    I hate when people call Greater German National Socialists "Nazis." It is very disrespectful and usually anti-German Jewish supremacists use the word.

    We shouldn't stop using some words in the right way because some liberals and Jews do it to demonize these people, should we? Nazi is an abreged version of a very long word, that is about it.

    You mean like everyone should use N*gger, because it just means "black" in a different language?
    The abbreviation "Nazi" is a weird one anyway, the correct one would be more like NaSo, NS just does fine in this regard, too, no need for "Nazi".

    Yes, we should stop using the word. It shows lack of taste and many of those fake National Socialists(NSM, Skinheads, etc.) in USrael like to call themselves that. Goes to show you how low the term actually is.

    National Sozialist. Thus, Nazi.

    What's the big deal? The term was coined for simplicity's sake, nothing more. It's really no more disrespectful than calling a United States Postal Service Letter Carrier a mailman. Nazi is only a smear-word if you take it as such.

    Except that every single word you typed was invented to be derogatory. Nazi wasn't.

    Re: Who is the Baddest Nazi?

    The point is that Nazi is an abrégé, a short word which means a longer word and even a concept. Here is it means a member of the NSDAP, or something related to the party and its ideology. It is not in "another language", nor is it a "slur" or an "offense".

    We can't compare Nazi with Nigger. Nigger is a slur that comes from a deviation from Negro, which is in another language. Plus, is takes as much time, or more (6 v. 7 letters), to write Nigger than Black.

    Comparing the term "Nazi" with "Bolshevik" is accurately far more accurate, for both means a specific and very controversial political movement. Bolshevik has an even longer meaning because it is only faction within the Marxist Russian Social Democratic Labour Party. Most people react badly to the word Bolshevik: nevertheless, it is still used by historians and most people interested in Russian revolutions.

    "Who is the baddest member of the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei"? Is this better? Does that make National-Socialism more accepted among folks?

    We can't solve a problem with semantic switch. Your hostile attitude toward this word actually looks to me like the Austrian government withdrawing Hitler's nationality: sterile symbolic actions without any will to go the roots of the problem*.

    * The problem being here the incredibly bad repudation the Nazi era and regime gained after WWII.

    No, the term "Nazi" was invented by the political left (Socialists) who didn't want to create an association of the word "Socialism" to their political enemy, the NSDAP.
    The only NSDAP member I can think of who actively used this word, was indeed Dr. Göbbels who himself once used to be a Socialist of the left.
    Btw, that is also the reason why it is not in the correct form "NaSo", because many socialists groups of the left have had organizations with "So", e.g. JuSos (Junge Sozialisten) etc.

    I don't get mad if someone uses this word, and I don't think it is terrible insulting or anything, but I do try to stay away from it.
