"Pardon Me"

Trump's first pardon was fellow racist birther Joe Arpaio.

Now it's Dinesh D’Souza. Hold your nose, the stench is about to engulf the room. No wonder Trump and the alt-Right love the guy.


“Hitler was NOT anti-gay. He refused to purge gay Brownshirts from Nazi ranks saying he had no problem as long as they were good fighters.”

(What's this? No history classes required for our guy who knows Hitler was a liberal. Hitler had a gay Brownshirt leader killed in “Night of the Long Knives. Gays were force to wear pink triangles in concentration camps.

His compassionate con-servatism for Parkland school shooting survivors was exhibited when they supported of a failed attempt to ban assault rifles.) 

“Worst news since their parents told them to get summer jobs,”

Charlottesville rally “staged”: “The white supremacist leader of this group is an Obama guy and an Occupy Wall Street guy, so right away you know that this could be a sort of staged Nazism that we’re seeing for the benefit of serving a narrative.”

On Obama: “YOU CAN TAKE THE BOY OUT OF THE GHETTO...Watch this vulgar man show his stuff, while America cowers in embarrassment”

“I am thankful this week when I remember that America is big enough and great enough to survive Grown-Up Trayvon in the White House!”

D’Souza shared a meme of Obama holding a sign that calls himself a “gay Muslim” and suggested that former first lady Michelle Obama is a man.

“OVERRATED DEMOCRATS DEPT: So Rosa Parks wouldn't sit in the back of the bus--that's all she did, so what's the big fuss?”

(Only stupid democrats thought Rosa Parks was special, amirite?

Vox has the sordid racist history of the sordid racist bigot.)

D'Souza first came to prominence as a student at Dartmouth (he graduated in 1983), where he was one of the first editors of the Dartmouth Review, a still-extant conservative campus publication. During his time there, the Review:

Published an interview with a Ku Klux Klan leader accompanied by a "doctored photo of a black student being lynched on campus." This spurred then-Rep. Jack Kemp (R-NY) to resign from the publication's board.

Ran an anti-affirmative action article written entirely in ebonics and headlined, "Dis Sho Ain't No Jive, Bro."

Posted a list of members of the campus Gay Straight Alliance, some of whom were still closeted.

(For some reason, nobody loves to deny and downplay racism like racists love to deny and downplay racism. Unless they want to blame and accuse liberals of racism, obviously. 

D’Souza assures conservatives there’s no racism in slavery, and segregation was just the Southern White Conservative rulers’ way of protecting Blacks. And of course, the Civil Rights Act needs to go.)

The End of Racism (1995) was considerably more incendiary. Here are a few lines from the book:

"Was slavery a racist institution? No. Slavery was practiced for thousands of years in virtually all societies … Thus slavery is neither distinctively Western nor racist."

"In summary, the American slave was treated like property, which is to say, pretty well."

"Am I calling for a repeal of the Civil Rights Act of 1964? Actually, yes. The law should be changed so that its nondiscrimination provisions apply only to the government."

"Segregation … represented a compromise on the part of the Southern ruling elite seeking, in part, to protect blacks." [Emphasis D'Souza's.]

"If racism is not the main problem for blacks, what is? Liberal antiracism."

"Racism originated not in ignorance and fear but as part of an enlightened enterprise of intellectual discovery."

"The civil rights establishment has a vested interest in the persistence of the underclass."

"The main contemporary obstacle facing African Americans is neither white racism, as many liberals claim, nor black genetic deficiency, as Charles Murray and others imply. Rather it involves destructive and pathological cultural patterns of behavior: excessive reliance on government, conspiratorial paranoia about racism, a resistance to academic achievement as 'acting white,' a celebration of the criminal and outlaw as authentically black, and the normalization of illegitimacy and dependency."


Presto! The end of racism! 

Just don’t call these vile bigots racists. They are the “real victims” of injustice.

The good news is it looks like we found Roseanne’s soulmate, folks.

Ex Con,

Obviously this is corruption and abuse of power intended to obstruct justice.

Legal analyst Seth Waxman told CNN’s Stephanie Ruhle:

Could this be any more transparent? His fixer for ten years is alleged to be involved in passing campaign contributions from others through to his campaign in the context of Stormy Daniels or passing Russian funds through, and then kind of out of nowhere, Mr. Trump pardons D’souza who is accused of doing just that. I can’t see this as anything other than trying to send information–Donald Trump to say “I will take care of you in the future, just stand by me.”

I agree wholeheartedly,

Anytime he pardons somebody, you know what he is up to, and it has nothing to do with justice.
This guy and his party stink to high heaven, it's so obvious, and yet so many people still can't figure it out.It sure would help if we had any type of investigative, subjective mainstream media.

On a related note, I was watching Morning Joe this morning(obviously), and although they are very critical of Trump on the show, even Joe falls into the "Conservatives are held to a different standard" BS...the same "liberal media" CRAP that the right has been spouting about for thirty some years.

Hell, even NPR has gone corporate for the most part, after decades of right wing whining about their liberal bias, and the fact that they receive some government funding(God forbid.) What a mess.

I'm so pissed with the media right now. They keep giving that fool so many passes. Most of my news is from Sirius XM. The mainstream media has too many Republicons on it nowadays and their lies are never confronted. I'm almost to the point of watching only The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and The Opposition with Jordan Klepper. If one doesn't get a laugh from all of this bullshit now and then they'd cry. The Opposition had a hilarious skit the other night associating Trump with a big pardon, not a hard-on.
