Agreed. Freikorps are extreme authoritarian, but not loyal to the social-democrat-led republic. Boogs have a right-libertarian component and aren't anywhere near as one-sidedly reactionary. If we're going with Weimar analogies then we could also liken the Dems to the social-democrats who used the Freikorps to massacre the Spartacists. We also know the social-democrats rolled over in the face of Nazism and none of the German left was in much of a state to put up resistance, so maybe that's the bit we should be paying attention to.
