Not just the mixed race KKK Nazi jury, but also the KKK Nazi FBI that poured over every aspect of GZ's life trying to uncover a pattern of racist behavior.....and found none. AND the KKK Nazi DOJ Eric Holder who promised, no....vowed, to review the entire case for possible federal charges, and after his exhaustive review, charged him with....nothing. Imagine, Eric Holder, Nazi and KKK member.....who'd have thought.

And let's not forget his minions that sent money to support anti-Zimmerman rallies that could have easily turned into riots.
Sent OUR money, tax money. Stop to think how many FBI and DOJ agents pursued GZ, for months and months, looking for the smoking gun of actual racism. Millions of tax dollars spent. GZ is arguably one of the most investigated men in the last 20 years. And what came of it? Well, for all but the most mentally disturbed, there's the sense that this deal has been looked at from every angle, and while you may not like the result, there was no KKK, no NAZIs, no racism in the trial, and no racism in the verdict. For the truly mentally disturbed who can't see or remember how many outside law enforcement agencies were involved, all they can see is KKK and Nazi (and have to believe that Eric Holder is both). As a tax payer, I wonder what else we could have done with those millions. But if you don't pay taxes, it'll never occur to you.

I wouldn't say the Democrat Party is anything like the Hitler's Nazi Party Just for the simple fact that Hitler and the Nazi Party had no use for communist and that is what Liberal Demcorats today advocate.

Myth: Hitler was a leftist.

Fact: Nearly all of Hitler's beliefs placed him on the far right.

Summary

Many conservatives accuse Hitler of being a leftist, on the grounds that his party was named "National Socialist." But socialism requires worker ownership and control of the means of production. In Nazi Germany, private capitalist individuals owned the means of production, and they in turn were frequently controlled by the Nazi party and state. True socialism does not advocate such economic dictatorship -- it can only be democratic. Hitler's other political beliefs place him almost always on the far right. He advocated racism over racial tolerance, eugenics over freedom of reproduction, merit over equality, competition over cooperation, power politics and militarism over pacifism, dictatorship over democracy, capitalism over Marxism, realism over idealism, nationalism over internationalism, exclusiveness over inclusiveness, common sense over theory or science, pragmatism over principle, and even held friendly relations with the Church, even though he was an atheist.

Argument

To most people, Hitler's beliefs belong to the extreme far right. For example, most conservatives believe in patriotism and a strong military; carry these beliefs far enough, and you arrive at Hitler's warring nationalism. This association has long been something of an embarrassment to the far right. To deflect such criticism, conservatives have recently launched a counter-attack, claiming that Hitler was a socialist, and therefore belongs to the political left, not the right.

Don't fall for that leftist nonsense. They assume the the right favors racism over racial tolerance. What a bunch of bunk!

The right favors eugenics?...LOL...Eugenics Definition: "the science of improving a human population by controlled breeding to increase the occurrence of desirable heritable characteristics. Developed largely by Francis Galton as a method of improving the human race, it fell into disfavor only after the perversion of its doctrines by the Nazis."

Sounds like abortion, yes?...the left!

The right favors merit AND equality.

The right favors competition AND cooperation.

Read in between the lines.

Don't let these left wing loons fool you.

One other fact---the right condemns Hitler.

The left is far more likely to accept Hitler because the black wing of the democrat party hates Jews. And the party sucks up to the black wing.

They're also LIARS!

The right condemns fascism. The right condemns fascist oversight and control of business and capitalism.

The left champions unnecessary fascist-like regulation and government control of our Capitalist economic system.

The left seeks to eliminate Capitalism. According to them, businesses are Evil. Successful people, the rich, are Devils. They're just sucking up to every malcontent idiot to get their vote.

No I understand Hitler's philosophy and what I was getting at it wasn't and does not align with the Political Left or FDR and if that was the case Hitler & FDR and the US would have been allies during World War 2 and Hitler had no use for Communism which is associated with political left and there is both Republicans and Democrats that favor Liberalism which is nothing more than advocating communism.

Hitler's core philosophy does not align with the Political right, it aligns with the left in terms of abortion, euthanasia, intrusive business regulation, and hatred of Jews.

Hitler wasn't to the Political Left by no means like I said or FDR would have supported Hitler and his Policies over in Europe besides it was the Conservatives on the Right in Germany that supported Hitler and the only thing that Hitler and the Liberals here in the US today have in Common is they want concentrated power in one small group just like Hitler wanted too and they can be found both in the Democrat and Republcian Party is the problem and they are obvious too who they are too.

Nazism

In 1933, with the support of more traditional right-wing conservatives, Hitler became Chancellor of Germany and the Nazis gradually established a one-party totalitarian state, under which Jews, political opponents and other "undesirable" elements were marginalised, harassed and eventually imprisoned and exterminated. Once in power, Hitler purged the remnants of the party’s more socially and economically radical factions in the Night of the Long Knives and, following the death of President Hindenburg, ultimate authority became increasingly concentrated in his hands, as "Führer", or leader. Following the Holocaust and German defeat in the Second World War, only a few fringe racist groups, usually referred to as neo-Nazis, still describe themselves as following National Socialism.
