re: #198 Bookworm
Please look up the literature on the BNP. It's completely uncontroversial to call them a "far right" party. They regard themselves as right wing -- DEFINITELY not left wing.
And the word "Socialist" in "National Socialist" does not indicate a left-wing orientation, Marxist, socialist, or any other way. The Nazis were a right wing group in German politics; they started as a right wing group and coopted other German right wing parties, and all their alliances were with right wing parties. All of the serious historical works on Nazi Germany make this exceedingly clear.
There's a kind of revisionism going around these days that insists the Nazis and other far right wing organizations are actually left wing groups -- it's simply wrong.

The Nazis were absolutely an extreme right wing party. They started as a right wing party, they coopted other right wing parties to gain national power in Germany, they made alliances with right wing parties, and their enemies were all on the left wing.
The Nazis were right wing.
National "Socialism" does not correspond to Marxist socialism.
There are almost no reputable historians who classify the Nazis as left wing; this is pure historical revisionism, and it's false.

re: #10 elBarto
Why are neo nazis considered right wing?
They call themselves right wing. They have extreme right wing views. They are right wing extremists.

re: #86 RogueOne
Are you of the belief that 70% of the public is "right wing"?
You're seriously going to deny that the anti-mosque silliness is a right wing issue?
Sure, it's crossed lines to some extent, but if you're actually going to try to say it's just as much left wing as right wing, I'm going to laugh.
