    All sort of right but wrong.

    Hitler didn't called the party anything. It was the NSDAP (National Socialist German Workers Party) and he changed it to just National Socialist Party. Anton Drexler was the first leader.

    But why would Hitler join that party if he hated communism?

    Of course, apologies if I didn't make that clear, Hitler didn't found the NSDAP.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    I thought socialism was just a less extreme type of communism.

    Er, well I don't know much about it but I'd say a lot of them are imature and do it to look cool. But you can't judge groups of people, no matter what that group may be. Only individuals.

    Haha indeed. "Apart from all the murder, genocide, death and destruction, what did the Nazis do wrong???"
