The Nazi party was the "National Socialist German Workers' Party" or NSDAP, a center-left socialist party who silenced their political opponents through violence and intimidation. The fact that the modern left justifies silencing their political opponents through violence and intimidation by calling them Nazis is both amusing and scary.

When confronted with the fact that Nazis were socialists, modern socialists typically will say that the Nazis only called themselves socialists, they weren't really socialists, (like the Soviet communists, they also called themselves socialists, but that wasn't real socialism either) to which I say, hmm, so THIS TIME it's going to be REAL socialism, right? Scouts' honor? Well pardon my skepticism...
