Sorry, but I don’t think that anyone should tweet about the Holocaust

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — furtherglory @ 12:50 pm

This morning I was horrified to read that someone had tweeted about the Holocaust. What a revolting development this is!

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

TA – A Twitter account associated with Anthony Scaramucci, the colorful investor who was briefly President Donald Trump’s communications director, reposted a survey about the number of Jews murdered in the Holocaust, saying it was an educational exercise.

The original tweet posted on the Scaramucci Post account Oct. 17 asked, “How many Jews were killed in the Holocaust?” and offered multiple choices: “Less than one million, between 1-2 million, between 2-3 million, more than 5 million.” The historical figure, 6 million, was not offered. That tweet drew widespread outrage and was withdrawn hours later.

A screen capture showed that within an hour of posting, 4,776 people had responded, with 68 percent answering more than 5 million, 21 percent saying less than 1 million and the rest split between the other two options.

The Twitter feed is run by Lance Laifer, the founder of several capital management firms, as is Scaramucci. Laifer said on the Scaramucci Post feed that he is Jewish, in defending his posting of the poll and other tweets related to the Holocaust.

End quote

Excuse me! I don’t think that anyone should be tweeting or twittering about the Holocaust, which is a sacred subject.

I have visited most of the former camps, and I have spoken to Holocaust survivors. I have a website that is almost entirely devoted to the Holocaust:

Holocaust Museums and Memorial Sites:

Anne Frank House

Belzec Memorial Site

Bergen-Belsen Memorial Site

Bergen-Belsen Museum

Buchenwald Museum and Art Gallery

  1. I’ll go one better. I don’t think anyone should have to listen to part of Anne Frank’s diary being read out loud before a sporting event . Even if it is a bunch of French pussies playing soccer.

  2. It is utterly disgusting. People should not be allowed to debate the Holocaust.

    I agree with you.
    I think people should concentrate their efforts into Tweeting about the Holohoax.

    It would be a much brighter world if everyone Tweeted about the Holohoax.
