The two are not neccessarily related. One describes a political ideology and the other relates to differences based on geographical regions. Very early in colonial development the colonies were divided into New England Colonies, Middle Colonies, and Southern Colonies. The regions had different life styles, economic interests, and cultural interests, but after the Revolution the idea of nationalism was embraced by the entire country, or at least enough of each state to ratify the Constitution.

You could say that the philosophy of united society and the elimination of those not seen as conforming to that society could contribute. But it would be a mistake to try to align Nazism with fascism.
