By The Right Scoop


Dinesh D’Souza debated Bill Ayers tonight at Dartmouth College and you can the full debate below.

They begin by each taking 18 minutes to state their positions. After that is complete they respond to each others positions for 5 or 10 minutes each, and then they begin asking each other questions directly. After that ends the Q&A begins.

If you don’t have too much time I’d recommend skipping the 18 minute speeches and begin where they are responding to each others speeches at around the 42 minute mark. But you’ll be missing out on some great stuff, I assure you, especially D’Souza’s view of the greatness of America.

    WOOT! Thanks RS!

  • GodspeedJPS

    Yes, thanks RS!

  • Hotlanta Mike

    Is Billy the Bomber going to state on the air that he wrote “Dreams of My Father”?.

  • Stewart Watson

    Or that his org wrote the omnibus bill? @hotlanta mike

  • sDee

    For this disgusting communist scum to quote Thoreau and Emerson is his corner of this debate makes clear the intellectual dishonesty and contempt of the P.O.S

    To think this scum is teaching those who teach our teachers.

    Disgusting.

    • Patriot077

      I noticed he didn’t answer the question about corporate backed standards and testing.
      also was disgusting to hear his monologue of authors and artists knowing that his common rotten to the core curriculum dispenses with literature and substitutes insulation manuals and the like.

      • sDee

        With Common Core, the liberal intellectual marxists got out flanked by the global governance corporatists.

        Time for a true populist revolution of freemen. Tar and feather all the bastards and reclaim America. The are out numbered and outarmed.

        • Patriot077

          I think it was Ayers that was behind the initial common core math, but that was about 15 years ago. It’s pretty much tied into Agenda 21, isn’t it? I
          am thankful I don’t have a child in school now, but I still have my grandbaby to worry about. (not to mention all the other little kids that will be zombies if they are forced into CC.)

  • sDee

    OK I get it. One has to be stoned out of their mind to sit through more than 45 secs of this man Ayers.

    He literally makes no sense!

    No wonder the minds of of American youth has been turned into mush.

    • Stewie

      I was almost convinced it was just me…..I see a D’souza controlled beatdown. I swear he’s already covered this ground years ago.

  • nibblesyble

    Love that Dinesh, in spite of being unfairly targeted by the imperial Obama regime, goes out and fights for what he believes. He is in my prayers!

  • Stewie

    Glad I tuned in- Thanks RS

  • Stewie

    sounds like both men are laying traps for each other

  • sybilll

    Dang, my old computer just doesn’t have the speed to stream this smoothly. I’ll have to catch the video later, but I did Tweet this to promote watching it here.

  • notebene

    Ayers knows all about lying…he veils his evil with trying to seem benevolent! Who the hell is he to judge anyone the murderous thug! D’Sousa is outstanding and not falling for the communist’s trap quite well!

  • notebene

    Ayers just called homosexuals queers and the audience boos D’Sousa! What a load of nonsense! Ayers is using division to turn the audience to his side! Alinsky drone through and through! What a vile pig!

  • Stewie

    Grand Slam D’Souza on the Christian rights on campus

    • marketcomp

      Yes it was!

    • http://www.therightscoop.com/ The Right Scoop

      that debate got heated. But yeah, D’Souza was awesome in making his point.

  • marketcomp

    Ayer’s is just a walking cliché of Liberalism!

  • notebene

    Suppression of the vote comes from the right?!! Are you kidding me! What the hell were the Black Panthers doing…helping Mitt Romney?! Ayers lies with such ease…I want to punch him right in the mouth!

    • OhioGene

      Ayers is proceeding from an understanding that is anchored in the past. Perhaps to him it is not a lie. He is stuck in the Weather he created when his path was the Underground. Somehow he missed the gains made by those that chose the path of peace.

  • MissDiane47

    Re: The Constitution question … who’s surprised that Ayers said he thinks it should be changed? I’m not!

    • Laurel

      Me either…and like a good little parasite he latches onto the work others sacrificed to build because he is incapable of building it himself.

  • marketcomp

    Yeah Ayer’s the Constitution is a living breathing document, riiiight.

    • notebene

      With Ayers…the Constitution needs the stench of Alinsky influence to be more appealing and acceptable.

    • Patriot077

      I was disappointed to hear the one gentleman’s question about the “constitutional convention”. Good on D’Souza for later on stating that their is a constitutional process to amend it.

    • Watchman74

      Nope, it’s an enduring document. The Constitution limits their power, so of course they want to think of it as a living breathing document so they can change it. I’ve heard Obama call it that too.

  • marketcomp

    WTF, Bill Ayer’s are you talking about? States extending human liberties?

  • proudhispanicconservative

    Dammit I missed it, I hope scoop has the entire thing later on.

    • sDee

      worth a watch -

  • sjmom

    Why should felons have the right to vote? They gave up their right to vote when they committed a crime.

  • marketcomp

    The military cannot even openly express their Christian faith by reading a Bible, Bill Ayer’s! What a terrorist.

  • marketcomp

    Doesn’t Ayer’s know that his very right to speak on that stage tonight was paid for by those who served and gave their lives for the liberties stated in the Constitution?

    • MissDiane47

      Bill Ayers cares about Bill Ayers and any opportunity to hear himself speak and basically denounce the Constitution.

  • Stewie

    Ugh! Question evaded about powers given to government, by Ayers……

  • odin147

    Not interested in a debate with a terrorist.

    • Stehekin912

      Not sure why this debate is even happening…and with a terrorist? No way.

  • sDee

    So why the hell does she just not head on back to Korea?

    That woman is representative of 10’s of millions of immigrants that the state department and INS has recruited.

    • Patriot077

      Dinesh took care of her though when he let everyone know if not for us she could be living with the retarded dictator …

      • sDee

        Yup. I did hear that. Nice.

  • sDee

    mindless progressives on parade – this is an Ivy league School!

  • sDee

    Damn. DeSouza is good with the Ivy League lecture. Damn good.

  • blackbird

    Thanks very much for bringing over the debate Scoop.

    I had never heard Ayers before, I did not know he was so ignorant.

    • http://www.therightscoop.com/ The Right Scoop

      Just like Obama.

      • marketcomp

        Most uber Liberals are so arrogant they are ignorant.

  • sDee

    Education situation is catastrophic yet Bill Ayers has given us the government education system.

    America’s universities are churning out the walking dead.

  • plus_tips

    Does Bill Ayers have a hearing and Cognition Problem? Dinesh was sorta translating for him what the Audience was asking.

    • sDee

      BIll Ayers, like most spoiled liberal washed up 60’s professors has lived his life in a self constructed bubble of pseudo intellectualism.

      He had to venture outside his artificial reality to debate D’Souza. It was traumatic for him.

      Ayers lives fat and happy sucking his sustenance off the very capitalistic system he denigrates.

      Pathetic loser.

      • marketcomp

        Ain’t that the truth.

  • plus_tips

    If You want to know what Obamao’s Essence and World View is no need to look any further than Ayers.

    • sDee

      So predictable, the talking points of the Progressives.. Betcha it took Barry all of an hour with Ayers to memorize them.

      You’d think the elephants could outsmart such mindless liberal mantra.

      Nope, not a chance. Gotta figure the elephants are part of this too.

      No?

  • plus_tips

    These Mind Numb Zombie Kids are paying tons of Money to be taught to be Anti-American and Anti-White.

    • marketcomp

      And Anti-Christian.

  • sDee

    Will a brown guy from India finally convince Americans that their white guilt is suicidal for the greatest nation in world history?

    • Deborah Hallsted

      Thanks, the irony of Ayers lecturing him about race really bothered me. I almost wanted Dinesh to point to his skin and say, “really, really you are going to lecture me on racism”?’

  • DarkKnight2016

    And in the post-debate poll (not real):

    Dinesh D’Souza – 68% WINNER
    Bill Ayers – 32%

    • marketcomp

      I concur.

      • DarkKnight2016

        Part of me has real confidence that Dinesh will be found innocent of the campaign finance fraud charges against him. Why am I confident? Because of the great legal mind of Ted Cruz is in support of Dinesh.

        • marketcomp

          BOOM! Sen. Cruz is one of the Great legal minds and if Dinesh takes his advice he will prevail.

        • Patriot077

          That is good news.

  • Attila_the_hun

    Terrorist Bill keep pounding on contradictions. I guess he is from out space who doesn’t know that life is full of contradictions. Typical brain death intellectual, over educated communist idiot.

  • notsofastthere

    Ayers like Holder and Obama claim we’re still a White supremacist nation, but never explain how there are so many Blacks in congress making laws and so many Black movie actors and sports millionaires.
    Leftist will always tell lies and distract from the main question.

  • DarkKnight2016

    Let’s remember Greg Gutfeld’s excellent monologue from May 2013 after Ayer’s tried to explain the difference between him and the Boston bombers:

    • johnfromjersey

      While Beckel makes a good point, I believe there should’ve been charges against the shooters, (Military charges), the Army was very different then. First off, we had the draft, so a lot of young men, mostly poor ones, were in the Army now. Discipline was more difficult and some joined so they could “kill some Charlie”. Todays Military are all volunteers and are there because they want to be there. Also, we had too many spoiled brats, who were raised by parents who understood the depression by living through it, and didn’t wish to deprive junior of anything. I lived through it all, grew up in the 50’s in a little berg that was a lot like “The Christmas Story”. I was a hippy in Haight-Ashbury for a while until it occurred to me that why should someone else have to pay me to get high and have sex all day, every day. In other words, play, have fun. Don’t worry, father will bail me out! I must say, growing up was easier for me than for many. We weren’t poor, but we didn’t have much “disposable income”. If I wanted something expensive, I had to earn it. One year, my dad bought me a 3 speed, English Racer for Christmas. It was a little over $100.00. He probably had to save all year to afford it.
      What does this have to do with the thread? I guess the government we must live with, is more important than even we here understand. Back then, we trusted people because people were more trustworthy. Now that the “good old boy’s club”, jokingly referred to as Congress, has been rolling along for 40+ years, we the people have a warped idea of what government is intended to do. If we don’t take back the educational system, it won’t matter who gets elected.

  • plus_tips

    That F.O.B.ish Korean Girl that was Knocking American Exceptionalism had to be from the North Side.

    • DarkKnight2016

      She probably wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for the United States getting involved in the Korean war.

      • sDee

        She could not cut it in South Korea either.

    • sDee

      She probably got a full scholarship – I am serious. This is what our state department is active in. UN NGOs do the recruiting.

    • clockwindingdown

      Repeating the American history as taught to her by the left, then judging the country that is giving her opportunity in a negative light.

      How smart is she really when she fails to see herself and the advantage she is getting by being here?

  • timsrighty

    Bill Ayers shouldn’t be walking free, much less debating or teaching.

  • Alborn

    The major problem with our country is that Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorn were not executed for their violent attempt to overthrow the government. Peaceful protests yes violent behavior and people using bombs should be executed. I was a little disappointed in Dinesh because he let Bill get some lies in without rebuttal. And it is Ayers government education that has created the class of uneducated so they will vote for his social engineering crap. I had difficulty listening to the crap of Ayers.

    • clockwindingdown

      “And it is Ayers government education that has created the class of uneducated so they will vote for his social engineering crap. I had difficulty listening to the crap of Ayers.”

      I noticed that when ever possible Ayers had D’Souza go first… I also noticed then same old same old from ayers, left talking points without substance to back it up, just revisionist talking points…

  • FreeManWalking

    As usual thanks Scoop!

    I logged on about halfway through I plan to watch again. I thoroughly enjoy listening to those that are as artuculate as D’Souza reason out and explain the finer points of the constitution and why it was successful.

  • plus_tips

    How Great must the US be if all the Left Wing Crazies have so much time on their hands that all they do with that time and energy is sitting around discussing Gay this or Lesbian that? When is Armageddon Coming?

  • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

    Students’ scope and view of life is just as narrow now as 45 years ago. D’Souza’s remarks may – hopefully – become meaningful to them after they get out and experience real life.
    He is brilliant.

  • marketcomp

    Dinesh is on Hannity tomorrow.

  • sDee

    Debate Summary:
    D’Souza made Ayers look like the blowhard, pseudo-intellectual communist asshole that he really is.

  • plus_tips

    Most of the Left Wing American hating Nutcases when push comes to shove will do as Frederick Douglas and not leave the Great Satan for a Turd World hellhole.

  • Conservative_Hippie

    D’Souza took it too easy on Ayers. Ayers should have had his butt handed to him on a silver Dartmouth platter!

  • stang289

    Dont send your kids to Dartmouth it reeks of Liberalism the Mental disorder

    • sDee

      Don’t send your kids to any Ivy League school. They are corrupt, intellectually bankrupt, and whores to private foreign donors,

      • Conservative_Hippie

        My wife was an Ivy Leaguer and voted for Clinton twice. She accepted Jesus as her savior halfway through Clinton’s second term, which was right before I met her. Her spiritual conversion affected her political outlook, she is now a conservative.

    • sDee

      It did however turn out a guy named Dinesh D;Souza. ;)

  • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

    The only thing that disappointed me was the exchange about what I took to be a question about the COS, but was referred to as a “constitutional convention.” Not sure if D’Souza just took him literally or if he really does not endorse a convention of states (COS) to amend the Constitution.
    A constitutional convention would be disastrous, but this country is in dire need of a COS.
    http://www.conventionofstates.com/
    and K-Bob’s interactive: http://articlefiveprocess.com/

    • sDee

      This is a core pivot point on the article 5 process for me.

      I am not convinced yet. If I saw the states align and repeal the 17th amendment, not only would I have confidence but freemen would be able to take back the Senate.

    • MlkMan

      It was painfully obvious that Dinesh hasn’t read The Liberty Amendments.
      It’s not a constitutional convention, it’s a convention of the states to propose amendments to the constitution.
      I’m sure Mark will have an aneurism when he hears it.

      • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

        Not 100% sure…he may have been thrown off by the questioner’s use of the term “constitutional convention.” D’Souza did a fabulous job overall, though.

        • MlkMan

          Agreed

  • OhioGene

    The debate was won in the opening statements. The rest of it was candy on the cake.

  • clockwindingdown

    Best part is anti capitalist bill going outside to hock his books after the debate, oh the hypocrisy! “This system is bad, this country is bad, we should all be equal, the man is keeping you down, inequality, racism is alive and well, buy my books!”

  • jgilman1

    You can always tell which one doesn’t believe what he’s saying and the one that does, which one is reading a script and which one is laying the smack down straight from the heart.

    • clockwindingdown

      When bill ran back to get his papers before questions were to be asked made me think planted questions were to soon follow…

      • jgilman1

        Yeah I caught that too.

  • ManaMoffa

    I watched it all, Not only is Ayers clearly not an intellectual and clearly without any valid argument, the students seem to have the intellectual prowess of a 4th grade class.
    It’s shocking to see .

    • Watchman74

      They react on emotionalism, because if they relied on intellectualism all their ideas would fall apart.

      • ManaMoffa

        I agree but it’s more shocking than that. There is absolutely zero higher thinking among them.
        They’ve been in a school system for 14 plus years and have nothing to show for it.

  • http://luvsiesous.com/ el_guero2000

    I will have to watch it all – I only caught the last 30 minutes ….

    But, Ayers showed himself to be less prepared than Dinesh than I expected …. much less prepared.

  • Guest

    Ayres hatred of America is hatred for himself. D’Souza called it right when he said that Aryes inherited his wealth – Ayres is as fascinating as obama in that he projects on others and on America what he really thinks about himself. He’s smart enough to know that he sounded like a fool debating someone who actually has a clue. The discussion of Israel frankly terrifies me. And yes, the teachings of Moses are the basis of western civilization and morality. He said something ridiculous about the 10 Commandments. Thou shalt not kill is passe and unhip now I guess. The cellphone was invented in Israel, jeans by a guy named Levi. Also I guess the “scientist” guy never saw an ultrasound before. We have all this information at our fingertips, how come so many people are so unbelievably ignorant????

  • katjan68

    Let’s see if I get this right. They are trying to put D’nesh D’Sousa in jail for being a patriot and a lover of this country, and they promote Bill Ayers, for bombing a federal building and actively trying to undermine our society, to a professorship! Yeah, that sounds about right if you like an upside down world.

  • domestique

    Patriotism, Judaism, Israel, Moses, wealth, freedom, unborn babies = bad. Communism, perversion, abortion, intimidation, lying, murder, sedition, lawlessness, disarming populace, and destroying the military leaving us open to attack from Chinese = good. Do I win the debate?

  • Carmtom13

    Ayers showed exactly who he is, a student of Alinsky and if any of you read rules for radicals Ayers like BHO, Jarrett and Hillary Benghazi follow it. Alinsky was a Marxist communist. Frank Marslall Davis BHOs mentor was a communist. The msm never vetted BHO or checked his background. No they were to busy running to Alaska trying to dig up dirt on Sarah Palin, what did the media find out about her? They found that Palin was a hard working Governor.

  • Terry

    There are still some countries with red flags flying where Ayers can immigrate. Get that scum out of America.

  • aquaviva

    Awesome that you posted this full debate. Thank you!

  • johnfromjersey

    Hi Scoop. Hey, I have a question, is it possible to convert some of the videos to youtube format first? The reason is that I use an older Mac and because of my older OS, I can’t install the latest vrs. of Flash™ Most of the videos here play just fine, but if it’s the new Flash™ code I can’t watch it. Or maybe just post the audio?
    If it isn’t too much trouble. I understand you can’t please everyone, so if you can’t meet my request, I understand. Thanks for the great site (btw).

        ooops…unintended consequences…that picture is me…but when I was young and starting my own American dream and journey with my husband….I am in my late 50’s…I was still to young to pay much attention or take Bill Ayers seriously…I thought the protesters were anti American kooks back then…that would lead to nothing…I didn’t follow what the kooks were doing…just assumed they would loose steam and be over!

  • sallyjohanna

    Ayers was so dishonest, no surprise….he despises government….what he didn’t tell the kiddies was he is all for a Communist government…the opening bio on Ayers made me want to GAG!

  • Charm4sure

    Ayers, another sociopath who loves the sound of his own voice. That a university would inflict him on students as an educator should be reason enough to cut the schools funding.

    • Kathy Perilloux

      So TOTALLY AGREE!

  • Charm4sure

    After all these years of babbling the same “hate America” theme Ayers, still has to read his speech from a paper. Obama and his teleprompter come to mind. Neither has substance. D’Souza knows his beliefs and can look his audience in the eye.

    • sDee

      Ayers is intellectually bankrupt. There is no way he could actually believe any of the 50 year old hate-America propaganda he spouts.

      • Mark

        And yet he still lives here. Cuba or North Korea would love to have him. I’d help him pack his bags.

    • sallyjohanna

      He had to keep his lies straight…all though he believes them. History proves him WRONG…but that doesn’t stop him. The first time I saw Ayers take a drink of water…is when the older gentleman got the microphone and said he was not factual about Iraq…both parties sanctioned going into Iraq! Gulp..gulp!

  • Charm4sure

    Ayers wants our guns so sociopaths like him can dispense with you unless you are useful to him and his ilk.

  • Sentinel

    The 51 minute mark is the best place for me to start. That way I don’t have to hear Ayers (a documented terrorist) drone on and on with his lying, twisted views. This is great… but I hate Ayers and won’t listen to him willingly. I’m sickened that the crowd seems to back Ayers at many places. He should be in jail – long ago and for the rest of his life.

    • olddog

      He’s the perfect fit for a body bag ..in a jungle..left to ROT…45 years ago.

  • FreeManWalking

    The most offensive and assinine statement ayres said IMO was equating the Holocaust with slaves, and American Slaves in-particular like Europeans invented slavery.

    ayers equating was about an synonymous as comparing as equal evils, a man that uses oxen to plow his field with another man that Kills his Mules because the owner didn’t like its disposition or just didn’t like mules to begin with.

  • Tread7

    Bill Ayers looney leftist.

    • Clive_G

      Make that privileged spoiled brat looney leftist.

  • miltonbasshayek

    I love watching Dinesh debate. I loved when Dinesh said that there is created wealth and inherited wealth, like Bill Ayers has. Hahaha! Awesomeness!

  • phil

    to me the moment “who created the pie ?” pretty much summed it up

    • miltonbasshayek

      These filth (liberals) always begin their utopia after the foundation is laid by Capitalism.

  • Fred Savage

    Ayers, what a lying douche. He was completely anti-government and agains them but now that he’s a libtard lemming he wants everybody disarmed and the govt in control.

  • gothicreader

    Dinesh was very articulate in stating his case.

    As for Ayers, he assumption of white supremancy still exist because of “2 m of our brothers are incarcerated”, is telling. Does he delves into the facts as to why they are in jail? What has social justice done for them? I believe, and I could be wrong, but isn’t 70% of broken black families are due to the lack of unity of the family, thereby there is no structure in the home. Where are these men? It was fun making the baby, but how about taking responsibility? Their communities have failed them. An immoral country breeds an immoral society.

    Ayers attack on Dinesh about queer rights, really?

    Ayers is to caught up on the felonies right to vote due to they being suppressed? Really, so would it be okay for him to give him rights to the wacko guy in Colorado who shot up those innocent victims at the theater?

    He’s a libertarian? So, he is inline with Ron Paul?
    I didn’t know libertarians were for social justice?
    Looks to me the libertarians party has been infiltrated.

    Finally, look at what we have to look forward of our leaders of tomorrow. The schools have really done a job on them. Reminds me of the 60’s.

    And that kid calling Israel an apartheid state? Obliviously he missed his history class of the Crusades.

    I bet Dinesh is shaking head today and thinking, we’re hosed.

  • disqus_zLY0jsDmax

    Wow, two intelligent men who are both activists.They both appear to care a tremendous amount but just see things from a completely different frame of reference. I was impressed that both laud the accomplishments of different types of Americans yet they are both, essentially, praising Americans, just different types. Too bad we can’t go back to the time when we appreciated and respected differing opinions and work together to find solutions to problems using the best ideas from all sides. For that we need to learn to appreciate not only our own perspective but also the good in the opposite perspective and to admit the problems in our own. Too much to ask?

  • sallyjohanna

    Bill Ayers kept bringing up the right to vote…especially criminals convicted of felonies…does anyone know if Ayers being a convicted felon…has the right to vote??

  • ajbruno14

    Ayers is “selective” in his criticism as he embraces libertarianism. He neglected to mention any Federal agencies he would shut down, but sure the 1st he would mention is the dept of defense.

  • melanie faulkner

    Bill Ayers hates America and that is obvious. Dinesh D’Souza loves America.

  • pabofi

    • http://www.chapter19.us/ Kevin Groenhagen

      You have to travel about 90 miles west of Chicago to find what is best about America. That’s Reagan Country.

    I would have loved to hear the response if they’d asked Ayers if HE is allowed to own a gun, and then- should-he be allowed?!

    • Tread7

      ^5

      • Deborah Hallsted

        Nobody called him on his violent past, and if he’s an example of those who should have their second amendment rights taken, when he was being preachy about gun control.

  • http://www.chapter19.us/ Kevin Groenhagen

    I noticed that they danced around the meaning of “American exceptionalism” at the end. I don’t believe that either D’Souza or Ayers
    characterized that concept accurately. While Alexis de Tocqueville did
    describe America as an “exceptional” nation, the term “American
    exceptionalism,” especially after World War I, refers to the fact that
    socialism was not able to get a foothold here (at least until recently)
    as it was able to in western Europe. Michael Harrington, who was the
    chair of the Democratic Socialists of America until his death in 1989,
    included a chapter entitled “The American Exception” in his 1974 book,
    “Socialism,” that discusses this topic in great detail. I think the term
    is interpreted by many today as meaning we think we are better than
    other countries, when, in fact, it is all about our relationship
    vis-a-vis socialism. This is why Ayers, Dohrn, et. al., have
    consistently denounced “American exceptionalism” from “Prairie Fire”
    (1974) to “Public Enemy” (2013, the Dartmouth moderator mistakenly said
    2010).

    The liberty school recognizes that there are certain basic functions, such as law enforcement, which government can perform effectively.

    Ayers as a terrorist would call Mandela a freedom fighter. As someone engaged in a war with his military wing Umkhonto We Sizwe and knowing that he murdered many blacks who disagreed with his communist ideology I can only laugh at the ignorance of Ayers. Ignorance of Africa does not surprise me as he is ignorant of his own country of birth’s politics. Having said that I agree with his comments on the imperialism of the US as I felt it in Southern Africa. Why the hell are we spending billions on bases in Europe? We are not elected by the world to be ‘peacekeepers’ for the world and when did the US electorate have the authority to elect a president of the ‘world’?

    Ayers keeps using the term straw-man and ridiculous without given any facts. “Everyone knew!” except for the 18 countries who didn’t… Felons shouldn’t loose voting rights! – Self serving much.. This guy gave a great speech for his followers without facts to back it up.
