Stereotypes. There is humor there. I disagree with people, but that doesn't mean I hate them. Hopefully they feel the same. Joking about the stereotypes diffuses our....disagreements.

trust me, the RAF strategic bombing of Germany was indeed holocaust, I had several exams at uni on the matter. In 1940 Winston Churchill said: “You must understand, that this war is not against Hitler or National Socialism, but against the strength of the German people, which is to be smashed once and for all, regardless whether it is in the hands of Hitler or a Jesuit priest.”
If that isn't racial hatred..

The nukes in Japan were a mixed matter of racial hatred and political interest: the Americans invested shedloads of money on the Manhattan Project and needed to show the Russians who had the bigger stick by the end of the war..
