Answering the question of how people can be convinced to not vote for the "far right", this answer states some reasons why voting for the far right is not very good:
The far-right have a long history of (1) not being elected, and worse, (2) not delivering any of their program once they get some representation. If you really want it, you can stress these two points.
At some point I read this and I happened to see a problem with this answer, and a possible improvement. So I made this comment:
(1) is irrelevant. But I'll add (3) putting millions of Jews in gas chambers. Actually that might be the most well-known thing they have ever done.
This is factual. The fact that a party does not win is not generally a reason to avoid voting for it. And the far right did commit a very famous genocide in the past, which is a very good reason to avoid voting for it, much stronger than "it won't win".
This comment was removed by a moderator, and cited as one reason for a 7-day site-wide ban. Explanation:
Calling out the crimes of the Nazis is not in itself a Code of Conduct violation. However, bringing up the Nazis in a question about the far right more generally and tying the Nazis to contemporary politics in this way is uncalled for.
Question: Is this correct? Is it appropriate that linking the Nazis to the far right movement is a Code of Conduct violation?
