Gene Healy on Why Dinesh D'Souza Is the Right's Michael Moore


2016: Obama's America grew out of conservative provocateur Dinesh D'Souza's 2010 Forbes article, "How Obama Thinks," which posited that dreams from the president's Kenyan absentee father motivate everything Obama Jr. does."It may seem incredible," D'Souza wrote, "to suggest that the anticolonial ideology of Barack Obama Sr. is espoused by his son, the President of the United States."

True enough: That theory wasn't remotely credible when D'Souza advanced it in Forbes, writes Gene Healy, and it's even more ludicrous on the silver screen.
