Hihi you made me think of those meme pictures.
What the... think I do
What the.... Think I do
What I actually do and so on.
I think the OP in essence wishes to point out that people more often than not do not make the distinction between what people thought they were getting into and what actually transpired, but that message is getting a little skewed or is going sideways because it is clear he has some kind of axe to grind with socialism in general.
That is what I think
The statement "property is theft" is one of anarchism's most famous sayings. Indeed, it is no exaggeration to say that anyone who rejects this statement is not an anarchist. This maxim works in two related ways. Firstly, it recognises the fact that the earth and its resources, the common inheritance of all, have been monopolised by a few. Secondly, it argues that, as a consequence of this, those who own property exploit those who do not. This is because those who do not own have to pay or sell their labour to those who do own in order to get access to the resources they need to live and work (such as workplaces, machinery, land, credit, housing, products under patents, and such
Revolutionary Catalonia (July 21, 1936 – 1939) was the part of Catalonia (a region in northeast Spain) controlled by the anarchist and socialist trade unions, parties, and militias during the Spanish Civil War.
It was the first time I had ever been in a town where the working class was in the saddle. Practically every building of any size had been seized by the workers and was draped with red flags or with the red and black flag of the Anarchists; every wall was scrawled with the hammer and sickle and with the initials of the revolutionary parties; almost every church had been gutted and its images burnt. Churches here and there were being systematically demolished by gangs of workmen. Every shop and café had an inscription saying that it had been collectivised; even the bootblacks had been collectivised and their boxes painted red and black. Waiters and shop-walkers looked you in the face and treated you as an equal. — George Orwell, Homage to Catalonia, ch. I

Well nobody seems to be offering any convincing rebuttals.
Therefore, Fascism is indeed Left Wing.
Always has been, always will be.
And with the majority of "officially accepted" opinions of scholars and such being Left Wing sources, it stands to reason a major "denazification" effort has been necessary for the Left Wing to defend itself and defer their guilt to an opposite side created by their own Hegelian Dialectic.
Just look at who wrote the victory histories of WW2.

Almost six years ago, as a result of the disastrous Citizens United Supreme Court decision, by a 5-to-4 vote, the U.S. Supreme Court essentially said to the wealthiest people in this country: you already own much of the American economy. Now, we are going to give you the opportunity to purchase the U.S. Government, the White House, the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House, Governors’ seats, legislatures, and State judicial branches as well.
Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, No. 08-205, 558 U.S. 310 (2010), is a U.S. constitutional law case dealing with the regulation of campaign spending by organizations. The United States Supreme Court held that the First Amendment prohibited the government from restricting independent political expenditures by a nonprofit corporation. The principles articulated by the Supreme Court in the case have also been extended to for-profit corporations, labor unions and other associations.

His insistence on private property just proves that socialism as in his eyes was not the same as giving up private property. The problem with Hitler is that as soon as the game pieces were set all the Isms in the world did not matter any more.... there was only the Reich, the ethnic cleansing, the war machine. All else was mute.
The ""no private sphere where the individual belongs to himself"" quote is about everything being subservient to his ideal of a Greater Germany, as him being the personification of Justice for the German people. The promised Golden Era brought about through his machinations in his eyes of course. In other words the megalomania of one man and his brainwashed followers. Nothing socialist about it. Yeah maybe when the war was over in his favor........... yeah right.
