Last week, Liz Cheney schooled Ocasio-Cortez after she absurdly compared border detention centers with concentration camps, and little Sandy fired back, suggesting that Cheney had “co-opted the language of the oppressor” by using the term “extermination camps” (‘Sandy’ seems clearly ignorant of Elie Wiesel’s own reference to Auschwitz as an extermination camp.) Also @Liz_Cheney, the fact that you employed the horrifying word “exterminated” here (co-opting the language of the oppressor) tells us that it’s *you* that needs to brush up on your reading. Hope you enjoy defending concentration camps. I won’t back down fighting against them. https://t.co/OOfrrfa1Ew — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) June 18, 2019 But now, the entire controversy is the fault of Liz Cheney and the “shrieking Republicans” ?...

Donny Deutsch, visibly upset by Sandy’s concentration camp comments, was slammed by her adoring fans after he called her out for her absurdly comparing the border situation with Nazi extermination camps. Really, her rants are becoming tiresome. It’s feeling more and more like watching an oppositional child purposely throwing daily tantrums so that the grown-ups react in helpless anger. And she knows exactly what she’s doing: She’s “ Building Her Brand “ by throwing verbal bombs, and now she is a Dem Party “star.” But in her own district? Looks like maybe not so much. As the Washington Examiner reported last week: ….she has a low 21% favorability rating,…just 11% believe she has their best interests in mind, and …...

The intent of these “designers” is clear: They want to put themselves out there and make lots of money. And they do not care if their imagery evokes stomach-churning horror and disgust; anyone who knows anything about the Holocaust knows that Zyklon-B gas canisters were thrown into gas chambers with hundreds of victims at a time locked inside, choking to death in agony. But I do hope that anyone who actually bought any of these items did so out of ignorance, not out of malicious intent. Via Daily Mail. A designer based in Selby, Yorkshire, has come under fire for selling Nazi products including Zyklon-B themed T-shirts and cups. The sick products, themed after the gas which killed millions of...

Kudos to John King for calling out Rashida Tlaib for her recent Holocaust remarks. He and his guest have it exactly right. Via Free Beacon. During Monday afternoon’s broadcast of Inside Politics, CNN host John King corrected Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) for her recent remarks that Palestinians provided a “safe haven” for Jews after the Holocaust. King noted that Palestinian leaders had sided with Hitler during World War II. In a podcast for Yahoo News released on Saturday, Tlaib said, “there’s always kind of a calming feeling,” when she thinks about how her Palestinian ancestors provided a “safe haven” for Jews when the state of Israel was officially established in 1948. Tlaib, “ignored the fact that Palestinian leaders at...

Alice Walker, who refused to allow her book, The Color Purple, to be translated into Hebrew, is a known Jew-hater, so of course she would praise fellow anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist David Icke’s book. Icke’s thinking, using the term loosely, is so convoluted, that he claims the Jews funded the Holocaust…and he also denies that the Holocaust actually occurred. Not sure how that works. Via The Wrap. The New York Times Book Review is taking heat over an interview in Sunday’s issue in which “The Color Purple” author Alice Walkerexpressed her admiration for a book by the British conspiracy theorist David Icke that has been called anti-Semitic. “The book is an unhinged anti-Semitic conspiracy tract written by one of Britain’s most...

Always remember, never forget. And: Never again. Via Daily Caller. The 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht communicates a dire warning in the wake of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting and a worldwide surge of modern anti-Semitism. Kristallnacht, translated as the “Night of the Broken Glass,” refers to the broken windows of the thousands of synagogues, Jewish homes and Jewish businesses that Nazis ransacked and looted throughout Germany and Austria from Nov. 9 through 10 in 1938. Those two days, also known as the November Pogrom, marked the first time the Nazi party meted out violence against the Jewish people en masse — the beginning of what would prove to be the Nazis’ horrifying and brutal campaign against the Jewish people, Catholics, the...

This is one of many reasons why Ric Grenell should be our next Ambassador to the UN: Just as with Nikki Haley, he speaks the truth. Via Daily Wire. U.S. Ambassador To Germany Richard Grenell slammed Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Monday after she compared Nazi Germany to global warming in a recent speech. Grenell’s comments on Fox News’ “FOX & Friends” came after Ocasio-Cortez said at a campaign event on Friday that the blueprint the United States used to defeat Nazi Germany is the same blueprint that needs to be used to defeat global warming…. Grenell has a strong record of fighting against Nazism as he played a key role in the Trump administration’s deportation of “95-year-old Jakiw Palij...

This is good news not only because it’s one of the greatest films of all time, but because there’s a growing ignorance about the Holocaust combined with a resurgent Jew-hatred among the American and worldwide left. Hopefully this film will again educate and enlighten another generation. Via Mashable. Steven Spielberg’s masterpiece Schindler’s List is turning 25 this December. To celebrate, Universal Pictures is adding to the film’s $225 million box office haul by returning a remastered version of the historical drama to big screens across the country. Schindler’s List tells the true story of Oskar Schindler (Liam Neeson), a German businessman whose efforts to employee Jews during the Holocaust is believed to have saved over 1,000 people from concentration camps,...

SS guards dumping bodies into mass grave in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp I have been watching with increasing dismay, and disgust, at the Trump-hating hordes invoking terms such as “Hitler,” “Nazis” and “concentration camps’ to show their opposition to the Trump Administration. Making absurd and outrageous comparisons shows very sloppy thinking, and it only increases the hysteria that the Democrats are creating about our immigration policy. Here is a “gem” from Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Dummy): Dem CT Sen Blumenthal: This policy of family separation reminds us of the cattle cars of Nazi Germany when children were separated from their parents and marched to supposed showers..it reminds us of all the darkest periods in American history..it should be stopped right away....

Today is Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. With all the unspeakable evil of that time, there were also shining examples of humanity and love. This is one of those stories: Via Times of Israel: Truus Wijsmuller saved thousands of Jews in WWII. Why has no one heard of her? ….Other rescuers are household names: Steven Spielberg made a Hollywood film about Oskar Schindler. Streets in countries worldwide are named for Raoul Wallenberg. Nicholas Winton was knighted by Queen Elizabeth. But few, even in the Netherlands, have heard of Wijsmuller since her death in 1978 at 82. Seventy-two years after the end of World War II, not many of the mainly German- and Austrian-Jewish children whom Wijsmuller rescued are still alive...

Maybe this is not just a case of a poor marketing idea, given the recent tension between Poland and Israel over Poland’s new “Holocaust Law,” forbidding any reference to Auschwitz and the other death camps in Poland as “Polish.” And Poland’s PM has come out with the preposterous claim that Jews were also perpetrators of the Holocaust. The socks have been renamed “Patrick” after a complaint from the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum. But I am thinking of getting a few pair, to send to Joy Behar, Ana Navarro and other idiots Libs who call POTUS and his supporters “Nazis.” Via NY Post. A Polish company is under fire for trying to sell socks that look like Adolf Hitler. The questionable...

This episode of the PBS series “Finding Your Roots” is scheduled to air tonight, October 31. Via Times of Israel. In the forthcoming episode of the PBS series “Finding Your Roots,” American Jewish actress Scarlett Johansson discovers the tragic fate of her relatives who died in the Holocaust…. Johansson’s grandfather left Poland for the United States, where he worked as a grocer in New York. The PBS show used documentation from Yad Vashem to determine that his brother and family died in the ghetto…. “It’s crazy to imagine that Saul would be on the other side selling bananas on Ludlow Street. And how different it would be being in America at that time,” the 32-year-old actress says. “The fate of...

A very meaningful and touching gesture from the Duke and Duchess. Via Jewish Chronicle. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the Stutthof concentration camp in Poland…where they met Holocaust survivors. As many as 110,000 Jews were imprisoned in Stutthof, east of Gdansk, before the camp was liberated by the Allied Forces in May 1945. The visit was part of the royal couple’s five-day tour of Germany and Poland. The Holocaust Educational Trust (HET) arranged for the Duke and Duchess to meet Manfred Goldberg and Zigi Shipper, both 87, who recounted the ordeal of life in Stutthof, where they were both imprisoned. Both men settled in north London after the war, and regularly visit schools across the UK to share...

Wait, there’s more: This Yale Ph.D (not kidding) also compares Dr. Ben Carson to a Holocaust Denier, because he says transgender people are really “men and women in disguise” – which means Carson does not treat them as “fully human.” Via College Fix. Freedom of speech must take a backseat to freedom from offense because the Holocaust happened. That’s the nutshell argument by a New York University vice provost in favor of universities blocking students and faculty from inviting controversial speakers. Ulrich Baer, who oversees faculty, arts, humanities and diversity at the elite Manhattan college, writes in The New York Times that “personal experience and testimony” can be more important than “the primacy of argument,” as evidenced by the testimony...
