The gas chamber in the Auschwitz main camp

Is the room shown in the photo above a “gas chamber” or a crematorium? You had better believe that it is a gas chamber, if you don’t want to go to prison for 5 years.  There will soon be laws against Holocaust denial in North America.

In a recent news article, which you can read in full here, I learned that a football player in Canada was fined for tweeting about a You Tube video that was put up on March 18, 2015. The video contains factual information, which constitutes “Holocaust denial.”

This quote is from the news article:

A CFL player was fined and apologized on Friday for making inappropriate tweets.

Montreal Alouettes defensive lineman Khalif Mitchell took to Twitter and made inappropriate statements, including linking to a Holocaust denial video.

Mitchell, a defensive tackle who previously spent two years on the San Francisco 49ers’ practice squad, posted a link to a video titled “The greatest lie ever told — The Holocaust” on May 8.

The CFL Playes’ Association and B’nai Brith Canada, a Jewish human-rights organization, were both part of the apology.

“I wholeheartedly apologize to all those who I know I let down by posting those videos, especially those who look up to me as a professional athlete,” Mitchell said. “I fell into a trap by watching that video and I hope others can learn from my very public mistake.


Mitchell was fined undisclosed amounts by the CFL and the Alouettes for violating the league’s social media policy. The league fine will be donated to a charity of the player’s choice.

It is my personal opinion that a Holocaust denial law will soon be passed in America.  I blogged about this at
