I want to present a translation of an article by Alexander Rodgers, published on the 27 of March 2022. The topic of the article echoes closely the blooming support of racism and Nazism in the West, to the point of condoning such dark practices in the Baltics and in Ukraine. The roots of this can bes seen in the not so recent and in the recent history, where the idea of the crusades against Russia (in search of resource and land) always found hold in the Western society.

Now is the time to talk about the justification of Hitler and Nazism in general. It has been going on for many years, one might even say decades. And in this very Europe, it began during Hitler himself, in the thirties of the last century.
How did it happen? The formula “Stalin is worse than Hitler” and “the Bolsheviks are worse than the Nazis” was used, telling about the terrible Bolshevik threat, repression, totalitarianism, the terrible GULAG and so on.
At the same time, it was kept silent that there were much more people in Roosevelt’s labour armies than in Soviet labour camps. American McCarthyism was essentially no different from the Soviet struggle against foreign spies (which, as it turns out now, really existed). And during the Second World War, the Americans threw hundreds of thousands of their own fellow citizens into concentration camps, whose only fault was that they were of Japanese origin. Etc.
But I digress. Those who claim that “Stalin was worse than Hitler” thus justify Nazism. They say, “The Third Reich was a shield protecting Europe from the terrible Bolshevism” (this is exactly what the British and French newspapers wrote until Hitler attacked them). This is the justification of Nazism.
And in general, according to them, if Hitler had not destroyed the Jews, he would have been a darling. Because the extermination of Jews has its own separate name – the Holocaust. While the destruction of Slavs, Gypsies and other peoples (more Slavs than Jews died, by the way) does not have a specific term. According to their logic, it turned out that destroying Slavs is not as bad as destroying Jews. That’s the cynicism. And this is also an excuse for Nazism.
Stories about “Bolshevik hordes” eager to conquer the whole world justify Nazism. Some agreed to the point that supposedly the USSR was going to attack the West, and Hitler was just pre-empting Stalin. Similar tales were told about the invasion of Napoleon.
Similarly, the Ukrainian Nazis shelled the cities of Donbass for eight years, saying that they were “protecting Europe from the Russian invasion.” And the entire collective West diligently pretended to believe that.
Why is it important to talk about the justification of Hitler and Nazism today? Because today the West is doing exactly the same thing: demonizing Putin, talking about the terrible Russian totalitarianism that wants to conquer the whole world – and thereby they justify Nazism.
Do they not know in the West that the Azov regiment (an organization banned in Russia as extrimist) consists of neo-Nazis? They know perfectly well! There are dozens of publications on this subject, starting with French and German newspapers, and ending with the New York Times. But they turn a blind eye to this, because “these Nazis are protecting Europe from Putin.”
Eighty years have passed – nothing has changed.
Yes, they are Nazis! But it’s their Nazis!
In confirmation of this, British Interior Minister Priti Patel, in a conversation with Russian pranksters Vladimir Kuznetsov (Vovan) and Alexey Stolyarov (Lexus), who called her on behalf of Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shmygal, admitted that English families are ready to accept and help Ukrainian nationalists and neo-Nazis in every possible way.
And what does surprise you here? They’ve always done that!
After the Second World War, the United States rescued and sheltered thousands, tens of thousands of Nazis from criminal prosecution. Starting from the creator of the “weapon of retaliation” Werner von Braun (who then headed NASA) and ending with the Japanese butchers from the “detachment 731”, who conducted experiments on the use of biological weapons on Russian and Chinese prisoners of war.
And the United States is no stranger to using Nazis as its chained animals: for example, the regime of “black colonels” in Greece, with the help of which mass murders of Greek communists were arranged. Fascist dictator Augusto Pinochet killed tens of thousands of leftist Chileans. Detachments of the Nazi “Contras” in Latin America.
Pinochet, Duvalier, Trujillo, Batista, Saddam Hussein, Noriega, the ogre Bokassa (who gave diamonds to Henry Kissinger, buying his patronage) – that is an incomplete list of bloody dictators who were supported by the United States “for the sake of defeating communism.”
Now they are just as diligently not noticing the hundreds of thousands of Houthis who die every year in Yemen. For them, the bloody despotism of the Saudis is normal.
Therefore, the collective West’s support of the Nazis in Ukraine is a familiar practice for them, nothing new. There’s nothing to see here, move along! Just another breed of lapdog Nazis of the State Department…
