"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. In The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left, 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."--Jacket.

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?

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.

The low reviews of this book come from individuals who fallaciously state that the author's arrest and conviction make the contents of this book untrue. The fact of the matter is that this book is well-sourced regarding the origins of fascism as a socialist movement and its parallels in modern progressive ideology. Additionally, one of the comments directed individuals to read about (paraphrasing), "Soros hatred reveals right-wing antisemitism," but, as it happens, George Soros, though Jewish, was a Nazi collaborator, and openly spoke of his collaboration in an interview on 60 Minutes that can be easily found on YouTube. To say that the right wing, which strongly supports Israel, is antisemitic is as ridiculous as saying factual contents of a book are untrue because the author has a criminal history.
To speak more on the book, rather than the poor reviews of the book, this work is well-sourced. It is historically and factually accurate, and easy to read. It makes information the progressive and liberal establishment have tried to hide available for any and all to read. To ignore this book is to risk allowing fascism to take power in America. A must read for any who care about their country, their family, and freedom.

Very worthwhile read. Well researched by a highly credentialed author and educator.
Wish everyone would read it. Most especially the brain dead minions on the left.

This book is itself a perfect example of the title: a big lie. If you believe the author, D'Souza, a convicted felon, you'll believe anything. Global warming isn't happening, it's a Chinese conspiracy... Anything. Instead of wasting your time on this book, google "Soros Slander Reveals Anti-Semitism at the Heart of the Far Right" Apparently, the next best thing to a Hitleresque big huuuge lie is the projection type lie - where you claim your enemy is the very thing you really are. The claim that liberals are fascists or nazis is ridiculously far out and just a way to draw attention away from the fact that big and important components of the author's party - so big that Trump felt he couldn't afford to disavow them - are fascists and nazis.
