MSNBC loudmouth Ed Schultz is no stranger to controversy. Though the liberal often earns the ire of conservatives for his inflammatory remarks, Schultz offered on Monday a very disturbing view of history when he tweeted that homosexuals, not Jews, were the true victims of Hitler’s holocaust.
The actual tweet has been deleted.
Schultz’ revisionism for the sake of pandering to homosexual activists is simply nauseating. While it is certainly true that Hitler’s genocidal regime did target homosexuals, to trivialize the persecution of the Jews is both insensitive and shocking.
An estimated 6 million Jews were murdered during the holocaust. Another 5 million were murdered- these people consisted of homosexuals, blacks, gypsies, mentally and physically disabled and various others who were considered enemies of the state.
Though it is important to remain mindful that the holocaust was not exclusively an elimination of Jews and honor all the victim’s of Hitler’s regime, for Schultz to purposefully skew history in this way is unacceptable and, frankly, too-closely akin to holocaust denial.
The question now is: Will the left call Schultz on his behavior? Or will they sweep it under the rug as they so often do for liberals?
