“Everyone” does not so assume.
Nazi means National SOCIALIST. The leftist totalitarians try to attach “Nazi” to “Right Wing,” but use it as an opportunity to correct those who don’t know.
Communism and Nazism are two sides of the SOCIALIST coins. They are both totalitarian ideologies, differing only in their “official enemies,” one hating class enemies, and one hating racial enemies.
Both forms of SOCIALISM are at the opposite pole from CONSTITUTIONALISM, which is where most “right wingers” reside.
Then remind the leftist goons (even at the USMA) of their oath to defend the CONSTITUTION.
The racism thing is a red herring. Naziism, or rather I should say fascism, is socialism in one nation, whereas communism is supposed to be for the globe. Nazis are slightly to the right of commies and to the left of the rest of us.
Some useful readings regarding the Left-wing nature of Nazi politics.

HITLER WAS A SOCIALIST
For the best short summary of the similarities of the Reds and the Nazis, see the two-paragraph Hayek quote on my FR profile page. It’s the 3rd one down.
Excellent ...agree BTTT !

Careful, you’re falling into their very effective trap.
They don’t care what it _means_. It’s a loaded pejorative, a label slapped on you to cause others to instantly avoid you. You standing there arguing about the nuanced historical meaning is, as they intend, you wasting time & energy while they’re moving on to hitting the next target.
It’s kinda like you standing there arguing about the difference between FMJ vs BTHP and whether the latter is allowed under the Geneva Convention whilst the is satisfied that whatever he shot you with, you’re suffering a sucking chest wound.
GMTA. You beat me to it.
How are you feeling?
