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.

Well Researched

I found the book to be very well researched. The author takes the reader on a detailed journey through history and provides solid comparisons, plus future recommendations for Republicans. Admittedly, it got a little dry in some parts but it was packed with info.

A much needed history lesson

As relevant to society as it is omitted from academia. This book is a damning account quantifiably proving the kind of people who get the most leverage out of calling others nazis as far more fascist and racist in their forming than any other political ideology.

Cynical and contemptuous of his readers

Given that anyone who has a three digit IQ or knows anything about history or about current events or who could pass a freshman writing course or construct a coherent argument (all qualities I have to assume the author possesses) would easily see the utterly transparent incoherence of this book’s argument, I can only conclude that the author believes that his readers lack these qualities and has chosen to exploit that ignorance and stupidity to sell books and/or advance his agenda. He clearly thinks many of his fellow conservatives are unable to spot an incoherent argument when they see one. That he has sold so many books suggests that he’s on to something.

Good but not his best.

Exposing the Nazi roots of the American Left is a worthy task. Jonah Goldberg already covered much of this ground in his book, "Liberal Fascism."

While I like D'Souza very much and admire his courage, this book did not quire reach its goal. Worth reading but I recommend it be read in conjunction with Goldberg's and with many of the writings of David Horowitz, especially "Unholy Alliance."

Broken toys need a home

The face of evil shifts form, but the underlying fundamental elements remain the same: a desire and quest for power via deception of reality and ruination of basic moral codes of honor that gave light and life to civilization. The left collects the logically defective, easily seduced in to launching themselves neck deep into any nonsense that they 'feel' to be a good (predictive reasoning? psh, as-if). Their inability to mentally recognize the abhorrent deceptions that enslave and guide them on paths of evil, easily identified once removed, has the potential to drive all of civilization into pure choas as history easily verifies. Same errors, different epochs, the left always lose, save the destruction their ideas result... Is mankind really this ignorant? The left: Hold my beer. Enjoyed the 'let's not talk about that' historical realities. If it wakes just one, it can change the future. God bless you Dinesh.

Every Democrat should read and TRY to debunk.

Please use CREDIBLE, UNBIASED sources, which I admit are lacking severely now that our education and media systems have been fully indoctrinated into your party and for which is all based on vast lies, however, look at older works. Tje truth is out there and its not on your TV or reddit or twitter. Dont be their sucker!!!

I wish Dinesh was the reader.

I wish Dinesh was the reader. However the book was very informative and I have some things to look up for myself now. I remember about 10 years ago, I was trying to figure out the definition of fascism and Fascism. To my dismay, there was so much crappy information that all I could figure out was 'some sticks bundled together' to make something stronger. Like rope is a bunch of strings. Politically, I came to imagine it started out like Be Pluribus Unum. When I asked 'well informed people' I would get blank stare, or, 'It's terrible', or That was Mouselinni, not Hitler. But a couple years ago I saw AntiFA come on the scene, I thought it was supposed to mean Anti First Amendment. When I found out it was supposed to be Anti Fascism, I could not believe it. I thought to myself "this is the exact conduct I learned about in WW2 history, black shirts and brown shirts." Of course it is pretty easy to see how all kinds of people have been changing history and changing word meanings all along mankind. For example if you are anything about individual freedoms, then that means you are now a RIGHT WING NATIONALIST, homophobe, bigot, rascist, bla, bla, bla. It also occurred to me that the left is using playground 'girl rules' that change during the game. But the older I get the more I see that the left has been using 'girl rules' as long as I've been alive. When cable TV was new, I watched CSPAN and saw the house debate first hand and it became obvious that I've never seen it before. Someone else has been telling me what to think about the congressional deliberations. And more importantly, the news has been telling me what to think all my life. This was the moment when it sank it. Freedom is about free individuals. And the convoluted Constitution may be more genious and perfect than anything written so far. They flipped it around. Here is what the goverment MAY NOT DO. It's brilliant. Yet the most power hungry seem to find their way in mock these protections of the individual liberty as old fashioned silliness. For the left, this is not a war of ideas. It is a war for power. I feel sad for good hearted liberals that have to find out their leaders are fallible humans and sometimes flat evil. When I listen to this book I fully understand how so many people don't really want to know everything. It's painful. We are monkeys with a glimmer of hope. And this is the best glimmer so far. When I listen to his book I wonder how have we lasted so long with freedom. I pray to God that we can keep freedom alive. On this 75th anniversary of the WW2, I am 53 years old and history gets closer and closer. At my age now ... WW2 just happened a little while ago. When I was a child WW2 was just old time movie stuff from a million years ago. We need to be careful with this precious gift of freedom and guard it very deliberately against the muddy waters of changing history and changing the meaning of words. Excellent digging and thesis on Dinesh's part. Maybe God needed him to be in jail for 8 months of night, so he could get his head clear and then continue on with his challenges to the big lies all around us. Go Dinesh. Congratulations on the full pardon. You can vote again. And keep on writing.

Historically Accurate, Informative and Brilliant!!!

Dinesh D’Souza is one of the most brilliant people in the 21st century. He rivals Thomas Sowell, Walter E. Williams and Rush Limbaugh. The research he does to document his statements is thorough. I am old enough to have lived through a lot of the things he discusses. He is so factual! I highly recommend this book for everyone who seeks the Truth. Go Dinesh! You are a great man for bringing the Truth to Light! God Bless you and your family in all you do. Your Avid Listener, Gail

Meretricious Hack Work

If I could give it minus 5 stars I would. The Big Lie is an appropriate title: one big lie after the other. It’s a nauseating read, I wish people were smart enough to know that this is the writing of a dangerous liar whose goal it is to undo democracy

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.
