The World Jewish Congress is urging US lawmakers to make studying the Holocaust mandatory in all schools, citing statistics from a 2018 poll revealing that half of millennials can’t name a single Nazi concentration camp. [They can’t name any Communist concentration camps, either, but that is of no apparent concern.] ‘The Never Again Education Act’ proposes making Holocaust education mandatory in every school in the US and would create grants for teachers to teach students about the Holocaust “and the repercussions that hate and intolerance can have on our society.” [We agree that children should be taught that hate and intolerance must be rejected in a just society, but we fear that selective focus on hate and intolerance against only Jewish victims to the exclusion of those in other ethnic groups who have suffered similar fates is likely to miss its stated goal. Without knowledge of the death camps and killing fields of the Soviets, the Red Chinese, the Khmer Rouge of Cambodia, and the torture chambers of Communist Romania and Cuba, children are likely to form a false impression that Jews are the only ones who have suffered from such inhumanity in modern times and that Nazis are the only perpetrators. This false impression also may be used to discourage criticism of the political policies of the Israeli government for fear of being labeled anti-Semitic and condemned on a par with Holocaust criminals. That outcome, in fact, may be the primary motivation behind this proposal.] -GEG
The World Jewish Congress is pushing US lawmakers to make
Holocaust education mandatory in all schools, citing statistics from a
2018 poll revealing half of millennials can’t name a single Nazi
The WJC started a petition calling on Congress to “make Holocaust education mandatory in every school in the United States,” that has garnered 8,500 signatures so far. The petition points to a rise in antisemitism and warns that “the horrors of the Holocaust are fading from our collective memory, especially among millennials.”
It refers to statistics found in the 2018 Holocaust Knowledge and Awareness Study which surveyed 1,350 Americans aged 18 and over and found 49 percent of millennials
and 45 percent of adults couldn’t name a concentration camp or ghetto in
Europe during the Holocaust. It also revealed that 41 percent of
millennials think the number of Jews killed in the Holocaust was two
million or less, rather than six million.
‘The Never Again Education Act’
would create a grant program run by the Department of Education to
provide teachers with training and tools to teach students about the
Holocaust “and the repercussions that hate and intolerance can have on our society.”
59 homicide/aggravated assault convicts and 239 rapists and sex offenders have been released so far this year. The First Step law turns over the power to release prisoners to administrators at the Bureau of Prisons that can release whoever they want to.
When police officers in the city are this vulnerable to attack, no one in the city is safe, especially the public. Democrat New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio has demonized his own police force as ‘racist’ for years, and his policies have neutered them.
Kathy Zhu says that officials of the Miss World America beauty pageant stripped her state title and barred her from national competition because of social media posts, which were taken out of context, that they claimed were racist, Islamophobic, and insensitive.
Georgia state representative, Erica Thomas, tweeted that a white man verbally assaulted her by saying she was “a lazy SOB and to go back to where I came from.” She later lamented in a Facebook video that “People are getting really out of control with this white privilege stuff.” She has since backpedaled her story.
Several of the resolutions that did pass include the fundamental right to abortion under Roe v. Wade and teaching the concept of ‘white fragility’ (which they explain is produced by white supremacy culture), and other leftist causes.
The Florida Department of Health is charging McCarthy with violating state law by lying about being a doctor, under the state’s unlicensed activity statutes. She said, “I wanted to be somebody in the community, and I’m sorry.”
George Nader has now been indicted on multiple charges of importing child pornography into the US in 2018. FBI agents found dozens of child-porn videos on Nader’s phones, with some depicting children as young as 3 years old.
Democrat Senator Cory Booker introduced legislation that would allow anyone in prison for more than 10 years to petition for release — thus, requiring the state to prove its case all over again!

Her crime appears to be only that, after ten years of asking authorities for proof that there actually were six-million executions in the Nazi prison camps, and never receiving any response to her request, she concluded that the Holocaust story was a politically motivated myth. For holding this opinion, she has been imprisoned. What do you think? In a free society, even if Haverbeck were a believer in the Nazi collectivist ideology or, for that matter, in the Communist collectivist ideology, should that be the basis for punishment by the state?
Monika Schaefer, a woman from Alberta, Canada, was arrested in Germany, a country that forbids questioning the Holocaust, and is facing a 5-year prison term. The Jewish group, B’nai Brith, filed complaints with German officials against Schaefer because she committed “anti-Semitic incitement.” This was because Schaefer had made a video in 2016 entitled ‘Sorry Mom, I Was Wrong about the Holocaust.” In the video (click on link), she says she regrets reproaching her German mother for not doing something to stop the death camps.
