Conservative commentator and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza compared the reaction following the death of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, MO, at the hands of a police officers to actions being committed by ISIS militants.

“The common thread between ISIS and what’s going in Ferguson is you have these people who basically believe that to correct a perceived injustice, it’s perfectly okay to inflict all types of new injustices,” D’Souza said on NewsmaxTV’s Steve Malzberg Show. “Behead guys who had nothing to do with it. Go and loot shops from business owners who were not part of the original problem whatsoever. And all of this is then licensed by the left and licensed to some degree by the media.”

    I would have compared it to Gaza. Note the child lying down symbolizing the dead man? Compare to the children dressed in suicide vests in Gaza. Note the similarity in the us vs. them narrative. Compare the similarity of the Stockholm syndrome both people live with. But most of all, note the 100% voting in 19 districts in Philadelphia. Not even Hamas gets those numbers! Note the Karim Abdul-Jabbar essay on “the coming race war?” Gee, thanks. Karim, by the way, was a “central” figure (pun intended) of the philosophy department of Los Angeles Lakers University. Why does the press pick up stuff like this? Because constant crisis sells news and news sells advertising time and column inches. It behooves the press to keep the kettle boiling for simple reasons of profitability and survival in a tough market. We should keep this in mind when reading them.

    The “Black” socio-political movement is creating an American archetype of Hamas. The civil rights issue has been hi-jacked by an extreme agenda that demands the “rich white man” to pay a price for every consequence they have foisted upon themselves. As they explode with anger and violence, endangering their own neighborhoods, they place children in the line of fire for the perceived, “greater good” of their cause. In the meantime our president has been a catalyst for the perfect storm, encouraging lawless behavior by his own example.

    Here we have the President and Attorney General saying it is necessary to rethink the government’s providing military type equipment to American police departments. Nowhere has it been reported that the Ferguson police officer used a weapon not otherwise standard police issue in the altercation with Mr. Brown. Isn’t t ironical that the President also refuses to provide military equipment to the Ukrainians to defend themselves against a Russian invasion of their country, annexation of their land and military support to a rebellion. The President seems to think that rioting, looting, arson and destruction of property does not warrant the police having equipment necessary to enforce the law, protect the public and safety of law enforcement officers.

    Pardon me for repeating you but it is a classic example of twisted thinking.

    Dinesh, it is very hard for me to even get angry at your comparison because it is such a childish conclusion. Let’s see. Let me try to play that stupid game.

    George W Bush went to war with Iraq because he imagined that they attacked the twin towers. What really happened was that he incited warriors all over the western world to play war games to the tune of about 750,000 dead. Meanwhile, commentators at Fox News (Which included Dinesh Disouza ranted and raved and attacked the presence of Holder and several religious figures (under the direction of President Obama) because they imagined that their presence “incited the mob” to destroy property in Ferguson business establishments. Therefore , it should be obvious to everybody that the commentators of Fox News and Dinesh Disouza display the same kind of thinking which culminated in the Iraq war and consequently their conclusions about the presence of these three gentlemen in Ferguson could not possibly have anything whatsoever to do with inciting the mob any more than that the Koch Brothers are hell bent on the goal of destroying destroying America. And oh by the way, all radical republicans think like that all of the time.

    Dinesh, you utilize very childish comparisons in trying to excuse the racist behavior of radical republicans in both your movie and in your editorials.

    Now explain to us again how we did not really steal the land from Native Americans and that white people in our country are not racists.

    Try doing it without tortured logic in your comparisons.

    Please!
