How Did South America Become A Haven For Nazis?

Ever since the 2016 election it has become clear the U.S. is full of Neo-Nazis and white supremacists who have been hiding in plain sight until they felt comfortable revealing themselves and their patently stupid brand of hate.

But now that most of them have been exposed to the light the vast majority of Americans have proven they won't put up with them, or their hate-filled message, without a fight.

And these were just the 21st century wanna-be Nazis, so how could South American countries like Chile, Argentina and Brazil happily invite Nazis and their collaborators into their countries after World War II?:

Due to the hundreds of thousands of German immigrants who lived in the country, Argentina maintained close ties with Germany and remained neutral for much of World War II. In the years after the end of the war, Argentine President Juan Peron secretly ordered diplomats and intelligence officers to establish escape routes, so-called “ratlines,” through ports in Spain and Italy to smuggle thousands of former SS officers and Nazi party members out of Europe. As with numerous other fascist-leaning South American leaders, Peron had been drawn to the ideologies of Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler while serving as a military attaché in Italy during the early years of World War II. The Argentine president also sought to recruit those Nazis with particular military and technical expertise that he believed could help his country, much like the United States and the Soviet Union who both poached scientists from the Third Reich to assist them in the Cold War.

If you've ever wondered how many Nazis and collaborators made their way to South America after WWII here are the educated estimates, which are staggering:

According to a 2012 article in the Daily Mail, German prosecutors who examined secret files from Brazil and Chile discovered that as many as 9,000 Nazi officers and collaborators from other countries escaped from Europe to find sanctuary in South American countries. Brazil took in between 1,500 and 2,000 Nazi war criminals, while between 500 and 1,000 settled in Chile. However, by far the largest number—as many as 5,000—relocated to Argentina.

Bullshit! if Neatorama is going to descend to being just another mud-slinging political site, I'll take my clicks elsewhere.

" If you view opposing them or even acknowledging their existence is "political mudslinging"" Yeah, no. The fact is that the opening of this post was clearly saying, "I hate Trump and because of his successful campaign We now know that 50% of the country is part of the KKK." But that is a lie. And pretending that that is not what the author was getting at is silly. The author didn't even both with a 'half full' ... nope, it is 100% full. Right to the top. Yep, total lie from the Main Stream Fake New Media. But since the left never bothers to think, it is easy to put out these lies and have them accepted.

Somehow the fake media cannot tell the difference between racist and people who just want immigration laws enforced. Other countries get called progressive when they enforce their laws. But when the US starts doing that, we get called "full of Neo-Nazis and white supremacists who have been hiding in plain sight ."
