If we are suggesting that reparations are to be paid, how about American reparations before International reparations?

I am not sure the shipping companies that transported slaves are still in business.

All of the other groups of people who were murdered in the Holocaust besides the Jews are "and the rest", like The Professor and Mary Ann.

And any German company.  Ever.  (So, hospitals - stop buying Siemens equipment.)  Italian, too.  How about Russian, if we're going for atrocities?  Cambodian?  Chinese?  If we're only looking at people who perpetrated atrocities against Jewish people, I'm pretty sure all of Europe is out due to their behavior at one time or another.  So are all Catholic organizations, because of centuries of persecution.

Just wondering, where does Mr. Reznick draw the line?

To be fair, many people still don't like the Gypsies or the gays and would really fight too hard to stop them from the ovens.

Judging by the absurd level of vitriol I've seen around the internet, in this place and in many others, whenever the Roma are mentioned, there are still a lot of people out there who would like to see them rounded up and put in camps. It's stunning. I've actually seen people on Fark and on Reddit who have  no qualms in coming out and saying that "All gypsies are criminals at heart and they cannot be a part of modern society." Absolutely horrific.

And the gay aspect? Well, Uganda and Nigeria probably think that Hitler had the right idea.

How 'bout if we just round up their descendants and kick them all in the butt with a big boot? Humiliating for them, cathartic for others, nobody goes broke, and we all get a reminder not to do those things again.

The Christian world have always hated the Jews.  The last seventy years of calm won't change that.  It's why Zionism was formed, so the Jews could create a country away from the Christian world.

Nah, countries won't round them up in camps.  They'll just deport them to Bulgaria instead.

Jesus, it's been 70 years, who the hell cares. Nobody involved in deporting Jews even works there anymore.

Hopefully within a decade or two the last holocaust survivor will kick the bucket and we can all forget about that whole mess.

Companies retain liabilities, so if they transported Jews to death camps, they're responsible, in the same way BP is responsible for oil spills that may take decades to sort out through courts.

In the same way the US paid reparations to Japanese put in internment camps.

That's a butt-hurt Jew.
But seriously, Porsche built tanks.

SNCF was the French national train line, then as now, and the Germans occupied it. It was a matter of, "Drive ziss train or vee vill kill you."

Wshington is run by Jewish extremists !2 years of war and a president who persanally lobbies to keep Palestine out of the UN tells us that. Time to call out the nuts amongst the Jews like the nuts aongst the non-jews. Its like the Jew-Klux Clan took over, but no one can say anything because 'the holocaust'. Isn't reparations how the war got started in the first place?
It is consistent however. The Palestinians of today are paying for what the Romans did. The American tax payer has had to pay art theft reparations for what soldiers stole in teh war, although there are no Israeli funds compensating the families of the dead American soldiers who help liberate the Jews for some reason. Could it be opportunists are abusing the genuine suffering of people now long dead at the hands of people now long dead to justify creating new suffering? Its insane.

If this stuff was happening modern day, like Russia into Ukraine or Israel into Palestine, then you'd have a case.  If it happened a long time ago in a dynasty far, far away, you lost and need to get over it.

Read about them yourself. They're an insular group whose cultural values include taking advantage of anyone who isn't then.

Saying "not all gypsies are criminals" is like saying "not all thiefs are criminals". It's a contradiction in terms.

If they don't want to be persecuted, they should integrate and stop being criminals.
