Liberalism vs Nazism...

Many liberal Democrats, including some Democrat politicians, like to compare Donald Trump and his followers to Hitler and the Nazis. What they either don't realize or simply choose to ignore is the fact that liberalism channels Nazism in many, many ways.

Trump has called for removal of illegal immigrants, something liberals compare to Hitler. But Hitler removed all foreigners, legal or not. And as much as certain celebrities and liberal pundits are saying it, Trump has not called for removing all foreigners. Perhaps liberals should look up the word "illegal."

Let's look at a few examples of Liberalism mirroring Nazism:

1. Nazism: "We demand an agrarian reform in accordance with our national requirements, and the enactment of a law to expropriate the owners without compensation of any land needed for the common purpose. The abolition of ground rents, and the prohibition of all speculation in land."

Liberalism: The stripping away of land from private owners. Liberalism today demands "eminent domain" on property. The Bureau of Land Management is taking ranches in the West and the Obama administration has claimed more land for "national monuments" than any other administration in history.

2. Nazism: "We demand the nationalization of all trusts...profit-sharing in large industries...a generous increase in old-age providing maternity welfare centers, by prohibiting juvenile labor...and the creation of a national (folk) army."

Liberalism: The points raised in the Nazi platform demand an increase in taxes to support them. Liberalism today demands heavy progressive and graduated income taxes. Obama himself suggested, during his 2008 campaign, that a national security force be instituted.

3. Nazism: "That all unearned income, and all income that does not arise from work, be abolished."

Liberalism: Demands a "death tax" on anyone inheriting an estate.

4. Nazism: "We demand the nationalization of all trusts."

Liberalism: Central control of the financial system.

5. Nazism: "In order to make it possible for every capable and industrious German to obtain higher education, and thus the opportunity to reach into positions of leadership, the State must assume the responsibility of organizing thoroughly the entire cultural system of the people. The curricula of all educational establishments shall be adapted to practical life. The conception of the State Idea (science of citizenship) must be taught in the schools from the very beginning. We demand that specially talented children of poor parents, whatever their station or occupation, be educated at the expense of the State. "

Liberalism: Central control of education, with an emphasis on doing things their way. Liberals today are doing things their way in our schools (although Hitler probably would have exterminated students who displayed symptoms of being snowflakes.)

6. Nazism: Took over control of health care and made it a national system.

Liberalism: Passed Obamacare with the intention of it becoming a single-payer, national system.

7. Nazism: Instituted national gun control and confiscated guns.

Liberalism: Constantly screaming for increased gun control and would confiscate guns if they could.

8. Nazism: Hitler gave everyone a free radio. Then he nationalized the radio. Citizens were warned if they listened to anything other than Nazi radio, they would be put to death.

Liberalism: Demands Fox News and other conservative media outlets be censored and/or destroyed.

9. Nazism: Everyone got a guaranteed income from the government. The equal rights amendment was designed in two components, equality, economics and social. Economics was designed to equalize the country's wealth because everyone was entitled to equal income. To achieve that, they had to raise taxes to 70%.

Liberalism: Pushes wealth redistribution, a $15 minimum wage for everyone, higher taxes on the wealthy, and now has attained 47% of the population on some form of government assistance.

From the political program of the Nazi Party, adopted in Munich, February 24, 1920:

"We ask that the government undertake the obligation above all of providing citizens with adequate opportunity for employment and earning a living. The activities of the individual must not be allowed to clash with the interests of the community, but must take place within its confines and be for the good of all. Therefore, we demand: … an end to the power of the financial interests. We demand profit sharing in big business. We demand a broad extension of care for the aged. We demand … the greatest possible consideration of small business in the purchases of national, state, and municipal governments. In order to make possible to every capable and industrious [citizen] the attainment of higher education and thus the achievement of a post of leadership, the government must provide an all-around enlargement of our entire system of public education … We demand the education at government expense of gifted children of poor parents … The government must undertake the improvement of public health – by protecting mother and child, by prohibiting child labor … by the greatest possible support for all clubs concerned with the physical education of youth. We combat the … materialistic spirit within and without us, and are convinced that a permanent recovery of our people can only proceed from within on the foundation of the common good before the individual good."

Who does that sound like – conservatives or liberals?
