Re: What a load of crap

the NSDAP did not hope for the abolition of capitalism

They were against the free market. All socialists are about state capitalism, no matter how that could be achieved—and key industries were indeed nationalized by the NSDAP. And Adolf never abolished the welfare state; the Allies abolished the NSV and other socialistic departments of the central government.

In addition, there is also this very socialistic stuff:

  1. We demand the nationalization of all trusts.

  2. We demand profit-sharing in large industries.

  3. We demand a generous increase in old-age pensions.

  4. We demand the creation and maintenance of a sound middle-class, the immediate communalization of large stores which will be rented cheaply to small tradespeople, and the strongest consideration must be given to ensure that small traders shall deliver the supplies needed by the State, the provinces and municipalities.

  5. We demand an agrarian reform in accordance with our national requirements, and the enactment of a law to expropriate the owners without compensation of any land needed for the common purpose. The abolition of ground rents, and the prohibition of all speculation in land. . . .
  1. In order to make it possible for every capable and industrious German to obtain higher education, and thus the opportunity to reach into positions of leadership, the State must assume the responsibility of organizing thoroughly the entire cultural system of the people. The curricula of all educational establishments shall be adapted to practical life. The conception of the State Idea (science of citizenship) must be taught in the schools from the very beginning. We demand that specially talented children of poor parents, whatever their station or occupation, be educated at the expense of the State.

  2. The State has the duty to help raise the standard of national health by providing maternity welfare centers, by prohibiting juvenile labor, by increasing physical fitness through the introduction of compulsory games and gymnastics, and by the greatest possible encouragement of associations concerned with the physical education of the young. . . .

Quite socialistic, yes? Of course, since the USSR characterized stuff like the New Deal as "right wing", they and those who think like them could characterize stuff like that as "right wing" without even stopping to think.
