They both broke the law. Uh, that’s about it. Martin Luther King, Jr. broke segregation laws to convey injustice. Dinesh D’Sousa pleaded guilty to a felony: using straw donors to enrich a candidate. [su_center_ad]

    Now that’s arrogance.

    Do not worry that was his first step, wait till Easter he will compare himself equal to Christ!

      another law breaker who received the death penalty.

      In fact, this country was founded by lawbreakers (traitors to the crown). The dominant religion is centered around a man who was considered a criminal.

      But having said all that, D Souza is out of his friggin mind if he thinks that being convicted of fraud is in any way equivalent to the “crime” of defying Jim Crow laws.

      Whether 2,000 years in the past, or 2,000 years in the future, I suspect fraud will always be a criminal act. So D Souza, stop your insufferable whining. Do the crime, do the time. That’s what you tell poor folks in the inner city, so man up and take what you have been dishing out.

    Right wing sub humans have to try and cheapen the legacy of civil rights icons, because they have no one their side that can talk about what they did during the civil rights movement of the 1960’s. They can’t even talk about what anyone in the family did during those days. Right wingers are always on the wrong side of history.

    • bluejayray January 19th, 2015 at 2:41 pm

      They usually go back to Abe Lincoln–who was a Republican then but certainly wouldn’t be one today.

  4. Obewon January 19th, 2015 at 2:26 pm

    Unlike the well known Dr. King whose life and accomplishments celebrate today, not many have heard of delusional confessed felon D’Souza, a self-proven pathological liar.

    • bluejayray January 19th, 2015 at 2:40 pm

      I certainly wouldn’t follow him over a bridge–to ANYWHERE. He really needs to be serving time in a real prison and maybe working in the laundry for cigaret and soap money.

      • Obewon January 19th, 2015 at 3:02 pm

        D’Souza’s 8 month nightly sentence to sleep with felony child molesters is a step up from his usual GOP co-conspirator straw campaign “(R-NY) Wendy Long” donors who lost by the biggest majority in NY state!

        Senator Gillibrand was re-elected with 72% of the vote, by a margin of 45.2%, the highest margin for any statewide candidate in New York.

        • allison1050 January 20th, 2015 at 5:17 am

          Wait damned minute! You’re saying that this sob only spent nights in prison??? I hadn’t realized that.

          • Obewon January 20th, 2015 at 8:04 am

            The judge sentenced D’Souza to 8 months of nightly sleepovers in a halfway-house. That’s why he joined the many FNC broadcasting felons, during his sentence…

            Different rules

    It is nauseating how right wingers attempt to wrap themselves in the legacy of Dr. King. If the man were alive today, I have no doubt that these same right wingers would be denouncing him as some kind of anti American socialist.

    Dr. King believed in a federally guaranteed minimum income, and was murdered while supporting the strike of UNIONIZED sanitation workers.

    Then there is this speech he gave in 1967, which I am sure would cause hissy fits on the right if anybody today said the same thing. Conservatives opposed and still oppose most of what Dr. King believed in, now they try to lay claim to the transformation he effected in America.

    I don’t know whether to swear or throw up, or both (but not simultaneously)

    As I have walked among the desperate, rejected, and angry young men, I have told them that Molotov cocktails and rifles would not solve their problems. I have tried to offer them my deepest compassion while maintaining my conviction that social change comes most meaningfully through nonviolent action. But they ask — and rightly so — what about Vietnam? They ask if our own nation wasn’t using massive doses of violence to solve its problems, to bring about the changes it wanted. Their questions hit home, and I knew that I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today — my own government.

      If King were alive today..
      The right would be calling him a “race hustler”..

  6. bluejayray January 19th, 2015 at 2:38 pm

    Isn’t he supposed to shut up and take a time out? I hope he pisses off the judge who sentenced him. This guy needs a little lesson in humility and consequences.

  7. Hirightnow January 19th, 2015 at 2:50 pm

    I sorta wish he was like Dr. King in one aspect…

    • StoneyCurtisll January 19th, 2015 at 5:43 pm

      I know where ya are going with that~!

    AN INTERESTING PARALLEL: Dinesh D’Souza wrote a best-selling book. Adolf Hitler wrote a best-selling book.

    Don’t flatter yourself. You’re just not that important.

    • tiredoftea January 19th, 2015 at 5:06 pm

      True enough, and it was Preet Bharara, the US Attorney who prosecuted him, not the usurping Kenyan pretender.

  11. Bunya January 19th, 2015 at 3:16 pm

    His narcissism knows no bounds. Next thing you know, he’ll be proclaiming himself to be the alpha and the omega. The smug little twit.

  12. liberalMD January 19th, 2015 at 3:44 pm

    He also must be the product of Mahatma Ghandi and Mother Theresa. His altered ego is responsible for what and where he is today.

    • tiredoftea January 19th, 2015 at 5:08 pm

      My guess is that he aims higher, Mary and Joseph, if he were pressed to mention his parents.

    Classic example of a self-proclaimed martyr’s non-equivalence:
    MLK’s “Dream” vs. D’Souza’s “wet dream”.

  14. StoneyCurtisll January 19th, 2015 at 5:48 pm

    Dinesh D’Sousa comparing himself in anyway to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has to be the most disgusting thing I have heard in long time.

    We’re like 3 peas in a pod!”

    They are almost like twins! They are both non-white and… and… c’mon, help me out here… and they both have names and… they are both male and…both probably wore shoes and…

    I didn’t realize that Dinesh was also a comedian! Why didn’t anyone tell me?
