The regressive leftists are. They have taken dated concepts they claim to stand against and relabel it progressive.

Once you get passed the Hollywood nazi or the skinhead trope that the media pushes you will find that most national socialists are left leaning.

Most of the national socialists in my circle of friends are vegan, well kept and straight edge. They just aren't liberal, they recognise that you need strength to protect the things you care about. It is no good being liberal and weak with good intentions or people with take advantage of your charity, you also cannot be too conservative and strong otherwise you will not grow and end up preserving the very thing holding you back. You must be nationalistic in vigor to protect the things you hold dear and socialistic in the way you help and protect the people around you.

I prefer to call them Neo-Marxist Pseudo-Communists personally.

Both have a problem with freedom of speech so both have a problem with me.

National socialism is a right-leaning authoritarian ideology. We do however take ideas from the left such as socialism but our form of socialism is very different from that of the lefts.

If a national socialist were to drift over to the left he'd be closer to a communist which would be very contradictory as National socialism was created to oppose communist as well as capitalist ideas.

Not all left ate neo nazi but all neo nazi are ultra left. People claim alt right are Nazi because many are in fact anti semetic or white supremesist but those are not the defining features of Nazi or "national socialism".

Being completely fair there isn't just one political spectrum that only goes in two directions. One being right and one being left. It's a tree structure of many extreams that do not all look the same.

so ultimately it's not a fair question but if you look at the liniage of neo Nazi ism. It did not come from the far right. It actually came from the extreme left.

Liberals pin the "national" in "national socialism" on the right because they are typically "nationalists. However true nationalism means we have our country and you have yours and let's keep it that way. Hitler's "nationalism" was more... we have our country and its better than yours so I will conquer yours.

This is a simplification but one is true nationalism and the other is actually globalism because it's end goal is to conquer the world

Best example of there being a major difference is the fact that conservative Americans are nationalists but so is the Islamic state. One is about boarder control and the other is about extending its boarders to encompass the planet.

The "socialism" half is more self explanitory and is also a generally leftist ideal.

So in short. The most litteral answer would be to say that national socialism is its own extreme that isn't really right or left as there are many extremes that differ in many ways.

But the answer that gets to the core sentiment of your question is yes neo naziism is leftist mind set who's end game is total destruction or enslavement of all aponanents which will inevitably backfire and bring totalitarian enslavement of all people led by a dictatorship.
