i’ve posted this story before but Norman Spinrad wrote a quite famous novel called The Iron Dream - it’s basically a pulp sci-fi type story but with the conceit that it was written by an alternate history hitler and it features an introductory essay by a fake academic talking about history and going on about how great the story is. you can see the wikipedia here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Iron_Dream and the storyline is pretty much an exact sci fi version of hitler’s own politics and dreams, with a clear stand-in representing jewish people who are fought by hitler’s glorious aryan nation. it is clear that the book is aimed at showing how messed up a lot of our stories of domination and triumph are and particularly how many fantasy and sci fi novels have horrifying ideas about racial politics and supermen.
"To make damn sure that even the historically naive and entirely unselfaware reader got the point, I appended a phony critical analysis of Lord of the Swastika, in which the psychopathology of Hitler’s saga was spelled out by a tendentious pedant in words of one syllable. Almost everyone got the point… And yet one review appeared in a fanzine that really gave me pause. “This is a rousing adventure story and I really enjoyed it,” the gist of it went. “Why did Spinrad have to spoil the fun with all this muck about Hitler?””
which is a pretty good summary of how even the most obvious satire will always find a happy audience among those it’s ostensibly attacking, as well as those who just don’t care
