Dinesh D’Souza Compares Self To MLK Like A Freakin’ Jerk
Dinesh D’Souza, disgraced conservative writer and filmmaker, took to Twitter on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, to compare himself to the civil rights leader.
What he’s referring to are the charges brought against him for making illegal campaign contributions, to which he pled guilty in September. I guess being indicted on federal charges because you broke the law means you’ve been “targeted” by the president?
D’Souza’s 2012 film, 2016: Obama’s America, painted President Obama as an anti-western beast who sought to reduce America’s influence around the world. There’s little evidence that Obama has spent any time of his own thinking about, let alone targeting, D’Souza.
Reactions from the nation’s rational came swiftly on Twitter:
The hashtag “#aninterestingparallel” now features individuals making equally ridiculous parallels, mostly at the expense of D’Souza himself.
Adding my own: MLK encouraged the passage of the Voting Rights Act. Dinesh D’Souza is a huge assclown. #aninterestingparallel
