Actual nazi idealogues were rare. Those atrocities were committed by Germans for the sake of Germany. Regular Germans were pretty happy with the nazis until they ran out of countries to rob and the people they'd tried to enslave started to come after them for revenge.

Sounds more like they're trying to justify further research into seeing whether they would be able to apply concepts like swarm intelligence to communities of plants.

At the end of the day, Hitler shot himself and that lady is like 105.
