    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    Actually, they called themselves socialists mostly within the context of creating a master race that wouldn't be divided by social classes. Not because they cared about creating a society where workers regardless of who they were controlled the means of production. It's kind of like people who say they're in favor of freedom & liberty, and then turn around and support a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage. Or people who say they're against authoritarianism and then turn a blind eye to police brutality.

    What's next, eugenics was a rightwing movement?? If you're going to be a lefty at least don't be ashamed of your movements past! You clowns need to find someone that doesn't know history, and nooo Chomsky history doesn't count.

    Actually I dont feel the majority of liberals are "evil" at all. 90+% of folks I know are not liberal even though they vote dem! Most people who vote left aren't leftist at all, they just genuinely dont understand it a philosophical war. Most people I personal know who vote dem are really conservative both fiscally and socially.

    How in heaven's name did you get that idea from my post? If anything, my post explained that their concept of "socialism" was restricted to solidarity entirely dependent on the race of the individual. In short, they were "socialists" in so far as they believed that the white race (and the white race alone) would better benefit from a generally classless system.

    However, this classless system didn't include things normally associated with socialism. For example, most socialists agree with the foundational framework laid out of by Marx in The Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital. Though they disagree on major details with communists: for example socialism believes in each receiving according to what they do, communism believes in each receiving according to their need.

    Furthermore, Nazi Germany's views on "socialism" were not only critical of Marx, they entirely redefined the ideas he laid out. Hitler's views on the matter:

    Quote Originally Posted by Mein Kempf p. 60
    The Jewish doctrine of Marxism rejects the aristocratic principle of Nature and replaces the eternal privilege of power and strength by the mass of numbers and their dead weight. Thus it denies the value of personality in man, contests the significance of nationality and race, and thereby withdraws from humanity the premise of its existence and its culture. As a foundation of the universe, this doctrine would bring about the end of any order intellectually conceivable to man. And as, in this greatest of all recognizable organisms, the result of an application of such a law could only be chaos, on earth it could only be destruction for the inhabitants of this planet.
    Wait... Hitler, the socialist... saying Marx, the father of socialism would bring about the end of man? That can't be right. Wait... there's more:

    Slowly fear and the Marxist weapon of Jewry descend like a nightmare on the mind and soul of decent people.

    They begin to tremble before the terrible enemy and thus have become his final victim.

    The Jew’s domination in the state seems so assured that now not only can he call himself a Jew again, but he ruthlessly admits his ultimate national and political designs. A section of his race openly owns itself to be a foreign people, yet even here they lie. For while the Zionists try to make the rest of the world believe that the national consciousness of the Jew finds its satisfaction in the creation of a Palestinian state, the Jews again slyly dupe the dumb Goyim. It doesn’t even enter their heads to build up a Jewish state in Palestine for the purpose of living there; all they want is a central organization for their international world swindle, endowed with its own sovereign rights and removed from the intervention of other states: a haven for convicted scoundrels and a university for budding crooks.
    In short, Hitler thought Marxism and socialism (as practiced by the only other socialist nation at the time - the USSR) to be nothing but a Jewish conspiracy to oppress the true socialism that he was presenting.

    - He wasn't interested in worker's rights. He actually banned trade unions and strikes in Nazi Germany. Trade Unions and Nazi Germany
    - He wasn't interested in taxation as a means to ameliorating any social issues. In fact, he decreased taxes. Hans-Joachim Braun, "The German Economy in the Twentieth Century", Routledge, 1990, p. 83
    - He was neutral when it came to big business. He saw it as a passive observer for the most part:

    "Hitler's failure to follow up vigorously on the entree he had gained to the business community through his Industry Club speech tends to substantiate the hypothesis that he sought merely to neutralize big business, not to bring its leaders actively behind the NSDAP or to exploit its financial resources for his party."
    The picture of the relationship between German big business and the Nazi party which Turner provides us is one that reveals how little big business had to do with the party's success. In Republican Germany, the big business community was a loosely organized, politically ineffective interest group that was held together primarily by its opposition to the growing menace of Sozialpolitik, that is, the modern welfare state. Its political dealings were mainly with the so- called bourgeois parties of the center and right the DVP (Deutsche Volkspartei), the DDP (Deutsche Demokratische Partei), and the DNVP (Deutschnationale Volkspartei). However, the general disdain big business had for the republican form of government, a government that jeopardized the privileged position it once held under the defunct Imperial order, precluded any serious attempt to use the system to its advantage, a system where "votes, not money" were the determining factor in political success.
    In short, Hitler didn't bother them. They didn't bother them. Weird thing for a socialist to do. If anything, the only other self declared "socialist" entity at the time and those that followed went an entirely different route. In Russia for example, private enterprise was nearly wiped out by the 1920s. Why not in Nazi Germany? In Cuba, the first thing the country did was create unions for groups of all sorts of professions. Why did Nazi Germany do the opposite? Well, the answer is obvious. In the German context, socialism was being redefined to meet the calls for white supremacy. The Nazis basically gutted the entire concept of socialism and simply applied the label to their beliefs about solidarity amongst whites independent of what nations they were born in.

    Anyways, I hope you have enjoyed this history lesson.

    Does liberalism contribute to the issues this woman demonstrates?

    LOL. I can imagine the reply to the above post....

    ....but,but,but...the name of the party was 'National Socialist'!"

    It reminds me of Spinal Tap. 'But this amp goes to 11.'
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
