No, they are right-wing extremist. Just like Neo-Nazis in Germany are right-wing extremists.

The Nazis were as socialist as the German Democratic Republic was Democratic.

The Nazis were very much capitalist with some stimulus and social programs.

The Communists who the Nazis despised, rounded-up and killed were left-wing.

You cannot slap a label on people like Hitler or the Nazi Party, and declare them right-wing or left-wing. Hitler used a little of this, and a little of that, and created whatever suited himself. Guess he forgot to read the dictionary, or the label that people slapped on him.

Your great-great grandfather would most likely NOT be a Democrat today. The Southern Democrats of the past were a lot of racist bigots; most of those people left the Democratic Party and moved to the Republican Party. When you get up-to-date on your history lessons, let us know. Hopefully the Southern Strategy history is not too complex and difficult for you to understand.
Yes but the whites of today have never owned any slaves, millions weren't alive for segregation or Jim Crow, none were alive for the Trail of Tears, most weren't alive and living in Nazi Germany, yet whites are constantly made to feel guilty for the actions of SOME of our ancestors. If collective guilt is fair game for whites than I see no reason why Democrats shouldn't be held guilty for past crimes.

Yes because mass murderers are well known for their adherence to the law so simply making guns illegal and harder to get will surely result in them following the law and not buying guns...

In German politics of the 1930's the NSDAP was right wing. The most conservative party in Germany, heavily backed by German industrialists. The Nazis were right-wing in the 1930's german political landscape. It doesn't mean however that you can compare the 1930's german political landscape with the 2012 american political landscape. It's comparing apples and oranges. But he wasn't left-wing for sure, he despised the left and considered them traitors of the German fatherland. The same attitude Kaiser Wilhelm had towards the German left.

What does this have to do with the rise of right wing extremist groups today?

Are Democrats today right wingers?

If you want to talk about "collective guilt" and whites vs. blacks, you should start your own thread. This one is about the rise of right wing extremist groups and terrorism TODAY, 2012.
