There are a lot more Nazis in America than we realize, and they’re not all dumb or crazy. Many of them are smart and well-educated, but they’re hiding their views because they know that most Americans are anti-Nazi.
The Nazi Party, also called the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, was a political party in Germany between 1919 and 1945. It was named Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (National-Socialist German Workers’ Party) or NSDAP (from 1920 to 1945).
The party’s leader was Adolf Hitler. It was formed as a coalition of several smaller groups, with the intention of uniting them into one large nationalist party. Hitler joined the party on 24 February 1920 and became its leader on 29 July 1921. He continued to consolidate his power over the party until he became dictator of Germany in 1933.

The Nazis were a far-right political party in Germany during the 1920s, led by Adolf Hitler. The party advocated Pan-Germanism—the unification of all Germans under German rule—and antisemitism, racism and eugenics. In 1933, it was renamed as the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (NSDAP) when Hitler formally became head of state and announced that he would establish an authoritarian regime based on racist politics and social Darwinism rather than democracy.
The Nazi Party grew rapidly; from 25 000 members in 1925 to about 100 000 in 1929; then 360 000 in 1932 (when they won 18.3 percent of the vote) to about 2.8 million in 1934 (when they won 17 percent of the vote). In the July 1932 elections the Nazis won 230 seats in the Reichstag. When they failed to gain power in January 1933 by legal means they used force and intimidation to get power. They were helped by the fact that many people believed that the Nazis would bring order to Germany and solve the economic problems.
The Nazis quickly took control of the German government in January 1933. In March they passed a law making them the only political party. Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany.
