The conservative flamethrower’s recent article in Forbes magazine served as the inspiration for Newt Gingrich’s notorious comment about President Obama’s “Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior” being the essence of his character.Gingrich thinks D’Souza’s piece to be a “stunning insight,” the “most profound insight I have read in the last six years about Barack Obama.
-- and auteur in the genre of wingnut paranoia hate-porn, Dinesh D'Souza, may still have a little further to fall before going splat back at the base of the Great Wingnut Welfare Food Pyramid.
But if so, it is a distance that can now be measured in inches.
Dinesh D'Souza indicted for violating U.S. election lawBY JONATHAN STEMPELNEW YORK Thu Jan 23, 2014 6:03pm ESTJan 23 (Reuters) - Dinesh D'Souza, a conservative commentator and best-selling author, has been indicted by a federal grand jury for arranging excessive campaign contributions to a candidate for the U.S. Senate.According to an indictment made public on Thursday in federal court in Manhattan, D'Souza around August 2012 reimbursed people who he had directed to contribute $20,000 to the candidate's campaign. The candidate was not named in the indictment.Attempts to reach D'Souza and a lawyer representing him were unsuccessful.D'Souza was charged in the indictment with one count of making illegal contributions in the names of others, and one count of causing false statements to be made....
Obviously Mr. D'Souza made the classic mistake of not being partisan enough. Which, we all know, is the only reason the Liberal jackals of the American judicial system ever go after Conservative heroes like Mr. D'Souza.
Also I'm sure his future contribution to America letters --"Notes from the Liberal Gulag: My Life as a Conservative Prisoner of Conscience" -- recounting his harrowing four months trying to survive low sheet thread-counts and a very limited wine list at the Taft minimum-security Correctional Institution will go on to be Regnery Press' biggest seller of 2017.
UPDATE: And just like fucking clockwork...
From Fox News:
...D’Souza’s co-producer in “2016” Gerald Molen told FoxNews.com he believes the charges are politically motivated and D’Souza is being singled out by federal authorities for a “selective prosecution.”The 2012 film examined President Obama’s past and early influences that may have shaped his political ideology and was a surprise hit, making over $33 million at the box office.The duo is teaming up again for a new film “America,” which Molen said will be released on schedule in July 2014 regardless of what happens in the case.“Neither the filmmakers nor the American public can allow this prosecution to deter us from the film's release, and I am calling upon the American people to show their elected officials that this kind of selective prosecution will not stand, by joining us at the box office,” Molen said. “I look forward to my good friend Dinesh being vindicated for what appears to be nothing more than a misunderstanding."
