    "Hitler has something mysterious about him. he was the stuff of legends" - JFK wrote in his diary

    JFK visited Hitler's Bavarian holiday home as well as a teahouse that Hitler counstructed on a mountaintop. JFK wrote: "who has visited these 2 places can easily imagine how Hitler in a few years will emerge from the hatred currently surrounding him as on of the most important personalities that ever lived"

    A Berliner in 1963 – but did former US president John F Kennedy once

    now as for FDR, he once said about Mussolini: "i am much interested and deeply impressed by what he has accomplished. I don't mind telling you in confidence that I am keeping in fairly close touch with that admirable Italian gentleman."

    Back in the Lenin & then Stalin days, the Left loved Russia. Today with Putin, the Right loves Russia. Politics is sort of funny, huh?

    Hey, I was so shocked that you actually found the link procedure I fell down.

    Very well, here ya go. Article sez:

    >> The book, John F Kennedy among the Germans, suggests that in the late 1930s Kennedy, who was a student in his twenties, accepted Nazi race theories and approved of fascist rule. <<

    --- but then completely fails to cite any evidence therefor. And of course JFK was a noted WWII figure serving in the Navy heroically. WWII, I'll save you a link, was against Germany. And then just to state the obvious, "important" and "the stuff of legends" are not qualitative judgments. Do you know what that word means? And the other state-the-obvious is that JFK would have turned twenty years old during 1937 and was a long way from being in politics.

    Duh.

    Next step for you seems to be to read beyond your own headline and figure out that they're not always honest. In fact they rarely are.

    “I have come to the conclusion that fascism is right for Germany and Italy. What are the evils of fascism compared to communism?”

    sounds more like trump
