Conservative commentator and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza compared the reaction following the death of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Mo., at the hands of a police officers to actions being committed by ISIS militants.
“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.”
In May, Dinesh D’Souza pleaded guilty to charges he made $20,000 in illegal contributions to his friend Republican New York Senate candidate Wendy Long’s campaign in 2012.
He awaits sentencing on Sept. 23.
