I don't see you citing proof for all of your ludicrous statements. I don't have the time or the desire to add footnotes and links to backup every sentence that I type. I was just giving my opinion of an essay you provided a link to. Since you just blurted out a random essay that was totally unrelated to the thread's topic, I figured you wanted a review, so I gave one.


No I don't want your review and I don't want your empty assertions.

Even then, there's the combined numbers of Jewish Holocaust survivors and supposed deaths was something like 300% higher than pre-WWII reported Jewish population in Nazi controlled Europe. And MANY Jews fled.

So, what I imagine is that you are right, there was a little bit of under-reporting prior to the war, then the Allied Nations fudged the numbers of deaths to justify involvement in the war, and THEN, many non-Jewish people and Jews who had fled or were never in Nazi controlled Europe to begin with, all made reparations claims as survivors. Of course, the Allied Nations aren't going to squabble about it, because it helps build their case.

That's all I'm saying.

Are you lot saying that it happened but not in the mass numbers reported or that it did not happen at all? My Great grandmother is a holocaust survivor. Its something that touches a bit home to me. I wasn't raised jewish so I don't self identify as Jewish. But I know my grandmother did. I know she had numbers tattooed into her arms and I don't believe her to be a liar. I know that she had a sister killed by Nazi soldiers simply for being Jewish. She had a young brother that was most likely killed as well as parents whom she never saw again. Alive or dead.

Do you think her story is a lie or created by governments in order to justify a war?

Feel free to keep talking out of your posterior. Just keep going at it- Maybe someday you'll know what it means to back up your own statements!

His success or failure as President will prove whether or not he was right or wrong.


The problem is that by the time his policies start really taking hold, he'll be leaving office. By that point, we'll be sick of the bullshit from Obama's administration, thinking it was from the Trump's, and we'll flop to Democratic again. Just like how Bill Clinton got to get credit for a booming economy he had nothing to do with, just like Bush was blamed for the problems arising from his administration, just like Obama got the blame and the credit for shit that was the result of the Bush (2nd) administration, and just like the next president will get the same for Trump's actions.

At some point, we're really going to have to start understanding cause and effect, and how long it takes for many policies to have impact, or else neither side is actually ever figure out what really works and what doesn't.


Good point, while we can get a general idea of whether or not a policy is good for us or not a while after it has been enacted, people start debating how much of an influence said policy had on the economy compared to other policies and factors.

Problem with what you said though is that each political faction has an agenda. Instead of evaluating things scientifically most sides argue a position based on whether or not it fits in their political ideology's box.

Take minimum wage for an example: Libertarians want to abolish it on philosophical grounds, far left liberals want to raise it until the end of time, but the average moderate just wants a wage floor that creates the strongest economy and that data should be what drives it.

It's too bad politics in general has devolved until a shouting argument where neither side wants to listen to one another. Therefore, I feel that resolving political issues (at least economic ones) with the type of thinking you are proposing is impossible in this current toxic environment.

The most we can do is derail his most harmful policies through civil disobedience. It took suffragists a long, long time to get the right to vote, and they were disdained heavily. This will take a lot of perseverance. Possibly decades worth, but this is how Americans have achieved their rights since the Boston Tea Party so long ago.

All i see is Trump talking about uniting and unifying everyone and talking about the importance of working together.
Where do all these racisim claims even come from??? Ok so SOME of his supporters are racist. Why dose Trump cop the blame for their actions?
So Trump wants to stop illegal immigration and doesn't want America to get flooded with Muslims? how is that racist???
He wants to keep America safe and he wants to look out for Americans and make America a better place, why is it considered racist to put your own country first? But only for white countires or countires with a white leader.
Shits ridiculous. People need to stop being spoon fed by the main stream media and believing all the propaganda.
So, have all Mexicans and Muslims been deported yet? Are all blacks back in chains? have women been stripped of all of their rights? I mean this is the sort of reacations i have been seeing. Americans are crazy. Well, left wing nut jobs across the entire western world are. Puppets and sheep.


Ignoring his double-speak, Mexicans are rapists/criminals/murderers/job-stealers/drug-dealers, Evil Muslims, mass-deportations, general nativist fear-mongering, and rhetoric that has been widely used against certain minority groups (Jews, blacks, but nothing surprising coming from Breitbart). And, Mike Pence whose views on abortion and LGBT rights are, well, deplorable. Not that A cis-gendered and straight population will notice it, because they're afraid of a non-existing and rampant violent crime increase. And, those evil, evil foreigners making America terrible, which has been targeted against peoples such as the Irish, Italians, Latinos, et cetera new guys. And, the nativism of it all made no one's life better. Good job! You're officially wearing blinders...

Oh, I'm pretty sure that the Holocaust happened. My point was 2 things: Play devil's advocate and point out that the facts aren't at all matching up.

As I said somewhere else, there are a few reasons I think the numbers are off. One of those is Allied Nations fudging them slightly to better justify the involvement in the war and the dropping of the atomic bomb.

I was more or less presenting these arguments because I find it harder to believe people just go along with what they are told and insult anyone who doesn't than that people actually question things. Questioning Holocaust facts is only really 'bad' because it is the Holocaust. It makes you racist.... or supposedly. Just like saying that the Civil war wasn't about slavery will get you called a racist.

Me? Call me a racist. I like my truth, and sometimes that truth is much less balls crazy than we're told it is. Time and time again, the victors demonize the losers in war, and any sympathizers, too. We know it. We've seen it. We're still seeing it. Yet, we're willing to keep buying into it blindly, as long as we aren't accused of bigotry.

Personally? Fuck that noise.

Go for it.

If I get jumped walking down the street for being white, with the assumption that I'm a racist, someone's getting shot in the face.
