Trump: Dinesh D’Souza is a “great voice for America”


Will be giving a Full Pardon to Dinesh D’Souza today. He was treated very unfairly by our government!

D’Souza is right-wing pundit and conspiracy theorist.  We have written about him several times here at The Way of Improvement Leads Home.  And to think this guy used to be the president of The King’s College, a Christian college in Manhattan.

In 2014, D’Souza pleaded guilty to making an illegal campaign contribution.  He was sentenced to eight months in a halfway house, five years probation, and a $30,000 fine.

I mentioned D’Souza in Believe Me: The Evangelical Road to Donald TrumpHere is what I wrote:

Others went even further in their criticism of Obama.  Dinesh D’Souza, a conservative pundit who attended an evangelical megachurch and served as president of an evangelical Christian college, suggested that Obama was channeling his father’s “socialist” and “anticolonial ambition” in an effort to undermine the American way of life.  Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, a favorite among many conservative evangelicals and a politician who had his own presidential ambitions in 2012, said that D’Souza had had a “stunning insight.”

Trump called D’Souza last night to tell him about the pardon.  The President of the United States apparently told D’Souza that he “was a great voice for America.”

Great voice for America? Here are just a few things D’Souza has tweeted over the years:

And here it appears he went into a Sam’s Club and put all his books on the top of the piles:

At least one prominent evangelical has weighed-in:

  1. I’m on a mission to redeem “conservative.” Is someone like D’Souza, a lickspittle, reactionary, con man, playing to the fears, resentments, grievances, hatreds and bigotries of others, really a conservative? Someone whose prime marks for his lies and deceptions are trusting Christians? What is he conserving besides his income-producing potential? Ignorance? Base tribal instincts? Humanity’s worst demons? The hate-rage industry? Regressive feudal-restorationist pundit* would work better.

    *Again, con man would work better than pundit. Oh yeah, unrepentant felon also would work.


  2. Depending on how it is meant, Dinesh D’Souza is a great voice for a significant portion of America. Sad to say.
