So, I read this story and had to check it out. The Author is correct. I checked the big "reputable" dictionaries and found that it is true. Google did change the definition when searched in google. You tell me, the Google "definition" seems to really stand out in contrast.
dailycaller.com...



www.merriam-webster.com...



1. a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition


2. a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control




www.dictionary.com...



1. a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.



en.oxforddictionaries.com...



An authoritarian and nationalistic system of government and social organization. (in general use) extreme authoritarian, oppressive, or intolerant views or practices.


dictionary.cambridge.org...



a political system based on a very powerful leader, state control of social and economic life, and extreme pride in country and race, with no expression of political disagreement allowed


dailycaller.com...




This definition reflects the fact that Nazis were, in fact, both fascists and of the political left. They were the “National Socialist German Workers Party,” which favored a heavy-handed government in business and the personal lives of its citizens.

The authoritarian government of Nazi Germany not only oppressed opposing political views and used violence to enforce it, they supported a powerful central government which heaped social benefits on its citizens. The second part of Nazism is the “socialist” part, which is very similar to what the modern American political left advocates. For all their bluster to the contrary, Hitler was a man of the extreme left, and so was fellow fascist and Axis Powers member Benito Mussolini.

But if you type the word into Google, the definition they provide is quite different.




Google:

noun

Hitler was neither far left or far right. He had aspects of both. The sooner people stop classifying people as one thing, the sooner we get over this insane time we're all stuck living in.

Are conservatives the political right? You know exactly what is being insinuated.




The world’s largest search engine pins fascism on the political right, not the left.

Google defines fascism as, “an authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization.” (emphasis added)


The secondary definition is, “(in general use) extreme right-wing, authoritarian, or intolerant views or practice.”

That’s a striking difference from how the word has been defined for decades.

So the conservatives are far right-wing? Fascism has always been considered a right-wing ideology. Nothing changed.

I am not surprised that Google would change a definition. It is obvious to the disinterested observer that the US has many symptoms of fascism, for quite a few years now. Google has been instructed to control the narrative, and changing definitions is a good way to control the narrative.

What make's Hitler such a great leader was not his leadership qualities. What made Hitler so great was the German people's desire to follow a leader with Hitler's characteristics.

What "gun control" are referring to? I thought we had very little in this country.

No. Everywhere outside the US right wing means "protectionism/nationalism" and always did. You know "my country first" that is rightwing.

The Nazis have always been considered 'far right.' It's only the last year or so when an American movement has started to push them across to the 'left.' I've been watching it happen with interest.


I see it as elements on the right seeking to shrug off all negative associations. No more neo-Nazis, right? They'd be reinvented as 'far left.' Taken to its extremes, the ideal would be to have every negative, unwanted political group tied to the Left and none at all left for the Right. It's a process that's seen many on the right reject any allegations of racism on their side whilst consistently rebranding it as a Leftist habit. Neat as f*** and clever too!

Nazi's were socialist, Stalin a communist, Mao a communist?

The problem with the liberal agenda is that it refuses to accept negative facts and it creates non-sensical definitions of words that are not based in history nor fact.

On the extreme right wing is anarchy, on the extreme left wing is fascism. Simply the facts. Just because a historical figure is not to your liking, does not mean you should redefine that person. For instance, so many conservatives who want the death penalty, the use of extreme military actions, the denial of civil rights, etc. are also so-called "Christians". They forget what Christ taught at every turn.

This is dumb.

This is exactly the same to the right redefining "communist" to mean Obama.

Absurd.

"Not to my liking"? Huh? Historians have always considered Fascism a right-wing ideology, and as someone else mentioned, it isn't an American political party.
BTW Mussolini himself said that Fascism tends to the right. Right out of horse's mouth.
Stop muddling up the issue.
BTW just because Nazis had the word socialism in it doesn't mean they were. Please study your history.

History: Hitler promised employment for all via infrastructure creation, not market forces, just like that well known conservative Republican FDR; He blamed the ruination of Germany on the Jews obviously, but also on the RICH, not the poor or the middle class (is this starting to sink in yet?); he started and provided day-long day care and education which had state-established curriculum (which side supports state provided day care?); oh, and don't forget the nationalized healthcare commonly referred to as Hitlercare; he was super big on gun control; he was pro-choice.

So I know my history. Just because the left has always been happy to call the armed services and law enforcement, and anyone who disagrees with them as Nazi's does not mean that they were right wing. Nationalist Socialist Workers Party.

Leftists have been busy redefining words.




Controlling, authoritarian now means liberal.

Communism now means more freedom.

Socialism now means almost as much freedom as communism.

Capitalism is now synonymous with racist, xenophobia, sexism.

Saying Trump in a sentence is now hate speech.

Hate speech is now anything the leftists disagree with.

Censorship is good.

Free speech must include breaking windows and harming people.
