"National Socialist" translates to Nationalsozialistischen So "Nazi" for short.
The Nazis weren't capitalist. They seized private property, mandated extensive state control in the economy, and loathed trade with nations that didn't share goals of the Nazi ethnostate.
Socialists seize private property, mandate extensive control in the economy, and loathe the existence of capitalist market societies.
I don't think all socialists are Nazis - but there's an undeniable similarities between the two that make it clear that Nazis were/are socialists.
Agreed. I always love when people try to use the rhetoric that the Nazis were for free market capitalism. Yea, sure they were. Well, unless you were part of a group they decided to hate, like the Jews, then they would seize your business and throw you into a concentration camp. Or if you weren't part of those groups or one of their appointments to run said business, and you didn't do exactly what the Fuhrer wanted you to, then they would seize that business, again, and probably kill you.
Such a wonderful example of free market capitalism. /s
And then they bring up their opposition to Communists as further proof. Sorry, but that doesn't mean they were completely opposed to their ideals, it just means they were fighting for the same power. No different than different factions of radical Muslims fighting each other for control. We can compare them to Communist Russia to see an example of how there is barely any difference. It all just leads to fascism in the end, while the people lose freedom and suffer at the hands of a totalitarian government that says it's only doing things for the betterment of the "mother land."
"Did you know democrats were actually the racists?"
They did gather up thousands of Japanese people and put them in camps because of their race during ww2.
And formed the KKK. And led to its resurgence in the early 1900s. And were the ones who put Jim Crow laws in place.
