YT Clip: ‘Alt-Right’ Similar to SturmAbteilung (SA) than Nazis (NSDAP)

In the last few days, we have heard a lot about how the ‘alt-right’ in USA are like an american version of the Nazis. However as the YT clip embedded later on in this post correctly points out, the ‘alt-right’ is much more similar to the Sturmabteilung (SA) than the Nazi party. The main point made in the clip is that the Nazi Party (NSDAP) was far more single-minded and centralized than its paramilitary wing aka the Sturmabteilung (SA).

But first a bit of context..

While the Nazi Party (NSDAP) was fairly centralized and favored by the elite and bourgeoisie, its paramilitary arm (SA) drew most of its membership from the working class. At its peak, the SA enjoyed a membership of three millions- largely fueled by the high rates of underemployment and unemployment among working class men (often veterans of WW1) in Weimar-era Germany. In fact, there is considerable historical evidence to suggest that many members of the SA had strong socialist sympathies.

This phenomenon, colorfully labelled as the Beefsteak Nazi (brown on the outside, red on the inside), was quite widespread among the ranks of the SA. The socialist leanings of the SA leadership was one of the main reasons behind the so-called “Night of the Long Knives” in 1934, which culminated in the killing of the top leaders of SA including Ernst Röhm.

Another point made in the YT clip is that current situation in USA has a peculiar resemblance to the street brawls between members of the SA (right) and various Communist parties (left) such as those occurred during the Weimar republic. It also very briefly touches on the very real possibility of this developing into some sort of intra-national conflict, which is kinda like a civil war but between political factions in same geographical locations as opposed to distinct regions.

    I suspect the metaphorical langemesser are out already and thanks goodness.

    Some .idiots on the Alt Right did tolerate the Neo Nazis and White Supremacists since at least in theory they are anti Communist ,

    It was a mistake to invite them but understandable given that important Republicans, Rubio, McCain and Romney seem to be sympathizers with AntiFa which is a terrorist Communist group

    Sometimes though the enemy of my enemy is just my enemies enemy. Live and learn.

    My guess is that after the sh*t-show in Charlottesville, the Neo Nazis won’t be back again.

      “Sometimes though the enemy of my enemy is just my enemies enemy. Live and learn.”

      Learned that one at a shit pit called Inmalafide.

      “It was a mistake to invite them but understandable given that important Republicans, Rubio, McCain and Romney seem to be sympathizers with AntiFa which is a terrorist Communist group.”

      Not sympathizers to a communist group. But if they can make a buck of Juan or Jane, they will do it before they make a buck off Chuck. There used to by a WN sympathizing blogger named GL Piggy. He seemed to think that someone like RMoney was gonna give him a break because they were both white guys. He failed to see that Rmoney worships the almighty dollar and doesn’t give a flying fuck about him. Kinda like a Clinton supporter who talks about transgendered bathrooms and how good the stock market is all whilst ignoring that many people in the US don’t even have $500 stashed for an emergency.

      “My guess is that after the sh*t-show in Charlottesville, the Neo Nazis won’t be back again.”

      Bullshit. These people are lowlifes who have nothing to lose. The only thing WNs from the lower part of society have is their ideology. They won’t stop until they’re getting stomped into the ground.

      By the way: What’s the deal with foreigners like McInnes (Canadian) or Yiannopoulos (British) being involved in this American alt-right thing? In my view they’re just in it for the sake of money and whoring for attention. I don’t think they’re really convinced in anything and are just using the opportunity to get further ahead careerwise. Are there any American WNs who told them to fuck off already?

        I might have been unclear, they won’t be back to any .Alt Right events period not that they’d go away entirely.

        As far as McInnes and Yiannpolous are not .Alt Right but .Alt Lite which is mainly just a way to make money of soft-peddled dissent

        There are basically 5 factions Nazis, White Supremacists , White Nationalists. .Alt Right and .Alt Lite with some overlap

        the Nazis and WN are properly far Left anyway and have the self discipline of a three year old on Red Kool Aid

        The WN guys look normal and act normal , the .Alt Right is normal and the .Alt Lite is just everybody else like the Trump guys also normal

        The last three can deal, the Nazis, KKK and WS assholes not so much. No one will miss them

    This guy in the vid was way off the mark calling t-rump a “PATSY” lol! I don’t see it.
    You can watch trump channel Adolf Hitler in many of his speeches. imo it made him very popular.

    Adolf was an Austrian born on the Inn river which is the border of Austria and Germany. Adolf was also what they used to refer to as a “Hun” during WW1 so he was NO friend to Americans believe me. The USMC fought a famous battle against Hitlers Ilk at the battle of ‘Belleau Woods’ look it up sometime.
