Stealth Jew-Hate in Middle School

Jews are a great target for Leftist hate.

By this week, the Rialto Unified School District school board outside of Los Angeles was in full damage control, fending off universal opprobrium over a third-quarter English Language Arts argumentative writing/research project given to 2,000 eighth-graders. The breathtakingly ill-conceived assignment asked students to “read and discuss multiple, credible articles on this issue, and write an argumentative essay, based on cited textual evidence, in which you explain whether or not you believe [the Holocaust] was an actual event in history, or merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain wealth.”

Most critics denounced the assignment as absurd on its face, since it asked middle school students, after reading a only handful of brief research essays, to convince a reader that the Holocaust, one of the most documented historical events in modern human history, either happened or did not happen. Even more egregious than the notion that the Shoah might not have even occurred was the statement that, as the instructions for the assignment read, “some people claim the Holocaust is not an actual event, but instead is a propaganda tool.”

Next, they will be asked to write an essay convincing people that the Trade Towers were an inside government job, not Islamic terrorists.

General Eisenhower made the trip to Ohrdruf concentration camp after its liberation because as he put it, "I made the visit deliberately, in order to be in a position to give first-hand evidence of these things if ever, in the future, there develops a tendency to charge these allegations merely to “propaganda.” "

As those who were eyewitnesses to the death camp horrors die off, more and more claims of "propaganda" will arise.

One thing I have noticed about nearly every single person who wants to pretend the holocaust didn't happen is that they also think it was a good idea and want to repeat it.

That should be an indication of their true motives.

This is right out of the muslim playbook. Is anyone surprised this is coming out of the leftists establishment?

We are fast approaching the 1930's again. History will soon repeat itself. And it will be worse this time! But instead of Nazis, you will have liberals and muslims!

The all purpose excuse:

"We're just asking questions."

2:44, spot on!

3:16, actually that time it was Nazis and muslims, this time it will be "progressives" and muslims.

Hey Luke, is it true that you are taking heavy medication for your assortment of mental problems?

You will learn all you need to know about Muslims by observing the company they keep (kept).

The actual point of the assignment - learning to discern fact from fiction on the internet via research - is a good and noble lesson to be learned.

The choice of subject matter to investigate could not be worse.

There is no doubt of the Holocaust and those kids who will be chosen to take the contrarian position will have to go to some really strange sites (and that is being charitable.)

They would have been better with something "lighter" such as "does the Loch Ness monster exist," etc.

Instead, the school stuck their foot in it big time.

Surely this site would support the right of Holocaust deniers to deny - no matter how much we might disagree with them.
It should also support the right of schools to encourage their students to perform research and critical analysis.
Yes, this particular assignment may have been poorly thought-out but the underlying ideas are laudable.

Why should arseholes be allowed to deny the holocaust? This is the one issue where there is no room for denial. It is too well documented and corroborated by all countries involved in WW2 in Europe. Birther theories against Obama are far more credible than any left wing theory against the Jews.
