Bill O’Reilly has been kicked to the curb

Filed under: TV shows, Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 3:09 pm

There have been rumors for days, about Bill O’Reilly; finally the day has come: O’Reilly has been kicked out of his TV show.

You can read all about it in this news article: https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/bill-oreilly-is-officially-out-at-fox-news/2017/04/19/74ebdc94-2476-11e7-a1b3-faff0034e2de_story.html?utm_term=.5dae0cc9bd52

This all started when O’Reilly insulted Megan Kelly on his TV news show. The insult was something about “blood coming out of her what-ever.” Or was it Donald Trump who hurled that insult? Bill and the Donald are like two peas in a pod.

The following quote is from the news article cited above:

Begin quote

Fox News on Wednesday ended its association with Bill O’Reilly, the combative TV host and commentator who has ruled cable-news ratings for nearly two decades and was the signature figure in the network’s rise as a powerful political player.

The conservative-leaning host’s downfall was swift and steep, set in motion less than three weeks ago by revelations of a string of sexual harassment complaints against him. The questions about his conduct represented yet another black eye to Fox, which had dealt with a sexual harassment scandal involving its co-founder and then-chairman Roger Ailes, just last summer.

You can read all about the gas chamber at Auschwitz on my website at https://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/Tour/Auschwitz1/Auschwitz08.html

The title of my blog post today is a quote from a news article which you can read in full at

https://www.theguardian.com/law/2017/apr/18/opening-un-holocaust-files-archive-war-crimes-commission

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

War crimes files revealing early evidence of Holocaust death camps that was smuggled out of eastern Europe are among tens of thousands of files to be made public for the first time this week.

[….]

The Polish government in exile, the files also record, supplied extraordinarily detailed descriptions to the UNWCC of concentration camps such as Treblinka and Auschwitz, where millions of Jews were gassed. The accounts had been smuggled out of occupied eastern Europe. A charge sheet from April 1944 mention victims being forced to strip off clothing and how “the terracotta floors in the [gas] chambers … became very slippery when wet”.

End quote

When I remodeled my 1938 house, I wanted to have a terracotta floor in my kitchen, but my builder told me that few people in America in 1938 were rich enough to have a terracotta floor. I settled for a more appropriate floor in light green.

The gas chambers at Treblinka have been destroyed and there is nothing left of them, but the gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp is still there. My photo below shows the Auschwitz gas chamber.

My 2005 photo of Auschwitz gas chamber

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think that a terracotta floor would be red in color.  A terracotta floor is very expensive, Why would such a floor be put into a gas chamber?

Wolf Blitzer — the son of two Holocaust survivors

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 2:56 pm

What are the chances that two Holocaust survivors would marry and produce a son who would become a world famous journalist?

Wolf Blitzer Grills Sean Spicer on Holocaust: Did You ‘Not Know’ Nazis Used Gas Chambers?

Quoted above is the headline of a recent news article: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2017/04/11/wolf-blitzer-grills-sean-spicer-on-holocaust-did-you-not-know-nazis-used-gas-chambers.html

The following quote is from the article:

Begin quote

A pained-looking Sean Spicer faced off with a disgusted Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday evening in a tense exchange that did not leave the White House press secretary in better shape following his outrageous claim earlier in the day that Adolf Hitler “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons” in World War II.

First, Blitzer just wanted to know why Spicer decided to make an analogy between Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and the perpetrator of the Holocaust in the first place. “As you know, 6 million Jews were killed in the Holocaust, many of them with poison gas,” the CNN anchor reminded his guest.

“I was obviously trying to make a point about the heinous acts that Assad had made against his own people last week using chemical weapons and gas,” Spicer said. “And frankly, I mistakenly used an inappropriate and insensitive reference to the Holocaust, for which frankly, there is no comparison. For that, I apologize. It was a mistake to do that.”

End quote

Excuse me, but I don’t think that a world famous news man should complain about someone not mentioning the Holocaust. Wolf Blitzer will cause more people to deny the Holocaust. What kind of Holocaust is it when two people are left alive, to produce  a world famous journalist?

The Lithuanian Jews are back in the news

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 11:52 am

You can read about the Lithuanian Jews in this news story:

http://www.timesofisrael.com/science-helped-verify-this-unbelievable-holocaust-escape-story/

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

“Holocaust Escape Tunnel,” a “Nova” production to be shown April 19, sheds new light on the attempt by 80 imprisoned men and women — mostly Lithuanian Jews — to make a break for freedom in the face of Nazi bullets. The show documents the application of scientific methods to verify what would otherwise be a nearly unbelievable story.

The documentary is set in and around Vilna, the Yiddish and Hebrew designation for Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. At its peak, before World War II and the Holocaust, the city boasted a Jewish population of some 77,000, had 105 synagogues, the largest Jewish library in the world and six daily Jewish newspapers.

End quote

I have written about the Lithuanian Jews several times on these blog posts:

https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/tag/lithuanian-jews/

Unfortunately, many people do not believe the story of the Lithuanian Jews. I do not believe it either.

How many Romanis were killed in the Holocaust?

Filed under: Buchenwald, Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 9:35 am

A reader of my blog wrote this in a comment: “No one should mock the holocaust and, by the way, it was not just Jews but Romanies,” [who were killed in the Holocaust]

I mentioned Romany prisoners on this page of my website: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Buchenwald/Liberation7.html

The following quote is from my kosher website, written before I became a Holocaust denier:

Begin quote

The quarantine camp [at Buchenwald], known as the “Small Camp” was a different story. This isolated camp at the bottom of the hill held the sick and the dying, who were mainly the Jewish and Romany prisoners who had recently arrived after being evacuated from the camps in the east.

End quote

So it turns out that the Romany prisoners were not killed at Auschwitz. They were saved, to live another day, and transported out of the camp to places like Buchenwald in Germany.

This quote is also from my kosher website, written before I became a Holocaust denier:

Begin quote

In the first days after the liberation of Buchenwald, the political prisoners who had been freed by the Americans, hunted down 76 of the camp guards who had escaped into the surrounding woods, according to The Buchenwald Report. They were brought back to the camp and killed.

According to Robert Abzug in his book entitled “Inside the Vicious Heart,” the inmates “killed almost eighty ex-guards and camp functionaries in the days following the liberation, sometimes with the aid and encouragement of Americans.”

In his book Abzug quotes one of the liberators, Fred Mercer:

Begin quote

… a German soldier attempted to surrender to the Americans, but was intercepted by a prisoner with a four-foot wood log: “He just stood there and beat him to death. He had to – of course, we didn’t bother him.”

American newspaper reporter Marguerite Higgins wrote in her book “News is a Singular Thing,” that 20 to 30 American soldiers took turns beating 6 young German guards to death at Buchenwald.

Oh no! Is Donald Trump going to lose his twitter account?

Filed under: Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 11:37 am

I signed up for Twitter a few months ago, but I have not been able to bring myself to tweet. Nobody cares what I have to say anyway.

This morning, I was horrified to learn, in this news story, that Trump’s twitter account might be taken away from him: https://qz.com/959639/north-korea-tensions-show-its-time-to-take-twitter-away-from-donald-trump/

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Donald Trump’s personal Twitter account is one of the reasons that he won the 2016 US presidential election. It allowed him to insult challengers and refute naysayers, build his fanbase by hand, and launch a new subgroup of political coverage.

But as US president, Trump’s use of the social network to bully foreign governments is dangerous, as the Chinese government seemed to say today. “We call on all parties to refrain from provoking and threatening each other, whether in words or actions, and not let the situation get to an irreversible and unmanageable stage,” China’s foreign minister warned.

End quote

Trump should be advised that the worst thing that can happen to a Chinese man is to “lose face”.  This happens when a Chinese man is insulted or mocked. I am not sure if Chinese women “lose face”. I believe that Chinese women do not have any “face” to lose, but I could be wrong. I learned all about the Chinese losing face from my Chinese doctor, who came to America a few years ago, straight from China.

When a Chinese man loses face, the usual remedy is for him to kill himself.  Hopefully, this will not happen.

That’s all she wrote, and she rubbed that out.

 

Holocaust survivor Roman Kent is speaking out

Filed under: Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 8:24 am

You can read the tragic story of Roman Kent in this news article:

https://mic.com/articles/174089/holocaust-survivor-sean-spicer-roman-kent-ignorance#.pPewY1NLd

Roman Kent — Holocaust survivor

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Holocaust survivor Roman Kent is speaking out after White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s now-infamous remarks on Tuesday. Spicer suggested at a press briefing that Syrian President Bashar Assad committed acts worse than Adolf Hitler because even Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons against his own people.

Kent, who was born in Poland in the 1920s, and arrived in the United States in 1946 after spending the war in the Auschwitz, Mertzbachtal, Dornau and Flossenburg concentration camps, spoke to Mic in an exclusive interview in his office in New York City.

“He said, ‘Anybody can make a mistake,'” Kent said of Spicer’s apology in an emotional interview. “I agree with that. Anybody can make a mistake. But that’s not a mistake. That’s ignorance. … To have a person ignorant like this at the helm of our government — because press secretary is very important — it’s tragic.”

End quote

Note that, according to the news article,  Roman Kent, who was born in Poland in the 1920s, arrived in the United States in 1946 after spending the war in the Auschwitz, Mertzbachtal, Dornau and Flossenburg concentration camps.

Flossenbürg ? Why was he sent there? The Nazis were having trouble killing him? So they had to send him to “a number of camps”?

According to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC, between April 15 and April 20, 1945, there were 9,300 prisoners in the main Flossenbürg concentration camp, including approximately 1,700 Jews, who were evacuated to Dachau on foot and on trains. Around 2,000 sick prisoners had been left behind because they were too sick to walk.

There were also around 7,000 prisoners, that had been previously evacuated from Buchenwald on the Death Train to Flossenbürg, who joined the evacuation out of Flossenbürg. The trains stopped in the town of Namering where the citizens brought food and water to the prisoners.

Excuse me! I think that the Nazis were trying their best to save Roman Kent, not kill him. The reason that he was put into a camp was to prevent him from helping the enemy during war time.

Getting back to basics…

Filed under: Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 8:34 am

Every morning, as soon as I wake up, I turn on my computer and check the number of people who have read my blog the day before. For some reason, these numbers are going higher and higher. People are being directed to my blog on Facebook.

I suspect that these new readers are young people who are new to the zoo. Very soon, America will become the 21st country to pass a Holocaust denial law. That means that you will spend 5 years or more in prison if you deny the story of the Holocaust, as told by the Jews.

You can start educating yourself by reading what the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum says about the Holocaust: https://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?ModuleId=10005143

Being quote

The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. Holocaust is a word of Greek origin meaning “sacrifice by fire.” The Nazis, who came to power in Germany in January 1933, believed that Germans were “racially superior” and that the Jews, deemed “inferior,” were an alien threat to the so-called German racial community.

During the era of the Holocaust, German authorities also targeted other groups because of their perceived “racial inferiority”: Roma (Gypsies), the disabled, and some of the Slavic peoples (Poles, Russians, and others). Other groups were persecuted on political, ideological, and behavioral grounds, among them Communists, Socialists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and homosexuals.

End quote

I have a whole section on my scrapbookpages.com website about the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC.

http://www.scrapbookpages.com/USHMM/index.html

Start by reading this page about the Holocaust Museum:

http://www.scrapbookpages.com/USHMM/Intro.html

When I visited the Holocaust Museum on two successive days, I saw only one person that I could identify as Jewish. He was laughing his head off at the exhibits.  The Holocaust Museum is a place for the goyim to worship the Jews, not a place for the Jews to visit.

The entrance to the Holocaust Museum is on the left; the Washington Monument is in the background

The Holocaust Museum is not really in the shadow of the Washington Monument, but it is very close to the monument.

Hitler never gassed London

Filed under: Germany, Uncategorized, World War II — furtherglory @ 4:56 pm

Sean Spicer had it right the first time.  Hitler did not sink so low as to use poison gas.  Hitler could have loaded up his V-2 rockets with a nerve agent called Tabun and dropped the rockets into London.  This would have wiped out most of the city’s population.  The Germans manufactured at least 12,000 tons of Tabun between 1942 and 1945.

You can read all about it on wikipedia here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tabun_(nerve_agent)https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tabun_(nerve_agent)

But Hitler never “sunk to using poison gas” against England, nor against Russia, nor against the Americans when they invaded Europe after D-Day.

I have read claims that, after the bombing of Dresden,  Goebbels suggested that Germany should retaliate with poison gas, and by shooting all of the downed pilots, but Hitler rejected the idea.

Sean Spicer apologized Tuesday after saying Adolf Hitler “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons”

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Uncategorized — Tags: , — furtherglory @ 7:47 am

Listen up people!

Get the facts straight about the Holocaust and Hitler’s use of Zyklon-B gas to kill handicapped children and Jews.

You can read about the gas chamber used at Auschwitz on this page of my website: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/AuschwitzScrapbook/Tour/Auschwitz1/Auschwitz08.html

The first thing that I saw on TV this morning was a very subdued Sean Spicer apologizing for his mistakes when he talked about gassing people. It was mentioned that handicapped children were gassed, implying that these children had only a minor handicap.

You can read about the handicapped children who were killed at Hartheim on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Hartheim/exhibits01.html

You can read the latest news about Spicer at https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/apr/11/sean-spicers-hitler-holocaust-speak-volumes

My photo of the reconstructed gas input device at Hartheim Castle where handicapped children were gassed

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Under the rule of Adolf Hitler, German authorities, beginning in 1939, gassed millions of people to death. The first victims were German citizens deemed handicapped and thus “unfit for life.”

End quote

On my website, you can read about the gas chamber at Hartheim Castle, and see photos of the gas chamber where handicapped people were killed: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Hartheim/gaschamber01a.html

The news article continues with this quote:

Begin quote

After Germans with local assistance had shot about a million Jews in Eastern Europe, gassing was added as a second technique of mass murder. Jews were killed by carbon monoxide at Chelmno, Belzec, Sobibor and Treblinka, and by hydrogen cyanide at Auschwitz.

Spicer’s comments on Tuesday must be understood in the context of how the White House chose to reflect upon Holocaust Memorial Day in January: by deliberately ignoring the Jewish victims of the Holocaust. This is the key to the whole affair: the White House cannot acknowledge the basic politics of the Holocaust.

This incredible statement by Spicer – which erases the use of deadly chemical agents by Nazi Germany – fits very well into the general historical politics of the Trump administration. The name of Hitler is invoked to criticize the enemy of the moment (today Assad, not long ago American intelligence officers).

The general consequence is to minimize the scale of Hitler’s crimes: we are instructed that intelligence agencies are acting like Nazi Germany, or we learn what Hitler supposedly did not do. And this is an administration that is not very clear on what Adolf Hitler in fact did.
