I'm honestly tired of people immediately comparing all anti-semites to nazis. To be fair, part of the reason is the school system for not covering it very well, but most of the world for most of the history of Europe Jews were a discriminated party. That didn't start with Hitler. Pick up a book once and awhile.

The communist revolutionaries had lots of educated Jews in their number. Remember the Nazis were the biggest enemies of the Communists. However Jews were not a majority, they were just overrepresented per their percent of the population, probably due to being more highly educated.

I highly doubt a former KGB member is an advocate of Nazism when their ranks were staunchly in support of the USSR, a communist government.

Nazis were the nationalist socialist party of Germany, so no, Putin is not a Nazi.

From what I read though Jews did take advantage of the extremely poor German economy post WW1 and that's part of what allowed Hitler to gain so much power and why Germany was apprehensive of Jews in the first place.

Wow somebody failed history class quite badly didn't they. The USSR and the Third Reich were allied powers until Hitler made the biggest strategic mistake of his life and decided to invade the USSR. I mean for fucks sake make the Nazis started out as a Socialist party, it's right there in their name the National Socialist German Workers' Party. They focused on the same anti-capitalist, anti-big business,and anti-bourgeois policies as the USSR did. In reality the Nazis and the USSR had more in common with each then they had differences.

In reality the only difference between Nazism and Stalinism is the colour of their respective flags.

Why do we have to use the Nazi comparison? Putin is Putin.

The USSR and the Third Reich were never allies. They had the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact, which was a non-aggression agreement, not a formal alliance, and it wasn't even made in good faith. Both sides just saw it as buying time until they started fighting each other. For Hitler it was time to do as he pleased with Europe, for Stalin it was to build up the Soviet war machine so they could actually stand head-to-head with Germany. The Nazi's might've been socialist (in the sense that they advocate for greater state control over Industry) but they were thoroughly anti-communist. The Bolshevik boogeyman was the great ideological enemy of the movement,

No. So long as he keeps his business in Russia, and doesn't start comitting crimes, against humanity. I don't care what he does or says. though I wish he would stop proping up North Korea and end the massive coruption in his country.

Putin crushes CNN smartass Fareed Zakaria on Donald Trump and US elections - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBTBBNOtbhM

I prefer to live in Russia than America because of the terrorist attacks that took many people lives, and yet Obama doesn't give a damn about these people. All Obama does is gave a speech and said this was an "act of terror". Act of terror my ass while people are dying, and do you think people will give 2 cents about your words?! And he still not taking these type of terror attacks seriously.

And I do agree with Putin that America funds ISIS, because why ISIS keeps attacking America but not other country like China, Cuba, Poland nor Russia?

The jews were mistrusted across Europe and the wider world not for their religion and beliefs but purely for their success and wealth. Before Judaism if you wanted a loan under say catholicism it was forbidden by their laws to charge interest on said loans. Jewish bankers were exempt from this so they became fabulously rich but also hated by the common people who relied on them to try and improve their lives but had to pay heavily for the opportunity. This is why in the 19th and early 20th century Jewish people were hugely influential particularly in banking. In the wake of World War I particularly in Germany but across Europe everyone had to go to these banks to try and get money to rebuild. The Nazi's went after the Jews purely to take these assets and wealth as they needed money and a lot of it to fund their war efforts, that the Jews were disliked for their success by the poor just made it that much easier to build support against them.

You are so wrong I wonder what country you grew up in. Both sides were only working together until they could back stab each other. Each ideology is vastly different and only share authoritarianism.

The Nazi were extremely pro business and pro capitalist. Seriously are you a neo liberal plant or delusional? What part of fascism, the uniting of business and government, doesn't imply capitalism?

The Germans modeled their salute after the Roman salute that was supposedly identical but has little evidence supporting it besides artwork and off accounts.
