Donald Trump's dance with the devil: Did the White House mean to wink at Holocaust deniers?

Donald Trump and Debora Lipstadt

A recent news article, which quotes Debora Lipstadt, hints that The Donald might be a Holocaust denier. Or maybe he is just ignorant about the Holocaust, in spite of the fact that his son-in-law Jared Kushner is Jewish.

The following quote is from the news article, cited above:

Begin quote

President Donald Trump has barely been in office for a week and already he’s being accused, by prominent and credible people, of aiding and abetting Holocaust denial. Both Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., and conservative commentator John Podhoretz have gone public with such criticisms.

This outcry resulted from the White House statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day, which  omitted any mention that the Holocaust was an effort to get rid of the Jewish population of Europe. All previous presidents had made mention of the fact that while many non-Jewish people were killed in Nazi Germany’s concentration camps, the machinery of the Holocaust was created and effectively used to kill more than 60 percent of Europe’s Jewish population.

This omission is especially troubling in light of the fact that Holocaust denialism — which is about either outright denying or aggressively downplaying the Jewish genocide at the hands of the Nazis — is a common feature of the specific variety of white nationalism that’s being mainstreamed by Trump and his “alt-right” advisers, including Steve Bannon, who formerly ran Breitbart. The fact that Trump’s Holocaust statement was issued at almost the same time as his ban on refugees and immigrants from certain countries — which reminded many observers of the efforts to turn away Jewish refugees during World War II — did not help matters.

In addition, Trump is known to be fond of conspiracy theories, including overtly racist ones like the “birtherism” claim he lobbed at former president Barack Obama. Holocaust denial is the granddaddy of conspiracy theories, and many of the common tropes and strategies used by a wide range of conspiracy mongers can be traced to efforts to deny or explain away the Nazi campaign to murder Jews.

“The fact of the matter is that the Holocaust, as defined by historians, is not ‘all the bad things the Nazis did,’” explained historian Deborah Lipstadt over the phone. “The Nazis did lots and lots of bad things. But the Holocaust is the attempt to annihilate European Jewry.”

End quote

America does not have a law against Holocaust denial — yet, but Trump is setting a very bad example. It is time for him to get with the program, and honor the Jews who were killed in the Holocaust.

America should have a special day to acknowledge that Jews, who tried to escape the Nazis in Germany, were turned away when they tried to escape on the ship named the Saint Louis. The ship was forced to return to Germany where the passengers were killed by the Nazis in gas chambers. Oh, the humanity!

  1. Who cares if he’s in denial about the holo or not. Him pissing off China off is far more interesting.

    Taiwan. He’s really putting a weed up Beijing jings ass on that one. Maybe if he pisses China off with that one,they’ll make the ,”first strike”.

    Hey if that happens,we can tell the Jews,”you wanna see a real holo?” Nobody will need ovens on that one.

    • You wrote: “Him [Trump] pissing off China off is far more interesting.”

      Trump needs some advice on how to deal with Chinese people. To a Chinese person, the worst thing that can possibly happen to them is to “lose face.” Losing face means being humiliated. Trump is humiliating the Chinese and causing them to “lose face.”

      • Yes mam. Look at Shanghai. Beautiful city by night. Way the highways are lit,looks like it could be lighting in a dance club.

        Make em lose face. Trump could always blame it on his Jew boy son in law. Then with any luck,the Chinese get pissed and take it on the Jews . They could nuke the Jews . Hey any country that executes someone by firing squad,and send the family the bill for the bullet,seems like they wouldn’t think twice about nuking the Jews .

        Yeah I know,”a bill for the bullet” might be urban legend,but we’re talking about China here. Same people that have executions in stadiums.

    There was no way the influent Zionists of America would let cohorts of Jewish refugees as large as those of the ‘Schiff era’ (1880-1920) in. Zionism’s raison d’être was the stoppage of such migratory flows, regarded as bleeding Jewry’s demographic & cultural reservoir in Eastern Europe to death. The Zionists of that time indeed regarded the Jewish immigration from Eastern Europe to America as a bleeding of their people to death because numerous Jewish migrants (especially the young ones) used to drop their Jewishness (customs, traditions, endogamous marriages, etc.) as soon as they set foot on American soil. Consequently, the Zionist founders and their heirs had tasked themselves with diverting those migratory flows away from America and toward a Jewish land where the migrating Eastern Jews could live without restrictions (unlike in Czarist Russia) and without dropping their Jewishness (unlike in America, UK, France, etc.). Not rocket science to understand why no large migratory flows from Europe to America was possible with the Zionists around.

  3. Yes, Donald Trump is what Debbie Lipsticks calls a “softcore Holocaust denier” because he didn’t emphatically link the Holohoax with the legitimate ethnic cleansing of Pal…er Israel’s alleged right to exist…in a speech. But President Trump of course believes in the ‘Holocaust’ nevertheless. And one of the main reasons why he believes in the ‘Holocaust’ may be because he “is known to be fond of conspiracy theories” and the ‘Holocaust’ is a first-class conspiracy theory. The alleged conspiracy to exterminate the Jews (IMT terminology) was indeed a central piece of the prosecution case in Nuremberg after WW2. The terms “Nazi conspiracy” and “Nazi conspirators” were gimmicks at the postwar mock trials against defeated Germany. That was quite tricky and efficient since it exempted the victors from having to provide any evidence for their claims at the Nuremberg lynching party. A handful of so-called ‘confessions,’ a parade of extravagant & groundless testimonies, and some pics of the pathetic victims of an acute health disaster in a collapsing country were enough to do the job. No physical and documentary evidence required. Such evidence was non-existent by definition, since a conspiracy is essentially based on secrecy. Once the obstacle of solide evidence removed, the prosecutors’ mission of whitewashing their own country from any kind of war guilt, was a breeze…
