While socialist leaning Democrats like to keep this issue up for debate, the fact of the matter is clear. Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party were socialists.
It doesn’t take much digging to come to this conclusion. The actual name of the Nazi Party was the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. That by itself should end the argument.
Yet those interested in keeping socialism separate from the Nazis claim that Hitler and his followers were socialists only by name.
Yet as a group of strongly anti-capitalist members who think the public should be ruled by a centralized state power makes it pretty clear that Nazis were decidedly socialist.
