Denialism

Icon denialism.svg
♫ We're not listening ♫
Negationism, as it applies to historical revisionism, is the denial and distortion of established historical facts, usually related to the denial of war crimes or crimes against humanity. The Soviet Union was a major practitioner of negationism, as "history" was altered frequently to reflect the party line. Holocaust deniers and apologists for the USSR and Nazis typically fall into this category. Denial of the Armenian Genocide in Turkey also constitutes negationism.
