Hitler was not "Right Wing," He was a Leftist - What else did they get wrong?
This could have been a decent documentary, except for the fact that the term "right wing" was used to describe Hitler and the Nazis about two dozen times. Hitler was about as right wing as Karl Marx, since Hitler was a socialist and socialists are not right wingers, they are leftists. The Nazi Party wasn't the "National Conservative Party of Germany," it was the "National Socialist German Workers' Party." Socialists are for big government, Conservatives are for limited government and there never has been, nor will there ever be, a right wing tyrant, because right wingers by their very nature are for limited government. Limited government prevents power hungry demagogues from gaining enough power to murder the people who gave them the power in the first place. Subsequently, if Conservatives had dominated Germany in the 1930s, Hitler never would have risen to power and he wouldn't have been able to slaughter 12 million Germans. As a matter of fact, in the election for Chancellor that Hitler won, which began his rise to dictator, he beat a Republican. Anyone who says otherwise is just completely ignorant about history, or they are trying to spread ridiculous propaganda meant to associate liberal tyrants like Adolf Hitler or Joseph Stalin with conservativism. Anyway, since the makers of this documentary got such a basic fact wrong, it makes you wonder what else they got wrong.
