A lecturer at Bristol University had the audacity to suggest that Jews should stop “privileging” the Holocaust.The university say they are now “actively looking into this matter”.

Quote

Sir Eric Pickles MP, who is the UK’s special envoy on post-Holocaust issues and a former Conservative Party chairman,claimed it is “one of the worst cases of Holocaust denial” he has seen in recent years, adding that she should “consider her position” at the university.

OMG you can’t make this stuff up. Could these few sentences cost someone their career and reputation?

But does she have a good point?

Quote

She claims that the Holocaust is “available to manipulation by governmental elites, aiming to promote the narrative most likely to underwrite their claims to sovereignty.”

Dr Gould goes on to say that casting the Holocaust as a “holy event” allows it to be used as a tool by the state of Israel to “whitewash its crimes”.
