Man Tries To Say Nazis Were Socialists—It Didn’t Go So Well

Right-wing journalist Ian Miles Cheong decided to try the Internet's patience by trotting out something many right-wingers do when they find themselves being compare to Nazis:

Mike Stuchbery, a teacher and writer who's had enough of the return of Naziism, stepped in to set the record straight:

The full name for the "Nazipartei" was the "Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei," or "National Socialist German Workers' Party," set up intentionally to mislead middle- and lower-class workers.

"Nazi" is short for this misnomer, leading to the misconception that the Nazis were socialist:

Once they had lured in voters, the Nazis swiftly took full control over the German people. Democracy died in Germany.

True socialism does not accept any one party or person as the supreme leader, but rather turns to the demands of the group to govern.

Hitler sacrificed socialism by declaring himself Führer, an inherently fascist concept:

Is fascism starting to sound alarmingly familiar to anybody else?

What does this mean for our future?

Maybe this time we can learn from history and trust people, like Mr. Stuchbery, who warn us to travel in the opposite direction.
