David Irving is NOT a veteran Holocaust denier

David Irving might be a Holocaust denier, but he is a RECENT denier, not a VETERAN denier.

I am commenting on a recent news article which you can read at

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

National newspaper Rzeczpospolita reported on Tuesday that British convicted Holocaust denier David Irving intends to lead a tour of World War II landmarks in September 2018 which includes extensive stops at Holocaust sites in Poland.

Irving has conducted these and similar tours for his followers and admirers for nearly a decade — the forthcoming visit, however, would be his first since Poland passed a controversial amendment to its existing Holocaust commemoration legislation on Feb 6. Public discussion of wartime antisemitism and collusion with the Nazis among Poles is now a criminal risk, which carries a maximum prison sentence of three years.

Irving told Rzeczpospolita reporter Wiktor Ferfecki in an email on Monday that he had every intention of conducting the tour this year, which includes visits to the sites of Bełżec, Sobibór and Treblinka — Nazi extermination camps where nearly two million Jews who were trapped in German-occupied Poland were murdered.


Describing Irving as the “guru” of Holocaust deniers, Ferfecki pointed out that his presence in Poland might well further damage the country’s image in the eyes of international critics”

End quote

David Irving is NOT the “guru” of Holocaust deniers. David Irving is a historian, He has only recently become a Holocaust denier. It should be pointed out that Holocaust deniers are a dime a dozen. There is nothing unusual about being a Holocaust denier in today’s world.

“the enormous contribution Holocaust survivors have made to the Chicago community”

The title of my blog post today is a quote from this news article:

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

The Chicago area’s 73rd annual collective Holocaust memorial observance will be held at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, April 15, at Skokie Valley Agudath Jacob Synagogue, 8825 East Prairie Road, in Skokie.

The service, sponsored by Sheerit Hapleitah of Metropolitan Chicago, the umbrella organization for local Holocaust survivor groups, traditionally is the largest gathering of Holocaust survivors in the Midwest and one of the largest in the United States. The Jewish United Fund cosponsors the event.

A high point of the service each year is the candle lighting ceremony honoring the six million martyrs, including one and a half million innocent children, who were murdered only because they were Jews. Each candle is lit by survivors or their children and grandchildren, who represent the failure of the Nazis’ ultimate goal.

“73 years after the liberation of the concentration camps, we once again face a world of hatred and injustice against the Jewish people,” said Henry Jelen, president of Sheerit Hapleitah.

“We cannot let the world forget that a modern society, Nazi Germany, was capable of committing such atrocities. Today, many reactionary forces are hard at work to change history and deny that the Holocaust ever happened. We must be vigilant not to allow this to occur.

End quote

Note that I have high lighted the numbers of Jews that were allegedly killed: six million including one and a half million children.

The official number of Holocaust victims is now down to a total of 1.5 million, including the children.

Note that the article also says that the Jews “were murdered only because they were Jews.” So the Jews were doing nothing wrong, not hurting anyone, not cheating anyone, not “jewing anyone down” and the Nazis killed them for no good reason.

Way back in the “dark ages” when I went to Journalism school, we were taught to always give both sides of a story. Now it seems that it is O.K. to give only one side of a story — the Jewish side.


April 4th, the anniversary of the day that Martin Luther King died

You can read about the death of Martin Luther King in this news article:

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

(CNN)It’s April 4, 1968, and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. steps outside his room at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee, and leans over the balcony.

King has been in an anxious mood all day, and his room reflects his hurried state of mind. His bed remains unmade, and his suitcase — containing his hair brush, clothes, a can of Magic Shave and a copy of his book, “Strength to Love” — remains unpacked.
As King stands on the balcony, he asks a saxophonist in the courtyard below to play his favorite song, “Take My Hand, Precious Lord,” at a rally he’s leading later that night.
Across the street, a man raises his rifle in the narrow bathroom of a derelict rooming house and points it at King. It is 6:01 p.m.
Just as the man squeezes the trigger, King suddenly returns to his room to don his overcoat against the evening chill. The bullet misses King’s head by inches and slams into a wall.
American history is full of grim what-if questions. What if President Lincoln’s bodyguard had not decided to get a drink and leave Lincoln unguarded that night at Ford’s Theatre? What if Robert Kennedy had decided not to take a shortcut through the kitchen at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, where an assassin was waiting for him on the night he was killed?
As the nation remembers King’s assassination in Memphis 50 years ago, there’s another largely unspoken question: What if King had survived? Would he have changed the trajectory of events that shaped a post-1968 America? And how would events have changed him as the country evolved?
