I absolutely love how Beck uses one of the Right’s leading intellectuals, Jonah Goldberg, to open this documentary with a bang: Adolph Hitler and the Nazis were leftists. They called themselves national socialists with good reason.
Quote of the first few minutes: “the nazis versus the communists was akin to Coca Cola versus Pepsi.” Heh.
“First brown, then red. The general understanding [...] was that Nazism was the stepping stone to the victory of Socialism and Communism. Nazism and Socialism really were (and are) little brothers. The only difference is nazis’ obsession with race. Other than that, they’re exactly the same.
It’s quite brave of Goldberg and Beck to address these similarities, though. The mainstream media will undoubtedly attack them even more ferociously after this documentary.
