MSNBC Panel Gangs up on Dinesh D’Souza over ‘Radical’ Obama Charges and More

‘[Obama] is praising Ronald Reagan. What radical is doing that?’

D’Souza and MSNBC Host in Explosive Battle over Slavery, ‘Radical’ Obama (Mediaite)

Dinesh D’Souza, the man behind the controversial new documentary America, jumped into the lion’s den today with an appearance on MSNBC, facing off against Ed Show guest hostMichael Eric Dyson and panelists Eric Boehlertand Zerlina Maxwell over slavery, America’s comparative ills in world history, and whetherPresident Obama is a dangerous “radical.”

D’Souza contended that people exaggerate past sins like taking land from Native Americans and slavery. Dyson challenged him on slavery, arguing it was worse (to a degree) when America did it because there was actually religious justification being trotted out. D’Souza pointed out there were free black slave owners back then, and furthermore, slavery was abominable, but the United States “fought a great war to end it.”
