An English newspaper, the Eastern Daily Press, has referred to Nazi Germany as "Nazi occupied Germany." Link to the article here.
George Orwell must be turning in his grave. It gets better and better.
Yes, I have noticed this. I began to notice the expression "Nazi Poland", which of course used to be "Nazi occupied Poland". Where did that "occupied" go, I wondered to myself.And then, voila! it turned up: What used to be "Nazi Germany" is now "Nazi occupied Germany".... which has underlined my worry that, just as Poland is being moved to the Axis Side, Germany is being moved out, and is going to end up on the Allied Side.I suspect the only way this might change is if the crimes of Stalin ever come to have any political weight. Then I guess Poland will find itself catapulted back to the Allied Side at the speed of light.Though please never forget the real hope, the wonderful change soon coming on the earth when the loving, impartial, Kingdom of God, the heavenly government, is ruling over us.
