Hitler was not a member of the right

Reader comment on item: Anti-Semitism Evolves

Submitted by Mark (United States), Feb 15, 2005 at 08:54

If you are linking Hitler and the Nazis to a party on the right, i.e. conservative, then this is a mistaken impression. The Nazi Party was a S-O-C-I-A-L-I-S-T party and was called The Nationalist Socialists Workers Party. I have never known a socialist party to be a conservative party on the right! So Hitler and Stalin were both leftists; Hitler's "disagreement" with Russia/Stalin was what kind of socialism should be followed. And lest we forget "Il Duce" - Mussolini; he was a soocialist also. Fascism is another form of socialism and not a conservative philosophy; Mussolini proudly defined fascism as socialism when queried about fascism.
