Unless the discussion is solely about the Nazis, Hitler or the Third Reich, then I say yes.

Not if, y'know, it's an actual possibility of a rise in far right-wing fascism and all in the actual real world. For example, the German Parliament things not looking that great, and Godwin's Law looking a bit pathetic (even if there are elements of truth in it) when media DOESN'T discuss relevant issues and grill politicians with agendas.

Cos, of course, right-wing fanatics aren't murdering MP's, pushing WW2 Nazis as great guys, pushing racism in the US of A, and spreading lies through the internet.

Now, some may not think that is likely to happen. It's the "putting your head in the sand" syndrome.

Now, if we are talking about unrelated trivia, say, a new Lady Gaga album and someone says anyone who doesn't like it is a fascist or Hitler, then yes, by all means.

And, of course, in a democracy, anyone can talk about whatever they want to. Say, for example, expressing opinions on politicians and Brexit, the single-most important issue facing the UK. Unless you are members of the split Labour Party or the split Tory Party, of course....

"Shhh, don't mention the Brexit! I may have mentioned it once but I think I got away with it."

The meaning of the original post is unclear.

Do you mean banning for 'mentioning the nazis', or for 'complaining about mentioning the Nazis'?

Is this the so-called liberal 'tolerance' - going so far as to ban analogies, even ones not intended to be taken seriously?
