But we educated conservatives know that the NAZI was a liberal/left part, not a conservative/right party.
Hated free enterprise
Cradle-to-grave entitlements from the state
Pro gun control
Pro genetic engineering
Spying on the citizenry
Read Jonah Goldberg’s Liberal Fascists for a detailed study of why the current left wing of the DNC is very closely aligned with the ideology of the NAZIs.
Maligning conservatives with the “NAZI” ad hominem attack was successful even though it was little more than “projection” from the left.

It went far beyond that. A good chunk of the American Left were supporters of Hitler in the run up to our entry into WWII. After all, they were taking their lead from Stalin and the Communists in the Soviet Union, who were allied with Hitler from pre-war, thru the dismemberment of Poland, until the Germans invaded the USSR in 1941. Then that subset of out Left quickly changed their tune.
Post-WWII, to hide this reality, they started the big lie that the Nazis were somhow “right wing.”
