>> Conservatives have often been called Nazis by the left. Pretty hilarious considering they have far more parallels <<

Most liberals are ignorant of history and actually THINK the NAZI Party platform was "right wing" when they were actually advocating left-wing socialism. It's sort of like some of the freepers here who have been brainwashed into thinking the Democrats were the "true conservative party" prior to FDR (the liberal media claims this so they can insist all the bigots in the 'RAT party were "conservative") Of course, those of us who have actually studied various leaders from the 1920s and so forth know the GOP was far more conservative than the 'RAT party, which had been run by corrupt labor unions and socialist kooks since the late 1800s. Anyone who thinks Wilson, Bryan, Altgeld, etc. were "more conseravtive" than Coolidge, Taft, Hanna, Cannon, etc. needs their head examined.

And anyone who thinks the NAZI party platform was "right-wing" (except perhaps on immigration) needs a dose of reality. Here's some of the things the NAZIs stood for, in their own words:

We demand the union of all Germans in a Great Germany on the basis of the principle of self-determination of all peoples.

We demand that the State shall above all undertake to ensure that every citizen shall have the possibility of living decently and earning a livelihood...

All citizens must possess equal rights and duties. [the first sign of liberalism is demanding "equality" but then discriminating and opressing the "rich" and "priviliged]

All personal profit arising from the war must be regarded as treason to the people We therefore demand the total confiscation of all war profits.

We demand the nationalization of all trusts.

We demand profit-sharing in large industries.

We demand a generous increase in old-age pensions.

We demand the creation and maintenance of a sound middle-class, the immediate communalization of large stores which will be rented cheaply to small tradespeople, and the strongest consideration must be given to ensure that small traders shall deliver the supplies needed by the State, the provinces and municipalities.

We demand an agrarian reform in accordance with our national requirements, and the enactment of a law to expropriate the owners without compensation of any land needed for the common purpose. The abolition of ground rents, and the prohibition of all speculation in land.

We demand that ruthless war be waged against those who work to the injury of the common welfare. Traitors, usurers, profiteers, etc., are to be punished...

We demand that Roman law, which serves a materialist ordering of the world, be replaced by German common law.

In order to make it possible for every capable and industrious German to obtain higher education, and thus the opportunity to reach into positions of leadership, the State must assume the responsibility of organizing thoroughly the entire cultural system of the people The curricula of all educational establishments shall be adapted to practical life. The conception of the State Idea (science of citizenship) must be taught in the schools from the very beginning. We demand that specially talented children of poor parents, whatever their station or occupation, be educated at the expense of the State.

The State has the duty to help raise the standard of national health by providing maternity welfare centers, by prohibiting juvenile labor, by increasing physical fitness through the introduction of compulsory games and gymnastics, and by the greatest possible encouragement of associations concerned with the physical education of the young.

We demand the abolition of the regular army and the creation of a national (folk) army.

In order to carry out this program we demand: the creation of a strong central authority in the State, the unconditional authority by the political central parliament of the whole State and all its organizations.

Yes Hitler was the peculiar kind of solicialist who hated Commies. It takes all kinds I guess.
