My boss is of Jewish origin, his parents emigrating from Germany and Poland. He lost relatives in Auschwitz. He is a phenomenally loyal NHS Doctor. Earlier in the year he said that the language being used by media and politicians is eerily resembling 1920-30s Germany and the rise of the Nazi party. I wasn’t paying too much attention, but I valued his statement as he is a remarkable observationalist .
He was right, this style of rhetoric and the undercurrent behind the statements echoes Das Reich and Das Shwarze Korps. I’ve never employed Godwin’s law before – but we are veering on the abyss which leads to National Socialism.
