TL;DR version: Despite superficial appearances, Hitler’s public works programs were not very innovative, and depended more on defense spending than anything else. Even the autobahn program supplied only one-fifth the jobs the Nazi’s claimed it would. Other points of Hitler’s Nazi Party going against socialism. Nazis banned workers from striking for better pay and working conditions, sending strike leaders to concentration camps. Also, the Nazis actually tended to privatize public industries, diametrically against the Western world's then-contemporary trend of nationalizing industries.

*Arresting workers objecting to low pay and unsafe working conditions. (14:22)

*Opposing the Autobahn as a “car only” road, alleging that idea was a “Jewish Capitalist” one. (13:10)

*Skew reemployment figures by forcing women and Jews out of jobs and giving them to German men. (13:34)

*Replaced labor unions with a “Strength Through Joy” Program, that all workers (employees and bosses) had to join. The goal being to get workers away from the Marxist idea of class consciousness and replace it with the idea of an ethnic-folkish consciousness. (14:20)

*Business owners could act freely within their firms but faced tight restrictions within the market, especially when it comes to the bigger interest of the German Volk. (17:06)

*Nazi economic goas were to be self-reliant, not capitalist or socialist. That would allow them to wage war in order to enact their “Lebensraum” policies. (17:37)

*The Nazis (Hitler faction) said that while capitalism was broken, it could be reformed. They distinguished between productive capitalism and what amounts to crony capitalism. (19:06)

*The Nazi Party actually privatized more government-owned/operated businesses than any other Western nation in this time period (21:06)

- Although the Nazi Party bought stock in the Gelsenkirchen Mining Company, the strongest firm inside the United Steelworks conglomerate. HOWEVER, the Nazis reorganized United Steel so that the government’s majority stake of 52% ownership dropped to under 25% (21:31)

- During the 30s, privatization receipts represented 1.4% of the total fiscal revenues of Nazi Germany. (22:04)

Yes, I have posted this same video before. It’s just some people don’t want to hear it.

The irony in your statement is that the majority of Jews are democrats. IOW, epic fail on your part.

I suppose Bernie Sanders hates Jews too, right?

Actually what the Nazis, the Communists and all leftists, including our Democrats have in common is that they all believe that the state or the communal or the group is more important than the individual. So, yes, the Nazis and the socialists of AOC have a lot more in common than you think. They all believe that we should give up our individuality for the sake of the greater good.

Standing on the vanguard is the Republican party, protecting individual rights from you collective hoards. We will never allow you people to destroy the promise of America.

You're really reaching here, Jimmy. I challenge you to show me one bit of evidence that Democrats hate Jews. Hell, the majority of Jews vote Democrat, even in at the state level.

Really? Then why are most American Jews Democrats?

Also, the Republican obsession with Israel has more to do with evangelical Christianity and beliefs about the rapture and the end times. Democrats don't support starting wars and basing foreign policy on apocalyptic fiction.

No need to conflate, both ideologies are terrible enough in their own right. Feel better?
