Indeed they did.
Can anyone offer a single consequential difference between Fascism/Nazism and Communism/Socialism/Marxism?
Specifically, please explain the claim that Nazis are right wing, but Communists are left wing. If you really want to assist me, tell me how Antifa can possibly be anti-Fascist.
Seems to me those various labels just cover minor squabbles among the Totalitarianists. Cosmetic distinctions.
