Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza recently debated Obama’s old pal Bill Ayers, the former Weather Underground terrorist.
When the subject of criminal justice came up, things got very interesting.

D’Souza Destroys Bill Ayers Over Criminal Justice Inequality
The question was, “Do either of you feel our criminal justice has become too political?”
Ayers, clad in a “Black Lives Matter” T-shirt, began saying, “Our political justice system is a catastrophe and what was exposed in Ferguson that the criminal justice system is powered, the financing of it, is powered by the targeting of poor people.”
“One of my sons is a public defender in San Francisco,” Ayers continued. “He deals with poor people everyday who are run through the system for the most petty things and they absolutely are caught up in a vice that really steals from them and purrs along in an oppressive way.”
Going more personal, Ayers called out D’Souza’s prior felony political donation, saying politics can be bought and sold to the highest bidder. He mocked the conservative, who spent one night in jail after his arrest, saying at the time, he offered to write the judge on behalf of D’Souza to spare him from prison and instead send him to North Carolina and register voters “which would fit the crime of corrupting the political process in New York,” Ayers said.
D’Souza reared back and let Ayers have it:
The inequity of our criminal justice system is on full display right on this podium right here. So, I gave $20,000 of my own money over the campaign finance limit, I got eight months in overnight confinement. You bombed the Pentagon and tried to bomb all kinds of other things. [wild audience applause] How much time did you do in the slammer?
