The so called “Coincidence Detecto” was supposed to out Jews who were “hiding in plain sight”. But Coder Daniel Sieradsk has created the Nazi Detector, a Chrome extension that takes a database filled with Nazis and puts swastikas in front of and after their names as they appear online.
He used the nazi code, for their “Coincidence Detector” and hacked away at it until he could turn it around.
Using lists from organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League coupled with followers of major anti-semitic Twitter accounts, Sieradsk was able to populate a database of nearly 9,000 people.
“No one is accusing these Nazis of hiding their online identities — though obviously, they’re hiding their real identities because they’re cowards who don’t have the courage of their convictions.”
