Found this very factually satisfying! The depth of evidence that he presented really drew me in.

Dinesh’s best yet. So well researched, air tight. I don’t agree with all of his conclusions. In particular the conclusions reached about slavery, some of the points reached by Thomas Sowell in “Black Rednecks & White Liberals” I found more convincing and in conflict with Dinesh’s. But this is small beer. Overall brilliant.

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

A wonderfully narrated book. Full of surprises and evidence that show how the left have, and continues to use clever tactics and sleight of hand to hide their racist and violent deeds. The left wield the iron hand (in a silk glove) and this is the wake up call to action

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.

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
