i think we have different perspectives on this video.
you argue that the form/genre of this video is interesting. but this
form/genre is not specific for the internet, so in my view the
form/genre does not have a particular interest for internet research. i
more argue that what is interesting for internet researchers is the
content because it is about internet politics. and at the content level
the hitler-analogy is misplaced.
it depends on how you "read" this text. personally i am interested in
how internet politics is displayed in popular media at the content
level. the form intracts here with the content level, but we cannot
ignore discussing the viability of the content level.
in any case, i appreciate that you brought up an interesting topic,
althoug we view this from completely different angles.
probably another influence here is that my cultural background is the
german-speaking world, so i tend to view all media content related to
the nazis with great care. these are important topics, and your cultural
background plays an important part in how you read such media texts.
