I Smell A Rat, And His Name Is BARRY…….

18 Oct

When the Left gets caught in scandal, called out on the facts, or exposed as hypocrites they are, they immediately attack, lie, and destroy their enemies. They do not deny the allegations, they do not defend their positions, or argue their case as to why they are right and you are wrong. No, they simply attack, and destroy their opponents rather than to debate on ideas, just as Saul Alinsky and Cloward & Piven has taught them as good little Commie soldiers…….

Editor’s note: In September, author/director Dinesh  D’Souza’s movie “2016: Obama’s America,” became the second highest grossing  political documentary of all time. On October 16th, on the day of the film’s  release on DVD, an Evangelical Christian publication, World magazine,  published a story which raised questions about D’Souza’s marriage and subsequent  engagement. D’Souza responds below:

A recent article in World magazine  gives the false impression that I, a married man, had an affair with a woman  Denise Joseph at a Christian conference in Spartanburg, S.C.  The  article alleges that I shared a hotel room with her and introduced her as my  fiancé.  Finally it states that I filed for divorce only on the day I was  confronted about my conduct by intrepid reporter Warren Smith.  Here are  the facts:

1. My wife Dixie and I have been separated for two years. Dixie  approached me and demanded this [a separation] before I came to King’s College  to become its president in late August 2010.  I informed the chairman of  the college about this at the time.  I also informed the reporter who wrote  the World article, Warren Smith, but he deliberately left it out of his piece,  even though it is entirely relevant to the context.

2. I met Denise three months ago.  We are not and have not been having  an affair.  Nor did we share a hotel room in Charlotte.  Smith did not  even ask me about this.  Instead, Smith apparently deployed conference  organizer Alex McFarland to call and raise the issue with me.

I clearly told McFarland that Denise and I stayed in separate rooms.  McFarland knew he didn’t have what he wanted, because he subsequently called me  back and asked me again.  I realized McFarland may be fronting for Smith,  so I told him I didn’t have any further comment.  I’m not sure whether  McFarland is lying or Smith is lying, but one of them made up the quotation  attributed to me that we stayed in the same room but “nothing happened.”  This is pure libel.

3.I sought out advice about whether it is legal to be engaged prior to being  divorced and I was informed that it is. Denise and I were trying to do the right  thing. I had no idea that it is considered wrong in Christian circles to be  engaged prior to being divorced, even though in a state of separation and in  divorce proceedings.  Obviously I would not have introduced Denise as my  fiancé at a Christian apologetics conference if I had thought or known I was  doing something wrong. But as a result of all this, and to avoid even the  appearance of impropriety, Denise and I have decided to suspend our  engagement.

I had no idea that it is considered wrong in Christian circles to be  engaged prior to being divorced, even though in a state of separation and in  divorce proceedings.

4. While World notes that my divorce filing was registered with the court on  October 4—giving the impression that I moved quickly on the day their reporter  spoke to me—in reality I had been working with a San Diego law firm on this for  the previous two weeks.

5. So why would World write such a misleading, sensational story that we  would normally expect from the tabloids?  Actually there is a back story  here which was noted by Amy Sullivan at the New Republic, as well as numerous  other sources. Marvin Olasky, the editor of World, is the former provost of the  King’s College. Olasky was on the search committee when I interviewed to be  president, and he vehemently opposed my candidacy. Olasky publicly admitted  that he was resigning his position as a consequence of my appointment.  The  reporter who wrote this story, Warren Smith, also used to work as a consultant  for King’s until I decided not to renew his contract.  And what was  Olasky’s gripe against me?  As he put it, I was seeking to make King’s a  non-denominational “mere Christianity college” in the image of C.S. Lewis.   This for Olasky was simply intolerable.   Having nursed his  grievance for two years, now apparently Olasky is using World to continue his  vendetta.

6. Ultimately this is not just about Olasky or even World magazine.  It  is also about how we Christians are supposed to behave with one another. And the  secular world is watching. Is this how we love and treat fellow believers? If my  conduct was improper, wouldn’t it be the decent and charitable thing to approach  me about it?  Instead, here is a clear attempt to destroy my career and my  ministry.  This is viciousness masquerading as righteousness.  And  this is the behavior that is truly worthy of Christian condemnation.
