Dinesh D’Souza Claims Indictment Might be Payback from President Obama Over Propaganda Film

screencap-fox-newsWhere there’s a conservative being investigated for possible crimes, there will be a conservative conspiracy that claims President Obama is somehow behind it.

I joked a couple of years ago that I should have started writing down every conspiracy conservatives had come up with about President Obama, then one day publish that list in all of its insanity.  But by the time I had thought about doing that, the list was longer than I could have kept up with.

A list that just keeps growing.

Perhaps most of you have heard about Dinesh D’Souza and his recent indictment for illegally organizing a scheme to give excessive campaign donations to a candidate for United States Senate.

A federal court has charged D’Souza with one count of making illegal contributions in the names of others, and one count of causing false statements to be made.

Essentially he was breaking the law which limits contributions to $2,500 each, for a total of $5,000, from any individual to any one candidate.

Well, while speaking with Sean Hannity on Fox News, Mr. D’Souza implied that this indictment might be retaliation from the Obama Administration for an anti-Obama film he made prior to the 2012 elections called “2016.”

The film was basically nothing but a collaboration of the same worn-out conservative talking points collected and packaged as a “documentary.”

Hannity led up to D’Souza’s comments by basically setting up how “scary” the Obama Administration is.  He brought up the fake IRS conspiracy where conservatives claim the IRS targeted conservatives groups – a notion they continue to push even though later evidence has clearly shown that liberal groups were targeted as well.

Then he began his interview with D’Souza.

D’Souza went on to tell Hannity, “I will say that the film, 2016, was a film that does seem to have gotten under President Obama’s skin.”  With his evidence being that Obama’s “Truth Team” addressed it during the 2012 campaign.  He then went on to say, “Whether this is a kind of payback remains to be seen.”

Before finishing with D’Souza, Hannity said Obama is “certainly targeting conservatives” and it’s “been pretty well proven.”

Well I guess it’s been proven – as long as you buy into these nutty right-wing conspiracies based on their paranoia instead of reality.

So now these two seem to believe that President Obama has influenced a federal grand jury to indict Mr. D’Souza because he made some lame “documentary” which was nothing more than a 90-minute anti-Obama ad just before the 2012 election.  That’s essentially what Hannity clearly implied and D’Souza was trying to perpetuate.

Oh, and during the entire interview details of the charges D’Souza is facing weren’t discussed.  This “interview” was clearly organized as a prop for D’Souza to spout off this new asinine conspiracy theory.

It’s just ridiculous to honestly believe President Obama cares anything about this guy.  I’m sure in his day to day job as President of the United States, husband and father of two he had time to make it a point to “get some revenge” on D’Souza.

And while that’s totally believable, I’m just going to go with my own “conspiracy” that D’Souza most likely violated the law with his attempt to funnel an illegal amount of money to a particular United States Senator.

But that’s just me.

      Naw, the Obama administration would never use the IRS to suppress antagonistic political organizations or share information about Romney’s returns to the Obama campaign, have secret courts, allow automatic weapons to wind up in the hands of Mexican drug lords, tolerate secret courts, or allow the NSA to spy on regular Americans so why would D’Souza even imagine scrutiny would result from bad mouthing the Obama administration?

    As we all know President Obama is not Chris Christie.

    d’souza’s lawyer didn’t disipute the charge. instead he indicated that d’souza’s intentions were good. so wait, if he thought they would going after him, he was dumb enough to break the law. or was he just dumb enough to break the lawyer and then whine about how with no proof, he things it was a conspiracy against him? he had to resign from his presidency of a fundamentalist college because he was having an affair out of marriage. do we get the impression that this guy has trouble with following the rules?

    Dinesh D’Souza — along with Michelle Malkin, Geraldo Rivera, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, as well as fellow Indian Americans Bobby Jindal and Nikki Haley — are good for nothing except for case studies on ethnic self-hatred. I’ll never understand why some minorities tend to possess conservative views, views which essentially advocate second-class treatment for them.

      And not a single non-hypocritical liberal called you a racist for that.

      • John

        Why should they? It’s the truth.

      • Charles Vincent

        It is not racist it’s bigot racist is misused in that context.

    Want to hear Conservative squeel like the pigs they are ? Talk about stopping ALL payments to Non Profits for 5 years and instead use the money to pay for Food Stamps !!!! Watch as they freak out claiming they will lose thier Beach Houses used for Religious Retreats, Houses on “K” Street in D.C. and how they might have to cash in some of the $BILLIONS in Stocks and Bonds they hold !! That’s right Non Profits and Charities HOLD $Billions in Stocks and Bonds while still getting $Millions in U.S. Grants each year. Time for them to ZERO OUT spending all those Tax Dollars on Americans and STOP BEING A POLITICAL SLUSH FUND !

    • Jim Bean

      Those billions in Bonds represent the money conservatives loaned to you to get your community sewer system repaired and the stocks are represent the money loaned to build the facility where your neighbor works.

  • FD Brian

    Even Debbie Schlossel calls this guy a piece of shit hypocrite muslim lover.

    Just the fact that he could make a claim like this means that he has no idea who President Obama is. We Black Americans have a long history of dealing with people like D’Souza and tend to let their comments go into one ear and out of the other. We learn at a young age that it’s not worth our time to spend any energy thinking about them and their nonsense. President Obama has excellent restraint when it comes to dealing with tools like D’Souza. This only comes from a long history of experience in dealing with them and knowing that they mean you no good from the first time they appear. IOWs, they don’t count.

    • Charles Vincent

      Let me get this straight. You’re saying that everyone that hates Obama hates him solely because he is black?
