TheBlaze: D'Souza Says This Is the "Moral Disgrace of the Left"

Originally published at TheBlaze.

Author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, whose most recent film America is in theaters now, says the American left’s “romance for guerrilla terrorism” is its “moral disgrace.”

Speaking on The Glenn Beck Program Thursday about how radicals like Bill Ayers are able to find positions of respectability in academia, D’Souza remarked: “In academia, you can be a Bill Ayers, and it doesn’t count against you that you tried to blow up the Pentagon. In fact, it might even be a blessing because it makes you cool. You’re an interesting man and so on.”

“There is a romance for guerrilla terrorism on the left,” D’Souza continued. “It is seen as excessive passion for social justice that these guys put themselves on the line. I call it the ‘Che Guevara’ phenomenon. Che Guevara was a bloodthirsty revolutionary. He took pleasure in shooting people. … [Yet] this guy is on people’s t-shirts. Why?”

D’Souza said Guevara is on t-shirts because he represents “hope” and “change.”

“This is the moral disgrace of the American left, and it’s pervasive in the culture,” D’Souza said. “That’s how people like Bill Ayers can make that smooth transition from being a terrorist to being, essentially, a leading academic figure.”

    Mr. Ayers is a criminal and should be in jail! It saddens me that he is revered by some very foolish people, especially the young college age. My goodness, he bombed and killed people!

    Mr. D’Souza, how we do play our part to aid you in this battle? I’m a passionate man who loves our God and our country, I want to get out and help. I’m a deacon in the Methodist church and I work for a national men’s ministry, I really want to do more to save our country, our values, and our way of life for my children. What can we do to help you?

    I saw the message from the deacon in the Methodist church. I agree with him wholeheartedly. I was born during the Great Depression and learned as a child what a great country America is. Equal opportunity for all. We never envied “rich folks”. We were taught that if we work hard we would succeed. As folks immigrate, legally, to America they are here for that same opportunity. They tell me that in the countries they came from the people do not even understand what the word “Freedom” means. They say they actually had to experience Freedom themselves to understand just what it means. Finally,
    I am a Methodist and my church including the pastor are all hard left leaning.
    I am unhappy there and hope to find another place of worship that believes if the current government continues we will all suffer.

    It both frightens me and deeply disappoints me that so many are deceived by liberals’ lies and and faulty “reasoning”.
    I fear already that the country I grew up in is gone. I don’t recognize it anymore. Control over people and things is the order of things now. You can’t do this or smoke that; you ‘must’ accept the “new” method of thinking, etc. I wonder at this point if we can get our country back. Up is down, black is white; what was considered good is now socially unacceptable. Help!!

    “There is a romance for guerrilla terrorism on the left,” D’Souza continued. “It is seen as excessive passion for social justice that these guys put themselves on the line”. I assume Dinesh is talking about the Tea Party. (I mean the real Tea Party)
