood adviser Dalia Mogahed and Islamotool John Esposito. D’Souza, a darling of the HAMAS CAIR and other Muslim lecture circuits, believes in immigration amnesty and the superiority of Muslims and their religion over yours and mine. He also thinks America should side with Al-Qaeda in Syria and go to war there. He said so in his “Obama 2016” plagiarism hack job “documentary” (read my review). No tears for him from me. Oh, and where are all his Muslim buddies, especially those from HAMAS CAIR–at whose events he appeared and spoke gushingly–now that he’s been indicted? They ain’t defending him. That’s for sure. And neither am I. I usually don’t defend Islamopologists, and I certainly don’t side with Hitler fans. D’Souza endearingly quoted Der Fuhrer in an anti-Semitic quote for the Yom Kippur edition of the Dartmouth Review, when he was editor-in-chief.
I have to laugh when I read the comments of D’Souza’s moviemaking partner, Gerald Molen, saying, “I have never feared my government until now.” Um, are you saying that D’Souza didn’t circumvent federal election and campaign finance laws? His own friend, Wendy Long, says he lied to her about the source of the contributions. Maybe she’s lying, too. But one thing is clear: D’Souza is the source of the funds and he knew what he was doing. Mark Levin, who claims to be a lawyer, says he read the D’Souza indictment and doesn’t see that a crime has been committed. Huh? Did federal campaign finance laws change, and he’s the only person in the world who knows about it?
It’s funny that Molen, who produced “Schindler’s List,” doesn’t get that his buddy D’Souza had an affinity for Hitler and has a current love affair with the modern-day Nazis in Islam who are far worse than the Nazis ever were. (I think he does get it, but D’Souza is making him a lot of money with entree to conservatives, and the Benjamins rule this hypocrite Molen.) Did Gerald Molen fear his government when the Bush Administration prosecuted trial lawyer Geoffrey Fieger for the same thing? Did Mark Levin cry, “Partisan witch hunt!” Fieger was indicted on four counts by the Bush Justice Department (read the federal indictment), so perhaps the Obamaniks are being soft on D’Souza, as they’ve indicted him on only one count (read the federal indictment). In 2007, the Bushies went after Geoffrey Fieger because he funneled about 20,000 to the Presidential campaign of John Edwards. He gave the money to third parties to give to Edwards, so that he could funnel more money to Edwards’ campaign than he was personally allowed to give under federal campaign donation limits.
Back in 2007, the Detroit U.S. Attorney’s office, headed by then-U.S. Attorney Stephen Murphy III a/k/a “Abu Porno”–who is now a Bush-appointed federal judge–was in bed with the terrorist-enabling, terrorist-financing Detroit Muslim community, so they refused to go after them. Murphy refused to push the indictment of his crony Imad Hamad, a Palestinian terrorist who apparently committed immigration fraud and was to be stripped of his U.S. citizenship (and who was recently fired from his perch at ADC because he sexually harassed several women). So, Murphy–desperate for headlines and positive PR because he wanted to become a federal judge–went after Fieger.
Of course, it was political. And, of course, the indictment of D’Souza is political, too. But, in both cases, they broke the law and created the basis for the indictment in the first place. Both Fieger and D’Souza thought they were more important than federal election contribution limits, so they knowingly, deliberately orchestrated a way around them. They thought they wouldn’t get caught. But they were.
In Fieger’s case, he managed to charm the jury and was acquitted. But D’Souza, as charming as he believes he is, isn’t actually quite so charming. There are his mancrushes on Hitler and extremist Muslims, especially his cronies at un-indicted co-conspirator in HAMAS terrorism, CAIR. And then there is the fact that he was fired from the Presidency of King’s College, a Christian college, after he, a 52-year-old, checked into a hotel suite with a 20-something chick he identified as his “fiancee” even though he was already married. He feigned puzzlement that there was anything wrong with that. This guy–who dated and was also “engaged” (euphemism) to Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham–really gets around.
And now his getting around has gotten around to him.
No tears for Dinesh D’Souza from me. The only sad thing here is that the publicity and phony, partisan outcry from the right over this lout and his deserved indictment, will only serve as good publicity to make him more millions on his next hack job–probably as plagiarized and old news as “his” “Obama 2016.”
While his next movie is in a theater near you, I won’t be saddened one bit if D’Souza ends up in a correctional facility near you, too.
For the record, I don’t think there should be federal campaign finance limits because they inspire crimes like D’Souza’s and Fieger’s, and then we don’t know who is funding whom. I believe that, with full disclosure on donors–especially in the instantaneous age of the internet–anyone should be able to donate however much they want to whomever they want. Instead, what happens is that anonymous donors and union machines donate to third party PACs and other organizations to fund campaign ads and we never know who is behind it.
So, I think the laws that were used against Geoffrey Fieger and are being used against Dinesh D’Souza are silly and ill advised (and I would rather see the government go after terrorists and other dangerous criminals than campaign finance law violators). But, right now, they are the laws.
And Dinesh D’Souza broke them no differently than Geoffrey Fieger did. He deserved to be indicted, and he deserves to be convicted. Because he is guilty.
