Michael Jackson -- Nazi Flick Fan?

7/25/2010 3:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's ideal double feature -- an Adolf Hitler documentary with a Judy Garland chaser ... that's according to a video distributor who claims to have provided Jackson plenty of both.

Norman Scherer tells the NY Post that MJ had a penchant for collecting Nazi documentaries. Scherer, who owns a videotape distribution company, says Jackson had a "really good collection" -- which included, "Nazis -- Of Pure Blood," "Oasis of the Zombies" and "Hitler's Children."

Scherer also claims Jackson enjoyed Judy Garland's TV specials and dramas depicting troubled boys in dysfunctional families.

The first several comments pretty said it all! Why can't you people at tmz leave MJ and his family alone! As others have said alot of people love Judy Garland,and all of her movies were not like that,stop trying to make it out to be something it's not. Also kids study hitler in school,as well as others,but again(as was already pointed out)just because someone researchs/studies him does not mean they approve of what he did.
The only people I see who are obsessed,and dysfunctional here are you people at tmz,who continue stalking,and harassing the Jackson family over every little thing they do,and say! They are damned if they do and damned if they don't. I hope oneday the Jackson's slap one huge lawsuit on you,speakin of which whatever happened to the big lawsuit Debbie Rowe slapped on tmz last year? TMZ stop harassing,stop being obsessed with the Jackson's,stop twisting the truth to fit your twisted minds,just stop lying,start telling the truth!

Why oh Why?    

I think Michael would have loved to lead a whole army the way Hitler did. Look at some of his videos....he is there, in his "uniform", in front of the "soldiers".

But unlike Hitler, Michael wanted an Army of Love.
Maybe that was his dream - if it can be done to destroy people, it can be done the other way round, to save people.

So, does that mean that everyone who watches the History Channel are scary Nazi believers?
Come on TMZ, don't spread this crap - you sound like Fox news.

Still just amazes me how quick to defend MJ everyone is. Ohh Michael wasnt a nazi, he wasnt a racist..But Jesse James was, right? THEY BOTH ENJOYED THE SAME FRIGGEN THING, BUT JESSE IS A RACIST/NAZI, AND MICHAEL JACKSON WASNT ?

MJ defenders are such double standard idiots !

This post is uncalled for. MJ was interested in a lot of historical people and events. Fans know that, but why make casual readers of MJ stuff think something more sinister.

If you want a real juicy story, post info about his old girlfriend - the young Arab woman - from the late 80s/early 90s. That's an amazing, beautiful love story! And not a lot of people know about it.

One of our cable stations (History channel, I think) shows WWII programs all the time. They will take entire days days and show nothing but programs on the Nazi's. He probably wanted to see Judy Garland dance and was probably trying to get self-help thru those other programs on child abuse. I like to watch Agatha Christie murder mysteries, the Olympics and just about any info-mercial out there - especially the Bullet Express and the G3 sweeper. Go figure.

OMG can't u do better then this!

I think I can answer this:
Michael believed as did Hitler that the furture of the world LIES WITH OUR CHILDREN (in hitler's mind Hate, domination of, or control)
In MJ's interpretation lies with teaching our Children love and acceptance of all, which would be reflected in his music and words.

My brother (may he rest in peace, also studied Hitler tons of movies and press releases)...

So just because he did that.... does it mean something...No He always said U MUST KNOW HISTORY OR U R DOOMED TO REPEAT IT.

Sometimes it's a good thing to learn about bad people. By pretending Hitler didn't exist, or understanding where he came from and how he became so powerful, is to allow the same thing to happen again. History only repeats itself as long as people remain clueless about the past.

wow    

The man was most likely a history buff. Who cares what movies he liked? I know quite a few people who watch all the Hitler do***entaries and movies and they're not racist. Personally, it's not my cup of tea but they do give great insight into human nature and evil charismatic leaders.

Is this supposed to be surprising? Come onnn... He wanted to give that wanking chimp Bubbles vocal chords. This Hitler facination is nothing. Now if you find out he wanted Bubbles to speak like Hitler using the German accent THEN that would be 'news'.
