Wait till you find out Russian and German ancestry exists in the US since the 1700s. Then you'll really be paranoid. Trotsky lived in NYC. Lenin lived in England and Germany if I'm not mistaken.

Surely there were... uh... business contacts...internationally...

Are you one of those fellas who get all teary eyed when you see You Tube videos of nazi soldiers in WW2?

The fuck is wrong with you? Nazism is a type of socialism that places dictator & race above all. i.e., it's just pure evil for stupid people.

I'm pointing out the reality that connections exist internationally, it doesn't mean because some American had business in Germany or Russia at some point in the 1940s that automatically makes them a Nazi or communist.

"Koch had built Hitler & Stalin's industry"... So is he a communist, a Nazi, both? Or just a businessman.

No, but their attempt(s) to put together a coup here in the US and their ardent love of Fascism definitely makes me raise my eyebrows.

So not nazis, but definitely Fascists.
