I am not sure I quite understand the situation played out in this tweet, but this is a bit of history that’s been coming up more and more often lately, and that’s been confusing for me. People find it important. People are willing to call others hate criminals for saying something unorthodox about the Holocaust. They would get so worked up they would demand that Facebook as a company (and perhaps Twitter as well, and others too) directly intervene and pull down unorthodox utterances about the Holocaust. And why? It is a piece of history. It is like saying that WWII never happened, or happened but in fact claimed fewer lives; or that it was started by the USSR, or that it wasn’t. To quote Hillary, what difference at this point does it make?
It’s up to the society to guard against another genocide; that I can totally get behind. That’s about the present and about the future. But to fight, to actually fight over narratives about the past? That’s just nuts.
