PostSubject: Favorite Wingnut Fairy Tale "2016: Obama’s America" Gets Destroyed by Bill Maher   9/1/2012, 7:20 pm

I'm sure most of you are aware that the wingnut crowd has been jerking off non-stop since this opinion piece trash,disguised as a documentary, hit the theaters recently. Hmmm..just found out that this piece of garbage was partially financed by Cubs Owner Joe Ricketts. Evil or Very Mad Bill Maher had the guy who stars and co-directed it on his show last night and carved him up like a Christmas goose.

For some reason It won't embed Sad but you can watch it at the link....
Bill Maher Takes Apart Dinesh D’Souza Over His Fearmongering Film
Author and fearmongering filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza appeared on this Friday evening's Real Time with Bill Maher and had his latest film, 2016: Obama’s America, and the justifications for his depiction of President Obama taken apart one by one by Maher.

Whether it was D'Souza pretending that President Obama didn't reach out to Republicans on their health care bill, when as Maher rightfully pointed out, it was Bob Dole's plan from the '90's, trying to blame the President for the gridlock in Washington rather than Republican obstruction designed to make sure President Obama is not reelected, to pretending that President Obama did anything much differently than other presidents when it came to stimulus, regulating industry or that he's somehow anti-capitalist, D'Souza just was no match for Maher.

We've been down this road before here at C&L with a critique of D'Souza's work, so anyone not already familiar with him might want to go back and read this post -- Doing the Right Wing Limbo – How Low Can They Go?.
Maher did a pretty good job with D'Souza if he's going to allow someone like him who traffics in lies on his show in the first place. I still think the most brutal interview I've seen with him was Cenk Uygur from earlier this month which you can watch here -- Cenk Uygur Destroys Anti-Obama Author Dinesh D’Souza.

It interesting how much hatred conservatives have for Michael Moore at the same time they quickly embrace his conservative counterpart. And wow... that bit at the end was hilarious.

Here's a pretty funny review of this movie:

Quote :
Dinesh D'Souza's "2016: Obama's America": The Five Most Hilarious Lowlights

For what it's worth, his thesis concerns the reasons Obama returned a bust of Winston Churchill to the British Embassy early in his presidency. The only answer D'Souza entertains: that Obama is a Mau Mau anticolonial revolutionary driven to impress his dead, absentee father, a Kenyan who dared to write in 1965—two years after his homeland achieved its independence—that government regulation might sometimes be needed to rein in private industry. You might object, "But Obama has spent almost zero percent of his life with that father, and something like 75 percent of his life in the same private schools and Ivy League universities and institutions of power occupied by every other president of either party in recent American history." D'Souza's counter is to brandish Obama's memoir and proclaim, "Notice it says Dreams From My Father, not Dreams of My Father." Also: Bill Ayers! Jeremiah Wright! Edward Said, who once taught a class Obama took! NYU psychology professor Paul Vitz shows up to explain that the father who abandons a boy has a profound influence on the shaping of that boy, an argument that lays bare D'Souza's debased rules of evidence: the fact that Obama senior was never around to radicalize Obama junior only proves that he did radicalize Obama junior. That explains why junior later went on to fulfill the dream of all Kenyan revolutionaries of the 1960s: passing the health care plan Republicans came up with in the '90s.

. . .

Still, the film is a sleepy dud, a polemic that, like D'Souza himself, is at once both outrageous and deeply boring. Mostly well shot, it makes Michael Moore's films look cheap by comparison, but Moore at least dares some adversarial interviews, and he bothers to chart a connection between government policy, corporate decision making, and the lives of actual people.

Via Ed Brayton:

Quote :
You almost have to feel sorry for the wingnuts. They face such a difficult choice in deciding which crazy conspiracy theory to believe. Is Obama really an “anti-colonialist” out to destroy America like his father, Barack Obama Sr.? Or is he a communist out to destroy America like his real father, Frank Marshall Davis (or Malcolm X, or…)?

And the newest conspiracy in question:

Quote :
DREAMS FROM OBAMA'S REAL FATHER

Movie director Joel Gilbert concludes his revelatory movie about President Barack Obama with this telling statement: “The ‘Birthers’ have been on a fool’s errand. To understand Obama’s plans for America, the question is not ‘Where’s the Birth Certificate?’; the question is ‘Who is the real father?’” Gilbert’s film “Dreams from My Real Father” unites together the confirmed facts with consistent logic and supposition in an effort to fill in the apparent gaps in Obama’s history. If Gilbert’s movie is to be believed, then Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary “2016,” which is currently all the rage, is a giant step backwards in deducing the real truth about Obama’s origins – for it embraces the belief that Barack Obama Sr. was Obama’s true father, which Gilbert proves to be a tragic lie. Barack Obama and his true agenda for “fundamentally transforming America” can be fully comprehended only if we understand that it was not Obama Sr. who was his real father but the black communist from Chicago transported to Hawaii, Frank Marshall Davis.

Gilbert’s movie systematically analyzes the undeniable historical fact that “by age 18, Barack Obama admittedly arrived at Occidental College a committed revolutionary Marxist.” Obama never rejected or recanted his original Marxist, communist and socialist propaganda he was indoctrinated in from age 10-18 by his real father, Frank Marshall Davis. Throughout his 2008 presidential campaign and subsequent term in office, the Democratic socialist press scrupulously ignored questions raised about Barack Obama’s family history, personal associations, economic philosophy and fundamental political worldview.

GOP 2012! 'Cause we're totally not crazy and shit.

Dinesh D’Souza Resigns Presidency of The King’s College
Quote :
Amid scandal over his engagement to a much younger woman and dissatisfaction with his tenure as president, the conservative author and filmmaker is leaving his position at The King’s College.
by David Sessions | October 18, 2012 12:16 PM EDT

After a marathon meeting to decide his fate, the board of trustees of The King’s College, a small evangelical school based in Manhattan, announced Thursday that conservative author Dinesh D’Souza had resigned as president. Former president and current chairman Andy Mills, who made the announcement to faculty and staff, will return as interim president for a third time.

"God has a mighty future for Dinesh, but there are some things he has to go through first," Mills said after breaking the news to King's students Thursday afternoon. "I have to admit, I got a bit over-enamored with him." Mills assured students that most of the college's funding and scholarships come from board members, not from D'Souza's connections.

D’Souza came under fire Tuesday when World magazine revealed that he was engaged to a 29-year-old woman while still married to his wife of 20 years. D’Souza and Denise Odie Joseph allegedly shared a hotel room at a Christian conference in September, and D’Souza introduced her as his fiancee.

It was not immediately clear whether the board’s decision was driven by the allegations of the affair, or by dissatisfaction with D’Souza’s leadership that had been building at the college for months. At the meeting Thursday, Mills did not give details of the board's conversation about D’Souza or give reasons for his departure. Representatives for the college did not respond to requests for comment.

Another storybook ending for a holier than thou wingnut Very Happy

Carnival Barker Trump vs Bill Maher
First a little background....
Trump suing Maher over 'birther' bet 'He promised me $5 million for charity if I provided certain information'
Quote :
(POLITICO) Donald Trump said Monday that he’s suing liberal comic Bill Maher for $5 million for charity because Maher did not follow through on a public bet he made on “The Tonight Show.”

“He promised me $5 million for charity if I provided certain information,” Trump said Monday on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.” “Well I provided the information. He didn’t pay. So today I sue Bill Maher for $5 million for charity.”

Last month, Maher said on NBC to Jay Leno that he would pay $5 million to Trump’s charity of choice if he provided a birth certificate proving that he’s not “spawn of his mother having sex with orangutan.” It was similar to an offer Trump made to President Barack Obama during the presidential campaign season, in which Trump wanted Obama to release his college records
Last night in response on his HBO show Maher ripped him a new one and it's hilarious...

The only thing Trump will have ended up accomplishing is helping to spike Maher's HBO ratings once this video gets picked up by the media Very Happy

Another happy ending for a right-wing fairy tale...
Dinesh D'Souza pleads guilty to campaign finance fraud, may receive jail time
Quote :
A very strange political scandal that burbled out of a very obscure race looks like it'll end in jail time for the perpetrator. Conservative writer Dinesh D'Souza has pleaded guilty to charges that he asked two associates to donate $10,000 to the Senate campaign of New York Republican Wendy Long, then illegally reimbursed them. D'Souza has also agreed not to contest any prison term between 10 and 16 months, though he won't be sentenced until Sept. 23, and it sounds like he's still hoping to avoid jail time:
Quote :

   His attorney, Benjamin Brafman, said in a statement immediately after the plea that he was hopeful that the judge "will recognize Mr. D'Souza to be a fundamentally honorable man who should not be imprisoned for what was an isolated instance of wrongdoing in an otherwise productive life."

Oh yeah, buddy.

What made this whole thing so bizarre, though, was that Long had absolutely no chance of defeating Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who demolished her by a 72-26 margin. So of all the elections to do something this stupid for, this was the stupidest. (Long was apparently a college bud of D'Souza's, back in his infamous Dartmouth Review days. Blech.) And in this day and age, if you want to circumvent campaign finance limits, that's why the Supreme Court invented Citizens United, so this just makes D'Souza even dumber—and that's pretty remarkable.

One thing we still don't know, though, is who dropped the dime on D'Souza. It's possible it was his estranged wife, Dixie, who rather oddly also donated to Long but wasn't named by prosecutors as one of D'Souza's straw donors. (However, Denise Joseph, the woman he left his wife for, was.) We may never find out, but if D'Souza doesn't already know himself, it looks like he'll have plenty of time to contemplate it.
Another one of Sean Hannity's phony "victims" much like Cliven Bundy goes down in flames
