Do you ever tire of hearing that we on the right, conservatives, are called right-wing extremists, but then also are called Nazis? Well, I do. I’ve been called a Nazi on occasion. It cuts me to the quick. Actually, it doesn’t.
It doesn’t bother me because those who say such things couldn’t be more wrong and just demonstrate their historical ignorance. So wrong, in fact, that it is quite literally the opposite of these ignoramuses’ understanding of what a Nazi is and who Hitler was.
First let’s put the obvious aside, that we on the right have nothing in common with Hitler or the Nazis. They were, after all, socialists. Hitler himself joined the socialist “German Workers Party” in 1919. He later changed the name to “The National Socialist German Workers Party” – the Nazi Party. When was the last time you heard anyone on the right being called a socialist? Answer – never.
Now for some history.
Like all dictators, Adolf Hitler craved the idea of conquest. The problem was, by the time he rose to power, the other European “superpowers” had long since colonized most of the world. Whatever would he do?
Well, rather than embark on long, possibly fruitless overseas quests, he was inspired to do something else. Instead, he decided to stay put and expand, or colonize, his own neighborhood, as it were.
It was the quest for Lebensraum, or living space. His vision was, as he put it, to expand his “colonial territory to the East” – specifically, Poland, Belarus, the Baltic States and, yes, Russia.
Hitler wrote, “It is inconceivable that a higher people should painfully exist on a soil too narrow for it, whilst amorphous masses, which contribute nothing to civilization, occupy infinite tracts of a soil that is one of the richest in the world.”
And who or what, you may ask, was his inspiration for this “neighborhood colonialism”?
Why, it was the 19th-century Jacksonian Democrats and Andrew Jackson’s idea of Manifest Destiny.
In November of 1923, Hitler was found guilty of an attempted insurrectionist coup in Munich, called the Beer Hall Putsch. He was charged with high treason and sent to Landsberg prison. For high treason, he spent only a year in the slammer. But it was a productive year.
It was there that he wrote “Mein Kampf” (My Struggle), and it was also there that he discovered an alternate means of conquest through his realization that American Democrat Andrew Jackson had already shown the way to the aforementioned Lebensraum, the expansion of living space through settler colonialism.
As Dinesh D’Souza put it, “Jackson showed Hitler the way. He drove the American Indians off their land, killed those who resisted and enslaved those who remained.”
So the next time you, as a conservative “right-winger” is called a Nazi – instead of the standard retort of “I am not,” you may wish to inform your uninformed verbal assailant that Hitler and the Nazis learned their wicked ways from the Jacksonian Democrats and Jackson’s idea of Manifest Destiny.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
