    Inglourious Basterds, really? You think the mentality we use to cheer on the Nazi deaths is similar to what the Nazis used to try to exterminate a whole religion? It is similar in that we think the Nazis deserve their death and mutilation like they thought the Jews did but there is a big, big difference: the Jews didn’t kill millions of people in the most heinous ways possible. The Nazis got that one covered. So I think there is a pretty big difference between cheering on the death of someone you KNOW killed and tortured people and deciding to just wipe out a nation of people and the fact that it is mentioned is insulting. You pretty much just told any Jews who cheered on that movie that they weren’t any better than the Nazis.

      At the end, all that matters is how ANY killer would try to justify killing his victims by de-humanizing them, meaning making them something less human than themselves.

      That’s why “an eye-for-an eye” logic leads nowhere, but alternating the executionner/victim roles forever.

      Replace Nazis and Jews with communists killing opponents, U.S army killing Indians, Muslims killing Hindus, Serbs killing Croats etc. and you will notice the pattern

        I think an eye for an eye works in Texas…Question: if you don’t believe in holding people accountable for their crimes, how would you run things?

      It was showing how propaganda affects people. The German people as well as the nazis were convinced Jews were the cause of all that was wrong in the world by the fascist propaganda regime. They thought they were doing the world a service, just like the allied powers we doing in the movie.

      criss,
      while your logic is quite sound, using Jewish people to strengthen your argument, as the SOLE victims of Nazi cruelty, is either narrow minded, naive, or both. Jews weren’t the only victims- they were the most visible ones. It truly boggles my mind that whenever the subject of WW2 comes up, it’s always about the Jewish extermination… without mentioning the other countless victims of the Nazi regime: Poles, Russians, Gypsies, Russians, Ukrainians, French, Czech, homosexuals, etc.; if you are to make an argument like that, don’t put Jews front and center- it has a tendency to make other groups persecuted during that war as if their sacrifice didn’t matter. Also, Hitler’s plan wasn’t to exterminate a Religion, but rather to eradicate a whole ethnic group: there were plenty of non-practicing jews, as well as catholics, protestants, muslims. Hitler’s plan was to exterminate anyone who didn’t fall under the Aryan race template. Hope you don’t take this post as an insult- i still think you have a sound logic 😉

        It is hard not to take your post as an insult when you call my own narrow minded or naive. Either way, I don’t. But as there were not 6 million other casualties from any one other category of people, I would ask why you wouldn’t put the Jewish extermination as the key note of the whole war. It literally defines the entire period of time. My post was not to portray the Jews as the sole victims of the war, you are right, there are many, many more. And I am well aware of the Aryan race template being in play for them. But when millions of people from one group of people are demolished, that makes it a very obvious personal vendetta. As for a couple of the other comments, again, there is a HUGE difference in cheering on the deaths of people who have caused so much of it on their own and cheering on the death of millions of innocent people. And I don’t think propaganda has come into play about the Nazis. The information is not misleading to get us to hate them. They did it all. It’s now fact. Propaganda is what they used during the war to try to coerce a whole country into helping with their eradication of the Jews. Btw, not Jewish. But as a human being, for sure World War 2 in my head links immediately to the killing of millions of people who didn’t deserve it. And it should always be that way.

      True. In fact most people felt sorry for the soldiers who died in the bar fight as they were average soldiers following orders. Cheering on the deaths of SS men and NAZI leaders is far different.

      I’m not defend nazis but some those men weren’t German and were force to fight with them .we got be the bigger man or we are not better than them cause we thinking just like them and eventually we’ll try get paid back resulting in a other war we don’t need
