Even a video game’s ‘Make America Nazi-free Again’ slogan ticked some people off – Chicago Tribune

Being anti-Nazi has typically been a pretty safe bet.

For movies and video games, sweeping an entire demographic of people into archetypal villain roles is fraught with politically incorrect peril. Ask any Native American who rolls his eyes at the portrayal of shirtless, murderous Indians in westerns or an Arab American who balks at Middle-eastern terrorists on the silver screen.

But since the fall of Adolf Hitler’s regime, Nazis have been universally regarded as, well, evil. They’ve been fair game as wicked antagonists.

Until, apparently, now.
