Debate Master Dinesh: Panel of Leftists Take on D’Souza in Debate over Slavery, Dinesh Destroys Them [VIDEO]

Editor’s Note: Dinesh D’Souza displays his intellect and, indeed, his patience in this interview. While host Michael Dyson seems to be qualified to debate D’Souza, the other panelists dodge questions and steer the discussion in the direction they are comfortable with. One of them even admits to not having seen the movie that they were discussing.

Dinesh D’Souza, the man behind the controversial new documentary America, jumped into the lion’s den today with an appearance on MSNBC, facing off against Ed Show guest host Michael Eric Dyson and panelists Eric Boehlert and Zerlina Maxwell over slavery, America’s comparative ills in world history, and whetherPresident Obama is a dangerous “radical.”

D’Souza contended that people exaggerate past sins like taking land from Native Americans and slavery. Dyson challenged him on slavery, arguing it was worse (to a degree) when America did it because there was actually religious justification being trotted out. D’Souza pointed out there were free black slave owners back then, and furthermore, slavery was abominable, but the United States “fought a great war to end it.”
