The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left von Dinesh D’Souza

The Big Lie (2017) is a right-wing account of current American political events. Author Dinesh D’Souza thinks that attacks against Trump from the Left are unfair. The progressive Left claim that Trump is a racist and a fascist, and have likened him to a Nazi, but this book radically upends these accusations. For D’Souza, the American Left is recycling one big lie. It’s the Democrats who are the real Nazis, the true fascists and racists.

Worum geht's

The Big Lie (2017) is a right-wing account of current American political events. Author Dinesh D’Souza thinks that attacks against Trump from the Left are unfair. The progressive Left claim that Trump is a racist and a fascist, and have likened him to a Nazi, but this book radically upends these accusations. For D’Souza, the American Left is recycling one big lie. It’s the Democrats who are the real Nazis, the true fascists and racists.

The Left spins the big lie that President Trump and the Republicans are racists and Nazis.

Our story begins with Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis. Early in his career, Freud became aware of a phenomenon he named transference.

This is what happens when, for instance, a criminal blames his misdeeds on his victims. It’s not just distorting the truth; it’s turning the truth on its head. Put simply, it’s a big lie.

D'Souza believes that big lies play a major role in today’s politics, the worst big lie being the notion, propagated by the Left, that racism and Nazism are inherently right-wing. Even American Republicans and conservatives have started believing this.

People on the Left see racism and Nazism as ideologies of the Right, with Democrats and progressives being the historical forces of emancipation, equality and civil rights.

But the author thinks otherwise. For him, the American Left were proponents of slavery and the extermination of Native Americans. They promoted racial segregation and even opposed the Civil Rights Movement.

The author also believes that the American Left is spreading a big lie by accusing President Trump and the Republican Party of racism and fascism.

And, in his view, academia, Hollywood and the media are helping to spread it.

The left-wing author Chris Hedges claimed that Trump’s presidency was the “dress rehearsal for fascism.” Meanwhile, the Hollywood actor Ashley Judd, in response to Trump’s election, declared that “Hitler is in these streets.”

The charge of fascism has also been leveled by Democrats. The Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley even accused Trump of bringing “fascist appeal right into the White House.”

To D'Souza, the American Left is just playing the fascism and Nazi cards. It’s an alarmist and sensational way to condemn conservatism.

The author wants to show that racism and Nazism have nothing to do with Republicans or conservatives. For him, as these blinks try to explain, the progressive political Left are the real fascists.
