Holocaust Denial

As Iran’s conference of Holocaust revisionists and denialists gets under way, I’m left, like Spencer confused as to why people who don’t like the Jews are so enthusiastic about this sort of enterprise. Shouldn’t Adolf Hitler be a hero to these people, and his mass-murders be celebrated as the best anyone’s ever done at wiping the Jews off the planet? I suppose you can’t really expect deranged people to make a ton of sense, but I’m still left baffled.

On a policy front, note that even while wallowing in repugnance at this conference Ahmadenijad’s anti-Israel bluster does not extent to threats of nuclear first strikes with ISNA reporting he told the gathered scumbags that “The Zionist regime will disappear soon, the same way the Soviet Union disappeared.”
