1 Better Dead Than Red Was First Used By The Nazis
Have you ever wondered who first said better dead than red? Well if you are a fan of the saying, and also have a deep seated hatred of the Nazi’s, you better pick a new slogan to chant.
The anti-communist phrase “better dead than Red” had its origins in NAZI Germany. While it was extensively used during the cold war to show resentment towards the communist ideals, better dead than red was first said by German propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels to motivate the German population to resist the Russian army.
The German version of the phrase coined by Goebbels was “Besser tot als rot”.
So that’s who first said better dead than red. Not a patriotic, capitalist freedom fighting American.
