Communism - an ideology created largely by Karl Marx, the key features are:
- common ownership of the means of prosecution (e.g. Factories)
- no social classes
- abolition of money
- abolition of the state

Hitler didn't like communists because the Communist ideology didn't conform with his Nationalist ideology. Hitler viewed the communists as a threat to the German nation he was trying to build.

He also arguably distrusted the internationalist aspect of communism - he disliked anything that gave people international links. He persecuted speakers of the international language Esperanto, for example.

He also didn't like communism because he saw it as an invention by the jews. He often used the term Judeo-Bolshevism in propaganda when he invaded the USSR claiming they were defeating the forces of 'Judeo-Bolshevism'.

Lots of Communists were Jewish such as Marx (the founder of modern day communism) and Trotsky, another influential communist.

Hitler wasn't the only anti-communist politician at the time. Almost EVERYONE despised communism - in fact many countries such as Czechoslovakia and Finland were more worried about Communism rather than Hitler's national socialism and wanted France and Britain to oppose Stalin instead.

Many in Britain wanted an alliance with Hitler against the communists.

The idea of communism for many was a bad thing- if communism/socialism was spread throughout the world, politicians would cease to have any influence so it was their interest to oppose Communism like Hitler did.

LeapingLucy Karl Marx never created communism. It was John d'Hupay. Karl Marx only wrote the Communist Manifesto. This just showed Marx's support and goals for communism.

Abolition of the State? Have you read anything written by Marx? The communist manifesto has 10 tenants of communism. Let me know if these tenants sound like they're trying to abolish the state. Here they are, straight from the manifesto itself:1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.8. Equal liability of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country.10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production.5-7 all say that their putting power into the hands of the state, and a very valid argument could be made that all of these tenants require massive state intervention. I suggest that you do research before the next time that you post anything online.

And I suggest that you do very basic research such as checking the age of a thread before sneering. You might also try to learn basic techniques such as quoting the person you are sneering at rather than just giving everyone the "benefit" of your wisdom.
