Hitler was not a leftist [View all]

National Socialism had nothing to do with what we term Socialism.

Hitler was a Fascist. National Socialism was/is a Fascist, extreme Right ideology.

Very briefly, and very simplistically:

Nazism used elements of the far-right racist Völkisch German nationalist movement and the anti-communist Freikorps paramilitary culture which fought against the communists in post-World War I Germany. It was designed to draw workers away from communism and into völkisch nationalism. Major elements of Nazism have been described as far-right, such as allowing domination of society by people deemed racially superior, while purging society of people declared inferior which were said to be a threat to national survival.


This has NOTHING to do with any gun stuff, but I just read a post made today stating that yes, Hitler was a Leftist. It was not connected to a gun OP in any way.

That is BS. Anyone who says that either really needs to study up on Nazi (even just watch the Military History Channel or read Wikipedia), or they have an agenda.

Hitler was the First Teabagger. Got that? He was extreme Right. All current Nazis also are.
