NY Times Asks: Are Many of Our Fellow Citizens ‘Nazis?’

Late last week in The New York Times, Sasha Chapin, author of the forthcoming book The Perfect Information Game, posed the question “Are Many of Our Fellow Citizens ‘Nazis’?

“One morning in mid-August,” Chapin began, “Americans woke up in what felt, to some, like an altered country… [The rally in Charlottesville] confronted America with an unlikely question: Was it possible the nation was seeing a burgeoning political faction of actual Nazis?”

“This is one of the most remarkable results of the alt-right’s emergence into the national dialogue,” wrote Chapin. “Talking seriously about Nazis is part of the new normal.”
