Below is an extract from the policy document of a well-known 20th century political party. See if you can pick the party concerned:

9. All citizens of the State shall be equal as regards rights and duties.

10. The first duty of every citizen must be to work mentally or physically. The activities of the individual may not clash with the interests of the whole, but must proceed within the frame of the community and be for the general good.

Therefore we demand:

11. That all unearned income, and all income that does not arise from work, be abolished.

12. Since every war imposes on the people fearful sacrifices in life and property, all personal profit arising from the war must be regarded as a crime against the people. We therefore demand the total confiscation of all war profits whether in assets or material.

13. We demand the nationalization of businesses which have been organized into cartels.

14. We demand that all the profits from wholesale trade shall be shared out.

15. We demand extensive development of provision for old age.

16. We demand the creation and maintenance of a healthy middle-class, the immediate communalization of department stores which will be rented cheaply to small businessmen, and that preference shall be given to small businessmen for provision of supplies needed by the State, the provinces and municipalities.

17. We demand a land reform in accordance with our national requirements, and the enactment of a law to confiscate from the owners without compensation any land needed for the common purpose. The abolition of ground rents, and the prohibition of all speculation in land.

So who put that forward as their party's policy? The US Democrats, the British Labour Party, the Canadian Liberals, some European Social Democratic party? No. It is an extract from the (February 25th., 1920) 25 point plan of the National Socialist German Workers Party and was written by the leader of that party: Adolf Hitler.

So does anyone still believe the big lie that Nazism was Rightist?

The rest of Hitler�s program was aimed mainly at the Jews but in Hitler's day it was very common for Leftists to be antisemitic. And the increasingly pervasive anti-Israel sentiment among the modern-day Left -- including the Canadian government -- shows that modern-day Leftists are not even very different from Hitler in that regard. Modern-day Leftists still seem to think that dead Jews are a good thing.

A study of history is MOST instructive.



Feisty Italian Left-wing writer, Oriana Fallaci, is also horrified at the antisemitism of the modern-day Left:

�I find it shameful that almost all of the left ... forgets the contribution made by the Jews to the fight against fascism ... I find it shameful that in part through the fault of the left--or rather, primarily through the fault of the left (think of the left that inaugurates its congresses applauding the representative of the PLO, leader in Italy of the Palestinians who want the destruction of Israel) -- Jews in Italian cities are once again afraid ...

I find it shameful and see in all this the rise of a new fascism, a new nazism. A fascism, a nazism, that much more grim and revolting because it is conducted and nourished by those who hypocritically pose as do-gooders, progressives, communists, pacifists, Catholics or rather Christians, and who have the gall to label a warmonger anyone like me who screams the truth.

I see it, yes, and I say the following ... I have often had disagreements with the Israelis, ugly ones, and in the past I have defended the Palestinians a great deal. Maybe more than they deserved. But I stand with Israel, I stand with the Jews ... And disgusted by the anti-Semitism of many Italians, of many Europeans, I am ashamed of this shame that dishonors my Country and Europe. At best, it is not a community of States, but a pit of Pontius Pilates.


Oriana Fallaci (aged 73) was a Resistance fighter in her youth.



I have previously written at some length to point out that both Fascism and Nazism are simply nationalistic variants of Leftism and on November 5th on this blog I pointed out that Iraq�s Saddam Hussein could reasonably be considered to be a Fascist because he is in fact not simply a military dictator but rather the Iraqi head of the Pan-Arab Ba�ath Socialist party. I gave a potted history of Ba�athism at the time but if you have the stomach for it you can read some actual Ba�ath propaganda on the subject here.

Jason Soon in his post of December 2nd has also taken up the theme and shows that Saddam is in fact thoroughly post-modernist! And that makes him a very trendy Leftie! Truth is stranger than fiction.

No wonder the Western Left hate the idea of us attacking Saddam. He is one of them. They no more care about his brutality than they cared about Stalin�s brutality. Their �compassion� is yet again shown to be a sham.

Did you hear about the dyslectic Devil-worshipper who sold his soul to Santa?
