Little did I know that I would finish reading Dinesh D’Souza’s book, The Big Lie, in a Starbucks in Seville, Spain. It speaks to the power of the author’s spell to keep me reading instead of exploring the wonders of the Andalusian jewel city. But we are not dealing here with any book. This is D’Souza’s valiant attempt to remind us that we are dangerously misled by our political discourse and cultural assumptions and that if we don’t do anything to defend classical American values we may lose the country to a movement whose goal is to implement nothing less than a fascist agenda. Yes, you heard that right. Fascism. That movement is not the Tea Party or the alt-right; it is the Left, which is closely associated with the Democratic Party.
