The real socialist party in Germany back then was called the Social Democratic Party of Germany.
The Nazi banned the party in 1933, and jailed members or sent them to concentration camps
If the Nazi were truly socialist, they would have aligned with, or assimilated that party, but they couldn't because the two parties were almost diametrically opposed.
Hitler did start with a socialist view. Every German would be able to own a Volkswagen - translated as people's wagon - and he started infrastructure to help restore a destitute Germany. Then he went took Germany to the dark side.
The famous poem by Niemöller goes,
"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Socialist....."
Yeah, sounds like the Nazis really supported socialism.
You know, I was going to basically say the same things as Stuchbery! ...No, really but Wow o Wow ... one of the best lucid explanations ever ....
My high school history teacher tried telling our class the Nazi party was socialist. After many arguments with him, many of my assignments went "missing." After the school year, he lost his job.
Thank you for this. I am continually amazed at how ignorant so many Americans are about the differences between communism, fascism and socialism. Infuriating...one would think they could read a book or two , or at least google the three terms.
People still don't understand "socialism". Every form of government has socialist programs, public works, fire department, EMS, Police, transportation, roads, bridges, your water, your sewer, street light, parks etc. People rarely think of these socialism program, they take for granted but they sure complain about all the "social services" for the poor, the elderly, the sick. Socialism is taking care of you family, your neighbours, your community, your city, your state, your country, everyone who can contributes does and everyone benefits. Instead of blaming the poor, the sick, the elderly and immigrants blame the REAL tax evasion experts, Corporations, the wealthy and Trump.
So why is this Asian fellow supporting a white supremacist ideology that would subjugate him? Does he think the Nazis will allow him to hang around because he supported them?
Buck up butter cup, Canada, UK, EU, Australia and New Zealand are democratic socialist countrys only America practice Cannibalistic Capitalism.......And free trade is a direct chalange to Americian Monoplies because of third party desput mecanism to settle involving disputs .....
Maybe somebody ought to tell Ian Miles Cheo that he's not exactly white and he should be careful that he doesn't end up on the wrong end of the rope next time he goes to a lynching.
