    One Third, ONE THIRD Americans do NOT believe 6 million Jews murdered in Holocaust!

    http://www.newsweek.com/one-third-am...locaust-883513


    Updated | One-third of Americans think “substantially less” than 6 million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust, according to a new survey that highlights a worrying lack of basic knowledge about the World War II-era genocide.

    The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, or Claims Conference, released the findings of its survey to coincide with Holocaust Remembrance Day. They show a notable lack of understanding among Americans, especially millennials, the group said.

    4. That's what I was thinking
    Yes that is what they consider 'facts' and 'proof'. And that kind of 'facts and proof' is what they use to declare President Trump guilty of everything they think he is guilty about. Connect the dots. It's the same number so it must be the same people.

    X is guilty of money laundering. X knows Y who knows Z who has a business relationship with President Trump so therefore it's proof that President Trump has laundered money and should be in jail. And since Y or Z in a Russian it's further "PROOF".

    13. Depends onthe actual poll, the questions, and who is polled.

    If some group polls a backwoods or other low-information area about flying saucers, they will get a lot more affirmative answers than if they polled an Ivy league college.

    Likewise if Newsweek had polled poorly educated or bigoted people, they'd get more "Holocaust doubters" than if they polled an area with more educated people.

    If Newsweek polled Faux "news" viewers, they'd get more believers in "Birtherism" than if they polled MSNBC viewers.

    15. This headline is incredibly misleading, with its implication

    that 1/3 of Americans are Holocaust deniers.

    It sounds like these people are misinformed about history, and the extent of the evil that occurred, and while that is sad commentary in it's own right, it is a very far cry from denying the Holocaust.
    And who "owns" the schools and teaching methods? Right. Liberals. They're too busy teaching social justice and how bad the United States is to teach real history.

    17. I was showing a power point in my class on Thursday

    There were pics of Albert Einstein and Joseph Stalin. I asked the class who they were. No one recognized Einstein and only one person recognized Stalin. Mind you, this was a college class. I feel like I'm losing the ability to communicate with younger students because they don't have a concept of history. Anything before 1990 is old, boring, and inconsequential to them.

    It blows me away that Nazi Germany kept excellent records of whom they killed. All those names, dates, locations; and people still don't believe it. It's a sickness.

    I wonder how many of them don't even know what the Holocaust is?

    Wanna see them put their hands over their ears and say "LALALALLALALALALAL"...? Ask them what the racial/ethnic breakdown is on that.

    Well over a third of Americans can't name the three branches of government. Liberals and their lack of teaching important facts own that fact. Same with the Holocaust. They are more occupied with teaching gender and racial equity.

    1. As some of the repliers have noted, that poll can be incredibly misleading, for a number of reasons. One thing that particularly sticks out for me is that it seems not so much that they doubt the Holocaust happened, but merely that they don't think it's death toll was as high as reported. Still a false conclusion, but not as egregious of one as flat- out denying it happened.
    2. For those who indicated they didn't believe in those death figures, there's one thing the DUmmies seem to be avoiding in order to badmouth conservatives/ Trump- supporters: How many of those who denied the death figure were Muslims?
    Many Muslims (Aka a group whose anti- Semitism rivals if not exceeds that of what you might find on sites like Stormfront) are taught by their parents and religious leaders that the Holocaust never happened at all, and the Jews just made it up for attention/ sympathy. If I remember right, some years ago, Muslim groups in England openly protested against schools teaching their kids about the Holocaust for that reason.

    That was a dangerous post, dangerously close to acknowledging that much of the Holocaust Denial and ignorance reside on college campuses, among the "educated" liberal people DU-folk were touting.

    Note to "Warpy" and "shockey80": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!

    Once I saw that the Southern Poverty Law Center was referenced as a valid source of data in the article the whole thing lost all credibility in my mind
