The Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center in Maitland, Florida has temporarily rebranded itself as a “George Floyd Memorial Exhibit,” according to local news reports. It features photos of people who attended some of the first vigils and protests over Floyd’s death this summer in Minnesota.
Yes, you read that right. A Holocaust museum and memorial is catering to the Black Lives Matter movement, a movement that has consistently harbored anti-semites or anti-jewish political activists. And yes, by allowing their space to be used as an exhibit hall for George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement, The Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center is basically saying that George Floyd and the millions of victims of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime are somehow similar or comparable.
Jewish conservative journalist Laura Loomer, who just ran for office in Florida’s 21st congressional district, which happens to be the most Jewish district in the nation, called “dangerous” and “outrageously tone def.”
“For the Holocaust Memorial in Maitland, Florida to re-purpose itself as a George Floyd memorial is abhorrent. The Black Lives Matter movement is notoriously Anti-Zionist and Anti-Jew. Elevating a movement that openly calls for the destruction of Israel and the targeting of the Jewish people is extremely dangerous. To compare the systematic murder of millions of Jews to the death of George Floyd is hurtful and outrageously tone def.”
This is so twisted I don’t even know what to say. . . https://t.co/5ZjHuy09JM

While any death is tragic, the fact that the Holocaust Memorial and Education Center is using their platform to promote and celebrate the Black Lives Movement has to be one of the biggest examples yet of how unaware or unfazed many Jewish people are about the rabid antisemitism within the Black Lives Matter and progressive movement across America.
Rampant censorship of content and evidence exposing the hate for Israel and Jewish people in general has no doubt left many people in the dark. This is why we must all do our part in educating our family and friends about the hatred directed at Jews by Black Lives Matter and the Democrat party. Laura Loomer, who is quoted in this article, is the most censored woman in the world in part for her warning to the Jewish community about progressives like Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and others who openly and proudly display their antisemitism.
Silence is complicity and apathy is acceptance of this Orwellian “new normal” we have found ourselves in. Do your part, stand up and fight back.
