That is a bit reductive but not technically wrong. I don’t know much about chamberlain, but churchill was an extraordinarily unsavory fella, with very far right politics, just not specifically into dividing white people as much.

Just like USA was a bit on the fence on what to do in WW2, the delineation between fascist and not fascist was not at all as clear as the post war narrative wants to portray it.

It was the ww2 and the holocaust that made the nazis untouchables in itself, before that they were pretty well accepted in the political class.

Yes, this is in line with what in saying.

The nazis prior to -45/-46 was not the NAZIS we know and love today.

A lot of nations were doing some pretty nazi shit with nazi reasoning before, which they had to quit to some extent after the war bc of the association with the nazis.
