An interview with the conservative polemicist, who accuses the cultural left of provoking al-Qaida's attack in his new book, "The Enemy at Home." By Alex Koppelman
For almost 20 years, Dinesh DSouza has been a prominent force in the conservative intelligentsia, writing such provocative books as Illiberal Education, an attack on multiculturalism, and The End of Racism, which blasts affirmative action. Today, the former senior policy analyst for the Reagan administration is the Robert and Karen Rishwain Fellow at Stanford Universitys Hoover Institution, a conservative think tank.
In his new book, The Enemy at Home: The Cultural Left and Its Responsibility for 9/11, DSouza argues that The cultural left in this country is responsible for causing 9/11 the cultural left and its allies in Congress, the media, Hollywood, the non-profit sector and the universities are the primary cause of the volcano of anger toward America that is erupting from the Islamic world. On Tuesday, during an appearance on Comedy Centrals Colbert Report, DSouza was prodded by host Stephen Colbert into admitting that he agrees with some of the things that these radical extremists [who attacked the United States on 9/11] are against in America.
DSouzas theory has caused, as might be expected, a little consternation. Reviewing the book for the New York Times, political scientist Alan Wolfe wrote that decent conservatives and Republicans
will, if they have any sense of honor, distance themselves, quickly and cleanly, from [D'Souza.] Slates Timothy Noah accused DSouza of libeling both the American left and the American right.

The right is for ever cleaning up after the left, 9-11, the mortgage mess, public sector unions, SSN, obama care, an so much more
Thinking of the Salton Sea ~ it has recently begun to bubble and froth with strange gases and all the animals in it have died.
Should be safe for wading again, eh!
Imagine the Salton Sea filled to the brim with leftwingtards from Hollywood and the New York Times subscriber lists.
Also, I will not see his 2016 movie. This idea that the ghost of a person The Messiah met only once is animating his worldview is laughable. A better movie is Dreams from my Real Father.
I think it is the moie that raises the curtain on the mediocrity of mystery that is our 44th president.
Perhaps an even better choice is to see both movies and then decide for oneself, which is better.
BJ stirred up the hornets nest without killing any of the hornets when he ordered a poorly planned and timed billion dollar cruise missile attack on bin Laden’s training camp at the exact hour Monica Lewinsky was sitting in front of a grand jury spilling the beans about BJ. Never forget.
Not sure I agree with his assessment totally. We seem to forget terrorism has been growing unchecked for decades, it did not just begin on 911. The entire world has run from defeating terrorism until Bush decided to go after Al Qaeda in 2001. The PLO started with just a few followers, then came Black September, the Red Brigade and Abu_Nidal and we (the world) did nothing. Since the end of WWII, the world has run away from standing up for what is right. Oh, we made the obligatory stands in such far away places as Korea and Vietnam at the horrific cost in lives and then, just ran away and left the mess. Even with the superficial success of Gulf War I, we still did not finish it and left Sadam in place. This has been brewing for a long time under both liberal and “conservative” (I use that term loosely) administrations with each event bigger more deadly than the last, and still we did nothing. We are now preparing to run away again. I fear the next event may be worse than the last.

I have no qualms with real liberals. I may not approve of their beliefs, but I value freedom highly.
What we are dealing with in today’s “liberals” are in fact Marxists, Socialists, and Communists of one stripe or another. They are as anti-freedom as any other dictatorial wanna-be that history has ever had.
They cannot be reasoned with. They mean to destroy us via any means necessary.
I say it’s past due time to stop playing nice.
Actually, trooferism and all that aside, there is quite a body of compelling evidence that a coalition of leftists, muslims, crazed “libertarians” and traditional nazists pulled 9.11 together.
