Far-right politics

political alignment on the extreme end of right-wing politics

Far-right politics are politics further right on the political spectrum than the usual political right.[1] The term is often used to mean Nazism,[2] neo-Nazism, fascism and other organizations that have reactionary views.

Saying that superior people should have greater rights than inferior people is often associated with the far-right.[3] The far-right have historically favored a society that believes in superior minority over inferior masses.[3]

Some aspects of fascist ideas have been identified with right-wing political parties. The fascist idea that superior people should have more power in society has led to genocide.

In the United States, the term hard right has been used to describe some groups, such as the Tea Party and Patriot movements.[4]
