Doubting the Holocaust could soon be a crime in Italy

Italy is one of the last countries in Europe to allow freedom of speech with regard to the Holocaust, but that might soon change, according to a blog post, which I have quoted below.

Begin quote from the post, written by a fellow blogger:

Freedom of thought and expression is under threat in Italy, as Italian turn-coats in Parliament introduced a new amendment to the country’s criminal code that would make doubting the sacred “holocaust” a crime.

The legislation was signed Tuesday by politicians across several parties, including the center-left “Democratic” Party, the center-right People of “Freedom” Party and the anti-establishment Five Star Movement, ANSA reported.

“It would be a significant response to all those episodes of revisionism, alas all too present in Italy and in Europe, that seek to distort history and memory,” said “Democratic” Party Sen. Monica Cirinna.

The demented Italian politician relished at the prospect of jailing people for having the wrong “attitude,” adding: “A hateful attitude, which now becomes a prosecutable crime.”

“Hateful attitude” is a Zionist code word for non-compliance with Jewish supremacy.

Holocaust denial is already either implicitly or explicitly illegal in 17 countries, including Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Switzerland and Romania.

However, Italian law makers will not try to outlaw skepticism of Communist or Zionist atrocities, only the questionable holocaust story.

Zionist psychopaths are very pleased with the new developments.

I was horrified when I read the blog post which I have quoted above.

The most highly respected Holocaust Revisionist is Carlo Mattogno, who is an Italian citizen, if I am not mistaken.  Even if he is a citizen of another country now, he could be renditioned to Italy for trial, the same way that Germar Rudolf was renditioned to Germany, where he was “persecuted” for Holocaust denial.

I have read some of the writing of Carlo Mattogno, and he definitely DOES NOT  have a “hateful attitude.”  Just the opposite.  The writing of Carlo Mattogno is remarkable for its lack of hatred.

In a trial of a “Holocaust denier” in Germany, there is no defense.  Note the photo of Sylvia Stolz in the group photo at the top of this page.  Stolz is a lawyer, who was put in prison because she defended her client, a Holocaust denier, who was on trial.

If Italy does pass a law against Holocaust denial, aka Holocaust Revisionism, it will probably include a clause which says that the Holocaust is the truth, and there is no defense against the law, for that reason.  In Germany, the Holocaust is “manifestly obvious.”

The Holocaust is not “obvious” to men like Germar Rudolf and Carlo Mattogno.

You can read below what Mattogno wrote about himself and his research on the Holocaust:

My own contributions to the progress of revisionism began in 1985 with the publication of Il rapporto Gerstein. Anatomia di un falso,[27] for which I used the copious wealth of archival documentation, which I had been able to identify in the preceding years. In January of 1984, at a time when the work was already finished, I sent a few selected pages to Pierre Guillaume to allow him to judge the contents, hoping that it could be published in French. Towards the end of the month, I received an answer from Prof. Faurisson in the name of P. Guillaume, stating his appreciation of the extract I had sent and saying that they had been “très agréablement surpris” (very pleasantly surprised) to discover a text which was “manifestement de haute qualité scientifique” (obviously of high scientific quality). This praise caused me to persevere in revisionist studies.

Until the end of 1989, I maintained a correspondence with various archives in Europe, America, and Israel and received by mail the documents I needed. In 1989, I made my first visit to the Museum and the Camp at Auschwitz and began to collect directly the photocopies of the original documents in the archives. This work resulted in the book Auschwitz: la prima gasazione,[28] a critical and detailed analysis refuting the alleged first homicidal gassing in the basement of Block 11 of the Auschwitz camp, which had served as a model of further assumed gassings. In 1994, I published a reply to the second book on Auschwitz by Jean-Claude Pressac[29], entitled Auschwitz fine di una leggenda.[30] Together with the refutation by Prof. Faurisson and contributions by other scholars it was included in the work organized and edited by Germar Rudolf Auschwitz: Nackte Fakten. Eine Erwiderung an Jean-Claude Pressac.[31]

From 1995 on, I had access to the documents in Moscow and elsewhere, as I mentioned above. Thanks to these sources, I wrote a book on the structure and operation of the Central Construction Office at Auschwitz, entitled La “Zentralbauleitung der Waffen-SS und Polizei Auschwitz,”[32] as well as an essay under the title “Sonderbehandlung” ad Auschwitz. Genesi e significato,[33] both containing a wealth of documents in the appendix, and finally an extensive two-volume work on the history and the technicalities of the cremation ovens at Auschwitz, not yet published. From June 1997 onwards, many of my articles appeared also in the journal Vierteljahreshefte für freie Geschichtsschreibung, and since 2003 also in the English sister magazine The Revisionist. The fact that my correspondence with Prof. Faurisson ceased in 1995, the year in which I first visited the Moscow archives together with Jürgen Graf and Russell Granata, is not just a coincidence. From that time on, our positions with respect to the tasks of revisionist research and to the value of historical results achieved by it were too far apart and collisions were inevitable.

If Carlo Mattogno is living in Italy, he had better get out of that country FAST.  America is probably the only safe haven left for Holocaust revisionists.

It has gotten to the point where even bloggers are sent to prison for denying the Holocaust, as reported in this news article, about a Swiss blogger, who was convicted of Holocaust denial:  http://www.jewishpress.com/news/breaking-news/swiss-blogger-sentenced-for-denying-holocaust/2013/08/01/
