Back when I was taking a govt 101 class in college, the professor asserted, as the textbook said, Nazis-facism was far right-wing politics. I challenged that. The professeor explained, as the textbook said, that patriotism was a major tenent of conservatism, the right. Therefore, facism,which was extreme patriotism, was right-wing. I replied does that mean in our Civil War, the Confederacy were leftist liberals, and the North were right-wing facists? Yes, folks, labels can be very misleading. Hitler wasn't promoting patriotism, he was promoting himself and a master race.
