Nazis Who Hate Nazis

Anyone who has paid attention to the formerly fringe - now so hip and cool and sometimes I can't even hatelink this shit - explicitly racist conservatives knows that they have a weird relationship to Nazis. On one hand they sort of know that Nazis represent something "bad" and maybe they know we fought against them in WWII, and that fight wasn't really a noble fight against racist genocide, just a noble fight, as wars goes, against imperial expansion and fascist tyranny generally. So they're pretty quick to throw out NaziHitler as an epithet to anything/anybody they don't like even when it's really fucking confused.

On the other hand, they really really admire the racism and the white supremacy, so sometimes they're pretty down with the whole Nazi thing. None of it makes any sense.
