Dinesh Joseph D'Souza is an Indian-American political commentator, filmmaker, and author; affiliated with several conservative organizations and publications which include the American Enterprise Institute, Heritage Foundation, Hoover Institution, and Policy Review. He served as a policy adviser to President Ronald Reagan and president of The King's College, a Christian school in New York City.
Dinesh was born in Bombay and came to the United States as an exchange student at the age of seventeen, graduating from Dartmouth College. He became a naturalized citizen in 1991. He is a critic of New Atheism.
D'Souza published “What's So Great About America” in 2003, which defends the United States against criticism of the last few decades. He stated that Americans take for granted the blessings bestowed on them by living within the borders of the United States.
His views on same-sex marriage is negative:
Marriage does not civilize men. Women do. This point is even evident in the gay community: it helps to explain why lesbians are generally much better than male homosexuals in sustaining long-term relationships. The reason that society privileges marriage and gives it a special legal status is because marriage is the only known incubator for the raising of children.
His Catholic background is important to him, also follows Protestant Reformation theology; identifying himself as a nondenominational Christian.
An interesting point made in his book, What's So Great About America, in the second chapter is that the problem with Africa is not that it was colonized, but rather that it was not colonized long enough. He supports the European colonization of India and other countries, claiming that Christian colonization was a good thing for India because it was a way for Indians to escape the caste system, superstitions, and poverty.
Six days after the September 11, 2001 attacks, D'Souza appeared on Politically Incorrect hosted by Bill Maher. That segment cost Maher's job because he stated that those who crashed planes in New York and Washington, DC were “brave warriors”.
D'Souza has been against Barack Obama, his policies and his poor character. In an article, September 2010, in Forbes, entitled “How Obama Thinks”, writing that the president was -
...trapped in his father's time machine. Incredibly, the U.S. is being ruled according to the dreams of a Luo tribesman of the 1950s. This philandering, inebriated African socialist, who raged against the world for denying him the realization of his anti-colonial ambitions, is now setting the nation's agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son. The son makes it happen, but he candidly admits he is only living out his father's dream. The invisible father provides the inspiration, and the son dutifully gets the job done. America today is governed by a ghost.
D'Souza produced a film, 2016: Obama's America, co-produced with Gerald R. Molen who co-produced Schindler's List. The Obama administration described the film as - “an insidious attempt to dishonestly smear the president”. It put D'Souza on the 'enemies of the state of Obama' list. The film grossed more than $33.4 million, the 4th highest-grossing documentary film to date and 2nd highest-grossing political documentary in the United States, to date. Yet, mainstream media paid little attention to it.

In March of 2013, D'Souza announced he was working on a film entitled America, released in 2014.

In January 2014, before the release of his film, D'Souza was indicted by federal prosecutors and charged with campaign finance law violations. He was arraigned in the Manhattan federal court on January 24, 2014. The maximum sentence for the two charges against him could incarcerate him from two to seven years in federal prison.
His attorney argued that D'Souza “did not act with any corrupt or criminal intent whatsoever”, describing the incident as “an act of misguided friendship”. The judge declared that:
The court concludes the defendant has respectfully submitted no evidence he was selectively prosecuted.
In May of 2014, D'Souza pleaded guilty to one felony count of making illegal contributions in the names of others. On September 23, 2014, D'Souza was sentenced to 5 years probation, 8 months in a community confinement center, and $30,000 fine – despite that the prosecutor, whose ulterior motive was political, wanted D'Souza to be incarcerated in prison.
In 1992, Dinesh married Dixie Brubaker, whom he met when he worked in Washington DC, and they have one daughter.
Another film that D'Souza produced was Michael Moore Hates America in 2004.
Recently, Dinesh appeared on The Kelly File, hosting a debate between D'Souza and Ward Churchill, venomous anarchist professor who was fired because of his statement that 'victims of the 9/11 attack were Nazi'.
