Dinesh D’Souza continues to say idiotic things about Barack Obama. He appeared on a radio show with Phyllis Schlafly and said that Obama doesn’t really care about civil rights for black people because he’s not really one of them and has never experienced discrimination. Also notice that the caller equates civil rights with being anti-white and anti-Western:
Caller: I got a question. Isn’t Obama’s thinking a product of civil rights…anti-white, anti-Western pro-equality? Isn’t Obama’s thinking actually civil rights philosophy?
D’Souza: That’s a good question, and I used to think so but I think the answer I have to give you now is no. Remember that Obama, I mean Obama yes he’s the first black, African American president, but he hasn’t had the African American experience. And by that I mean he’s never sat at a segregated lunch counter. He’s not even descended from anyone who has. He’s not descended from slaves. His father was, well I’m tempted to say an immigrant, but he wasn’t even an immigrant, I’m an immigrant, you know immigrants come to this country to stay. Barack Obama, Sr. came to America to study and go back home and he did. So, his father’s a Kenyan, his mom is a white girl from Kansas, you know, where’s the African American part?…
D’Souza: So what’s kind of strange is that a lot of African Americans say well I’m for Obama because he’s like me and so on, not realizing that first of all, Obama you know has had no interest in so-called civil rights or black issues, and second of his policies have actually been very harmful, economically harmful to be sure, for Black America.
Remember when Obama was first nominated? He was derided as merely a “community organizer” — that is, a civil rights activist — pushing the Black Liberation Theology agenda of Rev. Wright. Now suddenly he’s anti-civil rights and not really black. Hey, whatever it takes.
