US Congressman at Auschwitz: "US Military must be 'Invincible' because of Gas Chambers."

US congressman condemned for Auschwitz gas chamber video [Link] July 5, 2017

Officials at Auschwitz have criticised a US congressman for making and voicing a video inside a gas chamber at the former Nazi death camp. The memorial and museum tweeted that the gas chamber was "not a stage" but was a place for mournful silence.

Republican Clay Higgins said in the video that the horrors of the WW2 death camps were the reason why the US military should be "invincible".

Some 1.1 million people, mainly Jews, died at the camp in Nazi-occupied Poland.

Mr Higgins made a five-minute video showing him in different parts of the museum talking about the atrocities in the death camp. At one point, he goes inside a gas chamber and explains how the victims were gassed. "This is why Homeland Security must be squared away, why our military must be invincible," he says.

But the museum responded that it was inappropriate to speak inside the gas chambers. "Everyone has the right to personal reflections. However, inside a former gas chamber, there should be mournful silence. It's not a stage," it tweeted on Tuesday.
To deal with this issue head-on first: There is no logical connection between the gas chambers (even if they were real; they were not) and the current size of the U.S. military budget. Is there? The precise opposite conclusion could just as well be proclaimed and often has been in Europe (i.e., to have a military at all is to already be on the path to Auschwitz).

___________________________________

The lack of logic to his argument has a larger lesson, though:Both sides of the U.S. political spectrum worship at the Holocaust altar and make appeals to it as people have made appeals to the god(s) in past societies. In other words, if you have a position, a belief, you have to first find a way to make it fit the Holocaust narrative. Your opponents, likewise, have to be recast as Hitler.

This is also a classic example, I think, of the Western media pushing ("enforcing") the Holocaust at every possible opportunity.

Consider that this story sits the number-two spot on the BBC World News feed as of this writing. It was published three hours ago.

The other top stories as of this writing:
(1) North Korea missile launch: Trump berates China on trade
(2) US Congressman condemned for Auschwitz gas chamber video
(3) Volvo to phase out traditional engines
(4) Qatar crisis: Saudi Arabia and allies to meet in Cairo
(5) US laptop ban lifted on Emirates and Turkish Airlines
(6) Panama Papers; German 'pays millions' for leaked data
(7) Sweden to hold 'man-free' music festival
(8) Afghan girl roboticists denied US visas

I invite you to make your own judgements on whether this Holocaust soft-news item, involving some obscure U.S. Congressman (one of 435), and some social-media triviality, deserves the number-two spot in the news of our planet (population 7,400,000,000) today or not.

It makes perfect sense in his Marvel comics logic, with America as a self-proclaimed superhero whose divine mission is to save the weak from the murderous clutches of so many supervillains around the world. Sad mentality in someone over 7 years old, but nevertheless so common after that age these days...

When one considers that the purpose of mainstream media is not to inform citizens but to brainwash them into submission and appropriate behavior (ditto for academic history), one doesn't find it abnormal that this info is ranked second. An info doesn't need to be important or even true to be heavily promoted. It only needs to be useful to those who hold power. Perhaps YOU had just misunderstood the real purpose and role of mainstream mass media in our time.

And the meditation visibly required in an alleged Nazi gas chambers doesn't help the case of those who claim that the Holohoax is not a religion.

Obviously one of the many uses of the Holocaust narrative is to be a justification for wars of aggression and crimes against humanity (or in the name of humanity, if you want). But the Auschwitz Museum can't say that clear and loudly officially of course. Now when American Macho Cartoon versions like Clay Higgins jump on that car, something highly preposterous is going to emerge. I'd bet you the Auschwitz Museum und Court Historians quickly realize that this isn't helping their cause, since this is far to crude and blatant and in a kind self-exposing. To reduce damages they'll then make press releases like the above.

Well yes, they don't anyone telling the guy next to them:

'And this absurd stage prop is how Jews were supposedly gassed?'

It's claimed in the official 'holocaust' storyline that the evil Germans 'exterminated' Jews by dumping granules of the pesticide Zyklon-B through four openings / holes for little chimney-like structures that were secured upon the roofs of two gas chambers built alongside crematoriums II & III at Auschwitz/Birkenau.

Taken January/February 1943 where there are no such 'little chimneys' or 'holes'. Note that the little chimneys are claimed to have been ca. 2 feet high. The snow is ca. 2-3 inches high.
According to Auschwitz "expert" Robert Jan Van Pelt (who appeared at the Irving/Lipstadt trial), the insertion columns, which were said to protrude out from the roof, were added as an adaptation in August, 1942.

Notice no such openings / holes exist in the underside of the roof in crematorium no. II, there is no indication that these opening / holes were filled in.

If it can't happen as alleged, then it didn't.
