Enemy of the enemy is……my enemy !
Dinesh D’souza is a right-wing extremist nut-case and (therefore?) a self-proclaimed intellectual, who has gone to town with a ridiculous assetion that the so-called ‘cultural left’ in America (e.g Hollywood, gay people etc) was actually responsible for 9/11. His main motive, of course, is to sell a book.
His delusional rambling have received well-deserved smackdowns from Keith Olberman (via), various blogs (e.g see here) and in person on the The Colbert Report (dude never even realized that Colbert was having him). The twisted sense of logic he operates on is further exposed in this Newsweek article (Via Ed Brayton), which provides a list of people that D’Souza considers to be ‘the enemy’. The full list is available at either links, but one name particularly jumped out for me (and Ed talks about it too)
The Cultural Left
Norman Mailer, Salman Rushdie and Toni Morrison, novelists; journalists Frank Rich and Maureen Dowd (The New York Times); playwright Eve Ensler ("The Vagina Monologues"); authors Barbara Ehrenreich ("Nickel and Dimed") and Karen Armstrong ("A History of God")
WTF ! Rushdie – the same guy who was the target of a fatwa by Ayotollah, who had to go in hiding for a decade on that account and has never been circumspect in his harsh criticism of Islam. This same guy is considered to be part of a "domestic insurgency" and "at least as dangerous" as bin Laden’s operatives !
