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.

End Quote

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/

  1. some contemporary Japanese revisionists, such as Yuko Iwanami (granddaughter of General Hideki Tojo ), propose that Japan’s invasion of China, and the Second World War , itself, were justified reactions to racist Western imperialism of the time.

  2. There is a list of things one can not discuss openly today — not if you don,t have the “correct” opinion — which is getting longer by the day. Besides the “ho£o€oa$t” there are also f.ex. such topics as “Climate change”, “Who owns the media and brainwash the citizens with ‘correct’ information” and “Who owns the Banks and are ruining country by country” are other themes that can render you social isolation when pointing at real undeniable facts.

    I find it very easy to draw one logic conclusion:
    • The truth is anti-Semitic!

  4. What other ‘historical fact’ needs to be protected with laws and persecutions? Have the very numerous witchcraft trials of the past proved the existence of witches and the Devil?

  5. Treblinka: Extermination Camp or Transfer Camp? is mostly the work of Carlo Mattogno, since he edited seven of the nine chapters. I am the author of the first and fifth chapter, and the introduction and conclusion; I also translated Mattogno’s chapters into German. The first part of the book includes an overview of orthodox as well as revisionist historiography on Treblinka, a thorough analysis of the origin of the official version of Treblinka, a systematic historic and technical rebuttal of this version that goes far beyond previous revisionist scholarship, and a survey of the Treblinka trials in Germany and Israel, in which nearly every principle of justice was discarded. The second part of our book establishes that Treblinka was a transit camp, through which the deported Jews from Warsaw and other Polish towns were channeled, partly eastward into the occupied Soviet territories, partly southward to Majdanek and other work camps in the Lublin district.

  6. The Italian lawmakers should read what Primo Levi wrote. When Levi was arrested for being an illegal combatant during World War II, and sent to Auschwitz, he said he was a Jew because he knew that he would not be killed for being Jewish, but he could be legally executed for being an illegal combatant.

  7. There doesn’t appear to be another generation of revisionists waiting in the wings to continue the struggle for historical truth so why even worry about passing new Draconian “Holocaust denial” laws? It’s already difficult enough in some countries to access revisionist web sites and purchase revisionist literature. Even in the USA where we’re supposedly free to express ourselves access to “hate” sites can be blocked in libraries, offices and schools. It’s like pornography in the late ’50s when Americans visiting Paris would sneak back copies D.H. Lawrence’s and Henry Miller’s books. The only difference is that “Holocaust denial” isn’t cool like pornography was. People need to believe in these horrors. The more grisly and preposterous the fables the harder they fight to to preserve them in the face of contrary evidence. Try disabusing family and friends of the propaganda about WWII they’ve been fed all their lives and watch them get overcome with anger.

  8. Carlo Mattogno published an article on October 14 about the potential Italian denial law. It’s very interesting, even if, like me, you have to rely on Google translate to be able to read it.

    • The writing, published by people like Carlo Mattogno and Germar Rudolf, should be allowed as an exception to the Holocaust denial laws. They are not promoting hatred, and not being disrespectful, but rather just giving the facts, based on science. The average person would be bored to tears because their writing is like reading a chemistry book. I don’t see any harm in reading their books. It’s like a heathen writing that the Virgin Mary could not have been a virgin because a virgin birth is not possible.

      Carlo Mattogno started by writing about the alleged first gassing in a room in Block 11 at Auschwitz. He had not yet seen Block 11, and he was skeptical of the gassing. This should not be classified as “Holocaust denial,” because it is so obvious that gassing could not have been done in Block 11, the way the Holocaustians claim. Read about the first gassing at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/Tour/Auschwitz1/Auschwitz06B.html

        Do you know any revisionist researcher promoting hatred in his writings? I don’t.

        The “hatred” trick is just a way to prevent most people from reading the revisionist writings. For obvious reasons.

        • You are correct that there are no “revisionist researchers” who are promoting hatred. However, there are numerous people, including me, who write facetious blog posts featuring levity and sarcastic comments, poking fun at the lies told by Holocaust believers. Carlo Mattogno is noted for being very serious in his writing. “I kid the Jews,” as Bill Maher would say.

  9. You can’t say this, you can’t do that etc etc,……… give ’em enough rope is my theory.

    I honestly think the average person, ie not the brainwashed modern idiot, is slowly getting sick of it, especially in the EU of socialist republics. This and other nonsense will eventually come back to bite them, of that I’m sure. People can only take so much bullshit before they react….and they will, I’m sure…I hope…
