Liberals want to deny the parallels between modern day Democratic Socialism and Germany's National Socialism, because the latter obviously prejudices the former. So they emphasize Hitler's obscene vision of annihilation of all enemies of the Aryan Volk as the primary focus of Nazism and either ignore the economic parallels which argue in favor of defining Nazism as Socialistic or they focus on one or two economic characteristics where Nazism differs from Socialism as being key discriminators rendering the two philosophies separate and distinct.

Similarly, liberals assert Venezuela's recent economic failure is NOT due to Socialistic governance, but rather due to the country's dependency on oil which has been selling at prices far lower than the country needs to support itself. As with Nazism, the assertion is a distraction from the root cause of Venezuela's failure which is that the state controlled economic engine has run out of other people's money.

The only acceptable model of Socialism liberals acknowledge are the successful ones practiced in Europe, excluding, of course, the failed Grecian and failing Spanish models. Ironically, they fail to take notice of the ecomonic signs clearly indicating they are also facing challenges similar to Venezuela and that they are also running out of other people's money.
