Twitter user suggests drowning those who correctly say Nazis were socialists

Charlottesville Nazis drowning

The insane hatred of the radical left seems to know no boundaries.  On Monday, a verified Twitter user going by the ironic name of “Lauri Love” said those who correctly observe that Nazis were socialists “will find themselves at the bottom of a f**king river immediately.”

“UPDATE: people who even mentally f**king reach for ‘Nazis were socialist’ will find themselves at the bottom of a f**king river immediately,” Love said.

Translation: Those who correctly cite historic fact should be drowned.

Paul Joseph Watson noticed the tweet and responded: “Nazis were Socialist,” and asked: “Which river are you going to drown me in, oh tolerant progressive?”

Others took Love to task as well:

Love responded by claiming “nuance” and calling those who accurately cite history “idiots.”

Indeed.

The Jewish Virtual Library notes:

In April, 1920, Hitler advocated that the party should change its name to the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP). Hitler had always been hostile to socialist ideas, especially those that involved racial or sexual equality. However, socialism was a popular political philosophy in Germany after the First World War. This was reflected in the growth in the German Social Democrat Party (SDP), the largest political party in Germany.

Hitler, therefore redefined socialism by placing the word ‘National’ before it. He claimed he was only in favour of equality for those who had “German blood.” Jews and other “aliens” would lose their rights of citizenship, and immigration of non-Germans should be brought to an end.

In February 1920, the NSDAP published its first programme which became known as the “Twenty-Five Points.” In the programme the party refused to accept the terms of the Versailles Treaty and called for the reunification of all German people. To reinforce their ideas on nationalism, equal rights were only to be given to German citizens. “Foreigners” and “aliens” would be denied these rights.

To appeal to the working class and socialists, the programme included several measures that would redistribute income and war profits, profit-sharing in large industries, nationalization of trusts, increases in old-age pensions and free education.

No doubt, Love and others like him/her/whatever would call us Nazis for citing historic fact, but it was what it was.

In February 2011, I first said that liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of rage and hate.  Sadly, liberals prove that assertion correct on just about any given day.

Exit question: Do establishment Republicans like Mitt Romney, John McCain and Marco Rubio endorse this threat of violence?
