MORONS are quick to compare all sorts of things to Nazi Germany, the one period of history they have cursory knowledge of. Here’s what they think is similar to the Third Reich.
Consequences of actions
So, you’ve just been fired from your job because you acted in a really unprofessional way. Is that because you live in an authoritarian regime or because bad actions deserve punishment? It’s the latter, because in an actual dictatorship you’d have been shot.
According to nutters, seatbelts are just one of many examples of the authoritarian state creeping into our everyday lives. From their point of view democracy means the freedom to be flung through the windscreen of your car. Also, evil though he was, it’s unlikely Hitler was in favour of road accidents.
Any sort of censorship
Cretins are always passionate advocates of free speech, by which they mean the right to share bigoted opinions without censure. However, when you use your own free speech to tell them to stop talking shit, they’ll call you a ‘woke Nazi’ or some other combination of hysterical terms that don’t make sense.
Having a platform to do stuff like share your bigoted views sounds curiously Nazi-like. However, nutjobs think that social media companies deciding to remove those people is actually the Nazi-like thing going on here. They’ll claim it’s the start of a slippery slope, but they also think ‘liberal fascism’ is a thing, so it’s probably safe to ignore them.
Bellends love to point out that Nazi is short for National Socialist, implying this means that left-leaning Guardian readers are basically Himmler in Crocs. However, despite the name, everyone knows the Nazis would have got along famously with your average Daily Mail reader.
