You can never please these people. You really can’t.
“Holocaust denial is alive and well in the highest offices of the United States. It is being spread by those in President Trump’s innermost circle. It may have all started as a mistake by a new administration that is loath to admit it’s wrong. Conversely, it may be a conscious attempt by people with anti-Semitic sympathies to rewrite history. Either way it is deeply disturbing.
For me these developments are intensely personal—not because I have immediate family members who died in the Holocaust. I don’t. But I have spent a good number of years fighting something which the White House now seems to be fostering.
Last Friday, I was in Amsterdam attending a screening of the movie Denial. …
The de-Judaization of the Holocaust, as exemplified by the White House statement, is what I term softcore Holocaust denial …”
Who knew it was politically incorrect now to acknowledge the suffering of non-Jews during the Second World War? If there hadn’t been such an uproar about it, I would have never noticed.
Update: The US Holocaust Memorial Museum is condemning President Trump.
This statement from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum is a pretty strong rebuke of the Trump administration: pic.twitter.com/w3ogGPb9gw
