    His party affiliation was with the National Socialist German workers Party. During his reign as Reich Chancellor and as Furher he set into motion many programs that centralized government,redistributed wealth,nationalized banks and industry,regulated pay,controlled media,controlled firearms,youth indoctrination programs and had cabinet members who were concidered "radicals" by many. Sound familiar? Definitely left wing! firearmsyouth indoctrination programs cabinet members concidered radicals sound familiar wing

    And he rallied the masses!

    Fascism,, is a political ideology that seeks to combine radical and authoritarian nationalism with a corporatist economic system, and which is usually considered to be on the FAR RIGHT of the traditional left-right political spectrum.

    I am going with "neither" for the simple reason that I think right-wing, left-wing labels are a hoax and a smoke screen. Technically, Fascism is generally considered right wing, whereas socialism and communism are considered left wing. But right or left is not the real issue. The point is totalitarianism. Hitler, like many so-called leaders today, was a totalitarian dictator tyrant. Nothing more.

    The Nazi party stressed the failure of capitalism, communism, and the failure of democracy, so it is neither.
    However Hitler had totlitarian rule in Germany.

    Totalitarianism is a political system where the state, usually under the control of a single party or faction, recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible... it is generally characterized by citizens having no significant share in state decision-making and ideology
    "Totalitarian regimes or movements maintain themselves in political power by means of an official all-embracing ideology and propaganda disseminated through the state-controlled mass media, a single party that controls the state, personality cults, control over the economy, regulation and restriction of free discussion and criticism, the use of mass surveillance, and widespread use of state terrorism."

    He believed the state was the final authority and citizens duty was to the state. He took away any identity except the state. So he was an socialist where he needed government's central power over the people but he hated the equality implied by communism. Either way, I'd say he was way left of center.

    "We are socialists, we are enemies of today's capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions." --Adolf Hitler

    Liberalism and the Advent of the Nazi State

    July 8, 2006
    For years, “progressive” liberals in our country have painted the National Socialist government of Hitler’s Germany as a “right wing” fanatical cult led by Hitler and his ilk. Is this true? Were the Nazis “right wingers,” as the liberals have charged so vehemently during the past 60 years or so? Could it be that Nazi ideology was actually based on American…liberalism?

    From what I’ve learned during a lengthy period of research has led me to believe that German Nazism did not evolve as a right wing perversion of capitalism, as “progressive” liberals would have you believe. Instead, Nazism evolved out of the “enlightened” and “progressive” socialist and collectivist ideas of the post World War I era. National Socialism most certainly did not appear on the scene as a perversion of conservatism. Quite the contrary! National Socialism is a direct result of progressive liberalism!

    National Socialism after all, was socialism. That the Nazis adopted and took to the extreme the dirty little secret of American liberalism, that being eugenics, is soft-pedaled by our modern day “progressives” and conveniently forgotten today. Hitler learned much from American liberals, and they in turn learned...

    Liberalism and the Advent of the Nazi State

    July 8, 2006
    For years, “progressive” liberals in our country have painted the National Socialist government of Hitler’s Germany as a “right wing” fanatical cult led by Hitler and his ilk. Is this true? Were the Nazis “right wingers,” as the liberals have charged so vehemently during the past 60 years or so? Could it be that Nazi ideology was actually based on American…liberalism?

    From what I’ve learned during a lengthy period of research has led me to believe that German Nazism did not evolve as a right wing perversion of capitalism, as “progressive” liberals would have you believe. Instead, Nazism evolved out of the “enlightened” and “progressive” socialist and collectivist ideas of the post World War I era. National Socialism most certainly did not appear on the scene as a perversion of conservatism. Quite the contrary! National Socialism is a direct result of progressive liberalism!

    National Socialism after all, was socialism. That the Nazis adopted and took to the extreme the dirty little secret of American liberalism, that being eugenics, is soft-pedaled by our modern day “progressives” and conveniently forgotten today. Hitler learned much from American liberals, and they in turn learned much from him!

    For most of the life span of American and British liberalism, eugenics was a key dogma to which liberals adhered. Liberals were and still are to a great extent, anti-Semitic. They had little use for Jews in the 1920’s and 30’s, and have little use for Jews today. They won’t admit this of course, but the facts speak for themselves. Up until the 1950’s liberal eugenicists were castrating the feeble minded, the racial misfits (make that black Americans) and other “social inferiors.”

    Webster defines eugenics, “as a science that deals with the improvement of hereditary qualities of a race or breed.” American and British liberals were very much into this science up and to the end of World War II, when Nazi extremes made it impossible for our “progressive” liberals to continue their eugenics dogma. Hitler learned much from American liberals. He put it into practice and created the death camps for Jews and other “inferiors.”

    “Conformity will be the only virtue and any man who refuses to conform will have to pay the penalty.” Who said this? Was it Hitler, or Göbbels? Was it Göring, Hess or Von Ribbentrop? It was Woodrow Wilson, an icon of modern liberals and an idol of many of our State Department’s highest-level officials!

    When Wilson assumed the presidency in 1913, he came to Washington with a “progressive” liberal agenda. Naturally, he held our nation’s business and industry in contempt. He looked around and saw Republican influence and set about to change the course of things. One of the situations that extremely disgusted Wilson was that the Civil Service offices in Washington DC were integrated. Since the time of the Civil War, black Americans had worked side by side with their white counterparts and co-workers. Wilson changed that, and brought “Jim Crow” to the nation’s capitol. He had the races separated.

    Adolf Hitler was hot and cold with Woodrow Wilson’s ideas. On the one hand, he detested Wilson over the Versailles Treaty, but on the other hand he admired Wilson’s racial views and his enthusiasm for eugenics. After all, Wilson had reversed the more tolerant policies put in place by earlier Republican administrations. Racism was very much a part of the “progressive” movement in the early 20th Century. Wilson envisioned a segregated future for the United States. Modern day liberals want to whitewash their early origins and pretend that racism was a Republican phenomenon opposed to the truth of the matter. History is often times most revealing. After all, Margaret Sanger, one of the founders of Planned Parenthood, lionized by feminists, progressives and other leftists fully intended to limit black propagation through abortions.

    During the 1924 Democrat Convention, the Ku Klux Klan was very much a part of the equation. The Klan was entangled with the “progressive” movement and the 1924 convention was often referred to as the “Klanbake Convention.” I might add that at no time, did the Republican Party ever endorse the KKK. Not so with the Democrats however. Only the Democrats can claim a former KKK Kleagle, that being Robert “Sheets” Byrd of West Virginia, still in the Senate today. The guy that liberals will tell you is the “conscience” of the Senate. Isn’t it interesting, that a Senator can be racist, bigoted or a philanderer and an abuser of women, maybe even a rapist, yet get a “pass” as long as he’s a “liberal” democrat?

    Abortion has long been a staple of American liberalism and the “progressive” movement. Feminism, the cornerstone of the abortion debate became active in the first half of the 20th Century. Eugenics was also a part of the Feminists movement, and Margaret Sanger, an early day “feminist progressive” and mentor of the vaunted Betty Friedan, a founder of NOW, praised Hitler and his movement for his many “progressive” platforms expressed in the National Socialist movement.

    Today, there is a general consensus that eugenics is loathsome. Yet 1930’s liberals were soul-mates of Hitler and the Nazi movement. They shared Hitler’s view that Jews were racially inferior people, and our “progressive” liberals opposed efforts to allow German Jews to immigrate at a time when they were being rounded up and murdered by Hitler’s butchers. It was our liberals, our leftists, our “progressives” and feminists who were the Nazis' most vigorous supporters. Feminists pointed at examples such as Hanna Reitsch, Hitler’s favorite test pilot as an example of how modern societies should look to women for science and engineering greatness. It was not our American conservatives. Hitler’s friends in America were almost solely liberal and leftists.

    “If we go forward we must move as a trained and loyal army willing to sacrifice for the good of a common discipline, because without such discipline, no progress is made, no leadership becomes effective. We are, I know, ready and willing to submit our lives and property to such discipline because it makes possible a leadership which aims at a larger good.”

    Does this sound like a quote from Hitler? Is this a quote from some other Nazi’s speech? Hardly! This is a quote from Franklin Delano Roosevelt, delivered at his first Inaugural Speech to America in 1933. Hitler could not have said it better. Roosevelt’s comments were and still are, mainstream fascism. Yet Roosevelt (as is Wilson) is a primary liberal icon. Roosevelt set the course for “progressive” liberals to follow. They continue to follow the path laid out by the number one “progressive” liberal of the 20th Century. The most revered, the most honored, the most cherished of all “progressives.” Jimmy Carter, another revered “progressive” is somewhat behind Roosevelt though no less anti-Semitic.

    At the same time, FDR was not one to disappoint racists in his day. General George S. Patton, often vilified by the left, was the first to recognize how ridiculous segregation of the armed forces was. In 1944, while driving by a replacement depot in France, Patton noticed a large number of black soldiers sitting around doing nothing. He inquired as to why. The replacement depot commander told him that although the men were trained artillery, armor and infantry soldiers, there were no black units that needed replacements at that time. Patton exploded and ordered the officer to send the men forward to replace depleted ranks in his 3rd Army divisions.

    As it was unheard of to send black soldiers to a white unit, the news of Patton’s orders didn’t take long to reach Washington. President Roosevelt personally belayed the order, and no further posting of black replacements to white units occurred during World War II.

    The progressive movement in the United States is a direct cornerstone of National Socialist Germany, and is also responsible for the origins of the holocaust, which engulfed Europe 68 years ago. “Progressive” liberalism also can boast that the movement enabled Hitler to launch World War II. No doubt the most preventable war in history, “progressives” refused to deal with Hitler in the early stages, as he was on the same plane as they were. Even when the Germans attacked Poland in 1939, many “progressive” liberals continued to openly support the Nazi cause.

    Had Hitler decided not to invade the Soviet Union in 1941, it’s likely that the Nazis would have triumphed in Europe, with the tacit approval of our nation’s most revered and intellectual “progressive” liberals. Liberals only woke up and realized how insidious the Nazi threat was, when their all-time idyllic nation, Communist Russia was attacked. Liberals never broke with Hitler over his belief in eugenics, nor over the FINAL SOLUTION he arrived at for Europe’s Jewish population. Not until it became politically correct to do so. The “Big Lie” of the Nazis being “right wing” continues to this day. However, scrutiny of history reveals the truth.

    As Ann Coulter has so eloquently illustrated in her new book, “Godless,” liberalism is a religion. Attacking liberal religious beliefs is to invite vicious, hate-filled counter attacks. Liberalism is about as tolerant of other views as is Islamism. Liberals have proven their “tolerance” for my beliefs and views as evidenced by the tirade of anti-Semitic, hateful and vicious comments I received after writing my last article for NMJ.

    The truth always is hurtful and hateful to the vast majority of American leftists. This article will open a series of vicious reprisal emails. I’m braced for this already. I haven’t even begun to attack our American leftists’ belief system in regard to the “peaceful nature of Islam.”



    “Progressives” are not open to debate for the most part, as they know their ideas cannot compete with conservatism. Liberal ideas simply make little sense if any. Most is no more than psychobabble! Our nation is today, suffering the results of years of liberalism and now, political correctness is coming back to haunt us.

    The United States has once again been forced into war. However, modern “progressive” liberalism and “political correctness” have tied our hands to the point where we don’t dare define just whom our enemies are. Our nation’s leaders beat around the bush, hum and haw and come up with slogans such as “war on terror,” or “war against terrorists” or other such nonsense. We are at war with Islam. Our enemies currently are Iran and Syria for certain. These two enemies supply the terrorists in Iraq, these two enemies are training them and these two enemies are fielding them!

    Unless we as a nation first define what the enemy is, and who the enemy is, and declare war on our enemies accordingly, we are not likely to achieve victory in this war. If we are to suffer a liberal president following the 2008 Election, it’s unlikely that the United States will have any chance at all of winning the war.

    For any kind of peace to follow this worldwide confrontation, one side or the other must win. The winning side must insure that an absolute defeat is a result of their efforts. Our Islamic enemies fully understand this very simply concept and are prepared to pursue such a defeat…of the United States and all others.

    Our enemies are in this for the long haul. There is no expectation in the Islamic World for an end of the war come Friday evening, so that the championship game next weekend goes on as scheduled, with no interruptions for any breaking news events created by some inconvenient war.

    Sadly, our liberal Democrats and their close allies in the mainstream media continue the “progressive” agenda. Seemingly, that’s support for our enemies and disdain for our allies. Liberals and the MSM have a particular closeness to the Palestinian Authority, Hamas and other “progressive” organizations that stand firmly against our only true ally in the Middle East, tiny Israel.

    The ghosts of Hitler, Göbbels, Lenin, Stalin, Arafat, Atta and others are pleased. The stench of modern “progressive” liberalism, combined with her twin sister “anti-Americanism,” is a sweet odor to their “progressive” nostrils. However to me, it’s an odor more foul than the average boulevard in Paris.
