IKEA Founder Found To Be Ex-Nazi Party Member and Supporter - September 18, 2011, 08:09 PM

Looks as if he's trying to wash the blood off his hands with $1B in charitable donations.

=======================

IKEA founder pledges £1bn to charity following Nazi past revelations



IKEA’s billionaire founder Ingvar Kamprad has pledged £1bn to charity in a move which follows revelations about his Nazi past.


The 85-year-old businessman has instructed the IKEA foundation, which has owned the company since 1982, to more than double its charitable spending to close to £100m a year.

Around £40m will go to the Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya, split over three years, with the rest shared between UN agencies such as UNICEF, UNHCR and UNDP, and Save the Children, to which the foundation is already the largest corporate donor.

“We will donate 1bn Kr per year (£95.7m),” Per Heggenes, Mr Kamprad’s press spokesman, told Sweden’s Expressen newspaper. “There’s been a strong will from Ingvar to do more things for more people by setting a more ambitious goal for the foundation.”

The move follows last month’s revelations that Mr Kamprad at the age of 17 had been an active recruiter and a registered member of the Svensk Socialistisk Samling (SSS), the successor to the Swedish Nazi party.

Mr Kamprad’s youthful Far Right sympathies first came to light in 1994, with the posthumous publication of the letters of Per Engdhal, the leader of the Far Right New Swedish movement of the 1950s, which detailed the friendship and financial support he had enjoyed from Mr Kamprad.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

- Nicolo Machiavelli 1469-1527

Yeah he's paying up. Not all German's were Nazis and not all Nazis liked Hitler. Hell most of them would have probably killed him given the chance. Now if they can prove he did some facked up shit then its a different story.

It seems like every older German worth talking about was involved with the Nazi's some way, so I don't care about this. I mean watch us 50 years from now be attacked by the media for being apart of the Republican or Democratic party because of something they did

what blood on his hands? I don't care for his political leanings but he wasn't an SS officer, he was a 17 year old kid who got wrapped up in nationalistic politics.

Confusing the issue, since before you were ugly.

My grandfather was in the same party. They did a lot for the community. Once the war broke out and Hitler got all squirrelly... my grandfather emmigrated to the United States and enlisted. Though he desperately wanted to fight in the European Theater against the Nazi's, he was stationed in the Pacific. The US Army thought it to be a conflict that he had family still in the Nazi Party and would be fighting directly against them. True story.

As far as the Ikea guy... I believe he was directly involved. Rumor has it that the gas chambers came neatly packaged in ready to assemble pre-cut pieces, and included the tools needed to assemble them. Dead give away!

if that was the case, by the time the SS got them together it would have been 1952.

It wouldn't have mattered anyway, because each of them would be missing a nut or two bolts and they wouldn't have been able to assemble them anyway.

my whole kitchen is ikea cabinetry. It took me 3 weeks of "me" time in the garage putting that shit together.

If the gas chambers were Ikea, the doors wouldn't shut right, the floor casters would require someone with 2 wrists on each arm to adjust, and they would have just given up after a month of adjusting, and listening to their wives bitch.

A small part of me hopes the current administration finds out Sweden has been harboring remnants of the taliban. I'll enlist.
