D’Souza removed his Tweet of this photo to prevent White Board Genocide

Convicted felon Dinesh D’Souza has a new book-shaped object out titled, with typical D’Souzesque understatement, The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left. You know a book-shaped object is a major work when you can’t really find a review of it outside the Wingnuttosphere, although the Washington Post and U.S. News both did reviews of a sort — of how D’Souza’s “downward slide from proto-intellectual to internet troll” is not unlike what’s happened to the Republican Party, as the latter piece put it.

D’Souza’s “Democrats invented racism and are still at it!!!” shtick reached its full flower in last year’s Hillary’s America movie, and as the WaPo piece notes, he’s just doing the same routine again, this time with a slightly different focus:

“The Big Lie” is the latest in D’Souza’s apparently endless series of books about the “untold history” of the Democratic Party, one that he recounts by quoting the historians who’ve already told it.

Never a fellow to let a good racist murder go to waste, D’Souza responded to this weekend’s vehicular murder following a march by Actual Nazis in Charlottesville, Virginia, by posting this very important message about who the REAL fascists are. The REAL fascists were the awful Leftists left dead or critically injured when they were rammed by a Dodge Challenger driven at high speed by a 20-year-old who “really had a fondness for Adolf Hitler,” according to his high school history teacher.

So really, they were victims of their own ideology, huh?

D’Souza’s perfectly understandable impulse to sell books by using terrible violence in Charlottesville as an EXCELLENT promotional opportunity got the attention of professor and WaPo contributor Daniel Drezner, who had a very simple question for the rightwing Thought Leader:

Yes. Yes he did. And he’s proud of it. And he had other thoughts about Charlottesville and leftist racists, too!

Sadly, he didn’t explain how it is that leftist KKK and neo-Nazi people and leftist anti-racist protesters were opposing each other in Charlottesville, but not a one of the people with the white polos and khakis said they loved them some Hillary Clinton.

Also, earlier this month, to prove Democrats remain the party of old racist slave-owner Andrew Jackson — never mind that he and his Trail of Tears have fallen out of favor with modern Dems, because of both “racist slave-owning” and “Trail of Tears” — D’Souza went to the White House to promote the book with Nazi douche Sebastian Gorka and with Nazi douche Steve Bannon. That’s the Steve Bannon who praised Donald Trump’s inaugural speech as the best “since Andrew Jackson came to the White House.” Trump himself thinks Jackson was swell, though he’s a bit fuzzy on why. Trump thought Jackson, the slaveholder and anti-abolitionist, was just the guy to have stopped the Civil War, if only he hadn’t been president two and a half decades before it broke out.

D’Souza was so excited to meet the two great American opponents of fascism that he eagerly posted pictures of the visit to his Twitter account, but then removed them, possibly because Bannon called him in a panic and warned that the commies could see the Big Board. Happily, screenshots are forever, thanks to Christina Wilkie of the Center for Public Integrity:

D’Souza probably got into a fight in the War Room, too.

      Oh, he’d be fine among the pseudo-intellectuals (“India? Aryan! White!”), but I think he’d fare less well among the mouth-breathers who were sent to school and only wanted to eat the books.

    Dinesh D’Dumbfuck continues to demonstrate just what a loser felon he is.

    • SnarkON

      This is what I don’t get: His drooling conservative followers like being Nazis. They are proud of their racism. Why is he trying to foist this shit onto Democrats when conservatives think it’s a good thing?

  • beatbort

    Fuck this guy. The less we think about people like him, the more brain cells we will have at our command to bring down the Trump Machine.
    I would prefer thinking about people like Mario Savio, who said, on Dec. 2, 1964, “There’s a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart that you can’t take part! You can’t even passively take part! And you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus — and you’ve got to make it stop! And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it — that unless you’re free the machine will be prevented from working at all!”

    • Wild Cat

      Ironically, Savio grew up like me in Eastern Queens—a few miles from where the scumbag in the WH grew up.
      Not ironically, Savio was totally ignored by Eastern Queens, which was a racist cesspool back then. I had no idea where he was from until I thumbed through a Rick Pearlstein book a few years back.

  • WotsAllThisThen

    It’s really very simple. He’s saying when you look at the totality of history you’ll realize the neo-Nazis who went on a rampage this weekend are actually Obama and Hillary supporters. And obviously everyone who turned out to protest against them is Republican, just like MLK. So let’s have that new tax cut, shall we? And hurry, my extension to file is about to expire.

      Oh, good. I think I’ll pass on this one, since the title and jacket copy ARE the book. Yr Editrix even gave me a special dispensation from having to review it, possibly because she could feel my left eye twitching from several hundred miles away. I may eventually give in and see the inevitable movie (yes, it’s already in the works) out of morbid curiosity.

    I heard a lot of this over the weekend – “Democrats are the real racists. They started the KKK. They supported slavery.”
    When you try to explain how things have kinda changed since 1865, you get accused of lying or ignoring “the facts”.

  • The Wanderer

    Spreads his books out on top of other works to make it look like there’s more. Sweet Jesus in Satin Tap Pants, what a fucking piece of work.

    • insolenttomato

      Outside of my fantasy life I’ve never had a book sold so I may be mistaken, but isn’t it a bad thing if there are more books? As in, they’re not selling?

      • The Wanderer

        It can also illustrate that demand is so great that the store had to lay in extra shipments of the books.

      • TundraGrifter

        The more books on display the greater the chances somebody will purchase one of them.

    • Latverian Diplomat

      This just in: Local Costco reports hardcover book sales drop to zero. “Due to a display error, people thought we only had this one book, and let me tell you, that book is a real stinkeroo!” explained book department manager

    • Latverian Diplomat

      Not only did he do it; he bragged about doing it.

      • The Wanderer

        It betrays his depth of self-awareness.

        • TundraGrifter

          Remember – this is the guy who didn’t know he couldn’t become “engaged” to a woman who was married to his best friend at the time – and he was still married himself.

          This is the guy who was president of a “Christian” college and having an affair (please see above).

          This is the guy who managed to break Federal political campaign contribution laws in the 2000’s – do you have any idea how hard that is to pull off?

          So I must agree with you. His self-awareness is as shallow as our President’s.

    • OneYieldRegular

      And yet, a person so pathetic that he’s reduced to rearranging his own books in a local Costco still manages to get the ear of the Trump White House.

  • SnarkON

    In the spirit of brutal honesty, literally everyone who has ever written a book has gone into Barnes and Noble and/or Costco and rearranged the shelves so their book is more prominent. It’s just a thing we do. That said, D’inesh D’Whatever is still an asshole.

    • MrTusks

      B&N and Costco have somewhat different demographics. You don’t sell your book at discount wholesale clubs if you don’t have to.

      Also of note: At B&N the price for the book has dropped 40% since it released…two weeks ago. https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-big-lie-dinesh-dsouza/1125950908?ean=9781621573487#productInfoTabs

      • SnarkON

        If you’re also an author forgive me for authorsplaining…but if you’ve written a book and are lucky enough to get it into Costco, in front of hundreds of thousands of potential buyers, that is a stupendous coup. I would kill to have a book in Costco.

    • TundraGrifter

      On the other hand, when I’m someplace like an airport book shoppe and I find a particularly offensive volume I turn it around or otherwise hide it.

    Ooh! Ooh!

    When people SELF IDENTIFY as both Nazis AND conservatives how can any one say that they are liberal? It just boggles the mind!

    D’Minished D’Ranged unseemly obsession with Costco (of all booksellers!) goes back to when his previous turgid tome didn’t sell so they packed up the books and returned them to the publisher. That’s the book biz.

    His dozens of fans protested to the point where Costco brought the book back. “Censorship?” #seriously? Costco made the damn thing available in the first place. If their decision was political (as if) they simply wouldn’t have ordered it the first time.

    Of course the book didn’t sell the second time, either. Those few who complained to Costco management had either already bought it or couldn’t read it.

    • k9feline

      My own take on Godwin’s law is that the reason it’s normally unfair to compare people to Nazis is that the Nazis were a successful political movement that got people to vote for them by speaking out on a wide range of political issues. Thus one could claim to be in favor of certain issues (like gun control and lowering unemployment) that Nazis also claimed to favor, without being or admiring Nazis.

      My own rule of thumb is that it becomes fair and reasonable to compare people to Nazis when what they have in common with Nazis (like hatred for all non-whites) is why being compared to Nazis is an insult.

    Real question here. I have a loved one who insists that the Nazis were socialists because it’s in their name. He also won’t listen to me about the Southern Strategy, so us Dems are responsible for the KKK, etc. What are the best texts for him to read (since he won’t listen to me) that are scholarly and yet easy for his Brietbarted brain to absorb? He’s had his mind changed with facts before, so I do hold out hope for him.
    Suggestions?

        Thank you everyone. It’s hard, because we agree on so many things, but this Trumpism shit has brought out the worst in him.

    • TundraGrifter

      I’ve read that Hitler was very upset by that and wanted to change the name. He was told the brand had already been established and it was too late.

      You could always mention to him that the Nazis were given to euphemism or lying when it suited them. “Arbeit macht frei” and all that.

      But in my experience, this isn’t a fact-based issue. It’s emotional. They need to believe that the Nazis were left-wing because otherwise they’d have to realize right-wing extremism is as bad as any other kind.

      I loved The Nazi Seizure of Power, a book by William Sheridan Allen. I read it in a modern European History class at UNC and our professor was a since reformed member of the Hitler Youth. The book does an in depth analysis of the people joining the Nazi party in a single German town in the 1930s, and the driving factor was a fear of socialism/communism.

      • MizzMazz

        Thank you for that.

        • COtter

          You may want to read it yourself first. It was a very detailed and thorough analysis of the growth of the Nazi Party in one town, Northeim, from its inception to its occupation by the Americans. When your professor wore lederhosen and carried a panzerfaust instead of wearing a polo shirt and carrying a tiki torch it drives home the point. Basically, the Nazi party expanded by playing to middle class fears of a socialist takeover.

    “My name is Pearce Tefft, and I am writing to all, with regards to my youngest son, Peter Tefft, an avowed white nationalist who has been featured in a number of local new stories over the last several months,” he wrote in a letter to North Dakota-Minnesota news site Inforum.

    Tefft’s father said his son “did not learn” white nationalist rhetoric “at home” but attended the rally Saturday in Charlottesville, where he “was interviewed by a national news outlet while marching with reported whitenationalists.”

    “We have been silent up until now, but now we see that this was a mistake. It was the silence of good people that allowed the Nazis to flourish the first time around, and it is the silence of good people that is allowing them to flourish now,” he wrote. “Peter Tefft, my son, is not welcome at our family gatherings any longer.”…

      I would say that you must be talking about the wingnut parallel universe, but in that universe Trump couldn’t be a leftists, because the leftists are the “badguys” and Trump is a “good guy”

    Ten bucks says when D’Minished went to the White House he only brought one copy of his book. He didn’t give it to anybody (or else he’d already inscribed it to Mr. Trump) – it was just a prop.

    • JustPixelz (((Ω)))

      Or for ten bucks you can get ten copies of his book when it goes “on sale” in a few weeks.

      • TundraGrifter

        A penny for his thoughts would be a gross overpayment.

    • CriticalDragon1177

      Wouldn’t be surprised if he gave one to Trump though, since he probably thinks his nonsensical arguments could help Trump win the next election. Trouble is through that even if he could somehow convince mainstream Americans that fascists were leftists, it would really upset his alt right supporters that now Trump was openly attacking fascists and fascism.

      • TundraGrifter

    Doktor Zoom,

    Maybe you guys should do a Sunday’s with the Christianists post where you debunk some of the biggest lies from Dinesh D’Souza’s propaganda book. I would be willing to bet that most of his arguments are just as pathetic as this.

    • Wookie Monster

      Debunking all of Dinesh D’Ouchebag’s lies would taken another whole book.

      • CriticalDragon1177

        He doesn’t have to debunk all of them, just some of the more egregious ones, would be enough to discredit him and show him to be the laughing stock that he is.

        • Wookie Monster

          If debunking lies discredited wingnuts, Fox would be airing nothing but a test pattern 24/7.

          • CriticalDragon1177

            If we just get some of the fence sitters, its better than nothing, and who knows, it might help prevent Trump from getting reelected, especially if the Democrats do something really stupid come the 2020 election.

  • John Thorstensen

    Back in the 80s at Dartmouth Dinesh was an editor of the Dartmouth Review, which also included Laura Ingraham. The Dartmouth Review was an incubator for far-right talking heads; if I recall, Colbert’s on-air character’s biography had him going to Dartmouth and graduating in the 51st percentile of his class. The Review has since faded into the background — as far as I can tell, no one pays them much mind any more. They overreached when they compared a Jewish President of the college (James Freedman) to Hitler. He let them have it with both rhetorical barrels to great effect; this after years of pussyfooting around on the part of the administration. This earned him a standing ovation at the faculty meeting.

    • Bitter Scribe

      Also, didn’t they do an over-the-top offensive parody of Ebonics that earned them a punchout by some black faculty member?

      • John Thorstensen

        If I remember they basically invaded the classroom of a black ethnomusicologist and I think he got a bit physical. I don’t think anyone punched them for the ebonics thing, but it was as vile as you might imagine.

    In one of his silly books (and movies) D’Minished D’Ranged claimed Mr. Obama was raised by an “anti-colonial” father.

    Now, who do you know who is (or was) “pro-colonial?” The Tories during the American Revolution, of course. Perhaps the French in Algeria or the Belgians down in the Congo. Or the Spanish when they came to the New World and wiped out the locals with slavery and disease.

    • Cat Cafe for the Prosecution

      That was one of his most utterly idiotic statements ever. His father, a Kenyan, was anti-colonial because he was against BEING OVERRUN AND OVERRULED by an outside colonial power.

I forget who said it, though it might have been Carl Sagan, but someone cogently observed that playing fast and loose with the truth, even in archaeology and ancient history, which some might not think is all that bad, still kind of is, because what if the next unprincipled liar who comes along should be peddling “a war or a social scapegoat?”
