Hitler was one of many, many despots in a long history of despots who did the same things. Why is he disproportionately vilified.?

    He was not 'disproportionately' vilified. No one killed more people through war and vile murders like he did!

    He was more recent, more successful, and more aggressive towards those who write the history books (i.e. the wealthier majority-White nations).

    Because the ones of the past were barbarians like Genghis Khan and Hitler came one of the world s great civilizations who produced Mozart, Beethoven, Goethe, Albrecht Durer and whose Technology and Science was among the best in the world and he managed not only to bring the world into a second world war but lay ruin to man countries Poland, Russia and doing much damage bombing England and totally destroying his own country as well as facilitating the death of 50,000 people. He killed people like cattle in death camps did horrible medical experiments on humans and tried to not only destroy the Jewish people but their culture by burning their books and destroying their places of worship 267 synagogues were destroyed in German and Austria. He tired to create a master race of blue eyed blond headed Supermen by forced breeding blond Norwegian women with German soldiers. He branded Jews and Gypsies subhuman., He killed homosexuals and handicapped human beings.

    He was the first to have initiated a systematic plan of execution on a mass scale of certain ethnic and other groups (the mentally and physically impaired) simply for being who they were. Certainly, other despots practiced mass killings, but not because of who these people were, but because they were an obstacle to taking land.

    Stalin was close behind in his mass purges of those he saw as political opposition.

    What would be proportionate?

    Which other despot would you you like to see more of?

    Name one who "did the same things".

    Because he was recent, and we still have generational history that is still essentially current? Who the hell cares about Ghengis Khan, its not current or generational, its ancient history?

    Oh I don't know, maybe the 75 million people he killed has something to do with it.
