(1) The epithet “Nazi” is reasonably applied to:
a) A media employer who fires a journalist for making derogatory generalizations about the members of a religious minority.
b) A media employee who alleges that left of center politics is secretly controlled by a nefarious Jewish plutocrat?
c) Both (a) & (b)
d) Neither (a) nor (b)
The correct answer is “d”. “Nazi” is a colloquial expression referring to a member of the National Socialist German Workers Party, abbreviating “National Socialist.” The Nazis controlled Germany from 1933 to 1945, during which time they established a totalitarian government, initiated a world war, and caused the deaths of dozens of millions of people. The United States was at war with Nazi Germany from 1941 to 1945.
