If he has data to prove his position, why is everyone trying to shut down his free speech? I think it is odd that people don't want to see the proof. Are we supposed to just believe what other people say without questioning it? In a court of law, if new evidence is found, the case is re-opened. Why is that not the case here?

I am sure the 36,000 who voted for this guy put a lot of thought into it and I am sure they also all voted for Trump

Along with most of the country. I think we made a great choice.

The holocaust, which occurred during World War II, concluded in 1945. 73 years have elapsed since then. If there was any information to refute what actually happened, it would have come out by now. There is nothing stopping the candidate from putting out "new data" on this matter. It has never been easier to disseminate information to the public. Shame on you for defending this vile individual.

I am confused by the statement of Mr. Jim Brulte, State GOP chairman, saying that "California Republicans reject anti-Semitism, and all forms of religious bigotry". Seriously? The country of Israel was founded based on religious bigotry. Several generations of Palestinians have been kept in the largest open air prison in the world, treated like slaves, and massacred due to the practice of religious bigotry by the Israeli government. So, Mr. Jim Brute, please do not assume that everyone in California is stupid.

I worked on the World Memory Project as a volunteer. The Nazis kept excellent records, some with photos. That anyone could still be a denier after all the proof that has been reported is a mystery to me. NEVER AGAIN!!

Danville thinker, thank you for having the guts to bring this up. Most people blindly believe everything they are fed. I think Hamilton is naive in thinking all of this evidence has not been tampered with. It is amazing how easy it is to create evidence when you need to prove your position! Ask the FBI & cops. They are masters at planting evidence whenever it is convenient for them.

So sad that this kind of thinking still exists in this day and age. I don't need to say anything further, your own words expose you for what you are. "When people shows you who they are, believe them."

Hamilton is very well educated, especially on this subject. Not only were six million Jews killed, six million others were also killed. I have seen the original records of many camps. The others were the mentally, physically, and emotionally disabled, Catholics, members of the LGBTQ community, dissenters, socialists, anyone who hid or protected those already mentioned, or even kept their things for them on the chance they might return.
I also have the privilege of having family members who lived through this.
In my opinion, those who choose not to believe this either feel guilty, ashamed, or fear anyone not like them.
In conclusion, I say again...NEVER AGAIN! to anyone
