Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza says Sen. Charles Schumer’s comment that the Affordable Care Act should never have been passed shows that the Democrats are finally realizing how President Barack Obama has dragged down their party.
“What’s really happening is the Democrats are beginning to discover that they have [what] I call the millstone presidency on their hands,” D’Souza said Monday on The Steve Malzberg Show on Newsmax TV.
“For a while there, Obama was like the pied piper. He would jauntily take them up the street and down that street and everybody would merrily follow him and there was no one else to follow.”
“Now, they’re beginning to realize that he’s, in a sense, a big millstone around their necks… I find it amusing that GQ magazine recently named Obama one of the least influential people of 2014. I disagree with that because Obama has been influential in dragging his own party down.”
In September, D’Souza was sentenced to eight months of community service and five years of probation after pleading guilty to charges of using straw donors to support the New York Senate campaign of a longtime friend, Wendy Long.
D’Souza, creator of the documentary 2016: Obama’s America, which was critical of the commander-in-chief, has maintained he was targeted by the Obama administration for his political beliefs.
He told Steve Malzberg that the racial unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, is partly the fault of the Obama administration.
“They have been sending their race hustlers into Ferguson to stir the pot. This is an old formula that goes back to Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. In other words, if race isn’t really what it would appear in America, those guys would completely be out of a job,” D’Souza said.
“They have perfected the art of manufacturing racial resentment. Even when there really shouldn’t be any … The conversion of this episode into a racial incident is entirely the making of agitators and of the Obama administration.”
