Publicist Peggy Siegal, who has received some negative coverage in the mainstream media due to her association with deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, compared the bad press to the treatment of Jews in Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.
Siegal made the abhorrent comment while giving an interview to Vanity Fair.
“I’m going, this can’t be happening,” she said regarding the press coverage. “This is what it’d be like to go to your own funeral.”
“Or to be a casualty of war,” she said to the paper, bringing up family members who she claims died in the Holocaust. “I mean, if I had been in Nazi Germany, it could not have been worse.”
The New York Times referred to Siegel as Epstein’s “social guarantor” who allegedly used “her gate-keeping powers” as a well-connected publicist to secure Epstein’s placement at lavish screenings and events. She reportedly worked with Epstein following his release from jail for child sex crimes in 2009.
She continued with her insensitive and incomprehesible Holocaust comparison in a despicable attempt to play the victim.
“I thought, ‘Oh, my God, I’m on the train station,’ ” Siegal said. “I’m getting on that train, and I’m going to the camps. And this is exactly what came to mind. This is the kind of political, social, horrific nightmare that came to fruition. … Life has come full circle. I’ve finally been attacked for nothing more than being Jewish or being a woman or being at the wrong place at the wrong time.”
She would later attempt to backtrack her comparison in a statement she released to the New York Post on Tuesday.
“I certainly did not mean to offend anyone,” Siegal said.
“The comparison was an insensitive exaggeration. I honestly apologize. There is no way to compare inhumane discrimination of the most heinous evil of the Holocaust to anything. Again, I am so terribly sorry,” she added.
Siegal claims that she did not understand what Epstein was doing, despite the fact that she worked with him following his child sex crime conviction and saw him around young girls all the time.
She said to Vanity Fair: “It’s very hard to tell their ages. You don’t walk into a room and say, ‘Oh, right, how old are you?’ ”
“Part of this, this — I don’t know whether guilt is the right word — but remorse, just this nauseous feeling, is that I didn’t see it,” Siegal said. “How did I miss it? I mean, I’m extremely articulate. I am extremely perceptive. I’m in the perception business, and it was right in front of me, and I didn’t see it. And it’s very hard to believe that. But it’s the truth,” she added.
At least three different movie or TV clients have terminated Siegal as their publicist after learning the extent of her relationship with Epstein. Following her offensive Holocaust comments, more of her clients may be joining them and cutting ties with Siegal as well.
RIGGED: Twitter Admits “Bug” Covered Up for the Lincoln Project’s Predator
Covering up for their own.
Twitter admitted that a “bug” prevented platform users from searching for the Lincoln Project in Friday, hours after the neocon group’s founder partially admitted responsibility in response to a wave of sexual misconduct allegations.
The Lincoln Project was effectively immunized from scrutiny from the allegations, with the Big Tech platform throwing a vital lifeline in its hour of need. Twitter, which made the admission in a statement provided to the Daily Caller, hasn’t explained why it became impossible to search for the Lincoln Project the same day its founder admitting to sexually harassing college aged-men. John Weaver is also accused of one incidence of rape, and coercing young men into homosexual activity with the promise of delivering lucrative political employment.
The neocon campaign consultant pulled a Kevin Spacey, admitting he was “gay” and apologizing for his DM activity on Friday. He has denied responsibility for the most severe allegations of misconduct.
Establishment Wikipedia editors kicked into overdrive to protect the accused predator’s reputation the same day, working to purge any mention of the misconduct allegations from Weaver’s page on the platform.

The Lincoln Project also ignored the allegations against Weaver, merely stating that Weaver’s own partial admission of guilt “speaks for itself.”
Following the suspension of Donald Trump, Twitter has taken its place as a dishonest publisher acting in the interests of establishment and media political figures. Enough whining- it’s time for conservatives and those who support democratic debate with integrity to build free speech platforms such as Gab, Parler and Minds.
