  •  The Nazi's got to power by walking into (1+ / 0-)

    peaceful meetings and savagely beating people.

    By following people home and murdering them in alleys after opposition rallies.

    You seem to have your order of operations badly screwed up.  The Beerhall Putsch failed miserably.  The Nazi movement was almost destroyed.  The street fighting didn't send anyone streaming to their ranks - it delegitimized them almost completely.

    The entire appeal of fascists rests on their claims to strength.  If they're losing street brawls they're just seen as brutal clowns, not a path to law and order.

    When they're attacking peaceful people and then pretending to have won street brawls, they can gain power if they have the backing of Capital.
