"Of course, everything [D'Souza] says here is accurate... But it's not going to sit well with people on the American left who, of course, are portraying themselves as the exact opposite of all of this." --RUSH LIMBAUGH

The 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.

It's a worthwhile read to comprehend how history past and recent can be cleverly twisted to support ideology, in this case right-wing extremist ideology. I recommend that anyone seduced by D'Souza's logical fallacies polish their critical thinking skills by reading other thinkers with more balanced and centrist views like, and and aggregators like that skewers absurdities on both sides.

Those of you, who view Mr. DaConJob..(or is it..Mr. DaGrifta..?)...I would venture to argue, have a limited understanding of history, politics, propaganda techniques, "methods of persuasion,"..."class struggle,"..NOR..the well-orchestrated WAR..against, this country.
That is really depressing, and is an indication...of how professional these propagandists have been. PROBLEM same folks,,,regardless of how or BELIEVE the outright lies, and NONSENSE DaGrifta, Beck, Hannity, Coulter, etc...have saturated YOUR MINDS with..for are absolutley unaware, that much of your rage, fear, "internal disgust," with "the WAY things are,"...YOU FOLKS...have allowed...and continue to do so...HAVE ALLOWED...yourselves to CUT YOUR OWN THROATS.

Here is ONE example...(easily comprehended)..".Dinesh D'Souza: My pardon is dangerous to left's ideology" ANYONE with even a limited capacity to the Title alone...the purpose of the discussion...
BUT..DO...THINK...(more critically) LISTENING TO THIS COMMENT (from DaGrifta himself)..:
""...I (DaGriftra)..came to American..with $500...blah, blah, blah.."
OUTRIGHT LIE...Did anyone on the "real news team" CHALLENGE THIS LIE?..before Ms Ingraham (another propagandist)..."reacquainted herself with her fellow alumnus from..Dartmouth"?

FACT:..This is DaGrifta's background: "...His parents were Roman Catholics from the state of Goa in Western India, where his father was an executive of Johnson & Johnson and his mother was a housewife.."
NOTE: "1.55% of population in India are Catholics.... "elitists MAYBE"?
DaGrifta is paid VERY well..and has created a MARKET for his skilled propaganda ...RIGHT-WING, elitist,, heard and seen by MANY of you...
He is what is commonly called a "provocateur"...THAT IS..HIS JOB..."...a person who provokes trouble, causes dissension, or the like; agitator...."GASLIGHTING, deception, distortion...OUTRIGHT LIES...are merely several methods DaGrifta..and his ilk.

By all mean..argue, deny, defend,..or COMPLAIN to the Library staff...but DO "thinking this garbage," is important reading,"...IS an Indication of how well you folks have been MANIPULATED.

"Projection" is when you attribute your own shameful or unacceptable thoughts and feelings to others.

More propaganda for the uneducated right wing nuts. It is truly amazing how many idiots out there still think Dumpy is working for them and cares about America. If you think Dumpy is a "stable genius" after you have listened to him "speak", then you my friend are an idiot.

Cruising by to point out that FDR-is-like-Hitler comparing, Medicare-is-a-death-camp discussing, George-Soros-was-a-Nazi-collaborator-at-14 theorizing, Democrats-are-like-Nazis-and-communists-AND-the-KKK contending, convicted felon author Dinesh D'Souza has 11 works at the Vancouver Public Library. This is one more than Herodotus, and only four less than Edward Gibbon. And only if several editions of Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire are counted as separate books. Because who DOESN'T need more books likening Donald Trump to Abraham Lincoln?

I want to learn more about Dinesh brilliant desertation style of writing and this would be interesting to read his take on this subject.

Clearly this author never took a polysci class yet loves to rewrite history to spew libertarian far right wing propaganda garbage. Fascism is a right wing ideology Not left wing.

this is not you may expect from the smart author in our world yearning to have really smart diagnosis
what is the worse annoying about that book is that having the case that declaring Trump as fascist, racist, xenophobe is overused - the guy himself is operating exactly the same way using demagogue
He ridicule himself - as person who was born and raised in country affected by both: fascism and communism I can tell that he is an "i" word. His history is so messy ...
this is unacceptable when person, who maybe righteously pointed out to leftist(?) Democrats mistakes right away is going down 3 more levels or so

The whole source of his misinterpretation lies in it that of course Hitler was not plain right-wing and probably far away from, the same with Stalin , he was not plain left-wing and far away from (Bolsheviks were his first victims) . That's a cancer , who grow up because of big fascination of "scientific" knowledge about race, classes etc.
Of course there are plenty of similarities between communism and Nazism or fascism if you wish, but then it is no link to US Democrats.
To be honest, I can imagine that Democrats accuse Trump of fascism is stupid, but then Souse defeat them in the field of stupidity even more. So my impression in total is that US got stupid President and also stupid writers .

The rabid liberals have no idea they are being taken advantage of and being lead down the garden path. The Democratic left in the United States is virtually identical with fascism and has borrowed tactics of intimidation from the Nazis. Is this what you want our country to be like? What ever happened to freedom, liberty, and the American way? The American way is changing, and not changing in a good way. Read this excellent book and be enlightened.
