The British are at the forefront today in keeping the Holocaust alive. They send thousands of students to Auschwitz every year to be indoctrinated with lies. I have written about the British HET tours many times on my blog, including this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2013/12/06/british-students-on-het-tour-of-auschwitz-learn-about-the-block-of-death/
Now the British are contemplating a Holocaust denial law, according to a news story, which you can read in full here.
The following quote is from the news article:
[Tony] Blair’s charms and inward palms failed to win over the Israelis and Palestinians during a tricky stint as the Quartet’s Middle East envoy, so now he’s taken on another tough gig – chairman of the European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation, which aims to make Holocaust denial illegal.
First, people have every right to be outed as idiots. They should be free to say that fish get around on bikes, Qatar is an appropriate World Cup host and the Holocaust never happened. Others react accordingly. The village idiot has always been treated the same way. But criminalising stupidity? Where does that end?
Secondly, free speech is too damned important. Mess with it at your peril. Take it from a Jew. We know. Hitler denied virtually every freedom, but he started with free speech. Silencing opinion, no matter how obscene, is the first step on a perilous road.
Third, Tony’s way off-target. He’s fighting the wrong fight. Flat-out Holocaust deniers are few and febrile. These days they tend to wear red trousers and tweed jackets and stare oddly into the middle-distance. Think of goons like Nick Griffin or oafs like David Irving. Granted, Holocaust denial is still rampant throughout the Muslim world, where it is often seen alongside Jewish plans for world domination (ah, those…), but in countries where Protocols of the Elders of Zion isn’t a bestseller, you have to work harder to get an audience.
Flat out Holocaust denial is so last century. Instead, Tony should focus on the Holocaust blurrers. They’re a whole different kettle of bike-riding fish.
I suspect that I might be one of those dreaded “blurrers” or maybe an “oaf” like David Irving. I am certainly not normal because every time I see a so-called Holocaust gas chamber, I say “Something wrong!”
I assume that a “blurrer” is a person who blurs something, but there is no such word as blurrer — I checked.
I had to look up the word febrile: https://en.wikipedia.org/?title=Febrile_seizure
I have never had a “seizure” when touring a concentration camp, but I have had to suppress laughter many times on my trips to the death camps.
The proof of the Holocaust is the ruins of the gas chambers. The photo below shows the ruins of Krema II.
What is the proof that the ruins, shown in my 2005 photo above, are the ruins of a gas chamber? Oh, ye of little faith! The Holocaust is a religion. If you don’t believe in the Holocaust religion, in 19 countries, you will go to prison for 5 years.
