Holocaust Baiting of the Day

We've commented before on the Huffington Post's love of Nazi-related articles, to the point where they publish one almost on a daily basis. And it's inevitable that somewhere within those articles someone will accuse Israel of acting like the Nazis, or say that Jews should just "get over it," or say that people are exploiting the Holocaust or that it's "not such a big deal," or any of the other variations of Holocaust cynicism that we have cataloged over the years. I have a feeling that the Huffington Post editors publish these articles specifically to get their anti-Semitic readership's blood boiling. We have a couple examples of that today, to show to you that no Holocaust related article is free of grotesque remarks and moderators that ignore them.

Let us begin with a nice story about a Holocaust survivor reuniting with his rescuer in both of their old ages. Naturally the readership was mostly civil, but haters still managed to get through:

As you can see, quite a lot of people shared his views. Next, the Huffington Post marked World Kindertransport Day, which is apparently a thing, marking Jewish children who were saved from the Holocaust before it even began. There were very few comments on the article but a good half of them were Holocaust cynicism or baiting:

As always, Huffington Post approved.
