@Nisse_Hult No the nazi's were both nationalists and socialists, the two are not mutually exclusive.
You deny the dictionary definition of nationalism and replace it with your own preferred definition?
As you did with "right-wing" "leftist" "nazi" and every other word you'd used to argue.
You're building straw-men and keep insisting that other people acknowledge that you know their thoughts and opinions better then them self, all the while showing a complete ignorance of politics, history and the definition of words.
Fascism was also socialistic, so the one thing you are correct about, is that fascism and Hitler's national socialism were pretty much the same.
They were also both left leaning politically speaking, so people's branding of Nazis as "right-wingers" does nothing but show their complete ignorance on either the definitions of political left/right, the actual politics of national socialism or both.
Nice of you to go straight to Godwin's law by the way, normally people wait until a few comments in when they realize they are wrong, but don't want to loose the argument.
You just go straight of the bat, attacking people's character rather then their argument, a character you made up.
