[Marxism] More idiocy from Iran

Questioning the public record on Nazi extermination
campaigns ultimately rests on two arguments: 
there's a conspiracy to make Hitler look bad, and/or 
a secret plot to make people feel sorry for 
undeserving Jews, in order to enhance the power 
of the latter at the expense of everyone else.

The second explanation is always popular with 
nationalists who feel threatened by class consciousness. 
Except Jewish nationalists, of course -- they just turn the 
formula inside out: from the Jews vs. everybody to 
everybody vs. the Jews; or demonize some other 
nationality. But the goal is the same.

Don't betray yourselves, comrades. ey
