in response to reader comment: If you assert that Hitler was right wing, you are a fool or a liar.

If one simply accepts Hitler was a Nazi and does not delve further into his actions and ideology then it's easy to assert he was a right winger. However when you compare his "manifesto" to the Communists there are striking similarities! One of the claims is that Hitler clashed with the Communists and imprisoned many in concentration camps. While it is true he did this, Hitler seen Communism as a threat only in that he wanted to be the author of the governing "dogma" of the German people not Marx, who was also Jewish or anyone else for that matter, Jew or not.

So if you realize that Hitler did not persecute Communists out of a hatred for the Communist system, but rather out of a need to eliminate competition! The propaganda may have condemned Communism, but the actions of the Nazi party as far as the aspirations for the German State smacked of Communism! If you look at his manifesto you see it duplicates the Communist ideology in many ways, but instead of Marx based Communism, Hitler inserts himself and the Nazi Party into their place as controlling the State and all of it's instruments! The desire to grow government, nationalization of all business, sharing of the profits, elimination of religious authority are all hallmarks of Communism. National Socialists in Hitlers case is not a misnomer, because that is exactly what the Nazis actually were! So the assertion that they were "extreme right wing" is actually a misnomer! Hitler was a social revolutionary in the Communist sense and was certainly not a Conservative or a Traditionalist as he was not for maintaining the status quo whatsoever! Hitler was not a Christian, though he would feign the appearance of Christianity at times as it suited him in order to win over the masses to his message. Hitler's actions and influences upon his subordinates belie any assertion of true Christianity but rather expose Hitler's own twisted ideology where the principal "sin" manifests itself as the Jew.

Preservation of racial purity was what Hitler considered Divine, marriage with Jews, Negroes or any other race which Hitler considered as "subhuman" was equivocated by Hitler as "monstrosities halfway between man and ape". Only the Aryan was considered to be in the image of the Lord and thus capable of a higher nobility which is contrary to the teachings of the New Testament and is not a Christian ideal! Hitler considered himself to be a type of German "Jesus" and even carried a whip on his person in a parody of Jesus when He chased the moneychangers out of the Temple. He seen himself as the "savior" of the German people and considered most organized religion to be at odds with his ideology, especially when the churches publically condemned the Nazi party for it's genocide of Jews! Thus many priests and lay people were arrested and placed in concentration camps and killed for their opposition to the Nazi party.

Hitler clothed himself in those elements of Christianity which suited his ideology, but was not Christian and his actions clearly demonstrate this! Those with power in the Nazi party never identified themselves as Christians, but more so as atheists or pagans worshipping the Nazi State more than anything else, Hitler being the center of this ideology, though he asserted his actions were always for the advancement of the German people through the instrument of the Nazi establishment of a "Fatherland" which would be the perfected German/Aryan state under the Nazi regime. The advancement of the Nazi State with it's "proleteriat" being the German people portrayed as the Aryan ideal. What Hitler proposed to establish was a sort of non-Marxist version of Communism, regardless of the labels applied, his actions speak for themselves. Thus Hitler, whatever his religious/ethnic assertions to the contrary was an extreme Leftist.
