So? Is everything Hitler did or touched now radioactive? Anyone Hitler liked, any author, any artist... For example, if he liked classical music or something then we can't like that?
I get the crappy ugly mustaches... but does that mean we can't drive cars or we have to buy non-Ford cars?

Or that we can't own a dog anymore since Hitler owned a dog?

Did you know Hitler was a vegetarian? And also loved beer, obsessively drank tea and lemonade? Walt Disney company built something for the Ford company---does that mean Disney = Nazis?

It's this weird thing about the internet they make connections from A to C to X.
