    Nazism and fascism are the same thing they both tie in with socialism and communism which are both far left and all 4 of them are controlled by a dictatorship they believe in denying people of rights and limiting freedom while also leaving citizens defenseless, nazism/fascism is far left.

      Good answer. Nazi's have always been considered leftists. Only a few modern day leftists has tried to say they weren't leftists.

    Nazism and Fascism are pretty much the same thing. They HATE democracy, egalitarianism, labour unions, socialists and communists. Nazis/Fascists KILL every leftist they can catch.

    Leftism isn't about the size of the government. It's about reducing the privileges of the rich

      If you want to compare by features, then all 3 - Nazism, Communism and Socialism had: limitations on speech, disarmed their populations, cradle to grave benefits, government control of the economy (and more). Does it ring a bell for you? That's exactly in line with today's left!

    Just going by what nazis say. They say they are right wing.

    I figured the Germans would know.

    As to fascism, I figure Mussolini’s grand daughter would know. She like her grandfather are fascist.

      SO you believe that Kim Jong's "Democratic Republic of North Korea" is "Democratic" huh? Gullible much? The Nazi's were leftists. Nobody is able to deny that.

    You really need to ask this?

    Well first of all, the conservatives will be on this question like flies on shlt. They have been working their ases off the past few years trying to convince themselves and everyone else that Democrats are the racist fascist ones.

    Theyre logic seems to be centered around the idiotic idea that intolerance of oppression and injustice is fascist.

    Hows that for conservative logic?

    They insist that the KKK is some how a liberal organization promoted by Democrats and who somehow voted for Barak Obama.

    As to the Nazis of WWII their ideology can best be described as xenophobic, extremely racist, nationalistic and very very Right-wing. They sought complete racial purity, promoted capitalism and the State over socialism and the well being of the individual. Completely intolerant of any critism of their charismatic leader who was elevated to god-like status who could do no wrong.

    They preached fear of immigrants and Socialist. Homosexuals were murders by the tho

      "Professor", you are taking about re-writing history? Quite a projection there! Try looking at the features of the American left's slavery and compare to Nazi Germany. Hope that will ring the bell.

    They are right wing according to historians and political scientists. Contards who have been trying to create a new revisionism will say otherwise. As you can see from some of the other answers.

    right wing, Fascism is a corruption of Capitalism, it is about reducing liberty for some and elevating it for others to give a benefit to a select few in society, Fascism is the polar opposite of Socialism on the political ideological scale which you can see here https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/1lNUnVzLVUiTfMb...

      Fascism is so "polar opposite" to Socialism, that it has EVERYTHING IN COMMON with it! That's what happens when leftists get to be in charge of our educational institutions.

    Both left. A party that wants to seize assets, support infanticide, and government dependence/slavery is both of those.

    Right wing, as they are the opposite of communists, which are left wing.

    This is what is taught in most informed schools, and they were strongly opposed to communists as well (Hitler even sent them into concentration camps).

      Hailstormer, how is Fascism/Nazism the opposite of communism? All 3 (Nazism, Communism, Socialism) had: limitations on speech, disarmed their populations, cradle to grave benefits, government control of the economy (and more). All 3 ideologies are the same grand-ideology with different variations.

    Right wing, but it doesn't really matter. The thing is that when you take either the left or the right to extremes (i.e. totalitarianism) they look uncannily the same. Some people call this the "horseshoe effect".

    The confusion comes from the word "Nazi" itself (a contraction of National Socialist Party), but Nazis were no more socialists as North Koreans are democrats (their country is called The Democratic People's Republic of Korea - but they are hardly democratic).

    The bottom line is that dictators are rarely honest about their intentions (or the labels they use in their propaganda).

      Yes, language use changes over time but the word "Nazi" has become, at least for some people, the exact opposite of its traditional and well accepted meaning.  Orwell predicted this.
