Amos Quito: casual disregard: wellbye.jpg

/holocaust deniers are basically as stupid as truthers and birthers
//take away the substance of their argument. you are necessarily left with the same underlying stupidity: astronomically incorrect lies = reality


Some genocides are more fashionable to deny than others:


"In 1982, the Israeli Foreign Ministry attempted to prevent an international conference on genocide, held in Tel Aviv, from including any mention of the Armenian Genocide. Several reports suggested that Turkey had warned that Turkish Jews might face "reprisals", if the conference permitted Armenian participation."


Ironic? Hypocritical? Practical?

You decide.


On phone so it's too difficult to find, but there was a study on Jewish children being taught about the Holocaust. Most came back with a lesson learned of "we should never let this happen again *to our people*", rather than "wholescale slaughter of *any* peoples should never happen". IIRC it depended on how it was presented...

/sigh

Controversial French philosopher Roger Garaudy has died at the age of 98.

An ex-member of the communist party, he converted to Islam in the 1980s. His 1996 book The Founding Myths of Israeli Politics denied that the killing of Jews by the Nazis constituted genocide.


Look, just because you don't have a job and write a book doesn't mean you get to call yourself a philosopher.

I mean, yes, those are pretty much the only qualifications for being a philosopher, but other unemployed book-writers need to agree you are one.

The French get a bad rap for surrendering, but most people don't think abput the fact that their population of fighting men had been decimated in WWI, whichs they did not come home to make babbies to grow up to be soldiers. The French just did not have the manpower.

And while the Viscey (sic) government collaborated, the French also had a strong resistance movement.

Sounds plausible, but were they really worse off in that aspect than the Germans after WW1?

Bad rap or not, they reconfirmed their Frenchyness in 2003. They are what they are, I'm not pissed anymore but my sister still returns merchandise if after she gets it home she discovers a little gold "Made in France" sticker on the inside of the packaging.

Could you explain that last paragraph? Just curious?


2003, the French oppose invading Iraq. They turned out to be right, but that's not going to stop the derpatastic neo-con hate. How *dare* any country disagree with the United States when we are wrong.

What also is lacking from most history books was France was abandoned by England. Over 600,000 British soldiers were in France, retreated to the beach, dropped all their weapons and caught every boat they could to get back to England. The French defenses collapsed after the Germans came around on their flanks where the British were suppose to be.

/something I just read about a couple of days ago.
//the British then sank two French battleships with crew because the Germans might get them
///messed up, huh?

He denies the Communist Holocaust? Or the Muslim Communist Holocaust? Or the French Muslim Communist Holocaust?

The 20th Century was a busy time.

You should read more. That's not how Dunkirk went down. At all.

All the witty and deserved kudos to subby have been said, so I will just add that "Holocaust revisionists," or whatever they are calling themelves this week, are one of the nastier groups of derptards in our world, started by a couple of SS officers IIRC. Good riddence.

At least the man deserves some credit for being a communist and a member of the communist party and still have the balls to criticize the soviet union invasion of Czechoslovakia when it happened. His kind doesn't take that too kindly.
