The whole convo is really idiotic because it's historically documented in print, film and in person as I've personally known people that barely escaped with their lives.
That's like saying 9/11 didn't happen when I know people that were in NY and watched it happen, just like I did on live TV.
Just like the morons that claim the moon landing never happened because you couldn't see stars in the background, what part of 1/125s shutter speed don't they understand as a fast shutter speed won't register those stars.
Just like the morons that think the (K) on products which is a Kosher symbol ran around in the 90s claiming Snapple was Klan endorsed with that (K).
How about the morons that claim humans were too stupid to come up with PI (3.141) several thousand years ago, which is an obvious math constant, that claim aliens helped humans with their math lessons.
Stupidity is what it is and you can't argue with stupid people once they believe something is true regardless of the actual facts.
If you deny the truth, especially when it's an absolute truth, it's more mental illness than anything else and should be treated as such, just like any other mental misfire on the fringe.
Just because the mental illness happens to manifest itself in antisemitism or any other form of racism or hatred doesn't make the illness any less than the disease it is.
Now for a fun fact, being anti-Semite or anti-Semitic isn't specifically anti-Jewish and the way I originally heard the term anti-Semite defined was anti-Arab.
The term Semite means a member of any of various ancient and modern Semitic-speaking peoples originating in southwestern Asia, including Akkadians, Canaanites, Phoenicians, Hebrews, Arabs, and Ethiopian Semites.
Knowledge is a dangerous thing.
Lack of it makes people look stupid as a stump.
