Salon blames Infowars and "conspiracy theories" for the holocaust!

Just when you thought the attacks couldn't get more ridiculous...

Tamerlan Tsarnaev was an Alex Jones fan:
"Tamerlan “took an interest in Infowars,” according to Elmirza Khozhugov, the ex-husband of Tamerlan’s sister. He was also apparently interested in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and was trying to find a copy of “The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion,” one of the most notorious conspiracy tomes of history."

"In the real world, it underscores how dangerous and seductive conspiracy theories can be. The ideology of al-Qaida, which seems to be the primary influence on the Tsarnaev plot, can be seen as a conspiracy theory in itself, which places the United States at the center of all evil in the world. Even the extermination campaigns of the Third Reich were essentially built on a conspiracy theory."
Ironically, if you were living in early 1940s Germany and you believed people were being exterminated and tortured in those camps, you would likely have been dismissed as something akin to a conspiracy theorist by the Nazis. When the US Army liberated Dachau they said the people of the town "were to blame for their cowardice" for not standing up to the SS and forced them to tour the camps, see the piles of naked corpses and confront what they had allowed to happen. The most common excuse from the citizens was, "Wir sind aberall belogen worden" - we have all been lied to. The few citizens that stood up to the Nazis - the "conspiracy theorists" of that time in other words - were praised for their courage. So don't blame "conspiracy theories" for the holocaust you pathetic faux-intellectual shill.

Funny how whenever I make comparisons to the Nazis in videos and posts about false flags or global warming, I get criticized for invoking "Godwin's Law", but when debunkers do it, it's okay it seems.

Also, I don't even know what this "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" thing is and only ever seem to hear about it from debunkers.
