Dinesh D’Souza called out Michelle Obama on her final thesis from when she was a student at Princeton University. D’Souza called the thesis “illiterate and incoherent.”
His comments come following Michelle’s appearance in London as part of her book tour for her new memoir, “Becoming”.
While speaking with Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Michelle made a ridiculous claim:
“I have been at probably every powerful table that you can think of,” she said.
D’Souza said in his post on Facebook, “Anyone who has read Michelle’s college thesis – a document so illiterate and incoherent that it was written, as Christopher Hitchens put it, in “no known language” – will chuckle heartily at this one.
A number of conservative bloggers wrote about the restriction, fueling controversy, until the Obama campaign itself sent Politico the thesis in full.
Princeton University then followed suit and lifted any restrictions to the thesis.
Hitchens, who was a frequent critic of Obama’s presidency before he died in 2011, was quick to tear into the thesis – which was titled ‘Princeton Educated Blacks and the Black Community’.
He mocked Michelle for what he said was a ‘narrow choice of subject’ because she was a ‘black woman at Princeton’.
Below are a few excerpts from Michelle Obama’s college thesis:
As a result of this greater sense of comfort felt by respondents with groups with whom they have spent more time, more respondents will be interested in benefiting these particular groups in comparison to others. Thus, the variable measuring time spent with Blacks or Whites will also influence the dependent variable measured by the respondents’ motivation to benefit various social groups. (Robinson, 19)
As we have seen, the findings discussed in the previous paragraphs seem to support the hypothesis that respondents who were increasing the time spent with Blacks were becoming more attached to the Black community during the Pre-to-Prin period both in their individual interactions and in their political ideologies about Black and White relations on a community level. Respondents who were increasing time spent with Blacks were also becoming interested in positively contributing to the Black community. (Robinson, 42)
With respect to belief in God, it appears that their general belief in some kind of God was relatively high. Sixty-two percent of the respondents said they definitely believe in God, while only 6% reported that they do not believe in God; 24% are uncomfortable with the word “God” but believe in a transcendent force; and 9% either do not know or are uncertain. Seventy-one percent of the respondents believe God influences their own lives, but only 43% of the respondents believe that God influences the way society is organized (Robinson, 35)
I think after reading through some of this mind-numbing nonsense, you can begin to understand D’Souza’s point.
