Dinesh D’Souza, political commentator and author, is under fire this week from the Obama Administration. Federal prosecutors last week announced formal charges against D’Souza. Gerald Molen, Oscar-winning producer believes his colleague and conservative filmmaker is a target of the Obama Administration for D’Souza’s film 2016: Obama’s America.
“I’m taken aback by the whole thing,” Molen told Newsmax interviewer Steve Malzberg on Monday. “He’s such a great American.”
Molen went on to say that these charges are strange and far afield. Molen stated, ” I really believe that this case with Dinesh that somebody is going to wake up and this is going to be dismissed.
Ted Cruz ended his Sunday interview on Face the Nation by highlighting the D’Souza case. “We’ve seen multiple filmmakers prosecuted and the government’s gone after them,” he said. “Whether it’s the poor fellow that did the film that the president blamed Benghazi and the terrorist attacks on—turns out that wasn’t the reason for the attack but the administration went and put that poor fellow in jail on unrelated charges…Can you image the reaction if the Bush administration had went, gone and prosecuted Michael Moore and Alec Baldwin and Sean Penn?”
CBS initially cut Cruz’s theory out of the interview. The senator’s office threw the whole thing online. By Monday afternoon the Drudge Report was linking to Cruz’s truth-bomb, and the network was denying any bias in the edit room. D’Souza was tweeting it, beseeching readers to “watch Bob Schieffer’s reaction,” without specifying which body language would make the theory true.
It should be now well clear to the American populace that this administration will use all means necessary to quash political speech or opposing speech be it mainstream media censorship, the IRS, Department of Justice or an array of other tools at this administration’s disposal.
