Yes, Hitler was an environmentalist

Nazis may have hated a lot of people, but apparently they loved the environment. On Friday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn Beck highlighted Stu Burguiere’s report about the environmental movement within Nazi Germany.

Hitler’s two most important goals were the destruction of the Jews and the conquest of more space in the East. But he was also concerned about Germany’s limited resources of food and raw materials, Stu explained.

The environmentalists of the day praised the Nazis for enforcing their beliefs. “The similarities to modern environmentalism are unmistakable,” Stu said. For example, one Nazi project was a sustainable forestry program with the motto “eternal forest and eternal nation.” Organic food was even tied to “social justice issues” in Nazi propaganda.
