We look into the burning (at least for some) question of whether members of the National German Socialist Workers' Party were accurately classified as "socialists".

A simple "yes" would have sufficed.

Ah! So the socialists of snopes don't want people to think national socialists are socialists.

Naturally.

"Above all, the Nazis were German white nationalists."

No, no they were not:

"I am sure that the Japanese, the Chinese and the peoples of Islam will always be closer to us than, for example, France, in spite of the fact that we are related by blood"

-Adolf Hitler

This article has good information, but too much opinion in it - use documented quotes only if you are doing research.

The article rightly states that Hitler only gave lip service to socialism while really just being after power, while leaving out that most if not all socialist and communist leaders have done the same thing. Another way of describing socialism is, "Let's bamboozle the workers into thinking that they are going to benefit," while really it's the leaders and their select favorites who are to benefit. The Snopes article appears to make the common mistake of equating crony capitalism (i.e. fascism) with the free market The article also fails to state that socialism is an impossible ideal, see Mises, Ludwig von. Socialism: An Economic and Sociological Analysis. Lulu Press, Inc, 2015. Beyond the article, the real comparison is not between left and right but between liberty and coercion.

So Hitler was a communist according to definition

The reason the nazi party was called the National Socialists German Workers party is;

Nationalits because they wanted what is best for their nation,

Socialists because they wanted what is best for their society,

German because they where german,

Workers because they needed the workers support.

"A socialist is one who serves the common good without giving up his individuality or personality or the product of his personal efficiency. Our adopted term "Socialist" has nothing to do with Marxian Socialism. Marxism is anti-property; true socialism is not. Marxism places no value on the individual, or individual effort; or efficiency; true Socialism values the individual and encourages him in individual efficiency, at the same time holding that his intrests as an individual must be in consonance with those in the community. All grate invencions, discoveries, achievments where first the product of an individual brain. It is charged against me that I am against property, that I am an atheist. Bough charges are false." - A. Hitler.

In his own speech Hittler said that he wanted to wage war on everyone on the laber unions and on the capital owners, on the freedom of germans and their subjigators, on the the government and on the anarchy, on the church and on atheism, ..... ect. ect. He said he was waging war on everything so finding a qote of him saying he fough the same enemies as leftists does not prove he was a leftis. He fought everyone because he wanted to make the world the way he wanted it to be and almost nothing was the way he wanted it to be.
