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.

Actions speak louder than words.

I am no lover of Donald Trump but at the same time I am deeply suspicious of the political correctness and bullying tactics of the American left. This book clarified for me why Democrats have been so tolerant of Obama’s drone missile attacks on other races and Hilary’s support for invasions of other countries but so intolerant of other people’s right to free speech. It explains why progressives appear to use the same fascist tactics that they claim to hate.

Brilliant, but disapointing.

Superbly researched, written and read.
This book turns the weaponised pejoratives, Fascist and Nazi, back on those who habitually use them.

It provides a detailed overview of the ideologies behind the communist, socialist and fascist movements of the last century.
Dinesh explores distinctions between them and the contemporary manifestations of these belief systems.

I found the comparisons between concentration camps and the slave plantations daring. It occured to me that the workhouses were a kind of precursor. However, the author failed to link the huge prison population in the US, due to the phony "war on drugs" and mandatory minimum sentencing that Reagan ushered in. With almost 1% of the US population incarcerated and millions working for a few cents an hour, this is a modern version of slavery on a scale only comparable to the prison population of China.

While discussing Woodrow Wilson and the progressives, D'Souza neglected to mention the Technocratic movement that had popular, intellectual support around that era.
He also failed to point out how Smedley Butler averted a fascist coup in the US that was being instigated by Prescott Bush, a republican.

My problem with this book is its polemic, two party, good against bad, false dichotomy. This is far too simplistic. Gary Allen’s explanation of the left, right delusion in 'None Dare Call It Conspiracy', is far more liberating.
Although the author does list the tenets of small,  decentralised government, that facilitates genuine diveversity, he appears to be disdainful of Hitler's distinction between parasitic capitalism and free market, production. The Soros type, are a very different breed of capitalist to the Henry Ford type.

Having said that; given the constraints of the  existing political system, conservatives rallying behind Trump may be the best chance The USA has of avoiding a truly fascist coup.

But I remain concerned that such books serve to  widen the political rift and risk civil war. Honest conversation may encourage well meaning democratic voters to question their allegiance. This book however, is probably too much of a partisan, republican club, to be much use in winning over conscientious people.

Disagreeable Dave. March 2018.

Historical

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

Most important book of our generation

I bought the physical copy a few months back, but only made it thru the first few chapters. Decided to download the audiobook to power through it and wow. This is easily the most important book of our generation. Exposes the left for what they are. Fascists and useful idiots.
