"We are socialists, we are enemies of today's capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions." --Adolf Hitler
(Speech of May 1, 1927. Quoted by Toland, 1976, p. 306)
Someone on The Left could repeat the above statement word for word and no one, in the usual leftist audience, or the media, would call them out on it. The myth that National Socialism is a right wing ideology basically originated in the the Kremlin and has continued to be repeated by those who are embarrassed about their German ideological relatives. Seriously, if The Left were seriously and openly called out on this they would either have to drop their beliefs or bust their collective backsides to rehabilitate Hitler and the NSDAP. Or they would just jump up and down and call us a bunch of liars. To those who value power over all else, no act is too depraved and no bodycount is too high. If history has taught us anything it is that those who imagine themselves to be infallible will fail. And those who imagine themselves incapable of evil will do evil. But try to tell that to a supporter of Hillary Clinton and they will call you a liar.
