Definitely the platform, but not the premier. What about the person and the agent?
you can see he is definitely genetically superior
On Friday, we noted that, for the first time since Holocaust Remembrance Day became a thing, the White House accidentally forgot to include “Jews” in its statement.

This, it turns out, wasn’t quite an accident.

It’s just that how can you mention “Jews” dying in the Holocaust if you’re not going to mention everybody. What do they think they are, “chosen”??? Chuck Todd decided to ask Reince Priebus, the White House Chief of Staff.

“Mr. Priebus, do you understand why many Jews were offended by the White House’s decision not to note that the Holocaust was about eradicating the Jews?” he asked.

“Well, I recognize in fact obviously that that was what the Holocaust was about, and it’s a horrible event, and obviously a miserable time in history that we remember here at the White House and certainly will never forget the Jewish people that suffered in World War II and obviously still incredible wounds that remain and a time in history that was of great incredible horrific magnitude and everyone’s heart here is impacted by the memory of that terrible time,” Priebus said. “And so, for the record, that’s the case and certainly we don’t mean any ill will to anybody.”

“Do you regret, does the President regret not—do you regret the statement?” Todd asked.

“I don’t know about regret. No, there’s no—” Priebus began.

“There’s no regret, not acknowledging the pain that—” Todd interjected.

“We acknowledge it,” Priebus said.

“But you didn’t,” Todd pressed.

“We acknowledge the horrible time of the Holocaust and what it meant for history, and so—” Priebus said, before Todd interrupted again.

“But why whitewash Jews from that statement?” he asked.

“I’m not whitewashing anything, Chuck,” Priebus said.

“The statement did,” Todd replied.

“I just told you that it was horrible and I’m telling you now that that’s the way we feel about it, and it’s a terrible time in history,” Priebus said. “And obviously I think you know that President Trump has dear family members that are Jewish, and there was no harm or ill will or offense intended by any of that.”

What about White House spokeswoman Hope Hicks?

The White House statement on International Holocaust Remembrance Day didn’t mention Jews or anti-Semitism because “despite what the media reports, we are an incredibly inclusive group and we took into account all of those who suffered,” administration spokeswoman Hope Hicks told CNN on Saturday.

Hicks provided a link to a Huffington Post UK story noting that while 6 million Jews were killed by the Nazis, 5 million others were also slaughtered during Adolf Hitler’s genocide, including “priests, gypsies, people with mental or physical disabilities, communists, trade unionists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, anarchists, Poles and other Slavic peoples, and resistance fighters.”

See, if they’d named Jews, they would have had to name “priests, gypsies, people with mental or physical disabilities, communists, trade unionists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, anarchists, Poles and other Slavic peoples, and resistance fighters,” and that takes up almost two full lines on a piece of paper! AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!

So we’re clear, leaving the Jews out of the Holocaust wasn’t an oversight, it was intentional. And you will never guess who is SO HAPPY about that intent, it is the Actual Nazis at the Daily Stormer!

“Jews Triggered Into Mindless Rage at Trump Holocaust Memorial Statement” (no link) explains why they are so :D

Organized Jewry is frothing at the mouth at Donald Trump’s faux pas on “Holocaust memorial day.”

The political “misstep”? Equating the suffering of all innocent people in World War II with the sufferink of Jews, which we all are supposed to know is different because Jews are a superior race.

This is the first time in history the President of the United States has made no mention of Jews, anti-Semitism, or the science fiction Zionist folklore about ovens and gas chambers so prominent in (((Hollywood))) narratives.

Trump’s statement is obviously not pro-Nazi, but he is still exceeding expectations in pushing back against Jewish supremacy. The vast majority of people in America, who are generally ignorant regarding the truth of World War II, will see nothing wrong with Trump’s statement, but the kneejerk Jewish reaction exposes them once again.

The first step of Holocaust Denial is explaining that nothing like six million Jews died — like maybe a couple here or there, by accident. The second step of Holocaust Denial is posting at Stormfront or becoming president of the United States through the Magic of Memes! Specifically memes about putting Jews in ovens.

And there you have President Steve Bannon’s little gift to his “alt-right” pals — the same ones for whom he said his “news” site, Breitbart.com was the premier platform.

    “…we took into account all of those who suffered,” administration spokeswoman Hope Hicks told CNN on Saturday.

    And yet when it comes to victims of terrorism in those sad countries with no Trump hotel, Little Baby Donnie was not quite as inclusive:

    Trump told the Christian Broadcasting Network that he would favor Christians after host David Brody asked, “As it relates to persecuted Christians, do you see them as kind of a priority here?”

    “We are going to help them. They’ve been horribly treated,” the president responded.

Of course, as their teacher, I had to tell them that all violence is abhorrent and we should look for peaceful ways to deal with bigots, but I’m pretty sure they all left knowing that punching a nazi is the right thing to do. Always.

    “Bannon is a unique combination of the essential amorality of the modern American corporate elite—he did luxurious time at Goldman Sachs—and a kind of fundamental American political evil. His fingerprints are all over the events of the past weekend. There isn’t a chance in hell that he didn’t know that signing this executive order on Holocaust Remembrance Day wouldn’t throw the outrage into overdrive, any more than he wasn’t behind the appalling proclamation in which Jewish victims of the Holocaust are not mentioned.

    From Charles Pierce: “That’s where we seem to be today. What is anybody sure of? After this weekend, there can be no doubt that the Democrats in Congress now have to form a solid bloc against any and all nominations until such time as the Executive Branch regains a modicum of sanity. And even if they do, denying unanimous consent at all turns seems to be the only real club they have in the bag. And the Republicans have to decide, once and for all, if they stand for the republic or for one man’s ghastly view of his fellow humans and the world they’ve created.

    Paul Ryan has made it clear that he would support Caligula if Caligula’s horse promised to vote in the Senate to cut the estate tax, so he’s hopeless. Saying, as did Senators Ben Sasse and Susan Collins, that the problem with the president*’s order is that it’s “too broad” is mushy nonsense. Senator Bob Corker’s lament that it was badly drawn will not do, either. The problem is that the order is a moral and political abomination, not that it’s badly worded. Jesus H. Christ on an oxcart, syntax is the least of our problems.”

      Is that Miss Pavlichenko on the right? It is indeed.

      My wife and I watched this movie last night:

      Required watching for all Nazi Punchers.

      • Idiokraticdrumpfenjugend

        Thanks for that.

  • msanthropesmr

    If you’re having trouble organising your Jewry, try a nice Jewry box.

    • msanthrope

      I got one a them.

      • ahughes798

        OT…but I really hate it when people say “Jewlery” instead of “Jewelry.” Jewlery sound like a noun that describes a bunch of Jews.

  • Apple Scruff

    “Well, I recognize in fact obviously that that was what the Holocaust was about, and it’s a horrible event, and obviously a miserable time in history that we remember here at the White House and certainly will never forget the Jewish people that suffered in World War II and obviously still incredible wounds that remain and a time in history that was of great incredible horrific magnitude and everyone’s heart here is impacted by the memory of that terrible time,”

    You can tell Rice Penis is talking out his ass cause he barely took a breath in the long-ass run-on sentence.

    Also, they picked a helluva time to be “inclusive”. FUCK YOU.

  • natoslug

    This is not the America I knew and loved. The America I knew and loved would have white nationalist and amateur anal cyst Richard Spencer punched in the face daily.

    • Lara

      And would have ridden Bannon out on a rail a while ago.

      • natoslug

        A rail? I thought we weren’t supposed to be discussing James Woods alleged coke habit. Are you trying to get us sued? Remember, there’s currently no evidence that the reason James Woods is so skinny and angry all the time is because he is constantly coked to the gills. Although it would explain a lot, both about him and about KellyAnne Conway.

  • Jessee Michael

    NOT DEFENDING THE STATEMENT IN THE LEAST, but I grew up Jewish and in the good ol’ American public school system, and the number I always heard was 6 million, over and over again – figuring that was *the* number, and all Jews. It wasn’t until college that I just wound up reading more and talking about it more, and learned how many others were executed by the Nazis. I think the important issue is not that it was half Jews, or also gays and gypsies and mentally ill and all… it’s that that number that we learned as kids WAS OFF BY HALF. That’s how much more horrific the Holocaust was, and how horrific the regime was. And it shows just how evil and powerful some people can be, and how complacent others can be when we start witnessing similar potential rear its ugly head. We must repeat *all* the facts of that horror, consistently.

    • C4TWOMAN

      “WAS OFF BY HALF”

      Orly? Link to trufax?
      For the record, historians I respect do say the number of Jews killed is between 5 and 6 million. But I don’t know anyone beside Holocaust deniers claiming it’s half…

      • Apple Scruff

        I think what he means is that yes, 6 million Jews but also, an additional 5 million “others” that are often not factored into the death totals.

      • Relativicus

        I think he’s saying that the six million Jews were half of those ultimately killed. I also think all of his qualifiers are an attempt to hide denial behind a thin veil of “getting the history right.” But I have no evidence to support my thoughts.

        • Apple Scruff

          Yeah. Since when did Trump’s team care about “inclusiveness”??

        • Jessee Michael

          I was off by a little, with estimates of 5 million “others” who were exterminated, 11 million total. Don’t know how old you guys are or where you grew up, but that was not the number I remember being taught. And this is not an “all lives matter” debate.

          So to the contrary, I’m not denying anything. The point is that we need to educate just how horrific it was, and that while America says “oh, we’re just banning Muslims, and we’ll just intern some Japanese”, the reality of history cannot be forgotten. We have a shitty tendency to repeat it.

        • keenanjay

          I think you read something into this not intended.

          • Relativicus

            Possibly. After years of reading, “I voted for Obama twice, but…” and “I’m not a conservative, but…” comments I’m probably a little over-sensitive to suspicions that heavily qualified comments come from disingenuous commenters.

      • keenanjay

        I think you misread the comment.

        • C4TWOMAN

          I’ll admit that’s a possibility.
          I’ll add, if you’re at all savvy about how Holocaust Denial works, and you’re going to make a comment about accuracy in “numbers killed”, it’s on you to judge if your written communications skills are up to the task to avoid missreadings.

          Tl;Dr: it is almost impossible to do the above in a short comment without sounding like a Holocaust Denier. Here’s a link to understand why this is the case:
          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holocaust_denial

    • Relativicus

      The attempted genocide of Jews was the actual point of the Final Solution, which is why the focus of the Holocaust remains, appropriately, on the Jews. Many others were murdered as well, but The Holocaust was for the Jews and the Jews alone.

      • VagendaofNastyWoman

        This is one of history’s horrific lessons. When you build a death machine, it keeps on running for a while, even after the people you originally designed it for are gone.

      • Jessee Michael

        Understood.

      • Jack Tenhet

        In fact, the Final Solution was drafted as “The Final Solution to the Jewish Question”, so the holocaust was absolutely centered on Jews and, as Nazis said “Jewishness”. They even debated about how much Jewish blood someone could have in their veins to be considered a Jew and therefore murdered.

    • natoslug

      So really just a Genocide Lite? Good for those days where a full genocide is just too filling . . . .

    • Tofu_Killer

      Okay, aside from your comment being easily misunderstood (the half figure that you mention in your muddled syntax is half of an estimated 12 million, not half of 6 million), you seem to be overreaching for some sense of imagined fairness.

      Apart from deniers, no one questions the astonishing willingness of the Nazi regime to murder those they viewed as enemies. What is missing from your moral accounting however is that the entire logic for having the camp system, the premise that allowed the general population to support the camps, and that franchised the Nazi system into Hungary and Poland with so much success, was the general belief in the existential evil of Jews. The other populations caught up in the holocaust were secondary to that mission and always similarly premised on eugenics or political expediency. Without antisemitism, internment on the scale of the holocaust would have lacked popular support. In my book that places the story of Jewish persecution at the center of the narrative.

      Now to address your accounting of the actual toll of humanity. For the record, I am loath to do this part because it feeds into the kind of pigeonholing that creates monsters like these we are discussing, but because you bring it up I will do the math on their terms.

      Best estimates place the dead from 1939-1945 at:

      5-6 million interned for being Jewish (real or imagined)
      1 million Polish citizens interned for being in the way and Slavic
      200 thousand Roma
      70 thousand mentally or physically handicapped
      some smaller number of dissidents, communists, and homosexuals (numbers differ because they overlap to some degree with the above)

      Those are the groups that were interned explicitly as part of the Final Solution, meeting your criteria above. The missing group needed to get us to the estimated 12 million that died in the internment camps were there because the infrastructure was already in place to hold the Jews. That missing group were the 5 million Soviet soldiers and citizens sent to the camps after the June 1941 invasion of the USSR. Overwhelmed by the number of prisoners the logic of the internment camps was extended to deal with this new population. The logic behind this decision turned on the Soviets not being signatories to the Geneva Convention, and so the German leadership decided that there was no requirement to treat them humanely.

      So there are your numbers, and to me they prove nothing close to your claim that Jews were not the primary target of the Nazi regime. To say that they were not at the center of the storm skews the significance of the holocaust as an historical event and downplays the central role antisemitism played in creating and sustaining general tolerance of Nazi crimes. Hatred of the Other created and maintained Nazism, and that is something we must always keep in mind when facing the threats of this new age of mindless nationalism.

      • yyyaz

        Excellent.

      • Gregory Brown

        One of the truly horrifying aspects of the Holocaust is that it was aided and abetted by the IBM Corporation’s punch-card technology, which enabled the Germans not only to identify Jews individually, but to operate the trains and log the results. The major death camps all had a bunker where the IBM machines were kept. Thomas Watson, the head of IBM, made sure that the highly sensitive German machines were serviced twice monthly and that the custom card stock used for the billions of punch cards needed to run the machines was always in full supply. He had intermediaries in Switzerland who made sure the Germans got what they needed. The profits, of course, were sequestered during the war, but afterward, IBM was one of the first companies to get its money out of Germany.

  • Mavenmaven

    When Bannon says, he will ensure that the forces of evil will never again defeat the powers of good, he means that the Aryan Race won’t be defeated this time.

  • UnsaltedSinner

    Being an incredibly inclusive group, they obviously wouldn’t want to offend the Nazis that are included in that group.

    • Flashman

      Unfortunately, in this case “inclusive” means Schutzstaffel, SA, Sonderdienst, Waffen SS, Hitler Jugend, Organization Todt, and everyday, man-in-the-street Panzergrenadiers and Volksturm.

      • VagendaofNastyWoman

        Hey, they all died, too.. the ones who weren’t hidden by “heroes” s/

    “Jewish people that suffered in World War II ….” For the record, we’re talking the systematic extermination of ONE HALF of all the Jews in Europe, ONE THIRD of all Jews in the world. Priebus makes it sound like maybe a few had indigestion ….

    • Relativicus

      I’m sure they did! Concentration Camp Cuisine (premiering this week on Bravo!) probably wasn’t very good.

      • Khavrinen

      Also, it was very sad. And “everybody” suffered.

      Let’s not forget the poor concentration camp guards!

      Some of them probably had indigestion too!

    “Hicks provided a link– noting that while 6 million Jews were killed by the Nazis, 5 million others were also slaughtered –including “priests, gypsies, people with mental or physical disabilities, communists, trade unionists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, anarchists, Poles and other Slavic peoples, and resistance fighters.”

    So NOW you’re leaving out the GAYS, you stupid mofo!!!

    • Bitter Scribe

      Naw. In their world, gays are covered under “people with mental or physical disabilities.”

      • nightmoth

      • Gregory Brown

        I feel gypped.

  • Bitter Scribe

    So what’s the deal…Stormfront acknowledges that the Nazis killed 6 million Jews, but claims they did it without gas chambers or ovens? Because that would be…what, somehow cheating?

    • Villago Delenda Est

      The reason that the Nazis used the gas chambers and ovens (that is, industrialized murder) is because it was logistically very difficult to just shoot them all.

      • Bitter Scribe

        Plus they could force other prisoners to do the really repulsive stuff, like untangling the bodies and feeding them into the ovens. Using firearms would have required German personnel, some of whom might have had bad reactions to shooting into naked, unarmed hordes of screaming civilians, most of them women and children.

      • Jack Tenhet

        Exactly. According to genuine documentation, the gas chambers were constructed because bullets were too expensive. That’s how chillingly heartless Nazis are.

        • gamera23

          Surprised they didn’t put their victims to work retrieving used bullets from executions and using them to make new ones.

        • Gregory Brown

          The Germans established the gas chambers for any number of reasons, the chief of which was economy of scale. Before the in-ground chambers they already had moved on to gassing trucks. But there was a significant psychological reason to quit shooting people in the back of the head. The soldiers doing the shooting soon perceived that the back of a person’s head is as individual and personal as the front, and they became increasingly freaked out by the experience.

          • Jack Tenhet

            Thank you for further clarity on this. No doubt there were many other reasons and I was just stating one that I could recall off the top of my head. No doubt that simple humanity would necessitate a more industrialized method for extermination. After all, propaganda can only go so far toward dehumanizing swathes of people. The human mind can only bend so much. The chambers required less actual people to operate and in their twisted logic was probably considered more “humane”. I’m not saying I agree with their logic, just stating the cold calculation of it all.

            Whatever the reasons, they are chilling to anyone with an actual soul.

          • Gregory Brown

            Chilling like a cold hand on your heart, my friend. Two novels by Ian MacMillan, “Orbit of Darkenss,” and “Village of a Million Spirits,” evoke better than anything else I have ever encountered in my extensive reading on the Holocaust, the pall of evil that blanketed Europe in those years.
