Over 70 years on, the word "Nazi" is still used as a pejorative, underlining is key role as an enemy image in the just war narrative

Nazi is the anglicized diminutive of the German word Nationalsozialist (Eng: National Socialist), which in turn is an abbreviation of Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (Eng: National Socialist German Workers’ Party) with the acronym NSDAP (Eng: Nazi Party). It was coined as an Enemy Image propaganda epithet (see below) and has remained in use by the war's victors ever since.

The NSDAP was the political party which brought Adolf Hitler to power in Germany in 1933. The government lasted until 1945.

Enemy image

In accordance with the "Good War" official narrative of WWII, it is commonly used, in simplistic knee-jerk fashion, as an epithet epitomising the worst kind of reactionary fascism.

Business with Nazi Germany

The father of the billionaires Charles G. and David H. Koch helped construct a major oil refinery in Nazi Germany that was personally approved by Adolf Hitler, according to a new history of the Kochs and other wealthy families.[1] This is one of many examples of The Money Power enabling both sides in major confronations and disputes.

Prescott Bush also did a lot of business with Nazi Germany.[2]
