Holocaust Denial vs. WWII History

It's well known that most of the people who say, "well, there were no gas chambers, and only a few thousand Jews were killed, and they all deserved it," also point out that Gypsies, Jehovah's Witnesses, homosexuals, etc. were also targets. However, recently I've been seeing people who only point out the latter being labelled as Holocaust deniers.

Why is this such a problem? Does the undeniable fact that Jews were not the only target make six million an any less atrocious figure or what went on any less despicable? Is there some reason why people want Hitler's practices to have been about only Jews? If not, why do people get angry when, with no challenges to the Jewish aspect, the other targeted and undesirable groups are mentioned?
