Leftists are practiced sophists. They are skilled revisionists and strive to always control the narrative. They artfully choose the terminology and labels they employ to frame perceptions about political issues and how people remember past history.
One of the Left’s major revisionist (and largely successful) ploys was to re-categorize the NAZIs as somehow being Right-Wing. This is absurd, but many still view Communism as Left-wing and the National Socialist German Worker Party as “Right-wing”. This is not philosophically or theoretically tenable . The “Right” cannot, by nature, be tyrannical or authoritarian. This is because as we move to the right on the political spectrum the rights and the prominence of the individual become more manifest and important, while at the same time the role and power of the state is diminished. Tyranny stems from the overarching power of the state and this is what the Left is all about.
Before and during World War II nobody considered the NAZIs to be Right-wing. It was obvious to all that Hitler and Stalin were men of the Left. Because the former was so thoroughly vilified, he and the NAZIs could serve, for the Left, as convenient objects of disgust and hate by all decent people. For the Left it was essential that he and the NAZIs be re-categorized as Right-wing, (as silly as this might seem). The Left has always been audacious with their sophistry and reliant on a sycophant press and a willfully ignorant base, neither of which has ever let them down.
Dinesh D’Souza brilliantly makes all this clear in this video:
Below is my version of a more historically accurate political spectrum:
Thoughtful and informed people have known the truth for a long time, Don’t be fooled, the NAZIs were / are Leftists:
