Quote of the Day

“As a nation, we began by declaring that ‘all men are created equal.’ We now practically read it ‘all men are created equal, except negroes.’ When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read ‘all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics.’ When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty – to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocrisy.” ― Abraham Lincoln, Lincoln Letters

What, really, is a NAZI?

The term NAZI is thrown around a lot, particularly by various leftists and Social justice Warriors. To them, a Nazi is anyone who is Politically, socially, fiscally, or religiously conservative (except for Muslims) Anyone they disagree with In reality a Nazi is a member of the (thankfully defunct) Nazional Socialistiche Deutscher Arbeire Partei (NSDAP) The national Socialist German Worker’s party.  A left-wing semi-labor union that became marginal in 1919, and expanded to control an entire nation with approximately 7% of the vote.
