Discovered that was the case when creating my third account I received the ban message a couple of hours later. No comments were made. I went to confirm this by creating a fourth account, turning on my VPN, and nothing happens for an entire day. Turned it off, started browsing, and then 30 minutes later received the ban message.

If you oppose interventionism when citing examples like WW1 or past wars, you're called a nazi and fascist and silenced (even though nazis didn't even exist until the 1920s) and the situation is immediately compared to Neville Chamberlain and "peace in our time appeasement" that preceded WW2.
"We fought the nazis and we'll do it again" becomes the rallying cry from American liberals for engaging in restriction of civil liberties and a civilian economy: except for the fact, that Russians did more. The war against Nazi Germany and the Axis powers wouldn't have been won without Soviet Russia communists.
War is said to be worth it if it's for a moral cause, and anyone someone in the west wants to wage war against is compared to Hitler and you are said to be Hitler and tolerating genocide if you disagree, end of conversation, no room for nuance.
Tuskegee Airman are held up as an example of how WW2 allowed more people to be empowered, even though the civil rights movement for black people in America didn't occur until the 1960s and segregation was still in place. Obsession with black people and minorities in military positions being an example of war being worth it are something often cited from WW2 to justify sending men to war.
WW2 is frequently evoked as a rationalization for big government spending and welfare, as well as intervention and continued foreign aid and alliances despite knowing the risks of brinkmanship.

The photograph of the soldier kissing a woman along with the post war boom being prominent in people's minds glorified war and the fruits/spoils of war, along with the idea that one sure way to boost birth rates and the economy is through war. The crippled and maimed men that were more prominent after WW1 are completely forgotten, it's portrayed as if men didn't really suffer at all in war because of WW2 and post WW2 'heroism' propaganda.
Industrial production during the war helped lead to inventions that freed women from having to do household chores, allowed them to replace men's jobs in factories and made them feel like they were better than men, which helped lead to the seeds of second wave feminism.
Anti-feminists in America are always incorrectly portrayed as wanting to live in the post WW2 1940s and 1950s and WW2 era comics are always used to mockingly strawman them.
The tradwife meme and perception of women being good and submissive housewives if they are treated well by men is largely because of post WW2 wives welcoming allied soldiers that survived back to America and pretending they weren't enjoying men dying in Europe.
And because of WW2 we now see the same justifications for western governments arming the government of Ukraine incessantly and bringing things closer to a large scale war: muh Putler
