Publisher's Summary

The explosive new book from Dinesh D'Souza, author of the New York Times best sellers 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 Fascist Left In America

This is an incredible, poignant read. It moves effortlessly from historical precedence to the fascist beast that exists today not in the halls of conservatism but in the warp and woof of the American Left and its progressive movement. This book is not theoretical in nature. It is not a thesis or theory of the Nazi and Fascist connections to the American Left's progressive movement. It is a heavily documented and factual treatise of a historical movement that was created by the American Left and utilized as a basis for the developing Nazi and Fascist ideologies. The work is full of verifiable facts, not lucid conjectures.

The contradictions and methodology of the Left are laid bare in the light for all to see. It thoroughly explains why the Fascist Left point their fingers at conservatives and scream, "Fascist!" The "Brown Shirt," "Black Shirt" thuggery of the American Left's progressive movement is a staple of Nazi and Fascist ideology and the inaction of the political Left to stop these intimidation methods is the proof one needs to identify the true Fascist in American politics and government.

Excellent counter narrative

This book examines many of the issues people have with modern progressives but may be unable to articulate. The pervasive shutting down of all voices that are not in agreement with whatever we are told is the 'correct' view is wrong. Any moderate or centrist needs a dose of counter narrative to balance the modern media message. D'Souza provides it.

This was a real eye opener. The progressive left has much to answer for.

like a stake to the heart

This is an important book for people to read regardless of their political leanings. Like previous books by D'Souza, there are hits and misses, but where he hits he hits hard. I feel the misses are an inevitable side effect of the writer's thinking style: his strengths are that he sees links between things that are usually not noticed by others, and that he has the tough-mindedness to spell out these logical trains of thought in an articulate and dramatic way. The result is often productive creativity, but when he misses it is by a mile. The biggest miss here I think in this the link drawn between abortion and Nazi science, which I think even charitable readers from the centre or left will find unconvincing at best. Such aspects can be distracting from the more important themes. The biggest hit of the book, in my opinion, is that the essential characteristics of National Socialism and fascism are actually the same as those found in communist/socialist ideology more generally. This point is made well and buttressed by a detailed discussion of these movements intellectual histories and helps highlight the essentially fascistic tactics used/endorsed by the likes of antifa and much of the ideological intelligentsia.

informative read ... !!

it was a bit academic in parts but he does a good job with lots of stories and quotes from history backing his thesis and it's nothing short of mind blowing. Recommended
