Is there More Sympathy for the Jewish Holocaust than for Slavery?

obama-holocaust

There is an on-going debate about whether or not slavery can match the Nazi holocaust, as measured by the impact that it had on those affected.  A persistent belief is that while one painful experience is remembered with regularity, the other has been rewritten in history, mainly because the government responsible for slavery still remains in power.

These remarks, made by President Obama during a 2012 speech at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, have made rounds on the Internet, mainly because people are wondering how President Obama would compare the Jewish Holocaust with slavery, where more people were affected for a longer period of time.

Read the remarks below and ask yourself:  Does Obama consider slavery to be as traumatic as the holocaust which occurred in Nazi Germany?

“I say this as a President, and I say it as a father. We must tell our children about a crime unique in human history. The one and ONLY Holocaust — six million innocent people — men, women, children, babies — sent to their deaths just for being different, just for being Jewish. We tell them, our children, about the millions of Poles and Catholics and Roma and gay people and so many others who also must never be forgotten. Let us tell our children not only how they died, but also how they lived — as fathers and mothers, and sons and daughters, and brothers and sisters who loved and hoped and dreamed, just like us.” –Barack Obama

    Our holocaust is still going on covertly that’s why its shunned, hush hushed, and frowned upon when you even mention something of the sort today, it’s being rewritten and erased slowly, and guess who we’re the main financiers of our enslavement that propelled America and Europe into the economic powerhouses they are today???? You guessed it right the Jews, don’t take my word for it, just google it…

    These so called jews are FAKE, IMPOSTERS they converted to judaism in the 7 century. They are European khazars Ashkenazi. This is basic info anyone can google khazars to get the info. Anyone who knows true history knows that hitler was a jew also killed blacks as well. Just because they are using white supremacy everyone is fooled. Even the bible says they are fake Revelation 2: 9 I know thu works tribulation and poverty but you are rich and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are jews and are not but the synagogue of satan! which they are. They own everything, banks, tv stations, rap game (which is why all you hear is ghetto sell out music). Lets use some logic how is it that they get israel when the holocaust happened in Europe? it’s like our slavery happened then we like yea um we want China. It’s pure bull. Ok lets look at their claim for israel using the bible. They can’t because they dont believe in the bible they use the Talmud and cabala. They dont even believe in Christ so how is it that they can claim israel based on the bible? Furthermore the people in the bible are black look at christ in revelation 1: 14 hair of wool, feet bronze as if burned in furnaced Yashaya is black. For the people that want to say it doesn’t matter it does matter if it didn’t matter they would never change his color in the first place. Leonardo da Vinci painting the portrait of Christ. Cesar borgia his lover, the 6 pope of rome son a murderer, slept with his sister and that us the portrait our brothers and sisterd are worshiping. Lets look at the other prophets color in scripture song of solomon 1: 5 I am black but comely o yet daughters if jerusalem as the tents of kedar as the curtains of solomon. Jeremiah 14: 2 judah mourneth and the gates therof languish they are black unto the ground and the cry of jerusalem is gone up. The term jew come from ths tribe if judah for short. So how could the jews be white if the tribe if judah is black GTFOH. We are the people of the bible they are our forefathers. The reason why many if our people do not remember but will because we are living in the last days are because of the curses the most high put on our forefathers and us for not following the laws Jeremiah 17: 4 and thou even thyself shalt discontinue from thine heritage that I gave thee and will cause thee to serve thine enemies in the land which thou knowest not for yet have kindled a fire in mine anger which shall burn forever. We are being redeemed by the most high follow the laws until death and we will be in the kingdom shalom brothers and sisters

    Obama is a good politician then because he said what would keep the most peace. He has a large portion of Black people who love him because he is from “us” with no clue as to what his political views are. He got out of the Jeremiah Wright situation without losing any White voters? That takes some smarts! He knows what to say to us where he can upset only enough not to have lost our support for a second term. He made sure not to upset the Jews in this county so he can have a stronger position in Israel. America is “ahistorical” according to my professor and I agree. I learned only about 10 years ago that this country was heavily involved in what Adolf Hitler began to espouse. Ethnic cleansing. He commented on American Slavery and liked what the US had done. He therefore was influenced by the idea of supremacy of one race over another that white people established and benefit from everyday. That was on the history channel and not in any of the schools I have taught at. Never compare the amount of people that have died because of it but always tell the truth about history as much as one can. We do not want to be doomed to repeat slavery of any kind for any group of people.

    Why is anyone suprised? He is not a decendant of slavery so of course he would be more sympathic to the holcaust than slavery.
