Bradley Smith is still making trouble at American universities

Filed under: Holocaust — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 8:10 am

Today, I received an e-mail alerting me to a new letter that Bradley Smith has sent to Professor Steven Pinker at Harvard University. This is nothing new. Bradley Smith has been making trouble for years, by constantly sending letters to universities, asking for the name of one person (with proof) who was gassed by the Nazis.

Remains of the gas chamber at Sachsenhausen which had a floor drain

Remains of the gas chamber at Sachsenhausen which has a floor drain

Can a homicidal gas chamber have a floor drain, like the one shown in the ruins of the Sachsenhausen gas chamber, in the photo above?  Just asking!

Although there are numerous Holocaust survivors, out on the lecture circuit, who are claiming that their relatives were “gassed,” there is no proof whatsoever that gas chambers were used to kill people during the “Holocaust.”

I have written several blog posts about the alleged gas chambers at the Majdanek “death camp,” which you can read here: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/majdanek-gas-chamber/

Dwight D. Eisenhower

Dwight D. Eisenhower

This quote is from the letter to a Harvard professor, written by Bradley Smith:

Back in 2009 The Harvard Crimson ran a one-column, two-inch ad where I asked why Dwight D. Eisenhower, in his book Crusade In Europe, did not mention the words “gas chambers.” Publication of the ad caused a scandal and The Crimson withdrew it after one run. You can review that story here. From what I can find, you did not comment on this Free Speech scandal. Reading your principled article in The Boston Globe, it occurs to me to wonder why.

Why do you think General Eisenhower wrote his account of World War 11 and choose to not mention “gas chambers”? No one was in a better position to know what weapons of mass destruction the Germans employed during that war and which they did not. Eisenhower chose (he chose!) to not support a narrative about gas chambers that he had every reason to understand was corrupt. At the same time, having in mind to further his career, he would evade risking that career by discounting them.

Why does Bradley Smith keep taunting people like this? He knows why Eisenhower did not mention the “gas chambers,” and so does everyone else of Eisenhower’s generation. [Eisenhower was born in 1890.]

Back in 1948, when Eisenhower wrote his best selling book, everyone knew what a homicidal gas chamber was.  Everyone knew that a crematorium, that was not air tight and did not have a tall stack to vent the gas, could not have been used to gas 2,000 people at one time, as the Holocaustians now claim.

Back in 1948, America had gas chambers to execute criminals, including the gas chamber in Jefferson City, MO where two people could be gassed at the same time.

I wrote about the gas chamber in Jefferson City, Missouri on this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2012/06/03/what-does-a-real-gas-chamber-look-like/

  1. Do you know the term “outflow knee”? Just asking!

    • No, I do not know the meaning of the term “outflow knee” but I suspect that it has something to do with gas. Why don’t you tell us what it means?

  2. Just to be clear about what bradley “Free Speech is Fundamental” smith has done at his new blog:

    He didn’t just censor my posts under one particular article – he has completely scrubbed me from his site.

    Do you now understand why smith cravenly remains silent about the blatant censorship at CODOH?

    Poor brad, he just couldn’t handle having someone pointing out his hypocrisy while he was trying to point it out at Harvard / The Crimson / pinker.

    But I’ve pointed out more than just his hypocrisy. I’ve shown, with – “evidence provided” – just how utterly lacking smith is in courage, integrity and character.

    What a loser.

  3. Well folks, it looks like bradley “Free Speech is Fundamental” smith has reverted back to his old censoring ways!

    Last night, the following posts could be found under the article in question:

    But what about you brad? What are your reasons for remaining silent on the myriad “suppression-of-Free-Speech incidents” that have occurred at CODOH? And don’t you think that you’re being grossly hypocritical when you yourself “chose to live in a way that belies your assertions” by censoring comments here?
    BS:
    “Free Speech is Fundamental.”
    Really brad? Then why don’t you try showing with actions and deeds that you’re actually concerned about free speech for everyone – rather than just when you feel threatened yourself.

    Thanks for posting my comments brad. I’m happy (and surprised) to see that you are in fact willing to allow free speech on this site. (But of course, only time will tell just how committed you really are.) You have proven to me that you are not a total hypocrite.
    BS:
    “And then in 2009, when the Holocaust question and the issue of Free Speech surfaced in The Harvard Crimson, you remained silent.”
    Brad, when you stop being silent yourself about the blatant and grossly hypocritical censorship that goes on at the CODOH forum, maybe then you will have the moral high ground to criticize pinker for his silence at Harvard.

    BS asked pinker:
    “PS: I would like to run a small ad in The Harvard Crimson. It will read:
    “Breaking the Spell. The Holocaust, Myth & Reality by Nicholas Kollerstrom.” If there is some reluctance on the part of The Crimson to publish this ad, will you have time to urge them to take seriously the Moral Goodness of exchanging and evaluating ideas?”
    Brad, last year, sometime in Sept. or Oct., there was a thread on the CODOH forum (I can’t recall the name of the person who started the thread) titled (If I recall correctly) WHAT DO WE KNOW FOR CERTAIN ABOUT SOBIBOR? The thread disappeared about the same time that a couple threads started by Fritz Berg disappeared. To be more precise – those threads were censored. And to put it another way – the right of those CODOH forum participants to exchange and evaluate ideas were suppressed by said censors.
    There seems to be some kind of reluctance by the CODOH forum censors to show their commitment to freedom of speech and reinstate the mentioned threads. So I would like to ask you brad:
    Will you have time to urge them (the CODOH censors) to take seriously the Moral Goodness of exchanging and evaluating ideas?
    BS:
    “Free Speech is Fundamental.”
    Then why aren’t you speaking out about the suppression-of-Free-Speech incidents that occur on the CODOH forum brad?
    Can you say – hypocrisy – brad?

    “In just the last few days, two entire threads which I started have been deleted e-n-t-i-r-e-l-y from CODOH… So, CODOH deleted my threads and criticisms and pretends there never were any to begin with. Shame on CODOH and everyone who associates himself with such a fraudulent forum. Bradley Smith is the nominal ringleader at CODOH. He doesn’t really care who is “moderator” at CODOH so long as he can continue to pretend that he, Bradley, is some kind of exponent of “open debate.” Shame on Bradley Smith.”

    Yes they do.
    And the time has come for bradley smith to speak out about it – but he remains silent.
    Shame on you brad.

    But this morning, poor brad, after being taken to the woodshed, has decided to scrub every post I made on his blog!

    Nice work of censorship brad! (He even censored his own post! – ha ha ha!!!)

    What a coward!

    What a hypocrite!

    Smith’s pointing out of pinker’s gross hypocrisy, in my opinion, cannot be called “taunting” anymore than my pointing out of smith’s gross hypocrisy. Pointing out the obvious discrepancies in words spoken and actions taken (or lack of) by the likes of smith and pinker can be a positive motivator, as Pinker, like smith, is an egomaniac. When an egomaniacs gross hypocrisy is exposed for all to see – as smith does with pinker and I do with smith, they can be embarrassed into action. (It worked for me with smith.)

    Pinker and smith are public figures, and even if someone does consider such treatment as “taunting” (see the definition below) the culprits deserve it. Why should a public figure’s gross hypocrisy not be pointed out and commented on? Should we just sit back and let them get away with saying one thing and doing (or not doing) another – especially when they profit from doing so?

    As smith asked pinker (and I asked smith):

    “When you write [that]“. . . free speech is indeed fundamental. . .” you appear to have chosen to live in a way that belies that assertion. If you do so for reasons other than career, it would be interesting if you were to tell us what they are.”

    Why should that question not be asked?

    How can asking that question be considered taunting?

    (Of course smith didn’t answer my question – so is smith taunting me by cravenly refusing to answer?)

    BTW – Merriam Webster’s definition of taunting is:

    ” to say insulting things to (someone) in order to make that person angry”

    Well, the act of claiming to be something you obviously aren’t by public figures (like pinker and smith do and are) can be considered insulting (as in insulting one’s intelligence with such obvious hypocrisy) – so if any taunting is going on between pinker and smith – it’s pinker who’s doing the taunting.

  5. Well it looks like bradley is willing to post my comments after all. (Nothing like a little pressure to help get things done!)

    Thanks brad.

    Now that smith has shown that freedom of speech is fundamental at – A Light on Campus – lets see if he’s as willing to speak out against the blatant censorship at CODOH as he wants pinker to do about it at Harvard’s – The Crimson.

  6. I just posted the following comment on smiths new blog under the article titled: Why Free Speech is Fundamental. Sometimes ( http://www.alightoncampus.com/why-free-speech-is-fundamental-sometimes/#comment-203 )

    Now let’s see if bradley “Mr. Free Speech” smith has the integrity and character to walk the walk as well as talk the talk.

    Comment by Greg Gerdes — May 24, 2015 @ 9:00 am

    • Maybe your posts being removed is because you’re a troll? I count seven posts here rambling about the same thing.

      Comment by Question everything — July 30, 2015 @ 4:34 am

  7. Well, it looks like the comments I tried to post yesterday on smith’s new blog site have been censored.

    So apparently, there is no – “free exchange of ideas, or Free Speech” – allowed at – A Light on Campus.

    Just another example of smith’s blatant hypocrisy.

    If I was pinker, I would tell smith that I am not going to respond to your letters unless and until you can muster the courage, integrity and character to allow a “free exchange of ideas, or Free Speech,” on your own blog. And as far as smith’s insinuation that pinker’s silence on the matter equals consent and/or complicity to censorship at Harvard, I would ask smith how pinker’s silence on the censorship that goes on at The Crimson is any different than smith’s silence on the fact that the CODOH forum is so heavily censored.

    Bradley smith is truly one of the biggest hypocrites in “revisionism.” (But he sure does know how to beg for money – doesn’t he? When was the last time he had something to do with a website that didn’t ask for donations?)

    I’ll end this post with these two questions:

    Why is a “free exchange of ideas, or Free Speech,” not allowed at bradley smith’s new website?

    Why does smith remain silent about the blatant censorship at the CODOH forum?

  8. Here is another quote from the Letter smith sent to pinker:

    BS:

    “Back in 2009 I placed a small ad in the Harvard Crimson… The Crimson ran that ad one time, then claimed it was a “mistake” and withdrew it… I bring this up because I do not find… that you commented on this Suppression-of-Free-Speech incident.”

    I tried to post a comment about this topic today on smiths website – A LIGHT ON CAMPUS, under the – FIRE’s 15th Anniversary Speech by Steven Pinker – article.

    I bring this up because I do not find that my submitted comment has been posted.

    I’m wondering if this is a Suppression-of-Free-Speech incident, or if my comment is still being reviewed.

    Time will tell.

  9. Bradley Smith has a new book out entitled A PERSONAL HISTORY OF MORAL DECAY published by Nine Banded Books. Of course, the reason he keeps taunting the professorial class is because he has no morals as the title of his book indicates. Mr. Smith is an aging beatnik who lives on a pension in Mexico with other bottom feeding literary riff raff. Beatniks are a blight on American arts and letters. They’ve lowered the literature bar right down to gutter level with their unintelligable poetry, abstract art and free range facial hair. You can bet Steven Pinker of Harvard University (the most prestigious yeshiva in the USA) isn’t going to give bongo drums thumping Bradley Smith the time of day. Professor Pinker’s got more important things to do than put up with his impertinence, like adjusting the torque of his squash racket strings and cutting the ivy around his office windows back with a letter opener.

    • The Bolshevik Jew’s was not the Beatniks ! How many white Christian Russians was killed ??

      Comment by pacman925 — May 21, 2015 @ 7:44 pm

    • Bradley Smith’s fame is due to the fact that he is a great writer. He is not a Holocaust expert. He also has a great sense of humor. I don’t know if college students pay any attention to his books, but they should.

  10. The story of millions of Jews in the middle of a world war being transported hundreds of miles to a camp where thousands come and go , solely to be killed in homicidal gas chambers is so bizarre that you wonder how people give it credence. The fact that there is no forensic evidence for this mass murder adds to the mystery . The reason it is given credence is those who expose the fraud are liable to criminal prosecution in most European countries and of course western power structures and the western MSM transmit the official propaganda daily.
