I read it but I took the " marks as meaning sarcasm.
(I over looked it because that's how little I care. It's just not important to me, who all and how many peopled died in WWII, we have got two ongoing present wars right now. Lots of people died, many in far greater number than the jews, and no matter what the Brits had no right to give away Palestine, and for Israel to shield itself form what it does by pointing to WWII would be like me killing a white guy and pointing to the genocide of Natives as an excuse. All I find interesting is WHY the Jewish deaths got so much importance over everyone else who died. And my belief is what I said earlier, the focus is needed there to avoid all the other things the allies did because they killed just as many innocent people (more really) as the Nazis. Thus if there is some lying going on, there is motive. and it's not by "the jews" it's by Western imperialist propaganda, the west never really ended colonization or got away from it)
So it looked like they were saying oh you think we made a mistake but we didn't.
They were shooting down the notion that 4 million was a widely held view. And it wasn't a widely held view as they say, if by widely held view you mean the people doing the stats and history. But that's not the claim really. It's not what HD have beef with. It was/is a widely held view by the general public that 4 million died in one camp. Every school kid in America will quote you the 6 million dead figure for the Jews and not know any other death stats not even for Americans. And to get that figure you need a few million more dead in the camps not liberated by the allies. Or so the HD say.
means the whole English speaking world because it's all taught the same bullshit. No one showed me the deaths in other places in a WWII class. I had to learn about India by specifically studying its history and getting its story. Same for Russia, Japan, Ukraine, etc. And yet I'd been to the Holocaust Museum as a 5th grade field trip and seen probably 12 films on it in school before 8th grade. Not a one about Bengal.
And when it came time to talk about dropping the H-bomb it was framed like some even debate and then spun into the we were saving lives by killing people crap. Never got any film on THAT museum though. I did finally get to physically go on my own however at like age 27.
Chomsky derided the British for what they did during WW2, as have others
Well I like him for that, but He is hardly someone taught in high schools or someone mainstream. He's counter to the main stream of education in America. A lot of people have written the truth. But they don't control text books and films. Aside from the self educated and those few with good teachers, the bulk of society in the Western World are taught Hitler is Evil itself and the Allies were the good guys.
The claim isn't that no one as in absolutely no one has ever said x. It just means that it's not what's being taught. And it's not some minor thing to avoid either. It has to be intentional to avoid events of that magnitude.
2) They claim 12 million people died. Not all Jews.
(The) Holocaust in total didn't kill 6 million people much less 12 million people. And they worded it suffered and died not suffered or died so they can't just say suffered. And it refers to Jews. Everyone else who was burned is added as a side note like oh yeah and such and such too. Some even ignorantly say Gypsies..
If they mean the war then they need to spike that number up to 75 million.
Ernst Zundel is a Nazi so what. Fuck him. How did he get to become the face of it? The Zionist front group the National Alliance? I'd never even heard of that ass hole until the prothink tards came in here bitching about him one time. David Cole is more of a front liner in HD and no he's not a Nazi. And is Ernst Zundel really a Nazi or is that a Wiki fact? I'm just going to assume he is because his name was chosen to go on that page. But I haven't bother to see if it's true because that is how little I care.
Framing HD folks as Nazis is just as bad as framing Anti-Lincoln folks as racist to black people. There probably are some anti-"yankee" folks who actually do hate black people. But that still doesn't change what Lincoln did.
Or people saying you hate Jews if you criticize Israel. What's true is true regardless of who says it. Israel is fascist and if David Duke agrees with me about that, then for once he's right about something but I want nothing to do with him.
Even if the majority of people saying something were racist or whatever it still doesn't make it automatically wrong. A lot of racist people are against affirmative action too. that doesn't mean affirmative action is a fair thing at least not based on only those reasons.
