I think that the black population of the USA has been accommodating beyond reason. If it were me in that situation, I'd have burned the country down a long time ago.

Another article that picks a niche subculture to project onto. "Oh, those *weirdos* over there have a Nazi problem" as a way to deflect from the far more uncomfortable idea that the entire society has a Nazi problem.

The tone of the article is, “even those relatively wholesome weirdos over there have a Nazi problem”. It goes on to say that society as a whole has a Nazi problem.

Very last line of the article:
“The fandom has to recognize that it doesn’t exist purely within the vacuum of an online fantasy,” Acesential said. “It exists in a world where these problems are still here.”

Its almost like they didn't read the article.

I'll admit, my eyes started to glaze over after paragraphs of the author conflating one imageboard's userbase with an entire community.

Perhaps it's Nazi society that has a Pony problem.

Perspective is everything.

You say that, but what what about the poor Fahnenjunker who wants to send out his Obersoldat to daub racist messages on cars in excrement, but can't because they're watching children's cartoons? Won't somebody think of the Offizieranwärter?

Not brownies, it's Brown Shirts.
