7. Nazi Comedy

Mel Brooks once said that the only way to respond to Hitler was to make fun of him. Fair enough.

Then there was the TV show, "Hogan's Heroes" which made the Nazis look like bumbling rubes. Good sit-com comedy.

The problem with both approaches is that they took place more than 2 decades after WW II. The Nazis had been defeated and we were in the throes of the "American Century."

Comedy will not defeat Trump and his supporters. If they are defeated, and I'm not certain that they will be, the comedy can come later.
