This is brilliant
so someone cherry-picked some socialist quotes from Hitler and an anti-fascist group applauded
dumb, but not fatal
well there you have it... Hitler was not just a leftie but an antifa.... rewrite the history books lads....
yeah this is the oldest trick in the book millers. Hitler certainly hated both capitalism and communism so its pretty easy to dig out a quote that people will agree with
example of righties being tricked by the same thing
They've always revered old one nut
We are Socialists, enemies, mortal enemies of the present capitalist economic system with its exploitation of the economically weak, with its injustice in wages, with its immoral evaluation of individuals according to wealth and money instead of responsibility and achievement, and we are determined under all circumstances to abolish this system!
Sounds like a run of the mill 4c lefty quote
I posted that in the hello im the shorten thread they all missed it
Its about as lefty as you can get
So Trumpistas are socialists?
I guess anything Hitler said is off limits then
"i need to take a shit"
"get a job"
People confuse right wing wifh liberalism. Nobody thinks hitler was a liberal capitalism but fascism is inherently right wing.
Its a conservative revolution
He was into eugenics that's quite a lefty thing
Is it .
Tell that to the tens of millions of corpses created by hard left governments
Im not sure of your point.
Except this was no accident. The Fabians, Sidney and Beatrice Webb and their ilk were not attracted to eugenics because they briefly forgot their leftwing principles. The harder truth is that they were drawn to eugenics for what were then good, leftwing reasons.
They believed in science and progress, and nothing was more cutting edge and modern than social Darwinism. Man now had the ability to intervene in his own evolution. Instead of natural selection and the law of the jungle, there would be planned selection. And what could be more socialist than planning, the Fabian faith that the gentlemen in Whitehall really did know best? If the state was going to plan the production of motor cars in the national interest, why should it not do the same for the production of babies? The aim was to do what was best for society, and society would clearly be better off if there were more of the strong to carry fewer of the weak.
What was missing was any value placed on individual freedom, even the most basic freedom of a human being to have a child. The middle class and privileged felt quite ready to remove that right from those they deemed unworthy of it.
I don't think it's inherently a left or right wing position. Maybe an elitist position
Hitler was such a big lefty, that he banned Trade Unions, arrested Union Officials, confiscated all Union Funds, but rather than return them to the workers, kept the funds for the Reich.
Then he set about forcing the chronically unemployed to work.
Such a big lefty....
In the economic life of the country, too, the Communist regime sought to exert control through a series of drastic measures that came to be known as war communism. To coordinate what remained of Russia's economic resources after years of war, in 1918 the government nationalized industry and subordinated it to central administrations in Moscow. Rejecting workers' control of factories as inefficient, the regime brought in expert managers to run the factories and organized and directed the factory workers as in a military mobilization. To feed the urban population, the Soviet government carried out mass requisitions of grain from the peasantry.
The second pattern [of socialism] (we may call it the Hindenburg or German pattern) nominally and seemingly preserves private ownership of the means of production, and keeps the appearance of ordinary markets, prices, wages, and interest rates. These are, however, no longer entrepreneurs, but only shop managers (Betriebsführer in the terminology of the Nazi legislation). These shop managers are seemingly instrumental in the conduct of the enterprises entrusted to them; they buy and sell, hire and discharge workers and remunerate their services, contract debts and pay interest and amortization. But in all their activities they are bound to obey unconditionally the orders issued by the government’s supreme office of production management. This office (the Reichswirtschaftsministerium in Nazi Germany) tells the shop managers what and how to produce, at what prices and from whom to buy, at what prices and to whom to sell. It assigns every worker to his job and fixes his wages. It decrees to whom and on what terms the capitalists must entrust their funds. Market exchange is merely a sham.
