Jonah being Jonah, the writer linked to is Brian Resnick, not from 1932, who points to the writing of Nicolas Fairweather on Hitler. You should visit the Fairweather link: the 10 points Fairweather lists in his summary of Hitler represent TEN GOALS THE SOCIALIST OBAMA IS PURSUING RIGHT NOW! Or something. Jonah's link is a preaching-to-the-brainwashed kind of proof: unless you're out of your fucking mind you may see some of the ten things contradicting Jonah's vision of whatever it is his readers are helping him envision when he gets back from walking the dog.
I am, compared to young Jonah the hip South Park conservative, sort of a fuddy duddy, but should it be telling that Jonah's link in his original post ends with "#.T5J_eXhOKw0.twitter"? I mean, has he read the story? Or maybe someone tweeted it to him with a hearty "OMG UR RIGHT!" and he passed it on. Possibly, he saw point 4 listed in the Resnick post - His concern for social betterment ('true Socialism') as a necessary prerequisite to the acceptance of his ideals by the masses. - and thought "AHA! TRUE SOCIALISM! THIS GUY KNOWS WHAT'S WHAT!" and read no further. Perhaps I am just unkind and unhip and everybody gets their news from Twitter, and then does their damndest to read it with the kind of care and attention to detail I could never muster in the service of assembling vast amounts of noble and important scholarship.
The end of Fairweather's essay:
This new party Nazi, or Fascist, it is commonly called is 'National' because Hitler's fundamental ideal is nationalism. It is 'Socialist' (in Hitler's own meaning of the word) because he saw that the people would have to be made comfortable before they would listen to his gospel. It is 'German' because his national aspirations are for Germans only. It is a 'Laborers' party because Hitler intended to appeal particularly to the laboring masses.Know WHO ELSE has his own meaning for words?
