Trump, Trutherism, Holocaust Denial: The Toxic Connections
My colleague/co-blogger Dr. Jonathan Harrison analyzes the connections between what now is the Republican mainstream (Trump) and the so-called alt-right on an example of conspiracy theorists. The succinct analysis contains lots of links for further reading/chewing on. It was prompted by the death of the Holocaust denier Victor Thorn whose “research” has been indirectly endorsed by Donald Trump himself.
Holocaust denial lurks in the shadows of Donald Trump’s support, alongside 9/11 conspiracy theories and other Alt-right memes. This present article is prompted by this snopes.com report of the death last week of Victor Thorn, who was both a Holocaust denier, as shown here, and 9/11 Truther, as shown here. Last year, Thorn was a main source of the anti-Clinton diatribe co-authored by JFK conspiracist Roger Stone and despicable racist Robert Morrow, which was endorsed by Trump in this tweet, discussed here.
