I caught a LOT of flak when I said this a few years ago. You can search the archives here on the RNL and you’ll find my posts. Read the comments: I was not popular. But then, those who see the future earlier than others never are — especially when the message is uncomfortable. SO imagine how I feel now that others are finally catching up? All I can say is welcome to the party (and it’s about freakin’ time):
Let’s start out by talking about the economy. Most people tend to regard the Nazis as “far right”, but the truth is that they were socialists. By heavily taxing and spending, the Nazis were able to temporarily restore economic prosperity after the great economic crisis that occurred under the Weimar Republic, and this helped fuel their wild popularity. The following comes from Wikipedia…
In the midst of the Great Depression, the Nazis restored economic stability and ended mass unemployment using heavy military spending and a mixed economy. Extensive public works were undertaken, including the construction of Autobahns (high speed highways). The return to economic stability boosted the regime’s popularity.
Just like the Democrats of today, most people don’t consider the Nazis to have been socialists, but that is precisely what they were. I think that former game show host Chuck Woolery nailed it with some of his recent public statements…
Chuck Woolery, perhaps best known for being the host of the show “Love Connection” from 1982-94, also frequently takes to Twitter to express political viewpoints. In a recent series of tweets Woolery, 74, offered his opinion on politics, the size of government, and the political nature of the Nazi party:
“Nazi is described as a right wing organization, Yet their were Socialists [sic]. They were left. But Chuck. But My BUTT.”
“National Socialist German Workers’ Party. Nazi Party. Hitler. Need I go on?”
“Maybe better. Democrats don’t value the country. They value the power of Government. There is a difference ya know.”
Read the rest. It says everything I have been trying to warn people was coming. Now it’s here and we are STILL blind to it.
