As Temporarily-Exiled has evidenced for us, holding antipathy towards capitalism, supporting some socialist methods and supporting greater equality within a select ethnic group doesn't mean someone is a socialist. This is a trick the Nazis tried to pull, in their case exploiting the term socialist as part of propaganda efforts to make their politics seem more acceptable, especially to workers. It's not dissimilar to fascists today trying to exploit football subculture to try and normalise them and their politics. Hitler wasn't a socialist. He detested the hard left and communists and actual socialists were severely repressed, often with their lives. As such it's a crass comment to make.You're trying to argue hitler wasn't a socialist. And you're suggesting Malcs hasn't got a leg to stand on?
And guess what your proof of this is? Snopes fact-check article.
Forget what Hitler himself has said in mass rallies, forget that he led the national socialist workers party, let's look at his policies shall we?
Innovated public work schemes which gave workers increased benefits
Promising everyone a job - Which he created jobs by increasing the state, then allowing wages to rise with prices because he wanted people working for the Government
Free daycare and big on education, basically an entire generation raised by the state
Up to an 80% tax
Implemented gun control
I could literally go on and on forever. But to somehow claim Hitler wasn't a hard-left wing socialist proves you haven't got a clue what you're on about. He was your types leader back in the 1940s.
