In the seemingly endless competition among right wing pundits and leaders to make the most ludicrous and offensive comparisons between Obama and horrible things, Dinesh D’Souza may have jumped into the lead. He explained to Newsmax how Obama and Holder’s actions regarding the situation in Ferguson are just like what ISIS is doing in Iraq.
D’Souza accused President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton of undermining the justice system by “fostering an atmosphere in Ferguson that basically goes ‘let’s declare that this guy is probably guilty and let’s see what we can do to put him up against the wall.’ The idea that he would get impartial justice is becoming highly questionable.”
Declaring that, historically, it was black people who were denied equal justice under the law, D’Souza said that now we are seeing “a complete flip” so that now white people cannot get justice under President Obama and America is just “going from one set of injustices to another.”
That somehow led D’Souza to claim that there is “a common thread between ISIS and what’s going on in Ferguson” because, in both situations, people are seeking to correct a perceived injustice by inflicting a whole host of new injustices “and all of this is then licensed by the Left and licensed, to some degree, by the media.”
What, no Hitler comparison? I’m disappointed.
