To the editor,

Do I have to do this again? Last week another conservative played the Nazi card. This week, Representative Bob Kingsbury joined in. He wrote, "I came into adult status as a First Scout for a Rifle Squad, (to defend the well-being of the people); fighting socialism (The German Nazi’s and “Nazi” stands for “National Socialist Party”).."

The claim he was fighting socialism is from another planet. The "National Socialist Worker's Party" was socialist in name only. Everyone but right wingers knows this. The Nazis were founded by extreme right reactionaries such as the racist Völkisch German nationalist movement and the anti-Communist Freikorps militia culture. Drexler, Feder and Eckart were the main founders of the "German Worker's Party" of 1919 that became the Nazis. Thinking it was another socialist party to watch carefully, Hitler was sent in as a spy but then found he supported the party's ideas. There was almost nothing socialist about Nazi actions when in power. The Nazis even sought to repeal Germany's Healthcare Act of 1871 but Rudolf Hess convinced them not to on the eve of war.

Nazis despised both socialists and democrats; liberals of any stripe. These supporters of democracy were represented by Germany's largest party, the Social Democrat Party. To the Nazis, these socialists and democrats, along with communists and Jews were why Germany lost the War. Hitler outlawed the Social Democrat Party as soon as the Enabling Act passed in 1933. Then the German Communist Party was banned, too. The Social Democrat Party was an ally of the west, Mr Kingsbury! The fascists were not. You fought no German socialists during WW2. Here is who you fought.

Not only were Nazis racists who saw Blacks and Jews as inferiors, Nazis saw women through the neolithic lenses of biological purpose. The 1933 Law for the Encouragement of Marriage paid young women to get married. In 1934 came the Ten Commandments for Choosing a Mate. After four years in the Hitler Youth, every girl at 14 entered the German Ladies League. There they learned how to be a good wife and mother and that their place was in the home. Women were forbidden to wear make-up and long hair had to be put in a bun or braid. Hitler and Mussolini had valuable prizes for women who had four or more kids. Medals, too.

On Hitler's rise to power, Women were removed from the blue collar labor force. Then the professional women were dismissed. 100,000 women teachers found themselves without a job or a union. With Abortion and contraception outlawed; careers destroyed and rights violated, this WAR ON WOMEN caused large numbers of women to flock to liberal political organizations.

On his rise to power, Hitler also sent thousands of brownshirts to arrest homosexuals and close their businesses. 700 were jailed on the first day. A police force (IIS) for tracking homosexuals evolved to become the Reich Office for the Combating of Homosexuality and Abortion. Created by Himmler and Hitler in 1936, it was Germany's bureaucracy for policing the nation's sexual and reproductive lives. By 1939, 100,000 gay men had been arrested in their WAR ON GAYS.

WAR ON IMMIGRANTS! The Nazi's 25 Point Plan (1920) was vehemently anti-immigrant. They attacked those not speaking German in Germany. They attacked cultural diversity by attacking all non-German culture, art, and music as enemies of German purity. The 25 Points wanted the government to shut down all foreign cultural and artistic expressions. WAR ON MULTICULTURALISM!

True socialism nationalizes its industries but when the Nazis came to power they privatized industries instead. Fascism believes in private property and private enterprise — socialism doesn't. Germany's Social Democrats supported workers' rights but the Nazis outlawed unions because they were democratic and socialist. WAR ON UNIONS! To get a job after unions were crushed, workers had to join the party's National Labor Front. Socialism is when the people, through government, control production and distribution while Fascism is a merger of corporate power with state power — CITIZENS UNITED ON CRACK!. Supported by industrial giants, Mussolini's Blackshirts operated similarly, crushing unions and forcing popular socialist mayors to resign. Tens of thousands of liberals, democrats, socialists and communists were murdered by the fascists in Germany, Italy, and Spain. All this before the war!

All the traits of the Nazis listed above are anything but socialist. They are typical right wing regimes: wars against women, workers, unions, immigrants, multiculturalism and homosexuals. You will find them everywhere you find right wingers in power.

Note: The Day before this was published, there was ANOTHER! Nazi cards played!

WI Planned Parenthood Clinic Bombed

Police are investigating a homemade bomb that exploded last night outside of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Grand Chute, Wisconsin. No injuries were reported, and the clinic experienced only minimal damage from a fire caused by the bomb.

Teri Huyuck, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, stated, "Our primary concern today - as always - is our patients staff and volunteers. Women deserve safe and compassionate care, and we are proud to provide it. Rest assured, our doors will remain open for the thousands of women who rely on Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin each year for high quality health care."

The National Abortion Federation reports that last year there were 114 attacks against abortion providers, "including three physicals assaults, one bombing, one incident of arson, 27 counts of vandalism and eight burglaries."

Anti-Choice Medical Malpractice Shields Threaten to Permanently Alter Medical Care for Women

by Jessica Pieklo, Hamline University
Among the new restrictions appearing in anti-abortion bills nationwide, it is the medical malpractice liability shields that have the potential to alter, perhaps permanently, women's relationship with the civil justice system.
Both Kansas and Arizona are advancing measures that exempt doctors from medical malpractice suits should they withhold medical information in order to prevent a woman from having an abortion. These bills also shield doctors from malpractice claims if a woman suffers an injury from a pregnancy as a result of information withheld from her to prevent an abortion. Georgia just snuck a liability shield into their 20-week abortion ban. We can expect more to follow.

Every hear of the Reich Central Office for the Combating of Homosexuality and Abortion? Nazis jailed 100,000 gay men between 1936 and 1936. Records that survivc show that at least 15,000 gays were gassed to death. An SS Doctor VBuarnet conducted experiments and designed hormone implants to cure the homosexuals. In the more fascist Christian circles we have NARTH, the junk science outfit that claims to cure the disorder of being gay. Rubbish!

AND Fascist's CRUSHED unions and arrested socialist leaders. They were murdered by the thousands in Spain, Italy and Germany.

And in Fascist nations, Family Planning went underground. Contraception was hard to come by and abortion was a crime. Imagine illegal condoms. If you had an STD, a doctor could prescribe some for you. 

Who are the Fascist Pigs these days? Its the religious right of every religion but its Dominionist Christianity we have to worry about in the USA. They want nothing less than a Sharia version of Christianity. These people are deluded, sociopathic wolves on an overdose of Machiavelli and Rasputin

One of Herman Goering's Nine Commandments for the Workers was "Woman, pick up a frying pan and a broom and marry a man".

Sounds "FUNDY!"

Here's what fascism was about in Europe. 

The radical right likes to throw around the word socialist indiscriminately as if they actually know the definition of socialism. Socialism is when the people, through the government, own the bulk of the companies of its nation. Seen that lately? Probably not. Venezuela for sure; Cuba, too. Fascism on the other hand involves a corrupt marriage between big business and government. The right doesn't know the definition of fascism either thanks to snake-oil historians like Glen Beck and Jonah Goldberg. 

Mussolini said "Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power". With the Citizens United ruling, Corporations are people and can influence elections with mountains of money. Democracy is losing to the corporate aristocracy which is buying our politicians and determining many of their decisions. 

Mussolini was a socialist until around the end of WWI when he vehemently renounced socialism in favor of his new political ideology of fascism that emphasized militant patriotic nationalism. Ring a bell? Mussolini relentlessly attacked liberalism and socialism. You can read it all HERE. In his manifesto he mentions liberalism and socialism in a negative way 43 times. In contrast to the materialism of socialism, Mussolini claims Fascism is spiritual and uses the term 23 times to define Fascism. Materialism and spiritualism are opposites  Socialism is concerned with the proletariat; fascism is concerned with the power of the state. Fascism is government without any intention of representation. It runs on ideology, not people. Certainly, people are easily confused because no political ideology holds completely unique beliefs.
I read in a local newspaper "Liberals do love to associate conservatives with Nazis but since facts might muddle the charge they never offer any"  Facts? Okay.
In 1920 and 1921 the Italian streets were filled with protesting workers. Mussolini's fascist "blackshirts" were used to crush unions or any other perceived socialism, disrupting their meetings and committing violence in the streets. Mussolini took advantage of the situation by forming alliances with industrial giants and together they finally trade unions to crumble and socialists mayors to resign. In 1927, Mussolini gave some rights back to unions as long as they were state or party controlled. Hey, Scott Walker!
In 1933, when Hitler gained dictatorial powers with the "Enabling Act", he abolished labor unions and replaced them with the Nazi Party's "Labor Front". Trade unions were socialist and Hitler, like Mussolini and Franco, hated socialism. Mussolini abolished trade unions, too. Sound familiar? Hitler used "law and order" to destroy individual rights. Fascists ended collective bargaining rights. Together, Mussolini, Hitler and Franco arrested hundreds of thousands of communists, socialists and democratic socialists because socialism was the enemy of fascism.
Hitler's fascism emphasized "real Germans" like our right wingers emphasize "real Americans". Fascists supported laws that would attack any cultural diversity in the press, the arts or radio in Germany. They thought any foreign cultural influence would strip Germany of its soul, so they mounted a cultural war just as our right wingers do. Liberal professors were targeted. Any use of a non-German language was unpatriotic. Note the vehemence of the English-only crowd.
German Fascism was vehemently anti-immigrant. Mussolini declared universal suffrage was the greatest of lies. If you follow America's right wing you will notice the harsh anti-immigrant rants. Conservatives also have a long history of opposing universal suffrage from religious equality, abolition and women's suffrage, to child labor laws, reproductive freedom and gay rights.
In 1936 Hitler and Heinrich Himmler created the bureaucracy, THE REICH OFFICE FOR THE COMBATING OF HOMOSEXUALITY AND ABORTION. The Reich, as soon as it was empowered by dictatorial powers raided every gay business in the nation and shut their doors. Between 1936 and 1939, 100,000 gay men were imprisoned at one time or another. A Tea Party dream I'd say. What remains of records from concentration camps like Buchenwald evidence the gassing of at least 15,000 gay men. In his speeches, Himmler bragged about pretending to allow gays to escape the camps so they could kill them. In the camps certain doctors were tasked with finding a way to cure gays. One way was to force them to have sex with prostitutes. Straight porn, too, Homosexuals that found themselves in the concentration camps at Buchenwald and Neuengamme were experimented upon by the Danish SS doctor, Carl Vaernet. The SS gave him a research position, a staff, laboratories, financial support, and camp inmates with which to experiment upon. His treatments included castration for the incurable, and hormones for the others. Under the Nazi doctrine of re-education, Vaernet had developed a hormone implant for homosexuals
Fascism was about family values! Contraception and/or abortion were outlawed by Mussolini, Hitler and Franco. Family planning clinics disappeared. Hitler awarded women with the the Motherhood Cross who had given birth to the largest number of children. Lesser Medals were the Golden Cross for eight children, the Silver Cross for six children, and a Bronze for those who had four children. Four kids! Shameful! Mussolini's government paid extra benefits to the exceptionally reproductive! Are you catching on yet? Women were supposed to be the helpmates and babymakers of men. Before Hitler came into power there were 100,000 female teachers but that ended with Hitler's rise to power. Women went home until so many of the men were killed they had to go back to work. 

If it walks like a goose, its probably a goose. 

There is plenty more to address but this was originally for a printed newspaper so space was an issue.
