    But next year we'll look back on all this with 2020 vision.

    It was due twice before. Why would October be different?

    So why are we celebrating it today?


    And today, the celebrations are happening in France, involving the Allied nations who were involved in fighting to take back the freedom of Europe from a right wing extremist who wanted only the genetically pure white races to have rights and everyone one else, based on their skin colour, religion, sexuality, etc, to be treated as less worthy.

    It's a good job some of us still believe in what the Allies fought and died for.

    Nigel Farage is just following a different British tradition. Stop being such an intolerant politically correct snowflake.

    I believe he was more of a socialist. National Socialism (German: Nationalsozialismus), more commonly known as Nazism from : Nazism - Wikipedia

    the Allies fought and died to reclaim the occupied lands of Europe from Germany, not specifically for the reasons you listed. Having prevented Germany from invading the UK the next logical step was to force them out of the occupied France, etc. there is not doubt that certain individuals (not just one) used the situation to further their ideologies ( much like is happening in the Labour party) but D-Day was about the beginning of the process to free the occupied lands of Europe from a foreign aggressor nothing more.

    The far right like to claim he was a socialist because his party contained the word "Social". That's a bit like UKIP having UK in their title, when they are only interested in England, or the English Defence League having English in their title, when they mean "white right wingers".
    A question, though, is did you read the link you provided?

    National Socialism (German: Nationalsozialismus), more commonly known as Nazism (/ˈnɑːtsiɪzəm, ˈnæt-/),[1] is the ideology and practices associated with the Nazi Party—officially the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei or NSDAP)—in Nazi Germany, and of other far-right groups with similar aims.

    Nazism is a form of fascism and showed that ideology's disdain for liberal democracy and the parliamentary system, but also incorporated fervent antisemitism, anti-communism, scientific racism, and eugenics into its creed. Its extreme nationalism came from Pan-Germanism and the Völkisch movement prominent in the German nationalism of the time, and it was strongly influenced by the Freikorps paramilitary groups that emerged after Germany's defeat in World War I, from which came the party's "cult of violence" which was "at the heart of the movement."[2]

    Nazism subscribed to pseudo-scientific theories of racial hierarchy and Social Darwinism, identifying the Germans as a part of what the Nazis regarded as an Aryan or Nordic master race.[3] It aimed to overcome social divisions and create a German homogeneous society based on racial purity which represented a people's community (Volksgemeinschaft). The Nazis aimed to unite all Germans living in historically German territory, as well as gain additional lands for German expansion under the doctrine of Lebensraum and exclude those who they deemed either community aliens or "inferior" races.

    The term "National Socialism" arose out of attempts to create a nationalist redefinition of "socialism", as an alternative to both Marxist international socialism and free market capitalism. Nazism rejected the Marxist concepts of class conflict and universal equality, opposed cosmopolitan internationalism, and sought to convince all parts of the new German society to subordinate their personal interests to the "common good", accepting political interests as the main priority of economic organization.[4]
