Shelby County, TN - A Tennessee county commission has voted in favor of censuring a judge who posted racist and anti-Semitic articles on his Facebook page.

Prior to the Monday evening hearing, Criminal Court Judge Jim Lammey wrote a letter to the Shelby County Commission to say the article he linked to saying the Jews should “get the **** over the Holocaust” and called Muslim immigrants “foreign mud” was not written by a Holocaust denier, as had been widely reported, but by a Jewish writer, David Cole, the Commercial Appeal reported.

“The local newspaper’s initial dramatic heading, tying me to a Holocaust denier, and accompanying article was all based on a falsehood,” the letter said. “This is character assassination at its best.”

Cole, who also has gone by the name of David Stein, is considered by historians to be a Holocaust denier. He has claimed that Auschwitz was not an extermination camp and that there was no genocidal plan against the Jews, but rather a plan to use them as slave labor. He also has disputed the 6 million Jews killed figure as too high. He says he prefers to be called a Holocaust revisionist.

The commission cannot directly censure Lammey. Its resolution, which was approved unanimously, will ask the Tennessee Board of Judicial Conduct to issue a statement finding judicial misconduct.

Lammey did not appear in person at the hearing, saying in the letter that his court docket keeps him too busy to come defend himself, and that he believed the commission had already reached a conclusion.

“We wholly reject Judge Lammey’s argument that he is not associating himself with a Holocaust denier,” Jewish community representative Katie Bowman said, according to WMC5 Action News. “David Cole continues to deny historical facts surrounding the genocide of the Jewish people. Judge Lammey’s reliance on Cole’s words only reinforces any assessment in the Jewish community that Judge Lammey is unable to adequately interpret and understand fact.”

What about your very good friends Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Ilhan Omar and that nut job from Michigan. No, the ones who hate the US Constitution are your Socialist friends and you have them all on display running for President and now you can add on Comrade deBlasio. What a cadre of losers. Keep it up Democrats.

I looked up the judge's profile. He was put in office in 2006 under a Democrat governor. The very fact that this is not made clear is yet another demonstration of how the "mainstream" propaganda organ (euphemistically called "mainstream media") rewrite history to blame Republicans for the Democrats' deviant and devious behaviour.

Your comment is an irrelevant "what aboutism," that simply avoids JohnBrown's point...which I find all to common a behavior among today's staunch Trumpzis.

You are correct, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Ilhan Omar are serious anti-Semitic problems, and the left wing of the Democrat Party is threatening to do to the Party's moderate center what the Tea Party did to the traditional center of the Republican Party.

But JohnBrown is also correct when he writes the "...judge is just echoing what the MAGA alt-right nazis think."

Don't pretend that Trump's flirtation with white supremacists is not a big part of the problem. No less than Richard Spencer, the neo-Nazi who led the Charlottsville march, said on Tuesday in an interview with The Atlantic:

"There is no question that Charlottesville wouldn’t have occurred without Trump."

As the Atlantic article concluded:

"...[i]t really was because of...[Trump's]...campaign and this new potential for a nationalist candidate who was resonating with the public in a very intense way. The alt-right found something in Trump. He changed the paradigm and made this kind of public presence of the alt-right possible.”

Lets piece it apart. They’re goyim. Many genocides in their history, of course paling to the holocaust. But from their perspective they have absolutely heard enough!
Its a “shtik” to to bring up the Holocaust on an everyday platform to arouse pity and deem anyone a vast antisemite if they only have a quirk to say.
We Jews shld stop ramming the Holocaust down everyone’s throat and live by it and emulate from it and not seek pity by every goy on the planet. Of course they had enough! Every other day is a “memorial day” “Holocaust day” &&&.
We shld be vigilant and not live our lives in fear but by in large we live in the greatest country on earth and we shld start laying low a little.
By the way, almost all my ancestors were killed in the Holocaust. I dont take it lightly but i do have a brilliant grandmother of 95 that says the same. It doesnt help us in any way. And to make headlines of this Judge only provokes antisemitism BIGTIME.

really?, Azoi? a revisionist? By what right? Here's what should happen to him...Put him in a room of 100 survivors...He must listen to each and every story...he must learn their names, what happened to their families,their husbands, wives, children that were murdered, and what was done to the survivors-and how they survived. He must look at pictures of the gas chambers,the results of Mengele's experiments , the piled up dead bodies- and listen to the heart ache that these wonderful people carry with them. He needs to visit a death camp-and then go to the museum in Jerusalem...Maybe he should live a day as a victim of the camps. He doesn't get to revise anything-let him live the experience and only then-he may have a right to an opinion.
My wonderful mother, a survivor, never, not for one day, stopped mourning her mother.

Jim Lammey was not appointed by a Democatic governor. He was elected to this position on August 3, 2006, to replace retired Judge Joseph B. Dailey. Lammey was then re-elected on August 7, 2014, for another eight-year term expiring in 2022.

President Trump did not accept the support of the white supremacists but your buddy Hussein Obama and 99% of the Democrat also rans running for President accept the endorsements of Al Sharpton and even run to kiss his ring as well as that of all Socialists who are devout Anti-Semites. After Charlottsville, President Trump only said that there were good and bad people on both sides which you of course disagree with because you believe that the Black Lives Matter bunch are good people. No, they are thugs.
