The Daily Cougar at the University of Houston regrets, and even apologies, for having published an ad that asks for the name of one person, “with proof,” who was killed in a gas chamber at Auschwitz. The Cougar argues that to ask such a question is “misleading,” “flawed,” “calculating,” “manipulative,” anti-semitic” and is addressed to a “vulnerable audience.” Does that include the academics at U Houston? Poor babies.
Here is a second question we can put to the U Houston professors about the Jewish “Holocaust.”
During WWII – speaking of the German and American states only -- there was the National Socialist German Worker’s Party on the one hand, and the bi-partisan alliance of the Democrat/Republican parties on the other.
The German State is accused of using WMD (gas chambers) to murder innocent civilians by the hundreds of thousands, if not millions, and it is considered uniquely monstrous because of that. At the same time the existence of the German WMD is being questioned in almost every country in the West and throughout the Muslim world.
The American State, governed by a by-partisan Democrat/Republican alliance, used WMD (great fleets of heavy bombers) to intentionally murder hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians in all the major cities in Germany and Japan, ending with the nuclear Holocausts of Nagasaki and Hiroshima.
No one – no one anywhere in the world -- questions the use of WMD for the mass murder of civilians in WWII by Americans.
Yet those who served the German State are uniquely monstrous, while those who served the American State in that war came to be called “the Greatest Generation.” Do the editors of The Daily Cougar understand the implications of this simple observation? Do their professors?
Should we hold Germans to one standard of morality, while we hold ourselves to a different, lower one?
To those of you who work on The Daily Cougar who plan on becoming serious journalists, I would encourage you to encourage a free exchange of ideas everywhere, even on the Holocaust question. A free exchange of ideas is either there for all of us, or it is not there.
That does not mean that you have to publish what is not civil. The most radical ideas can be presented in a civil manner, unlike some of those presented here.
