Most of the leading Nazis had a Horror of Communism that made even Joseph McCarthy look tame, and in fact the Axis was originally a specifically anti-Communist alliance. As for the Japanese, they were classified officially as "honorary Aryans". Their devotion to fighting for the Emperor was highly regarded by the Nazis and the SS were supposed to study them (at a very simple level). Germany's allies in WW2 included Hungarians, Romanians, Bulgarians, Croats and Bosnians - none of whom were "Aryans". The Nazis took their anti-Semitism seriously, but apart from that many of them tended to ignore their racial theories when it suited them. Perhaps some of them (such as Goering) even knew it was bunk.

The Allied Forces repelled the Nazis from Sicily. The townspeople gave them a big hurray. The bad part was that the Nazis got away to the main land of Italy and this forced the Allied Forces to fight those particular Nazis again. Had the Allied Forces been paying attention to the Nazis they would have tried to prevent the Nazis from escaping. Instead the Brits and the Americans were playing "I am going to beat you to the other end of the island and get those Nazis on my way there." General Patton and Field Marshal Montgomery were reprimanded for their childish behavior and allowing the Nazis to escape or rather withdraw.
