Think about it

To everyone giving a bad review based on this host’s Marxist ideology and leftist agenda.... the recent episode is about “holocaust denial.” If you think he is a leftist with an agenda, imagine what he is doing to the holocaust narrative. No matter what he displays as fact, there is absolutely no denying that the holocaust has become a multi billion dollar industry. The holocaust is the foundation of modern history. Do some research yourself and see why the plaque outside Auschwitz had to have it’s number changed. Do some research into how many people have cashed in on the holocaust despite their claims being outright lies. As a matter of fact, one was on Oprah. The story of a couple “meeting” at a concentration camp. The guy made millions and was later found out to be lying. He said “it was real in my mind.” Nobody denies that people died in Europe during WW2. When supply lines to Germany are cut off due to allied bombings, people starve.
