* There's a tendency for British people to assume that all prestigious and/or DarkerAndEdgier American drama series are Creator/{{HBO}} products, including ones that actually are by rival channels like Creator/{{Showtime}}. This reached its peak when Creator/{{Sky}} launched its Sky Atlantic channel for imported US drama with blanket references to HBO in the publicity, despite the fact that many of its highest-profile initial licenses were not HBO shows.

** He wasn't an atheist, nor a specifically religious man either. He just used religion to justify his own viewpoints and win people's trust, while actually surplanting their beliefs with his own personality cult. Some of the concentration camp prisoners were Christians who were too devout for Hitler's tastes; as Christian youth groups, for example, where competition for the government-approved ones.

** Hitler was not a socialist, nor a communist. The full name of the Nazi party was indeed "national-socialist party", but their viewpoints were way different than those of actual socialists, whom Hitler imprisoned and exterminated by the score. Hitler's politics only benefitted white people of supposedly Aryan descent and excluded everyone else, even white Germans who just happened to have a handicap or some sort of "unpure" racial heritage in their roots, a far cry from the socialist party's egalitarian ideals.

Painting Hitler as a communist is even further off the mark, considering he launched an open war of extermination to destroy the Soviet Union.

* UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler is also a popular choice for WrongfullyAttributed opinions. During arguments people will eventually accuse their opponents of having the same viewpoint as Hitler (a phenomenon known as GodwinsLaw). Usually certain opinions are attributed to Hitler, even though he had nothing to do with them. For instance: Hitler was not a socialist, nor a communist. The full name of the Nazi party was indeed "national-socialist party", but their viewpoints were way different than those of actual socialists, whom Hitler imprisoned and exterminated by the score.

Also, what Hitler stood for is in many cases just a case of HitlerAteSugar. Just because he was for or against certain things doesn't automatically make everything "evil". A simple example: the Nazis were early proponents of animal rights and anti-smoking activism. These are good initiatives, who just happen to be pioneered by a despicable ideology. ** The Nazis are often credited with creating concentration camps. They weren't the first, though. The British already used concentration camps during the Boer Wars, though not for genocidical reasons but to keep POW's jailed in one location.
