Actually, they're both like that. The difference is that fascists appeal to a particular ethnic/religious group that feels like it's under siege from foreigners and minorities, and it encourages them to be ultra-nationalist and bellicose. Socialists appeal to the poorest of the poor (usually in countries that have lots of poor) and promise them that if they overthrow the economic/political elites, they'll be able to share in the wealth that was denied to them.

They're both collectivist, anti-individualist ideologies that always bring misery and death, not only to their "enemies", but also to the people that they're supposed to benefit.
