Through D'Souza's trademark incisiveness, wit, and originality, United States of Socialism reveals how the Left uses the Venezuelan formula for socialism, decisively refutes this new face of socialism, chillingly documents the full range of the Left’s gangster tendencies, and provocatively exposes the tactics of the socialist Left.

    My comment is to inquire as to what your agenda truly is? You feed off of glittering generalities by using terms such as “America” or “Patriotic.” It would appear that you are doing this intentionally for some sort of self accomplishment. I recently listened to you on NPR and was amazed at some of the things you stated in regards to the current standing of this presidency. I’d like to recognize that you are in fact a very intelligent man, but you squander this gift to appeal to the masses of ignorant citizens that live in the United States. Effectively, you are one of the biggest trolls I’ve seen to date. Rather than turn everyone against one another, find a way to unite them. A man as smart as yourself should be able to make amends for the falsehoods you claim to be truth. I’d rather not get in to that because in all honesty, I’m not as informed as most people are. But, I do know a bullshitter when I see one, and you sir are the king of bullshitters. By now you’ve probably amassed quite the following and have obtained a surmountable wealth, but what good is all of that when nothing is being done to address the real issues of this economy. Economic inequality between the rich and the poor is tremendously high, and the vast majority of your followers are probably suffering from it. Do everyone a service and promote something that everyone can agree upon.

      Dino, what rock did you just climb out from under? I came from a extremely dysfunctional family and I succeeded from having nothing to being completely self sufficient without the help of the government; and having been excluded from all the handouts, and being discriminated against by every race, color, gender, and creed! I am still fighting a mental and spiritual war against the evil parasites that have made my life a living hell here in hell, and that includes all my government pensioned cousins who I regard as nothing but parasites. get a clue!

    I am trying to find out why I cannot comment about Dinesh’s uploads on Facebook. I guess his America is one in which you must agree with him or you are banned. Not my America! Shame on you, Dinesh.
