Auschwitz Memorial urges Amazon to stop selling 'virulently antisemitic Nazi propaganda' There were widespread expressions of revulsion both online and off. "Horrified at the carnival parade in Campo de Criptana," Spain's Foreign Minister Arancha Gonzalez Laya wrote on her official Twitter account. "I totally reject any trivialisation of the Holocaust," she added. "Following contact with the organisers, they have apologised to the Federation of Jewish Communities of Spain. It is essential to keep teaching about the memory of the Holocaust."

"I am horrified by and utterly reject the shameful trivialisation of the Holocaust that took place at the Campo de Criptana carnival," she tweeted on Tuesday. "It is an affront to the memory of the victims of the Shoah and an intolerable expression of antisemitism."

"Once we saw the enactment, we had the same criticisms. If the initial objective was to commemorate the victims, it is evident this did not happen," it said on Tuesday. It stressed that it had shared no part in the production and insisted on its"absolute condemnation... of the genocide inflicted on the Jewish people by the Nazis and any mockery or trivialisation of the issue". Carnival parades take place every year across Spain and Europe in the days leading up to Ash Wednesday which marks the start of Lent.

A place to avoid on my next trip to Spain. I have always found Spanish to be lovely but this is awful. They do realise they wouldn’t be considered the aryan race, right? Exactly 6 million. While the state of Israel commits these crimes today Teaching your kids to torture calves as sport and torture hunting dogs to death and then you wonder why they think death is funny. Disgusting

And it is women who are dressed as victims and men as perpetrators (at least in the clip shown). What were these people thinking? Trivializing a devastating time of history for many. Not a good look. Meanwhile... Just add to the list of Spain’s cruel acts !!! I wonder why I don't know what about carnival brings out the antisemitism. Maybe they're giving it up for lent and are trying to get it out of their system?

Liberal Josh Frydenberg sounds alarm on Holocaust deniers and 'the rise of the far right'Federal Parliament's most prominent Jewish MP warns that far-right extremism is rising across the world, including in some parts of Australia. Fryberg is a fascist Did he link them to Muslims as well or hasn’t he received his DuttonDogWhistle yet? And yet his ministerial colleague, just yesterday, did a Trump by focussing as much attention on far-left 'lunatics' as on the far-right. Have a quiet word with him (behind the bike sheds if necessary), JoshFrydenberg.

Virus emergency blueprint: Australia pulls trigger on pandemic planThe Australian government has activated its emergency response plan to an impending coronavirus pandemic, foreshadowing fever clinics, fast-tracked vaccines and severe pressure on hospitals, blood banks, medical supplies and mortuaries. Kaubo Nevertheless, death en masse is coming again to this sunburnt black land, not with slow skin cancers to ethnically foreign white European-Australians. But as after first foreign contact with foreign white British citizens with foreign British diseases, from measles to STDs! Kaubo Does the plan involve travel bans to/from more than one country? Or do we just bring it in and then deal with it later? Kaubo This plan smacks of someone setting up ScottyfromMarketing to come riding to the rescue to prove what a capable leader he is. Cue ominous music, AIDS-like campaign (“Where’s the reaper costume?”) & statues of our craven leader being erected outside towns to ward off the virus.
