Who is Dinesh D'Souza?

Dinesh D'Souza is a political commentator, author, former Reagan policy analyst, and a former president of King's College. He was Robert and Karen Rishwain Research Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. D'Souza is a prominent voice in American politics and has been affiliated with a number of conservative organizations and publications, including the American Enterprise Institute, Heritage Foundation, Hoover Institution, and Policy Review. He also served as a policy advisor to President Ronald Reagan. D'Souza is the author of numerous New York Times best-selling books. He has written on Christian apologetics, including What's So Great About Christianity and Life After Death: The Evidence. D'Souza is also a notable critic of New Atheism.

In 2012, D'Souza released 2016: Obama's America, a film based on his 2010 book The Roots of Obama's Rage, both of which posit that Barack Obama's attitude toward America derives from his father's anti-colonialism and from a psychological desire to fulfill his father's dream of diminishing the power of Western imperial states. Critics have said the film is presented in a "conspiratorial tone" and contains speculation and projection. The film has been the highest grossing conservative political film produced in the United States.
