Spanish River High’s principal refused to call the Holocaust a fact
No, your eyes are not deceiving you. Yes, you read that headline correctly. Here's the skinny:
Thinking Latson simply had expressed himself poorly, she wrote back, asking him to clarify his comments. “The Holocaust is a factual, historical event,” she wrote. “It is not a right or a belief.”
She expected a chastened response. Instead, the veteran principal doubled down.
“Not everyone believes the Holocaust happened,” he wrote, according to email records obtained by The Palm Beach Post through a public records request. “And you have your thoughts, but we are a public school and not all of our parents have the same beliefs.”
He went on to say that as an educator he had “the role to be politically neutral but support all groups in the school.”
“I can’t say the Holocaust is a factual, historical event because I am not in a position to do so as a school district employee,” Latson wrote.
That response led the mother to launch a yearlong effort to address what she called a school leader’s failure to separate truth from myth regarding the genocide of an estimated 6 million Jews under Germany’s Nazi regime in the 1940s.
So the principal's response boils down to - "We can't admit the Holocaust is a fact because we can't upset the Holocaust deniers." The district Jew-haters have their beliefs too, and it seems that in this district they're just as valid as historical fact.
Look for more of this insanity in the future. The war against the Jews has never ended. It merely went underground, waiting for those final witnesses to the Holocaust to pass on.
