We are entering socialism in America, and it's the same form of government they had. They were the national socialist party, and ours just has the
fake label across it. But it's just the same.
Don't be blind.
Umm Hitler called his party socialist on the premise that it brought in followers from the socialist ranks. he did that so often it isnt funny to so
many areas, basically used a lie or twisted reality to gain support from as many corners as he could, untill he eventually turned on em once their
use was up. Those who didn't get duped where stomped into oblivion.
Read the beginning of the book "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich: A history of Nazi germany" by William L. Shirer... its about 1200 pages long
but a fine read, considering the guy was there as an American correspondent during the entire thing and he also had full access to the captured
records after the war, and was at the Nuremberg(sp?) trials. Its amazing he even managed to get off the ground let alone become supreme warlord of
That book also explains alot about the German people at the time from the authors own observations, Americans share some of the traits but thankfully
they have a few the Germans at that time really needed. And Hitler was fundamentally stupid, when you look at the evidence.. sure he was smart but he
was ignorant where it would have mattered the most... and thankfully he was, since it was that, that ultimately was his downfall.
Obama aint Hitler, neither was Bush (although he was another kind of bad).
Great Photos though, that mass crowd one is just scary, I knew they where huge, but that is just beyond epic.
Wasnt the Eagle used first by the Romans in that way, heck Hitler modeled alot of his stuff on the Roman Empire visually.
Edit :- heh beh trying to find the part in the book where he mentions why they called their party the National Socialist Party, but trying to find it
in 1200 pages is a little hard going
**Goes back to sifting through pages**
Edit2:- What OldDragger said bellow me
Hm looking through it again, I might have gotten that part of the book out of context, granted Hitler wasnt in anyway Socialist nor where the Nazi.
