In an opinion commentary published on the CBC’s website entitled: “Censorship is patronizing. Always has been, always will be”: Neil Macdonald writes that “From trying to silence Holocaust deniers to shouting down Richard Spencer: censorship never changes.”
In his polemic, Macdonald states the following:
“I had heard just about every argument made by Holocaust deniers, and yet none of it had had the slightest impact: I still believed, as I do now, that the Holocaust happened.”
Importantly, the Holocaust and the murder of six million Jews is an undisputed fact and well documented part of history . We don’t just “believe” it happened, we know it did.
People may “believe” in Santa Clause and the Tooth Fairy, not the Holocaust!
