National Review: D’Souza Marches

Originally posted at the National Review by Jay Nordlinger.

Earlier today, I was thinking, “How long has Dinesh D’Souza been famous?” It’s been more than 30 years — since he was an intellectual and controversialist at Dartmouth. He has always marched to his own drummer, it seems to me, and he has become a best-selling author and fill-the-theaters filmmaker.

I recorded an interview with him a few hours ago, for Q&A. In the space of about 20 minutes, we covered a good number of subjects: What about Obama? What about Trump? What about higher ed? Should conservatives just throw in the towel? The Left kills us on “fairness,” right? Because we talk about freedom, which people don’t give a rat’s hiney about. (I exaggerate, a little.)

Dinesh and I also discuss his experience among prisoners, which was not an experience to be wished for, but which was by no means a total loss. Then we talk about India, Dinesh’s birthplace. The rise of this nation is a wonder and privilege to see.

After our taping, I commented that Dinesh has a remarkable gift (among others): He can speak in the most succinct, pithy, and even aphoristic way. He can say in a paragraph or two what it might take others pages to say, less well. And one always learns from D’Souza, or is challenged by him. Even if I were on the left, I think, I would want to hear him.

So, check him out. And please forgive the punny heading of this post.

    I agree Jay I felt the same way regarding the 2012 . I was in mourning for awhile. I didn’t think Romney was weak I felt even worse, I felt Romney “threw” the election he had so many good cards he did not use them, I felt disgust and unbelief. I enjoy D’Souza very much. Why doesn’t he run for President ! Wow wouldn’t that be great .. of course he can’t because he wasn’t born here.. hmm, that sounds familiar ;). D’Souza’s thinking on his prison experience, and how he turned it into a learning experience .. looking forward to the book. Might give others a clue on how to deal with this part of society.

    Love this man. When he speaks, you are forced to realize the truth that he speaks. I, too, wish this man could run for president!
    He is more devoted to America than the occupiers of the white house, one of whom registered as a foreign student from one of the many countries that he grew up in.
    Again, as I have said before, there is a reason why we have seen no education al records of our foreign born whiner-in-chief and social engineer. The only thing he is truly good at is agitation and dividing the country, AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZING.

    “We’ve sort of lost the country,”

    Pay attention to Ann Coulter. She is the only person with the balls to tell Republicans the only thing they need to hear: you are the party of White America and the only way you can win –till the demographics wholly kill the chance– is by getting out more of the White elecorate to vote. By talking to them precisely as Whites, as a future minority, who need .to assert their own interests. Cause the Democrats, both the PC Whites and the Colors, see you as Whites…which equals racist. You keep trying to please people who loathe you. 90% of Romney voters were White. Only Whites give a s**t about “conservative” values but you keep talking in code about “liberty” or “small government”, etc. But never talk to them as White men and women.

    But that is the last thing “cuckservatives” would let their terrorized souls imagine.

    My take on Trump is this. He is not a Republican,and, he will end up being an independent, so Hillary can win! He practically said that much at the debate. The Donald is not at all thin skinned, like he showed. I believe it is all an act to benefit the Democratic Party?

    I am a liberal and I enjoy listening to Dinesh and reading his books. I do so to polish my own debating skills, and to learn what points good conservatives are making to push their agenda. I don’t always agree with Dinesh’s arguments or his conclusions, but I don’t doubt his sincerity, wit, and intelligence.

    I also enjoy listening to Christopher Hitchens, George Galloway, Ricjphard Dawkins, and Sam Harris.
