Re: What a load of crap

The Nazis were about as far-right as any political organization got in the 20th century. Surely you're not attempting to suggest that Hitler and his accomplices were liberals, are you?

The people who describe themselves as "liberals" in America are by-and-large not liberals in any meaningful sense of the word. They thoroughly resent the freedom to make money, except that they can tax it. They are properly termed socialists.

The National Socialist German Workers Party's program was a socialist program. It included the following points:

We demand the nationalisation of all (previous) associated industries (trusts).
We demand a division of profits of all heavy industries.
We demand an expansion on a large scale of old age welfare.
We demand a land reform suitable to our needs, provision of a law for the free expropriation of land for the purposes of public utility, abolition of taxes on land and prevention of all speculation in land.
The state is to be responsible for a fundamental reconstruction of our whole national education program, to enable every capable and industrious German to obtain higher education and subsequently introduction into leading positions. The plans of instruction of all educational institutions are to conform with the experiences of practical life. The comprehension of the concept of the State must be striven for by the school [Staatsbürgerkunde] as early as the beginning of understanding. We demand the education at the expense of the State of outstanding intellectually gifted children of poor parents without consideration of position or profession.
The State is to care for the elevating national health by protecting the mother and child, by outlawing child-labor, by the encouragement of physical fitness, by means of the legal establishment of a gymnastic and sport obligation, by the utmost support of all organizations concerned with the physical instruction of the young.

Where American Liberals Socialists differ from German National Socialists of the 1920s-1940s is that they tend to accept the classic Marxist definition of the proletariat (however much cognitive dissonance this may cause), rather than a Volkisch definition of the German people. Cui bono: that's the only difference between Sanders and Hitler.
