>I know that Wagner was a Nazi sympathizer

No.  That would be anachronistic.  It is more accurate to say that Nazis
(or many of them) were Wagnerian.

I have heard it said that Karl Marx was fond of Shakespeare.  Surely,
that doesn't make Shakespeare a Marxist.

Carol Barton's revelation

'I know that Wagner was a Nazi sympathizer'

almost made that slog through her intimate journals worthwhile. Of
course, we presentists have had our eye on him for some time. The
jackboots and the saluting initially roused our suspicions, but it was
the muttering about invading Poland that finally gave him away.
