If Hitler were still alive, would Oprah interview him?

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust — Tags: , , , , , — furtherglory @ 8:50 am

Every morning, I check my blog stats to see where readers of my blog are (literally) coming from.  This morning, I found that some readers had been directed to my blog by a website, which features a fake interview, that Oprah might have conducted with Hitler if he were still alive; you can read it here.  I love this ingenious fake interview with Hitler, but there is one tiny mistake and one big mistake in the article.

The tiny mistake is this:  Two photos are shown with the caption “During the war, the Americans were very concerned about lice and typhus.”

One of the photos on the website is shown above; it is purported to be a sign in the USA, but this is actually a sign that the British put up at Bergen-Belsen, which had a huge epidemic of typhus at the end of the war.

America did not have any typhus epidemics during World War II.  America had a typhus vaccine and all of the American soldiers were vaccinated against typhus before going overseas.

DDT was first used in Italy in 1943 and during World War II, it was being sprayed every where in America.  German doctors had already discovered that DDT is harmful and they were not using it.  Instead, the Germans were killing the lice in clothing by using Zykon-B gas in a machine, such was the one pictured below.  The photo was taken at the Dachau concentration camp.

German doctors were working on developing a typhus vaccine at the Buchenwald concentration camp; you can read about this on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Buchenwald/Atrocities1.html

Now for the big mistake in the fake Oprah interview with Hitler, which is contained in this quote:

Oprah: But my understanding is that the Holocaust was well documented.

Hitler: Be careful with the use of that term, “well documented”. Propagandists will often use it as a tool of persuasion, when in fact, there is no documentation. Not only is there no documentation of this fictitious genocide, but two separate forensic tests of the ruins of the Auschwitz “gas chambers” came back negative!

Oprah: Ruins? But the gas chamber is still there at the Auschwitz museum.

Hitler: No. The Auschwitz gas chamber is a post war propaganda reconstruction. The museum curator will even tell you that, but only if you ask. What they claim was the original gas chamber lies in a pile of ruins. These ruins were indeed tested. There is therefore no forensic evidence to support the big lie.

Two photos are shown at this point in the narrative of Oprah’s interview of Hitler.

One photo shows  the ruins of Krema II (crematorium #2) at Auschwitz-Birkenau, which “lies in ruins,” and the other photo shows the gas chamber at the Auschwitz I camp, which was not blown up. You can see photos of the ruins of Krema II on one of my previous blog posts at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2011/10/09/are-the-ruins-of-auschwitz-collapsing/

The photo of the Auschwitz I gas chamber on the fake Oprah interview website is similar to the photo below.

The photo above shows the ruins of the oven room in Krema II, not the  ruins of the alleged Krema II gas chamber.  The ruins of the alleged gas chamber in Krema II were “indeed tested” by Germar Rudolf and Fred Leuchter, both of whom  climbed down into the ruins of the alleged gas chamber and did not find enough evidence of Zyklon-B residue, which would prove that it was a gas chamber.

The ruins of the alleged Krema II gas chamber are shown below.

The alleged gas chamber in the main Auschwitz camp was converted into a bomb shelter by the Germans.  For 50 years, the tour guides at Auschwitz told visitors that the alleged gas chamber was original, although it is really a reconstruction, done by the Soviet Union.

Oprah’s interview with Mark Fuhrman, the detective in the O.J. Simpson case

Filed under: True Crime, TV shows — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 9:15 am

Yesterday Oprah did one of her best interviews when she talked with Mark Fuhrman, one of the detectives in the O.J. Simpson murder case.  This was Oprah’s second interview of Fuhrman.

The most astonishing thing that Mark Fuhrman said in his interview with Oprah was that O.J. “didn’t go there to kill two people.”  He went on to explain that O.J. “had a history of stalking” Nicole and spying on her. He said that Nicole “saw him hiding in the bushes,” and this was what led to the murder of her and Ron Goldman. He said that O.J. “knew of her relationship with Ron Goldman.”

Since O.J. didn’t go to Nicole’s condo with the intent to kill her, according to Fuhrman, this means that it was not first degree murder.   (more…)

Oprah and Elie Wiesel on their trip to Auschwitz in 2006

Filed under: Holocaust, TV shows — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 8:46 pm

In January 2006, Oprah Winfrey chose Elie Wiesel’s book Night for her Book Club selection.  Her previous selection had been James Frey’s memoir entitled A Million Little Pieces, which was later revealed to be full of lies.  So Oprah needed to find a book for her Book Club selection, which would be the absolute truth and would not turn out to be another fake.

Oprah traveled to Auschwitz with Elie Wiesel in 2006, in the dead of winter, and walked the grounds of the Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II (Birkenau) camps.  The film of their trip was not aired until May 24, 2006, a long time for Oprah’s Book Club readers to wait.

Oprah did a good job of pronouncing all the words correctly, but she seemed to be at a loss for how to respond to Elie’s comments.  All she could do was echo Elie’s words, repeating what he had just said.

Oprah seemed to be confused about the gas chambers, which Elie didn’t mention in his book, Night.  She brought up the burning pits where Elie saw babies being burned alive, according to his book.

Elie’s narration in the film includes some contradictions: Auschwitz II (Birkenau) was a “death factory” where the average life expectancy was four months, but there are acres of barracks, and the ruins of barracks, as far as the eye can see at Birkenau, where the prisoners were sleeping two and three to a bunk, according to Elie.  Why were there so many barracks in a death camp where people were gassed, or thrown into burning pits, upon arrival?  There were no factories at Birkenau, so why were there so many prisoners living in the barracks there?

Elie took Oprah to see the exterior of Barrack #17 in the Auschwitz main camp, where he was put into quarantine for a few weeks before being sent to work at Auschwitz III (Monowitz), but he didn’t explain that he survived because he was put to work in a factory.

One thing that Elie told Oprah, which I found to be strange, was that any SS man had the right to kill anyone at Auschwitz at any time. The Germans are famous for their strict discipline, but apparently not at Auschwitz, where the SS men had no rules to govern their behavior.

It seems that Oprah did not do any research for the trip to Auschwitz, except for reading Night, and she didn’t ask “the hard questions,” as she usually does.

There is a new web site with the title “Elie Wiesel Cons The World” which you can read here.
