Why are nazis such pests?

Well, they did a bunch of really bad, funky weird shit that wasn't entirely understood. It's easy to make conspiracy theories about them, especially when it comes to the occult and supposed ufo stuff they were interested in. They're great for story fodder!!

Unfortunately, due to FurAffinity's new content policies (yes, the huge furry art site, I've been active there since 2011, despite not personally being a fury), I can no longer upload my comic there because.. NUTZIS regardless of context.
While I admit that NUTZIS aren't a center point character/group, they are an important background factor especially in a comic with primarily Jewish characters in a post WWII Europe.
I, by my own admission, did a terrible job at establishing the time frame in which the story is currently occurring (a week before Passover 2016) and the context of the more recent political, religious, racial and ethnic group issues and rise of antisemitism in France over the past decade.
Taking into consideration that Napoleon was one of the few European leaders to emancipate Jewish citizens, the history of Alsace Jews and France having one of the largest populations of ethnic and religious Jews in post-war Europe, these are important circumstances that are currently background issues within the comic.

As the story moves along, I will so my best to make those factors and their influence on the characters become more clear.

Fancy the furry community discriminating against free speech and censoring their site :/ Kinda...hypocritical isn't it?

Okay, I shouldn't say it's the whole community, that's not fair. The platform.

At any rate, I can understand hate speech being an issue, but for f*cks sake, our society has issues with context. Just because something is referenced, doesn't mean it's being lauded and supported. I hate how obtuse most public spheres are...if you have to think about something, it's gotta be censored.

But then, I remember that white supremacists are still thriving and enjoying a revival. Humans make me depressed and sad...

Whelp, time to dive into some escapism and stop thinking :D

I think it's more so that they have to appeal to a loud part of their userbase's demand, but are too lazy/understaffed to moderate things based on context.
It sucks, but ultimately it'll end up hopefully getting more people looking at the site instead of mirrors. :\ Ah well.

At least there's a silver lining...
