Far right, or Extreme right

The phrases far right, or extreme right, depict the broad range of political groups and philosophies generally taken to be further to the right of the mainstream center-right on the traditional left-right spectrum. Far right politics usually entails support for social dissimilarity and social hierarchy, elements of social conservatism and resistance to most forms of liberalism and socialism. 

Both terms are also employed to illustrate Nazi and fascist movements, and other groups who hold extreme nationalist, chauvinist, xenophobic, racist, religious fundamentalist or reactionary views. The most extreme right-wing movements have followed repression and genocide against groups of people on the basis of their supposed inferiority.
