Lets break it down
- Hitler was elected with 98% of the vote.
Incorrect. He failed to gain enough of the vote to get enough of a majority. In the last free election in pre-war Germany (1932) they gained 33.09
of the vote. The 1933 election he did get a majority but it was in no way a free election (in that other parties were banned from advertising, the
KPD (German communist party) was banned, and there was significant voter intimidation
- Hitler destroyed the existing medical system when he brought a national healthcare plan into being.
Incorrect. The Weimar years saw an expansion of healthcare to all German citizens, the Nazis reduced it's scope.
- First, people were forced to register their guns to cut down on crime.
Incorrect, there was gun legislation in 1928 (in Wiemar Germany, pre Hitler), but there was no change in the gun laws until 1938
- Then they were forced to turn them in or risk capital punishment for keeping them.
Incorrect The Nazis liberalized gun laws in 1938, meaning that you only needed to register hand guns, but not long barreled guns. The groups of
people who didn't need a permit to carry guns increased. It did ban Jews from owning guns...
Please deny ignorance and fact check
It says 'in Austria' . Um Hitler was never elected in Austra, he forced a merger of Austria and Germany in 1938, after a vote in Austria which did
get 99.7% percent of the vote. But the German army had moved into Austria, undesirables like Jews and Socialists were banned from voting, it wasn't
a closed ballot, and voting was 'overseen'. It's also worth mentioning the heavy amount of propaganda pushed on the Austrians before the vote.
Since they were legally the same country, I'd imagine that the 1938 Nazi gun legislation would apply, as would the German universal health insurance
system (which was initially set up by Otto von Bismarck who set up the first welfare state to stop socialism/communism)
