GOP racist, top-thinker Dinesh D’Souza calls Obama “Grown-Up Trayvon”

Well, it seems that conservative Republican thought-leader Dinesh D’Souza, who’s former policy analyst for Ronald Reagan, and a former president of King’s College in New York (a far-right Christian liberal arts school), is in hot water.

Again.

This time for mocking the late Trayvon Martin, the African-American teen who was shot dead in Florida a few years back while leaving a 7-11.

Dinesh D'Souza (2012)

Dinesh D’Souza (2012)

D’Souza has a proud past of conservative himbo eruptions. Some might remember that D’Souza resigned his evangelical Christian college presidency in disgrace last year after it was learned he’d been having an affair.

Well, technically more than an affair.

Given that D’Souza was at an event at his religious right college – an event about “Christian values” – with a woman named Denise Joseph who he was introducing to people as his fiance.  Which must have come as quite a surprise to D’Souza’s wife of 20 years, who was not at the event.

Beyond bordering on multiple marriage, D’Souza is also famous for the ultra-conservative borderline racist wankfest film known as “2016: Obama’s America“– which was based on D’Souza’s equally racist book, “The Roots of Obama’s Rage.”

(Spoiler alert: D’Souza’s book is all about an ultra-scary angry African-American man who fools American voters into thinking he’s not constantly boiling with Hulk-like rage. I’m not alone in feeling D’Souza’s book and film both should be filed under ‘racist fantasy fiction.’)

In addition, D’Souza’s written diatribes against feminism, said liberals were partly responsible for 9/11, argues the problem with African nations is that they weren’t colonized long enough by European nations, and that the horrors of prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib were simultaneously: (1) the result of the “sexual immodesty of liberal America;” and (2) really no worse than staying at any mid-level Middle Eastern hotel.

And he’s expressed sympathy for radical Islamist terrorists — but only so far as it goes with the notion of killing American liberals.  More on all that from Alex Koppelman at Salon:

In his new book, “The Enemy at Home: The Cultural Left and Its Responsibility for 9/11,” D’Souza 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 Central’s “Colbert Report,” D’Souza 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.”

And D’Souza, of course, hates President Obama.  Why, you ask?  Because the President refuses to act like some crazy white-hating America-loathing nutjob, which in D’Souza’s world is proof that the Barack is all that and more.  Mark Warren, writing in Esquire, does a great job exploring the depths of D’Souza’s inner- Ann Coulter:

Obama possesses in his pocket what can be called certificates of racial absolution. Now, I don’t mean by this simply that he’s black, African-American. That’s not the key to it. The key to it is that he’s a different kind of African-American. He’s not Jesse Jackson, he’s not Al Sharpton. We’re used to black leaders who make racial demands — “you’re a racist, unless you pay me'”— and that has put America in a very defensive position. Here comes Obama, and he never brings the subject up. He’s above it. He’s the racial healer…. The fact that he doesn’t intimidate you with explicit racial appeals is immensely relieving to whites, because whites go, Oh wow, he allows us to believe that we’ve gotten beyond all that…. This is Obama’s secret weapon.

See, Obama doesn’t do or say anything white-hating, which is all the more proof that he’s a white-hater.

D’Souza brings new meaning to the word “hoodie.”  As in white hoodie.  Speaking of which, then there’s D’Souza’s latest racist himbo eruption on Twitter.

Here’s D’Souza’s tweet, screen-captured for all posterity:

D'Souza racist tweet

Trayvon Martin, you’ll recall, is the African-American teenager who was shot, and killed, by neighborhood watch enthusiast George Zimmerman in Florida.  It’s not entirely clear, therefore, whether D’Souza is suggesting that the President be shot and killed, or what – only 4 days after the nation marked the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination.

Of course, the outcry and condemnation has been swift and unrelenting. But that didn’t stop D’Souza from whining, as reported in Politico:

D’Souza followed up 45 minutes later, “Feigned outrage on the left over me calling Obama ‘grown up Trayvon’ except that Obama likened himself to Trayvon!”

Note: This tweet has also been deleted. Adam Clark Estes collected a few of the funnier replies, posting them also to Twitter:

    It’s not exactly trying to be every man. He’s not trying to be a white man. Those of us who aren’t white understand. When I was a young man (early 20s), I was stopped three times by police officers for walking in my own neighborhood. More accurately, I was stopped for being young and hispanic in a solidly middle class neighborhood.

  • The TRUTH

    I’d love to have a discussion with you Biggie77 but I’ve been blocked from posting here by the COWARD that runs this blog. Maybe if someone would buck up and be a MAN or a WOMAN and actually have a debate instead of a one way conversation that might be good. You may actually open my eyes to some things and vice versa. You never know.

    I stand 100% behind my comment that Obama is the most divisive President in our history and plays the race card as well when it suits him. And as is typical anyone that opposes the President is automatically a RACIST. Sorry, that doesn’t work. The President is being criticized because he is a liar and a weak leader. Need I repeat “If you like your healthcare plan you can keep it, PERIOD” or “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor, PERIOD” Plain and bold faced lies to sell his ACA that is a trainwreck. Blowing up the entire healthcare system to service 15% of persons without insurance was a BAD thing. He should have just given them medicare or medicaid for free and been done with it.

    And need I remind you of the President stating that Syria using chemical weapons would cross a “red line” and we would be compelled to act. Well, Syria jumped over the line and is laughing in our face. Instead of being strong and ordering strikes and informing the American people as soon as our planes were safely out of Syrian airspace he balked and went to congress for approval to act so if something went wrong he wouldn’t be unilaterally responsible. And don’t get me started on Iran. The “deal” we made is simply another sign of weakness. If you believe for one minute that Iran is going to give up on 25 years of research and billions upon billions of dollars spent on gaining a nuclear device than you are the definition of naive. The definition of appeasement and weakness.

    I expected the President to be more inclusive and less racially divided when he was first elected as the great uniter and the bringer of hope and change. I don’t expect the President to get involved in racially charged incidents. Princeton professor Gates and Trayvon Martin are two instances that come to mind where the President should have risen above the race game and spoke of tolerance and justice for ALL. No one can attack the President without being called a RACIST and the President can be RACIST and not get called out on it.

    I’m not at all confused about the issue at hand. The issue is no one can demean the President in any manner. No one can call him out when he lies and misleads the American people. No one can point out any flaws in the President or his actions. We should just sit back and accept the deception and be quiet.

  • Biggie77

    You link to a dishonest hysterical rant like that and have the balls to accuse those who disagree with you of not having a leg to stand on? Hilarious.

  • Biggie77

    I think most of us are confused by what “issue” you think is it hand.

    I’ve always thought “Dinesh” was a Pakistani pretending to be an Indian of Portugese decent. Few have done more to advance the cause of Islamic fundamentalism as “Dinesh”. He worked for and still worships the only President to have compared Islamic fundamentalists to our founding fathers. “Dinesh” worships the only President to have dedicated a space shuttle to Islamic fundamentalists. We are still paying for the damage the President for whom “Dinesh” worked.

    “Dinesh” is the best argument for tougher screening of potential immigrants to protect this country against Pakistani agents.

    Y’know, you could have actually started a respectful discussion on the merits, or lack of them, in paying attention to idiots like D’Souza. But you had to turn your comment into an insult-fest.

    Apparently, you have a problem with Becca. I would suggest you familiarize yourself with the commentary she has put in both her pieces here and her comments. You’ll find a depth of thinking and motivation that does not fit your description. Your characterization of her being naive and playing into his hands is well off-the-mark.

    I suggest you go stand in the corner for a while. You may need the break.

  • http://www.newmillgay.com/ The_Fixer

    Obama being “the most DIVISIVE President in history” is a bit of a stretch. There are plenty of examples of others who have been far more divisive.

    I would say that the reason he may be considered divisive is solely on account of his race. The ones who consider him divisive often bring race into the discussion, which is telling. I think that you should reflect carefully on your own motivation for making this post.

    It also is worthy to note that the President doesn’t comment on everything that happens in the world, only on things that the press may ask him about. The press asked him about racial profiling in the case of Henry Louis Gates, and he was actually pretty tame in his assessment by saying that the Princeton Police acted stupidly. They asked him about Trayvon Martin, and he spoke as one would expect him to speak – noting a commonality in background.

    The only story I was able to dig up about a 95 Year-Old WW II veteran getting killed had no mention of him being killed by “a black mob”. The story I saw was of a vet getting killed in a nursing home because he was tased by police. Runaway police power may be related to racism, but not in this case. If there was another story that more closely relates to the point you’re trying to make, provide a link. I’m not finding it.

    By the way, the Australian baseball player was shot in Oklahoma, not Utah. And one of the assailants was white. That kind of takes away from the supposed motivation being racism as well as the boredom issue. Oh, and there’s the issue of how these kids had access to the firearms used in the commission of that murder. Wanna talk about how this country is awash in firearms and how they are so easily obtained by people of ill intent?

    The link you provide to the Examiner article is hardly more than opinion, and full of catch phrases designed as red meat thrown to a particular audience (which is apparently you). It had them all in there – “Liberal Media”, “Hate America”, etc. It is not worth anyone’s time as it is nothing but musings from an ill-informed person.

    Now let’s look at some facts. Black people are more likely to be murder victims (50.4% black when they are only 13.8% of the population). Black-on-black crime is the most prevalent in this country, which would mean that black-on-white crime, which you seem to be stressing, is far less of a problem than you report.

    It’s also noteworthy that while the rate of firearm homicides by all races has been decreasing, the proportion of black homicide victims has been increasing.

    In short, this is not a contest – who kills the most and what race they are. These are serious problems that require more than pointing a finger at one individual and demanding that he talk about one particular type of crime. Murder is murder, and we have to fix this. Race doesn’t matter – people are getting killed. That’s what matters.

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    Yes and no. It was originally used for males, but has been used for females since the 1920s. The Oxford English Dictionary first used it for females in 1929. (I had to look that up) However, I do know it was used for a female in the movie “Dear Heart” (Miss Bimbo Jones) in the mid-sixties. A character played by Vicki Lawrence on the “Carol Burnett Show” was referred to as a bimbo. The character had platinum blond hair piled on her head, a high pitched, nasal voice, and was dumb as a post.

    I have so many useless facts in my head, it’s a miracle I remember to breathe.

  • JozefAL

    Of course, originally “bimbo” meant a “brutish or unintelligent man.” It most likely derives from the Italian (male) noun, “bambino” meaning “baby” but appears to have, within just a decade of its first use in America, changed to refer to women.

    I’m sorry but Obama is the most DIVISIVE President in history. I have never heard of him coming to the defense of a white person assaulted by or killed by a black person BUT he comes out with statement like “the Princeton police acted stupidly” regarding the incident between a black Princeton professor and the Princeton police to “I could have been Trayvon” but a 95 year old white World War II vet killed by a black mob or the Australian baseball player shot to death in Utah by blacks who were “bored” certainly isn’t addressed. It seems to be one way.

    http://www.examiner.com/article/black-on-white-hate-crimes-increase-with-obama-s-silent-endorsement

  • MoonDragon

    What we have, then, is two black men occupying places that self-appointed guardians of the status quo believe are inappropriate. These elites feel justified in using any tactic up to and including lethal violence (in the case of Zimmerman). So we have Trayvon, a black teenager evicted with extreme prejudice from an neighborhood where he could not possibly belong by a violence prone cop wannabe, and Obama a black man with the temerity to believe he can be part of the American world model being pursued and politically bludgeoned by his betters, the rightful inheritors of the American way of life as dictated by our founders. How this is a comparison that works to the detriment of Mr. Obama (or Mr. Martin) is a puzzle. Seems George Z. and the obstructionists in Congress are the ones who come off worse for wear in this comparison.

    Obama brought the comparison up himself, because he was once a young black man, who had a less than perfect adolescence and could have just as easily found himself in a similar situation if he was stalked and confronted by a racist. What D’Souza is trying to drum up is a pathetic attempt at pretending Obama is some kind of angry black man that everyone should be afraid of. There is nothing ‘coming back to bite him’, because the comparisons are obviously not equal in intent. One is realistic and introspective, the other is just racism.

    First of all Trayvon was not shot leaving a 7-11, he was shot quite a distance away inside a gated community. Semantics? Maybe but if your going to use Trayvon at least get the story right. And Obama brought the comparisons on HIMSELF when he said he could have been Trayvon 30 years ago. Be careful when you try to become an “every man” because those comparisons can come back to bite you.

    It occurs to me, reading a bit more into his bio… he’s actually a minority in India, where he was born, too. Being a Konkani Goan Catholic, with a Portuguese last name. If he had stayed in India, he would have been the subject of the same level of discrimination he now affords others. Kinda like the kid, abused by his father, grows up to abuse his own kids.

  • http://buddybest.tripod.com/index.html BuddyNovinski

    Reactionaries merely check what used to be and then desire it again. Reaganomics merely took us back to the nineteenth century like the 1920’s. It added additional welfare for the wealthy under the guise of defense (of the military-industrial complex). Simply repeating the same old stuff every time invites Alzheimer’s. Thinkers actually look at things differently and learn other views, move with the times, and grow more neurons. I doubt if the god Reagan ever considered that his hero Calvin Coolidge not only would not approve of the pentagon waste, but also that Coolidge was mentally ill during his full term after his younger son died in 1924.

    Dinesh D’Souza is a controversy exploitation artist. When self satisfied tools, like Becca Morn, take his bait and rant on about him with her morally superior tone, she plays right into his hands. Does she really think she is hurting his objectives? Come on. She’s promoting them. So while she is patting herself on the back for exposing him as a racist, misogynist ass, he is watching the digits in his bank account go ever higher.

  • Thom Allen

    Using “thinker” as a description of a member of the “GOP” is most often an oxymoron. Regrettably, he probably is one of the top thinkers, at least one of the top thinkers who manages to get air time.

    Also, any conservative college that offers a degree in “liberal arts” is outright lying. “Conservative arts” (certainly not “science”) would be more appropriate.

    Didn’t he get the message that the Republicons are trying t make nice with minorities, immigrants, etc.? Maybe he and some others didn’t quite get it. Like Sarah (Blacks are misinterpreting my use of the term “slavery”) Palin.

  • Thom Allen

    Considering the other Republicons in the pack (Perry, Gohmert, Bachmaniac, Palin, et al.), he IS an intellectual.

  • Buford Longshanks

    It is tragic that people turn the death of Trayvon into sometime of joke or punch line. Zimmerman has proven that he is an unstable angry (WELL ARMED) thug, who apparently has no problem beating on women, killing, etc. It won’t end well for him, but sadly, he will destroy a few more lives, before he is caged or put down, like the rabid dog that he is.

  • Buford Longshanks

    Actually, quite a few immigrants, particularly, Indians and Africans have a real issue with Black Americans. In their homelands, they were born and raised to think that Black Americans were lower and inferior, but when they get to America, they find that most Black Americans are well integrated into American society and have a huge impact on areas such as politics, entertainment, and culture in general. It’s funny to have to watch them deal with that stern Black woman at the DMV or that Black police officer.

  • Buford Longshanks

    Dinesh is a third-rate conservative, born in India and he wants to be a top tier conservative like Coulter, Beck, O’Reilly, etc. He lacks the oratory skills, quick wit, and White skin necessary, but he keeps trying……He has been around since the 90’s and has this strange disdain for Blacks.

  • http://hunteratrandom.blogspot.com/ rmthunter

    The Republicans’ problem is not that they’re desperate, but that Ryan, D’Souza, Coulter are the best they can do.

  • http://hunteratrandom.blogspot.com/ rmthunter

    Wow. I haven’t seen that much racial self-hatred since the last time I read something by Michelle Malkin. It’s quite obvious that, no matter how much D’Souza masks it in terms of Black Americans, he’s much too aware of the fact that he’s not white.

    The irony is that Dinesh is just another “brown person” to his party. Perhaps he’s so self-loathing because he’s seen as an outsider in his own circle. He doesn’t understand how other brown/black people can try to go against the “traditional” grain – like other Republican lapdogs.

  • http://www.americablog.com/ Naja pallida

    It’s so sad to see people like him, who don’t even realize that he himself is seen as a second-class Republican, by the rank and file – cum Teabagger. No matter how radical his positions are, he will never be considered an equal. He’ll be used for what little credibility and “diversity” he lends them, and then dumped all over the moment he steps out of the narrow little place they believe he should stay in. It’s sad, because by all measures he should be smart enough to know better, but his own hubris won’t let him see the forest for the trees.

    It’s some measure of how desperate the Republicans are to claim any one of their sort as an “intellectual” that men like D’Souza, or Paul Ryan for that matter, get propped up as serious thinkers. But the niche for a right-wing philosopher is there, needing to be filled, to give some credibility to the notion that it’s rightists who are the truly thoughtful and hard-harded men, not like woolly-headed liberals swayed by emotion and hippie-dippy ideas that don’t work in the real world.

    Trayvon Martin didn’t look like a lot of the people around him. From what we’ve learned he was a bright kid. He wasn’t perfect, by any means, but he seemed like a good kid all the same. He was hunted and killed by a man we now know to be a violent, entitled asshole who felt it was his right to impose his will on those around him. Seems like Dimass might have a point. Obama is a competent, if imperfect somewhat different president. He’s being hounded by self-anointed, entitled assholes who want the death of his administration.

    D’Souza has several go-to tactics for his race-baiting, and the particular dead horse he’s been flogging for the last few years is that of the ‘angry, violent black man.’ His book and the even more awful movie based on it is a constant refrain of ‘Obama is an angry black man and was raised to be such from his earliest childhood on. Fear him!’

    That’s D’Souza’s thing — to attempt to “thuggify” Obama, which not at all coincidentally was the defense strategy used in the Zimmerman murder case. To take Trayvon Martin — a kid who did sometimes get into a bit of trouble — and portray him as a dangerous, violent juvenile delinquent. Hence I’m sure the analogy came quite naturally to D’Souza.

    In posting the tweet however, he just forgot that people who aren’t foaming at the mouth racists also use Twitter.

    I don’t get the insult. We could have only hoped that Trayvon would have grown up to become an Ivy League educated man who aspired to public service. And we can only hope that Obama would have the humility to use his experiences as a young man to have empathy towards others who grew up in vaguely similar circumstances. The idea that either of them should be insulted by being conflated is idiotic. Just racist lunacy at its finest.

    He’s bizarrely nerdy and wierd plus being nonwhite and also Catholic/Christianist with an academic background. This all gives him an odd credibility as a unique voice for right wingers. He’s not only politically far right but even better socially (women, gays, races) far right. So he’s the nerdy Indian intellectual who believes exactly the same stuff uneducated uninformed rednecks do.

    The reason he’s that for them is because D’souza seems serious and intellectual, even as he’s spouting the most absurd and audibly dog-whistling racist nonsense. He’s the kind of guy who takes what the most radical of the reactionaries are thinking, amplifies it, and somehow makes bigotry seem perfectly reasonable.

    to call any of the rw cons thinkers is to insult intellectuals everywhere, reactionaries and haters is more appropriate and accurate, imo.
