In order to understand the comparison all one need do is follow the Twitter account of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. As she made the direct comparison to the Jews fleeing Germany to the plight of the immigrants allegedly fleeing South America and converging on the border of the United States and Mexico.
Red Hot Media giving miss Cortez benefit of doubt sat down to analyze the severity of her comment. And has come up with an alternative to her hyperbolic statement. In Germany under Hitler Socialist army, two thirds of German Jews were eliminated. Placed in concentration camps, and death camps because the Germans under Hitler believed the Jews were an inferior race of people.
If miss Cortez were slightly more insightful into world politics and history she would realize that those concentration camps in Germany started as re-education camps. The idea behind them initially was to crush political opposition. Ironically, a member of the Democratic party once suggested Americans be placed into “fun camps” insinuating that no one finds people they disagree with to be fun.
National Socialist German Workers party was the party of Hitler. Some historians have made the claim that it was a ruse on words, to entice people into joining the party, however, there is no evidence that “workers party” is anything but a socialist organization. Which is eerily suspicious of coining the term “democratic socialist”. Begging the question, “what about socialism is so amazing that a politician would want to use that term?”
So, how would someone mandate that an organization completely share with their workers their profits. Profit sharing? Afterall, ownership of the company you work for is a socialist concept. It would have to be government mandated. Therefore the government would take full control of the means of production, and then it would be a government company, not an employee owned company. So, again, where is Socialism so amazing?
Because it has the term democratic? Mob ruling? Does that indicate that should a mob find that there is a law that they find to be obstructive the mob can simply rule that law off the books. One example is that of depriving one of the right to personal property. Should the mob decide that one person should be deprived of the right to speak their mind, then all should be deprived of that right? After all that is democratic.
Even Vladmir Lennon claimed that the ultimate goal of socialism was communism. Whereby the government owns all means of production of goods and services. Who would benefit from that? According to Tim Walsh, “When the government owns and controls businesses like automobile manufacturing, they dictate wages and prices so anybody in the upper management is going to be well-connected to the government because they’ll take care of themselves.”
How does miss Cortez intend to disrupt that? Does her educational background on economics cover the fact that under socialism or communism, the government elite own the people who work as in a proletariat oligarchy? Or is she simply trying to place herself among the government elite to further her fiscal advancement.
Back to Germany and the atrocities committed under the National Socialist Government workers party, AKA, Nazi’s. Below are two graphics of what happened to the people living under this party.
Clearly, miss Cortez needs to rethink her grossly inaccurate information. Red Hot Media will be happy to bring her up to speed should she desire to enter the world of cognitively informed.
