Now That the Holocaust Denial Meeting Is Over...

...can we officially call the people who refuse to accept documented history a bunch of morons?

Listen, there are some uncomfortable truths we humans have to deal with. The rise of slavery. The Spanish Inquisition. William Hung's singing career. But we can't ignore them away, no matter how hard we try.

Take a look at the guest list of this freak show. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of Iran. Ali Akbar Mohtashamipour, one of the founders of Hezbollah. Michele Renouf, an Australian socialite who supports those who don't think the Holocaust happened. And America's favorite bigot, David Duke! Now, let's run this list through the Thomas Lindaman Credibility-Meter.

Racist anti-Jewish nutjob. Racist anti-Jewish nutjob. Racist anti-Jewish nutjob. And racist anti-Jewish nutjob. Great work there, President Imadinnerjacket. The world will be beating a path to your door for your work in providing a completely balanced view of the Holocaust. (By the way, that was sarcasm.)

This reminds me of the UN Summit about racism a few years ago where the UN spent a lot of time bashing Israel (i. e. the "Zionists") for their "racism." They even let PLO leader Yassir Arafat speak without being laughed out the door. Then again, they let Kofi Anan run the UN, so you know they have a sense of humor.

Anyway, there are millions of Jewish survivors of the Holocaust alive today, the tattoos on their arms still visible. I'd love for Duke or Imadinnerjacket to head to the Holocaust Museum and make those statements in public, but they never will. They'll find some out-of-the-way spot of the world so they can have their privacy to be as antisemitic as they want to be and still be protected from anyone who knows more than they do.

Like any fourth grader.
