Hitler is generally considered to have been quite evil, but was actually knowingly evil, or just delusional and powerful?
Racists genuinely think those they despise have lesser interests, if you're racist it's perfectly rational to be discrimantory. That doesn't make it right, but it does mean the racist might be doing what they think is right.
(If you feel inclined to do so, before commenting on my use of it, google the origins of the word chauvinism.)

He believed he could make his country great again. He had hope to change the world for the better. To him the death toll didn't matter so long as the mission was accomplished. Killing every Jew, homosexual, communist, Roma, etc. would be a nesassary sacrifice in his mind. Imagine if you thought you could make the world better, the species stronger, even step up closer to god status if you got rid of a certain type of person. If you were crazy enough you would leap at the chance to do so.
What he did was sick, and wrong, and a prime example of the evil that plagues humanity. However, in his twisted, insane mind he thought it was all for the best.0
