And then there’s Dinesh D’Souza, with a festive Thanksgiving tweet.
I am thankful this week when I remember that American is big enough and great enough to survive Grown-Up Trayvon in the White House!
Great god almighty. What is wrong with people?
What’s wrong with Dinesh D’Souza is transparently obvious: He’s overflowing with hate. Hate is what drives his reactionary ideology, his full-time ultra-conservative activism, and his entire career. He makes a living off his hate: He hates the poor, the powerless, the disadvantaged, the oppressed — and he especially hates that damned n****** in the White House.
I sometimes feel more pity than anger at such people. It’s awful enough being occasionally exposed to such a bilious, repugnant, thoughtless hater. Imagine how horrible it must be to BE Dinesh D’Souza.

Jeezus h christ what the hell? What the HELL is in his head? I knew he was a self-satisfied big fat jerk but . . . I am stunned.
Again I call to the gods and goddesses WHERE IS SMITING WHEN IT IS NECESSARY?
Goodbye Enemy Janine says
There was more. Shortly after that tweet, he said something about the “feigned outrage” of the leftists in responce to that tweet.
And after that, he deleted both those tweets replaced them with a tweet about his “documentary” 2016.
And before that Trayvon Martin tweet, he proved that women are not the intellectual eual of men because there re separate categories for men and women in chess.
But when you get down to it, these are just the latest stupid actions of a man who has been publicly making stupid actions for thirty years.
Al Dente says
Okay, D’Souza, we got it that you’re a jerk who hates Obama and is happy Trayvon Martin was killed.
It amuses me that he apparently thinks the people he’s sucking up to somehow consider him as less of a nigger than Obama and Martin.
Does he really think the average Teabagger has any love for Indians or for that matter the Portugese?
It must really burn him up that George Zimmerman has been definitively revealed to be a “thug”, in his parlance.

I hadn’t heard anything from Dinesh for ages – felt like a whole year at least – and now this.
I can’t actually muster the words to describe how much I dislike (and would like to disown from my species) this pompous, racist, lackwitted, hateful, goddamned motherfucking stupid little cretinous pipsqueak.
I’m a pacifist and pretty much never been in a fight, much less started one, but just about every word this fucker says makes my fingers do that thing where they curl up into a little club-shaped thing – y’know, like they’re wringing an invisible sponge.
Wait, what? I don’t, I mean,…. What???

“Grown -up Trayvon?”
If only there could be.
If only a young African American teenager could have grown up and not been murdered in cold-blood by some racist scumbag who then got away – quite literally with murder.
A grown up Trayvon Martin would be about thrice the man Dinesh D’Souza seems to be.
President Obama isn’t a “grown up Trayon Martin”, he’s a grown up Barack Obama.*
I don’t know what Trayvon Martin would have become. President of the USA? Possible but unlikely.
A good bloke who could’ve made a lot of people happy and contributed a lot of good to the world? Quite probably.
The tragedy is that we will never know.
Because Trayvon was murdered and now this flippin’ douchebag is joking about it. How disgusting.
* Not that that’s a bad thing – I don’t agree with everything Obama has done, personally reckon Hiliary Rodham Clinton would have been the better choice but still. Obama is not the worst US president by a very long margin and has done a reasonable (& historically mould-breaking) job.

This is the kind of hateful bullshit that sets off my racism alarm and yet I still don’t even know WTF he was trying to say by posting it.
Also, I’m calling out all the racist asses who posted comments on the Huffington Post on an article about his tweet telling him to go back to India.

I doubt he knows himself. It’s probably dog whistles the whole way down.
Francisco Bacopa says
Over at “The Field Negro” blog they use the terms “house negro”, “lawn jockey”, and “slave catcher” to refer to black folks who pander to white racism. I have proposed using the term “Serena Joy” borrowed from The Handmaid’s Tale to refer to women who become popular by attacking other women. But what do you call an Indian guy who uses his brownness to dis almost everybody?
Francisco Bacopa says
Oh, and Obama is a grown up Trayvon Martin> Since a lot of wingnuts think Martin deserved being shot seems like Dinesh is saying Obama should be shot.
I gotta give my props to the Secret Service. Yes there have been a few public threats and arrests, but Obama is still alive. The Secret Service is a good example of an effective counter-terrorist force. DHS has made the FBI its puppet and they boast all the time about fake shit. Meanwhile the Secret Service has probably thwarted 50 plots that we do not know about. Effective counter-terrorist forces do not boast of their successes. They are in the business of creating abstract non-events.

“survive Grown-Up Trayvon”
So he thinks that Zimmerman was right to pull a gun and shoot a boy of 17 (black, hoodie, young, male — obviously “suspicious”)? Overwhelming threat, of course, even when it was Z. who had the gun. Zimmerman should be locked up for ever and D’Souza should be shunned by every decent human being.
