Brazil: German Embassy Triggers "holocaust" Debate

Postby Hannover » 1 week 5 days ago (Sun Oct 07, 2018 11:56 am)

The Usual Enemies of Free Speech are in denial of the fact that the impossible '6M Jews, 5M others, & gas chambers' is being brought down.
The debate is everywhere and is not going to stop because supremacist Jews / Zionists and their shills don't like it. The cat is truly out of the bag.
excerpt:
"The Holocaust is a historical fact, with proof and testimony that can be found in many parts of Europe," the embassy wrote in response to one post.

LOL
So is that why much of Europe bans free speech about it? Only lies require laws against free speech for protection.

Notice how the included video is added in an attempt to no doubt blame the museum fire on 'neo-Nazis'.
Read on.

Brazil: German embassy triggers bizarre Nazi and Holocaust debate

Brazilians flooded the German Embassy's Facebook to dispute that Nazis were right wing. The controversy showcased the sharp polarization that has consumed the country ahead of the upcoming presidential election.

'Holofraud'

Many Brazilians were enraged by the assertion that the Nazi party was a right-wing movement, pointing to its official name, the National Socialist German Workers' Party, as evidence that it was leftist instead.

Other commenters questioned the validity of the Holocaust, where approximately 6 million Jews lost their lives. Brazilian Holocaust deniers took to the post to label the event a "holofraud," which prompted the German embassy to respond.

"The Holocaust is a historical fact, with proof and testimony that can be found in many parts of Europe," the embassy wrote in response to one post.

The 'socialism' in Nazi

Political Scientist Kai Michael Kenkel, who teaches at the Catholic University in Rio de Janerio, told DW that the practice of classifying the Nazi's "National Socialism" as a leftist movement had become more and more common in recent years within Brazil's right wing movement.

Their notion is that "National Socialism" was a leftist movement because it includes the word "socialism." Kenkel said this connection between Nazis and socialism is akin to saying that the East German Democratic Republic and the People's Democratic Republic of Korea were indeed democracies.

Another argument plays on the statist economic policies of the Nazi regime, but this was also a practice of standard right-wing regimes, such as Spain under Franco and Brazil's own military dictatorship from 1964 to 1985.

A highly polarized country

With the episode, the German embassy got caught in the climate of high polarization that has enveloped the South American nation, with presidential elections looming large. The vote has been marred by voter disillusionment, concerns about fake news, extreme political rhetoric and even an assassination attempt against right-wing candidate Jair Bolsonaro.

Critics have labeled Bolsonaro a Nazi for his far-right nationalist tendencies, and many of the outraged commenters on the German embassy's post were supporters of the former military man.

His rival Fernando Haddad is the successor of jailed leftist former president Luiz Inacio 'Lula' da Silva and Dilma Rousseff, who's also under investigation. Lula and Bolsonaro are either loved or despised. This year's election cycle has been among the most divisive in the three decades of Brazilian democracy.


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

What is not mentioned in the article is that Right-Center Presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro is the new bugaboo of the New York Times ("A far-right candidate who has spoken fondly of Brazil’s onetime military dictatorship") and the Left-wing of Europe. The infamous Heiko Maas, now German Foreign Minister is using the Holocaust Myth to bash Bolsonaro.

BTW Mr. Bolsonaro won 46% of the vote in the first round of elections.
