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.

Michael Jackson was a wonderful and beautiful human being who was a student of life. If anyone was a real MJ fan they'd know he studied EERYTHING and everyone especially those who gained any kind of power.

Michael spoke of Hitler and how evil he was but he was also curious as to how on earth did such evil manage to get people to go along with it.

I'll throw a bone to MJ haters: think about it.
Hitler killed cute little Jewish kids. MJ loved kids. You cannot possibly think that MJ would have supported that even in your deepest hatred for the man.

Michael loved people, and said so many times. But he was no fool and he knew that as much as he preached loved there were forces out there who were just as preachy about hatred.

I think he may have wanted to learn if their hearts could be turned around. Call it corny, crazy or whatever, but MJ believed that love was the root of everything {not sexual}and that with love the world would be a much better place.

Michael Jackson was a racist / Nazi just like any other person who collects Nazi memorabilia. This according to all the posters who posted the hate spewed towards Jesse James.

Give me a friggen break. Everyone was so fast to convict Jesse James, and Michael Jacksons love for Hitler inspired movies is history, yet Jesse James collection of it was not ?

You people here are so double friggen standard it's sickening !!!

Leave Michael alone ? F*** that !! Sorry, he's fair game in death just as anyone else !

You people who defend a pedophile, and a man who hated his own skin color that he became a white man, and now you see what a racist he was against his own kind ! The man collected / watched Nazi memorabilia and movies, therefore he was a racist / nazi himself.

You are the same people who convicted Jesse James for the same damn thing. Why is Michael Jackson off limits ??!!

I am irritated with myself for opening this site---

Hey TMZ, have you heard the recent story of Shirley Sherrod
and the dicing and slicing of news output that totally
misrepresented the woman? Is there just a smidgeon of
self recognition in that?

Oh, and there was a wonderful movie a few years ago,
Schindler's List, that millions of ordinary Americans paid
to see. I know you are aware of Michael's formidable library
of books, film and do***entaries. It is widely known that he
was a student of history, art, movies, literature, astrology
and much more. Of course, he would want to know about the
Holocaust--how disingenuous of you to insinuate other motivation.

I have to learn not to visit your site again. Still making
dollars off Michael--but not mine any longer. Tabloid trash.

Who's to say we are the same people? I know for sure that I am not one of them. Never even commented on a Jesse story nor care too. How can you say that the people are the same? Jees.

BS
I read a lot of True Crime books. I have a special interest in serial killers.
I can assure you, I am not a criminal nor am I a serial killer. I am just interested in finding out WHAT evil is.
I am sure the same goes for Michael Jackson paired with the fact that some of those Nazi propaganda movies are of a very high quality and I suspect that all film makers and film lovers have watched some of those movies. Think Leni Riefensthal - brilliant award winning movies - BUT Nazi propaganda.

Michael liked uniforms, but you never saw him in a Nazi uniform even though they have the best design of all uniforms (Some of which were designed and produced by Hugo Boss.)

#70 - The man changed his skin color to become a white man.
That in and of itself says everything we need to know about Michael Jackson. He was a racist and a nazi ! This just confirms it, that's all !

UNLIKE your staff TMZ, Jackson was a very cultivated person and obviously just wanted to study a man that marked the History of the world, (even if he was evil, he was e genius ORATOR) and that is very intresting, i myself like to study Hitler, and i HATE him, studying him does in NO way mean you like nazism!! OPEN YOUR MINDS AND STOP TRYING TO START BS, GET A FAWKIN LUFE TMZ.

as for "TV specials and dramas depicting troubled boys in dysfunctional families. " DUUUh just look at how he gew up, of course he must have had a troubled childhood and relates to these charracters.

its so incredible to me how he continues to make headlines from beyond the grave (even more then some ALIVE celeb)and how disturbing people try to dig up dirt tp write about him, if you cant respect a person in death then what the HECK ARE YOU?? after all the amazing giidness he has brought to this world, his charities? his inpiring journey? his incredible genius?? the love he spread in this world? bringing a little child from the most reclused corners of teh world to listen to the same music as a child in america? **** YOU USA LEAVE MICHAEL JACKSON THE **** ALOOOOOONE GEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZ ENOUGH IS ENOUGH DAMN IT.

#75 - But if you found out Jesse James, or Mel Gibson were also history buffs (which they are) and watched these same movies, you would be all over them like white on rice, to say they are racists and nazis. Correct ? That's what I thought !

You people have blinders one !

People turned on Jesse for cheating on his wife, you can't get that? No one has convicted him of anything I didn't hear about a trial taking place.

#79 - Nope. He is fair game just as any other celebrity.

The truth hurts, doesnt it ?

How pathetic are YOU, TMZ, for posting such a ridiculous story! Are you having a really slow news week or what!? Please quit bashing this sweet, wonderful soul.
