The Lies about Antifa – from “The Big Lie”

I am continuing to share my notes from the reading of The Big Lie, by Dinesh D’Souza.

Notes from pages 16-22

  • During the Trump administration you remember that there were showdowns between the Left and Trump supporters. And the Left viewed themselves as waging an anti-fascist struggle. They called themselves anti-fascists or Antifa.
  • The Berkeley protesters were also antifa. But they are the ones who were blocking speakers from speaking on a campus. Likewise, Antifa was harassing Trump supporters, burning things, and engaging with the police. But Antifa was saying that they are anti-fascist. Yet they are acting as fascists; and the ones they are accusing as fascists (Trump and Trump supporters) are relatively peaceful. Hence what they are doing is a lie.
  • On violence. The Left says that Trump’s agenda is based on violence: the violence of wall building, the violence of deportations, the violence of being against abortion. This is a lie in itself. These things are not violent actions. They are all things that keep the peace.
  • The Left use violence as a political strategy. They say fascism (which they accuse the Right of) can only be stopped by physical force, violence.
  • The Left say that they (the anti-fascists) will stop the fascists (the Right) from speaking. They will give them no platform for debate. No free speech for the fascist Right. Of course, this is an inverted lie, a Big Lie.
  • Like Hitler has said of the Jews, the Left says they should destroy the fascism (of the Right) by any means, or else they (the Right) will destroy them. Here again we see the inverted lie.
  • Herbert Marcuse, a Berkeley professor, “argued that in order to defeat Nazism in America, it was necessary for the Left to use Nazi tactics” (p. 22). Marcuse here is calling the conservative Right “right-wing fascists.” He said, “The Left should repress them, shout them down, even beat them up or kill them” (p. 22).

Lies about Racism, Fascism, and Nazism – from “The Big Lie”

I am continuing to share with you my reading notes from Dinesh D’Souza’s book, the Big Lie. Click here to see the previous post on this subject.

Notes from pages 5-14

  • The left has managed to transfer the blame for racism (slavery, the Klu Klux Klan, etc.) from the Dem. Party to the Rep. Party. How was it done? They told lies. Lies were taught in classrooms; lies were made into movies and TV shows; lies were reported in the media as truth.
  • These lies were revealed in the book Hillary’s America—and the left was outraged.  Dinesh D’Souza noted that in 1860, the year before the Civil War, no republican owned any slaves; they were all owned by Democrats (p. 5).
  • It has come to be in this present culture that whenever someone doesn’t like what you believe in, he will call you Hitler or a Nazi. So the terms Nazi and fascism have become meaningless.
  • However, when multiple people say you’re a fascist, that makes it seem that you really are a fascist—and so the lie spreads.
  • When Trump has been compared to fascists and Nazis, they were (and are) seeking to make his presidency illegitimate.
  • What else did people do to try to convince the greater public that Trump was an illegitimate president? Did they investigate the voting records, etc.? Maybe a little; but mainly they told lies about him. They said he was unfit; some called for his impeachment; some even called for his assassination.

Update: Work, CNN, Biden’s Picks for Judge

After almost two months of no work, and also suffering from covid, I finally got some—two jobs in a row. It feels good to be back to work (I’m a painting contractor). I’m wondering how I will survive when I finally am fully retired. And it felt so good to be working, because in both jobs the people were so nice. In fact, on my second job the lady was sort of following me around talking to me. But I like talking to people, even when I’m working (I can work and talk at the same time). It shows me that people think I have a good listening ear—and that makes me feel good.

Anti-Trump Talk At CNN

On my first job (painting a bathroom and hall) the people (older people) had CNN on non-stop. It   was a little annoying, because about 80% of the talk was about Trump—anti-Trump: saying things like, that he and his supporters were guilty of the “BIG LIE.” That is the term they are using now to tell the public that when they say that the election was stole that that is a big lie.

But let me tell you something. Just saying that we are guilty of the Big Lie is evidence in itself that they are the ones lying. Also, the fact that CNN spends so much time bashing trump is also very suspicious. Yes, I believe that those at the top of CNN are desperately seeking to cover up a lie (their lies) by pushing the blame on us and on trump.

I don’t want to suggest that I know everything, but after getting my ears full of CNN for two full days, I have come to some conclusions. There is a diabolical reason why CNN is talking so negatively about Trump and his supporters and his family for so long. Here are three reasons: 1) they are trying to cover up their own lies by misdirection; 2) they are diabolically trying to convince the public that they (the press) and the Democrat party are innocent and that the election was fair (they are saying that it was the fairest election ever; what a joke); and 3) the way they are doing it is to try to convince the public that trump and his follower are the guilty ones, the liars.

I also spent some time researching a liar’s behavior. And in this case, it is the lying of an entire news company. Anyway, here is

The Typical Behaviors of Liars

  •  They are very rehearsed, that is, they are all together, saying the same things. No one gets out of step. They all use the same words.
  •  They repeat certain words and phrases over and over again for emphasis, such as “the Big Lie,” and just the name “Trump.”
  •  They talk a lot. In other words, CNN is constantly talking negatively about how Trump is lying, about how he is the cause of Jan. 6th, about his crooked business dealings, and much more—Trump, Trump, Trump. And so, what they are doing is desperately trying to relieve themselves of any guilt by pushing their guilt on Trump. And they are also trying to convince the public of this.
  •  They sound arrogant. A liar, in his effort to sound truthful, comes across as arrogant: very self-assured and extremely opinionated. And also notice how CNN news people sound so professional. I think that many of them have actually convinced themselves of what they are saying.

Biden’s pick for Supreme Court Judge

With Justice Stephen Breyer planning to retire, Biden is now making plans to elect a replacement. Who will it be? Well, since a Supreme Court judge is such an important job, we all would expect that he would want to select the most qualified person, right? And that person should be selected not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

But apparently, Joe Biden doesn’t believe that, because he has announced that he will pick only a black woman for the position.

Those Who Call Evil Good and Good Evil – From Isaiah 5:20

I have gotten in the habit reading a newspaper in the morning. I mainly enjoy reading the comics (I have my favorite ones) and maybe an article in the sports section. I always try to glean some bit of truth from the front-page news articles, but I most always go away with nothing. And I am more and more convinced that whatever they declare is true is a lie. Yes, that is the formula: whatever they say is true is a lie; and whatever they say is a lie is true. If we stick to that rule we can’t go wrong. That is the rule for these last days. Isaiah 5:20-21 and 23, says it this way:

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;

Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;

Who substitute bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,

And clever in their own sight! …

23 Who justify the wicked for a bribe,

And take away the rights of the ones who are in the right! (bold for emphasis)

Thank God what is coming in the future; the 144,000 Jewish witnesses, who will be declaring the truth during the Tribulation. In the midst of a world that is filled with lies and deception—coming from the teaching of the Antichrist, will be these truth-tellers who will provide a way for millions to hear the truth of the gospel to be saved. Revelation 14:4-5 describes them.

These are the ones who have not been defiled with women, for they have kept themselves chaste. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These have been purchased from among men as first fruits to God and to the Lamb. 5 And no lie was found in their mouth; they are blameless.

Today I think that many hardly recognize truth from what is false. The two are somewhat blended together, especially for those who don’t read their bible. But soon, after the church is raptured and after the 144,00 witnesses appear, the contrast will be remarkable. You will hear both the truth and a lie very clearly. And you will be able to choose which side you want to take. If you (who have been left behind—not raptured) choose the way of truth declared by the witnesses, you will most assuredly suffer and die (under the government of the Antichrist). But if you choose the way of lies and deception, which will allow you to be clothed and fed (because you chose to receive the mark of the beast), then you will live—at least for a few years. But in the end, you will be judged by God and cast into hell. It will be your choice.

But keep in mind that if you choose the way of truth, though you will die as a martyr, you will be resurrected in glory to live eternally with God. The way of truth, though painful at first, will reap eternal life.
