What you just described is a perfect example of cognative dissonance. We judge others on their actions but ourselves on the intent of our actions. Old Nazi probably thought “well I had legitimate other reasons to support the Nazi Party, but these neo-nazis are just full of hate,” completely ignorant of their own obvious internalized hatred

I only remember it because it came up in conversation a week ago and it's still on my mind.

Exactly. It's pretty brazen coming from a guy that was very very likely (but not proven to be) involved in war crimes.

Also the original Nazis before taking power were exactly that -- hooligans, bullies and the likes.

I don't think he disliked them because they were full of hate, he believed the things they believe, so I doubt he would see them as unnecessary hateful. It was probably because he thought they were just using his beliefs just to cause violence, behaving like huligans instead of being like proper Aryan members of society and fighting for Aryan supremacy like civilized Aryan people. Long story short I don't think hate was the reason he hated them.
