‘You didn’t build that’: Anti-colonialist rage?

‘Americans stole it, he has every right to use power of state to confiscate it back’

Published: July 27, 2012

Dinesh D’Souza

At the beginning of his new film “2016: Obama’s America,” Dinesh D’Souza states, “We are all shaped by our pasts, and we carry elements of the past into our future. But we have to be careful, because nothing can threaten the future quite as much as the debts of the past.”

And after the Washington, D.C., screening of the film, D’Souza told WND he believes Obama’s anti-colonialist past was the driving force behind telling a crowd at Roanoke, Va., on July 13, “If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

In brief, D’Souza explained European colonialism as fundamentally about occupation, rule, conquest and acquiring wealth; whereas anti-colonialism is fundamentally about redistributing the wealth of the world “so that it is enjoyed equitably by everyone in the world.”

D’Souza told WND, “Anti-colonialism’s core idea is that the wealth America has now is not earned wealth, but stolen wealth. And I believe that is a very influential idea with Obama and his recent comment that business owners didn’t earn their success, they used the public school system and public roads. That is the intellectual equivalent of me saying to Obama, ‘You didn’t really win the election. You, after all, drove on the public roads to your rallies, so you don’t deserve to be president.’

“The reason Obama makes such arguments – bogus though they are – is because he’s trying to say ‘If you didn’t earn it, I have the right to take it,’” D’Souza said. “And that is an idea rooted in anti-colonialism that the rich people and rich countries don’t deserve what they have. They didn’t earn it, they stole it and he has every right to use the power of the state to confiscate it back.”

One of the best parts of this story is the journalist who told me the movie “scared the hell out of” him. Read the rest @ http://www.wnd.com/2012/07/you-didnt-build-that-anti-colonialist-rage/
