But now he's gone to jail for violating campaign finance laws. Freepers love the idea of the persecution they claim to finally be evident, and they hate campaign finance laws as an assault on free speech. So - for now - he has become the new Freeper genius darling who can do no wrong.
This thread also serves selective sympathy for people on probation, as Freepers find it really unfair, for this one time only.
Avoiding_Sulla is sure this was civil disobedience. Sneaky, covert civil disobedience.
A patriot sees an unconstitutional law, then willfully breaks it for the purpose of gaining standing in court with the intention of getting the law overturned by court ruling.july4thfreedomfoundation wishes his side were as unprincipled as the Democrats in his head:
Doubly so if he suspects that he will be sought out for selective prosecution (as D’Souza says).
What do you label it when the law-breaker decides not to fight, but to plead guilty as charged?
He should have taken a ploy from the dems playbook, pled not guilty, and denied any knowledge of wrong doing. Then, blamed his opponents.Albion Wilde knows the real reason why D'Souza didn't go to jail:
Holder, Inc probably didn't want a man of D'Souza's intelligence and communications skills to observe what is going on in the prisons, especially the aggressive muslim prosetylzation gangs.Jumper finds the sentence criminal. Which is awkward.
This is criminal. He is not insane, nor a threat to the public... his crime is give $15,000 too much to a non-democrat party candidate.BuffaloJack - it is time for melodrama!
This should spark some type of legal action and political debate. If America is to start interning political opposition and then be forced to undergo therapeutic counseling for their political beliefs, we are in deep trouble; the 8 hours of community service is also excessive.
We have truly become a soviet state. A man is imprisoned for exercising his Constitutional right to free speech.Tilted Irish Kilt explains that 8 hours of community service is to keep D'Souza from writing, somehow.
#1)“For the first eight months of his probation term, D’Souza will have to live in a “community confinement center” in San Diego,.."CivilWarBrewing is sure D'Souza will be assasinated by Obama's ever-ready army of false flags. Also, probation is worse than prison:
Where the Feds can watch him
#2) "..Judge Richard Berman, who also fined D’Souza $30,000
Which is 50% over the alledged amount of the illegal donation to campaign funds
#3)"..and directed him to undergo “therapeutic counseling.”
Which means supervised state-sponsored indocrination classes, which he must pass.
#4".. D’Souza will also have to perform one day per week of community service during his probation term”
which means that they can keep him silenced for 5 years.
Any violation of community service and he can be considered 'in violation' of the terms of sentancing, and could be returned to Fed Court
and 're-sentanced' for any failure to fully comply with community service directive.
Thus , the sentancing is designed to 'box him in' with rules and regulations, and to quiet his voice for 5 years.
While at first look this judicial determination looks humane , it is designed to muffle his criticism .
So, how many 'psycho Army veterans with PTSD' are lying in wait for D'souza at the Community Confinement Center? We all know this is what's going to happen to him.lentulusgracchus also thinks Obama's an assasinatin' fool.
Mark this thread for when it happens. This is a travesty. I'D RATHER BE IN PRISON THEN BE UNDER THE TERMS OF THIS 'OVERKILL' PROBATION!
Bad news, Dinesh .... if they'd won that one, you'd have ended up dead. They'd have killed you in prison.combat_boots knows what the counseling will be!
Cultural Revolution training, 1960s, under Mao and his ‘young people’ with their screaming and loudspeakers.SoFloFreeper plays the race card as ridiculously as any liberal partisan:
Racist judge. If it was a white liberal Demon Rat, there’d be no sentence. Or conviction.pieceofthepuzzle thinks D'Souza's films are community service. Also, Bill Clinton arglebargle:
From my perspective, making films like his is a form of community service, and should count as such. By the way, violate campaign finance law and get 8months of confinement and 5years probation, but abuse your power by having sex in the White House and then lying about it on international television, and get sentenced to reelection and adoration by the left.You know, a lot of black people would agree with annalex:
I don’t think we have a functioning justice system in this country anymore. It simply persecutes the politically disfavored.
