    Yes, I mean there is a nazi party in Denmark, they will never in a million years get a seat in the parliament but they are still there as a party and have tried to get elected in regional and municipal elections, again without any luck.
    They're a bunch of sad pathetic fucks who cling to hopeless idea that they can one day establish wannabe 4th reich.

    So we both had and still have actual nazis and nazi sympathizers in Denmark.

    Yep, we had communist sympathizers too, some of them even pretty famous, Henry Ford, Walt Disney, I think even one of the Windsors if I am not mistaken. Most countries had sympathizers, some people thought it was possible to have peace or appease Nazi's like a SHIT load of people today.

    People think of Nazi's and that time as though everyone was in a parade waving and cheering Hitler or some shit.

    That isn't how it happen, and most certainly isn't how things developed. Hitler was ELECTED, the Nazi party was elected, and they did this after a lot of fence sitters and people who just wanted peace at any price.

    The trouble is people never learn from history, and it's relatively easy to forget who has to pay that price, when it comes to populism and shit.

    "Oh because I like someone", or "someone I like couldn't possibly be all that bad"


    People often don't want to believe whats happening in front of their own face, otherwise they might feel guilt about having to do something, and conforming and going along if you can is easier and safer.

    So as it stated, yes for example in the U.S we had lots of Nazi sympathizers, some of the most famous people, the difference is people didn't put up with that kind of bullshit back then, and if you were thought to have leanings against your own fucking country especially in times of conflict, they had a process of dealing with that shit.


    If what was done to Communist had been done with Nazi's Nazis would likely not exist or be though of as even worse.

    By today's standards of the word Nazi, Germany had very few. Same as Lindbergh and many other Nazi sympathizers pre 1943ish. Hell, pre 1937ish Hitler was just a strong leader with some racist ideas that were not all that out of line with the times he was living in.

    Once we got the pictures of the liberation of Auschwitz the word Nazi was very much redefined.

    Still does in the form of neo-nazis grouping together under e.g Nordic Resistance Movement.

    Back in the 30s and 40s though there were these guys too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nation...Party_(Sweden)

    My Hungarian grandfather volunteered into the Wermacht in 1940 as he found the at time time Nazi allied Hungarian government too slow on embracing Hitler's world view. Hungary had plenty of sympathizers who gleefully collaborated with the pogroms and deportations, Hungarian Jews and Rroma being one of the largest contingent of Holocaust victims.

    He got transferred/promoted into the SS in 1944 when a Hungarian SS division was formed. He eventually surrendered to US forces in Austria, they handed him over to the Russians and he was in a Russian prison camp until 1953, returned to Hungary and fought to the Soviets in the Hungarian Uprising in 1956, when that was quashed he left for Austria again, met and married my grandmother there, avoiding a 2nd stint in a Russian camp. He arrived to the US in 1958 via Belgium, this time being an anti-communist hero.

    He spent the rest of his life in the US being silently racist and anti-semitic. Grumbled when my dad married my Greek Orthodox mother but eventually accepted it. In his last years his overtly racist "Hitler did nothing wrong" side came out again, especially after my grandmother died (she was his polar opposite politically, I have no idea how she accepted him). We had incidents where he sent food back because the waiter was a person of color and shit like that in his last 2 years.

    Those were different times. My grandfather was also quite the racist, nationalist and monarchist. His brother/my uncle who is still alive and we still talk can spend half an hour if i don't interrupt talking about "gypsies". Last time we talked we almost fought over it, as he tried to smear another of my relatives that came into the family later and is apparently half-rroma. Obviously all the problems that happened in her family were because of that according to my uncle.

    My family didn't really get as far as praising Hitler or the Nazis because we suffered a lot because of that war, repeatedly so, like we were cursed. Uplifted from ancestral home and "exiled" a number of times, first by Nazi sympathizers, then by the Russian "help" which were just as much as an invader, and a tad later by the communists. It was just in the last years that we got compensated by the complete loss of our lands and possessions that are now part of Bulgaria. The last uprooting of my family was dramatically cruel and resulted in multiple deaths during the "population exchange" that happened.

    We should all be thankful that we get to live in this era, and in peace for most of us here. Sadly, very few are willing to actually understand how far we have come and how lucky we are.

    The problem is that people never learn the truth.
    Hitler wasn't elected, he never got a majority.
    Hitler was put in charge because the conservatives made him Chancellor. They allowed him to take power with a minority of the votes.

    They used the letter of the law because the law supports undemocratic behaviour when capitalism is under threat.

    He actually got the majority of the votes to give him all the power, while getting rid of parliament, its just that they put most of the people who would have voted against in prison[the entire communist party and half the Soc Dem party] Only 2 parties where against, so its not like it was that hard to jail them.

    Practically every eastern bloc and German region immigrant we had in Australia during that age and the decades after it seems like. Every single one I've known and talked to have all said similar on the same topics. Hate communism, hate Stalin, hated the Jews involved in the aristocracy and the majority liked Hitler and said it was good or their parents said it was good living under him in the 30's. My wifes gran mother said her and her sister were able to escape the allies rape fest by jumping trains on semi repaired supply lines but their mother and some other family was killed by them. I had an ex whose grand father was a Jew but fought for Hitler in the African campaign. He was discharged after getting shot in the arse from trying to sneak over to another fox hole that had a billie tea going lolol.
    Some hated Hitler for the devastation caused from the war but one thing I learned was never ever mention Stalin or communism, or every one of them would fly off into a rage and break down talking about their families being separated and murdered under that regime.
    Some got quite passionate about it. I spoke once to a guy I worked with in the late 90's in a factory he was Hungarian. I said something like 'so what was life like in nazi germany for you and your parents' and his reply was 'it was great when Hitler got rid of those jew aristocrats that destroyed my people in the old empire'.

    We had a lot of eastern bloc and former empire immigrants into Australia, quite a passionate bunch. Even now with most of the immigrants alive coming from the eastern bloc in the years proceeding the war are in their 70's but put 2 together in a room and they will talk about that period non stop for hours.

    We had Percy 'Inky' Stephensen

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-01-...ralia/10713514

    Australian Nazis were not only on the fringes but made up by a selection of more mainstream political travellers, tourists, writers, poets, mystics, aesthetes and academic thinkers," he says.

    The group was eventually suppressed by Australian security agencies after it pushed for a political alliance with the Axis powers of Germany, Italy and Japan.

    Stephensen was interned for much of World War II.

    He spent almost three years in a camp without trial — a decision described by Australia's official war historian Paul Hasluck as the "grossest infringement of individual liberty made during the war".

    Here is a picture of Percy... he even has a Hitler moustache
