For Holocaust Remembrance Day: Pat Condell

Pat Condell is a confrontational youtube atheist. His Holocaust Remembrance Day video, below, is confrontational and unforgiving. I don't endorse everything he says or his style, but I think he is demanding that Western Civilization confront a real issue that we are otherwise sidestepping.

  1. I have listened to the video clip.

    I find it ironic that this atheist complains about there being "no morality any more", when it comes to standing up against Islamic anti-Semitism, when it is the atheists (and also many influential Jews) that had played a major role in making moral relativism the norm in western thinking in the last few decades.

    I tend to be sympathetic towards Israel and the right of the Jewish people to have their own homeland. However, as long as Jews continue to attack Poland, I will stay out of conflicts between Muslims and Jews, and I urge Poles to do the same.


Bieganski the Blog exists to further explore the themes of the book Bieganski the Brute Polak Stereotype, Its Role in Polish-Jewish Relations and American Popular Culture.
These themes include the false and damaging stereotype of Poles as brutes who are uniquely hateful and responsible for atrocity, and this stereotype's use in distorting WW II history and all accounts of atrocity.
This blog welcomes comments from readers that address those themes. Off-topic and anti-Semitic posts are likely to be deleted.
