Neo-Nazis Protest Holocaust Memorial Event, Screaming About ‘Your Imaginary 6 Million’

A handful of neo-Nazis disrupted a Holocaust remembrance event in Arkansas this weekend, bearing swastika flags and shouting that “the Holocaust didn’t happen but it should have.”

According to a CNN report, the dozen or so protesters also decried Holocaust victims at “your imaginary 6 million.” They were outnumbered by the 50 or so marchers there for the event.

The neo-Nazis tried to shout down a 96-year-old World War II veteran speaker who had helped liberate concentration camps during the war.

The protest was reportedly in part due to controversy at the local Arkansas Tech University over a scholarship named for a professor who has been accused of anti-Semitism.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
