    Does it have subtitles for the rest of you?
    But don’t worry, there aren’t any Nazis in Germany at all. Really, we’ve defined them all out of existence.
    I guess I may may lost some “friends” (friendly acquaintances) when I called the AfD (Alternative for Germany) “alte Faschisten Deutschland” yesterday .
    I’m not sorry.

    English subtitles can be activated when you watch it directly in Youtube. They did a great job with the translation, except maybe for “Überfremdung” but that is a tricky one.

    For me subtitles show up on Firefox on Windows, have to turn on the CC button.

    Being upset about a Nazi being called a Nazi is like being upset about a social-democrat being called a social-democrat. “Nazi” is not a slur, not an insult, no dehumanization; it is a short and convenient way to describe someone’s ideas and actions.

    Of course, their ideas and actions are despicable and should have no place in a free and democratic society, but that is a different matter.

    Good one, I usually call them alternative Fakten Deutschland.

    Some AfD election posters: Reichsmark statt Euro, und zwar Europaweit! Blau ist das neue Braun

    Swedish has a newly-coined word ‘nyssnazist’ (‘recently-nazi’) to describe parties like the Sweden Democrats, one of whose founders was an ex-member of the Waffen-SS and whose leader dressed in a brown shirt (with a red armband) and black shorts when he was the same age as Greta Thunberg is now. Their deputy leader recently blogged that Jews and Sami (the first nation of Sweden and the northern regions) can’t be real Swedes because “they lack the inherited essence of Swedishness”. The ‘nyssnazister’ get really riled when I describe them as such, but when it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck … it’s a duck!
