Recent events have illustrated the need to once again eviscerate a favorite myth of the left’s socialist national agenda.
Some leftist lies refuse to die. One of their perennial favorites is the bizarre habit of claiming socialist nations are somehow ‘right wing’ or ‘conservative’ while in the throes of their inevitable collapse. The latest example is of course the socialist nation of Venezuela, but this scheme reaches back to the WWII era nation of Germany and a certain national socialist worker’s party.
Repeating a lie doesn’t make it the truth
Much like mythical zombies of the undead that arise again and again, this lie crops up in the news with tiresome regularity. The latest example being Robert Francis O’Rourke compares Trump to Nazis. Or the headline dripping with incredulity from the Daily Mail: Brazil’s President Bolsonaro says there is ‘no doubt’ Nazism was a leftist movement after visiting Holocaust museum in Israel.
Those are just from recent days with the nation’s socialist media fervently espousing far-left talking points last week with regard to Republican Congressman Mo Brooks daring to have the effrontery to reference historical facts. Ever the ones for irony, each of these sources reported on this story because the good Representative talked about left’s use of the ‘Big Lie’. This is the presumption that as socialist Vladimir Lenin once quipped: ‘A lie told often enough becomes the truth.’ Alternatively, as stated by another infamous socialist, Adolf Hitler: ‘If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.’ It’s not just a coincidence that leftists all use the same tried and true tactics of deception.
While it should be easy to prove that a far-left, National Socialist Worker’s party was, in fact, a far-left National Socialist Worker’s party. The left has decided that their opinion should overcome any facts on the matter. For what better way to deflect the horrid results of their base ideology than to distract with similar results of what is supposedly not their base ideology. The left is trying this with the socialist nation of Venezuela, but it reaches back decades to the aforementioned example.
Thus in another example of having to once again eviscerate this perennial lie from the nation’s socialist-left we will present some of the pertinent facts of the matter. Part II will discuss some of the left’s talking points on the matter for the purpose of trying to finally put this to rest.
The facts of the case
The Oxford English dictionary definition of Left:
‘2 (often the Left) [treated as singular or plural] A group or party favoring radical, reforming, or socialist views.
Origin Old English lyft, left ‘weak’ (the left-hand side being regarded as the weaker side of the body), of West Germanic origin.’
The Oxford English dictionary definition of Nazi:
‘noun (plural Nazis)
1 historical A member of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party.
Origin German, abbreviation representing the pronunciation of Nati- in Nationalsozialist’ national socialist’, probably by analogy with Sozi, from Sozialist ‘socialist’.’
In addition to this we have the following stated in the Encyclopedia Britannica entry for Left.
Ending with this succinct phrase:
‘Socialism is the standard leftist ideology in most countries of the world; communism is a more radical leftist ideology.’
Thus the definitional facts prove that a Far-Left National Socialist Workers’ Party is a Far-Left National Socialist Workers’ Party, QED!
We also have the last part of the Translator’s introduction to the English edition of Mein Kampf by James Murphy:
‘Finally, I would point out that the term Social Democracy may be misleading in English, as it has not a democratic connotation in our sense. It was the name given to the Socialist Party in Germany. And that Party was purely Marxist; but it adopted the name Social Democrat in order to appeal to the democratic sections of the German people.’
Abbots Langley, February, 1939
Coining a phrase
The words and phrases placed on the currency of a nation are of profound importance. They are emblematic of a country’s national character and a constant reminder of what it holds as significant.
In the states we have the American Trinity as Dennis Prager terms it. These are E Pluribus Unum, Liberty, In God We Trust. These are American values emblazoned on every coin that remind everyone who we are and what we believe.
Political ideologies are based on the two fundamental philosophies of Individualism and Collectivism. Those who favor individual rights and liberties are of the pro-liberty right and are obviously of the philosophy of individualism. Those favoring collective rights and collectivism are of the socialist-left and are obviously of the philosophy of Collectivism.
This provides the last and strongest data points in our discussion proving a socialist worker’s party was a socialist worker’s party.

Note the last part of the 25 point program of the Nationalsozialistischen Deutschen Arbeiterpartei with the words in BOLD: Gemeinnutz vor Eigennutz
The original German version being:
Gemeinnutz vor Eigennutz
COMMON GOOD BEFORE INDIVIDUAL GOOD
‘Common Good Before Individual Good’ Could there be any more succinct assertion of collectivism over Individualism? This wasn’t just a BOLD declaration in the party program of a socialist worker’s party. This phrase was literally ‘coined’ in the money of that socialist nation.
The final data point proving the Nazis were of the far-left
Take note of line 25 of the Program of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party [from the same sources] Translated as:
25. In order to carry out this program we demand: the creation of a strong central authority in the State, the unconditional authority by the political central parliament of the whole State and all its organizations.
Leftists will quite often like to parrot the lie that the Nazi were ‘right-wing’ such as the case of Robert Francis O’Rourke , while failing to explain why this is the case. Very much like the meaning of common words, the political spectrum must have some basis in fact. Simply saying that one ideological group belongs somewhere without a factual basis is a meaningless statement.
Any decent model of the political spectrum will have one scale with the proper metric of governmental power as its standard of measurement. This enables someone to quickly and easily determine where they are situated on the scale instead of making the determination more opaque. That being said, it should be clear that by the ideological definitions, the proponents of limited or no government belong on the right or the minimal government side of the scale. While proponents of authoritarian or totalitarian government belong on the left.
Thus, that part of the Nazi program should be the final nail in the coffin of the ‘Nazis were right-wing’ lie, since it is obvious that they were proponents of a ‘strong central authority in the State’. But let us consider this given that ‘right-wing’ essentially equates to conservative, with one of its central tenets being of limited government, that is clearly at odds to that stated in the Nazi program.
There is the absurd contention that somehow the Nazis were further off to the right, but as detailed in the case for the linear political spectrum, this makes no sense since it would require a mathematical discontinuity with regard to the measurement of political power. Thus the Nazis belong on the far left no matter the self-serving protestations of the left.
Thus we have presented the definitional facts of the case proving the Nazi party of Adolf Hitler was indeed a Far-Left National Socialist Worker’s party. This was bolstered by several other data points, including the words setting forth the Nazi’s authoritarian mindset in their 25 point program. As well as they’re coining of a phrase of their collectivist philosophy. Other publications listed here have also proven this point, Left still tries to persist in this very convenient lie.
Will you help revive the American Conservative Movement?
Conservative Media, we need to blacklist Trump-Russia story and move on
To The Daily Wire, One America News, Washington Times, Blaze Media, and all others to the right of Fox News,
There was no collusion and no obstruction. It took over two years for this narrative to search under every stone and exhaust millions of dollars to, in the end, find nothing. The leftist media will not make many concessions, especially as it relates to obstruction for a crime that was not committed. We cannot as conservatives prove beyond an unreasonable doubt that Trump did not collude or obstruct. As Democrats in Congress keep the narrative on life support, the Conservative media needs to pull the plug.
The average American is fatigued by the Trump-Russia collusion/obstruction narrative. Meanwhile our effort is playing defense against a leftist narrative rather than reporting on issues both our base and the politically uninvolved care far more about. When the economy is strong and the border crisis is pressing, why is so much of our attention directed towards the soap opera clown show that takes place? Instead of countering this narrative, conservative media should starve the narrative of as much attention as possible.
An area which Conservatives have long failed, but have made great improvements towards, is controlling the narrative, the language and Overton Window of society. If we continue to counter the leftist narrative of the Trump-Russia conspiracy theory, we will continue to feed their power in controlling the narrative in the American political and cultural arena. Instead, let us make an effort to not only counter the narrative but set the narrative.
In our friendly rivalry as Conservative outlets, let us come together and collectively move on from the Trump-Russia story, discarding it as if it were a flat-earth conspiracy and move on.
Conservatives cannot be afraid to press the culture war
There are many reasons Conservatives have been reticent to press the culture war. Many of them were acted upon by Mitt Romney only for those conventions to be blown away by Trump winning in 2016. The Republican Party hates running on culture issues instead wanting only to use issues like abortion as shiny objects for show votes. But we must remember, Trump won and Romney and McCain lost. Trump ran on a culture issue: immigration. He won. And in my opinion, Trump made it highly difficult for him to win, not because of the issues he was running on, but because of his personality. So let that be encouragement.
For a Rainbow jihad fatwa will come after you if you aren’t attracted to a man in drag. They will pass legislation to make possessing certain guns illegal. You will be called a racist. They are already passing legislation protecting infanticide. If we do not press these issues, we will lose. If we stay silent, as Erick Erickson so famously said, we will be made to care.
But Wait! The economy is doing great
Republicans will want to focus on the economy and there is nothing wrong with that. To quote The Road to El Dorado, “both is good.” There is no reason we cannot do both. Reasonably speaking, it means we are going to have to sacrifice certain talking points. I nominate the Russian Hoax, as people are already tired of hearing about it, whereas, cultural issues such as Brian Sims dominated Conservative news cycles. People are motivated by cultural issues. Guns, illegal immigration, and abortion are among the top single issue voting groups. In 2012, Republicans ran on jobs, jobs, jobs and lost, lost, lost.
Trump can press the economy in 2020 and use it to get people to reelect him as they would any other incumbent. But reelecting Trump to maintain the economy is not a win so much as it’s not a defeat. Because let’s be honest, if the Republicans pass a balanced budget with a plan to pay off the debt in say twenty years, the economy would contract. We would undoubtedly go into recession and unemployment would rise due to a reduction in public sector jobs. Are we, as Conservatives, willing to bite that bullet? I hope so. If so, the message of austerity contradicts the message of the economy, why should the economy be our main focus? Recessions are temporary and a natural part of the business cycle as our economy evolves. The Great Depression only lasted as long as they did because of the intervention from progressives like Herbert Hoover and FDR. The Republican Party is unwilling to bite this bullet. They aren’t fiscally responsible. Coincidentally, they aren’t willing to defund Planned Parenthood, despite how they donate to candidates who run against them. Let me take that back, it’s not a coincidence. If we look at the Liberty Score of Republicans, you will see that the most socially conservative are also the most fiscally responsible as well. I am hardpressed to find an exception. Socially liberal fiscally conservative doesn’t exist in the real world today. Why? Because being fiscally conservative requires a socially conservative worldview. My evidence for this assertion is Congress.
In order to get these ends, we need to engage in the culture war as a means. Increasing spending does not earn a Republican a primary challenge. But being soft on illegal immigration will. Marco Rubio didn’t win the nomination in 2016. So it’s safe to conclude that illegal immigration is a more energizing issue than national debt. Once again, going back to 2012, Mitt Romney floated self-deportation in the primary but steered clear of illegal immigration in the general. He said he was pro-life, but ran ads to assure people he wouldn’t act on his pro-life stance. But enough using Romney as a punching bag for being a loser. Ron DeSantis in Florida ran on a Trump platform in Florida, without the Trump personality and upset Andrew Gillum in what was supposed to be a blue wave. Kim Reynolds, in swing state Iowa, signed a heartbeat bill into law in May 2018. She went on to pull perhaps the most surprising upset in the 2018 Midterm Elections in what will be a swing state in 2020. Meanwhile obvious RINO Martha McSally couldn’t beat one of the most overtly anti-American candidates in Kyrsten Sinema, in a mild red state.
But let’s look at this from the Left’s perspectives. Indiana and Texas are roughly comparable in terms of the GOP’s advantage. Beto O’Rourke came close while the “moderate” Democrat in Indiana got owned, double digits despite polling ahead, against who in my opinion was a shaky candidate. Back on the right John James ran a solid campaign in Michigan, despite losing, meanwhile the Republican in Wisconsin got trounced. Energy is the name of the game and when Conservatives bring it, we perform better. Conservatives bring that energy by fighting the culture war.
Are minorities more socially conservative then the Democrat Party? Yes. Do these same minorities tend to economic liberals? Yes. So which is the best way to reach minorities, by emphasizing the issues we have in common or by arguing that we need to roll back entitlements. I’ll take the former, because the Democrats are a confederacy, and social conservatism stands a better chance at weakening the confederacy.
Politics Downstream From Culture
The Andrew Breitbart quote is beyond true. Previously I wrote that our society was fiscally irresponsible, therefore why should we be surprised that this same society elects Lindsey Grahams and Mitch McConnells. The ideals of the American Revolution were preached in churches years before 1775. The 2nd Great Awakening preceded the abolition of slavery. Progressive theology preceded progressive policies. Cultural leftism has so far preceded socialist policies. Look at Marianne Williams who was a thought leader for a new age cult long before she was a socialist candidate. So what am I saying? Socially conservative policies will precede fiscally conservative policies.
A Caveat of Trump and State Governments
Now the first objection to this claim is that Trump has implemented some socially conservative policies. Let’s take immigration, for example, where Trump is most willing to make a bad deal with Democrats to resolve the issue. A border wall is not worth amnesty. DACA should not be kept under any circumstances. Furthermore, Trump is far too easily swayed by Ivanka and Jared Kushner who will only lead his governance astray. But if there were a Congress full of Conservatives, we would see far fewer weaknesses in the President. Congress is supposed to be the most powerful branch. If they sent Trump a balanced budget, Trump would undoubtedly sign it.
State governments, by their smaller nature, are often times ran more fiscally responsible and have balanced budget requirements in their constitutions. In fact, many legislatures either meet every other year or session that is a segment within the year. These relics of a more agrarian culture that placed high esteem on limited government are hard to undo. But legislatures like that in Annapolis will do their damage within their session.
Conservatives shouldn’t cater to people who don’t exist, rather they should fight the culture war because there are gains in this war that will lead to a culture more willing to accept austere measures. We can only win the culture war if we fight for it. We can only end abortion if we fight for it. We can only end illegal immigration if we fight for it. Play offense. Make the left defend infanticide and ask the average uninformed American: do they want that person in office? Make them uncomfortable by sending illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities, so that they will feel the cost of their own ideology. Make them admit that they believe black Americans are less competent than white Americans. Have them explain the difference between a semiautomatic and fully automatic firearm. Maybe then we can finally eliminate policies such as the outdated and cost burdensome Social Security or end the long failed war on poverty.
If politics flows downstream from culture as American history has long shown, in order for Conservatives to win, we must win the culture war.
Don’t fall for the Mitch McConnell Grim Reaper ruse
Team Mitch has been capitalizing off of himself as a meme. The famous Cocaine Mitch label given to him by West Virginia’s Don Blankenship is now a money raising mantra for Mitch McConnell. However, like Ricky Bobby in Talladega Nights going from Shake and Bake to El Diablo, it seems he wants a new message Mitch McConnell Grim Reaper of socialism. That’s right, Mitch McConnell will push the narrative that the Senate Majority Leader who does so little for our side is going to bring death to socialist policies.
Yup, they're real. Click below and enter for your chance to win a SIGNED #CocaineMitch shirt!

Mitch McConnell Grim Reaper didn’t fight illegal immigration which, if the Democrats are successful, will pave the way for them to demographically change the country to where we can’t win. If Democrats win, they will enact their uncloseted socialist policies. This Mitch McConnell Grim Reaper stunt is a fraud.
— Team Mitch (@Team_Mitch) April 22, 2019
But Mitch McConnell is not alone in clowning himself in the DC clown show to get people to forget how bad he is, since his election is coming up in 2020.
Lindsey Graham is also terrible as well. He thought standing up for Brett Kavanaugh would enable us to forget that he voted to affirm every Obama Supreme Court nominee. But he goes on Fox News and delivers a talking point we want to hear.
Devin Nunes is another fraudster who was a strong voice in defense of Trump during the investigation of the Russian Hoax. But his voting record is straight trash. There are a ton of Republicans who talk a big game but do nothing, or talk a big game and do damage to the cause. Mitch McConnell is inventing the game for them to stick around. They know the right can meme. They know the American people want to be entertained. This is a ploy, don’t you forget it in 2020.
