Deluded socialist perhaps reflects the base

This from the WSJ:

Some fear that the inability of many European left-wing parties to attract voters is a cause -- not just a symptom -- of a rise among parties on the far right. "When people fear that they are not protected by their governments, they go back to nationalism," said Anthony Wedgwood Benn, a retired U.K. Socialist lawmaker.

Nationalism is socialism, see for instance the Nazis, i.e. the National Socialists.
