WARNING: Sick burn ahead.
Jonathan Reynolds, the Labor MP of Stalybridge, Hyde, Mossley, Longdendale & Dukinfield, and Shadow Economic Secretary to the Treasury (according to his Twitter), recently Tweeted out in recognition of Holocaust Memorial Day.
Holocaust Memorial Day is held on January 27, and is used to honor those that were tragically murdered during the genocide of 1941 to 1945. This marks the day the Soviet Army's liberated Auschwitz camp and freed those that were imprisoned there.
However, one rule of posting on the internet is, "You need to be ready for the crazies."
One Holocaust denier struck back at Reynolds for Tweeting about the holiday, saying it wasn't real.
You politicians are not doing your duty to the public. The Holocaust is one big lie. Time you put pressure on the media to do their job and start asking a few questions. But politicians and journalists are either owned or brainwashed themselves. https://t.co/FIxhnrpHht— Steve Steglitz (@steve_steglitz) January 27, 2018
Reynolds didn't lose his calm, however, reasserting the importance and necessity of the day.
This did not deter the troll, though, who again came after Reynolds.
Proof? Your logic is coming round full circle Jonathan. Look at the chemical, physical and numeric evidence instead,— Steve Steglitz (@steve_steglitz) January 27, 2018
Finally, Reynolds had had enough, and shut the denier down, much to the delight of Twitter.
another good answer for this kind of thing is "I'd explain this to you, but I don't have any crayons".— Mermayden 🌺 (@mermayden) January 27, 2018
I'm now officially into Johnathan Reynolds based on this tweet alone.— richmond (@bogloid) January 27, 2018
Some people were abhorred by the troll, Steve's, behavior, and wanted to make sure the focus of the day remained on the victims.
Johnny, anyone believing The Holocaust is a lie is not worth engaging with, I’ve visited many of the horror camps and the images remain with me, Germany and Poland have visits as part of their education curriculum, on the Memorial Day it’s time to remember all those victims.— Alan (AMOS) Moss (@AMOSSAFETYREP) January 27, 2018
Of course, Jonathan clarified what he meant by his above comments.
