From Susan Stamper at the Appeal-Democrat:

What group historically despised the free market, embraced policies like government-supplied jobs, guaranteed retirement and free healthcare? They were zealous animal rights advocates, promoted gun control, abortion and euthanasia. They were fanatical environmentalists, endorsed a healthy lifestyle, railed against smoking, promoted organic veganism and sponsored alternative medicine. And in their universities, they promoted racial quotas and held to strict, politically correct, speech codes.

The Democratic Party you say? Not quite. The correct answer points to one of the most reviled groups in history — the Nazis during the 1930s. Their motto, “Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz,” loosely translated meant: Service before self; the good of the many is more important than the good of the individual. The motto was nothing more than propaganda; meant to make you feel good, and not much more; a feel-good sentence for a very bad agenda.

An interesting read with some more facts that should make Democrats think twice about their agenda.

I’d also recommend this article from a while back.
