It's been a dark week, I understand that, but seriously, cheer up. We are a rich country with enormous freedoms. We are one of the most tolerant societies in the world, and while it is important to push back against all forms of bigotry, claiming it to be 1933 in Germany is ridiculous, dangerous and self-fulfilling.

Stand against all bigotry and stop polarising the topic further by equating 3 teenage pricks on a bus with krystallnacht.

Comparing anything to Nazism has really got tired. All sides of the political spectrum do it, to the point it's almost meaningless, and it's almost always just a way of trying to stir things up.

Please, tell me why you're happy, I'm sick of all the negativity.

Yes, you know it's the end of the conversation when someone compares something to Hitler.

These are uncertain times, I get the concern, but a little perspective would be nice. As you said, this type of speech only serves to stir things up further.

If people really care about post-Brexit racism they should stop equating individual incidents with 1930's Germany. We need to stop, not ad to the polarising rhetoric.

For ages we've been hearing rhetoric about how the EU is like Nazi Germany or EUSSR etc, even in the campaign, Boris said the EU wanted to do what Hitler did and get a superstate.

Boris might be one of the silver linings here, he seems to have utterly ruined what little reputation he had.

Anyone making Nazi comparisons in such a way have proved themselves unworthy of power.

It doesn't mean we shouldn't try and make that ride as smooth as possible. Otherwise we are just engaging in "Go back to bed America ...."

A dark week for us all I would say. Certainly regarding the campaigns and conversations we are having in their wake.

It might help if you highlighted an opinion, who said it and what your problem is with it.
