For Gabriel Sohier Chaput, The Daily Storm Is a humorous publication, whose goal Make unarmed on the left. It’s ridiculous, it’s one Funny, He testified. The Daily Storm, Which is satirical Nazism, which is basically not satire. It’s like an American satirical newspaper Tea Onions. The layout is almost identical to a legitimate newspaper, but it’s in content that you can say sarcastically. Obscurity is part of the joke. For Daily StormIf there is no ambiguity, it will not work. No one talks about it. It does not shock anyone.

To the accused, the references to Nazism in his writings are nothing but exaggeration. The Nazis, the people who wanted the extermination of the Jews, he proved that this was the creation of Hollywood. There is no actual evidence for that. I have never met anyone. It’s a dark fantasy. The Holocaust is the ultimate evil, it is the sacred cow. If we want to bring down political correctness, we must touch on semitism. Do not hide anything based on emotional reactions. Every subject should be discussed openly.

For the anthropologist and researcher at the Center for Expertise and Training in Religious Fundamentalism and Radicalization (CEFIRR), Frederick Nadou, culture of humor and “meme” is a frequently used process in this field.Alt Right.

The irony is that it is a practical loophole that he can refute comments in an acceptable manner during the trial. If the reader takes it too seriously, he will be ridiculous.

The fun aspect also makes it possible to recruit young people. Subversive humor is very appealing. It’s a way of normalizing serious conversation to discourage the population.
