  1. Your lies can't hold up . . . This blood libel seems more and more ridiculous every day. Time to stop allowing the perpetrators of the 20th century to masquerade themselves as its victims.

  2. For a balanced report next one should be about a Palestinian Exhibit of their own "Holocaust" happening now to them. Both Jews and Palestinians deserve to live in peace not just one of them.

  3. What a bs commentar

  4. White Supremacists are the Enemy of America and all Humanity. They Worship Satan.
    Diversity is America's Greatest Strength. Sadly, Filthy Racists Disagree.
    There are absolutely no good Nazis. Never has been, never will be.
    Like Traitorous, Racist, Un Christian Confederates. We need to tear down and melt down every last statue honoring Slave Masters.

  5. Let's never forget it was the communist jews in Germany that started WWII with their Boycotting German goods. True history.

  6. HITLER was a SOCIALIST
    SOCIALISM KILLS
