What is a Demzi?

During the years that led to WWII, the word “Nazi” was used as a derogatory term against the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei or NSDAP, translated in English as National Socialist German Worker’s Party.

Question: Why aren’t we calling left wing democrats Demzis?

Hail Epictetus! This is an EXCELLENT suggestion as the comparisons are too numerous to list. You’re correct about the term “Nazi” being derogatory. Long before the rise of Adolf Hitler, the term “Nazi” was used by Germans as a derogatory word to describe a backwards peasant or an AWKWARD and CLUMSY person, two of many derogatory words that describe those on today’s “political left” (Democrats) as explained in our Home Page. In his 1926 booklet titled “Der Nazi-Sozi,” future German Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels used the word “Nazi” only as part of the phrase, “Nazi-Sozi,” an abbreviation for “National Socialism.” As Hitler rose to power, Germans who lived in exile and disagreed with his racist policies toward Jews, coined the phrases “Nazi,” “Nazi Germany,” “Nazi regime,” etc., to insult Hitler and his followers. No one in Germany used those phrases including Hitler, Goebbels, Hermann Goring, and other German leaders.

If “Nazis” characterized Germany’s “National Socialists,” I think “Demzis” PERFECTLY characterizes our nation’s “Democrat Socialists” and we will refer to them as “Demzis” from now on. Publius

It troubles me to no end when I see Republican leaders censored from Facebook, Tweeter, etc. Our constitution is being ripped apart in broad daylight by the Demzis.
