I don't disagree with the literal interpretation of your words. I hope you don't agree with a literal interpretation of history.


I must admit I have never heard the term literalism used to describe a method of historical interpretation.

Either way though, any interpretation of history does not support the existence of a Red-Brown Alliance in any real significant form. A few writers proposed the idea, most notably Francis Parker Yockey, but even amongst those sorts all of them were still anti-communists who just saw a temporary alliance as the most efficient way to destroy the liberal west and replace it.

Soviets weren't nationalistic at all. But then again, they weren't real Communists were they?


The Soviets goal at least on paper was to unite the worldwide proletariat against the rich. The Nazi goal was to unite the German people, rich and poor, against everyone else.

Citing PragerU, a far-right blog channel that has hosted multiple actual fascists, as "proof" that fascism is actually socialism.

Let's just forget that fascists have always and continue to murder socialists because of their fundamental and radical differences.

Since when did PragerU host actual fascists? Dennis Prager, founder of PragerU, is an Orthodox Jew. He strongly opposes fascism. In this video, Prager condemns Nazism.

And while fascists did murder other socialists, that doesn't mean fascists aren't socialists. Socialists believe in a government-controlled economy and overthrowing the bourgeoisie. Fascists believe in a government-controlled economy and overthrowing those from stronger, wealthier nations.

PragerU actually enlightened me. Here's a tip: Start watching Prager with an open mind and you'll be a thousand times more proficient at debate. Even if you still disagree with it, at least you'll understand the conservative ideology. That is the point of debate.

Trump is a genius. His outspoken rhetoric got him elected. It triggered the Democrat Party. It showed the Americans how deceptive the fake news media was.

When Trump makes a simple joke, the media twist it to match their thoughts. The media then reports it a lot, gaining Trump some coverage, while making the fake news media continue losing support. So, Trump made lots of simple jokes for the media to twist.

Ah PragerU's timeless argument of "Nazis are left wing, socialist is in the NAME you libtards.

Nazis arent nationalist it doesnt matter that it says it in the name."

It's more than just the name. The actual ideology of fascism matches more with that of the far-left than it does to that of the far-right. Overthrowing the oppressors, willingly surrendering the person to the state, assaulting anyone who doesn't conform to the beliefs, etc.

Granted, Nazis may hold national identity crucial. However, their reasoning for this is to overthrow the stronger, wealthier nations (similar to how Marxism involves overthrowing the bourgeoisie). Conservatives value national identity to reduce racial/sexual discrimination, while Nazis use it to further discrimination.

Nazi: "If you're not a native-born like me, you are different, and I cannot connect with you. I don't care if you're a law-abiding citizen of the same nation as me."
Conservative: "What does it matter whether you're white or black, male or female - you're a law-abiding American, just like me, and that connects us together."

You think so? I'd be more of the opinion that if you go to a rally where there are a bunch of Nazis on your side, and you decide to hang around with the Nazis instead of turning right the fuck around and going home, then you're basically a Nazi too.

The alt-right is so loosely defined that it's almost impossible to assign any beliefs to it as a whole. It's basically a blanket covering anything from "I'm proud of Confederate history" to "Hitler didn't do enough". Those four beliefs you mentioned are more popular in the latter, who are of course the most vocal of the alt-right.

Yep. Some do support capitalism while others support a form of socialism. Either way, they (the alt-right) are grotesque people.

No no, I mean that they are far-right socialists. Not that they are the far-right wing of the Nazi party. Comparing their socialism to, say, Lenin's socialism is incredibly night-and-day by all accounts.

Edit: My emphasis in the original quote is that it was the only socialist part of the nazi party, even if strasserism is very... Controversial as to whether or not it's actually socialism at all.

No it fucking doesn’t.

Yet it seems (at least to me) as though the alt-right hardly gets as much condemnation as Antifa seems to get on a regular basis.

Yes, they host fascists. For example, Steven Crowder. Also, being an Orthodox Jew and being a fascist are far from mutually exclusive. In fact, the more orthodox and zionist Jews tend to be more fascist.
And while fascists did murder other socialists, that doesn't mean fascists aren't socialists. Socialists believe in a government-controlled economy and overthrowing the bourgeoisie. Fascists believe in a government-controlled economy and overthrowing those from stronger, wealthier nations.

Socialists believe in dismantling the socioeconomic hierarchies that oppress the workers and various other persecuted groups. Fascists believe in reinforcing hierarchies to benefit an ever-narrower corner of their society, such that the weakest and most vulnerable elements of society are considered worthy of death.

To open my mind to fucking PragerU is to lower my defenses against counterfactual, bigoted, and globally destructive propaganda. No thank you. Find a legitimate authority to support your arguments next time. Or, better yet, defend your arguments yourself.

When Trump makes a simple joke, the media twist it to match their thoughts. The media then reports it a lot, gaining Trump some coverage, while making the fake news media continue losing support. So, Trump made lots of simple jokes for the media to twist.

Trump literally speaks like a child, doesn't know how key elements of his government work, can't pay attention for as much as 10 seconds, and whines about the media when they show everyone a fraction of how stupid he is. He has failed his way through his businesses, and he's failing his way through the presidency.
It's more than just the name. The actual ideology of fascism matches more with that of the far-left than it does to that of the far-right. Overthrowing the oppressors, willingly surrendering the person to the state, assaulting anyone who doesn't conform to the beliefs, etc.

Fascism is literally about installing oppressors, not overthrowing them. Far-leftism across the fucking board believes in the total dissolution of the state, not "willingly surrendering the person to the state". The facts of political speech show that the left has had its speech suppressed far more than the right.
Granted, Nazis may hold national identity crucial. However, their reasoning for this is to overthrow the stronger, wealthier nations (similar to how Marxism involves overthrowing the bourgeoisie).

Marxism also involves overthrowing the concept of a state at all. You don't build a totalitarian state and empire-build to do that.
Conservatives value national identity to reduce racial/sexual discrimination, while Nazis use it to further discrimination.

LMAO
Nazi: "If you're not a native-born like me, you are different, and I cannot connect with you. I don't care if you're a law-abiding citizen of the same nation as me."
Conservative: "What does it matter whether you're white or black, male or female - you're a law-abiding American, just like me, and that connects us together."

I have never encountered a conservative that actually believes that. If they existed, Trump's comments about Democratic congresswomen would have gotten him convicted in the Senate by now.

Yet it seems (at least to me) as though the alt-right hardly gets as much condemnation as Antifa seems to get on a regular basis.

This is because the alt-right is a political movement with a (worryingly large)violent fringe, while antifa is the violent fringe.

Guess that's why they threw them into death camps and such.

Hitler murdered many political opponents and those who don't exactly conform to his beliefs. Even his own SA officers weren't spared, despite their loyalties.

You think so? I'd be more of the opinion that if you go to a rally where there are a bunch of Nazis on your side, and you decide to hang around with the Nazis instead of turning right the fuck around and going home, then you're basically a Nazi too.

It's important to understand the ideologies and thoughts of those who disagree with you (including that of Nazis). That way, if their ideology is bad (which it is), you can dispute them more easily, because you'll know what they will say and how they will think. This exchange of knowledge is why the First Amendment exists, and it can enlighten all who participate.

I fully understand conservative ideology and am likely a lot more right wing than you are if we're sticking to that archaic scale. PragerU is just awful, give em the boot and just buy books instead.

The idea that PragerU makes one more proficient in anything or somehow enlightens someone damn near made me have a spit take.

PragerU Testimonials:
  • "This is the first truly well done conservative YouTube channel that I've been able to find. It's so nice that youth with a more conservative mindset have a place to explore and expand upon their thoughts. I respect this channel even though I'm a liberal."
  • "As a college student who had his mind opened by PragerU, I'm so happy to be donating a portion of what little money I have. There's no price on what you're doing and know that you're doing your part in exposing future generations to a better way of life!"
  • "PragerU, unfortunately, didn't exist until AFTER I graduated college, but since listening it has helped clarify some of my views and gives me a better perspective on why I believe what I believe. It has equipped me to better articulate my values to my peers and for that I am forever grateful."
  • "I'm left of center, yet look forward to each new video. I'm in complete agreement with your views on morality, and common sense life advice. Even the videos I disagree with, I like, because they make me scratch my head."
  • "As a high school student in the Chicago area, I have had liberal views forced upon me in education and by my peers ever since I was a child. Thanks to PragerU that I am able to understand the truth and educate others correctly."
  • "PragerU has opened my eyes to so many things. It's clear and concise way of explaining things has supplied me with the arguments I need to take on the left in the uk. It is the thing I look forward to the most on a Monday, long may it continue."
  • "I'm 28 and I've been listening to you for 4 years. I've always heard you talk about prageru but I never actually visited the site. 4 days ago I decided to finally check it out and from then until now, I have watched every video you have on thete and have even had 2 friends who have started to learn from there as well. The videos are very informative and keeps you wanting more. To anyone who was like me and has yet to go to the site, I strongly advise you try it out, you won't be disappointed. Thank you Mr. Prager for all your good doing. Manny"

PragerU Impact Report (last page):
  • "I used to be a communist, but thanks to PragerU, I am now a conservative"
  • "From radical leftie to an open-minded critical thinker, and I owe it all to you."
