A neglected element in Holocaust education

Sar Shalom

In teaching about the Holocaust, much emphasis is placed on the horrors, no need to elaborate, perpetrated by the Third Reich regime and the SS officer corps. However, much less, if any, is placed on the measures that the regime used to entice the German population to see what would eventually be done to the Jews as a justifiable reaction to the supposed threat posed by world Jewry. One aspect of this campaign was to start with publicizing incontrovertible unflattering facts about the Jews. These unflattering facts became a gateway drug to accepting half-truths about the Jews which in turn became a gateway drug to accepting total fabrications. Once those total fabrications were accepted as "truth," it became possible to believe that whatever was done to the Jews subsequently was justified punishment for what they supposedly did.

A similar pattern is playing itself out in how the Palestinianists propagandize about Israel's actions as they affect the Palestinians. It is incontrovertible that there is some degree of suffering, albeit considerably less than is claimed among the Palestinianists, among the general Palestinian population and the Israel exercises some degree of influence over how they live their lives. Those facts are the gateway drug for Western do-gooders to believe that when terrorists embed themselves within peaceful marchers demanding return to their homes in internationally recognized Israel and Israel deploys snipers against those terrorists, Israel is using kinetic force against the march for return as a march for return. That in turn is a gateway drug to believing that Israel is opening (nonexistent) dams in the south in order to flood Gaza.

Nooses and Numbers

Doodad

One reason so many assumed the Bubba.Nascar noose story would turn out to be fake is that pretty much all noose race stories have turned out to be fake or misunderstandings. But, given the assumption that America is a racist hellhole, wouldn't one expect that the Bubba story would turn out to be a real hate event? Surely the laws of probability would say that  has to be the case. Yet we all know what happened.

My take is that America is NOT the racist hellhole so many claim. That would explain a lot.

Also, given the hue and cry over all this, you would think that racists would be falling all over themselves to plant nooses everywhere to crank up the hatred. So far, nothing.

You know, it's easy to fool the usual  suspects, the anarchists and the fools. They wanna be fooled.

Race Card Driver: The Noose That Wasn't

Doodad

The world was shocked recently when black Nascar driver Bubba Wallace found a noose in his assigned garage. Obviously the work of racists; something found in abundance in the Confederate flag waving Nascar crowd. The other drivers, indeed the world at large stood in solidarity with Bubba.

Trouble is, the FBI investigation showed the "noose," was just a garage door puller that had been there since long before Bubba arrived in that particular stall. Oopsy!

Bubba however is having none of it and has doubled down.

“I’ve been racing all of my life,” Wallace, the racing circuit's only Black driver, told "CNN Tonight" anchor Don Lemon. “We've raced out of hundreds of garages that never had garage pulls like that. So people that want to call it a garage pull and put out all the videos and photos of knots being as their evidence, go ahead, but from the evidence that we have – and I have – it’s a straight-up noose.”
Wallace also said he hadn't seen the noose personally, but had seen photos of it.
"Whether tied in 2019 or whatever, it was a noose," he noted. "So, it wasn't directed at me but somebody tied a noose. That's what I'm saying."
 Brings to mind that old saying," When all you have is a hammer, everything's a nail."

edited to add: Randall is right. Bubba didn't report it originally, Nascar did. Bubba simply rode the wave then doubled down.

2nd edit: to his credit, Wallace has issued this statement

Go Canada!!!

Doodad




Today the UN will vote on who gets one of the temporary security council seats. Canada is running against Ireland and Norway. I'm a little biased for Canada since I live here and, for the most part, Canada has been supportive of Israel. Ireland and Norway have not been. Hopefully, if Canada wins, it will not turn anti-Israel.

Vindicated At Last

Doodad

For years here I have been ranting about Commies and secretly wondering if I was just paranoid.

HA!

Vindicated At Last.

The Commies have taken over the streets and unleashed the Kraken. I warned you.
