By the way, Ratzinger was a freakin real live Nazi.

Following his 14th birthday in 1941, Ratzinger was conscripted into the Hitler Youth—as membership was required by law for all 14-year-old German boys after December 1939[9]—but was an unenthusiastic member who refused to attend meetings, according to his brother.[10] In 1941, one of Ratzinger's cousins, a 14-year-old boy with Down syndrome, was taken away by the Nazi regime and killed during the Aktion T4 campaign of Nazi eugenics.[11] In 1943, while still in seminary, he was drafted into the German anti-aircraft corps as Luftwaffenhelfer.[10] Ratzinger then trained in the German infantry.[12] As the Allied front drew closer to his post in 1945, he deserted back to his family's home in Traunstein after his unit had ceased to exist, just as American troops established their headquarters in the Ratzinger household.[13] As a German soldier, he was put in a POW camp but was released a few months later at the end of the war in the summer of 1945.[13] He reentered the seminary, along with his brother Georg, in November of that year.

He was required by law to enter Hitlers youth, and then drafted into the military a few years later.
And you do realize that many, many, many German soldiers took absolutely ZERO part in the holocaust? Many refused, in fact most refused when approached. Those that did were given lots of special treatment, higher pay, more time off...didn't have to fight in the war, better food, alcohol, cigarettes, prosititutes etc. etc. This is what it took to get the few who were a part of it to continue to do so.

He was never a Nazi party member. Hitler youth membership was mandatory, being in the party wasn't. By all accepted definitions he was never a Nazi.

Robert Byrd, on the other hand, was an actual member of the 1920's version of the Klan, as were millions of other southern protestants, including politicians. Remember there were 3 distinct phases of the Klan, the one from the 1860's to 1880, the one from the 1910's and 1920's, and the current one that started in the 1950's.

Bullshit.

That's the sanitatized version of history.

What Hitler did was fully supported by the majority of the German people and a good part of Europe. Even Pope Pius signed on to his madness. There were many countries that happily built death camps for the Jewish people and rounded them up. But they don't like to talk about it today..in fact many will deny it altogether.

I don't believe I mentioned the German people?
I stated that most soldiers that were asked to physically take part in Death Camps and SS duties refused. This is documented in historical records within the Reich. As it is also documented that they had to heavily "bribe" soldiers with all kinds of fringe benefits to keep them.
Soldiers serving in camps were not required to stay.
At the same time by time the German people began to realize that all of the propaganda videos showing camps having schools for the kids, regular meals, exercise areas was quite the opposite at what was happening - the war was winding down.
It is of course true that German people knew and supported the early measures - closing Jewish businesses, confiscating wealth, moving them to their own living areas, and numerous other damning treatment - but as for the final solution - no - your average German citizen knew nothing of the sort until towards the end of the war when more and more rumors began to develop that were hard to deny.
