This sounds pretty terrifying.

Reactionary modernism - Wikipedia
Reactionary modernism is a term first coined by Jeffrey Herf in his 1984 book, Reactionary Modernism: Technology, Culture and Politics in Weimar and the Third Reich, to describe the mixture of "great enthusiasm for modern technology with a rejection of the Enlightenment and the values and institutions of liberal democracy" which was characteristic of the German Conservative Revolutionary movement and Nazism.

Can Americans Stop a Demagogue? - The American Prospect
Roberts-Miller: They become reality when the person making them has power. So people can engage in that kind of refusal to be accountable in the way that people troll on the internet. And if, people make a certain kind of argument on the Internet and if they get called on it, they’ll say, I was just making a joke, you can’t take a joke? But they’re just some jerk on the Internet as opposed to someone who has the authority to make these sorts of things happen. You know, Huey Long was famous for that kind of thing. For instance, Theodore Bilbo was as well, Joe McCarthy continually backed off of his claims.

Roberts-Miller: It’s a kind where you don’t know if they’re kidding or not. I’m kind of fascinated by the way that humor works in demagoguery because for one thing, as I said, it gives, it enables people to be unaccountable. I crawl around dark corners on the internet and argue with jerks and they do that all the time, you know, and the second that they get called out and you, and you prove that beyond reasonable doubt, they are completely and totally fabricating information, that’s when they’ll say jokes on you. I was kidding. But the, so it’s always a kick-down humor.

The humor is always jokes on you. That’s what Hitler did. If you listen to some of his speeches, the audience is laughing. And one of the most famous is a 1939 speech about Roosevelt, in response to Roosevelt’s attempt to bring peace and to find some way to kind of resolve things.

The audience is laughing the whole time and it’s completely that kind of satire. With Hitler he said very clearly, very early on in “Mein Kampf” exactly what he was going to do. And people didn’t take it seriously because they thought it was that kind of hyperbole in which he often engaged. And hyperbole has also a way of evading, enabling you to evade any kind of accountability.
