The D’Souza Arrest: Obama Adopts the Stalinist Style

Dinesh-DSouza-on-the-stu-taylor-showI’m no fan of Dinesh D’Souza, but this is ridiculous.

Dinesh and I locked horns a few years back when he attacked me in his book The Enemy At Home, saying that books like mine should not be written. His line was that Islam was a religion of peace, that pious, morally upright Muslims had been driven to lash out against the U.S. because of the immorality of our pop culture, and that American conservatives should ally with what he termed “conservative Muslims” against their common, amoral Leftist foe.

He and I debated this at CPAC in 2007 and on several radio shows, which grew increasingly heated as he charged me with “Islamophobia” (a term used by Muslim Brotherhood entities to stigmatize opposition to jihad terror) and invoked Saudi-funded Islamic apologist John Esposito as an authority.

The ensuing years have only shown more vividly what nonsense Dinesh’s position was, as “conservative Muslims” the world over wage jihad against America, and non-Muslims everywhere, more furiously than ever.

I rehash all this to show the falsehood of the line that has been circulating around in the Leftist media ever since Dinesh D’Souza was indicted: that only people who share D’Souza’s views are concerned about his indictment. As Tal Kopan put it in Politico, “In the wake of the indictment of conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza for alleged fraud, conservatives are crying foul that it is evidence of the Obama administration punishing its critics.”

Liberals should be as concerned about this as conservatives. Foes of jihad should be just as concerned about it as those who share D’Souza’s worries about “Islamophobia.” For the evidence is mounting that D’Souza has indeed been targeted for being a public and high-profile foe of Barack Obama – a development that should disquiet anyone who believes in the value of a stable, functioning republic with a loyal opposition. Pamela Geller notes here that D’Souza is not remotely the only conservative or Obama critic who has been targeted for prosecution, while Obama’s Justice Department has turned a blind eye to illegal campaign contributions from Gaza during Obama’s 2008 campaign. And then there was the Obama Justice Department’s dismissal of the New Black Panthers voter intimidation case.

What’s more, bail for D’Souza was set higher than that given to several people accused of attempted murder, rape, assault, and the like. To whom is Dinesh D’Souza more dangerous than a man who sexually assaulted a teenager, or a man who kept old men captive in a filthy “dungeon”?

This is something new in American politics. When I was six years old, I took notice of the presidential campaign, and asked my father who was the “good guy”: Richard Nixon or Hubert Humphrey. My father answered, “They’re both good men. They both want to do what is right for the country. They just disagree on what some of the right things to do may be.”

That kind of respect for the opposition was commonplace in America back in 1968, but it has all but vanished now. I remember being taken aback in college by the obscene, relentless, vicious hatred that the Left directed toward Ronald Reagan – I was at that time entirely sympathetic with their disdain for him, but the frenzy with which they expressed it, their wild furious contempt, shocked me. And that was nothing compared to what they had in store for George W. Bush. The Democratic Party as a whole, along with the entire Leftist establishment, adopted the Alinskyite tactic of ridiculing, mocking and smearing their foes instead of engaging them on the level of ideas. Leftists now routinely portray their opponents as simultaneously stupid and evil, idiotic but crafty; it’s practically a reflex.

Decades of this have poisoned the well of American politics, and paved the way for Obama to take the demonization to the next level by unleashing the law on them. Arresting prominent members of the opposition is the kind of behavior we have seen from the likes of Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler; it is a hallmark of authoritarianism, not (until now) of politics in the United States. Of course, Stalin and Hitler didn’t stop with arresting their foes; they had them murdered as well, usually after a show trial. Obama is not doing that, but is even one step down this road one that Americans want to take?

Leftist pundits who are waving away concern over the arrest of D’Souza should bear in mind that the worm could turn. They could, for some reason or another, find themselves somewhere down the line opposing the Obama regime or some other presidency that apes Obama’s strategy. Then those who are claiming that only believers in crazy “conspiracy theories” are concerned about the Obama Justice Department’s (to say nothing of the Obama IRS) clear pattern of singling out opponents of the President for prosecution while ignoring more serious crimes among his friends may find themselves on the receiving end of this tactic.

Civility and mutual respect are in dire need of restoration in the American public square, but two have to play at that game, and only one side is even interested in the game at all. With the arrest of Dinesh D’Souza, Barack Obama has adopted a key feature of the Stalinist style of politics. Before he or anyone else gets the idea of adopting anything else from the authoritarians’ playbook, Americans – Left and Right – would be well-advised to stand together to repudiate him and these tactics once and for all, and resoundingly.

But by relentlessly demonizing their opponents, Barack Obama and his cohorts have almost certainly already made that impossible.

            It’s RNC Hack Disease, and I’m the cure.

    • johnlac

      It’s selective law enforcement. Obama admitted he will not enforce laws he doesn’t like. His henchman Holder will do exactly what his master tells him to do. Which is why the idiot white guy in Texas who assaulted a black man (knockout game) was charged with a hate crime, and the hundreds of black youths who’ve done it recently are just high-spirited teens engaging in some hi-jinks. Obama is a law unto himself. Which is the definition of a dictator.

      • uptownsteve

        Hundreds of black youths? Let’s see proof. Also show me any of the black youths who were identified as knockouters who weren’t arrested and prosecuted. You righties are such pathetic liars.

        • Race_Dissident

          Not hundreds–thousands. And the issue is not whether they were arrested or not, it is with whether the feds went after them. And in the hundreds of instances of black knockout activities, the feds ignored them. Not surprising, since the worthies in the so-called “civil rights” division have openly proclaimed that whites do not enjoy civil rights.

          • uptownsteve

            Once again, let’s see evidence of even hundreds. I’ll wait patiently. You racist liar.

          • logdon

            ‘You righties are such pathetic liars.’

            ‘You racist liar’.

            And here we go, thus proving Robert’s case.

            Is ad hominem all you can come up with?

            And instead of asking others to prove their points why not prove yours? Or as a lefty are you above all of that?

          • uptownsteve

            Where is the evidence of his claim? Do you have it? All you have is diversion, no facts.

          • logdon

            You first, sunshine.

            Prove your facts or is evidence a mere inconvenience?

          • uptownsteve

            I didn’t make the assertion that there were thousands of black knockout gamers. Stop with the weak diversions and admit that your boy pulled his claim out of his rear end where most righties get their facts.

          • Race_Dissident

            Ha ha. The evidence is so abundant–even on this website–that I’m not even going to make the effort. Next you’ll ask for evidence that the sun comes up in the east. And you have the temerity to call other people dummies. Heh heh.

          • uptownsteve

            If it was so abundant, you would have produced it. Another lying racist slain.

          • Drakken

            Oh look! The kaffir threw the race card again, how quaint and special.

          • NAHALKIDES

            Remember, your fellow-travelers in the media do all they can to avoid reporting these unpleasant facts. Thus, when black-on-white crime occurs (and we’re not claiming that it’s as common as black-on-black) the media studiously avoid mentioning this fact, even when the crime was racially motivated.

          • Steve Fair

            So if the media avoids mentioning it, how do you know about it? And when black on white crime occurs, the perps are jailed and prosecuted, Often when white on black crime occurs, the perp walks. George Zimmerman anyone?

          • Drakken

            Ole Trav Von be gone got what he deserved, just wait until a white guy snuffs a bunch of black feral youts that tried the knock out game or to rob him, then watch as the riots ensue.

          • Steve Fair

            When whites kill blacks they walk free. And where were the riots after Zimmerman walked?

          • Omar

            Zimmerman is Hispanic. Actually, he is half-Hispanic. Isn’t it interesting how you leftists regard Obama, who is mixed-race (half-black and half-white), as “black, yet you leftists categorize Zimmerman as “white” or “white Hispanic”. You clearly have a double standard.

          • Drakken

            Whites all over the US were targeted as an excuse, you just refuse to pay attention.

          • kikorikid

            Does the Victim live?

          • Omar

            Oh really? What about the OJ Simpson case, when the defendant, who was black, was acquitted of murdering his wife and her friend, who were both white? What about the James Byrd, Jr. case, when the victim, who was black, was brutally killed in a dragging death by three white racists? All three defendants were jailed, tried, convicted and imprisoned. Two of the defendants were sentenced to death. One of them was already executed more than two years ago. So, you see, the justice system is not as bad as you think.

          • NAHALKIDES

            By “media” I meant mainstream media, of course. The alternative media have been better (not hard to do) in covering the story – in fact, you could find it right here on FPM if you take the trouble to look.

            But you’re obviously living in your own world, immune like most Lefties to uncomfortable facts, hence your Zimmerman comment. Zimmerman defended himself against an attacker and was force to shoot him, then was acquitted – and he should never even have been brought to trial.

            Are you unaware of the concept of civility or are you in your dimness proving the author’s point?

            YES! They certainly have!

        • Omar

          You leftists are the pathetic liars. You falsely accuse some of the greatest former presidents as racists and bigots despite evidence to the contrary, while supporting certain hate groups if they claim to be “representing” people of a darker skin color.

          • Steve Fair

            Reagan supported segregation and Apartheid. And who are these hate groups we supposedly support?

          • Omar

            No he didn’t. That is a lie. First of all, Reagan was not a racist nor a bigot. If you actually studies his biography, you would learn that Reagan actually had quite a few black friends during his college years. In fact, he invited some of his friends to stay with him when they were prohibited from staying at a segregated hotel. During Reagan’s term as governor of California, he appointed more blacks to key positions of his team than the previous governors. During his two terms as U.S. president, Reagan’s Justice Department tackled more hate crime cases than the administration of your beloved Jimmy Carter. And it was during Reagan’s presidency that the holiday honoring Martin Luther King, Jr. was created. Guessed who signed that legislation to law? Regarding South Africa, Reagan did not support the apartheid regime. He was against sanctions due to the Cold War. Reagan didn’t want to sanctions the apartheid regime in South Africa because the regime’s foreign policy was anti-Communist. What Reagan did instead was pursue a policy called constructive engagement, in which the Reagan administration would support South Africa’s foreign policy, but at the same time, demand that the regime desegregation all facilities in the country, get into negotiations with the opposition, provide citizenship and full civil and voting rights to all people of color in South Africa, and make the transition to a multi-racial, inclusive democracy. In fact, constructive engagement was both anti-Communist and anti-apartheid. Now, one may question whether it was a wise policy or not (most Americans, as well as most people around the world supported sanctions against South Africa), but nonetheless, nobody in the world supported South Africa’s domestic policy during the Cold War. So, no, Reagan did embrace segregation nor apartheid (in addition to Cold War politics, Reagan thought that sanctions would actually end up harming South Africa’s black population. Now, I acknowledged that that is debatable, as sanctions did bring the apartheid regime to its knees). Contrast Reagan with Jimmy Carter, who for decades, has unconditionally embraced every despotic figure from racists and bigots to Communists and Islamists. Carter’s worst case scenario of embracing a horrible regime in a foreign country is the case involving the Castro family dictatorship in Communist Cuba, the only totalitarian dictatorship in the Western Hemisphere. During Carter’s last visit to Cuba in 2011, he completely embraced the Castro dictatorship and called on the United States to release the so-called “Cuban Give”, which are five convicted Cuban spies (of which four remain in federal prison. One of the spies was released from prison last year and he returned to Cuba) who are serving time in federal prison for spying on U.S. military facilities in southern Florida, as well as on attacking Cuban Americans by sending letter bombs to their respective residencies (one of the “Cuban Five” spies was also instrumental in helping the Cuban Air Force shoot down two unarmed, humanitarian planes belonging to the organization Brothers to the Rescue (an organization dedicated to rescuing people, particularly Cuban refugees escaping Communist Cuba) over international waters in 1996. In addition to calling for the release of the terrorist spies at the service of the Castro dictatorship, your beloved Carter also called for the United States to unilaterally lift the so-called “embargo” (Contrary to Castro dictatorship propaganda, there is no U.S. Embargo on Communist Cuba. There are only limited sanctions. The United States does, in fact, trade with Cuba. For example, the U.S. is one of Communist Cuba’s top food suppliers) on the Communist dictatorship. So, there is no doubt that Carter supports Communist totalitarianism, as well as Islamist aggression, like in the Middle East conflict between Israel and its neighbors (in that conflict, Carter believes that Israel should give in to the demands of all of the Islamists in the Middle East). In addition, Carter had also got cozy with racists and bigots. For example, while Carter was governor of Georgia during the 1970s, his lieutenant governor was a racial segregationist named Lester Maddox, who Carter referred to as “the essence of the Democratic Party”. Now, why don’t you criticize Carter for getting cozy with racists and bigots earlier in his political career? It is because you and other leftists support Carter, that’s why. Quit trolling, you annoying ignoramus.

          • Steve Fair

            Reagan opposed the Civil Rights Act saying that it was “unfair to the South”. Reagan vetoed Congress sanctions against the Apartheid regime in South Africa. Reagan didn’t even recognize his lone black cabinet member, HUD Secretary Samuel Pierce….calling him “Mr. Mayor” when encountering Pierce in a receiving line. Reagan’s initial reaction to the MLK Jr. Holiday (before his handlers got to him) was “The next thing you know, every group is going to want a holiday for their heroes.” Reagan stacked the EEOC with rightwing ideologues who didn’t even believe in the agency’s right to exist. He was a slug.

          • Drakken

            Your hero and Messiah Comrade Obummer seems to be doing a wonderful job of turning the US into a 3rd world sh**hole. Give me Reagan anyday of the week and twice on Sunday over what we have in the white house today.

          • Omar

            More lies coming from a typical left-wing scumbag like you. I reiterate what I posted above, you loon. Why don’t you talk about how Jimmy Carter got cozy with his lieutenant governor, Lester Maddox, who Carter referred to as the “essence of the Democratic Party” during Carter’s term as governor of Georgia during the 1970s. Why don’t you denounce Carter for unconditionally supporting left-wing dictatorships like the one in Communist Cuba, currently the only totalitarian dictatorship in the Western Hemisphere. Also, you loon, Carter and his cronies had destroyed the classical liberalism that existed in the Democratic Party at the national level, including deriding the Kennedy brothers as “paranoid”. You are clearly a Carter fanatic paid by the failed former president’s agency, the Carter Center. Quit trolling.

          • Steve Fair
          • Omar

            Would Jimmy Carter had been okay with you when he was governor of Georgia over four decades ago? No, he wouldn’t. Carter not only praised his racist lieutenant governor, Lester Maddox, as “the essence of the Democratic Party”, but while campaigning for governor of Georgia in 1970, at a KKK rally, Carter displayed photos of his political opponents posing with black basketball players at. In addition, you ignore Carter’s long history of cozying with dictators, like the Castro brothers in Communist Cuba, where the longest served black political prisoner in modern history, Eusebio Penalver, was held in that country’s prison system from 1960 to 1988. Yet, you have no problem praising the Castro family dictatorship, even though they are racist, sexist, homophobic and have supported terrorism around the world. And these are the people that Carter is friends with and in which he wants to United States to bow down to. Do you ever wonder why Cuban Americans hate Jimmy Carter so much? It is because Carter doesn’t care about the plight of the Cuban people at the hands of his friends. Carter has even insulted the so-called “Cuban American lobby”, rather than the brutality of the Castro family dictatorship, for the lack of normalized relations between the United States and Cuba. And this is the person that you are “all right” with? Wow. You have a twisted worldview.

    Obama has proven to be quite vindictive in the past, and we all know Holder has no respect for justice or the law. Obamacare was designed to deny care to people who will die as a result. In Benghazi an ambassador and thre other Americans were abandoned by Obama. He used the killing of Bin Laden to puff himself up, allowing classified information to get into the hands of filmmakers. It got some SEALS killed.

    Proof of Obama’s sociopathic nature can be seen in his complete ignorance of the Muslim Brotherhood’s persecution of Coptic Christians, while they were still in power. Even crucifixions of Christians didn’t move Obama to even bother threatening to withdraw military aid, much less actually withdraw the aid.

    Obama has no compunctions against Stalinist tactics, and neither do his heanchmen, or his puppetmasters. Prepare for more of this, and worse.

    Obama is a third-worlder and he is bringing third-world governance to the U.S. Use the government to enrich your friends and punish your enemies.

    • Ziggy Stardust

      Your statement may be emotionally satisfying for you, but it is harmful in the cause of opposing Leftists policies.
      Calling Obama a “third-worlder” is not civil. With today’s Democratic Patry, it does not matter if the President is Barack Obama, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton or thousands of other white progressives born in the USA with an American family tree dating back 200 years.

      • Deserttrek

        calling him a third worlder is polite

        • SM

          Nope, it is WRONG and impolite!

          1. President Barak Hussein Obama was born in the United States of America and is an American citizen. The last I checked the USA is a 1st world nation which implies that Obama = 1st worlder.

          2. Also using words like 3rd worlder is NOT polite and it is uncivil. A third worlder is almost akin to calling someone a savage. There are many high IQ Indians & Chinese, with mental abilities far greater than most “white” so called “1st worlder” Americans and Europeans, so what good is a term like that anymore?

          A lot of conservative whites were offended with the recent coke advertisement on Superbowl & have decided to boycott coke products to switch over to Pepsi.

          Ok boycott coke. Use Pepsi products instead.

          But Oops, I forgot, the person who runs Pepsi co. is a Hindu lady from India – Indra Nooyi. So I guess one must boycott all products from Pepsi as well, eh? Also since “Yum Foods” which is owned by Pepsi also owns the following franchises: KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Long John Silvers etc. Using any of these franchises only makes that undesirable Indian Hindu wealthier! I guess one must also boycott all these restaurants too, eh? Nice try conservatives :()

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indra_Nooyi

          Oh and I also forgot – since multi culturalism is so evil and is “turning America into a dump” I guess all whites should stop using the following:

          1. Google Inc – created by a Russian Jew Sergei Brin who is as leftist and pro-immigration as you can get. Google works on the “Hilltop algorithm” designed by a Hindu Tamil Indian Krishna Bharat an immigrant from south India who is also the principal scientist of google Inc and oversees all the designs, programming & algorithms for the website as well as created Google News.

          2. You tube – run by Salar Kamanagar – a Muslim Immigrant from Tehran, Iran. Youtube was also co-founded by Jawad Karim, a muslim immigrant from Bangaldesh along with two liberal left wing Jews.

          3. E-bay – owned & founded by a Turkish immigrant Piear Omidyar who obviously adds to the rainbow coalition!

          4. Almost any 21st century modern computer or lap top which works on the Intel Pentium chip created & designed by a Hindu immigrant from India – Dr. Vinod Dham – “father of the Pentium chip”.

          5. Coca Cola – run by a Turkish muslim Muhtar Kent.

          include all the following brands too:

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Coca-Cola_brands

          6. Apple Inc products – founded and created by Steve Jobs – the biological son of a muslim Syrian immigrant Abdul Fattah Jandali. Additionally, right wing white Christian conservatives should also loathe Steve Jobs because he was an India-phile who followed Hinduism and later converted into the Indian religion of Buddhism. So yep, no I-pods, Apple Macs, I-pads, I-tunes etc.

          7. Stop using any modern computer or gadget all of which runs through the California silicon valley based IT giant – Applabs inc., where all your products are tested before they go out into the market. Applabs is the world’s #1 software testing company and was founded by an immigrant from India – Dr. Sashi Reddy.

          8. Stop using Bose sound systems – the world’s #1 audio systems and speakers, founded and designed by Dr. Amar Gopal Bose, a Hindu Indian American.

          9. Stop using any technology which utilizes Fibre Optic cables created by Indian American Dr. Narender Singh Kripany – “father of fibre optics”. Thus, one must avoid using broad band internet technology too!

          http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/Father-of-fiber-optics-explains-how-it-began-3165453.php

          Dr. Narinder Singh Kapany, Father of Fiber Optics

          10. Don’t use the following corporations run by Indian Americans:

Oh and also avoid at all costs using any medical services which requires the use of Folic acid – discovered by an Indian Y.

We can always use our remote control to change channels and avoid liberal Jewish run media brainwashing. Only one problem: the wireless remote control which we used today was invented by Robert Adler – a Jewish immigrant who escaped the horrors of NAZI Germany and was like the great Jewish genius Albert Einstein, as far left and pro-immigration as you could possible get. Heck, Einstein and his ilk would probably make President Obama look like a far right conservative republican by comparison.

          Oh and one more thing idiots: the writer of this song i.e. “America the beautiful” was a liberal Lesbian woman – Katherine Lee Bates. Now eat that schmucks!

        The time for niceties and pleasantries with the left is over, the only thing the left understand and respect is playing by the same rules they play by, except now we have to carry a big stick and whack them with extreme prejudice. You go ahead and take the high moral ground, the left will bury you in it.

        Read “Obama’s America” by D’Souza.

  • tickletik

    Agreed with everything except the “civility and mutual respect need to be returned” part. We are walking down a well trod, well mapped path. The communist left wants violent revolution, they crave it for pathological reasons.

    Any compassion, any kindness, any civility will be seen as surrender. And to surrender to these animals is to invite a fate literally worse than a clean death. These are NOT people. Maybe their parents or siblings are people but these are “voluntary beasts”. Deluding yourself about that will only get yourself played.

    • wildjew

      Thankfully, I never fell into the trap of saying, “It can never happen here.” It can happen here. Over the years I have enjoyed posting conservative comments on left-leaning and far left sites for purposes of discussion – the ones that have not banned me. Some of these people are vicious. Even if it is against one’s nature, you’ve got to return vitriol for vitriol or they will “wipe the floor with you.” The German people helped elevate the racist National Socialist Workers Party to power at the ballot box in the early nineteen thirties. The American people (many) elevated this dangerous man to the White House.

  • The Facts

    Mr. Spencer tries hard in this article to establish a lack of moral equivalence between D’Souza and and the kidnapper Castro. What Mr. Spencer does not do is attempt to establish a moral equivalence between D’Souza and other men who have committed violations of electoral fundraising law. Any time a member of Frontpage plays the tune of moral equivalences, a big red flag should go up in one’s mind that the person being spoken for is a member of their team. The intellectual distinction between Mr. Spencer and Mr. D’Souza is superficial at best. Frontpage was plugging his movie. D’Souza has appeared in David Horowitz’s books of compiled essays. Someone like Amiri Baraka has not. This is why just last week Mr. Bawer was comparing him to everything evil under the sun. D’Souza is no saint. He did in fact commit illegalities.

      a) Any proof? b) Isn’t this selective prosecution?

      • frodo

        Proof’s for courts. The documents supporting the charge are in the indictment which you can easily find and read.

        • blaineiac

          The yolk of a totalitarian administration can “manufacture” and “forge” documents, witnesses can be “silenced”, legitimate records and files can be “lost” or “destroyed by fire” juries can be “selected” and “influenced”, judges can be “bought” or “threatened”, and Justice tossed in the trash basically to keep a corrupt ship of State afloat. Oba$tard and AG Holder have personal knowledge of such manipulation, and how to use it.

          • frodo

            That’s a bit overblown, don’t you think?

            Even D’Souza seems to acknowledge some kind of wrongdoing. This is from his own lawyer: “‘Mr. D’Souza did not act with any corrupt or criminal intent whatsoever,’ Brafman said in the statement. ‘He and the candidate have been friends since their college days, and at worst, this was an act of misguided friendship by D’Souza. . .It is important to note that the indictment
            does not allege a corrupt relationship between Mr. D’Souza and the candidate.'”

          • blaineiac

            Overblown? A parallel “overstatement” perhaps. My point is the danger of mindless over-application of a trivial “Political Law” (a law that absent a political framework is meaningless) as government retribution for its displeasure. I’m not all that enamored over D’Souza, but if he were a strong supporter of the current Progressive Democratic agenda, his peccadillo would be buried so deep that twenty historians couldn’t uncover it in twenty years. We live in dangerous times.

          • frodo

            I doubt that, and don’t think that the overstatement is parallel by any means.

    • John Eastborough

      Once again for the special ones in the back row. The problem is not that D’Souza violated the law, nobody is arguing that. The problem is that he’s being selectively targeted. Variable law enforcement leads to tyranny. Here’s some historical perspective for you: http://impliedinference.wordpress.com/2014/01/24/the-arrest-of-dinesh-dsouza-the-changing-nature-of-rule-of-law-in-america/

      • The Facts

        Conversely, why should D’Souza be singled out for special protection against punishment for his crimes? The answer is clearly: because he’s part of the Frontpage machine. The same loud wailing occurs when people like Jonathan Pollard or Mark Basseley get sent up the river. We hear the cry of “why were they singled out?” He singled himself out as a high profile criminal.

        • Gislef

          He shouldn’t be singled out for special protection. He should receive the same protection as anyone else who committed a similar crime, on either side of the political fence.

          Rapists and murderers should receive the same protection as other rapists and murderers.

          It’s when the Administration that D’Souza receives less protection than rapists and murderers that there is a problem.

          • The Facts

            No harm in putting criminals in jail though, even if they share political beliefs with one’s own political fringe group.

          • glpage

            There is no harm in charging and possibly jailing someone for illegal activity. There is some level of harm when it seems to be because of political vendetta. When someone who speaks out against you is indicted on more serious charges than someone who supports you there is probably an abuse of power.

        • Drakken

          Please explain to the rest of us knuckle dragging conservatives, how many campaign bundlers that helped Obummer were indicted and arrested?

      • frodo

        What evidence of selective targeting does anyone have?

        • Drakken

          D Souza is a simple campaign bundler, there were hundreds that worked for Obummer during both campaign runs, a little odd don’t you think that none of those democrat bundlers are not indicted nor arrested? Or am I going too fast for you to understand?

          • frodo

            He’s not a bundler–that’s a different practice (and the reimbursement of those donations, bundled or not, is illegal).

            Perhaps other people might want to slow down?

          • Drakken

            So please explain to the rest of us why weren’t democratic campaign workers charged as well?

          • frodo

            But people were–go look for yourself. This blog entry (cited elsewhere on this page) makes that point.

            http://blogs.reuters.com/alison-frankel/2014/01/24/dinesh-dsouza-faces-surprisingly-frequent-campaign-finance-charges/

            “simple party-line retaliation doesn’t drive campaign finance enforcement decisions. In fact, if you look at the Whittemore sentencing memo, you’ll see that supporters of both Democratic and Republican candidates have been prosecuted over the last several years. And it’s not as though the Bush administration went after only Democratic boosters and the Obama Justice Department targets only Republicans. Former FEC chairman
            David Mason, who served on the commission from 1998 to 2008 and is now senior vice-president of compliance services at the political consulting firm Aristotle, tracks campaign finance cases closely. He told me they’re just not generally motivated by politics.”

          • Drakken

            Well obviously politics had nothing to do with it, I mean why would D Souza be indicted and arrested for doing what hundreds of Obummer supporters have done and are still doing. What you regressives are doing is making the rank and file conservative question taking the high moral ground anymore, frankly speaking of course, the only way conservatives are going to get the attention of you leftys, is with a 2 by 4 across the face, always fight fire with napalm.

          • frodo

            Did you read the post? Such prosecutions are not motivated by politics.

            What high ground can D’Souza conceivably occupy?

          • Drakken

            He doesn’t, frankly I think the guy is an idiot, but the political motivations behind this cannot be ignored.

          • frodo

            Only if you think they’re there, and there’s not really any evidence that the *charges* are political. It’s getting attention because of who he is, but that’s not the same thing at all.

          • Drakken

            Trying to get you progressives to connect the dots and see things in a strategic world view is an impossible task, for you cannot see things as they are, but only in your narrow paradigm, of it is all the so called conservatives fault.

        • John Eastborough

            There’s nothing “selective” here and comparisons to Soviet law are at best specious.

          • John Eastborough

            From your link:

            “As the Whittemore memo chronicles, most campaign finance cases are resolved civilly, through Federal Election Commission enforcement actions – and there’s sometimes no explanation for why one case ends up before the FEC and another with similar facts is prosecuted criminally. “It’s a purely political decision,” Gentile told me.”

            > “It’s a purely political decision,”
            >purely political decision
            >purely political

            Um. MY. POINT. EXACTLY.

            Way to disprove your own assertion there, genius.

          • frodo

            From the same essay: “In fact, if you look at the Whittemore sentencing memo, you’ll see that
            supporters of both Democratic and Republican candidates have been prosecuted over the last several years. And it’s not as though the Bush administration went after only Democratic boosters and the Obama Justice Department targets only Republicans.

He told me they’re just not generally motivated by politics.”

            She writes “in fact” because the quote from Gentile doesn’t reflect the facts–and it’s worth noting that he’s the defense lawyer in the Whittemore case. Of course he’s say that it’s political. Mason chaired the FEC under Bush and Obama and would know. My position is still correct. Contextless cherry picked quotes don’t make an argument.

    • glpage

      A supporter of John Edwards who was indicted for a similar infraction was brought up on misdemeanor charges whereas d’Souza is being brought up on felony charges. There apparently are quite a few of cases similar to this every year, but, for some reason the one against d’Souza seems to be more news worthy than others where much more money was moved illegally.

      http://blogs.reuters.com/alison-frankel/2014/01/24/dinesh-dsouza-faces-surprisingly-frequent-campaign-finance-charges/

      • frodo

        Being more newsworthy is different than his being singled out. Of course this will draw more attention given who D’Souza is, but that’s not proof of special targeting. The charges are common, if that article is correct, what’s different here is the “celebrity” of the alleged offender.

  • http://libertyandculture.blogspot.com/ Jason P

    Indeed the principle is one everyone, regardless of partisan position, should take. It’s not surprising that Spencer is defending the rights of a man with whom he has had fundamental differences. I’ve always seen Spencer treat his opponents with respect as he debated the facts. It’s heartening to see him step up immediately and defend d’Souza against this political repression.

    While I have doubts about the case against d’Souza, what is more important, given the massive number of laws and regulations, I have no doubt that the government can selectively prosecute any of its opponents at will. The mere cost of prosecution is a punishment. This is indeed outrageous and it follows Obama’s pattern.

    Sad to say this is becoming “politics as normal” with the Left.
    And the Left, like any bully, will continue to harass and pick and shove around anyone they consider “weak.”
    Sadly the only way to make the behave is likely to be the same way you deal with any bully—and the Right is largely to blame.
    IMO the Right has been the adult in the political fray–we don’t do things like the IRS scandal and charging film-makers/authors we don’t like. The Left however DOES. and letting them get away with encourages them to do it more.
    KInd of like the “nuclear option” they were willing to change the rules for a filibuster proof majority precisely because they don’t feel scared that the Right will use it when they retake both sides of Leg. Despite the act that many of their fellow Lefties WERE concerned and said so.
    Again, sadly, the only to prevent it is to start throwing elbows ourselves.

        Thugs

        In India, the
        British encountered a sinister sect that worshipped the Hindu goddess of death.

        Known
        as thags in Hindi, they robbed their victims then strangled them with a silk
        scarf.

        Indian
        authorities wouldn’t suppress them, and so in the 1830s, the British wiped them
        out by hanging four hundred and imprisoning thousands.

        The

Obama and his administration have done all of these. His skin color means nothing to people who are critical of him because he is a socialist at best and more likely a Marxist. I have the same regard for John Kerry as I do Obama, they are peas in the same pod. But, your cheesy little attempt to proclaim others as racist does expose your willingness to use tactics espoused by leftist demagogues instead of actually debating the issues, perhaps because you are not able to do so.

            Marxist is a code word for, uh, Marxist. As in one who espouses Marxism. The same sort of coding applies to socialist. Obama believes in redistribution of wealth, which is a code phrase for socialism or maybe even Marxism if that redistribution is a bit more forceful. I also apply those terms to William Wilhelm (aka Bill deBlasio), John Kerry, Howard Dean, and lots of other far left persons; all those clowns are white so, applying socialist or Marxist to those guys is code for what?

Got elected twice, killed bin Laden ( which your piece of crap boy Bush was unable to do for 8 years and allowed the biggest terrorist attack in American history on our soil), successfully bailed out GM and the banks, the economy is improving also despite all the opposition he successfully legislated and passed into law the ACA aka Obamacare. Meanwhile, the GOP ( Grumpy Old white Pussies) are whinning, screaming, frothing and barking like the losers that they truly are…..the only thing left is for Obama to pass on the immigration laws favoring non whites and then you conservative losers will be toast! Yes the Senate GOP oafs are again trying to oppose the good president, but mark my words like all else, even this time he will emerge successful and pass the Amnesty act.

            The people who discount any criticism of Obama as racism.

            “His foreign policy is a mess” = “you’re racist”.
            “He lied about Fast & Furious” = “you’re racist”

            According to these people, he cannot be criticized for ANYTHING.

          • uptownsteve

            The economy is improving – You racist

          • frodo

            The NSA scandal led to an investigation and changes in the surveillance regime–how’s that not serious? And it’s far more than a “couple of articles” in the press. Criticism is criticism and no one was going on about race on that one–which is the point.

      • Omar

        Hey, uptownsteve. The last time you were here, you kept ranting about the nonexistent “racism” that our president faces when confronting legitimate criticism of his radical left-wing politics, as well as discussed about an alleged “party realignment” between the two major political parties over civil rights during the 1960s. Well, let me tell you this: there was a party realignment, but it was not mainly between Democrats and Republicans. Most of the contemporary Democrats came from the New Left movement, not from the Republican Party. Most of the racist and bigoted southern Democrats formed their own party, the American Independence Party, which doesn’t exist anymore. While civil rights was a hot topic at the time, it was not the primary force behind the realignment. The realignment happened due to different views on both domestic and foreign policies. Today, most of the Democrat leadership follow the New Left agenda, while the Republican leadership follow the classical liberal (modern conservative) agenda. As for our president, understand that Obama is a mixed-race president (half-black and half-white) who is not directly related to the historical African diaspora in the Western Hemisphere (Obama’s father is from Kenya, which is located in East Africa, while the ancestors of most black people in the Western Hemisphere came from West Africa). That is not fiction. That is a fact. Everything I posted here is a fact.

        • uptownsteve

          An example of Obama’s “radical leftist” policies please. Just one.

          • Omar

            Let’s see. Targeting conservative groups with the IRS, NSA spying scandal, dropping charges against New Black Panther Party members responsible for intimidating voters at a Philadelphia voting station on Election Day in 2008, imprisoning a filmmaker over a movie about Muslims, going on a worldwide apology tour bowing down to America’s adversaries, has connections to Marxist terrorists like Bill Ayers and with liberation theologists like Jeremiah Wright, as well as with other radical left-wing figures, praised the Communist Occupy Wall Street movement, worked as a “community organizer” which is a code word for radical revolutionary, implemented policies resembling government control over private businesses like the automobile industry and much more. The president is no friend of Wall Street nor of the American people.

          • uptownsteve

            So the NSA just started spying under Obama???? The IRS scandal was limited to the regional office in Cincinnati. The Panthers were standing security in front of an assisted living facility in the black ghetto of North Philly so who were they intimidating? Jeremiah Wright is a decorated former Marine. And YOU, my friend, are a deluded rightwing buffoon who has just been owned.

          • Drakken

            Your defense of the indefensible really does say it all, inner city blacks like you will no matter what always go to the least common denominator. The tragic and funny thing is, it is just like Africa, except you have better sneakers.

          • Omar

            And you are a left-wing buffoon, who is probably a card-carrying member of the Nation of Islam and the New Black Panther Party. You are probably also a member of Media Matters and the Democratic Socialists of America. Quit demonizing great politicians like Reagan. Carter and his cronies have done far worse in both domestic and foreign policies.

          • uptownsteve

            Just answer the question will you? Just WHO were the Panthers supposedly intimidating from voting in the middle of black North Philadelphia?

          • Omar

            They were intimidating white voters. The New Black Panthers also intimidate blacks that they view as “Uncle Toms” and “race traitors”. You repeat their propaganda.

          • uptownsteve

            Sorry buddy but white voters don’t go to the polls at 17th and Hunting Park in black North Philadelphia.

          • Omar

            People live everywhere, regardless of characteristics. There were reports that white voters were intimidated by New Black Panther Party members outside voting stationso Election Day in 2008. You like to think that everything is always one sided, when it is not.

          • uptownsteve

            The Fox news method of reporting. “There were reports”. “Some people say”. Where is the PROOF?

          • Omar

            Most of the guys you mentioned have renounced racism and bigotry at some point in their lives, either early on or at some point after the 1960s. Meanwhile, what do you have to say about Robert Byrd? Who did Jimmy Carter call “the essence of the Democratic Party” when he was governor of Georgia? It was then-lieutenant governor of Georgia, Lester Maddox. Why do you never complain about Carter’s racist and bigoted past? You have been watching too much The Butler film, which is full of inaccuracies, which is not surprising since Hollywood is largely dominated by the radical left. Why don’t you complain about the racism and bigotry that exists in Communist Cuba (the only totalitarian dictatorship in the Western Hemisphere), where the longest held black political prisoner in modern history, Eusebio Penalver, served his time in prison? Penalver served 28 years-from 1960 to 1988-in Communist Cuba’s prisons, yet you praise his jailers. Quit referring to conservatives as thugs. You leftists have caused so much misery in the world throughout history and in the present day.

          • uptownsteve

            Robert Byrd renounced his previous racism and bigotry and was one of the first Senators to come out in support of Barack Obama’s presidential candidacy. Thurmond, Lott and Reagan remained racists to the ends of their careers. And were Republicans.

          • Omar

            Now, that is rich. Byrd, like the other men mentioned above renounced racism and bigotry at some point in their lives. I’m sick and tired of you denouncing great politicians like Reagan, while praising lunatics like Jimmy Carter. How about this: Of the two former presidents (Carter and Reagan), who openly supported statehood for the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico? Hint: it is not Carter. Reagan was not a racist nor bigot. Meanwhile, your beloved Carter has spent his life appeasing racists, bogots, Communists and Islamists. Why don’t you denounce Carter and his history of cozying with some of the worst people in the contemporary world.

          • Drakken

            He cannot denounce anything unless it is conservative, anything else does not compute in his black urban world.

          • uptownsteve

            Did Reagan, Thurmonond or Lott ever denounce their opposition to the Civil Rights Act or support for Jim Crow??? NEVER. As late as 1998 Trent Lott said that this country would have been better off if the States Rights party led by Strom Thurmond, would have been elected in 1948.

          • Omar

            And as I have mentioned before, most of the men mentioned above either weren’t bigots or were bigots in their younger days, but renounced racism d bigotry later in their lives. You only like to focus on on ills, both real and alleged, pertained to conservatives, but never focus on ills from the left. Let me ask you this: who did Jimmy Carter refer to as the “essence of the Democratic Party” while the future former president was governor of Georgia? It was racial redistributable Lester Maddox, who was Carter’s lieutenant governor of Georgia. Unlike most of the conservative politicians mentioned above (Most of them either were never bigots or were bigots but renounced racism and bigotry later in their lives, and made efforts to move on. For example, Thurmond even voted in favor of Clarence Thomas to be a Supreme Court Justice), Carter has never denounced Maddox. Even worse, for most of his life, Carter has appeased racists, bigots, Communists and Islanders. What do you have to say about that?

          • SCREW SOCIALISM

            Well of course you did, they were all democrats.

          • uptownsteve

            You racists won’t even vote for a black Republican.

          • Omar

            Actually, we have supported and voted for many black politicians. This past November, I voted for John Burnett to be New York City’s Comptroller. But he didn’t win because of the huge amount of political power that your beloved leftist Democrats have in New York City and all other American urban areas. Why don’t you denounce Janeane Garofalo ND other white leftists for insulting Herman Cain whe he was running for president of the United States more than two years ago? Why don’t you denounce leftists like Melissa Harris-Perry for making fun of the Romney family for having a black grandchild? Why don’t you denounce leftists like Keith Ellison for being involved with black hate groups like the Nation of Islam? And why don’t you denounce black supremacy in this country and in Zimbabwe? Just answer these questions.

          • uptownsteve

            Don’t you even think about demanding denunciations from me when you support a party that thrives on racism and bigotry. Why is the Democratic party racially diverse and representative of all Americans and the GOP is damn near all white? Why does the GOP demonize and alienate people of color? Why can’t black Republicans win significant elective office? Because the white racists who are the base of the Republican party won’t vote for them. And Keith Ellison is NOT a member of the Nation of Islam but a Sunni Orthodox Muslim. You’re a liar.

          • Drakken

            Wasn’t hard to get your back up was it, your lack of impulse control is always you peoples downfall. Frankly, you just have a big chip on your shoulder and think that whitey owes you something, tragic.

          • Omar

            Oh really? So, why did Tim Scott win an election for a South Carolina district seat in the House of Representatives (and why is he a U.S. senator now?)? Why was Michael Steel previously the chairman of the Republican Party? Why is Mia Love mayor of a city in Utah? Why did Allen West previously served as an elected member of the House of Representatives representing a Florida district? The Democratic Party, as well as much of the left, exploits racial and ethnic minorities, especially those living in huge, ururban areas where the Democrats have a huge monopoly for many years. Let me ask you this: why do so many Cuban Americans vote for Republican politicians in elections? It is because you and your beloved leftist Democrats love the Castro family dictatorship in Communist Cuba, the only totalitarian dictatorship in the Western Hemisphere. Contrary to what you claim, there are prominent minority politicians in the GOP. The Democrats promote fear-mongering and scare tactics to maintain its monopolistic dominance ovr minority voters. The contemporary Democrats want total control of everything, you f**k **g left-wing, black supremacist, Nation of Islam-supporting ignoramus. Learn from facts instead of repeating left-wing propaganda.

          • uptownsteve

            LMAO!!!!!!! Tim Scott was APPOINTED to the US Senate and I guarantee you when he runs on his own he will be abandoned by the white conservative base in SC. Michael Steele was propped up as black windoww dressing by the GOP to counter the election of the first black DEMOCRATIC President. 70% of hispanics, who are mainly people of color, vote Democratic. The only hispanics who vote Republican are the white Cubans in South Florida. You can’t handle the truth.

          • Omar

            That’s what you probably said about Tim Scott when he was running for a South Carolina district seat in the House of Representatives before being appointed Senator. By the way, about Scott’s campaign for the House seat, in the primary race, he ran against the late Strom Thurmond’s youngest son, Paul Thurmond. And guess who won the primary race? After winning the primary race, Scott earned the endorsement of his primary opponent and went on to win the general election for the House seat. Anyway, do you realize that there are black Cubans too? Most Cuban Americans-both black and white-oppose the Castro dictatorship in Communist Cuba (the only totalitarian dictatorship in the Western Hemisphere) and tend to support Republicans more because the GOP is strongly opposed to your beloved Castro family dictatorship, unlike your beloved leftist Democrats, which many members of support the Communist regime in Cuba. If you want to see a strong political movement involving many conservative Hispanics, look at the statehood movement in Puerto Rico, where a majority of members of the local New Progressive Party (NPP-despite its name, the NPP is quite conservative, especially on social issues. The party was named after Theodore Roosevelt’s 1912 “Bull Moose” Party and has nothing to do with Henry Wallace’s 1948 isolationist party whatsoever) and other pro-statehood organizations are affiliated Republicans. Anyway, How many times do I have to remind you that Obama is a mixed-race president? He is half-black and half-white (50% black and 50% white), not 100% black as you and your beloved leftist friends in the country’s left-wing establishment like to think of him. Obama is not even directly related to the historical African diaspora in the Western Hemisphere (the president’s father is from
            Kenya, which is located in East Africa, while the ancestors of most black people in the Western Hemisphere came from West Africa). His mother’s side of the family were Americans who were directly descended from Europe, not Africa. Hence, Obama is mixed-race. Anyway, it doesn’t matter what color, ethnic background or other characteristics someone has . All I care about are their politics and how they handle their jobs. I care about skills, unlike you. Unlike you, I am not a race-obsessed ignoramus who creates lies and false statements about American politics. You really need to get a life.

          • uptownsteve

            Most African-Americans, like myself, have mixed race heritage. Race in America is a social construct. Obama clearly identifies himself as a black man. He doesn’t run from it. He embraces it. That’s why you hate him.

          • Omar

            Obama runs away from his half-European heritage. I don’t dislike him for his characteristics. I dislike his policies, which are bringing America downhill. Herman Cain and other black conservatives also identify themselves as black. Skin color is biological. It is not supposed to be social. You leftists are behaving like the racists and bigots of the past that you claim to despise. Anyway, you claim that you have mixed-race heritage. Who in your family is white? Because based on what you posted, you seem to think only one-sided.

          • uptownsteve

            How does Obama run from his Euro heritage? Please explain. You righties are so screwed up in the head you want to label anyone who stands up to your racist hate as a racist.

            Let’s see. Returning the portrait (or was it a picture) of Winston Churchill to the United Kingdom, the Justice Department dropping its lawsuit against the New Black Panther Party, leftists categorizing him as a “non-white” man (despite the fact that 50% of his DNA is of direct European descent), his association with the racial arsonist Al Sharpton (who has a long history of race-baiting and inciting unrest, including two scandals involvingcases of rape that didn’t happen, inciting two anti-Semitic altercations during the 1990s and having an amicable friendship with the late Khalid Abdul Muhammad, who was known for his hateful rants against Jews, whites, homosexuals and Catholic) and much more. You leftists are the real racists and bigots. You are racist against whites, Jews, Christians and minorities who happen to be conservatives. Quit projecting.

You and your beloved leftist friends resort to scare tactics to maintain your political monopoly in urban areas. That is undeniable.

You’ve engaged in a rigorous study of those institutions and feel that you’ve applied a sound methodology and can defend a conclusion that there’s no racism? Intuition? Or something else?

            In addition, I am also tired of you characterizing people like George Zimmerman as “white” even though he is half-Hispanic. It is really interesting to know how you categorize different people’s politics and worldviews based on race and/or ethnicity

          • uptownsteve

            “Hispanic” means “of Spain”. There are white, brown, and black. George Zimmerman’s father is a rightwing Republican white man who obviously passed his hatred and resentment of blacks on to his son.

          • Omar

            Okay, now you are acting completely crazy. Zimmerman’s mother is Hispanic whose grandfather (Zimmerman’s great-grandfather) was black. So, you see, Zimmerman does have some black blood. Why don’t you denounce people like the late Khalid Abdul Muhammad, a Nation of Islam and New Black Panther Party who, during his lifetime, made many hate speeches against Jews. Your beloved Muhammad also called for the extermination of white people. Why don’t you denounce Jeremiah Wright for his amicable friendship with NOI leader Louis Farrakhan? Why do you deny that black supremacy exists too?

          • uptownsteve

            You’re lying AGAIN. Wright has no relationship with Farrakhan. Why don’t YOU denounce people like Rand Paul who consort with white supremacists?

            What truth? Where is the relationship? If that’s the case then Donald Rumsfeld had a relationship with Saddam Hussein. http://politicalhumor.about.com/library/images/blpic-rumsfeldsaddam.htm

          • Omar

            Rumsfeld and Saddam meeting with each other was purely for strategic reasons. Keep in mind that the meeting between the two figures took place in 1983, at a time when Iraq and Iran were at war with each other. Clearly, the U.S. sending arms to Saddam’s Iraq was to counterbalance the arms that Islamic Iran received from your beloved Soviet Union. Rumsfeld did not meet with Saddam because the United Stateswnted Iamdam’s Iraq to be an ally. Romsfeld made the diplomatic effort to meet with Saddam in order to prevent Islamic Iran, a ruthless regime which has declared the United States to be te “Great Satan” , from taking over the Middle East. Wright’s relationship with Farrakhan, on the other hand, is widely regarded as an amicable friendship. That’s the difference.

  • frodo

    D’Souza was indicted for breaking the law–which is what is supposed to happen when people break the law, right? I don’t think that citing Pamela Geller (on WND, of all places) gives much credence to charges of targeting (especially since she doesn’t adduce any evidence either).

    • nomoretraitors

      The Black Panthers broke the law. Why weren’t they indicted?
      The IRS broke the law by sharing taxpayer information with unauthorized third parties. Where are the indictments?
      Conversly, what laws were broken when lanes from Ft Lee to the GWB were closed? If no laws were broken, why is the US attorney investigating?

      • frodo

        The question is whether D’Souza broke the law. Other cases (of greater or lesser merit) aren’t all that relevant. Allegations are investigated and indictments returned if they are judged to be necessary.

        To go on about D’Souza being targeted in some kind of Stalinist gulag-rendering isn’t really supported by the facts. Circumventing campaign finance laws is illegal.

        Were there some campaign of punishment like this, how would this website still exist? Or WND? Or other outlets?

        • nomoretraitors

          Voter intimidation is illegal. So is sharing taxpayer information with unauthorized third parties.

Anyway, what did the victims of the NBPP intimidation do to get intimidated at the voting station besides being white and trying to vote? What did Herman Cain do to receive such hateful remarks from the left besides being a black conservative? Fact-check.

          • Steve Fair

            Produce evidence that white folks were intimidated at the black North Philly polling place. That’s ridiculous. As far as Herman Coon was concerned, that fool deserved every bit of vitriol he received, And it was his fellow Republicans who leaked the info about his extramarital trysts. Fact-check.

          • Omar

            It is really nice to see how immature, racist and bigoted you are by calling Herman Cain the racist c word. First of all, regarding the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case, there is sufficient evidence that two of its militant members were intimidating voters, particularly white voters. There was a video uploaded on YouTube that showed a cameraman confronting the NBPP militants while holding a video camera. The cameraman heard reports of intimidation from nearby witnesses. The incident received national attention after being uploaded on YouTube. Second, regarding Herman Cain, it was the left who insulted him with racist and bigoted comments, and it was the left who forced him out of the race by using baseless accusations against him. The Republicans didn’t leak any information about Cain’s so-called “sexual harassment”. The first woman that publicly accused him of the false allegation was a RINO (Republican in Name Only) who was paid by the lunatic Gloria Alred and the left-wing establishment o make those baseless accusations against Cain. Other left-wing women, particularly other white women, soon followed Sharon GBialek’s (who is a RINO) lead to make the false claims against Cain in order to force Cain out of the presidential race. Fact-check, you left-wing, black supremacist bigoted hypocrite.

      Or perhaps, it’s impossible to engage with D’Souza (as an example) on the level of ideas because he’s unwilling to engage in honest discussion. His work is filled with inaccuracies, distortions, and misrepresentations. Have you read his early stuff on education? It’s very very silly.

      • Seek

    Clearly, in the Totalitarian form of “government” we are apparently aspiring to (i.e., voted for!), “Crimes Against the State”, for which D’Souza is being accused of, are the highest crimes possible, demanding the death penalty, or at least life w/o parole. Nice to see our “Premier” in the WH and his CPUSA “apparatchiks” are protecting the interests of the State.

    “They could, for some reason or another, find themselves somewhere down the line opposing the Obama regime”–Some of Stalin’s truest believers eventually found themselves on the wrong side of dear leader–with rather unpleasant results.

    Kind of reminds me of what Woodrow Wilson did to his political opponents….like Eugene Debs who believed that Wilson wasn’t Left enough.

    God bless Barack Obama. He will go down in history as the man who broke the spine of white supremacy in America.

      For you it’s about class warfare. Noted.

      I’m still waiting for someone to break the spine of black supremacy in Zimbabwe, which has been up since your beloved Robert Mugabe took over the country from the moderate Joseph Muzorewa over 34 years ago. I’m still waiting for a Sudanese dissident to break the spine of Arab Islamist supremacy in Sudan.

      If America is so bad, so racist, pack up your possessions and LEAVE.

      Which country has the system that most closely matches your world view???

      Or are you just a crybaby?

  • popseal

    SO, IT BEGINS ! The final push to a dictatorship built on one man, propped up by unseen forces with immense and untouchable power is apparently under way.

      Imagine it. Prosecuting a criminal for committing a crime. Facism!!!

      Could be.

    Obama has already arrested a film maker whose film he didn’t like, looks like Dinesh is next on the list.

    It was Republican candidate, Wendy Long, who made the complaint against
    D’Souza. Should the authorities have ignored her complaint?

  • American1969

    Wouldn’t surprise me a bit if Obama’s administration was using the DOJ to go after him. It’s not as if they’ve never used a government agency to attack political enemies before.
    *cough!*

    Too bad the GOP is so weak that no opposition to the DEM’s Fascist tactics has been observed. A major reason tyranny triumphs is the weakness and cowardice of the opposition.

      The Repubs have to run a competent candidate.

      Obama was SO WEAK, yet the Repubs couldn’t beat him in the debates. And the smiling moron Biden… ran on his “good looks”.

      The Repubs need better campaign management. Good Guys finish last.

    It’s tempting to want to single out Pres Zero for this Stalinist behavior but the impulse runs within far too many of the political religious zealots who call themselves progressives and liberals.
    They are anything but however they use the labels to hide their coercive nature.
    How many of these brainwashed things do you see calling out Pres O for his totalitarian methods and tactics?? Crickets chirping….
    That’s because they agree with it.

      During WWII the Muslim Brotherhood had a leader at
      Hitlers side. The MB leader raised a division or two for
      Hitler and Hitler threw them into the m aw of Stalingrad
      and they more or less disappeared. They are back!
      They are located throughout the Obama Administration.
      Looks like Marxian-Islamism to me. By any standard, Obama has a link to Islam. Very Shariah Compliant. Just these past weeks
      the DOJ removed “religion” and “national origin” as criteria
      in the evaluation of terrorist activity etc… This is suicidal thinking.
      What the Muslim Brotherhood predicted and wants.

    And to my friends and family members who agree Pres Zero you voted for twice, you all suck!

      Same here.

  • Mundus611

    Where is Congress? Or is it necessary to wait until one of them is arrested for expressing his/her opinion against Obama’s agenda?

  • Sheik Yerbouti

    I have experienced the same thing. But the “wipe the floor with you” part is all in their minds. They see everything as a “victory” and do their best to get in a last jab. It’s like arguing with dangerous children.

    People who believe that Obama envisions America adopting European Socialism are simply not getting the big picture. Obama and his minions are Stalinists—worse than that, nanny-state Stalinists. Communist dictatorships have never before been nanny-state. What is developing now is much, much worse.

  • SoCalMike

    Neither the public nor Republican cowards will say boo about this.
    They’re both too invested in popularity.

    Obama and his commies make G. Bush look like G. Washington!

  • Shelter Somerset

    Obama’s DOJ is a gang of 1960s-style radicals who find themselves on the gun-toting side of the law. Look how they abuse that power, 10x worse than those they claimed they were fighting against. Didn’t George Orwell write a book about that?

  • Skulb

    I agree with the criticisms of Obama but he`s just a puppet, obviously and visibly being handled and given his lines by people like Axelrod, Emanuel, Clinton and Soros. Or have you forgotten the time he thanked himself for inviting himself to Washington when his handlers forgot to replace the Irish PM`s speech on the “presidential” teleprompter?

    Secondly the Wahabist “Muslims” behind all the “terrorism” are being handled by western “intelligence” as a matter of historical record. Mi6 founded this totally un-Islamic movement to destabilize the Ottoman empire before and during WW1 and the Nazis inherited it for a few years before the CIA relaunched it during the Cold War. From at least 1978 on “al Qaida”, Mujahedeen and the MB have been run as provocateurs by the CIA, and Gates even bragged about it in his memoirs. Originally used against the USSR these stooges have been used against Serbia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq and basically every place the US and Israeli governments wants to invade, bomb or plunder. Every “terrorist” attack, including 9/11, is a staged event designed to clamp down on domestic opposition and legitimize imperial aggression, and is what the British were doing for centuries.

    Time to grow up. Judging by the behavior of the Obama regime there may not be much time left to do it.

    This is no surprise from the racist, Stalinist, Chairman Hussein Obama and his Peoples Liberal Socialist Democrap party. Anyone who opposes Obama and his henchman Holder will be investigated and charged. However if Obozo’s lackeys in the IRS “KGB” attack the Tea Party and Conservative groups to make sure they can not oppose Obozo in the last election, the corrupt FBI has no problem with that. There is no problem with gangs of Black hood rats attacking whites on the street or lying about the four men killed in Benghazi, after all it was only caused by a video. The four men murdered where white so it’s not like it was Obozo’s imaginary son Trayvon, so he doesn’t care about that. Chairman Barak Hussein Obama running the most corrupt, racist and 3rd world style of government in U.S. history.

  • EagleJim

    Reminds me of what we learned during the latter part of Obama’s first term: that Marxists and the extremist Left, as a political tactic, was going to move on to the “criminalization” of conservative behavior.

  • Zombee

    Get out and buy some copies of D’Souza’s DVD and hand them out to your friends and family. Knowledge is power …spread some of it around.

  • Dobermite

    Liberal journalists are not the least bit concerned with a conservative President doing likewise to them, because in that case they will galvanize like they did with Nixon and drive the rouge conservative from office in disgrace.

    Right now they are taking the opposite tact with Obama, protecting him and smearing his accusers, and thats a big part of the reason why Obama has grown more and more bold in his despotism. He knows the press has his back. A Republican President would enjoy no such arrangement.

    It makes me sick to think/ note (see) that all those lovely ideals we enjoyed in the 1960’s alongside the likes of Billy Ayers and War Resister League and other ideologues has turned out to be nothing but communist tripe. Even though I later recanted all of that and returned to my roots to embrace free enterprise and entrepreneurship and patriotism for the USA I am sad to think where all that youthful energy and creativity led us and actually horrified when I see how easily we were duped and where the evil forces were taking us all the while.

    Dinesh broke the law and he was arrested. Simple. What the heck has this got to do with Obama? You right wing morons need to stop on this anti-Obama retarded rubbish!

    So, in this long boring op ed, are you trying to say breaking law is okay? Nice, what else can I expect from two faced teabagger?
