Hitler was indeed "right wing"

Reader comment on item: The Paterson 'Protocols'

Submitted by Laura (United States), Nov 13, 2002 at 19:20

Yes, Hitler was part of the EXTREME RIGHT. Historical revisionists in recent years have claimed the Nazis were actually leftists, however the National Socialist Party was simply a party label and it was a party that existed before Hitler took it over and turned it into a fascist party. Hitler was opposed to Marxism and demonstrated by his writings. Communists were among those he persecuted. This certainly is NO defense of the extreme left who are just as bad, but why do some on the right feel the need to deny historical fact?

The philosophy of the Nazis and fascism in general is an extreme form of nationalism which in fact is a right wing ideology. The Nazi philosophy was not based on any kind of economic philosophy it was based on racism, with the Germans being the "master race". That is indeed is right wing ideology. Let's not forget that many American capitalists at the time were pro-Hitler.
