Nazism was heavily into nationalism and racialism, things liberals aren't known for. You don't see liberals claiming the idea of a master race, they embrace multiculturalism. And I can't tell you the number of times conservatives have accused liberals of "blaming America first". Doesn't sound like the right believes the left is patriotic, much less nationalistic. The Nazis also openly and vehemently opposed homosexuality and miscegenation and believed in strict gender roles for men and women and; again, things liberals aren't known for. Gun rights were actually expanded from where they were during the Weimar Republic, unless you were a German Jew of course. Socially, they were about as right-wing at the time as you could get.

Economically it gets very hairy. Hitler espoused socialism and the Nazi Party was quite anti-capitalist... and anti-communist, but a lot of his rhetoric against those economic systems was a tool to spread antisemitism because he believed that the Jews were behind them or something . Hitler did support private property and economic competition... but only if it helped to better serve the State. The Nazis spoke at great length on praising the working man and labor unions, even making May Day a paid national holiday, but also banned strikes and sitouts. Kind of like capitalism encased in a socialist dome I suppose.

Really when you think about it, then name is a bit of a giveaway, National Socialist German Workers' Party. You've got words that both the righties and the lefties liked at the time.
Who said anything about NAZIs..

All NAZIs my be national Socialists, but not all NAtional Socialists are NAZIs.


Yes, NAZIs spoke highly of Labor unions, UNTIL they came to power...

Then what happened to the labor unions. they went the way of the Stormtrooper (Google Night of the long knives)

Well, please show me countries not run by old white people that are good places to live.
Start with Africa and see if you can find any that you'd move to for a higher quality of life, but many of thse places WERE really nice places to live,
back when the white old men did run them.
Now they are just stinking cesspits of despair where little children kill, rape, and torture without constraint.

Are you working for the Ministry of Truth now TN, redefining words and concepts?

National Socialism is Nazism, and I defy you to produce a definition that says otherwise.

Comparing modern liberalism to nazism pushes the definition of "ridiculous" to new heights.

Yes Nazis are national socialists... But all national socialist are NOT NAZIs..


Just as all Communists are Socialists, not All Socialists are communists

Why is it All or nothing, This shows a little na´ve thinking.

NAZIs are national socialists.. that were of the party of Hitler in Germany during the 1930s.

Liberals of today are national socialists, follow the platform but, they are not NAZIs, and this is Not Germany of the 1930s.

Going by the few here, liberals today are Marxists of varying stripes.

But indeed not all national socialists are Nazi's.

Obama is a weird amalgam of Marxism and crony capitalism.

Crony capitalism IS national socialism

Liberals (GOP or Democrat) are national socialistic in their ideology.
