While the name Dinesh D’Souza isn’t as common as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck or Bill O’Reilly, he’s still a fairly well-known public figure in conservative circles. Though I’m not sure if I would call him influential. While he has written a couple of books, and subsequently made moves based on them, they’ve mostly been mocked by non-partisans and dismissed by anything remotely resembling mainstream. They’re basically just comedic material for liberals and entertainment for ultra right-wing conservatives who’ve likely worn a few tinfoil hats during their lifetime.
D’Souza reminds me of that person who really wants to be “one of the cool people,” but he just isn’t and probably never will be.
And while I’ve never much cared for the man, his recent comments where he compared himself to Martin Luther King, Jr. really make me think that this guy is absolutely delusional about his importance in society.
“MLK was targeted by J. Edgar Hoover, an unsavory character; I was targeted by the equally unsavory B. Hussein Obama,” D’Souza wrote.
First, let me point out the always immature tendency for conservatives to almost always emphasize President Obama’s middle name, while leaving out the whole “president” title that he’s rightfully earned – twice. Then for this clown to actually compare himself to MLK is just ridiculous.
And last I checked, D’Souza pled guilty to the charges he seems to think President Obama “went after him” on. If he was innocent, and his lawyers thought the case would be defeated at trial, why did he plead guilty and risk time in prison?
Oh, I know – because he was guilty of committing the crime.
Does he really think that President Obama worries about him? If the president was going to “target” somebody in the media, I think there’s a long list of much more important and powerful individuals he could go after before Dinesh D’Souza. For D’Souza to compare himself to MLK, then continually act as if the president is always out to get him does nothing but showcase his total arrogance and complete delusion.
While I’m sure President Obama has heard of him, I’m almost certain he couldn’t care less about his poorly written books and the terrible movie adaptations of them.
D’Souza is someone who so desperately wants to matter nationally, but no matter how hard he tries to make himself seem credible and relevant, almost nobody cares what he thinks about much of anything. He’s basically just someone who’s easy to mock because he’s so delusional about his standing in society that he actually had the gall to compare himself to a civil rights icon.
