Why do regressive leftists have a weird obsession with Nazism?

I mean seriously they keep saying Nazi this and Nazi that

In fact I wonder why don't they also focus on countries like Imperial Japan or the Soviet Union both whom are totalitarian governments that mass murdered many people and are just as bad as the Nazis.

Here is an example Imperial Japan's atrocities




The Nanking Massacre was an episode of mass murder and mass rape committed by Japanese troops against the residents of Nanjing (then spelled Nanking), then the capital of the Republic of China during the Second Sino-Japanese War. The massacre occurred over a period of six weeks starting on December 13, 1937, the day that the Japanese captured Nanjing. During this period, soldiers of the Imperial Japanese Army murdered Chinese civilians and disarmed combatants who numbered an estimated 40,000 to over 300,000,[7][8] and perpetrated widespread rape and looting.[9][10]


Since most Japanese military records on the killings were kept secret or destroyed shortly after the surrender of Japan in 1945, historians have not been able to accurately estimate the death toll of the massacre. The International Military Tribunal for the Far East in Tokyo estimated in 1946 that over 200,000 Chinese were killed in the incident.[11] China's official estimate is more than 300,000 dead based on the evaluation of the Nanjing War Crimes Tribunal in 1947. The death toll has been actively contested among scholars since the 1980s.[3][12]

The event remains a contentious political issue, as aspects of it have been disputed by historical negationists and Japanese nationalists,[8] who assert that the massacre has been either exaggerated or fabricated for propaganda purposes.[13][14][15] The controversy surrounding the massacre remains a stumbling block in Sino-Japanese relations and in Japanese relations with other Asia-Pacific nations, such as South Korea and the Philippines.[16]

Also the Imperial Japanese are also super racist




The speed of Japan's development led leaders to envision an empire that would prove notions of Western superiority wrong. At the same time, many viewed Japanese civilization and race as having something to offer to the "less developed" peoples of Asia. This would lead to imperial expansion abroad and oppression at home. After the Meiji Restoration (1868), the government incorporated Ainu land and implemented assimilation policies. The Ryukyuans, now Okinawans, were also expected to assimilate into mainstream culture. The term burakumin (hamlet people) replaced the terms eta and hinin, but such semantic changes did little to stop discriminatory practices. Japan's extended empire also gave rise to a domestic Korean population who also experienced severe discrimination.


Prewar conceptions regarding the peculiar uniqueness of the Japanese race continued in postwar Japan. Likewise, racial discrimination continues to exist in the postwar era. Although the post–World War II constitution has granted equal rights, and Japan has participated in international agreements to respect minority rights, it was only in 1991 that the Ainu were recognized as a minority people with individual rights and 1997 that the government recognized them corporately as an indigenous group with rights to defend their distinctive culture. Laws have not addressed the history of discrimination, nor those living outside of Hokkaido. Discrimination against Koreans residing in Japan and against the Okinawans since the modern period as a result of Japan's expansionism earlier in the century has also remained an issue throughout the twentieth century.

The Soviet Union committed many atrocities including raping German females as young as 8 and old as 80




The majority of the assaults were committed in the Soviet occupation zone; estimates of the numbers of German women raped by Soviet soldiers have ranged up to 2 million.[8][9][10][11][12] According to historian William Hitchcock, in many cases women were the victims of repeated rapes, some as many as 60 to 70 times.[13] At least 100,000 women are believed to have been raped in Berlin, based on surging abortion rates in the following months and contemporary hospital reports,[10] with an estimated 10,000 women dying in the aftermath.[14] Female deaths in connection with the rapes in Germany, overall, are estimated at 240,000.[1][15] Antony Beevor describes it as the "greatest phenomenon of mass rape in history", and has concluded that at least 1.4 million women were raped in East Prussia, Pomerania and Silesia alone.[16] According to Natalya Gesse, Soviet soldiers raped German females from eight to eighty years old. Soviet women were not spared either.[17][18][19] When General Tsygankov, head of the political department of the First Ukrainian Front, reported to Moscow the mass rape of Soviet women deported to East Germany for forced labour, he recommended that the Soviet women be prevented from describing their ordeal on their return to Russia.[20]

When Yugoslav politician Milovan Djilas complained about rapes in Yugoslavia, Stalin reportedly stated that he should "understand it if a soldier who has crossed thousands of kilometres through blood and fire and death has fun with a woman or takes some trifle."[21] On another occasion, when told that Red Army soldiers sexually maltreated German refugees, he reportedly said: "We lecture our soldiers too much; let them have their initiative."[22]

Historian Norman Naimark writes that after the summer of 1945, Soviet soldiers caught raping civilians were usually punished to some degree, ranging from arrest to execution.[23] However, the rapes continued until the winter of 1947–48, when Soviet occupation authorities finally confined Soviet troops to strictly guarded posts and camps,[24] separating them from the residential population in the Soviet zone of Germany.

Also let's not forget the mass murders Stalin committed against Soviet citizens.

It almost seems like they are downplaying the atrocities committed by those two countries.

Comparing your political opponents to Nazis is an argument used by both sides, all sides. That said, only the Right has actual Nazi's among their ranks.

Hi starwars

Here's my guess as to why the word "Nazi" gets thrown around so much:

Whoever has been developing the curriculum for the past 60 years has been very selective about which atrocities to pound in to every psyche and which to gloss over.
Simply a product of the education system, imo.

I find it so odd that the Bolshevik's genocide against the Christians and clergy (starting 1917 and resulting in at least 12 million dead Christians who were targeted for their beliefs) is NEVER discussed in regular history courses. Or at all really.
As far as atrocious, how about developing a technique for skinning hands using a steel comb? Yep, the Bolsheviks had one camp which specialized in this.

Anyway, mans inhumanity against man is never lacking, sadly.

Will be interested in reading the responses here though

....because when you're at the end of your tether and life is bleak and your illusion exposed, you come to realize that the only way for your version of peace to be realized is to kill everyone that disagrees with you so you subconsciously fantasize about doing exactly that (Hitler is the posterchild for this fantasy) whilst you accuse those you hate, constantly, of being that which you secretly and actually are.

Its Freud effect to carry it along. But make no mistake it is a deflection and projection. A big fat someone telling you its not a duck.

Well I go to a liberal college in LA and I have a professor who is not a Trump supporter (He called him a man baby) and doesn't believe in conspiracy theories admitted to me that the Liberal Coastal Elite dominated academia and that they seem to have a hatred of working class whites and that they engage in Political Correctness.

However, he told me if he openly expressed his views he'll lose his job.

I have another professor who told me he will lose his job if he was caught teaching students about the dangers of Radical Islam.

In addition, there are Regressive leftist SJWs (Black Lives Matter, Antifa types) and they make a lot of trouble like disrupting conservative speakers and pulling fire alarms.

Ironically, I've yet to converse with someone who considers themselves a liberal who has called for the deaths of anyone based on disagreement over political ideology. I've had numerous people who consider themselves conservatives call for the death of all "libtard snowflakes". And that is a direct quote from a reply to a Facebook post I had made a couple of weeks ago.

I really fear what would happen if they come to power. Right now in South Korea, they have their own version of SJWs supporting North Korea and wished Fat Boy rule over them while calling for US troops to get out of South Korea.

Mark my words if the SJWs have their way in South Korea, North Korea will takeover South Korea with minimal casualties.

Yikes. Sadly, it sounds as if you are getting the type of education which will actually prepare you for the real world!
Man babies everywhere unfortunately. (lol, kidding..or am I)


I have expressed the following view on another thread so forgive my redundancy but..
Either higher ed shapes up or I think it will be out on its broke a** within 20 years. Who is going to pay 300,000 for a worthless degree?

Some of it is projection, but some of it is a realization that their old standbys (racism, sexism, etc) have lost effect after they badly overused them the last eight years and that they need to find a new derogatory label to apply to those who dare disagree and that they think allows them an automatic win in any argument.

Probably because Nazis are the only politically correct super-villains.

BULLSNIP! The Nazi Party was founded as a liberal, leftist party. Hitler railed against capitalism, embraced socialism, championed a government system by which the government WAS the people and was massive, they nationalized their manufacturing sector, pushed HUGE social welfare programs funded by "division of profits," federally disarmed their people, ran huge deficits to pay for social programs, had laws that protected animals from abuse while embracing the dehumaization of people, to portray them as even Right leaning is a bastardization of history and a lie.
en.wikipedia.org...
Look at the 25 points and tell me these are conservative or right leaning for that era. The primary difference between the left and the positions of Nazi Germany is found in a shift from nationalism towards globalism. If you remove the nationalist propaganda from Hitler's platform and replace it with the modern left's "we are citizens of the globe" BS, you'd have a platform which could easily win a DNC nomination for POTUS in today's USA. Points 8 through 22 and Point 25 could have been directly cited by Bernie Sanders last election and nobody would have thought him to be in any way off kilter to his embraced positions.

The SOLE connection to Nazi Germany and modern conservative politics is found in the aspects of nationalism and national protectionism.

He killed the Marxists. There's a difference. Socialism dictates that a central government has fascist control over the elements of production, land, housing, etc and doles out the profits to the workers. Marxism is closer to anarchy, with no ruling central government existing outside of constant conflict to hold the position until the next uprising.
