Nazi Germany ideals were encouraged and assisted by American leftist, progressive thinkers, like Margaret Sanger, not Republicans, conservatives or Christians like Abraham Lincoln.
But Hitler would not be able to implement his ideas until he came to power. In November of 1923, he and his Brownshirts took over the Burgerbraukeller, a popular Munich beer hall. The following day, he and 2,000 members of the Nazi Party marched on Munich to seize control.
They were met by police and stopped He was arrested and sent to Landsburg Prison. There, he dictated Mein Kampg to his fellow prisoner, Rudolf Hess. As created by Hitler, National Socialism is the determination fo create a new man: There will no longer exist any individual arbitrary will, nor realms in which the individual belongs to himself. The time of happiness as a private matter is over.
This is radically different from the principles of the founding of America and Lincoln. The principles of our founding is based on freedom, enterprise, rights, justice, not oppression or forcing people to act or be the same.
Where did he get many of his ideas? From American progressives and Democrats. He wanted more, not less control over the personal lives of people. He would not have gotten along with Donald Trump, with his laissez faire approach to business, by eliminating dozens and dozens or regulations.
Hitler might not have been able to implement his plan had he not learned to lie about his true intensions: “If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”
Where did he get his plan to kill vast quantities of people? From the Democrat Party. He often praised Jacksonian Democrats for the extermination of the red savages, who would could not be tamed by captivity.
He admired how they gunned down millions of red skins to a few hundred thousand. They would keep a modest remnant under observation in a cage.
His idea was to do to the Poles, the Slavs, the Eastern Europeans and the Russians precisely what the Jacksonian Democrats did to the Indians. He would be able implement his plans after he came to power in 1933.
One scary aspect to his relationship with American progressives is that FDR and Hitler admired each other for their progressive ideals.
Here is what the Nazi newspaper said of the FDR administration: “We too as National German Socialist are looking toward America.” It congratulated FDR for replacing the uninhibited frenzy of market speculation with national socialist strains of thought.
Of FDR’s new deal, the Nazi newspaper said: “We fear only the possibility that it might fail.
Hitler quickly consolidated his power. He executed members of the Brownshirts who had challenged his authority, during the famous night of the long knives.
Some try to portray Hitler was a right winger by suggesting he was anti-gay. But he knew that the Brownshirt leader, Ernst Rhone was a notorious homosexual as were many other Brownshirts. (He suggested that he, not Hitler was the true leader fo the Nazi Party.)
When Hitler showed up to arrest Rhone, his room and bed was filled with boys. When Himmler urged Hitler to purge the gay Brownshirts, out of the Nazi movement, he refused. He said he didn’t care what the Brownshirts did in private, as long as they were good fighters.
He was no social conservative. Quite the contrary. Hitler adopted much of his ideas for eliminating extraneous people from American Progressives through eugenics, an American Progressive cause whose goal was to improve society.
Margaret Sanger was one such eugenics progressive who wanted to help humanity by eliminating people who she labeled human weeds, those who were corrupting and weakening the gene pool.
The relationship between American Progressives like Sanger and Hitler was so close that Hitler wrote “fan mail” to one of her eugenics colleagues, Madison Grant, the head of the New York Zoological Society.
Hitler wrote: “Your writings are my Bible.”
During a meeting between Madison Grant and Whiteney, another eugenicist, Grant is discussing a nice letter from Hitler, and eugenicist friend who has an identical letter from him.
In other words, American progressives and eugenicists had a tremendous impact on Hitler and his programs to eliminate entire populations of people who he thought needed to be killed.
Unfortunately, as successful as progressives with promoting eugenics, they were also successful at hiding the link between them and Hitler, Nazi Germany and the policies that contributed to the atrocities perpetrated by Germany.
