What do you think the NAZI party stood for?
Hitler was working for Captain Mayr who was head of propoganda etc for The Bavarian Army and was ordered to visit a meeting of the German Workers
Party, DAP, as the inclusion of the word 'Workers' suggested it may be a left-wing organisation.
However, the DAP was a nationalist party and was aligned to the volkisch movement.
Hitler was asked to join the party by it's leader Anton Drexler and rapidly became a prominent figure within the party.
The words National and Socialist were later added to the party name in an effort to attract the disenchanted from across the political spectrum.
The NSDAP was anti-Marxist, anti-Capitalist, ant-Semetic, in fact it was practically anti everything that didn't have a Nationalist flavour or
Learning the past will show us the future.
Hitler loved the early progressive movement and modeled himself after it.
No he didn't.
Read the testimonies and accounts of August Kubizek and Reinhold Hanish.
The gas chambers were not made for the Jews they were made for the people who did not contribute to the whole.
They were designed as a final solution to the jewish question - an added bonus for Hitler was that he could also use them to get rid of anyone who
disagreed with him or who he had taken offence to etc as well.
He was a progressive.
I've read and heard him being described as a lot of things - I am voracious reader of anything relating to Hitler, especially his early life - but
never a progressive.
By the way, what actually constitutes a 'progressive'?
Hitler was a progressive prove me wrong.
I refer The Honourable Gentleman to answer I gave earlier.
Oh, and more importantly - exactly where is the relevance to the topic?
Perhaps you should start a thread about Hitler and we'll continue the discussion there as it's not really right that we derail this
