Hmmm...can't seem to find the word Nazi in the article. Nor would it be historically apt.

"Hysterical jerk" or "hysterical radical" or "asshole hypocrite" book burning might suit the bill better.

J.J. is dead? Why didn't I know that?

(P.S. I follow the rule that the first person in a debate to make a "nazi" comparison loses.)

The first article seems more like the Watergate burglary, just a pointless criminal act that did no good for anyone. The cover-up was much more professional that the one for Watergate.

The second article is provocative enough but it lacks the details that would more someone to outrage. I mean the topic is the disposal of people’s possessions after they have been forced out of their homes. If we are not getting outraged over the expulsion of the people then even us bibliophiles need more information about the disposition of the books for us to get upset.
