Justice on Trial
Friends, you might want to read this article, which is an explanation by Dinesh D'Souza of how his recent pardon came about. If what he says is the straight skinny, it's a classic case of political prosecution -- nay, persecution. It's also a good reminder of how easy it is to pervert the justice system and turn it against one's political enemies. Granted, Dinesh broke the law, and he should have faced punishment, but the punishment must fit the crime, no? And the prosecution itself should not begin with a political agenda.
Bill Clinton spoke long ago of the "politics of personal destruction", but in truth what is happening now makes the dirty politics of the 90s seem like child's play. Make no mistake -- if you're a conservative, and you're outspoken, someone on the Left is gunning for you. Stay on your toes -- that's my advice, and keep out of trouble, because the slightest infraction, for someone with the "wrong" politics, could be devastating.
I read one of Dinesh D'Souza's books, a long, long time ago, and I enjoyed it very much. D'Souza is an intelligent, insightful conservative. No wonder liberals hate him. Of course, the fact that he's non-white only makes them hate him more...
