UK: Outrage as students at NUS Conference argue against commemorating the Holocaust

The National Union of Students caused widespread outrage on Wednesday after students applauded motions not to commemorate the Holocaust, because doing so isn’t ‘inclusive’.

The motion to remember the Holocaust ended up passing, but some argued it shouldn’t have even been an issue at conference – and that the arguments against commemorating the event were ‘anti-Semitic’.

It’s not shocking that the debate occurred, this sort of thing is now common, I’m shocked it didn’t pass.

    Oh no, it’s not inclusive!

    Give it a decade or two, you campus retards… Once the islamists have had their way with you, you’ll no longer feel like you’re culturally appropriating survival of genocide.

    Apparently, there is some reservoir of decency in Britain.

      I don’t want to name names, but SOMEONE has been defecating in that reservoir.

  • Oh.

    Are these students willing to commemorate the disabled, gays and Christian clergy murdered by the Nazis, too?

    A pleasant Pesach to all y’all, by the way.

    The students would however vote for celebrating the Holocaust instead. May not a single one of them ever be accepted as an immigrant here when they have to flee for their own skin.

    Holocaust denial will be commonly accepted as historical fact on college campuses soon. Moreover when they ‘teach’ ‘history’ the narrative will be that the US was the aggressor in WW2 and only won through genocide, that is, the ‘wrong’ side lost.

    Figure 2 years, tops.

  • So can I stop recognizing MLK Day? That isn’t inclusive either.

  • The good news is that these morons will be the first ones cut down by the Islamists.

    In fairness, I do think there is too much emphasis put on the Jewish Holocaust. Gays also died in WW2 as part of the final solution. There have been other holocausts around the world.Perhaps that’s what the students were expressing.

      You don’t say, Andy.
