    They had someone to blame. Hilter was a reminder of Manson both were made out to be by their friends a mastermind and all they really were thought of were patsies.

    Hitler's companions proved very well that they lacked the moral and mental capabilities to distinguish right from wrong. You cannot blame corruption on one man alone; every person who fought for him, who believed in him, who didn't resist if they were able, perpetrated the evil.

    Why do the sane non Qist members of the GOP continue to stand with Trump? Because their constituents have gone mad and support Trump. Those who don't get with that program are voted out. And the cycle of madness continues

    Any country ruled by a ruthless dictator w/ absolute power who uses execution freely will have subordinates fearful to disagree. It was their job to stay in line and don't speak unless spoken to or else. The graveyards are full of indispensable people.

    Those that Followed and Supported Hitler in Germany was all about Power and Money many top Nazis made Millions out of WW2 and Corporate USA made Billions from Funding the Nazis up to 1945

    Remember the enabling act allowed Hitler to remove citizenship from Jews then he passed another Law No Non citizen can own Property In Germany Giving top Nazis permission to Loot all Jewish Homes and take everything they wanted and they did

    the Richest Being Prescott Bush/Standard Oil GM ITT Ford Alcoa Cocoa Cola Birds Eye  IBM helped with the Holocaust at Auschwitz

    Yes we Know many British funded Hitler but they all stopped in 1939 But the USA with Permission of FDR

    Up to about August 1945 when 10,000 were helped to escape to South America Via the Rat Lines and the Vatican

    Hitler was funded By the Rockefeller's in the Belief Hitler would Go to war with the Communists he took the Money and Honored the Agreementthe USA never did anything to stop him whilst the UK was Trying AppeasementHitler took all this as approval and of he wentAmerica with the collusion of the vice-chairman of the U.S. War Production Board in partnership with Göring's cousin in Philadelphia when American forces were desperately short of everything and such arrangements were known about in Washington and either sanctioned or deliberately ignored?For the government did sanction dubious transactions—both before and after Pearl Harbor. A presidential edict, issued six days after December 7, 1941, actually set up the legislation whereby licensing arrangements for trading with the enemy could officially be granted.Often during the years after Pearl Harbor the government permitted such trading. For example, ITT was allowed to continue its relations with the Axis and Japan until 1945, even though that conglomerate was regarded as an official instrument of United States Intelligence.No attempt was made to prevent Ford from retaining its interests for the Germans in Occupied France, nor were the Chase Bank or the Morgan Bank expressly forbidden to keep open their branches in Occupied Paris. It is indicated that the Reichsbank and Nazi Ministry of Economics made promises to certain U.S. corporate leaders that their properties would not be injured after the Führer was victorious.Thus, the bosses of the multinationals as we know them today had a six-spot on every side of the dice cube. Whichever side won the war, the powers that really ran nations would not be adversely affected.And it is important to consider the size of American investments in Nazi Germany at the time of Pearl Harbor. These amounted to an estimated total of $475 million. Standard Oil of New Jersey had $120 million invested there; General Motors had $35 million; ITT had $30 million; and Ford had $17.5 million. Though it would have been more patriotic to have allowed Nazi Germany to confiscate these companies for the duration—to nationalize them or to absorb them into Hermann Göring's industrial empire—it was clearly more practical to insure them protection from seizure by allowing them to remain in special holding companies, the money accumulating until war's end. It is interesting that whereas there is no evidence of any serious attempt by Roosevelt to impeach the guilty in the United States,reason FDR was afraid of Upsetting Corporate USA whose Cooperation was desperately needed to win the War in the Pacific
