Oh, look: another brilliant conservative equating liberals to Hitler. Give it a rest. It makes you sound dumber than your use of the word "here" does.

"I hear that "Hitler was a socialist/lefty" quite a bit. I am confused by it. Can you name a few actions that Hitler took that were socialist? Not his words, but his actions? "

You mean besides the class-warfare politics, pitting group against group?

You mean besides nationalizing industries across Germany?

You mean besides war-mongering and mistreating his own allies?

What did Hitler do that WASN'T socialist aka marxist aka left-wing totalitarianism?

No, seriously, you started it, you get to eat it;

Try to describe one thing that Hitler did OR said that was anywhere near conservative AKA libertarian, because I'm pretty sure you can't, and probably won't learn of your ignorant mistake until you try..

AWL_Kaput sez;

"1) You said Christians."

And then he said left-wing. Did you want to avoid the strong argument because you have such a strong position? Because he was ALSO correct that Hitler was Christian,

Hitler was certainly left wing ie socialist ie communist ie progressive ie bolshevik ie liberal ie technocrat ie constructivist ie historicist ie Marxist ie democrat.

"2) He treated them worse. "

That is one of the indicators of a left-wing collectivist ideology; mindless jingoism and mob violence, even toward their 'comrades.'

Did you mean to provide evidence for his case?

Or are you just incredibly and pathetically ignorant about your own favored ideology?

(Which is, regrettably for you, another tell, AKA piece of evidence)

The author said "Anti-Christian" ...

I'm sure Hitler, being a Leftist, was anti-Religion overall (except his own).

An oversimplification by a simpleton.

It's a fact though that Hitler and the Nazis were left wing, just like you're left wing.

Mayor Bloomberg (a Liberal Democrat) has his Police harass young Blacks ... throwing them over the hood of a cruiser for the high-crime of walking down the side walk in a white neighborhood.

Yep! That's exactly how Hitler treated his Jews.

I had the chance to sit down with Eric Metaxas, a writer and speaker who, along with Dr. Ben Carson, addressed CPAC about the importance of religious liberty in America. Metaxas, author of bestseller "Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy," spoke at the 2012 National Prayer Breakfast, where he gave a speech that was no doubt a challenge for President Obama and his cohorts to hear. It's worth watching, as he gives a good-humored but deadly serious talk about having true faith in God, rather than simply paying lip service with Scriptural quotes (contrast President Obama's subsequent speech for...
