Dinesh D'Souza is an Indian-born political commentator and documentary-maker renowned in the US for his zealous, outspoken support of conservative, right-wing political interests, and for his scathing critiques of the progressive Left and the Democratic Party. He writes from the perspective of a committed evangelical Christian, and deploys an impressive - if arguably tendentious - array of evidence in his cause.
In this eye-opening book, D'Souza draws links between the political manoevres of the Democratic Party and those of the fascist Nazi regime of Hitler's Germany. He turns on its head the frequent charge that conservatives - and in particular Donald Trump - have been encouraging the spread of fascism, claiming that it is in fact the Democrats who are the real Nazis, engaged in an insidious campaign to discredit the US Right. D'Souza calls this 'the big lie', using Hitler's infamous observation about the gullibility of the masses.
D'Souza presents President Trump and his supporters - many of whom are evangelical Christians - as unjustly maligned and entirely innocent of the charges typically aimed at them. He depicts the US Left as a fascist-inspired, anti-free speech, anti-capitalist, anti-religious liberty, pro-violence juggernaut intent on implementing a truly ruinous agenda.
Whatever one makes of D'Souza's contentions, this book offers an alarming insight into the tribal polarisation and fierce hatreds that are currently tearing apart the social fabric of Donald Trump's America.
