The most craziest Dinesh D'Souza quotes to discover and learn by heart

Christianity is the very root and foundation of Western civilization.

What Obama is about, in my opinion, is he is a Global redistributionist.
He's pursuing reparations but it's not racial reparations. It's global reparations for the sins and conquest of colonism.
Today the West exists only to bear witness to its own obsolescence.

A bigot is simply a sociologist without credentials.
Anti-Americanism from abroad would not be such a problem if Americans were united in standing up for their own country.
'War on terror' is a misnomer. It would be like calling America's involvement in World War II a 'war on kamikazism.' Terrorism, like kamikazism, is a tactic.
There is a legitimate argument over whether the death penalty effectively deters violent crime, although my personal observation is that not one of the criminals who have been executed over the years has ever killed again.
In philosophy seminars, the choice is usually between good and evil.
In the real world, however, the choice is often between a bad guy and a worse guy.

Obama has little or nothing to do with the civil-rights movement.
His roots are in Kenya, and he is shaped far more by anti-colonialism than by anything that Martin Luther King said or did.
For many people, the reluctance to embrace Christianity is as practical as it is intellectual. They want to know what the benefits of Christianity are, or what's in it for them.
Barack Obama II is born in the Kapiolani Medical Center in Honolulu.
His birth is recorded in two local newspapers.
Death is the great wrecking ball that destroys everything.
Everything that we have done, everything that we are doing now, and all our plans for the future are completely and irrevocably destroyed when we die. Only teenagers live in that state of temporary insanity when they believe themselves immune from death.
Atheism, not religion, is the real force behind the mass murders of history.
Life after death is the elephant in the living room, the one that we are not supposed to notice.
Barack Obama is the most antibusiness president in a generation, perhaps in American history.
What I've realized is that a film operates both on the intellectual and emotional levels, and if you can find a way to tell a riveting story and draw ideas out of that, it's very powerful.
Christianity makes of life a moral drama in which we play a starring role and in which the most ordinary events take on a grand significance.
I believe the most compelling explanation of Obama's actions is that he is, just like his father, an anti-colonialist.
America is simultaneously the most attractive and most repulsive place on the planet. It is most loved and most hated.

What was distinctively Western was not slavery but the moral crusade to end slavery.
Well, the taxes that everyone else is paying are supporting lots of programs that were in place prior to Obama's new spending. So new spending has too be paid for by new taxes, or by eliminating existing tax breaks. And Obama wants that burden to be borne exclusively by the rich.
There is a real hunger for information about Obama and a sense that information is not being covered or, in some cases, even being withheld. There is a sense that there are elements of the media that are protective of Obama, that they would rather block a story that is embarassing about Obama than let the American public decide.
The life of West, Nietzsche said, is based on Christianity.
The values of the West are based on Christianity. Some of these values seem to have taken a life of their own, and this gives us the illusion that we can get rid of Christianity and keep the values. This, Nietzsche says, is an illusion...Remove the Christian foundation, and the values must go too.
I want to give Michael Moore a run for his money.
Under normal circumstances, if the centerpiece of a president's campaign is helping the disadvantaged and we are our brother's keeper, the idea that this same guy has an actual brother living in third-world poverty without any help from Obama, this would have been on the cover of 'The New York Times.' But none of them are touching it.
Christianity teaches that this life is not the only life, and there is a final judgment in which all earthly accounts are settled.

C.S. Lewis said that conscience is nothing more than the voice of God within our souls; the bridge that links the creature to the creator

I'm an immigrant to the U.S., and I've constantly been thinking about America both from the inside and from the outside. And I've come to believe that we're living at a critical time when the American Dream is in jeopardy and this American Era which began after World War II might be winding down.
We certainly did take the country from the Indians.
Right. So, but what's going on here, as I would call it a, sort of, morality tale.
