There is an old saying that goes like this: if it looks like a duck and walks like a duck and acts like a duck and quacks or speaks like a duck then it is a duck. This quack test can be used for certain classifications of people as well. Lets take a socialist for an example. This will work just as well for a conservative or for a constitutionalist. If that socialist walks around with other socialists and talks about socialist ideals and votes socialist and espouses a socialist agenda you can bet he is a socialist. The same goes for a capitalist or an anarchist if they pass the quack test.

So how about a Nazi. Will they pass the quack teat? They sure will. Nowadays everyone is calling each other a Nazi. The Israeli's are called Nazis. The Americans are called Nazis. The EU are called Nazis. The Arab leaders and Muslim national leaders are called Nazis. The communist are called Nazis. Everybody is calling everybody else a Nazi. So out of all the people of the world who will pass the quack test to see who is the true Nazi.

First we must see what a Nazi acts like and sounds like and walks like. What does it mean to be a Nazi. First of all Nazism is a form of fascism which according to Merriam Webster means:  a political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition. This would take in  communist leaders like Stalin and Arab leaders like Saddam Hussein. Italy's Mussolini. Whenever you have fascism you usually have thousand and even millions of people dying at the hands of their rulers. For fascist regimes are notorious for killing any who oppose the dictator who is ruling at the time.

Nazism is a form of fascism. So we can look for many people killed by their own Government. The Nazi movement started in Germany by a group eventually led by Adolf Hitler. He called it the Nationalist Socialist German Workers Party. National Socialist is where we get the word Nazi. Some of the distinct characteristics of Nazism are the following: Racial extremism primarily antisemitic, anti parliamentary democracy, anti communism, aggressive and violent nationalism, Totalitarian Government.



We saw all of these characteristics in the country of Germany just before WWII. Hitler became the supreme ruler of Germany. He ridiculed the weak democratic national leaders. He pushed for extreme nationalism setting the German people above all others. Hitler in his antisemitism beliefs selected the Jews who were referred to as an inferior race and set about to eradicate all of the Jews from Germany. Hitler took all rights away from the people and only allowed true Germans any liberties at all. All mixed races were either deported or imprisoned. Any caught helping the Jews were treated as enemies of the state.

Now who would pass these test today? Not America as we have a republican form of democracy with 3 separate parts of the governing body. It can't be Israel because they too have a parliamentary form of democracy and they are definitely not antisemitic. Plus neither of these democracies look to kill all who oppose them. Also these 2 countries enjoy the most personal freedom of any countries in the world.

Then who passes the quack test. Who could accurately be called Nazis? How about nations controlled by radical Muslim leaders or dictators. Iran. Syria, Libya, the PLO and more. All controlled by extremist dictators. All antisemitic wanting racial cleansing by the annihilation of a race of people the Jews and the destruction of their country, Israel. In these countries there are no freedoms or liberties except what the clerical leaders allow. And for those who oppose them swift and severe punishment or death. So when the terms Nazis and fascist are thrown around and directed at Israel lets give it the tried and true, quack test, and we will see who the true Nazis are.
