Your Belated Holocaust Cynicism/Denial/Hate

Two weeks ago, as you probably remember, was Holocaust Remembrance Day internationally, and the Huffington Post readership marked it in their usual way. We didn't comment on it at the time but Rabbi Yitzchak Schochet wrote an article in the Huffington Post's "Religion" section about why the remembrance day should not have happened. Controversial title right? You can check out the article for yourself but that's almost besides the point as the Huffington Post readership responded in the same way: Holocaust cynicism, Holocaust denial, Holocaust minimization, conflation of all Jews and Israel, personal attacks on the author, and so on and so forth. With only two pages, it was almost a one to one ratio of "trolling" comments versus not trolling comments. Here are some examples.

Some things on the Huffington Post never change.

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.
