D'Souza: Obama's Foreign Policy An 'Un-American Project'

On Frank Gaffney’s “Secure Freedom Radio” program yesterday, right-wing filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza suggested that President Obama “is not looking out for America” because he’s taken on the “un-American project” of being “a world referee” instead.

“Look, you know most Americans, most presidents, Republican or Democrat, are within America, and they look at America and the world from inside America,” D’Souza said. “Obama, oddly enough, although born in America, sees himself as kind of a world figure. He’s outside America. America is this sort of petulant child making demands on him and he imperiously gets to decide, ‘Well, that’s reasonable, well, that’s not reasonable, I’m not going to go along with that.’”

D’Souza continued, “So Obama, in a sense, is not looking out for America. You never get the feeling that he is aggressively protecting America’s interests. You get the feeling that he’s some sort of a world referee, if you will, applying a kind of moral lens to decide if America deserves these claims being impetuously pressed forward. So that is a very, to me, un-American project that Obama represents, and whether Hillary will continue that, I’m not really sure, but what I am sure is this has actually been the legacy of the past eight years.”

Alex Jones Diagnoses Hillary Clinton With Psychopathy

It is sad to see Dinesh D’Souza, once considered by many to be a “conservative intellectual,” continue to drift to the far-right fringe. In yet the latest example of this, D'Souza appeared yesterday on Alex Jones’ bizarre conspiracy theory program to discuss his new film on Hillary Clinton.

D’Souza, who claims that Clinton is trying to “steal America,” apparently forgot about the American principle of the right to be represented by an attorney, as he criticized Clinton for representing an alleged rapist in a 1975 trial while she was working as a lawyer in Arkansas.

Referring to an audio recording of Clinton discussing the trial, D’Souza misrepresented Clinton’s remarks and even said he heard “the voice of evil" in the tape.

“And for me, it’s knowing about how psychopaths and sociopaths are,” Jones added. “They have this real self, but everything else is like fake to manipulate. When she goes to California and speaks to Latino groups, she puts on this fake Latino voice. When she goes to Kentucky, she goes, ‘How you doin’ there, boy,’ like she’s, you know, Grandma Clampett getting some possum grits. I mean, it’s like I wouldn’t hang around with anybody that when they got around different groups, talked a different way. I mean, it is bizarre to show that that’s what psychopaths do – and I think she’s a psychopath, I think she’s a full-blown psychopath – is that they do feel this need to just put on these fake acts. It’s very creepy.”

“I think so,” D’Souza added. “And I think she might even have gotten some of this from Bill, because Bill is the master of it.”

D’Souza continued, “People have heard, ‘I did not have sex with that woman,’ but what they actually haven’t heard is you go back and play the old tapes where Bill and Hillary were both confronted with all this stuff and the kind of silky nonsense they put out there, at one point, I think it was Steve Kroft says to the Clintons, ‘Well, you know, I think Americans can kind of accept that you guys, whatever your problems, you’ve worked it out, you’ve made some kind of arrangement, and then Bill jumps in. He goes, ‘Arrangement? We don’t have an arrangement, we love each other. We have a marriage. It’s totally different.’”

Jones interjected: “Yeah, she’s not banging three chicks a day like me too.”

Later, Jones defended Roger Ailes against reports that Megyn Kelly said he had sexually harassed her, claiming that Kelly has “Jezebelian energy” and is secretly “an agent for the Clintons.”

“Well, that’s why Megyn Kelly – I don’t want to get off on a jag – I’ve watched her, I see her on that sinister power trip, it’s that Jezebelian energy, and, you know, Roger Ailes made her who she is,” Jones said. “To see her say, ‘He hugged me once too hard and I want him taken out,’ and I know, because I have the inside baseball, it is from the Clintons, there are talking points, people are being threatened, I’ve talked to the host. And it’s like wow, she really is an agent of the Clintons and all that stuff with Trump and it’s like seeing her join with evil, now, this is a thousand times worse with Hillary, obviously, but it’s just, it’s the creepiness. It’s the dishonor of it. It’s the sliminess that really tells you what we’re dealing with is a bunch of evil people.”

Although Jones said he lacks the energy to control other people, “these evil people” like the Clintons “enjoy… running other people’s lives, knowing what you’re doing, controlling you, ruining you, just because they’re quite frankly jealous of you, and they’re jealous of America, they’re jealous of free market, they’re jealous of open, free societies, compared to everything else, not saying we’re perfect. It’s like what you said in your first film, they want mount our head on the wall.”


D'Souza Calls New Movie A 'Weapon' He'll Drop Like 'A Grenade' Into Democratic Convention

Dinesh D’Souza, who has seemingly abandoned his pretense of being a scholar to become an overt right-wing propagandist, has been pushing his latest movie, “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party,” for months. He bragged back in March that it is so “emotionally powerful” that it will cause Democrats to need counseling.

At last week’s Road to Majority conference, Religious Right activists were subjected to the trailer for “Hillary’s America” three times on Friday. D’Souza described the movie as “a retelling of the whole story of progressivism and the Democratic Party.” In it, he purports to expose the “soul of the Democratic Party.” The trailer features dramatic re-enactments of southern Democrats’ support for slavery, the KKK and Jim Crow.

Sound familiar? This is territory trod a full decade ago by D’Souza’s fellow conservative propagandist David Barton. At the time, PFAW called Barton’s DVD “Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black and White,” “staggeringly misleading” and “one-sided history.” The RNC had been bankrolling Barton’s outreach to African American and Hispanic churches. In Barton’s version of the Democrats-as-the-source-of-all-evil tale, history conveniently ended with passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. That allowed him to ignore the past half century, Goldwater’s opposition to civil rights legislation, the GOP’s infamous “southern strategy,” the GOP’s embrace of the segregationist “Dixiecrats,” and the modern Right Wing’s record of inflaming white racial resentment and using racial dog-whistles for political gain — as if it were a complete mystery why African Americans would ever vote for a Democratic candidate.

D’Souza seems to update Barton by portraying Democratic support for social safety net programs as a means of moving “from slavery to enslavement.” After all, what progressivism really means is “social engineering and social control.”

Of course, thanks to the success of his earlier “documentaries,” D’Souza’s film will have Hollywood-level production values, complete with sinister, pounding music to drive the point home. According to a memorable description by Michelle Goldberg, the movie’s “farcical bombast” is “aimed at those who find Michael Bay films too restrained and artful.”

Bombast is in fact D’Souza’s aim. “A movie is a weapon,” he declared at a Friday evening session at Road to Majority. “There’s a much bigger battle. There’s a political battle, but underneath that there’s a cultural battle, and…underneath that is a moral and spiritual battle.” Democrats have controlled the levers of culture, he said, and there’s a “desperate need” for conservatives to “up the ante on all fronts.”  He said his new movie “blows the lid” off the “gangsterism” of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, who he said is “at the pinnacle of this whole crime syndicate.”

“What are these Democrats hiding?” he asks in the trailer. “What if the goal of the Democratic Party is to steal the most valuable thing the world has ever produced? What if their plan is to steal America?”

“Hillary’s America” is scheduled to open on July 22, between the two parties’ political conventions. The idea, he said, is to “drop this grenade in the middle of the Democratic convention.”

Of course this isn’t the first time D’Souza has tried to sway the outcome of an election. His 2012 movie, “2016: Obama’s America,” made a lot of money, but failed to prevent Obama’s re-election. D’Souza has been fuming for years that if only more voters had seen the movie, the outcome would have been different, a claim he made again on Friday night. It was part of his pitch for people to take their friends and fellow churchgoers to see his new movie on its opening weekend; he said a good opening would take it from 1500 to 2000 theaters.

“Hillary’s America” is the second of D’Souza’s films aimed at keeping Clinton out of the White House. That was also the goal of 2014’s “America: Imagine the World Without Her,” which portrayed Obama and Clinton working together to carry out Saul Alinsky’s plan to lead America down the path to national suicide and socialist tyranny. The two movies also appear to have something else in common: D’Souza complaining that he was a victim of political persecution in his conviction for violating campaign finance laws (to which he pled guilty).

Like many Road to Victory speakers, D’Souza closed by making a pitch for people to elect Donald Trump in spite of his obvious shortcomings. Like the Super Bowl, he said, elections come down to two competing teams, and the winner gets to do what it wants with America.

It is a “true and grim fact of politics,” he said, that you have to fight alongside people who don’t agree with you on all things. We are, he said in a “one of these bizarre moments in American politics,” but that is where we are and we have to choose between the actual choices before us:

And so it seems to me that here we are, and the question before us is, do we want this Obama-Hillary machine, which has been grinding us down, not just picking our wallets but in a sense stealing— my book is “Stealing America,” and by stealing America I don’t just mean our money. I mean stealing our freedom. I mean stealing our American dream. I mean stealing our aspirations, stealing our ability to be who we are and pray as we wish and speak as we believe and think as we will.

Rafael Cruz, Dinesh D'Souza And Selectively Flexible 'Moral Absolutes' On Marriage

Last Saturday, right-wing pundit and propagandist filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza was married in a ceremony that was reportedly to include “prominent players in conservative politics.” Among them was the celebrant, presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s father and campaign surrogate Rafael Cruz, whose fiery rhetoric on the campaign trail has given him folk-hero status among the Religious Right.

D’Souza has spent time on the moral values high horse. In his absurd and reprehensible 2007 book “The Enemy At Home: The Cultural Left and Its Responsibility for 9/11,” D’Souza lumped divorce and homosexuality together as “liberal family values” that offend the Muslim world. He declared that acceptance of divorce is one of the changes in America that “reflect the triumph of liberal morality, the morality of the inner self.’”

In his book, “A Time for Action: Empowering the Faithful to Reclaim America,” Rafael Cruz called the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling “one of the biggest signs of our country’s moral degradation” and decried “secular humanists” for rejecting the idea of moral absolutes:

Everyone, then, feels entitled to establish his or her own standards by which to live. This has given rise to the attitude “if it feels good, do it,” the pursuit of hedonism, immoral or chaotic behavior, greed, and even a life of crime.

On the campaign trail for his son, Rafael Cruz insists that there are moral absolutes that run in opposition to the values of “tolerance”:

“So we’re supposed to prostitute our principles on behalf of tolerance,” Rev. Cruz said.

“Well, I’ll tell you what. There are absolutes. There are absolutes,” he emphasized. “Start being biblically correct instead of politically correct.”

Many conservative evangelical and Catholic leaders teach that divorce is not, except in particular circumstances, “biblically correct.” According to the biblical book of Matthew, Jesus said divorce was unacceptable except in the case of a spouse’s sexual immorality; in the books of Mark and Luke, Jesus is quoted saying that someone who divorces and remarries is committing adultery.

D’Souza is a questionable icon for so-called traditional values. He resigned as president of King’s College in 2012 after a scandal over his traveling with, and calling himself engaged to, a woman while he was still married to his first wife. When called out on his behavior by a conservative reporter, D’Souza apparently lied about having filed for divorce, said he had “done nothing wrong” and proclaimed that he was sure that the woman with whom he was having an affair was “the one for me.”  D’Souza pleaded guilty in 2014 to criminal campaign finance law violations in which he reportedly used both his then-wife and then-mistress as straw donors to a friend’s political campaign. Since then he has consistently portrayed himself as the victim of a political vendetta.

The twice-divorced Rafael Cruz officiating at D’Souza’s wedding — the second marriage for both bride and groom — is one more example of how flexible the Religious Right’s “moral absolutes” about marriage can be when they hit close to home, or when they involve a political ally such as Newt Gingrich or Rush Limbaugh.

And that makes it easy to understand why fewer and fewer Americans are buying the Religious Right’s argument that its conveniently flexible “moral absolutes” justify overriding the constitutional principle of equality under the law and denying loving same-sex couples and their families the ability to protect their commitments through marriage.

Dinesh D'Souza Says His New Movie Is So 'Emotionally Powerful' It'll Cause Democrats To Need Counseling

Dinesh D'Souza joined Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV last night to promote his upcoming "Hillary's America" movie, which he said is going to be so traumatic for Democrats that they may need to seek counseling after seeing it.

In the film, which he brags is "gonna earn me life in prison," D'Souza makes the case that Democrats have been responsible for just about every awful thing that has ever happened in America.

"Our film is the most powerful emotional and intellectual attack on Hillary and the Democratic Party that you can ever imagine," D'Souza said, humbly. "It's about this whole sordid history of a party that has, from the beginning, been defined by subjugation, exploitation and theft. Not just slavery, but continuing with segregation, Jim Crow, the Black Codes, opposing voting rights for blacks, opposing the 13th Amendment, emancipation, the Ku Klux Klan, forced sterilization, support for fascism, Japanese internment during World War II."

"This is the true history of the Democratic Party and progressivism," he stated, "and those things have been swept under the rug and we bring them to light in such an emotionally powerful way that I sometimes think we may need to have counselors outside the theater for Democrats who happen to wander in."

Dinesh D'Souza Says His 'New Movie Is Gonna Earn Me Life In Prison'

Back in 2012, Dinesh D'Souza released a "documentary" claiming that President Obama held "Third World anti-American" views and was working to systematically weaken and undermine this nation.

Two years later, D'Souza pled guilty to using straw donors to make illegal campaign contributions and was sentenced to eight months in a confinement center and five years of probation. 

Those two events are unrelated — D'Souza admitted to making the illegal donations — but he is convinced that he was specifically targeted and persecuted by the Obama administration for having made the anti-Obama film.

Appearing at CPAC on Saturday to promote his latest laughable film, which asserts that the main goal of the Democratic Party from its founding to today has been to "steal America," D'Souza declared that if his last movie got him "eight months in the slammer, this new movie is gonna earn me life in prison."

"It is a sordid history of the Democratic Party from the very beginning all the way through Hillary [Clinton]," D'Souza said of his film. "The Democrats want us to believe that they're the party of equal rights and human rights and civil rights. The truth is the Democrats are the party of slavery, and Indian removal, of broken treaties and the Trail of Tears, they're the party of segregation and Jim Crow and lynching and the Ku Klux Klan, they're the party of Japanese internment, and opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Fair Housing Bill of 1968."

"This is their actual history," he continued, "so what they do is they try to cover it up and the way they try to cover it up is by blaming America, America did this and America did that. But the reality is that America didn't do it, the Democrats did."

Dinesh D'Souza: Democrats Have Hidden Their Pro-Slavery History By Blaming 'Their Crimes' On The South

Broadcasting from CPAC last night, Glenn Beck sat down with right-wing "intellectual" and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza, who was promoting his laughable new movie that promises to expose "the soul of the Democratic Party" as being rooted in slavery.

In his discussion with Beck, D'Souza explained exactly how the Democrats have been able to hide their crimes by blaming them all on "the South." 

"What the Democrats did is they took all their crimes and re-labeled it 'the South,'" he stated. "And so by re-labeling it 'the South,' they forced southerners into a defensive position because southerners thought, 'We did the Klan, we did slavery, we did all these things.' So then the southerners become defensive about all that and that's why there is all this defensiveness about the Confederate flag. These were not southern crimes, they were crimes of the Democratic Party, the northern Democratic Party protected slavery as vehemently. So the Democrats created a situation where they could hide it and they could make our team hide it too and they had a beautiful thing going until it's now time to break up that picnic."

It seems that D'Souza's history lesson conveniently ends in the middle of the twentieth century and doesn't mention the GOP’s racist "southern strategy" and embrace of the Dixiecrats who opposed civil rights.

Dinesh D'Souza: Left Hates Me Because 'I'm A Non-White, Immigrant, Patriot'

Last week, End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles said that President Obama is possessed by demons and is the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler, and decided to invite right-wing author Dinesh D’Souza onto his radio show to discuss “Barack Obama’s agenda to remake America.”

After the Trunews” host asked D’Souza’ why the so-called liberal media “hates” him, the conservative pundit claimed that the Left despises him “precisely because I am a non-white, immigrant, patriot that exposes a lot of the Obama administration running amok, all of this craziness that masquerades under the name of progressivism or progress. I’m blowing the whistle on these scoundrels, so naturally they’re unhappy with me, and I’m happy about that.”

D’Souza said that “old America” — the land of traditional, patriotic values — is “under siege” by “a government that is aggressively attacking the values of that America, trying, in Obama’s words, to remake America. I am here to try to stop that remaking, I kind of like the America that the founders designed.”
