The End of D’Souza

The End of D'Souza

Writer Dinesh D’Souza has clearly removed himself from legitimate intellectual discourse with his breathtakingly logic-free cover story in Forbes magazine.  “How Obama Thinks” is simply beneath contempt.

D’Souza alleges President Obama has somehow inherited a “rage” against capitalism and Western civilization with “roots” in the (unverified) opinions of the president’s Kenyan father, whom he pictures as some kind of over-educated neo-Mau Mau. This despite the fact that Barack Obama never knew his father, and has written about that at length. This despite the fact that no one has isolated a genetic basis for “anti-colonial rage.”
