I looked it up on Wikipedia and you're correct, my apologies. Marvel has been associating them pretty heavily with Nazis for decades, though, longer than lots of comic book readers have been alive, and it doesn't seem fair to jettison that to save face over editorial decisions.

I don't know if I'd call it jettisoning, though. It seems to me that Spencer is trying to set up Nazi Hydra and Ancient Cult Hydra as seperate entities, while maintaining both as being evil. So you've got the Red Skulls racist, fascist assholes vs. Hydra Steve's non-racist but still fascist assholes. Hydra Steve hasn't been shown to be a racist or a bigot, it's just that where Real Steve whould call out bigots and righteously punch them, Hydra Steve will instead manipulate them to his own ends then stab them in the back.

Amen.

Also, "They're not Nazis, they're fascists!" is....not REALLY BETTER.

It depended on the faction though, since there have been multiple Hydra groups with different leaders with different goals.

That being said, the best known version of Hydra right now is the one people saw in the films, which is the one where they were a Nazi science division.
