A German teacher was suspended after saying on Tuesday that he cares more about cattle that Holocaust victims, blogger Elder of Ziyon reported.

“Personally, I’m not interested in Auschwitz at all… Even industrial livestock farming emotionally affects me more,” Daniel Krause said when he called into a radio show on International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Officials are also trying to get the 34-year-old fired, Elder of Ziyon noted. Dr. Gerd Bollermann said, “I am appalled by the tasteless and dehumanizing utterances. The Arnsberg District will not tolerate anything that denigrates the memory of the murdered Jews during the Nazi era.”

Krause, who is from the town of Unna in Germany, was suspended from his school once before for remarks about the Nazis. During a rally in 2012 for the far-right “Pro-NRW” group, he grabbed the microphone and said, “As a practicing homosexual I have more fear of Islamists then, for example, [I would have at the time of] the Nazis.”

    one could dismiss as krause as a fool and one wouldn’t be entirely wrong to do that; he is a fool, a perfect fool. but, he evidently cares about his own safety which he (rightly) regards as threatened by islamists. one wonders, though, why he should care about something as insignificant as his life when so many cattle are being slaughtered (for food). after all, the lives of millions of Jews mean nothing to him. what really animates krause is the death of cattle. there is something profoundly pathological about this and the fact that krause believes that he is enlightened, more enlightened than those who comprehend, in some measure, the implications for humanity of the Shoah.

    so, assuming krause is capable, it’s time for him to acknowledge that the islamist threat to him, puny, insignificant krause, and others really means nothing as long as cattle are being slaughtered.

    or, maybe, with all due respect to concern for the humane treatment of animals, humans, it must be said, are entitled to greater concern. some insight and some honesty are required. krause might not be up to the task.

  • This guy obviously hates himself for being a homosexual and is projecting his hate onto Jews. He needs psychiatric counseling but in the meantime he needs to be out of work and living on handouts he begs from Jews on the street. The last sentence and what he said makes no sense. I suppose he’s got a right to live, but if a meteor fell on him I would care more about a cow.
