As I listened to the third hour this morning of Glenn Beck's radio show, he referenced the ruling party as the National Progressive or National Socialist Party. As Mr. Beck made the reference, I thought that Mr. Beck had referenced the modern rulers as Nazis.
Now before you go ballistic over that comment, people should understand the reference the root “Nazi” itself, as it means “National.” Such was used in venues as Italy's Autodromo Nazionale di Monza (The National Autodrome of Monza), the home of the Gran Premio Santander d'Italia. But the most infamous “stereotype” of the root “Nazi” comes from the shorthand abbreviation of the entire name of the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, the National Socialist Workers Party of Germany.
In light of the move of this nation to the socialist utopia, when looking at the entire Nazi reference from a literal standpoint, this nation is truly run, as Mr. Beck would reference, by the National Socialist Workers Party of America – Nationalsozialistische Amerikaner Arbeiterpartei. It is truly “Nazi” when considering the history of words and the meanings.
Here's an interesting take from The American Spectator. ◙
