Nazis Hated Jews AND Communists

The US right-wing often likes to compare the US left-wing to communists and to Nazis, and more or less equate the two. Believe me, I've seen this many times. It is dumb of course, as fascism is very very different from communism. I guess conservatives get easily confused (one problem is they swallow WAY too much disinfo), and take the Socialist part of Nazis literally and equate it with communism (which is dumb too).

Anyway, it wasn't until I started reading about the Holocaust that I realized that the Nazis HATED Communists, and one reason they killed so many Jews, especially in Russia, was because they equated Jews with Communists.
