"protested against the right-wingers"

Isn't Nazism extreme left-wing? NAZI stands for National Socialists Party National Socialist German Worker[s'] Party, yes.

But as a matter of convention, if debatable as to accuracy, German-language media refer to Nazis as extreme RIGHT-wing, and to socialists and communists as LEFT-wing. I see your point, though.

I'm so sick of reading this lie here on FR.

  1. Nazis were on the extreme right in German politics. That included socialist planks, as they were not mutually-exclusive in the German political milieu in the 1930s.
  2. Right wingers can be wrong. It's not a cure-all for tyranny to be on the right.
People are seriously being misled by a lie that is endlessly repeated. It's beyond idiotic, it's some sort of fantasy that being "right" is always "correct." That's plainly wrong.
