Megyn Kelly Smacks Dinesh D'Souza For Deluded Obama Comments

Dinesh D'Souza get's punked by Megyn Kelly for trying to say Obama isn't really a black man.

Megyn Kelly interviewed convicted felon Dinesh D'Souza from his court ordered community confinement center as part of five years of probation for violating federal campaign finance laws, about the differences between the way Al Sharpton and MLK handled race relations. As he was bashing Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson's role as a race activists, he veered off into Nutsville and even surprised the Fox News host by attacking President Obama for not having an "actual black experience" in America.

D'Souza: different a legacy it is from the current generation of race activists Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, but I would add Eric Holder and Barack Obama, who are cut from a completely different cloth have a completely different attitude toward the color-blind ideal, which they reject.

Kelly: How so, how do you put Al Sharpton in the same field as Barack Obama?

D'Souza: Well, they're not the same, I mean Barack Obama is actually an odd example because although he's the first African America president he actually hasn’t had the African-American experience. In fact he's not descendent from slaves on either side of his family. His father...

Kelly: What do you mean he hasn't had the African America experience, he has black skin and he grew up in America as a black man

D'Souza: Well, he grew up in Hawaii and then he spent..

Kelly: That's America!

D'Souza: ...a considerable time in Indonesia, He's made multiple trips to Kenya..

Kelly: Oh Come on Dinesh! That does not deprive him of his experiences of a black man.

Going to Indonesia and Kenya I guess disqualifies a black man from being black. And did you know the KKK asked for proof of slave descendants before they strung you up? In a typical conservative pundit viewpoint, they dehumanize anyone to the left of themselves, (liberals aren't real people). Obama can't be a real black person--just like he's not a real American citizen. To his surprise it fell on deaf ears from Megyn Kelly. Resentments certainly do make people like D'Souza say crazy things.

Too bad she didn't bring up his offensive MLK tweets about himself.
