I wasn’t *100%* tongue in cheek when I predicted that Russia will be held responsibile for the Holocaust by handshakeworthy Western opinion-setters by midcentury.
It seems that I was hardly alone in this sentiment amongst my followers.
Likelihood of major Western countries adopting "Russia did the Holocaust" narrative within the next three decades? (select closest)

This idea – that the Soviet-Russian genocide of the Jews under Russian nationalist Jughashvili is predestined to be the great synthesis to the neoliberal thesis and the Alt Right antithesis – that this will be the ultimate horseshoe will resolve the ideological contradictions that are currently wracking the West – seems to be catching hold in the United States, at least going by anecdotal Twitter observations.
I just got my haircut at a typical interior of the country outlet mall haircut salon, where I had a 300 pound middle age woman convinced Russians spoke German, and had committed the Holocaust in WW2. She said “I just hate seeing pictures of the Holocaust” without any prompting.

Was talking with a cousin, American, who told me his antisemitic grandfather believes the Germans shipped the Jews to Stalin who then murdered them.

So far as Western elites – Jewish or Gentile – are concerned, there really is no reason not to push through with this values shift, especially as the technical/political means for effecting it come within sight.
