Hitler was one of many, many despots in a long history of despots who did the same things. Why is he disproportionately vilified.?

  • He was more recent, more successful, and more aggressive towards those who write the history books (i.e. the wealthier majority-White nations).

  • He was the first to have initiated a systematic plan of execution on a mass scale of certain ethnic and other groups (the mentally and physically impaired) simply for being who they were. Certainly, other despots practiced mass killings, but not because of who these people were, but because they were an obstacle to taking land.

    Stalin was close behind in his mass purges of those he saw as political opposition.

  • Oh I don't know, maybe the 75 million people he killed has something to do with it.
