"The Boys" could be significantly better if Stan Edgar, the CEO of Vought International was a Jew. Looking and acting more like Harvey Weinstein.

-1 from dumb political correctness
+10 to realistic social satire

Otherwise, there are many good things to say about season 2. Females fighting (3 against 1) was a fun highlight of the finale. Just like real schoolgirls.

Nazi references left me ambivalent. Almost good, not subversive enough. Surely, Nazis were not that preoccupied with N...s. There were other juicy agendas.
Race mixing was one such a Nazi agenda that marked their difference from other Socialists and Communists. Nazis believed that race-mixing is bad (see Rehoboth Basters) and opposite of eugenics, i.e. dysgenic practice.
But otherwise, the N..s were useful.
The Nazi mythology was not about white skin as such, but about the Aryan race, its preservation and prosperity. This is why Jews, although quite often white-skinned and even blue-eyed were much of a serious problem. Jews brought in corruption to Aryans at every level, from physical to metaphysical. Jewish question sadly it is not reflected in any way in this series. Too difficult to tackle, too delicate, nuanced, and scary I suppose. Separating Jews from Whites is difficult in the current political environment.
Also, Slavs were almost as inferior as Jews and certainly did not belong to the Aryan race (although Rosenberg may have somewhat divergent opinion from Goebbels and Himmler on that matter), no matter how white they were. This could also be played with, but it is outside of the politically correct narrative.
