    I never watch this dilrod Glenn Beck, so I don't know what he says exactly except secondhand; but I've debated his supporters online, when they've tried to conflate Marxism and Nazism.  They're, uh, really intellectually honest about it when you point out that Hitler's first victims were the Communist deputies, followed closely by the Social Democrats; and that the Socialist wing of the Nazi Party left, in the person of Otto Strasser and his followers, because Hitler supported the big industrialists instead of the workers in the 1930 steelworkers' strike; or that, although big business was marshaled to the war effort and subordinate to Hitler and (to some extent) to Goering's raw materials allocation under the Four-Year Plan, big industrialists made plenty, plenty of big cash under Hitler, as they didn't under Stalin.

    One guy even claimed that "big business prospered under Stalin too!"  Uh... yeah.
