Florida principal removed over Holocaust remarks

A Florida high school principal is being reassigned for telling a student’s mother that ’not everyone believes the Holocaust happened’. The Palm Beach County school district said that Spanish River High School Principal William Latson will be reassigned to a district job. The district said in a statement that Latson has since apologized.

Only thing in the Western world that is ILLEGAL to question. Hrmmm, strange. You know, it is odd how they attack people who call out their lies, just like with the fake news. Maybe this does merit further investigation.

Former principal Latson was unavailable for further comment as he currently on a round-the-world cruise to prove to himself that the world isn't actually flat.

Well Jesus I mean the scary thing isn’t that a person who denies the holocaust was allowed to teach children. The scary thing is a person so stupid they don’t know that you can’t publicly deny the holocaust was allowed near children period.

To those of you who don’t seem to understand why holocaust denial is such a hot button topic, it’s for two reasons. The first is that by denying that the Holocaust or the details that have been preserved through German documentation, survivor accounts, and countless recovered artefacts and photographs are all lies. This is tantamount to calling all of the families of the victims and survivors perpetrators of a hoax to end all hoaxes. It is to say that our families were not subjected to one of the worst atrocities ever committed by humans against humans. That we are lying about our own history, our own suffering, and it is siding with the people who sought our annihilation. On top of that, denial of an atrocity is the first stage towards the repetition of that atrocity. Those who would claim that the Jews are a secret cabal of global manipulators seeking to control the world are parroting the exact same propaganda that the Nazis promoted in the mid 1930s. There is a reason why we Jews say “Never again.” It’s not because we hope it won’t happen again. It’s because we refuse to allow it to happen again. Genocide begins with the dehumanization of the target group, and the ‘secret Jewish plan to rule the world’ is how Hitler convinced hundreds of millions of people to stand by and do nothing, or even to help him in his Final Solution. All four of my grandparents were Holocaust survivors. I am currently on a Taglit trip in Israel and I visited the Yad Vashem Holocaust museum just yesterday. If you think the Holocaust didn’t happen, or that the reports were exaggerated, you have embraced ignorance. Educate yourself, the evidence is freely available. Going through Yad Vashem and still thinking the story a hoax would be like taking a shuttle to the moon and still believing that the moon landing was fake and that the earth is flat. I don’t care if someone walks up to me on the street and insults my family. I don’t care if you call me a kïke. But when you argue that the Holocaust didn’t happen you are denying the tortuous deaths of 12 million people (6 million Jews and 6 million Christians, Gypsies, and others). That is an evil stance to take. Arguing that people being intolerant of Holocaust denial are intolerant to free speech is a disingenuous argument. Being intolerant to intolerance is not intolerance. Blatant bigotry should not be accepted, nor should calls to violence or the spreading of lies. Holocaust denial is all three. It is the spreading of lies to further an agenda of hatred, and if you do it, you are a bad person, plain and simple. (Edit: why was this comment removed?)

Why is it so critical that everyone pay active homage to an event that occurred going on a century ago?

Just because you're not saying it did happen doesn't mean you're saying that it didn't happen.

A product of the liberal education system is trying to propagate its idiotic notion of social justice and relative values (as in: there's no absolute truth). MSM often claim that if there are 2 sides arguing about any issue, the truth is in between and they tap themselves on the back for being "balanced". This is convenient for lazy ignorant fools, but this case is a proof that it's a wrong assumption.

I still don't understand why it's so controrsial to question a historical event. People have been butchered en masse throughout recorded history, why is this one slaughter immune from query?

“Historians” lie about almost everything so it’s best to not fully believe events unless you saw it for yourself. It’s okay to be skeptical...is it not?

Says in the article that he said he will remain neutral on the factuality of the Holocaust since he's an educator and not in a position to make a case either way. How's that ground for reassignment? Can't wait for the West to cut the legs off its men and then buckle under the weight of its ideological indulgences.
