@firstname.lastname@example.org @emacsen I read the article but still don't understand. No one just wakes up one day, decides they're a Nazi and attacks a random Mosque or Synagogue.
How does this happen? How is it possible to deny the holocaust, something so obviously real? How do these people decide that their fascists, and that the "antifa's" are out to get them? How do they possibly believe in something as stupid as white supremacy and all the related unrealistic conspiracy theories?
In the US I can see it easily. People can be convinced of lies, but Germans took the holocaust in, they did the work as a nation to reflect on it and see the harm.
So now, for this to happen... I don't know, and if can happen in Germany, it can happen anywhere.
I can't tell you deeper causes.
