Though I interpret this differently. I don't think it mean speaking out when everyone around you cheers, but speaking out against the cheers.
I think it means we need to focus on actual debate, citing data and such, not shouting meaningless rhetoric because it makes us feel good. It means understanding a thing, not cherry picking part of it because it makes your outrage feel good.
The major Nazi opponents were the Communists. That didn't mean they were the good guys. Communists (in Soviet Russia) ended up being even more racist and killing more people than the Nazi's did. Holodomor alone killed as many Ukrainians as Hitler Jews
Trumps racism against immigrants is bad, but his detainment of immigrants (excepting his child separation policy) is not much different than Obama's, which apparently everyone was fine with.
It's clear people are not actually outraged against this racism so much as they are outraged at Trump. When this 2014 Obama-era photo was published by the AP, people didn't find it so outrageous.
Another thing the Nazis were famous for was totalitarian control and violation of freedom of speech. Those opposing Trump universally agree restricting speech is a good thing, especially by Internet platforms.
