You are off topic squared.

By definition, these movements are found on the right-wing.
Che Guevara was demonstrably sexist, homophobic and his trademark slogan "patria o muerte" certainly hints towards ethnic chauvinism, although I've not looked into that. Karl Marx was certainly racist. He was concerned, to say the least, about his daughter marrying a Haitian who might or might not have had a tiny bit of African blood in him.

What about hatred of the police, priests, soldiers, the rich, aristocrats, the petite and the regular bourgeoisie? All of these people were to Gulag by the millions by leftists.

That is some cognitive bias right there, to omit leftist bigotry altogether and to associate politically unaffiliated bigotry exclusively with the right.

Anyway, my actual claim holds with the left as well. Lenin, Trotzky, Stalin and Mao were skillful organizers and orchestrators of organized political violence. A "climate of hatred" against the Rich or the Jews or certain Races is not sufficient to cause mass violence. Otherwise there would be pogroms on a daily basis.
