NSDAP totally distorted two concepts

Reader comment on item: Yes to Nationalism, No to Imperialism

Submitted by Antony (India), Aug 13, 2019 at 08:27

Hitler renamed a German workers party into National Socialist Deutsche Arbeiters Partei.

This Nazi club was the opposite of nationalist, imperialist as they concurred from Africa to Russia.
The Western Left happily used Hitler's twist to condemn nationalism as they favored Communist Internationalism.

The Nazi party was also not socialist but totalitarian.
