Holocaust Story Prompts Holocaust Cynicism (Again)

The Huffington Post, for some inexplicable reason, decided to cover a story in the "Style" section about a shirt in Urban Outfitters that the Anti-Defamation League didn't like because they thought a logo on the shirt looked like a Star of David badge:

Not that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things. For some reason this prompted more than 600 comments most of which took two forms: Arguing about whether or not the shirt is offensive and general outrage at the fact that UO is charging more than $100 dollars for a freaking T-shirt.

However there was a certain segment of posters who inevitably showed up to Jew-bait. This was the Huffington Post after all:


  1. "Otto Black".

    A new arrival with only 16 "fans", but IMO, worthy of a closer look.
    A holocaust denier, and deep rooted Jew hater, no doubt.

  2. "What Holocaust?"
