Be careful of posting anything about the Holocaust on Facebook

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: — furtherglory @ 2:09 pm

Read this before putting anything about the Holocaust on Facebook: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/british-columbia/case-against-facebook-users-anti-semitic-post-would-be-an-uphill-battle-lawyer-says/article34928630/

You may think that you have free speech in America, but that does not apply to the Holocaust.

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote:

The RCMP is reviewing a posting to a Vancouver buy-and-sell group on Facebook that made light of the Holocaust, but an expert cautions that securing charges in such cases could be difficult.

The post advertised a “Jewish bunk bed for sale” with an image of an oven, a reference to the gas chambers and crematoria used to kill Jewish people and burn their bodies during the Holocaust. The ad was posted to the group, which has nearly 50,000 members, on Thursday and had been taken down by Friday morning.

Facebook user Rory Richards reported the post to the Vancouver Police Department’s hate-crimes unit. She eventually received a response from the B.C. RCMP.

The following quote is from the response that she received:

“From our team’s perspective, this is exceptionally offensive commentary that has absolutely no place in any type of public forum, or civilized society, for that matter,” RCMP Corporal Anthony Statham wrote in an e-mail to Ms. Richards.

“Please be assured that we will be looking at the material very carefully, and reviewing all posts to determine if any criminal offences have been committed.”

End quote from news article.

Holocaust denial is against the law in 21 countries now, and will soon be agaist the law in America.

Trump pledges his support of the Jews

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 5:51 pm

The following quote is from this news article: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/04/26/trump-denounces-dangerous-anti-semitism-in-holocaust-remembrance-day-remarks.html

Begin quote

In his strongest remarks to date repudiating anti-Semitism and denouncing Holocaust deniers, President Trump on Tuesday marked Holocaust Remembrance Day by pledging – with survivors of the Nazi-led genocide looking on – that the United States would “always stand with the Jewish people.”

Trump spoke at a ceremony [today] hosted by the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum [in Washington, DC] to mark the unveiling of a new conservation and research center. The center will serve as a repository for a vast collection of artifacts by those who survived Adolf Hitler’s massacre of Jews during World War II.

Members of Congress and Holocaust survivors — whose strength and courage Trump said was an inspiration — attended the emotional event in the Rotunda, the center of the Capitol. Survivors lit candles at the end of the ceremony.

Trump said Holocaust denial is one form of “dangerous anti-Semitism that continues all around the world” and that can be seen on university campuses, in attacks on Jewish communities “or when aggressors threaten Israel with total and complete destruction.”

“This is my pledge to you: We will confront anti-Semitism,” he said. “We will stamp out prejudice, we will condemn hatred, we will bear witness and we will act. As president of the United States, I will always stand with the Jewish people and I will always stand with our great friend and partner, the state of Israel.”

End quote

Trump did not use the word Nazi in his speech, since he does not know how to pronounce this word.

People are tweeting about Majdanek

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 9:36 am

I have just learned that people on Twitter are tweeting about some of my blog posts. What a revolting development this is!

I signed up for Twitter but I have yet to complete my account. Now I have learned that people are tweeting about the Majdanek camp in the Holocaust.

I have a whole section on my scrapbookpages.com website about Majdanek:

My website is kosher — written before I became a Holocaust denier. My blog is not kosher; it is full of denial, so be cautious in quoting my blog.

Here is what you will need to know when America passes a Holocaust denial law

Filed under: Dachau, Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 8:11 am

DachauE030.jpeg

My photo of the entrance into Dachau camp

This morning, when I started my day by reading the most recent Holocaust news, I read an article which includes all the false information that you will need to know when America becomes the 21st country to pass a Holocaust denial law.

You can read the news article at http://www.edmondsun.com/news/central-th-graders-study-holocaust-survivors-son-shares-parents-story/article_4be3e71a-f30c-11e6-84b8-d3a4e27fa8d5.html

The news story begins with this quote:

For Central Middle School eighth graders, their yearly study of the “Diary of Anne Frank” was made even more real as Edmond resident Mike Korenblit visited them and shared the Holocaust through his parents’ eyes. He has written a book about his parents, Manya and Meyer Korenblit titled “Until We Meet Again: A True Story of Love and Survival in the Holocaust.”

End quote from news article

Years ago, before I became a Holocaust denier, I wrote about Manya and Meyer Korenblit on this page of my scrapbookpages.com website: https://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/DachauLiberation/LiberationDay2A.html

Begin quote from my website:

Also among the prisoners on the march [out of Dachau], who were liberated by the Americans, was Majir Korenblit, who had changed his name to Major Kornblit when he moved to Ponca City, Oklahoma in 1951. In 1983, his son Michael Korenblit co-authored a book about the Holocaust experience of his father and his mother, Mania, who changed her name to Manya after the war. The book is entitled “Until We Meet Again: A True Story of Love and War, Separation and Reunion.”

After the Nazis had conquered Poland in September 1939, Majir Korenblit and his teen-aged sweetheart Mania hid from the Gestapo, along with a handful of other Jews, in a hand-dug crater underneath a three-story haystack. Eventually, hunger forced them out of their hiding place and they went to work for the Nazis in the Hrubieszow ghetto.

When the Gestapo came to the ghetto, Major and Manya separated and escaped, spending the next 2 1/2 years on the verge of death. Between them, Majir and Mania survived 13 concentration camps, including Auschwitz where both acquired a tattoo on their arms when they were registered.

Mania survived Auschwitz because she volunteered to work in Czechoslovakia where she was liberated by the Soviet Army. Majir was sent to Germany to work and wound up in Dachau in the last days of the war.

Mania and Majir lost their entire families in the Holocaust, except for Mania’s younger brother Chaim, who moved to Great Britain after the war. Mania and her brother were reunited in 1982.

End quote from my website

To get back to the news article, the following quote describes how students are taught today about the Holocaust.

Begin quote from news article:

Without trivializing the Holocaust, Mike explained to the students that the Holocaust started with a group of people being bullied. The bullies, the German soldiers, targeted certain victims, not only based on who they were, but on their appearance, sexual orientation and religion.

“There were also those who stood by and watched while others were victimized, and didn’t do anything to stop it. In many ways, the Holocaust shared the characteristics of school bullying,” Mike said.

End quote from news article

News articles like this are very upsetting to me. Rarely does a news article explain what really happened. Nobody cares about the true story of what really happened.  It’s all about teaching the Jewish version of history to young people today.

Here is what Wikipedia has to say about Holocaust denial

Filed under: Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 9:16 am

Begin quote from Wikipedia:

Holocaust denial is the act of denying the genocide of Jews and other groups in the Holocaust during World War II.[1] Holocaust denial often includes the following claims: that Nazi Germany’s Final Solution was aimed only at deporting Jews from the Reich, but that it did not include the extermination of Jews; that Nazi authorities did not use extermination camps and gas chambers to mass murder Jews; and/or that the actual number of Jews killed was significantly lower than the historically accepted figure of 5 to 6 million, typically around a tenth of that figure.[2][3][4]

End quote

I was banned from writing on Wikipedia long ago. Many years ago, I tried to make a correction on Wikipedia and I was banned, even though my correction was correct, and it was later written by someone else, and added.

If I were allowed to write on Wikipedia now, here is what I would write:

The official figure for the number of Jews killed by the Nazis in Auschwitz is now 1.1 million.

 

Leaflets that deny the existence of gas chambers are dropped on college campus in the UK

Filed under: Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 5:50 am

The following quote is from a news story, which you can read in full at http://jewishnews.timesofisrael.com/holocaust-denial-leaflets-distributed-on-uk-campuses/

Begin quote

Literature denying and belittling the Nazi genocide [of Jews] has been found at University College London, Cambridge University, Edinburgh University and Glasgow University, according to the Union of Jewish Students (UJS).

The leaflets deny the existence of gas chambers.

Gas chamber in main Auschwitz camp

My 2007 photo of the alleged gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp

Look at my photo above, which shows the alleged gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp. I composed this photo to show that there is an open doorway into the oven room where bodies were burned after they had allegedly been gassed.

Actually, this doorway was not there when these rooms were used by the Nazis. It was added later so that tourists could easily move through the rooms, on their tour of the gas chamber.

If gas had been used in a room right next to hot ovens, it would have caused an explosion. That is why Holocaust deniers say that this room was not a gas chamber. The alleged gas chamber room was actually a morgue where bodies were stored, waiting to be burned in the ovens next door.

You can read about the oven room, next to the alleged gas chamber, on this page of my website: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/Tour/Auschwitz1/Auschwitz08B.html

I wrote the blog post which is cited above, 7 years ago, and it is still being read today.  Why are people all over the world still interested in the Dachau shower room?

You can read about the alleged Dachau gas chamber on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/DachauScrapbook/GasChamber/interior00.html

The website page, cited above, was written before I became a Holocaust denier. That’s what happens to people who see too many fake gas chambers — they become deniers, and they might be thrown into prison in 20 different countries which now have Holocaust denier laws.

calling Trump a Nazi is a new kind of Holocaust denial

Filed under: Holocaust, Trump, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 2:28 pm

You can read about Trump and Holocaust denial in this recent news article: http://www.spiked-online.com/newsite/article/calling-trump-a-nazi-is-its-own-kind-of-holocaust-denial/19433#.WJzonRBNF4s

The following quote is from the news article:

President Trump has done some rash, bad things since he took power three weeks ago. But his critics have done something rasher. Something even more bereft of reason than Trump’s orders and tweets. Something more likely to stoke prejudice.

They’ve reduced the Holocaust to a meme.

They have used and abused the greatest crime in history to underscore their contempt for Trump, comparing him to Hitler, talking of his travel ban in the same breath as the Nazis’ persecution of Jews, warning darkly that ‘we know how this ends’. And in the process they’ve relativised the Holocaust. They’ve normalised it. They have dented its gravity and uniqueness by presenting it as a routine, recurring feeling in history that currently finds expression in ‘Trumpism’. They have turned the extermination of Europe’s Jews into an exclamation mark to their angst over Trump, and that is unforgivable. Morally, politically and historically, it is worse than anything Trump has done so far.

There is more than one way to deny the Holocaust. Some do it maliciously, with racist intent, arguing that the Holocaust is a hoax, an invention of Jews who wanted to secure their moral and political power in the postwar era. Others do it more thoughtlessly, with what they consider to be good intentions: they treat the Holocaust as a motif, to be wielded against any contemporary political idea or movement they find terrifying or simply don’t like. Bad people become ‘New Hitlers’, awful conflicts are said to echo the Holocaust. Holocaust dilution, we might call it. And it is a close, if sometimes unwitting, cousin of Holocaust denial.

Holocaust dilution has been rampant in media and radical circles over the past three weeks. In the overblown, sometimes even unhinged response to Trump, all sense of moral and political decorum, or basic reason, seems to have been abandoned. Journalists speak openly of ignoring Godwin’s Law in the Trump era — Godwin’s Law being the internet adage that if a web-based discussion about politics goes on long enough, someone will make a potty Hitler analogy. This grating BTL (‘below the line’) habit has now burst upwards, into actual commentary, and is embraced by the very hacks who for years sneered at the sad web-surfers who couldn’t go five minutes without typing ‘HITLER’.

End of quote from news article

Comparing someone to Hitler is the worst insult you can make.

Is President Donald Trump a Holoaust denier?

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.

http://www.salon.com/2017/01/31/donald-trumps-dance-with-the-devil-did-white-house-mean-to-wink-at-holocaust-deniers/

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!

Is Holocaust education needed more than ever?

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 10:35 am

Why am I asking this question? I have just read this news article which asks the question: http://www.israellycool.com/2016/12/01/does-statement-by-ryerson-student-union-border-on-holocaust-denial/

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

Begin quote

Today, the Ryerson [University] Student Union released this statement that seems to imply that Holocaust denial is a legitimate disagreement – by claiming that motions like this one on the Holocaust “invoke many views.” It implies there is a legitimate view other than “the Holocaust was a tragedy that needs to be addressed,” a viewpoint that is positively vile and a sign these students need Holocaust education more than ever.

End quote

What a revolting development this is!

There are two sides to everything — except the Holocaust. Regarding the Holocaust, there is only one side to the story. If you believe anything except the Jewish side of the story, you will soon be on your way to jail, in 20 countries, not including America.

Note that the gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp was next door to the oven room, but for some unknown reason, the heat of the oven room never caused an explosion.
