I don't usually plug books other than my own, but this latest work by Dinesh D'Souza is worth giving exposure to.
THERE IS A FASCIST THREAT IN AMERICA, BUT IT’S NOT TRUMP.
The Big Lie is an explosive new book from Dinesh D’Souza, author of the #1 New York Times bestsellers Hillary’s America, America, and Obama’s America.
What is “the big lie” of the Democratic Party? That conservatives—and President Donald Trump in particular—are fascists. Nazis, even. In a typical comment, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow says the Trump era is reminiscent of “what it was like when Hitler first became chancellor.”
But in fact, this audacious lie is a complete inversion of the truth. Yes, there is a fascist threat in America—but that threat is from the Left and the Democratic Party. The Democratic left has an ideology virtually identical with fascism and routinely borrows tactics of intimidation and political terror from the Nazi Brownshirts.
To cover up their insidious fascist agenda, Democrats loudly accuse President Trump and other Republicans of being Nazis—an obvious lie, considering the GOP has been fighting the Democrats over slavery, genocide, racism and fascism from the beginning.
Now, finally, Dinesh D’Souza explodes the Left’s big lie. He expertly exonerates President Trump and his supporters, then uncovers the Democratic Left’s long, cozy relationship with Nazism: how the racist and genocidal acts of early Democrats inspired Adolf Hitler’s campaign of death; how fascist philosophers influenced the great 20th century lions of the American Left; and how today’s anti-free speech, anti-capitalist, anti-religious liberty, pro-violence Democratic Party is a frightening simulacrum of the Nazi Party.
Hitler coined the term “the big lie” to describe a lie that “the great masses of the people” will fall for precisely because of how bold and monstrous the lie is. In The Big Lie, D’Souza shows that the Democratic Left’s orchestrated campaign to paint President Trump and conservatives as Nazis to cover up its own fascism is, in fact, the biggest lie of all.
The big lie is now back, and this time it is about the role of fascism and Nazism in American politics. The political Left—backed by the mainstream of the Democratic Party—insists that Donald Trump is an American version of Hitler or Mussolini. The GOP, they say, is the new incarnation of the Nazi Party. These charges become the basis and rationalization for seeking to destroy Trump and his allies by any means necessary. The “fascism card” is also used to intimidate conservatives and Republicans into renouncing Trump for fear themselves of being branded and smeared. Nazism, after all, is the ultimate form of hate, and association with it, the ultimate hate crime.
In this book, I turn the tables on the Democratic Left and show that they—not Trump—are the real fascists. They are the ones who use Nazi bullying and intimidation tactics and subscribe to a full-blown fascist ideology. The charges that they make against Trump and the GOP are actually applicable to them. The self-styled opponents of hate are the actual practitioners of the politics of hate. Through a process of transference, leftists blame their victims for being and doing what they themselves are and do. In a sick inversion, the real fascists in American politics masquerade as anti-fascists and accuse the real anti-fascists of being fascists.
IN “THE BIG LIE,” D’SOUZA REVEALS
⬝ Why Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler admired the Democratic Party (and why the fascists and National Socialists identified with the progressive Left)
⬝ How Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger inspired Nazi racial theorists
⬝ How leftist philosophers have intentionally (if covertly) promoted and justified Nazi tactics and the fascist ideal of the all-powerful centralized state
⬝ Why the anti-free-speech, anti-capitalist, anti-religious-liberty, pro-violence, pro-abortion Democratic Party is a national socialist (Nazi) party in everything but name
⬝ More than a book of arresting analysis, D’Souza shows how to begin the work of denazifying the American Left
D’Souza’s The Big Lie, his most compelling and shocking book yet, is required reading for everyone concerned about the American Republic.
FROM THE INSIDE FLAP
The American Left is pushing a big lie right now—that President Donald Trump, the Republican Party, and conservatives are a fascist threat. That threat is so grave, the Left tells us, that it justifies violent “anti-fascist” protests, the shouting down of conservative speakers, and demands (that started even before he was sworn in) for the impeachment and assassination of the democratically elected president of the United States.
But, as best-selling author Dinesh D’Souza points out, the “big lie” is actually the reverse of the truth: the Republican Party has always been the party of small government, political liberty, and economic freedom. In stark contrast, it’s the American Left—both in ideology and tactics—that is rooted in fascism and Nazism; and its thuggery, censorship, and intimidation tactics are part of a deliberate effort to subvert the democratic process just as Hitler and Mussolini did.
