Everybody has the right to question an information. The funny thing is that we comply with the main motto in this forum which is to Deny Ignorance
and we selfs are the first to show the dumbest ignorance ever. Do I question the 6 million figure? YES !!! Do I have the right to do that without
being called a denier, a Nazi, a racist. a antijew, antisemitic...blah blah blah? YES and YES again.
Thats a good point, this is a conspiracy site and the very basis of that idea is to take closer looks at official stories both in the present and in
the past to see if there are any inconsistencies in the stories or to find possible reasons why something would be orchestrated and who would benefit
from a staged event, like people theorize about 9/11
It seems like that for every incident thats ever happened, there will always be someone that believes it happened differently or didnt happen at all
and for the most part that isnt a problem.
Never have I seen topic or event that stirs so much emotion than Hitler and the concentration camps does.
From a conspiracy standpoint people want this topic off-limits or at the very least, handled with silk, fur lined gloves.
Anyone that dares interpret the historical records differently than the mainstream norm, risk being called a racist, a nazi or any number of other
buzz words to try and immediately discredit them.
Hell there are people on this board that are even prevented from discussing this topic in a certain way, due to the laws of the country they may live
To have a differing opinion on the holocaust or to interpret the evidence differently than others or to even argue the 6 million number is to high
does not make that person a racist.
Why is saying this acceptable. "Theres no way in hell 1 million Rwandans died over the last 20 years , id put the number closer to, say 600k."
And saying this is not. "The number of jews killed during WW2 is said to be about 6 million, that number seems a bit inflated and I would put the
numbers closer to 2.5 to 3 million" (These were just examples)
Here at ATS, some would label that comment as racist, however, in some European countries, that comment is illegal and could land you in prison.
If the US passed a law that made it illegal to question the 9/11 commissions official ruling and also made it a crime to say, i believe that 1900
people died, instead of the official 2990, people would be literally up in arms.
To me, there should be no difference, whether its questioning 9/11 or questioning Nazi Atrocities during WW2, its our right to ask questions, its our
right to be skeptical.
When they try to FORCE a person to have a certain opinion, theyre just complicating the issue even more.
