An article that won’t age well

It’s going to be hilarious to see the Holocaustians do a complete 180 as soon as the conclusive evidence for Democratic election fraud is accepted as proven by the mainstream, given the historical equivalence presented in this Washington Post article:

Scoff. That’s what we did years ago when we each first heard about Holocaust denial, as a Holocaust historian and the child of a survivor, respectively. Dismissing it as the historical equivalent of flat-Earth theory, we reassured ourselves that the Holocaust has the painful distinction of being the best-documented genocide in the world. Who could claim it did not happen? But we soon discovered we were wrong to laugh at it, as the falsehood crept into classrooms, books and even international relations. We have learned — the hard way — to take it seriously.

That is why in recent weeks we have watched with alarm the birth of another powerful disinformation mythology: the false conviction pushed by President Trump and his enablers that the 2020 U.S. presidential election was stolen.

We had wondered whether the definitive vote of the electoral college and the declaration by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) that Joe Biden was the president-elect might provide a final end to Trump’s electoral fraud fantasies. But he has instead redoubled his dangerous disinformation crusade, reportedly even probing the use of the military to further his bizarre theory that the election was stolen.

Call it democracy denial. As students of history, we do not make this comparison lightly.

Consider their implied metric: if the reported results of the 2020 U.S. presidential election were fraudulent, then the Holocaust never happened. I wonder how many Holocaustians are willing to take that bet today?
