Not with the same degree of misunderstanding that you and your friends have applied to it, no.

I had my doubts that you truly are an academic, but you've pretty much cleared that up.

The few times I have advanced this idea of the Nazi's being the German party of the leftist socialists here in FR I have been shouted down and shown the errors of my thinking.
This Article makes my heart sing.

The New Underground: How Conservatives Conquered the Internet.

Sounds like a fascinating book. How long does it take to write something like that?

many thanks to both for your comments, which are both correct and clearly aware of the enormous ignorance we have about the general history of this issue. By way of note, I was once one of those who had been brainwashed into accepting that fascism was a cancer of the extreme right; it wasn't until about 2 years ago that I was able to liberate myself of this lie.

Nevertheless, far too many people still accept the lie that fascism and nazism are children of the right. For my part, I can proudly recount here that since my liberation - literally Veritas vos Liberabit - I do not hesitate to counterattack any leftist who calls the right - or me... - a fascist.

Almost all their reactions - being comfortably accustomed as they are to seeing a conservative immediately slip into defensive mode when they launch this standard attack - are slack-jawed when I simply point out to them, "no, you're the fascist; fascism and the nazis... ie, national socialists are from your side of the ideological divide". I tell them to read their history (they're not used to being told what to do by a rightie, either... tough cookies, eh?) and come back to me when they've brushed up on the facts. They never do.

Here's to the Truth, Gentlemen, and to more souls discovering and firmly announcing it.

"This is a risible misreading of Marx's essay. Marx was a Jew. He never advocated liquidating the Jews. And Marx never linked Jews to capital because it Marx's era they weren't linked; they were linked to usury, not capitalist commodity production. In Marx's era most of Europe's Jews were poor and confined to ghettos; they lived in the margins. The "Jewish question"--and many authors of the era addressed the so-called "Jewish question"--was how would the newly founded nation states of Europe integrate the Jews into political life? Assimilation would buy the Jews equality, but it might also mean extinction for the Jews as a unique people. Etc., etc.

I am no Marxist. And I have no intention of defending Marx. But we do ourselves no service as conservatives when we get our facts wrong or misrepresent our adversaries."




There is nothing about Marx to defend. Hitler was not bright enough to come up with his plan to play "god" without the foundation laid by those of the mind of Marx. I have no clue what Marx being Jewish has to do with his writings and ideology. Each person is accountable for their own deeds and Marx has much to answer for, as each individual that follows his creed.

Honesty which is what you are seeking need cover all acts and people and stop this one up-man-ship of not placing responsiblity because of ones race, religion, or gender.
