Adolf Hitler was not the most evil German in History.
justin.graves

Con

Yes he was.
Debate Round No. 1
California80

Pro

He cannot possibly be the most evil German in history. Adolf Hitler was Austrian.
justin.graves

Con

He was not German by race, but German by nationality. I am English, Welsh, and French by race, but American by nationality. Same for Hitler. Hitler killed millions and caused WWII and started the Holocaust.

Hitler was bad. And German by nationality.

From Con's source: "The eight-year-old Hitler took singing lessons, sang in the church choir, and even considered becoming a priest.[19] In 1898 the family returned permanently to Leonding. The death of his younger brother, Edmund, from measles on 2 February 1900"

It'd have been nice if he'd stayed religious. Instead measles stuck.

Reasons for voting decision: Con does not explain why nationality must be the appropriate interpretation of "German". He also ignores how "Austrian" isn't a race. It's a nationality as well. On the basis of place of birth, Pro is right.

Reasons for voting decision: Trap debates don't always end so well... Had pro cited a True Scotsman (err, I mean German), I'd probably rule in his favor; but having only Hitler to compare to Hitler, there is no one more German or evil to compare against. Yet there is a common trend in evil bastard dictators technically being born in other counties than the ones they rule. (sources tied due to a single wiki source, not tipping the scales by enough)
