The Jews were not exterminated because of race, but because they were capitalists. They owned the banks, diamond and gold production as well as all of the manufacturing plants in Germany.

Hitler was a Marxist who was eliminating capitalism who happened to be Jewish. This purge was happening in Russia and Italy at the same time, it is just the Jews happened to be the ultimate capitalist and needed eliminating.

Now it is happening here with virtual extermination of capitalism and free market ideas.

Not true, Bray. At the most, rich Jews were 5% of European Jewry. Ever see the movie Fiddler on the Roof? Poor, rural, Eastern European Jews were the rule in many millions. It was those that mostly went to the ovens. The real smart, rich ( and lucky) ones bought their way to freedom in the West or the US or even Palestine.

Rounding up and exterminating the rural Jews became a full time job for many thousands of Gestapo that, if used in divisions and battalions against the Soviet hordes, might have had won Germany the war. Much of the Western Allied military leaders, from Eisenhower on down, were skeptical of the Nazi’s using troops and resources to kill Jews instead of fighting as it did not make military sense to them. The fact that Hitler did, even while losing, just shows his absolute hatred. He really did hate them.

Hitler and the ruling Nazis only cared that the Jews were easy scapegoats because millions of Germans believed all the conspiracy theories, etc., dating back and across Europe to the Protocols and other anti-Jewish campaigns.

If Hitler had been saddled with a nation of English shopkeepers he’d have had them propagandized and smeared drinking Irish blood at sunset or whatever idiocy it took to vilify them.

I agree that Hitler was a socialist but he did it without the promise of a “workers paradise” and all the other gibberish.

Hitler also differed in that he traded on nationalism and racial purity in a way the 20th century communists deplored. Nobody more fully threatened the pathological comintern concept than the pathological nationalist, who actually made the Marxists not only “look good” but an “ally” too.

Ironically, it was the communists who drank and sustained themselves on Hitler’s blood.
