Holocaust Remembrance Day, 2014

The Huffington Post's marking of Holocaust Remembrance Day in the past has been very, very ugly. You can read our coverage in 2013 and 2012 at those links. This time around everything was more placid yet the ugliness remained. The solitary article was buried in the "World" and "Religion" sections:

At the time I am writing this, there are around 20 comments on the page. This is probably due to the Huffington Post's new comment policy. But just like last year, as well as every other article related to the Holocaust ever, the only thing the readership is interested in talking about is how those stupid Jews have made it all about them, as well as other forms of anti-Semitism:

It's pretty amazing that on the marking of an event in which millions died because of anti-Semitism, the Huffington Post gives a platform to the exact same kind of prejudices against Jews. Actually I take that back: it's not amazing at all. It's pretty typical.
