    Isn't the word 'nazi' an abbreviation for 'National Socialism' - or did I just make that up?
    Yes, and they did call themselves 'Nazi'.

    It is true that German's generally refer to the swastika as the 'Hakenkreuz'

    The nazis never called it a swastika, they called it a hooked cross. If it was based on an actual swastika it was a very simplified version. Come to think of it, they didn't call themselves nazis either.
    No! It was Nostradamus that referred to it as the Crooked Cross in one of his Quatrains about Hister.


    6th Century, Quatrain #49:
    49
    The great Pontiff of the party of Mars
    Will subjugate the confines of the Danube:
    The cross to pursue, through sword hook or crook,
    Captives, gold, jewels more than one hundred thousand rubies.

    It is the English translation. The German Nazis would have refered to themselves as:
    National Socialist German Workers' Party or in German 'Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei' abbreviated NSDAP.

    Give someone who is fluent in German, and who has been with a German girl for over 10 years, at least a little bit of credit.

    Nazi isn't an acronym. The way that a German speaker would pronounce National, is more like 'Natzyonal' than the English 'Nashonal', also the 'i' ending in German is put to the same sort of use as the 'y' or 'ie' ending in English.

    I amn't 100% certain over this however, but my line of reasoning is consistent with everything I know about the German language....I shall check with the biaatch 2moro......if she even fkn knows...probs have to ask one of her dead NAZI grandparents to get the correct answer.

    I was both right and wrong.

    The term 'Nazi' and the practice of using it to describe a member of the Nationalsozialistiche Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, did originate in Germany, but was originally used by Hitler's opponents as 'Nazi' was a also a Bavarian term for a stupid ignorant peasant.

    You stated that the nazis used the term to describe themselves. It's a binary statement, either right or wrong. I'll give you three guesses as to which it is.

    I'll give you a clue: One of us was right and that was me, obviously.
    YOU LOST. AGAIN.
