The Holocaust Revisited—An Open Thank You Note to Ed Schultz

Dear Ed,

May I call you Ed? You can certainly call me Roger.

I know you’ve been taking a lot of flak for that Tweet you made the other day — “Gay people were really the ones being persecuted in Hitler’s Germany” — some calling you about as sensitive as Attila the Hun and wondering why NBC Universal would allow such a bizarre personality to represent them in public, sort of like asking Donald Sterling to host their morning show.

And I realize too that you quickly deleted the Tweet after a deluge of responses from normal human beings.

But, even with all that, I just wanted to say thank you, sir, for my family and for myself!

You see you have solved the mystery of why my grandmother’s Uncle Lennie, “the bachelor,” was incinerated at Auschwitz.  Unfortunately, his sexual preference did not appear on ancestor.com.  But now we know.

It’s clear from your writing that Lennie’s Jewish identity would not have been enough, even though, as I’m sure you are aware as a prestigious political commentator at MSNBC, some recent investigators, including a French priest, have asserted that the stratospheric number of Jewish dead could actually be revised upwards.

And then, as you also must know, there are many groups besides Jews who were murdered in the Holocaust, among them Poles, Slavs, Serbs, gypsies, Soviet POWs, some leftists (although the Nazis began as a left-wing party), the mentally and physically disabled and, of course, gays.  Hitler was, in his way, an equal opportunity genocidal maniac.

In Left Think, victims only matter when they're the "right" victims. Of course, perhaps some on the far right do much the same too. But sticking to Left Think, let's do some Left Math.

In Left Math, it is immaterial that six million Jews, and about five million other Nazi "undesirables", including Poles, Romani (Gypsies), non-cooperating citizens of all types, and yes, at most ten thousand homosexuals, were slaughtered in the Holocaust. So this set of numbers yields "Gay people were really the ones being prosecuted in Hitler's Germany."

Obviously, to the uninitiated, we're lacking the proper weighting factor for homosexual victims of the Holocaust.

In Left Math, 1 homosexual = 1,100 other people

Simple answer for Ed's idiot comment. For his viewers (all five of them) Gays are cool and Jews aren't.

On the upside, by focusing the Holocaust on the gays, Holocaust denial will not be tolerated.

Let's look at the number of victims killed by Hitler and the Nazis:

6 Million Jews
3 Million Soviet POWs
2 Million Ethnic Poles
1.5 Million Romani
250K Disabled
200K Freemasons
25K Slovenes
15K Homosexuals
5K Jehovah's Witnesses
7K Spanish Republicans

Yup! They were only after gays!

Schultz was an unthinking conservative. Now he is an unthinking liberal.

There was also at least one Christian group that was persecuted. In Rabbi Weismandel's Min haMeitzar he gives the camp designations; there was a group I think he called "Messianincs" (J. Witnesses?) that had a blue triangle. I think he stated that Jews did not have a special designation; generally they got the black triangle of "undesirables". I'm not sure the latter was true everywhere. They also put real criminals (green triangle, IIRC) there; I trust that being rounded up by the Nazis is not a symbol of purity.

Of course, ONLY Jews had a special designation outside of the camps, something taken from the Christian and Muslim medieval practice of requiring Jews to wear distinctive markings.

Schultz would have been correct if he'd have said that gays were "among" those persecuted in Hitler's Germany. Although Jews were overwhelmingly the most persecuted group, gypsies, mentally and physically disabled, JWs, pacifists, all were persecuted.

Because the corporate ownership of NBCUniversal (Comcast) is a Democrat-aligned rent seeker. MSNBC is a small loss leader that throws a bone to the radical leadership of the Democrats and their looney base.
