Default Florida Principal Told Parent He 'Can't Say The Holocaust Is Factual

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."

In another email, Latson said the school's curriculum, which reportedly includes Holocaust education in English and history classes, "is to be introduced but not forced upon individuals as we all have the same rights but not all the same beliefs."

Eisenhower anticipated that clowns like this and AOC would mouth off decades later:

"Anticipating a time when **** atrocities might be denied, General Eisenhower also ordered the filming and photographing of camps as they were liberated. Members of the U.S. Army Signal Corps recorded approximately 80,000 feet of moving film, together with still photographs."

I wonder if the school taught MMGW or there is more than one sex?

Palm Beach county is full of Jews. Do they not believe as well? Seems the whole school district needs to be **** canned.

Florida has the third-largest Jewish population in the US (after NY and CA) and about 20% of them live in PBC.

Not only is this (former) principal very stupid, he's also very stupid.

There were 6 million jews killed, but rarely mentioned there were another 5 million non Jews killed in the camps as well.
