On Sunday, as the world marked International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Planned Parenthood, the single largest murderer of children in the womb in modern history, tweeted out its thoughts:
On #HolocaustMemorialDay, we remember the tremendous, immeasurable human cost of bigotry — and we reaffirm that there can be no place for antisemitism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, or *any* form of hatred in our communities, our politics, and our country.
— Planned Parenthood Action (@PPact) 27 January 2019
The Daily Wire reports:
Planned Parenthood is responsible for the killing of some 300,000 American unborn children per year; those children are disproportionately minority and from poorer families.
But this is typical of the intersectional Left, which has subsumed anti-Semitism under the broader rubric of Leftist politics. The issue when it comes to the Holocaust isn’t the dehumanization and slaughter of innocents anymore – now it’s “bigotry” writ large, so that the Holocaust can be used as just another club against conservatives on a range of issues from immigration to biological sex. This is how the Women’s March can proclaim that it opposes bigotry even while its leaders call for anti-Semitic boycotts against Israel from the podium. For too many on the Left, getting into the specifics of the Holocaust makes it impossible for the Holocaust to be used as a political tool. Better to be vague about the Holocaust, to broaden it to a miasmatic evil, so that the Holocaust can be linked with whatever trendy cause Leftists wish to promote that day.
That’s how open anti-Semities like Britain’s Jeremy Corbyn can, with a straight face, tweet nonsense like this:
In memory of the millions of Jewish people, and others, who perished in the Holocaust. Let us never allow antisemitism or any other form of racism to disfigure our society.

Corbyn has backed Hamas and Hezbollah, and is an ardent Israel-hater who has associated with blood libel purveyors and Holocaust deniers. Yet he apparently has no qualms about blathering about the Holocaust, even though he’d undoubtedly side with its modern-day advocates in the radical Islamist world.
The same holds true for Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who tweeted:
Today #WeRemember the murder of 17 million people, including 6 million Jews at the hands of the Nazis.
With the rise of Anti-Semitic and Neo-Nazi ideology, it’s more important than ever we learn from the atrocities of the past & commit to fighting intolerance. #HolocaustMemorial https://t.co/8jpJ8olBaD

Omar is a BDS supporter who has also expressed bewilderment that Jews might be upset at her past tweet about Israel “hypnotizing” the world. But she’s happy to use the Holocaust as a club against supposed right-wing extremism, even as she promotes anti-Semitic terrorists.
Watering down the Holocaust so that it can be applied as a gloss on every favored cause of the day is the ultimate insult to Jews. Jews should reject such cynical manipulation from the very people who would gladly engage in atrocities against innocents if given the chance to do so.
