    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!

    He's right. Rockefeller was that way back before it was uncool.

    You know who else supported the 'New Germany'? Prescott Bush, father of Poppy Bush, grandfather of W.

    So was Charles Lindberg (which is a German name anyway), who was fascinated by the Nazi Eugenics program before it became the justification of the Holocaust. He supported Hitler.

    All of these men were nonetheless good men, they were just misguided because at the time, they never could've imagined that they were dealing with someone who was so evil that he would be responsible for a war that would cost 50 million lives.

    People can be easily fooled, if they want to believe. Doesn't make them bad. Only sorry later.

    Ford was an anti-semite as well. Many people were after the turn of the 19th century, and this is why the jews were pursecuted and no one wanted to get involved. No one really knew the depths of what Hitler was doing and what they did know, they chose to ignore. That is what made it so horrible.
    My point is that our government, our president, and other presidents in the last decades of the 20th century, are not like Hitler. Those that compare should be ashamed.

    I'm not so sure - Stalin, Lenin, Castro, Mao, even Chavez, they were or are all of the Marxist/Sociallist mold, and honestly believed - however misguidedly - that their brand of Communism would make the world a better place, that it would improve the lot of man. They were wrong, but each to his own extent - Lenin, definitely, Stalin, not so much! - honestly believed that their way would change the world and make it a better place.

    But as for Mussolini, and especially Hitler, they were a different kettle of fish.

    In the first place, Mussolini was a member of the Fascist Party, the political party founded by the big-money men and industrialists of Italy in reaction to the Mafia, the Sicillian organized crime syndicate known as la Cosa Nostra in America; they were called the 'Fasci' which is unsurprisingly where the word Fascist comes from.

    While the true Socialists were of the Far Left, the Fascists were of the Far Right, intolerant of other views, dedicated to totalitarian control over their societies, and not the least bit interested in anything except conquest and empire. A good expression for them might be taken from Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek: "WE ARE KLINGONS!"

    Fascists like Il Duce and Der Fuhrer were not reasonable men, because reason threatened their security as dictators. The best way to deal with a Fascist, especially a Nazi, is the same way, the only way, you deal with a mad dog - you get a gun and you shoot him.

    It was only called 'Socialist'! Hitler piggybacked his own brutal regime on the NSDAP (National Socialist German Workers' Party) when he joined the organization after infiltrating it while serving in the Weimar Republic's Army in the 1920s. After he put his own people in place and rose to power, he and his cohorts (like Ernst Rohm, for example) kept the name to attract people who wanted to be with the people of power in a time of crippling depression. 'Socialist' was like a lure, but it was really a trap!

    Hitler only used the term socialism because he thought that it was a right-wing ideology and also was equal to aryan/german nationalism:

    'NATIONAL' AND 'SOCIAL' ARE TWO IDENTICAL CONCEPTIONS. It was only the Jew who succeeded, through falsifying the social idea and turning it into Marxism, not only in divorcing the social idea from the national, but in actually representing them as utterly contradictory. That aim he has in fact achieved. At the founding of this Movement we formed the decision that we would give expression to this idea of ours of the identity of the two conceptions: despite all warnings, on the basis of what we had come to believe, on the basis of the sincerity of our will, we christened it ''National Socialist.

    Mussolini was head of the REPUBLICAN fascist party and Allatoya Khomeini founded the Islamic REPUBLICAN party. See the problem with your argument....the Nazis were certainly Rightwing.

    BTW: The founders of Hugo Boss, Puma, Adias etc. were all members of the National Socialist party.....were they socialists too?

    There were right-wing elements to Hitler and some fairly conservative sorts of people among his followers, but on the whole, I cannot see how anyone can call Hitler a right-wing guy. From his background, political testament and the state he created I do not see how the man can be considered, on the whole, to be of anything other than the political left. He was no friend of monarchy, wanted all class differences abolished, legalized abortion (for non-Aryans), banned smoking, instituted gun control, was a fervent environmentalist, a vegetarian and hated organized religion in favor of a nature-based spiritualism.

    Nazi Weapons Act of 1938 (Translated to English)

    Classified guns for "sporting purposes".
    All citizens who wished to purchase firearms had to register with the Nazi officials and have a background check.
    Presumed German citizens were hostile and thereby exempted Nazis from the gun control law.
    Gave Nazis unrestricted power to decide what kinds of firearms could, or could not be owned by private persons.
    The types of ammunition that were legal were subject to control by bureaucrats.
    Juveniles under 18 years could not buy firearms and ammunition.

    With the lefties forcing gov't run healthcare, you can be assured that in time, 6 million people will die as a result of inferior genes. So, Hitler was Left-wing.

    A perfect example of circular reasoning!

    If what you say is true, tell me, why do people who live in Canada and Europe have longer lifespans?

    Gotcha!

    How is that circular reasoning? Why do the people I know personally who live in countries with UHC have horrible issues with the smallest of ailments? Canadians have the same life expectancy as Americans because Canadians come here for their healthcare. As for Europe, the difference in life expectancy can be attributed to the difference in the number of obese people. Americans are fatter, so logically we would be unhealthier thus having the lower life expectancy. That has nothing to do with the healthcare, just the personal care. Did you really write 'Gotcha!'?
  • Johnny-O 1regmom 2009/11/01 20:19:52
    Johnny-O
    'Circular reasoning' in that assuming that 6 million Americans will die from bad healthcare will logically indicate that from that, Hitler must have been left-wing! One has nothing to do with the other!

    For what it's worth, I DO like your avatar, from 'Monty Python's Holy Grail', am I right?

    :) Yeah, that's the movie. I was being semi-sarcastic. I don't actually consider our current gov't to be like Hitler. More like 1/16 Hitler. Obviously they aren't going to directly kill millions of people. However, my friends tell me of the healthcare in their countries, and I feel I can safely say that as a result of UHC, eventually (it may take a while) millions will die as a result of this new legislation. People who are genetically predisposed to certain ailments will in a sense die of inferior genetics. When people can't see their doctor for months after the symptoms start, one has to assume that in a lot of cases, people will die waiting to be seen, then treated and medicated, etc.
