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.”

  • I don’t have conversations about the new Nazis because I can think of more important and non-imaginary things to talk about.

    If it’s not climate change deniers or Christian fundamentalists, it’s the Russians (this time it’s the left’s Red Scare) and alt-right neo-Nazis that are the bogey-men distracting people from real issues.

      Lefties are just like druggies, it’s always someone else’s fault.

    Apparently, the NYTimes thinks there are 662 million Nazis in America (# of Trump voters).

    “It has also brought us to the point at which there can be earnest argument over whether we should consider a sitting president a Nazi sympathizer.”

    Uhhh yeahhhh dude!

    That kitty scares me. I mean look at the position of the right arm and look at that black patch below the nose. I want my puppy, my blankie and my coloring book.

      As long as you take them on the kitty train to ‘resettlement in the East’. Oh, your puppy will have to stay at home, but a nice cat lady will be taking care of your house and puppy until you return. Someday.
