Not really. Some pretentious fool made what he thinks is art.

No really, Cattelan is near to the extreme xenophobic right politically, so yes it could be interpreted that way too ...

It's simple really, a discussion has to be sufficiently long to be considered an argument first, and then the probability of comparison of Nazi or Hitler approaches 1.

Exactly. So any discussion starting with Hitler / Nazis / etc., is immune from Godwin.

Is long enough now? How do you define long? (1-2-4-8-16-32-64-128 bits?)

Not long enough. Someone will be here shortly to explain to you in detail, what is long enough. And then he'll have an argument with you.

No. The topic is Hitler / Nazis, so there can be no Godwin. Thankfully, since it is rather ignorant.
