He simply translated the article, which said "die Rechten," "the rightwingers."

Nazis have always been described by West German, and since the Wall fell, German media, as "rightwing." And while they were national socialists, they were not leftwing. The notion pushed by many contemporary American conservatives that the Nazis were lefties, is just as wrongheaded. In truth, fascism and Nazism both sought to transcend the left-right dichotomy. They thereby confused a lot of people, and drew adherents from both ends of the political spectrum.
