The influential conservative commentator, filmmaker, and #1 bestselling author of America: Imagine a World without Her and Obama’s America—the basis for two successful documentaries—defends conservatism’s morality and exposes how the left excuses its own failings and uses false virtue to gain political advantage.
Progressives define Conservatives as greedy, selfish, and warmongering. Democratic politicians including President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, and Elizabeth Warren, as well as pundits such as Frank Rich and Paul Krugman, regularly inveigh against capitalism’s “ethic of greed” and the Republicans’ championing of the rich.
In Stealing America, Dinesh D’Souza refutes widely accepted progressive pronouncements, arguing that those on the right are not bad guys, and their policies are not harmful to Americans or their future. The actual villains, he charges, are the progressives whose true motivations—a volatile combination of envy and resentment—are camouflaged as compassion and a desire for social justice.
By vindicating conservative morality and exposing progressive immorality, D’Souza is sure to provoke a national debate. More importantly, Stealing America offers a lively rebuttal Republicans and conservatives can use to answer their critics in a fresh and convincing way.
“D’Souza enlivens the familiar material of political screeds with the colorful language of the criminals he came to know, adding to it his own insights as a seasoned political commentator. This is a must-read for any right-leaning readers looking ahead to the 2016 election.”
