Dinesh DíSouza: Obama Mobilizes Resentment Towards America To Grow His Power
Daily Caller ^ | 6/15/14 | Ginni Thomas

Posted on 06/15/2014 7:53:52 PM PDT by Nachum

If the questionable legal charges levied against Dinesh D’Souza by Obama’s Justice Department for exceeding campaign finance laws were to quiet his criticism of the President, it is not working. Yet, one gathers from D’Souza that he sees these charges as one more of the shameless ways this President is using the instruments of the state to attack his critics. With a new book, “America: Imagine a World Without Her” and a movie, “America,” coming on July 2, D’Souza is a man with a message and he is on fire. His movie “2016” brought in 8 million viewers. His new movie,

The only person standing between Obama and his well-deserved Impeachment is crybaby Speaker of the House, John Boehner, PERIOD.

Recently I heard D’Souza on the radio and he said he was sure Obama was a “nice and good man” but is wrecking the country. I was very disappointed in D’Souza for saying that. In fact, it disgusted me.

I guess what D’Sousa said can be disappointing, if what you want to hear are a string of insults a mile long towards the President that makes your heart leap for joy and cause one to pump one’s arms while shouting, “Yeah, yeah!”. :)

However that approach generally causes those that you want to hear the message, and learn, to shut out the messenger and not hear a thing.

Exactly, nothing wrong with being ‘cordial’. Otherwise people will tune him out.

“Obama’s policies and actions indicate a person with not good intentions for the best interests and good of the United States”.

I would prefer to call him an “evil SOB bent on destroying the country he hates”.

And he’s right. I understand that you might want to use a stronger language, but that would only result in the shutting of ears that we need to hear.

Certainly, the decorum isn’t necessary, but it’s usually a meaningless way to gain a larger audience. When referencing a political adversary, it’s backhanded mockery afaic.

That’s what you wrote he said, so I don’t see the change. You and I can use the words traitor or enemy, because we know who he us, but to those whose eyes aren’t yet open, a message has to be crafted that can slip by defenses that have built up defending him.

Considering the DOJ went after him so heavy handed, it’s my guess D’Souza has been very effective in his messaging.

If you can’t see the change, I’m sorry. Saying that he doesn’t have good intentions or the best interests of the US is a lot different than saying he’s a good and nice man.

And every Dem is a good friend to John McCain.

You didn’t clarify what you said.

Because you seemed to think D’Souza used the phrase as if he were describing someone favorable like Ted Cruz — the impression I got from your earlier posts. My point in the first place was to say such phrases can be used in a friendly or mocking manor.

I heard him and it was not in a mocking manner. End of story.

Somehow, I think D'Souza is a far more effective opponent of Obama than you are.

True, but not relevant. We need conviction, not just impeachment, and there are plenty of Democrats that would prevent that from happening. Impeachment without conviction doesn't get rid of O; it would embolden him as the press leapt to his defense.

BULL!

Cantor lost because Virginians voted against the GOP-E Leadership: Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy and Ryan.

When Boehner is no longer Speaker the road is then cleared to force Obama to resign, as it is to late for a lengthy Impeachment of Obama.

The longer that We, The People tolerate Boehner as speaker of the House, the longer We, the People are guilty of tolerating Obama as our Taliban Mullah in Chief.

I agree with you that Boehner is a poor leader, but disagree that Obama would ever resign because of impeachment. I think you’d need nearly certain conviction to get him out, and too many loyal Dems in the Senate would vote to keep him no matter what.

It is to late to have an Impeachment of Obama.

Obama must be forced to RESIGN, independent of Impeachment.

The key to this is Boehner, Obama’s ace in the hole.

Obama is just being Obama, and Boehner is just being Boehner.

As long as Boehner is Speaker of the House, Obama will continue to keep on being Obama, and Boehner will continue to keep on being Boehner.

When Boehner is forced to RESIGN, then, and ONLY then can Obama be forced to RESIGN.

Exactly. My husband and I made a point of going to see 2016. Having read Dinish's books, I knew he would not make a Michael Moore type movie. Media tried to paint it that way.

On the contrary I found it very thought provoking. The movie was not made for me. I already knew Obama was a lying POS, communist, sissy. But others need to see it. I never went to see any of the Bush bashing movies, because I already knew what they would be. Sophomoric at best.
