What's so great about the justice system? . . . . "Dinesh D'Souza, conservative filmmaker, pleads guilty to straw donor scheme" http://www.newsday.com/news/new-york/dinesh-d-souza-pleads-guilty-to-felony-for-illegally-funneling-money-into-2012-ny-senate-campaign-1.8092030 - . . . . . Regarding "Opinion - From the Critics", why would anyone care what World Net Daily (WND) thinks? For some examples of WND trash see: http://www.rightwingwatch.org/category/organizations/worldnetdaily
I think this book would make a really great novel. D'Souza paints this really compelling fiction about the president of the United States, and if I read a similar account about a fictional President I'd think it was a really cool story. Unfortunately, this book is marketed as NON-fiction, which means that the author has the burden of demonstrating that his ideas are true, or at least plausible.
Dinesh D'Souza's whole premise is that Barack Obama really wants America (and the west) to fail, all as part of an elaborate Revenge Fantasy to make America pay for all of colonialism. Every single thing that, in D'Souza's eyes, was either a failure or a bad idea, is attributed to anti-colonialism. His formula is straightforward: Take a policy, explain why it doesn't work. Explain why conservatives don't like it. Explain that Obama isn't actually a socialist or Muslim or whatever, as most conservatives think, but just wants America to fail. D'Souza does a lot of pandering by pretending to be objective by poo-poo-ing conservative criticisms in favor of his own.
D'Souza relies too heavily on Obama Sr.'s criticisms of Colonialism without actually establishing any actual links between Obama Jr. and those philosophies. He talks about both father and son, but does little to show philosophical connections other than by vague insinuation. D'Souza also has a habit of trying to "prove" his theory by using it to make "predictions" about events whose outcome is already known. That's not a prediction, especially when the outcomes were already probable and the situations are cherry-picked. There are a few times where *future* predictions are made, and rather than predicting nefarious actions, D'Souza predicts fairly mundane outcomes, just with secretly nefarious intentions. i.e. Expanding environmental policy, but *not for the reasons you think!*
In the absence of actual facts and evidence, D'Souza relies almost entirely on innuendo and suspicion. There is little to tie Obama's actions and decisions (both good and bad) to any elaborate Anti-Colonial Revenge scheme.
Dinesh D'Souza's books used to be better. Either the election forced a deadline that precluded real research for this, or Dinesh D'Souza is turning into the next Jerome Corsi (a laugable conspiracy theorist who is more a punchline than an author).
