Dear Miss Candace Owens: Here are some Fun Facts about the Third Reich. [View all]

- After WWI, the democratic and the communist movement in Germany were fighting each other over what Germany's new political system would be like after the Kaiser had stepped down. The Democrats had a slim but decisive advantage over the Communists and that's how Germany became a democracy. National-Socialism was a reactionary movement opposed to this regime-change. National-Socialism was opposed to both forms of public rule, because they were disgusted by the useless squabbling politicians who negotiated the peace after WWI.

- The NSDAP was against democracy. They wanted to replace the parliament with a rule of the people, by which they essentially meant populist mob-rule.

- The National-Socialists were not Socialists.
* Their thugs, the SA, had veritable and bloody street-fights with the Communists. Hitler himself blamed the Communists for ruining his beloved Austria.
* The NSDAP was heavily supported by industry donors, who shared their anti-communist sentiment.
* Once Hitler was in power, one of his first moves was to send every single member of the communist party to jail.
* The NSDAP heavily supported privatization, cartels and monopolies and fought workers' unions.
* Once Hitler was in power, the NSDAP went on an embezzlement-spree.

- How did the NSDAP radicalize their voters? By spreading a conspiracy-theory that the globalist, capitalist Jews want to destroy Germany for whatever reasons.
Now... Evil, globalist Jews... where have you heard that before? It's a popular right-wing conspiracy-theory up to this day!
And it was invented by the Nazis in 1920s Germany.


- Germany had a bustling art-scene. Theater, music, cabaret... Political stand-up comedy was very popular in Germany at the time. When the Nazis took over, they arrested stand-up comedians as enemies of the state. FUCKING Stand-Up Comedians!

- Jews were denounced as being not proper Germans, as not being loyal to Germany and were discriminated against. As were Gypsies and gays.
And with Trump, the US now has their first President who said that jewish US-citizens are secretly more loyal to Israel than to the US.

- The courts were stacked with party-loyalists who regularly ignored all laws and procedures.

So, my dear Miss Candace Owens.

This is what Nationalism is like. These are all things that Hitler did before he even started WWII and before he started with genocide.

- sabotaging democracy
- attacking the free press
- arresting comedians
- kleptocracy, crony-capitalism and oppression of workers' rights
- accusing selected minorities of not counting as proper citizens
- systematic discrimination against these minorities
- stacking the courts with law-breaking political hacks

Do you still think that Hitler would have been a great guy if only he had not invaded other countries?
