Socialist and nationalist like Petain, Mussolini, Marie La Peine perhaps...
I don't know about Petain or Marie La Peine, but Mussolini and Hitler weren't "socialist". They were "anti-socialist", since both of them fought "against" the Soviet Union in WWII. Hitler did so 129 years after Napoléon (1941).
Consequently North Korea that has the best track record in COVID-19 prevention so far will not participate in the 2021 Tokyo Summer Olympic Games, the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and AFC Asian Cup China 2023.
The "Tokyo Summer Olympics" of 2021 is officially called "2020 Summer Olympics" despite the event didn't take place in 2020. I think "2020" in "2020 Summer Olympics" refers to the 2020s Olympiad (a four-year period between two years the Olympic games are generally held) instead of the year 2020. If that's the case, "2018" in "2018 Winter Olympics" refers to the 2018s Olympiad instead of the year 2018.

Especially its common and old neonazi white washing to suggest, that nationalsocialism means national socialists and thus had been left. The first such claims had been as old as the end of WW2. The true reason how the name for a fascist agenda came up in Germany is simply, that they wanted to oppose socialism, especially its internationalism, by offering a nationalist alternative. Which had some anti-capitalist ideas (especially against jews), but rejected 99% of what socialism was about. The red line of national socialism is antisemitism and xenophobia.

That's insulting and I highly suspect trolling there. To be clear I hate nationalism, by socialism I'm referring to philosophical ideals ; I consider that humanism is an essential dimension of it.

Marine Le Pen would not like being called 'socialist', believe me. She is clearly far-right, there's no argument about it. People that vote for her know they give their vote to far-right. The accepted theory is that they usually get scared during the last round, and don't vote. That's the main line of Emmanuel Macron's strategy for 2022 : being the only alternative. Which sort of kills the democratic process.
