Moral Decline

Documenting The Moral Decline That Threatens To Destroy America

The Nazis & Fascism Were Not Far Right - They Were Far Left

The vast majority of people believe that Nazism and Fascism were far right political movements.

But that assumption is completely and totally wrong, and this article will explain why.

The official title of the Nazi party under Adolf Hitler was the "National Socialist German Workers’ Party".

Please take note of the word "Socialist" in that title.

The Nazis were socialists.

That is not right - that is far left.

The Nazis advocated very tight social and economic control by a big, powerful central government.

That is a far left philosophy - not a far right one.

Big government is always the desire of leftists.

Well, what about social issues?

When the Nazis came to power in 1933 one of the very first acts Hitler did was to legalize abortion in Germany.

By 1935, there were more than 500,000 abortions being performed in Germany each year.

Adolf Hitler was a huge fan of Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood.

How did Margaret Sanger feel about unborn children?:

"The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."

Hitler not only advocated abortion, but he also vigorously advanced the eugenics agenda of Planned Parenthood.

Adolf Hitler said, "The demand that defective people be prevented from propagating equally defective offspring. . . represents the most humane act of mankind."
-Mein Kampf, vol. 1, ch. 10

Hitler's obsession with eugenics resulted in the involuntary euthanasia of disabled people and the compulsory sterilization of thousands of people with mental deficiencies.

Just like the far left of today, Hitler had no respect for human life.

What about education? Were Hitler and the Nazis far right or far left?

In "The Swastika against the Cross: The Nazi War on Christianity", Bruce Walker describes how the Nazis declared an all out war against Christianity in their public schools. He documents historical facts such as the following:

-Only clergymen were permitted to teach religious classes, and those clergymen were forced to teach according to the anti-Christian instructions of the Nazi Ministry of Education.

-In the city of Wurrtemberg, when clergymen totally refused to follow Nazi teachings on religion, 700 of them were permanently banned from the classroom.

-Christian prayers were totally banned from the public classroom and crucifixes and other Christian symbols were physically removed as well.

-By 1935, the passionately anti-Christian leader of the Hitler Youth, Baldur von Shirach issued a stunning regulation that prohibited any child from belonging simultaneously to a Christian youth group and the Hitler Youth.

-Gradually membership in the Hitler Youth became almost obligatory, and parents were told that their children would not get good jobs in the civil service unless they belonged to the Hitler Youth and employers were told that they should not hire children who did not belong to the Hitler Youth.

-Christian children who did not belong to the Hitler Youth or its female counterpart were routinely beaten up by young Nazi thugs.

-Boys inducted into the Hitler Youth were required to explicitly reject Christianity by disgusting oaths such as this: “German blood and Christian baptismal water are completely incompatible.”

The following is an example of a an actual Hitler Youth slogan:

“The Faith fanatics, who still to-day slide down on their knees with faces uplifted to heaven, waste their time in churchgoing and prayers, and have not yet understood that they are living on the earth and that therefore their task is of a thoroughly earthly kind. All we Hitler people can still only look with the greatest contempt on those young people who still run to their silly Evangelical or Catholic Churches in order to vent their quite superstitious religious feelings.”

The following are actual quotes from Hitler Youth training manuals:

“Christianity is a religion of slaves and fools.”

“How did Christ die? Whining at the Cross!”

“The Ten Commandments represent the lowest instincts of man.”

“Christianity is merely a cloak for Judaism.”

The Nazi tract "Gott und Volk" was widely distributed in 1941, and it describes how the Nazis envisioned their children being raised: “With parties and gifts the youth will be led painlessly from one faith to the other and will grow up without ever having heard of the Sermon on the Mount or the Golden Rule, to say nothing of the Ten Commandments… The education of the youth is to be confined primarily by the teacher, the officer, and the leaders of the party. The priests will die out. They have estranged the youth from the Volk. Into their places will step the leaders. Not deputies of God. But anyway the best Germans. And how shall we train our children? Thus, as though they had never heard of Christianity!”

Doesn't this philosophy sound way too familiar?

Today the ACLU and other far left organizations are rabidly trying to eliminate every shred of Christianity from the public schools of America.

So are Hitler and the Nazis closer to the Left of today or to the Right of today?

It appears that the answer is completely and totally obvious.

The difference between "far left" socialism is that - in theory (though never really in practice) - the means of production are given to the people's control. In "far right" socialism - in theory *and* practice - the means of production are given to a few well connected industrialists...can you say "Halliburton?" I knew you could...

So the answer to your question "So are Hitler and the Nazis closer to the Left of today or to the Right of today?" the answer *is* obvious...and the answer is "the Right".

BTW, there are no gods, Planned Parenthood is *not* eugenics, and abortions are only a problem to churches who need a many new converts as possible to keep their income up. There are no gods, just deal with it.

So the rest of your screal is just as wrong as the main point.

Yea, and sending 18 year old men and women to kill and be killed in Iraq speaks volumes about respect for human life.

OH YEAH! They're killing and getting killed for a greater purpose.......

Damn, I don't see the difference.

What about the nazi's oppressive stance on social freedoms? That's a conservative right-wing area. Nazis were big on families and hard on homosexuals. They had strong ties with big corporations. Etc, etc. Nazis combines the worst of left and right.

Here's are some quotes right from Hitler himself about how nazism is basically a christian movement:

“Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.”
Mein Kampf

“In the first place it is Christians and not international atheists who now stand at the head of Germany. I do not merely talk of Christianity, no, I also profess that I will never ally myself with the parties which destroy Christianity. If many wish today to take threatened Christianity under their protection, where, I would ask, was Christianity for them in these fourteen years when they went arm in arm with atheism? No, never and at no time was greater internal damage done to Christianity than in these fourteen years when a party, theoretically Christian, sat with those who denied God in one and the same Government.”
Speech delivered at Stuttgart, February 15, 1933

“The anti-Semitism of the new [Christian Social] movement was based on religious ideas instead of racial knowledge.”
Mein Kampf

That last quote is extra interesting. The nazis weren't the first ones to persecute jews. They just continued a long, proud christian tradition.
