  • “[..]to Ferdinand Porsche, who developed the world’s first hybrid car, as well as the Volkswagen Beetle.”
    one of your picture facts say different.

  • Hitler was a vegetarian. There were at least two dozen or more attempts on Hitlers life. The original title of “Mein Kampf ” was “My Four Year Struggle Against Lies, Stupidity And Cowardice”. It was shortened to “Mein Kampf” by cellmate Rudolf Hess.

    • He wasnt a vegetarian in the modern sense of the word as many of his favorite treats involved pork and beef. ‘Vegetarian’ was a fairly new concept in america and europe at that time so it was used fairly liberally, usually just to imply a largly plant based diet, but not always an exclusive one.

        • People of black brown yellow and any other ethnic groups hate and I don’t use the word lightly hate the white race I don’t care either way who hates who but I’m sick of people calling white racist when it helps what ever party get what they want and blacks browns being called minority’s that’s a bunch of BS whites are I watched a program and all there was. Was black women that had baby’s and they brought 10 different men on and not one of th was the father so they brought on an other 10 men on 1 out of 20 guys that she sleep with was the father and on this show they had 7 different women on and the same thing out of 7 black women they brought on close to130 men that’s sick and only that one black lady could find the man of her child. And the brown don’t believe in abortion or birth control and they don’t like white either so I think people need to get off the racist train and worrie about the real enemy Isis and the crazys that are at are front doors killing are kids at the movies

          • Your sentences are too long. Shorten them and use more full stops. This message is from your friend a black African and English teacher from Cameroon. Why hate people and races? I don’t hate Americans. I was taught English by Americans . Learn to love people and you shall be a happier person.

        • black people are more racist because their always saying that white people are racist but their not… i wonder why also if we had more people like hitler the world might as well just set itself on fire

        • I just wanted to comment on how incoherent some of these comments are. I don’t know if I agree or disagree because I can’t even understand what you’re saying.

      • Hitler was sick, He killed people just because he wanted to, he got away with everything that he did wrong, he was gay, his homosexuality was on a roar, he would have sex (in the butt) we dont need anybody like him here. he was a @#$%ing gaywad

      • Do you even have any idea about what consequences did Adolf Hitler bring? Please let me know if you find any positive points about him. He was one who destroyed 50% percent of the population of Jewish colony, he caused problems in World War II. Hitler showed many signs of being corrupt, trying to wipe out an entire race being one of them. In Hitler’s eyes his intentions were good, many Germans also believed that what Hitler was doing was good but the rest of the world thought that his actions were completely wrong and had to be stopped.He was a genocidal madman, does that count? He wanted to eradicate an entire section of humanity just because he didn’t like them. I consider that a fairly large negative. He obtained power by murdered people who disagreed with him and his policies. He imprisoned anyone who disagreed.

      • Do you even have any idea about what consequences did Adolf Hitler bring? Please let me know if you find any positive points about him. He was one who destroyed 50% percent of the population of Jewish colony, he caused problems in World War II. He insulted arets and literature, killed people who went against him. Nick would you like to stay in a country where you don’t have freedom to speak, free to explain?

    • do you know what racism is ??
      racism is and i will give you the exact definition:
      the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.

    • He wasn’t a racist, Jews aren’t a race. He never killed blacks or asians or arabs. A lot of thise ethnicities served in tye Wehrmacht voluntarily.

  • Hitler is the best man ever to live on earth. Direct, truthful and fierce leader as he was, he gave his people identity and increased the will of the ordinary German to that of a superman. Thankx to him the iron shackles of the colonial masters were broken; France and Britain became weak so had to give the created African nations their independence.
    As for the Jews it was Karma paying them back for their stupid ethnic cleansing doctrine they preach in their synagogues claiming to instructions from their God.
    They used the same technique on the Amorites, Hitites and the rest, and are still using the same in the middle east.

    • Why what about the 6 million Jews he kill. Think about all families that were ripped apart. Kids that didn’t reac adulthood. Wow you are a bad person

        • Exactly. People are so blindly by random numbers. Did anyone count them one by one until they got EXACTLY 6 million. And Hitler can be called both a genious and a fool. Its all opinion.

          • ^ This reply is as intelligent as you will find when having a conversation/argument about Hitler, et all.
            I believe Hitler can be looked upon as a genius as easily as a fool. His methods were not noble by any means but this is a man, in my opinion, who attempted to do more to advance his homeland and the citizens therein than any leader before him. Sure as f**k he followed through with more political promises (be them loud and declared or low and whispered) than any leader before…..?

    • You are a terrible person. We have the right to have our own religion. So what if they believed in God? I believe in God. Are you going to throw me in a concentration camp? Besides not all of the Jews had the same ethnic views. Why did all of them have to be punished? You think Hitler is so great, even though he has sinned way more than anyone? You think genocide is okay? You’re a terrible person. Rot in hell.

  • Hiel Hitler! From grass to grace; My mentor rose and all ghettos take inspiration from u cos u are one of our own

  • f**k all you Jew, n****r lovers! Stupid hippies. White guilt and white apathy make me sick! Or these stupid so called white b*tches who f**k n***ers. If only you knee how they talk about your white a** with their fellow nigs when you aint around. Its dumb whites like you who got this Muslim, communist n****r predident elected! What we need is a rise to Fascism again. f**k democracy and f**k communism! And if you disagree, f**k you and your mother!

  • Heil Hitler..

    he did what must had been done years before he was a Great Man i Admire him for the rest of my life and these american m*therf**kers are all liars they lie lie and lie about things they never saw or heard only because Hitler almost conquered half of the earth they were scared as sh*t to lose the war so started f**king rumrers and still are doing it ……
    Heil Hitler f**k The Rest

    • Honestly that’s a really stupid thing to say considering the fact that there is so much evidence to refute what u said about Americans spreading rumors. I don’t think a concentration camps just existed to exist and I doubt people wouldn’t just start dying in ridiculously large numbers without there being a reason for it. Also if the Nazi didn’t do all that they did survivors wouldn’t have these stories about when they went through those times as a jew or wat ever ethnic group they were of. It is people like u who are making the world as bad as it is now. I mean what if it was ur religion or ethnic group that was in the Jews place it would not wat so ever be a situation where a man like Hitler would be a person u respected and supported like this. For the people saying it isn’t true bc u can’t be sure the number of people who were killed during this time it doesn’t matter bc nobody should be getting killed simply bc the Germans needed to feel better about loosing the war bc they bit off more they could chew. It is inhumane to treat people the way the Jews were treated. There is so much more I want to say about this I just can’t find the words to express my anger and I honestly think if u can’t see how bad this man and his actions were u really should go rot in hell

  • Hitler did not like Jews for the fact that they kept their money amongst themselves and didn’t put it back into the German economy. That’s fact. Say what you want about the man but he was possibly the greatest public speaker of his time. I’m not saying I like Hitler in any way but you have to acknowledge that his speeches raised moral levels of Germans through the roof.

  • Hitler was my hero, I have posters of him all over my wall. sometimes I draw on a fake moustache and walk around the house pretending I am him. he is the greatest hero to ever live and I think we should have a day where we celebrate Hitler’s legacy. He is my hero, and always will be.

  • he lived with his cousin and they had a relationship until she took her life. He would also curl into a ball on the floor nude and ask women to kick him.

  • Adolph Hitler was the Best leader in the world! He stopped foreign corruption and made the German people proud of their heritage! This president obama here in america is a damm laughing stock of the world! He has turned america into a jungle! The american people are SICK of this obama sh*t! Keep the American true blood sacred.f**k ISLAM FOREVER!

  • if u were a german living during those days, u wouldn’t call him terrible now would u?….at worst u might view him as being a bit violent.

  • Hitler was a great leader and a the greatest I suppose. He was the best in many aspects. But still how are you guys supporting the Mass killing of Jews?

  • ok ok! i calmed down so you guys like Hitler right?

  • WTF YOU KNOW WHAT? ADOLF HITLER DESERVES A KICK UP HIS a**.IT IS A SHAME THAT HE DIDN’T GET A MORE GRUESOME DEATH LIKE NAILS GETTING PUNCHED IN HIS BACK OR BEING HUNG BY HIS GENTILE. HE DESERVES IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Guys, Shitler -oh sorry- I meant Hitler had a really hard life so don’t be too rough with him. He did do some really bad things and we need to see what he did was really wrong. I’m a Jew and Hitler should not have been so racist because I mean think about it this way: If Hitler had been born a Jew or let’s say a African American, none of this would have happened-or would it have? Maybe he would have thought that African Americans are the superior race-they’re not. But neither are Americans, Jews, Asians, or anyone else. NO ONE IS SUPERIOR!.
