Remembering the Holocaust; Recognizing Today’s Nazis

Tonight, Yom HaShoah–Holocaust Memorial Day–begins and lasts until nightfall Monday Night. My maternal grandparents were Holocaust survivors, and on both my mother’s and father’s sides our family was mostly wiped out by the Nazis. I’ll have more to say, tomorrow, about how the Holocaust has been misused and misappropriated by the left–with the liberal Jewish Community “leadership” complicit.

Two Symbols, Same Deal

It is important to memorialize the 6 million Jews who were specifically targeted and murdered by the Nazis for the crime of having Jewish blood (and also the 5 million others who were murdered by them as well). But it is also important to note the message of the Holocaust which is largely forgotten, especially by liberal do-gooder Jews, the unelected, unrepresentative, self-anointed who purport to lead my community: that those filled with hate today also want to eliminate the Jews–and they are Muslims. Today’s liberals–most shamefully, Jewish liberals–have built an entire industry on the Holocaust. Yet, while they remember dead Jews, they think it’s A-OK to hang out with today’s Nazis and justify their wholesale slaughter of Jews in Israel, today.

Poignant cartoon. Thanks.
I am very familiar with the liberal Jews to which you refer. Mostly, it would seem they are aging baby boomers, children of the 60’s and 70s.
I detect, however, a growing recognition among Jews on college campuses that Muslims are indeed a threat. In places like UC Irvine, Wayne State, Columbia, and several schools in Canada (Concordia), when the Muslim Student Association reaches a critical mass of power on campus, Jewish students become the targets of mini-Jihad.
I am hopeful today’s young Jews will wake up in time to save themselves, their children, and Israel from the damage done by their parents.
OTOH, if Jews migrate to the Republican Party, as I suspect they will over time, then the Democrats will have no restraining influence whatsoever (ie, Jimmy Carter acolytes in charge). This would certainly be very bad for Israel and for Jews around the world. It might not, therefore, be such a bad thing to have Jews present in Democratic party, even if they share the same benches with left-wing anti-semites and Muslims.

Here’s my comment. It is more than the Jews who are facing the loss of their freedoms.
It is time to call a spade a spade. Jackson and Sharpton are bigots. Let’s fire them by speaking out every time their twisted words appear on tv.
The Islamic religion is a sham. No real religion foments killing non-believers in its holy words. Let’s speak out every time the government coddles Islamic thugs. In fact, any thugs.
A creeping, holocaust in disguise has been weakening the foundations of our country in the guise of political correctness.
In the name of free speech, speak out.
We need to get mad as hell and stop taking it from these self righteous phonies.
There is no need for violence. But there is a need to defend your beliefs. If we don’t help good triumph over evil, we are the dummies and we will have earned our fate.
Debbie Schlussel is in the lead. Take her facts and wrap them around the heads of anyone and everyone who is stealing your right to be free, free from political correctness. We don’t need a holocaust on our rights. Joe McCarthy is back. This time he is not a Senator, he is the Media.

sonomaca: Good points. However, We need not worry about Jews remaining in the Democratic party for the purpose of restraint. If every Jew left the Democratic party tomorrow, the Democratic party would cease to exist. The same goes for blacks. There simply aren’t enough white, gentile liberals in the party to sustain it’s relevance.

spiffo on April 15, 2007 at 4:34 pm

spiffo: good point.
I would love to ask Waxman or Feingold why the are so infatuated with Islamofacists. Do they hate themselves and their fellow Jews so much that genocide seems like a good solution?
And what of the Hollywood elite. Spielberg can make Shindler’s List and then go silent on today’s threatened genocide. Geffen is in love with Obama who, apparently, is a Muslim or Muslim sympathizer (see all his shady Arab “business” partners in Chicago), and I doubt whether Obama would shed too many tears if Israel vanished in a cloud of dust.
Dennis Praeger and David Mamet talk about the self-hating Jew or the Jew who sees himself as a leftist above all. The same type exists in Israel, where the secular lefty urban elite refer to the religious or Orthodox as “the Jews”, as if they themselves were something else.

sonomaca on April 15, 2007 at 4:49 pm

I think the point that Debbie is trying to make is that there are far too many liberal Jews who deny and ignore what is going on in our own communities as well as in our colleges and universities. The tragedy here is the misinformed and misguided leadership continually pander to Muslims that would destroy us all at the first opportunity. These are today’s Nazi’s and they must be responded to as such. Many in our government would do well to realize this too. If not, history will repeat itself

OneIrishJew on April 15, 2007 at 5:12 pm

I think you all have missed the point. The Jews have been convenient victims for 5000 years. Since 1948 they have been fighting for their very existence in Israel, yet again. Although last year, it looked like they no longer know how to do that.
The victim of political correctness in the U.S. is everyone. You may ask, “Why don’t the liberal Jews know better? Do better.” This 21st century stealth holocaust will take away the freedom of 300 million. So why don’t liberal Americans know better?
Losing your freedom is not losing your life. It is worse.

Happiness Pursuer on April 15, 2007 at 5:40 pm

Hey…I keep telling everybody we should start shooting at the moose-lims, but they all say I’m too ex-treeeeme. I’m not going to be the lone ranger, the feds will lock me up in a heartbeat.

davidlanham on April 15, 2007 at 6:11 pm

So why don’t liberal Americans know better?
Does it really matter? Those of us not “liberal Americans” what are WE doing about it? If we know it is happening then the responsibility is ours regardless of what “liberals” do or don’t do.

AlturaCt on April 15, 2007 at 7:05 pm

Good for you AlturaCt. Finally, somebody gets it.
Please don’t ask for whom the bell tolls. It tolls for you.
Now, what are you wimps going to do about it? After all, it is only your freedom, your future. And if you have children, theirs, too.

Happiness Pursuer on April 15, 2007 at 7:45 pm

That little comic strip says it most eloquently.
Never forget. As Begin said, “Never Again.”
And yet there is so much (mostly willful) ignorance to overcome!

I have been extremely depressed the past two days so forgive me if I hijack this comment thread for my own personal needs. I live in Israel and usually I feel pretty strong in my battle with the Islamofascists. Today at 10am, the siren sounded to commemorate Holocaust victims. It is very powerful because cars will stop on the street and everyone gets out and stands by their car. I was at home at the time, and in the apt. above us there are Arabs doing construction. When the siren sounded, they turned up their radio playing Arabic music and also turned on their drills. I was so angry! How dare they! Next week is Yom HaZikaron and we will have another siren, this time to commemorate those lost in terrorist attacks and fallen in battle. My husband says he plans to go up there and tell them ahead of time that he had better not hear a sound coming from the apt. for those two minutes, or else. We’ll see how that goes.
I keep up on the news and have been following the PC crap about Sharpton and Jackson, Imus, the Duke LaCrosse players, etc. Usually I’m able to draw strength from Debbie’s blog, and LGF, among others, because it is easy to get depressed over the PC destruction of our society.
But yesterday, I ran across two names mentioned in a comment section and the poster asked “Do you recognize these names? If not, why not?” I couldn’t resist following up on the mystery, so I googled Channon Christian and Christopher Newsome. OMG, I will not post the details here out of respect for anyone who is having a bad day, but suffice it to say, this crime is, in my opinion, far worse than anything Charles Manson ever did (and I read Helter Skelter, so I mean what I say). The media has all but ignored it entirely, because the perpetrators are black thugs and the victims are a young white couple. It doesn’t fit the liberal definition of a race hate crime. As if this wasn’t a big enough downer, I started clicking away at links and came to a black website where black people were saying unimaginably horrible things about the white victims. Why? I clicked away from there, and followed a link to a “rally for Channon and Christopher.” That sounds positive, right? I thought “this is just what I need.” Go there to that website, only to figure out after reading a few comments that it is a White Supremacist website and I was again shocked and horrified to read some of the stuff that was being said there about black people in general (oh, and it should come as no surprise that the folks there blame the Jews for all black crime, though they hate blacks, hispanics, and Asians too, it’s really the Jews that are behind it all, you see).
Anyway folks, I’m really deep in a rut and cannot get out. I thought I was no stranger to hatred and bigotry but my readings of the last two days have really opened my eyes to a depth and breadth of hate in this country that I guess I didn’t really know existed. People accuse US of being racists because we simply ask not to be killed. I would have nothing against Muslims if not for the fact that they are trying to destroy me. I’m not engaging in baseless hatred by pointing out Islam’s genocidal tenets. For years, I swallowed the old line that there are good Muslims and bad Muslims, but now I’m convinced that good Muslims are good only because they refuse to follow the teachings of Islam. Those who follow the teachings . . . well, you know where that leads. Islam is the fastest growing religion in American prisons because black inmates find it gives them a structure and justification for their hatred of white people and Jews. So now we have a new partnership between angry blacks and Muslims?
Thanks for listening, and any suggestions on how to climb out of my dark hole of cynicism would be welcomed.

Debbie, I apologize for going off on a tangent — I meant to say first that I am sorry about your family and the horrible loss of life there. I know they would be so proud of you for all the work you do to raise awareness about issues that are so important to any civilized society that wishes to remain one. About the self-hating Jews . . . well, they wouldn’t be so proud of that. I wonder, though, if such suicidal Jews have always been among us. Perhaps it is not a new phenomenon at all. As Kohelet says, “there is nothing new under the sun.” Sigh.

AmericanJewess on April 16, 2007 at 10:11 am

I’m often fond of Wiley’s “Non Sequitur” comic strip, but the one you’ve posted, Debbie, hits the proverbial nail on the head in more ways than one: while it’s absolutely accurate for the Nineteen-thirties and forties, it’s just as “right-on” for the Two Thousand, ‘naughts (and beyond) — just substitute the Islamofascists for the Nazis (redundant, I know), and everything else remains the same, as the old saying goes.
Sickening, but true. The same kind of panderers to these evil scum, as well, which is even more sickening. Indeed, I see lots and lots of Chamberlains out there, and precious few Churchills (more’s the pity).

The worst kind of ignorance is the willful varitey, and there’s a fatal epidemic going on right now. Islamofacists are busily plotting our deaths, yet TV is all about Anna Nicole, Brittany, and American idol.
I’m fighting it through letters to the editor. Saturday I had the following letter published in the Calgary Herald in response to an op-ed piece by Barry Rubin on dropping the holocaust in British schools. At least now a few more people are aware of the word “dhimmi” and what it means.
Now it’s YOUR turn. Come on people, write those letters.
Barry Rubinís excellent article about dropping the holocaust from the curriculum should serve as a wake-up call as to where a society can be led if it allows itself to be pulled along by the nose-ring of political correctness. It certainly exposes as empty all the platitudes about learning from history so as to not repeat past mistakes. Itís prophetic (assuming Iím still allowed to use that word when not referring to Mohamed) that Rubin refers to voluntary surrender, because Islam is Arabic for ìsubmissionî or ìsurrenderî (not ìpeaceî, as we are so frequently told).
Thereís another Arabic word we should add to our vocabularies: dhimmi. That refers to a person who has accepted the role of second-class citizen within a Muslim state. Every time we censor or censure ourselves so as not to offend the perpetually offended, we take one more baby-step towards self-imposed dhimmitude.

stevecanuck on April 16, 2007 at 10:49 am

I THINK ONE of the best ways to remember the HolocaustÖwould be to renew one’s diligence against ANY contemporary anti-SemitismÖbecause ìTwo Symbols, Same Dealî is the truest observation of all.
And this timeÖitís not just them (the Jews)Öbut us!
ìTwo Symbols, Same Dealî would make a great, and timely poster or T-shirt etc. for the enlightened masses!

LOST on everyone making pro-Jewish comments here is the teachings of the Torah—Adonai’s ‘chosen’ continuously defied His will EVERY time He told them to final solutionize their enemies!!!
THAT one always confounded me…but the other day i saw a programme on History Channel International (i think) which talked about the Jews’ “choseness”…and it wasn’t because they were favoured by God, but because they were supposed to be a LAMP UNTO THE WORLD.

EminemsRevenge on April 16, 2007 at 3:14 pm

There aren’t enough good muslims to matter. There’s the 10% that will tell you to your face they’re going to eliminate all infidels, and there’s another 80% that are content to bide their time and smile in your face. I hope your husband beats those stinking moose-lims down to the ground when they do that, and I hope the other jews or whites won’t call the cops and will assist him. This has to begin happening, we must stop being allergic to ‘racism’. The reason you can’t find info on crimes against whites without going to anti-jew sources, is because the ‘racists’ are the only ones screaming about it. Tell them to get over the jews, tell them jews have power because they’re smart, they are white people, too. Time to choose sides. Don’t even get me started about the Mexican invasion. (You’ll see on May 5 what ‘diversity’ looks like.)

I remember the first time I was exposed to the holocaust. It was 1989 in my 8th grade English class. My teacher wrote some names on the board, Steven Spielberg, Gene Simmons, Billy Crystal, etc. and asked what all these people had in common. No one knew the answer and she explained they were all Jewish and under the Nazi regime, all would have been targeted for death.
She followed up our lesson by reading “Night” by Elie Wiesel. After that I started reading about the Holocaust and World War II pretty much non-stop until I went to war myself in Iraq. Now I can’t read books about war anymore. While I was stationed in Germany, I went to Dachau, Normandy and passed numerous monuments to WWII and Synagogues that no longer exsist.
All those memories stick with me and I will be sure that my children learn about the Holocaust and the great sacrifices made during WWII. I will not let them be ignorant little Britney Spears wannabes oblivious to the world around them. I will take them on family trips to Auschwitz, Dachau and Normandy. I will not let history die with the Greatest Generation.

There’s this book called “Danny’s Story” it about what happen to the Jews,but the charracters are fake. I’m going to read the whole book to my class (24 chapters) in 5 days.
