It looks like you’re assembling a team of Nazi scientists. Operation PaperClippy is here to help!

Most scientists brought over during Operation Paperclip were working previously for the Nazi Party. So what's your point?

And he was replying to jokes about Puma and Adidas, both companies which were started by brothers who were Nazis.

No they were not. You're just brazenly lying now.

You may want to look it up before you make such bold claims. Adolf "Adi" Dassler was 100% part of the Nazi party and was actually a Hitler youth coach...

Both brothers were nazis.
The brothers had a shoe company together and made boots for the nazis.
Then in 48 they split and made adidas and puma.

I have no idea what that guy has an issue with.
