The principal of a Florida high school allegedly refused to say the Holocaust actually happened because "not everyone believes" the historical event — in which more than six million people were murdered — actually happened.

William Latson, principal of Spanish River High School in Boca Raton, told a student's mother via email in April 2018 he was not allowed to say whether the Holocaust occurred because of his employment with the School District of Palm Beach County.

"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 in an email, later published by The Palm Beach Post.

"Not everyone believes the Holocaust happened and you have your thoughts but we are a public school and not all of our parents have the same beliefs so they will react differently, my thoughts or beliefs have nothing to do with this because I am a public servant," the principal said. "I have the role to be politically neutral but support all groups in the school."

Latson added: "I do allow information about the Holocaust to be presented and allow students and parents to make decisions about it accordingly." He said he does the "same with information about slavery."

He probably says the same regarding flat earth and the moon landings.

The district said Latson made a grave error in judgment and, out of an abundance of concern and respect for students and staff, reassigned him to a district position. [I hope it is a janitor position.]

"The School Board of Palm Beach County is, and always has been, committed to teaching all students, in every grade level, a historically accurate Holocaust curriculum; one which leaves no room for erroneous revisions of fact or the purge of anti-Semitism," wrote School Board Chairman Frank A. Barbieri, Jr.

I wonder if that slavery remark was to distract and deflect from his real feeling, which is straight up anti-semitism?

Look, we all know that those Auschwitz pictures are photoshopped. Joseph Goebbels briefly hijacked Nikola Tesla's flying time machine, came to the present, stole some laptops, then went home and created the death camp pictures as a joke. That's also when he created the "OMGWTFBBQ" meme.

Unfortunately, Hermann Goering later used one of those laptops to found LiveJournal so he had an outlet for his godawful emo poetry. He used to insist on reading his poetry aloud at cabinet meetings until Hitler gave him a wedgie so powerful that it required seven hours of surgery to dislodge his underwear from his buttocks.

These Holocaust deniers can never get past the fact that not a single goddamn Nazi on trial in Nuremberg ever denied there was a final solution.

Also I believe he is a terrible principal, therefore he must be fired.

And we wonder why the children graduating from high school are so unprepared for the the real world.

How did this idiot become a principal- who did he know or blow to get the position.

The Holocaust can never be denied because the Germans kept very detailed records.

Even now there are way too many people who, if they didn't experience it directly, had family who were imprisoned and/or killed in those Nazi death camps. It's not a fucking myth.

I was fortunate to land in a team teaching history class in HS that was taught by two well-informed teachers. I doubt they would get away with going against the grain like they did back then. They pretty much destroyed most of the tripe we'd been fed up to then.

They even set up a stock market that we invested in. There was a trading floor and the whole nine yards. I think that one rather discouraged me from getting involved with the real thing though, because I lost my play money.

Personally, I think he has a point. He wasn't there to witness it. All he knows is what he's been told. I have to assume he knows there is a huge difference between the "history" in school text books and actual events of the past.

Most people would call that 'creatively hedging your bets'.

I read long ago about some hardcore christians pulling the same thing. When asked about any of the events portrayed in the bible, they absolutely believe it 100% despite their previous argument. <<<facepalm>>>
