Shoah

Shoah ("catastrophe" or "calamity") is the Hebrew term used since the 1940s to describe the Holocaust. Alt-right website The Right Stuff has a podcast called The Daily Shoah, its name being both a play on The Daily Show and a deliberately offensive reference to the Holocaust.[1] In alt-right circles, shoah'd essentially means "shut down", and usually refers to the suspension of an alt-righter's social media account. [2]

Yair Rosenberg explains how those in the alt-right use the term:

On Twitter, whenever a Jew expresses concern about anti-Semitism or other bigotry, alt-right trolls invariably pop up to exclaim, “oy vey, it’s anudda shoah!” Thus, they trivialize both the contemporary concern and the Holocaust in one ugly utterance.[3]
