What’s Obama’s beef against filmmaker and author Dinesh D’Souza?
1) He’s conservative
2) He’s outspoken
3) He’s donated money to the 2012 Senate campaign (over $20,000 worth)
4) In Obama’s eyes, that’s too much money
5) D’Souza has been critical of Obama in his books and films.
6) That makes Obama mad.
Obama’s indictment of D’Souza claims that he used straw donors for his campaign donations, and misreported it. Obama doesn’t like that.
Gerald Molen, the director of D’Souza’s film 2016: Obama’s America, believes the indictment is politically motivated.
“When American citizens begin to suspect that people are being arrested for alleged minor violations because of their vocal dissent against their elected representatives or rulers, it breeds disrespect and contempt for the law and suspicion of those officials,” he told the Reporter.
“In light of the recent events and the way the IRS has been used to stifle dissent, this arrest should send shivers down the spines of all freedom-loving Americans,” he said.
