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.
