“A few days ago I received a call from a man I recently met named George. He was a bit flustered, and soon informed me that his young son was sick with a chest condition. He pleaded with me to send him $1,000 to cover the medical bills. Since George was at the hospital I asked him to let me speak to a nurse, and she confirmed that George’s son was indeed ill. So I agreed to send George the money through Western Union. He was profusely grateful. But before I hung up I asked George, ‘Why are you coming to me?’ He said, ‘I have no one else to ask.’ Then he said something that astounded me, ‘Dinesh, you are like a brother to me.’” -Dinesh D’Souza from an excerpt of an article written for FOXNews.
Never mind that George’s REAL brother is none other than President of the United States, Barak Hussein Obama. The irony of George calling Dinesh for help should not be lost in translation. Currently Obama has TWO relatives residing in the United States illegally. Obama portrays himself as the compassionate, liberal do-gooder, champion of the poor and unwashed. Obama on the campaign trail burbles line-after line, day- after- day about other people who should pay “their fair share,” while vilifying the rich (rich according to Obama is defined as a small business or family making more than $200,000 per year). He disingenuously attacks Romney on his overall personal tax rate that he paid, while Obama obscures the fact that investment income that is calculated at a capital gains rate from income that was ALREADY TAXED. When you point out the Romney has consistently DONATED up to 10-15% of his wealth year after year to church and charity (not just a paltry 1-4% during election years like the Obamas), Romney has seeded more wealth back into the world than Obama can possibly comprehend.
Fast forward to 2012. Barak’s biological half brother is in desperate straits with a sick child. Who does he call? Dinesh D’Souza. D’Souza has been vilified by the left for a number of things. Daring to debate atheists and winning would be one thing. D’Souza has written several books on Christianity, conservatism, Ronald Reagan, racism, and even life after death. D’Souza met George Obama during an interview with George for the film 2016: Obama’s America. The film recreates possible motivations for President Obama’s seemingly incongruous and harmful policies. The narrative follows Dinesh’s journey back to the key places (and people) that influenced Obama from his childhood and early adulthood. The theory is that Obama has allowed the influence of anti-colonialists (popular in third world nations) together with Communism to influence his liberal ideals and foster the goal of ending America’s reign as a superpower, breaking down her wealth and redistributing it on a global scale.
D’Souza’s critics merely criticize or name call – with no evidence to support their conclusions that Dinesh is “wrong.”
Case-in-point – a critique offered by Rick Moran that makes no sense whatsoever.
"This much is clear; D’Souza is not cut out to be a scholar. His mind appears to be too undisciplined to rigorously examine the subject he writes about, taking the issues apart and putting them back together so that he is intimately familiar with all aspects of the matter. Nor does he seem to be very self critical in that I don’t see him constantly challenging his own ideas. While this is a failing of many people who consider themselves scholars, constantly bulldogging one’s own work brings texture and richness to arguments and gives depth and nuance to criticism." – Rick Moran
So why did George call Dinesh? Well, it would seem unlikely in that Dinesh was portrayed by the Obama family as an enemy. D’Souza was denied an interview with Obama’s grandmother at the last minute once it was discovered that Dinesh was interviewing George and that his conclusions about the Obama family might not be flattering. Her suspicions were unwarranted and had she given D’Souza the chance, she would have been pleasantly surprised as George was.
George recognized Dinesh’s open-minded and fair treatment of the Obama family. George also recognized someone who is a genuine Christian in deed and character. That is why George when he needed help the most, bypassed his bio brother, Barak Obama and called on his Christian brother, Dinesh D’Souza.
