Dinesh D'Souza
STAGGERING. GENIUS.
There's really no possible response to this so let's just all take a moment to marvel at the wisdom of conservative "filmmaker" Dinesh D'Souza.
“The common thread between ISIS and what’s going in Ferguson is you have these people who basically believe that to correct a perceived injustice, it’s perfectly okay to inflict all types of new injustices,” D’Souza said on NewsMaxTV’s Steve Malzberg Show. “Behead guys who had nothing to do with it. Go and loot shops from business owners who were not part of the original problem whatsoever. And all of this is then licensed by the left and licensed to some degree by the media.”
Here's a tip for any remaining conservatives out there who crave a career on Fox News, or in the House of Representatives, or as a conservative "filmmaker" but just haven't been able to break into that big-time yet. Take the phrase "the common thread between ___ and ___ is" and fill in whatever two recent or non-recent events you want. It doesn't have to make sense, and you get double points if either blank is filled in with the word "Benghazi." Add some extra words on the end of the sentence until you feel it's long enough that you can tack some ending punctuation on there, boom, you're done.

Nope, that's it, you're done. You're a pundit now. You can make some damn good money filling in those two blanks, just make sure that if you spend it on somebody's election campaign you bother to follow each of the two or three still-standing rules that we have left so the man can't cart you off to jail and momentarily deprive the world of your staggering genius.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
