Los Angeles, CA - Steven Spielberg Warns: Genocide As Possible Today As It Was During Holocaust

Los Angeles, CA - Steven Spielberg, the Oscar-winning director of the Holocaust film “Schindler’s List,” has a warning: The possibility of hate leading to genocide is as possible today as it was during the Holocaust.

Spielberg in an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt specifically identified the mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue building in Pittsburgh as a signal of the rise in hateful ideologies.

“When collective hate organizes and gets industrialized, then genocide follows,” Spielberg said in the interview aired Wednesday. “We have to take it more seriously today than I think we have had to take it in a generation.”

The interview marks the return to a select number of theaters of “Schindler’s List” for its 25th anniversary.

“I think there is more at stake today than even back then,” when the movie was released in 1993, he said.

The film tells the story of Oskar Schindler, a German businessman whose efforts to employ Jews during the Holocaust saved over 1,000 people. It won seven Oscars, including for best picture and best director.

The film, shot in Poland, led to Spielberg founding the USC Shoah Foundation, which videotapes interviews with Holocaust survivors and now contains testimony from more than 55,000 survivors and witnesses.

“I don’t think I’ll ever do anything as important,” Spielberg said of the film in the NBC interview. “So this, for me, is something that I will always be proudest of.”

Correct he has a point. We need to ban violent hate speech and associations. Nazis should not be afforded free speech

“When collective hate organizes and gets industrialized, then genocide follows,” It sounds so possible... And the problem is that while there seems to be at least 25% antisemitism everywhere, the other 75% may not want to speak against it, as most see some truth to it, or just don't care or don't see a benefit in getting involved...

So the 25% becomes the voice...

The fascist ruler of Hungaria and his Jobbik Party just expelled the Central European University, a graduate school equivalent of The Sorbonne, Oxford and Harvard. The CEU is a USA accredited University, but there is not one word of protest from Donald J (Jobbik) Trumpf about this, as alt-right forces think CEU is a 'liberal' university. Shutting it down is another goose step toward the next atrocity against Jews. CEU was founded by George Soros. Nazi Nuremburg Laws closed all Jewish schools and barred Jews from all Universities in the Reich. FIGHT FASCISM BEFORE IT BEATS YOU UP.

"May not want to speak" They did, there was an Election 3 weeks ago. Democrats won BIG. Biggest in 100 years. MAGA Lost. Anti-Semites lost. Democracy won. The good nes in the USA that there is more than one minority. In Germany, Poland, Spain etc the Yiden were the only minority with about 5% against 95% Christians. In The USA we have Yiden, Mexicans, Blacks etc. In a few years iy"h we will be over 50% of the USA (Combined minorities) The days when "No jews and Negros were allowed" are over. Never again.

"Ban violent hate speech" How about "Beat them up, I will pay for defense lawyers" "Lock her Up" without trial. Questions?
1) Should be outlawed
2)If a POTUS calls for violence should be Impeached?

My Dear HaShoiteh,
1. Soros and anything related to Soros, is a Moiser and a Roidef; and it's a Chiyuv on every Yid to "moireedin oisoi, v'ein maalin oisoi"
2. All the Democrats and the minority lovers should think twice before deluding themselves that the Yidden can join under one big happy tent. Don't forget how the Farrakhans, Sharptons, and the progressives are all falling over themselves to help us and our brothers in Eretz Yisroel.

I cannot tell if you are being sarcastic or not. The elimination of free speech for Nazis, or other hate groups (and of course the Government gets to decide whose speech is too abhorrent to allow); would be the end of Jews in the United States, as well as the collapse of the United States.G-d help us from such fools and other Progressives, as well as Idiots who support Bernie. Halevai they should all "Get the Burn" like the Neviyim of Baal, and then get more Burn in Gehenim.

Beat them up after the beat us up is not hateful.
Lock em up is not violent.

Imoeach him all you want. He ain't being removed from office . Too bad!!
And no big win this past NOV. Fake news. it was classic midterm volatility. Pure nonsense.

Also its fake news and a lie to state nazis are Trump supporters as if that's what maga means or that's his base. That's not true its a lie. One of your nasty obnoxious lies. the nazis are a few dangerous bored nut jobs. maybe 500 our of 42 million Trump voters just like 500 out of 44 million Hillary voters are muslim extermists.

I am not being sarcastic. And firstly let me be clear that i mean free violent hate speech.

I believe we need sechel. this notion that whatever our constitution says can't be changed. or this notion that anytime we touch a freedom its a threat to our democracy is ill founded. Let me put this is two ways.

1) If we enable free hate speech it also can be the end of the USA. A real rabble rouser can get up and tell everyone to kill jews because its free speech. And I know some mishagoyim will get up and say hey thats Trump. But thats nonsense. That's trump in their fake news mind. They painted this lying image of him. So let me be clear no its not trump at all. And we don't mean that when a reporter is in your face and you say get em out of here that oh all of a sudden its hate speech. I mean when you point to a specific group as nazis or muslims do and you say we need to kill all of them. Germany was also a deomcracy.
2) Who says the USA is great and that we must maintain its prinicpals. if yidden are getting killed whether 9/11 or pittsburgh, its time for a change

You can limit free hate speech as they do in israel in a democratic way. (judges need to approve or 2/3of senate etc.
