Conservative writer and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza was indicted last week on charges that he violated campaign finance laws.
The arrest of a prominent conservative, whose 2012 documentary 2016: Obama’s America savaged the president, has many on the right saying the prosecution is politically motivated.
Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch, no friend of D’Souza, smells a rat:
Decades of this have poisoned the well of American politics, and paved the way for Obama to take the demonization to the next level by unleashing the law on them. Arresting prominent members of the opposition is the kind of behavior we have seen from the likes of Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler; it is a hallmark of authoritarianism, not (until now) of politics in the United States. Of course, Stalin and Hitler didn’t stop with arresting their foes; they had them murdered as well, usually after a show trial. Obama is not doing that, but is even one step down this road one that Americans want to take?
Meanwhile, the left is laughing at what they see as right-wing paranoia. Steve Benen writes:
Obviously, the idea that the Justice Department would go out of its way to target D’Souza is pretty silly and those pushing the argument have nothing to substantiate it. But the takeaway from their reaction is that the indictment may actually help improve D’Souza’s standing in conservative political circles.
