Just as there are certified victim groups presumed to exude collective virtue, so there are certified pariah groups presumed uniquely monstrous and therefore saddled with collective guilt. The Germans--forever accursed for starting two world wars, never mind they didn't--fall into the latter category.

Much like 1984’s Emmanuel Goldstein, the Teutonic tribes have served as perennial objects of the bien-pensants’ two-minute hate. A respectable citizen may defame them in polite company with impunity. No public shaming or demands for re-education will ensue.
