Neo Nazis aren’t really known for their intelligence in the first place, but it’s kind of disturbing how skewed their minds really are. It’s not just that they lack any semblance of morality, it’s that most of their beliefs are contradictory. Many of their ideologies are fueled by emotion and are fundamentally illogical. I’m not merely saying this because I disagree with their cause. Most of their beliefs just aren’t in line with one another, period. Here’s a few reasons why:
1. You can’t be a patriotic Nazi in America. While American patriotism is defined by one’s admiration for this country, it’s often associated with supporting the military nowadays. In 1945, the U.S. and Allied Forces put an end to the Nazi Regime. Our ancestors fought and died to free Europe from the shroud of Nazism. So, you can’t really support our armed forces, if you adopt the name of our former enemy. Sorry, you can’t go to Germany either, because they did away with that whole pesky Nazi thing too.
2. While the Alt-Right may share some of the same ultraconservative beliefs as the Nazi Party, their core economic beliefs would be very different. Members of the Alt-Right have adopted conservative economic views, which are Capitalistic in nature. The National Socialist German Workers Party ultimately rejected Capitalism, so they’re kind of messing up on the economic front as well. Looks like these guys should be feeling the Bern.
3. The Nazis despised the Jewish people. They used propaganda to convince German citizens that they were members of a “Master Race” and that Jews were subhuman. Neo-Nazis are still convinced they are members of the “Master Race”, yet they believe that Jewish people are controlling the world. If they were really members of the “Master Race”, then why aren’t they in control? Hmmm. Looks like someone should drop the tiki torches and pick up the Torah.
4. Neo Nazis preach about the sanctity of American virtues, yet are known to attach both the Swastika and Parteiadler to the American Flag. It’s difficult for anyone to say that they love this country, while simultaneously desecrating its flag with either image. Hey, at least these guys know how to sew.
So, aside from the fact that Neo-Nazis and members of the “Alt-Right” state that they’re attempting to protest peacefully, while simultaneously carrying firearms and driving cars into crowds of people, it doesn’t seem that they can hold onto any set of beliefs. I almost feel bad that these people are going through an identity crisis.
