image for Auschwitz museum and White House criticise Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld for saying ‘useful’ Jews survived Nazi concentration camps

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld is being criticised for saying some Jews were able to survive the Nazi genocide because they were “useful,” with a prominent Holocaust museum saying this claim “does not represent the complex history” of the concentration camps.

“What Fox News allowed to be said on their air yesterday — and has so far failed to condemn — is an obscenity,” White House spokesperson Andrew Bates said in a statement to The Hill on Tuesday.

The scandal began during a Monday segment on the Fox talk show The Five, as panelists were discussing a new set of education standards in Florida.

One of the commenters on the panel, Jessica Tarlov, said that provision within the standards made her uncomfortable.

As a Jewish person, she felt a similar framing of the Holocaust would be highly offensive.

“I’m just fundamentally uncomfortable with the sentence that Blacks benefited at all from this,” she said.

“It would be more appropriate to say that some Jews survived the Holocaust because they were considered temporarily useful, and the circumstances of the Nazi regime’s collapse prevented their murder. »

There are also burn patients in the ICU, and about half of those patients are people burned after falls. »
