Why when progressives are 100 to 1 more fascist than conservatives do they constantly call republicans "Nazis"?

Nazis, fascists, and communists were all socialist. That is a fact. Yet the Soviets were often more tyrannical and murderous than the other socialists (Germany, Italy, Spain, Red China, etc.) that they were enemies with and that they branded "fascist". In a historical sense, fascism is only the far... show more Nazis, fascists, and communists were all socialist. That is a fact. Yet the Soviets were often more tyrannical and murderous than the other socialists (Germany, Italy, Spain, Red China, etc.) that they were enemies with and that they branded "fascist". In a historical sense, fascism is only the far right of the socialist spectrum not the political one. In practice they were mixed-economy socialists identical to the views that most progressives (not conservatives) desire. It is ignorant and even stupid to deny this fact. While communists often branded any they opposed as "fascists" in practice there was typically little difference.

Are they this historically illiterate or are they so ignorant as to believe that fascism = capitalism (its actual opposite)?

Is this revision being taught at schools and university levels by progressive elitists (modern fascists) ?
Update: @AndyF - I appreciate your candor in admitting the twine economic similarities between Nazism/fascism and "modern" progressivism. While for branding tactics, progressives often use the terms interchangeably, Nazis and fascists were as distinct political form as progressives and communists.

While for branding tactics, progressives often use the terms interchangeably, Nazis and fascists were as distinct political form as progressives and communists. Actually, in both a historic and factual sense, fascists and progressives are FAR closer in both ideology and economic theory, though you may not yet be able to admit this. The small lip service modern fascism (progressivism) pays to gender, racial, sexual preference, etc, "equality" is simply a weak window dressing and smokescreen.

The fact that you "see" conservatives as racist/sexist/homophobes is simply the new okay-to-hate-and-vilify charge you can use to make conservatives your "rats" to Hitler's "Jews". There is no teeth to the delusion in either case. You really need to go back to see that capitalism (10 to 1) over "communism&q

Update 3: Your view that black/brownshirts were "anti-socialist" shows extreme ignorance or possibly strong false-history indoctrination. BOTH fascists and Nazi (in fact that very name means socialist labor party) WERE mixed-economy socialists.

BOTH fascists and Nazi (in fact that very name means socialist labor party) WERE mixed-economy socialists. They may have "hated" other socialists (like Russia) but that is meaningless rhetoric when use to "prove" they were not socialists. This is a matter of documented record. By attempt to revise history to suit the socialist agenda your masters again simply show similarity to the "progressives" of the past.
