D'Souza Producer: 'I've Never Had The Occasion To Fear My Government…Until Now'
When conservative writer and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza was indicted last week on campaign finance charges, we suppose we should have known that it was only a matter of time before D’Souza’s supporters claimed that he was politically targeted by a vengeful Obama administration.
Conservative columnist Rachel Alexander promptly declared that the Obama administration had “criminalize[d] dissent.” Laura Ingraham claimed, “This indictment is the kind of thing that we’re kind of accustomed to seeing come out of a place like China” and speculated that the president is ultimately interested in “putting us all in reeducation camps.” Meanwhile, D’Souza’s fellow anti-Muslim activists Pamela Geller and Robert Spencercompared the administration to European fascists in the 1930s. Matt Drudge and the Daily Caller also joined the pile-on.
Gerald Molen, the co-producer of D’Souza’s film, “2016: Obama’s America,” also weighed in, telling the Hollywood Reporter that the administration is “criminalizing dissent” and that D’Souza’s indictment “should send shivers down the spines of all freedom-loving Americans.”
On the Steve Malzberg show Friday, Molen elaborated on his theory, telling Malzberg that D’Souza is a “great American” and citing the debunked IRS-targeting scandal to claim that the Obama administration is cracking down on dissent. “I’ve never had the occasion to think that I had to fear my government, I’ve never had the thought that I had to have a reason to look over my shoulder until now.”
