D'Souza's new book banned from NY Times bestseller list
American Thinker ^ | 06/21/2014 | Rick Moran

Posted on 06/21/2014 5:37:19 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

If it wasn't so frightening, it would be silly. Dinesh D'Souzas, newly released book, America: Imagine a World Without Her, has done quite well the first two weeks it's been out. But the New York Times has refused to include it in its Nonfiction Best Seller list.

Washington Examiner:

His new book, on sale for three weeks, isn’t just absent from the top 10 lists already set for the next two Sundays, but totally missing from the list of the nation’s top 25 nonfiction hardcovers despite having sales higher than 13 on the latest Times chart.

According to sales reports provided to Secrets, D'Souza's new book America: Imagine a World Without Her, sold 4,915 in the first week and 5,592 in the second week. Had it been included on the upcoming June 22 Times hardcover nonfiction list, it would have ranked No. 8, and then No. 11 on the June 29 list that puts Clinton's sales at 85,721. The lists are widely circulated in the publishing industry before they go public.

 

The Times is somewhat mysterious in how it calculates its list, but it includes several books selling well under 3,000 copies in a week. A spokeswoman said, “We let the rankings speak for themselves and are confident they are accurate.”

Now that Slick Willie’s wife’s book has taken a tumble, they’ll probably “apologize” and let it back on the list. They’ve done everything they could do to make her look good.

It’s decided on the same basis that Nobel Peace Prizes are handed out. By whoever/whatever makes the greatest contributions toward world socialism.

Lol.
AMERICA envy. We have a NEW syndrome!!

Though I do have to say that for every THREE immigrants to America, ONE does go back to his/her homeland. I've read that statistic many times over the decades.

I don't think many Asian countries realize how hard Americans work. I know that some Russian folks came here and were shocked that Americans worked so much and so hard. They seemed to think that the streets were paved in gold and everything was free.

Hah. Live and learn, товарищ (tovarishch).

They’re becoming more irrelevant as time goes on. Most people expect newspaper reporting to be non-fiction.

Strange. Have they finally decided to stop allowing conservative books on their list? They usually stay there a long time and get no mentions or reviews in the paper.

The list is now worthless. Another political illusion, just like the government statistics.

Another page borrowed from the Soviet playbook: the Soviets airbrushed from images individuals who became non-grata after the picture was taken for political purposes; the NYT is now “airbrushing” books out of the list for political purposes.

I’m #6 on the HOLD list for this book at my uber-Liberal Lie-bary. I can hardly BELIEVE that they’re OFFERING it to be shared/read! Hmmmm...maybe even the local Libtards have turned against The Won? *SNORT*

“D’Souza offers a passionate and sharply reasoned defense of America, knocking down every important accusation made by Progressives against our country.”

I’ve not followed the story closely, but from what I understand, this guy has written and produced documentaries the administration doesn’t like and therefore being an enemy of the state is being investigated. This is happening both as a means of punishment and as an example of what happens if you defy this evil at work. It is an unclean spirit ruling from the white house,

It was rightly called tyranny when Nixon was accused of far less,

Now they get a pass by pretending its just politics, nothing to see here, the MSM not only is complicit in furthering this injustice but is wholly ignorant of why its not journalism they practice but instead sycophantic worship,

This nation is in its lasts days as a republic,

They’re scared that Americans will appreciate the real America and choose conservatives to revive it.

The NY Slimes learned the Soviet playbook quite early, while Uncle Joe was still the goto guy in charge of the Progressive Revolution.

The Commies are doing a full court press to make sure the Hildebeast become President. Anyone trying to influence public opinion with conservative ideas, gets kicked to the curb.

Librarians are forefront Commies today. We had a neighbor some years back that was a “retired Librarian.” He thought that there were just some things that people should not be allowed to read. Guess what those things were.

Let's really stick it to the NY Slimes and make the commie rag's worst dreams come true. Trot to the nearest book store and pick up a copy of Dinesh's book. Never was the price of a book so worthwhile...for so many reasons.

In a sense, Dinesh is we...and we are he!

True, and also floating early on (before shes a candidate and required to answer) any negative angles that could paint her in a bad light, so she controls the conversation and can later claim “its old news, nothing to see here” rather than have it be brought up closer to the election when it could have even a minor influence,

its alinsky/Goebbels propaganda techniques at work and its just getting started,

I wouldn’t be surprised to see someone like McCain endorse her or even get on the ticket if it looks like she has it wrapped up,

But I’ll be looking to see where that evil spirit inside that thing currently occupying the white house goes to, what other candidates have that same look, its in his eyes and it wont release that authority easily,
