NeoCon Propogandist Opens Himself Up To Hilarious Twitter Pile-On

We’ve spoken before about how Twitter can be a hellscape for controversy or unique venue for distinctive storytelling. Well, it is also the best place on the internet for a good ol’ fashioned pile-on, which is exactly what happened when filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza went after critics.

For those of you lucky enough to have no idea who D’Souza is, he’s the director behind such “documentaries” as 2016: Obama’s America, which imagined the dystopia a second Obama presidential term would bring to the U.S., and America: Imagine the World Without Her, which something something liberals are the devil. I dunno. I couldn’t even make it through this trailer:

Neither of D’Souza’s NeoCon diatribes have fared well with critics, getting a 25% and an 8% respectively on Rotten Tomatoes. And with his anti-HRC movie, Hillary’s America on its way, D’Souza decided to take a preemptive swing at critics:

There’s a lot to eyeroll over in this tweet, and Twitter was quick to let D’Souza know.

Professional critics even got in on the fun, including NY Times’ A.O. Scott.

But it was D’Souza’s deliciously obliviousness to one particular element of this tweet that really got the pile-on going.


Kristy Puchko is disappointed she couldn’t find a Happy Endings pile-on gif for this post. Get it together, Internet!
