Dinesh D’Souza And Wendy Long Once Had To Apologize For A Hitler Quote In Their School Paper

D’Souza, who campaigned for Long during her 2012 U.S. Senate campaign, was indicted Thursday for election fraud. The indictment did not name the candidate he was supporting.

Dinesh D’Souza and Wendy Long (then Wendy Stone) were trustees of the conservative, off-campus Dartmouth Review in 1990.

 

According to an Associated Press article, the two apologized after an unknown staffer put a quote from Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” into the “statement of principles” published in the paper and distributed on Yom Kippur

The full quote: “Therefore, I believe today that I am acting in the sense of the Almighty Creator: By warding off the Jews, I am fighting for the Lord’s work.”

The backlash to the quote led D’Souza to criticize the school’s president, James Freedman, for creating a “lynch mob” and trying to ruin the lives of the paper’s staffers.

Officials from the paper said the quote was put in by an unknown staffer and it somehow slipped by the editors.
