WHY DOESN’T EVERYONE JUST LISTEN TO JON STEWART?
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT TIME:
There was an uprising in EVERY SINGLE JEWISH GHETTO before the Jews were moved to the concentration camps.
EVERY SINGLE ONE.
Obviously, they were unsuccessful. (And hey, dickweasel, AR-15s weren’t around until 1959, so yeah, maybe the Jews could’ve fought back, with MAGICAL FUTURE WEAPONS. They also probably could’ve spread the word about the genocide that was happening with Twitter, or escaped the camps on magical flying unicorns. EQUALLY PLAUSIBLE.) But they DID fight back. It turns out that Germany had an IMPERIAL ARMY OF STORMTROOPERS, and the Jews were oppressed and impoverished and could barely afford FOOD, let alone GUNS. A handful of shiny weapons would not have stopped an army. But it sure did help Germany round people up into camps.
But I just want to make sure everyone who follows me is better educated that the fuckwads who come up with “what ifs” involving the Jews fighting back. (Side-eyeing you so hard, Tarantino.)
Because they did. And they died doing so. And for decades afterwards, they were looked down on by people - including THE OTHER JEWS IN FREAKING ISRAEL - who thought they didn’t. So their failure to avoid oppression led to - you guessed it - FURTHER oppression. So maybe - just maybe - we should stop propagating that actively harmful myth?
And that talking head in the first gif is Jewish, so maybe he should learn his own damn history before shooting his fucking mouth off.
