D’Souza Sells Fake Christmas Trees

Times must be hard for Dinesh D’Souza now that he’s lost his $1 million a year job as president of King’s College after being caught having an affair. He’s now hawking fake Christmas trees on his website. Don’t worry, Dinesh, the Lord will provide.

    Elegant fellow.

    Perfect match. The trees are as fake as the man.

  • demonhauntedworld

    It makes Christmas “easy”? One would think D’Souza would be opposed to anything that allows people to put only a minimum amount of effort into Christmas.

    D’Souza tweets last week:

    https://twitter.com/dineshdsouza/status/403936830560555008

    And there is this gem that he has deleted since posting:

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-partisan/wp/2013/11/26/dinesh-dsouza-and-his-vile-trayvon-tweet/

    I guess the tweets are part of his Christianist rehabilitation. If he can show them he’s still a racist and a misogynist, they might be able to overlook his affair with a young groupie.

    Effing things are nearly $700!

  • daved

    $700? Wow, and I thought the Martha Stewart tree I bought (my arm was metaphorically twisted) at Home Depot a couple of years back was expensive (and it was less than $200).

    However, I despite D’Souza so much that I wouldn’t buy the tree even if it only cost $30. It still galls me that the little twit went to the same college I did.

    By the way, why is he not looking into the camera? And how is it that he says he doesn’t endorse products in this ad, in which he is endorsing a product?

  • Cal

    Is it just me or does he look and sound like a slightly darker version of Glenn Beck? I can’t unsee it and it is creeping me out…

  • Al Dente

    I bought a fake tree which looks remarkably like the one D’Souza is pushing for about $75 last year.

  • himurastewie

    And don’t forget to buy some of his books after saving that $50. I wonder if that could be written off as a charitable deduction..

  • marcus

    That would be fake Holiday tree. Remember, there’s a war on FFS!

  • http://polrant@blogspot.com democommie

    If it was a REAL tree it would have fucking woodsprites or pixies or something living in it and it would have to be exorcised before it was brought into the house. Oh, wait, it’s Bobby Pi Jindal who’s the exorcising Indian. I get them mixed up sometimes. They all look alike to me–Batshit KKKrazzeepants KKKonservatives, I mean.

    Finally, a product to take the drudgery out of setting up a Christmas tree. Why, I can’t count the minutes and minutes I’ve wasted on family traditions like that!

    Thank you and your wonderful product, Dinesh D’souza. Now I can spend even more time with my relatives, you monster.

    Give it time folks, give it time. Dinesh D’Souza will not be allowed to starve. The right has a very plush safety net for those who play for their team, how do you think little Dinesh got the King’s college gig. Yes, he will have to pay a penance and be forced to do some actual labor, in this case hawking fake trees, to show how he is deeply hurt by his transgressions but none of this will be allowed to become so serious as to hurt his bank accounts or long term job prospects.

    They will let him swing in the wind for a month, then start getting him lucrative spots on the Sunday talk shows to rehabilitate his image, and, just a short time later, a well paid spot at a think tank, or perhaps another position at a prestigious center of learning, complete with a generous six-figure salary and comprehensive benefits package of course, will magically become available.

    No, little Dinesh will never be made to suffer. A slap on the wrist, a show of contrition, and it will be all onward and upward again. The whole sad affair will disappear down the memory hole. On the right there can never be consequences for being wrong or indulging in the very sins they perpetually inveigh against, It would be bad for the morale of the group-think set.

    Lorn;

    You’re a cynic after a my own heart.

  • http://almosteverythingsucks.wordpress.com Hankstar [Antipodean Antagony Aunt]

    Pfft. Some conservative Christian – look at him, filling his house with Euro-pagan artifacts. I don’t see a crucifix in his McMansion. Did he even mention Jesus? When did it become all about plastic trees and chintzy decorations? Why is Dinesh such a bad Christian?

    Mathew 6:26

    “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? ”

    was that the verse you were thinking of Ed?

    or perhaps, in Mr ‘Souza’s case:

    Luke 12: 1-7

    “1. …. Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. 2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. 3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops. 4 And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. 5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him. 6 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? 7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows”.

    Helpfully, Dingo

    “Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings”

    But how much is that in REAL money, y’know, Shekels?

    Demo – basd on the historical value of gold at the time of the writing of the KJV (₤4 2/ 6d per Troy oz.), the mass of a Shekel in Biblical times (0.3646 Troy oz.)*, two farthings would be worth about 1.385218 x 10^-3 Shekels.

    Since you asked.

    Dingo

    ——–

    * Hence one Shekel ≈ ₤1 10/ 1d (The average wage in England in 1605 would be about 5.95755 Biblical Shekels p.a, enough to buy about 14298 sparrows).

    Wait a sec, his pernicious implication aside, why is there a separate chess championship for women?

  • tbp1

    Even if I were in the market for a fake Christmas tree, which I’m not, the fact the D’Souza is hawking it would take it right off my list.

  • http://www.pixelated-reality.com Alareth

    I’m at a complete loss as to why the bottom half of the tree flipping upside down is in any way beneficial.

  • Trebuchet

    @23: You flip it over and the branches fold themselves so you can put the cover on and roll it away. Fairly clever, but probably solving such a minor problem that it’s not worth paying for the solution. I personally would favor Scott Adams’ solution: A tree on wheels that you roll away into a special closet, fully decorated, and roll out again next year.
