(Washington, DC — January 28, 2017) – Donald Trump (R-NY) marked the 72nd anniversary of International Holocaust Remembrance Day in a manner befitting an anti-Semite with neo-Nazi supporters.
He neglected to name the religion of the Holocaust’s most-numerous victims: Jews.
Not only was a reference to the religion missing from his proclamation, but Chancellor Squirrelhead failed to mention the prevalent anti-Semitism which helped drive Nazi German’s “Final Solution” for European Jewry:
- “It is with a heavy heart and somber mind that we remember and honor the victims, survivors, heroes of the Holocaust. It is impossible to fully fathom the depravity and horror inflicted on innocent people by Nazi terror.”
“Those ‘innocent people’ were, by and large, Jews,” said a historian, speaking on condition of anonymity. “You have to figure that Stephen Bannon, Chancellor Squirrelhead’s anti-Semitic Chief Strategist and Senior Counselor, had a hand in excluding any references to either Jews or anti-Semitism on such a somber occasion.
“I’m just surprised that Chancellor Squirrelhead didn’t use the occasion to use the term ‘losers’ to describe the 6,000,000 Jews who died at the hands of the Nazis.”
The proclamation did attempt to end with an uplifting and inspirational tone:
- “In the name of the perished, I pledge to do everything in my power throughout my Presidency, and my life, to ensure that the forces of evil never again defeat the powers of good. Together, we will make love and tolerance prevalent throughout the world.”
And then, having made such a caring and compassionate statement, he banned millions of potential immigrants from entering the United States.
International Holocaust Remembrance Day is commemorated annually on the anniversary of the Soviet liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp at the end of World War II – January 27, 1945 – and seeks to remember the Jews, Gypsies, mentally disabled people, physically disabled people, and homosexuals executed by Nazi Germany.
While a somber occasion for most, there are some who are now happy to have an ally in Chancellor Squirrelhead. Alabama teen Breanna Mitchell can now feel extra-proud about taking that smiling selfie while visiting Auschwitz in June 2014. She posted the photo to her Twitter account with “Selfie in the Auschwitz Concentration Camp” – complete with a red-cheeked smiley-face emoticon – as the caption.
And things are now looking up for Sears. After announcing on January 5 that it would be closing 41 Sears stores and 109 Kmart stores, as well as selling its Craftsman tool brand, Chancellor Squirrelhead has given the store chain new life. Sears chose International Holocaust Remembrance Day to proudly announce it is bringing back a limited edition version of its silver Nazi ring.
“We’re happy to re-issue our signature rings, and we’re sure many people did Nazi it coming,” said a Sears spokesman, speaking on condition of anonymity. “But you can see where we’re Göëring with it!”
