    The Nazi's were/are Nazi's and do not represent any major political party in the United States of America.

    They are there very own insecure, self pre occupied and sociopathic sect. Nazism is combination of cruelty and blind obedience to authority.

    I don't think you can invalidate the point by bringing up the profit motive. The bottom line is that all people everywhere who are not suicidal or crazy want and need profit to survive. The only reason "profit motive" is considered unique to capitalism is because it seems to be the only system that recognizes this basic need. But as much as non-capitalists despise profit, they're driven to it by an innate desire to produce something. You cannot survive by living on an equal system of bartering or rationing. The Soviet bureaucrat-turned-businessman is driven to succeed, and profit equals success. The backdoor corruption of many communist states is enough evidence to indicate some elite people somewhere are profiting from the system. And the elite, needless to say, is almost always politically oriented.

    The Nazi's being labeled as purely right wing, has been an act of historical revisionism for a long time.
    Lately, people have been putting in the effort to correct those errors.
    Some take it to the point, of using it as a method to smear liberals, just as the Nazi's have been used to smear Conservatives.

    this whole effort to "correct those errors" is simply modern right wing revisionism which has the specific goal of attempting to wipe the dog waste off the bottom of their shoe. People look at some extreme elements of right wing American conservatism and some indeed see fascism over the next hill if we keep going in that direction. And that upsets the American right and they want to take away that weapon from their critics.

    That is all this is about.

    Not at all.
    But case in point here, you're strictly attached to a 1 dimensional left/right spectrum, when it has been plainly pointed out that people/parties/nations can hold views from different ideologies.

    The Nazi's heavily regulated the market, there for they are liberals.
    Whew that was easy.
