Pathetic. Hitler was a socialist who used crony capitalism (in much the same way as the Communists in China are presently doing) to fund his ultra-nationalist project. He owed everything to Karl Marx and grudgingly admitted as much to his closest of confidants.
The ideological war between International and Nationalist Socialism was between siblings of the Left, not between the Right and Left wings. No matter how hard the modern Left wants to divorce itself from their Nazi cousins, the facts keep getting in the way, and rightly so. KGS
Sherrod Brown Wrongly Claims Hitler Opposed Unions
What an irresponsible and repulsive statement in the face of the current controversies over unions in America. Not only that, it’s entirely unfounded.
“I look back in history, in some of the worst governments that we had, you know the first thing they did, go after unions, Hitler didn’t want unions, Stalin didn’t want unions, Mubarak didn’t want unions, these autocrats don’t want independent unions,” Brown said Thursday during a speech on the floor of the Senate.
Here is a direct quote from Hitler on trade unions.
I think that I have already answered the first question adequately. In the present state of affairs I am convinced that we cannot possibly dispense with the trades unions. On the contrary, they are among the most important institutions in the economic life of the nation. Not only are they important in the sphere of social policy but also, and even more so, in the national political sphere. For when the great masses of a nation see their vital needs satisfied through a just trade unionist movement the stamina of the whole nation in its struggle for existence will be enormously reinforced thereby.
Before everything else, the trades unions are necessary as building stones for the future economic parliament, which will be made up of chambers representing the various professions and occupations.
