This whole conversation has gotten pretty stupid, but based on sources I've found the ban involved a little bit more than that:

a) All writings that ridicule and belittle the state and its institutions, or that attack or question its moral foundation.

b) All writings that attack or attempt to dissolve the order of the community of the Volk and its moral foundation, specifically those against the race and biological requirements of a healthy Volk (marriage, family, etc.).

c) All writings that ridicule, belittle or besmirch the Christian religion and its institution, faith in God, or other things that are holy to the healthy sentiments of the Volk.

d) The writings of the so-called "Asphalt" literature whose characteristics are superficial witticism and a quick intellectualism. These writings may be presented with virtuoso facility, but in its relativity lacks any adherence to the values that provide the basis for the common national, moral and religious life. This literature makes no attempt to strive for these values and goals; it fancies itself in its free-floating intellectualism and thus leads to the total negation of all values and committments (Literature of intellectual Nihilism).

It might be more accurate to describe it as a ban on books that are smut, communist, or anti-German (people, institutions, or values).

Still, Dfens' original point was basically that liberals turn into censoring authoritarians when faced with shit they don't like. The association with other authoritarians was tangential and mostly irrelevant.

Mostly irrelevant? You're just saying that because I stirred the shit out of those Share Blue fuckers. If they aren't sucking Stalin's dick they're sucking Hitler's.

Mostly irrelevant to your point, yes. Not saying this is necessarily an irrelevant issue.

I think that remarkably few of the people your interact with are actually paid shills and instead just have significantly different mindsets and a different understanding of the world. Or people just take things the wrong way and get flustered.

Yes, correct, he also banned terrorist propaganda.
