Santa rant against folk festival sponsor (68* d) RE: rant against folk festival sponsor 15 Jul 08

I find it difficult to accept that the evil done by Hitler is somehow merged with the idea of the Volkswagen. It seems to me that the idea of the VW (which actually failed to meet the desired requirements at the time) was a perfectly good idea in itself. Hitler did not create everything done in Germany between 1933 and 1945: not everything done in Germany between 1933 and 1945 was necessarily evil. The very concept, of evil that did exist affecting everything done in the area at that time, and since, appears petty and narrow-minded to an extreme. What about Ford, who produced much of the Wehrmacht's lorries?

As was pointed out, the survival and continued 63 year existence of the Volkswagen car company owes nothing to the Nazi regime. The protester sounds like the true bigot here.

No, I don't and never have owned a VW.
