watermelon. green on the outside red on the inside
I know that it is popular for many conservatives to talk about the greens being the new reds, but this is simply untrue. Communism was based on humanism, not environmentalism. Nazism is the far better comparison precisely because they actually incorporated a serious green agenda into the Third Reich in the early to mid 1930’s. Nazism is based on Nature. Even their racism was rooted in Nature and ecology (see especially www.rmarkmusser.com for a synopsis of what this is all about). On the other hand, Communism is based on humanism and economics. In other words, when reds become green, they are actually moving toward fascism away from Marxism, something which many Germans did in the early 20th century.
