Hitler was a National Socialist, a unique name he gave to his own German strain of Italian Fascism.
Contrary to the name, the goals of Nazism were quite different from the goals of the older revolutionary socialism, or even social democracy. Nazism sought to combine the pro-working class rhetoric of the socialist movement with the ultra-nationalism, and traditionalist practice of older regimes. Therefore, it was primarily a statist and extremely authoritarian idelogy.
Socialism, OTOH, seeks to put control of economics into the hands of the organized working class, and also seeks the eventual withering away of the state as a centralized decision making body. Socialism also considers any sort of racial, religious, or whatever discrimination, to be completely anathema to the cause. A racist can never truly claim socialism.

Last time I looked the Nazi Party and the Alt Right they have a lot in common and they toss around Hitlers' name like he is their hero.. The Convention in DC, after the election, showed the world, if anybody still had any doubts, that the Alt right is full of Nazi sympathizers. Bannon, is really a major figure in the Alt right and he definitely is not a liberal.
Of late Bannon has gone after Kushner who is Trump's Jewish son in law. Bannon has been using words that signal to his Alt right supporters that he is attacking Kushner for his religious beliefs just as much as for his political views. Don't tell me that Nazis' were socialist Liberals. They are definitely way to the far right just as much as the Alt right is to the far right.
