“Survivors of the Holocaust are entitled to feelings that are irrational, their anguish entitles them to positions that others would categorise as irrational or bigoted.”
Foxman attempts to make the serious argument that because someone has endured unspeakable horror this entitles them to be a racist.
But does it?
What possible reasoning can justify such nonsense?
Is morality so relative that it is imperative only for those who have not survived a trauma like 9/11 or the Holocaust?
And if survivors are permitted to be bigots, what level of suffering is required?
And why can’t anyone who has suffered anything at all come along and claim Abe Foxman said it was OK to be a bigot because I suffered as much as people who survived 9/11?
