85. At the risk of getting in deep shit,

I'd like to point out that you didn't have to be anti-Semitic to have been a holocaust enabler:

There were numerous good, decent people who didn't push back against the step-by-step campaign the National Socialist Party waged to gain and hold power. They simply couldn't believe that their fellow Germans were capable of the evil that was being plotted. While they didn't actively participate, their lack of action emboldened (enabled) the Nazis, leading to greater and greater repression and, ultimately, to the murder of millions of Jews, Gypsies, Catholics, disabled persons, and others who were considered "undesirable."

So in that sense, the remark in and of itself, without any supporting evidence, is not anti-Semitic.
