I was answering Rocky's writing but quoted you, because yours looked like a shorter version of what he was saying. I wouldn't have known the difference until you pointed out that you were talking about present day.
But, like skinheads everywhere, I'm sure it's the younger people who are praising Hitler, not the one's who actually lived through WW II. There may be a few throwbacks, but very few people who were in that hell would ever think Hitler was a good thing.
Obviously, the skinheads have one thing in common with Hitler's regime, and that's the "lets blame someone else for our problems" mentality. That's why Germany was poor, because the Jews had all the money. And that's why Poland is still poor, because they didn't take care of all the Jews. Of course if the Jews were all dead, they'd pick some other group to blame their problems on, but the mentality would be the same.
Sometimes I wish there were Fanatic Ovens somewhere, but then I realize that thoughts like that make me no better than them. The world is going to hell in a hand basket. The only sane people left are all here on TP, although I do wonder about the rest of you sometimes...
