5. They have such a fetish for playing the victim, and there's no better victim.

 

That's my guess. Gotta be as over the top as possible.

9. The reichwing philosophy is "once more for luck"

 

rather than "never again" though this time it will be poor folks and non-white folks on the receiving end, not the Jewish people. They do loves them some Hitler.

10. They're dumb

My personal favorite is the bit about the gun ban. They love to cite that he banned guns sometime in the mid 30s (no idea if it's true). The underlying assumption is that somehow a bunch of German rednecks, excuse me patriots, could have managed to defeat one of the most formidable armies in history. It took millions of casualties, billions of dollars, and years of effort to finally defeat the Wehrmacht, but they figure they could have done it in an afternoon. Ok!

15. It's not working like it used to, so they are trying to compensate by repetition.

And you have to remember most of them know diddly squat about history.
