What's in a name, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. I have no problem with people calling the execrable Neo-Nazis right wing or even extreme right wing, but we have to remember that what we do now has no effect on history. Here's the story
from Berlin. Let's look at what the two different groups use as a name. The Neo-Nazis are the National Democratic
Party (NPD), the old Nazis were the National Socialist and German Workers' Party. Notice the difference? What's the current center right party called in Germany? That's the party of the Chancellor Angela Merkel. It's called the Christian Democratic
Union. Ah, it's all falling into place.
Unless you believe the Nazis were kidding when they named themselves in the 1920s, only an idiot could call them right wing.
What about the Neo-Nazis here in America? What party or part of the political spectrum do they inhabit? Hmm. This could take a while. More later, I promise.
