"Down with fascism!" screams the masked, black-clad Antifa goon squads as they riot, destroy property, assault peaceful protesters and innocent bystanders, and disrupt lectures and speaking events whenever they don't like what's being said.
Perhaps Jonah Goldberg covered most of this in his book Liberal Fascism, but it certainly bears repeating:
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.
The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left is the title of Dinesh D'Souza's new book which is available for pre-order on Amazon (scheduled release date: July 31st). I suppose it could be viewed as a continuation of his previous book, Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party wherein he argues that the Democratic Party is now, and always has been, the party of racism, Jim Crow, slavery, and misogyny. The record seriously needs to be corrected here. Also, the progressives' feeble response ("well, maybe this used to be true, but all the Democrat racists have now switched to the Republican party") is both factually inaccurate and lame.
So, too, does current progressive ideology and tactics mimic the Nazi brownshirts, however loudly they proclaim that Trump is Literally Hitler. It's a big, sticky hot mess of projection and denial, and D'Souza is forcing them to own it. And, to be honest, Republicans should've been howling about this every chance they could for the past three decades, and shame on them for not doing so. We roll our eyes at Trump's ridiculous tweets, but you know what, silence, silence in the face of continuous, unrelenting attack, is a whole lot worse.
I agree. George W. Bush took the silent approach. It gave us Obama.
