The Bootcamp Where Students Are Trained To Be Pro-Life Foot Soldiers

The circle of students sat quietly, scribbling down answers to the prompt they’d just been given: “Write down three similarities between the Holocaust and abortion.”

After a minute or two, they launched into discussion. Innocent people were, and are, being killed, they said. The Nazis discriminated against the Jews, just as “the unborn” face discrimination today. Bystanders aren’t doing enough to stand up against injustice.

Sarah Ruiz, the Texas A&M University senior leading the group, added another idea. Sometimes, she said, people who support abortion rights will say they wouldn’t get an abortion but they don’t want to stop anyone else from getting one.

“You can draw parallels … to slavery, to child abuse, to animal cruelty,” she told her students, as other clusters of students debated the same topic nearby. “‘Well, I wouldn’t kill my neighbor. But what you do is up to you. I wouldn’t beat my child. But what you do is up to you. I don’t like slavery, don’t own a slave.’

“You can plug in literally anything into that.”

As Ruiz spoke, her voice soft and solemn, her pupils nodded along, their faces determined. This was, after all, very serious business: If they could convince someone that abortion in the United States is a holocaust, they might be able to keep them from getting one — and save a life.

Welcome to pro-life boot camp.

Why The US Border Facilities Are ‘Concentration Camps,’ According To History

There is a system of detention centers at our southern border, housing thousands of asylum seekers from Central and South America. When Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called these facilities “concentration camps”, she sparked outrage and a huge debate.

People on the both sides of the political aisle spoke out against her comments, arguing that under no circumstances should we invoke the memory of the Holocaust to describe what’s happening at our border. However, historians argue that there’s value in describing the detention centers as such. So, what is the definition of a “concentration camp” and is it accurate to use the term in reference to the situation at our border?

Holocaust-themed game: ‘Disgrace’ or good educational tool? (DEBATE)

A reality adventure-puzzle game in Greece has sparked an outcry – over its references to the Holocaust.

In particular, it’s based on the story of German businessman Oscar Schindler – who saved more than a thousand Jews during the Second World War. The games website says that players have to assist Schindler in ‘saving innocent people.’ After the public outrage, the company changed the name of a game from ‘Schindler’s List’ to ‘Secret Agent’ – though the story wasn’t altered.

The Jewish community in Greece has condemned the game.
