MAIL BOMBS ARE 'FALSE FLAG' TO DISTRACT FROM 'HORDES OF ILLEGAL ALIENS,' CLAIM CONSERVATIVE COMMENTATORS

And yet somehow authorities managed to capture and arrest a very REAL person, who was not an actor!
Cesar Sayoc





Another attempt to discredit the source because you can't refute what it says.


Discrediting the source is sometimes a valid tool, when it is clear the source is spinning lies.
I refuted D'Souza by merely pointing out that his false flag argument was in fact a lie. Cesar Sayoc is not an actor and he got twenty years for his bombing attempts.
And he's one of YOURS.

You can't hide behind convenient pablums like "discrediting the source because you can't refute" when in point of fact the source WAS REFUTED.

Dinesh D'Souza is a convicted criminal AND a liar, and a revisionist.

On May 20, 2014, D'Souza pleaded guilty in federal court to one felony charge of using a "straw donor" to make an illegal campaign contribution to a 2012 United States Senate campaign. On September 23, he was sentenced to eight months in a halfway house near his home in San Diego, five years probation, and a $30,000 fine.

And of course...
On May 31, 2018, D'Souza was issued a full pardon by President Donald Trump.

But bear in mind that a pardon does not mean you're guilty, it just means you've been pardoned for your crime.

Bill Clinton pardoned hardened criminals too.
Doesn't mean that Marc Rich wasn't a criminal.
