You only examined the argument about Nazi Germany.
You ignored the attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and Dresden.
You ignored the Wounded Knee massacre.
and you did claim there was a Muslim ban (you literally wrote "Trump's Muslim ban" in your first response to me ).
Yes, I did write that, and if I had written “There was a” before that, you would be correct about my claim.
Now, Trump proposed a Muslim ban.
There was widespread acceptance of it.
This indicates widespread Islamophobia.
There's no targeting of civilians,
Shock and awe campaigns are indiscriminate. They are meant to create widespread destruction, and becuase of this, it is impossible to avoid killing civilians. So, civilians are deliberately killed when US forces decide to engage in these.
there's no war against Muslims,
Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Libya, Palestine, Lebanon.
there's no support for genocide, and it's not easy to get majorities to support any of it.
White man’s burden is an example of a widepsread rationalisation for imperialism and colonialism which involved genocide. So yes, there are examples in recent western history of support for genocide.
Again, western wars and military operations would look very different if your claims were true.

Meanwhile, one NZ publishing house no longer sells Jordan Peterson's book 12 Rules for Life because it believes it would be wrong to support the author in light of the Christchurch attack. They are getting lots of attention for this decision, which is no doubt their objective, and the terrorist also gets what he wants.
The killer wanted JP’s book banned?
And more about what's really important: Christchurch terror attack: Corrections denies only white guards watching alleged gunman
Why would anyone claim he was only being watched by white guards?
