How the Huffington Post Honors Holocaust Remembrance Day

The Huffington Post covered a story about Holocaust Remembrance Day (also known as Yom Ha Shoah) being marked in Israel, providing much information about it. The headline picture is somewhat questionable:

A big picture of Bibi? Really? But that's not what I wanted to draw your attention to.

The thread is fully moderated, let take a look at what remains undeleted after a full half hour:



Just when I thought I had seen everything the Huffington Post had to offer, we see the most blatant example of Holocaust denial and anti-Semitism one could possibly ask for. But don't worry, more Holocaust denial was to come:


You may remember "Flag of Byzantium" from this thread in which a blatantly anti-Semitic comment of his received 16 favorites. Apparently this was not a ban-worthy offensive.

And if that wasn't bad enough, more Holocaust cynicism appeared elsewhere in the 8 comment strong thread, including the very first comment posted. Be sure to note the favorites as well:






The Jew bashing and Israel bashing never stops. Not even on Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Welcome to the Huffington Post.

  1. It's pretty sickening to read those posts. It displays how antisemitism is alive and kicking in world today. These same people however would deny their antisemitic and that antisemitism exists, contradicting their own attitudes and beliefs. They and some of the Pal'n supporters, don't want the world to share any sympathetic emotions with Jewish people. They feel threatened by this. Instead they want to deflect and attack Israel with all tropes they spew with such relentless vitriol. They can't bare the thought of Non Jews aligning themselves with Jewish people. That's why they try to discount the holocaust &/or change the subject. I also see trend on H.P. whenever a poster end's up posting a rabid antisemitic comment, it's preceded or followed by a annotation that Jew's abuse the word antisemitism and expect such a reaction some even going as far as redefining what antisemitism is in their deranged minds in order to deflect criticism in advance. Those deniers demonstrate why they are the scums of the earth.

  2. I'm sure they just got their calendar mixed up. TODAY is Hitler's B'Day.

Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
