Dinesh D'Souza

Dinesh Joseph D'Souza (born April 25, 1961 (age 60)) in Bombay, India, is a conservative scholar, author, blogger and commentator. He is the former President of The King's College in New York.[1]

In college, he was a prominent writer with The Dartmouth Review, a conservative publication. He is a former editor of Policy Review, a conservative journal. He was a fellow at the Hoover Institute at Stanford University.

A Christian immigrant from India who wrote a book entitled What's So Great About Christianity, D'Souza wrote a piece entitled "Thank God for America" on his blog on November 21, 2007.[2] Today he is mostly involved with exposing the contradictions and hypocrisy of atheists, and the censorship of Christian leadership in the modern world.

He regularly participates in debates with New Atheists. These have included Christopher Hitchens (6 times), Daniel Dennett (once), Peter Singer (twice), Dan Barker (twice), and Michael Shermer (twice).

In September 2010, D'Souza published Roots of Obama's Rage, which explores possible influences that Barack Obama, Sr may have had on his son, the President. D'Souza asserts:

The most powerful country in the world is being governed according to the dreams of a Luo tribesman of the 1950s—a polygamist who abandoned his wives, drank himself into stupors, and bounced around on two iron legs (after his real legs had to be amputated because of a car crash caused by his drunk driving). This philandering, inebriated African socialist, who raged against the world for denying him the realization of his anti-colonial ambitions, is now setting the nation’s agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son.[3]

The book did not receive wide attention until it was made into a motion picture entitled, 2016: Obama's America which was released during the 2012 Presidential campaign. The movie has become a box office success, on track to garner the second-highest box office receipts for a documentary in history.[4][5] He subsequently produced the movies America: Imagine the World Without Her (2014), Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party (2016), and Death of a Nation: Can We Save America a Second Time? (2018).

Personal Life

D'Souza has been married twice. He is the father of one daughter, Danielle Gill. Gill's husband, Brandon, ran for the open Texas 26th Congressional District seat (vacated by the retiring Michael Burgess) and defeated ten other candidates in the 2024 Republican Primary. He faces token Democrat opposition in a district which is heavily Republican.

Criminal conviction and pardon

In September 2014 D'Souza was convicted of making $20,000 in illegal campaign contributions and sentenced to 5 years probation.[1]

Andrew McCarthy noted this about D'Souza's indictment:

"Yet there were patent mitigating circumstances, starting with the fact that few people actually get prosecuted at all for this offense. Even in the case of gargantuan violations, such as the Obama 2008 campaign’s own millions of dollars in illicit contributions, the Justice Department allows cases to be settled with an administrative fine. Furthermore, in the few cases that are pursued criminally, there is unvaryingly a corruption angle — the donor is dodging the limits in the expectation of a quid pro quo.
"In D’Souza’s case, there was nothing of the kind: He was trying to be supportive of a friend who had no chance to win."[6]

President Trump gave D'Souza a full pardon on May 31, 2018, citing D'Souza's unfair treatment by the U. S. Government.[7]
