The latter two definitions are relevant to Der Movement.
A far-right-winger, white supremacist, neo-Nazi etc.
He was a nice guy till he got involved with some Nutzis in Idaho.
Name inside the US white nationalist movement given to activists who praise Hitler, wear German Nazi uniforms and carry swastika flags to demonstrations. Sometimes known as “Hollywood Nazis” for their media-friendly image.
“That guy is such a Nutzi; what self-respecting white separatist dresses like it’s 1933?”
There are three ways the word “Nutzi” is used, with increasing generality:
1. An extreme, Type I, Hitler-worshipping neo-Nazi type, typically, but not exclusively, some sort of Nordicist-fetishist. Example: “William Pierce was a Nutzi.”
2. Any extreme, radical activist on the Far Right, of whatever type. Example: “Ted Sallis is a Nutzi.”
3. Any person on the Far Right, regardless of “extremism” and ideology. Example: “Zman is a Nutzi.”
Definition one is the most specific and the most serious, and is meant to be pejorative.
Definition two is meant to be serious by the System and is either semi-serious among activists – a “this thing of ours” joking attitude – or it is meant to be a pejorative used by the mainstreaming milksops against the more extreme vanguardist types.
Definition three is used by the System and is used by activists only to mock the System (although, for example, some of Zman’s commentators may well be Nutzis, although Zman himself is not, so we can argue how to properly define his website).
I believe definitions one and two are equally legitimate, in their given contexts, but definition three is just System hysteria (used by activists to ridicule that hysteria).
