I copy the link below, since all sources are in it, easier than grabbing individual passages and their sources.
Hitler used religion, in his pamphlet as much in his speeches, as needed for political reasons... He was in his inner circle very open about the fact that religion is nothing but a hindrance for his end goal... And his narcissistic character by definition was definitely not in favor of poeple worshipping anything or anyone besides him.
"The term "National Socialism" arose out of attempts to create a nationalist redefinition of "socialism", as an alternative to both international socialism and free market capitalism. Nazism rejected the Marxist concept of class struggle, opposed cosmopolitan internationalism, and sought to convince all parts of a new German society to subordinate their personal interests to the "common good" and to accept the priority of political interests in economic organisation."
"Jews and communists became the ideal scapegoats for Germans deeply invested in a German Nationalist ideology."

I am not a Democrat, but I will say that Democrats in general, do not and as far as I can tell, are not accused of being religious, much less accused of trying to insert their religious beliefs into U.S. politics, but one would have to have been living under a rock to have never heard of the "religious right" or the "moral majority" and which political party they are political activists for.
