Progressive Conformaty

So if one does not decry "racism" appropriately, and on cue, there are precedents.
Under a decree issued by Reich Minister of the Interior Wilhelm Frick on 13 July 1933 (one day before the ban on all non-Nazi parties), all German public employees were required to use the salute.[1] The decree also required the salute during the singing of the national anthem and the "Horst-Wessel-Lied".[1] It stipulated that "anyone not wishing to come under suspicion of behaving in a consciously negative fashion will therefore render the Hitler Greeting".[1] A rider to the decree, added two weeks later, stipulated that if physical disability prevented raising of the right arm, "then it is correct to carry out the Greeting with the left arm".[8] On 27 September, prison inmates were forbidden to use the salute,[32] as were Jews by 1937.[33]

By the end of 1934, special courts were established to punish those who refused to salute.[34] Offenders, such as Protestant preacher Paul Schneider, faced the possibility of being sent to a concentration camp.[34] Foreigners were not exempt from intimidation if they refused to salute.

Mere passive obedience is not enough. You must learn to love Big Brother.

While we're at it digging into history, didn't Sir Thomas Moore get executed for insufficient enthusiasm?

Try avoiding the two minutes hate and see what happens.

Sir Thomas? Not sure. I was under the impression that he refused to take an oath to the act of supremacy or something along those lines. Gotta call Paul Scofield and check.

I understand that "insufficient enthusiasm" is not a formal charge.

He was executed for being counter-revolutionary.

Indeed.

Objectively counterrevolutionary despite passive obedience.

Might even say he was a deviationist or maybe a diversionist.
