"Well, I see, it's a controversial topic I know very little about, and it seems like a lot of propaganda going around it, so I've decided to study this topic a bit more, try myself to find information about it"

"You piece of shit!"

because giving equal consideration to both the nazi and the jewish perspective on the holocaust is oh so reasonable

this site is going to shit

When the only mainstream source of information other then official CPC is Radio Free Asia, it seems only reasonable to dig into topic yourself and it necessary means to at least consider official reports. Because, if you try to "own" some genocide apologist on a subject, they will throw those reports at you, so you better be familiar with it.

this site is going to shit

From my perspective, the best time on raddle is right now.

EDIT: I've spent several minutes thinking about it, and, yeah, on the other hand, ignorance is a poor excuse in this situation. And "I have no dog in this fight, so I consider both propaganda and counter-propaganda" is a little bit of a shitty way to phrase it.

You don't give any weight to Nazi documents on the Holocaust, like the Wannsee briefing docs or Müller's telegram?

Defasher wrote

All I need is the testimony of the Jewish people who were in the camps, and the nazi documents weren't released by the nazis deliberately, so your point isn't as astute as you think it is. Trusting a genociding state's PR statements on the genocide is not the same as trusting classified documents seized after that state collapses.

That's my point: similar to the China Cables, and the Ürümqi police docs The Intercept got in January.

But you feel the need to listen to their perspective..?

Hopium wrote

You need facts before you make conclusions/judgements/labels.

107a wrote

And you believe the atrocity committers will give you facts about their atrocities?

6

Hopium wrote

First we need to find out what atrocities did or did not happen.

Uh. Have you actually met any other humans?

Hopium wrote

Just because other people are sloppy, that's no reason to be sloppy.

Sorry. Didn't realize we had omniscient posters on raddle.

Read the thread: lots of them here lol!

They know everything in advance without checking any of the facts or evidence.

So I gather you're a proponent of getting facts and evidence from the police and the KKK before condemning them for executing people? And giving equal voice to concentration camp guards as the people they interned?
