What If the Confederacy Had Won the Civil War?

HBO and the creators of The Game of Thrones TV series are under attack because they are planning to produce a series on this.  An essay in The Washington Post summarizes the case against this.  Here’s a link to it:

I do not understand the uproar.  Amazon has a highly rated and critically acclaimed series on what if the Axis powers had won World War II.  The TV series is called “The Man in the High Tower.”  In it, Hitler was still alive and had some scenes in the show.  Moreover, this series has been on since 2015. 

While the Confederates were evil (slavery), weren’t the Nazis at least as bad?  Why does one series get condemned and the other acclaimed?  I don’t understand.
