Judge Denies D’Souza’s Request for Summer Vacation

Dinesh D’Souza’s stay in a halfway house is over, but he still has to do community service, which he’s been doing at a Catholic high school (I really hope it’s as a janitor, but I’m sure it’s not). But since that school is getting out for the summer, he thinks he should get a vacation too. The judge in his case harshly slapped down that request:

But when the school let out for the summer, instead of finding an alternative means of performing community service, D’Souza had his parole officer petition the court for a “summer break.” Berman wouldn’t hear of it, writing that “with respect to [the] request that Mr. D’Souza’s community service hours be ‘waived’ from June 1, 2015 until July 13, 2015, the request is respectfully denied.”

“The short explanation is,” Berman continued, “as all criminal defendants are aware, that we don’t provide ‘summer breaks’ in these circumstances.” He noted that there are other “appropriate venue[s] for community service in San Diego” and strongly encouraged D’Souza to locate one of them and fulfill the terms of his parole immediately.

As to the copy of a Vanity Fair article that D’Souza’s parole officer had, for some reason, included in the request, Berman would only say that “the court has no immediate reaction other than the article suggests several fertile areas of discussion during Mr. D’Souza’s required therapeutic counseling.”

BOOM! This obviously means that Judge Berman is all part of the grand conspiracy to silence and censor D’Souza, at the request of President Obama. I bet the judge is a secret Kenyan Muslim anti-colonialist too.

    D’Souza, who made a film criticizing the President, is in jail on a technicality.

    Tens of millions of illegal immigrants who vote Democrat are welcomed into the US, Al Sharpton advises Reverend Wright’s protege in the White House on racial harmony, and the recently rich e-mail deleter and co-director of the Clinton Foundation is leading in polls for president.

    Tells you a lot about America in 2015.

    Yeah. Imbeciles think that deliberately disregarding campaign finance law and then trying (and failing) to cover it up is a “technicality”.

  • theDukedog7 .

    It’s funny how many law-breaking folks who didn’t make movies critical of the president aren’t in jail. Tens of millions of them are being given an exemption from the law.

    Has Al Sharpton broken any laws? Hillary Clinton? Lois Lerner? Eric Holder, who was found in contempt of Congress but never prosecuted?

    Prosecutorial discretion, I guess.

    You, theDukedog7 sir, are a fucking imbecile.

    Please keep posting. I find your stupidity extremely entertaining.

    Wow, that’s one helluva nice parole officer.

  • theDukedog7 .

    A lot of really intelligent liberal comments here.

    Hey, since I disagree with you, why don’t you just find some technicality and throw me in jail. Ya know, the liberal way.

    Why do you think your friend Hillary deleted all those emails? Could it have been something about the money from Algeria? Or selling our uranium to Putin?

    But thank goodness justice is done, and D’Souza is behind bars.

    Here are the citations…. oops, I deleted them. You’ll just have to take my word for it, like Hillary.

    Great Cthulhu.

    They let this guy near…children?

    Someone is showing a huge lack of judgement here.

    Convicted criminal, fired from NoPatriots University for having an affair, divorced from a wife who alleged spousal abuse, and proven pathological liar.

    This guy shouldn’t even be allowed around normal people. And for a while he wasn’t, being where he belongs. In prison.

  • dmcclean

    … selling our uranium to Putin.

    LOL, wut? This is an incredibly ignorant comment. Putin has plenty of uranium of his own. Plenty: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_uranium_production.

    What in hell would he need ours for? Do the stars and stripes on the containers improve the reaction cross-section?

    What would make you think that the Secretary of State can sell our uranium?

    Where’d the money go that you think she got from selling it?

    In short, I’d ask what in holy fuck you are talking about, if it weren’t so painfully obvious that you have no idea. This is a stupid conspiracy theory even by D’Souza or WND standards.

    Maybe our anonymous troll here is Adam Baldwin. He seems to be a big fan of completely idiotic conspiracy theories (“What hard evidence is there that Obama doesn’t want ebola in America.” – from his twitter.)

    I didn’t know that deleting e-mails was a crime or that violating campaign finance laws was a mere “technicality.”

    This is super-duper unfair to poor Dinesh, who knows he isn’t a real criminal. I mean, he’s obviously just a political prisoner of the Obama administration! I’m sure that in his own mind his travails match those of Alfred Dreyfus. Dinesh is acutely suffering under the boot heel of the law! Poor baby. Poor whiny little baby.

    Oohhh! That’s my favourite kind of anti-colonialist!

  • zenlike

    And another thing: D’Souza didn’t spent one day in jail, and he plead guilty and admitted breaking the law in interviews, so even he though he did something illegal.

    Why do you lie Egnor, don’t you know you make baby jeebus cry?

    Even that right-wing rag the New York Post went to town on D’Souza over this one:
