Hindsight is always 20/20, but had the allies not taken such a ridiculously harsh stance on Germany following World War 1, Hitler would have never came about.
The government? No. However, many prominent American socialites and businessmen supported the Nazi regime. Henry Ford, Charles Lindbergh, IBM provided the system Hitler used to catalogue the Jews, and many other Americans supported Hitler in the early years building up to the war.
"I regard Henry Ford as my inspiration"- Adolf Hitler. He even gave Ford the highest award a foreigner can get in Germany.
They didn't so much side with Russia as side with her Western European allies and Australia against the Axis.

poland was also killing germans in mass numbers a little bit prior to german takeover.
it's said that the federal reserve had a big hand in funding hitler and his ss stormtroopers organization. as well as playing a part in giving hitler a relatively easy sentence for his attempt at taking over the german government in 1924 i think it was or 1926.
wow, henry ford? what the fvck is up with that? was henry ford a nazi???
bottom line is, russia and england attacked germany together. in the end, germany was split amongst anglo and communist control (east, west germany). so on literal terms. they did side with russia.

Hitler was also a great orator, if that's what you're referring to. His speeches drew people from all over Germany, even before he was elected.
He was a well known anti-semite. He published a lot of anti-Jewish literature as well. On the other hand, he was also opposed to war.
Well, they did share a common enemy after 1941. Britain was opposed to Germany from the beginning, whereas Russia was not. While in the end they did fight towards the same goal, it's obviously a little more in depth than that. Stalin approached both Roosevelt and Churchill prior to the war even beginning, offering Russian assistance in order to take out Hitler, but both were wary of his motives and turned his offer down.
