Did Mockery of Obama Get Dinesh D'Souza Arrested?
Has Marxist/Leninist pal of Bill Ayers Mike Klonsky just given us the reason for the arrest of conservative writer Dinesh D'Souza? Does he have inside information?
On January 24, Klonsky dashed off a quick "note" to D'Souza on his Small Talk Blog:
Here we thought Obama's Department of Justice fingered D'Souza for an allegedly illegal campaign contribution. Turns out the catalyst for the arrest and excessive $500,000 bond may actually stem from a tweet.
Klonsky suggests the arrest is payback for D'Souza's "racist" mockery of President Obama's post-verdict comment in the Trayvon Martin case.
On July 19, 2013, a week after George Zimmerman was found 'not guilty' the commander-in-chief made a surprise appearance at a Friday press briefing. Obama addressed the Martin case saying, "You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said that this could have been my son. Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago."
After the 2012 election D'Souza wrote, "I am thankful this week when I remember that America is big enough and great enough to survive a Grown-Up Trayvon in the White House."
Within hours of D'Souza's allusive tweet, media shills from Politico to Americablog ripped into the filmmaker calling him "racist," "cruel," and an "ugly hater." A writer from Americablog went so far as to say D'Souza's message was so "vile," he gives new meaning to the word "hoodie"-as in "white hoodie."
D'Souza ended up taking the tweet off his page, but called out the "feigned outrage" from media outlets, especially after Obama himself had originated the sound bite.
The tweet did cause a stir when it surfaced, and Klonsky was an Obama insider in 2008. Does he know what he's talking about?
Klonsky hails from a select circle of Chicago communist radicals that includes his own CPUSA card-carrying father arrested for advocating the overthrow of the U.S. government in the 1950's.
Klonsky started his own Marxist Leninist Communist Party in the late 1960's which was officially recognized by the Chinese Communist Party. Mao Zedong was said to have greatly admired Klonsky.
Klonsky, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn go way back when they were members of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). After he and Ayers became professors, they worked together on the Small Schools Workshop initiative in the early 1990's. Klonsky was awarded $175,000 by the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, chaired by Barack Obama.
In 2001 he stated that he and Ayers were still gung-ho in their zeal to destroy capitalism, but they had learned to work within the system.
Perhaps, Klonsky is right. The roots of Obama's rage toward D'Souza may have started with a tweet that dared to make fun of the most potent weapon he has in his war on America-stirring up racial tension.
