NDP in Germany is Neo-Nazi.Exneratunrisk, as an Austrian you should know a bit the history of Germany, Austrians were Germans quite a long time. Of course NSDAP was a lower-class/workers party.Whether I am Austrian or not is not relevant (I feel like a world citizen). Historians "worldwide" have analyzed that the source of the German fascism was a fiendish mix of members of the education bourgeoisie, romantic nature admirers and admirers of the light and pure nordic gods. Workers support was a fake from the beginning.This is not to excuse the masses. They participated the horror regime and sang their murderous songs. Before the Nazi lead, in Austria the conservatives wanted to prohibit the social democrats and used the "Heimwehr" to reject "class struggle" - this time was known as Austrofascism. In a civil war the social democratic "Schutzbund" lost 1934 against Heimwehr and the army. After, AT voted for the Integration into Germany, strongly forced by the Nazi.But I am afraid, you do not want historical facts - you want to suggest the right==left hide and seek game?p.s. and this all is completely irrelevant to the question: why people are left-wing in the 21st century? One can say: all stupid, all blind, all infamous, ... OK. But wrong facts, bad arguments and faulty logic make the discussion boring.
