I Don't Speak German, Episode 16 and 17 - Holocaust Denial

(9 comments)

Sorry, I forgot to post last week, so here's info about both this new episode of I Don't Speak German and the last episode.  It's fitting because they're two parts of one topic. 

Episode 16 is on the Errol Morris documentary film Mr Death: The Rise and Fall of Fred A Leuchter Jnr.  It's about the Holocaust Denier Leuchter and his connections with other deniers such as Richard Irving.

And Episode 17 is on Holocaust Denial Today, back on our normal beat.

66 Questions and Answers About the Holocaust

"First of all, consider the implicit conspiracy theory. Notice how the testimony of every single inmate of every Nazi camp is automatically dismissed as unconvincing. This total dismissal of inmates' testimony, along with the equally-total dismissal of the Nazis' own testimony (!), is the largest unspoken assumption of Holocaust-denial.

This assumption, which is not often spelled out, is that the attempted Jewish genocide never took place, but rather that a secret conspiracy of Jews, starting around 1941, planted and forged myriad documents to prove that it did; then, after the war, they rounded up all the camp survivors and told them what to say."

"The conspirators also supposedly managed to torture hundreds of key Nazis into confessing to crimes which they never committed, or into framing their fellow Nazis for those crimes, and to plant hundreds of documents in Nazi files which were never discovered until after the war, and only then, in many cases, by sheer luck.

[...]

"Regarding postwar testimony from Nazis, were they all tortured into confessing to heinous crimes which they supposedly did not commit? This might be believable if only a few Nazis were captured after the war, or maybe if some had courageously stood up in court and shouted to the world about the supposed attempt to silence them. But hundreds testified regarding the Holocaust, in trials dating from late 1945 until the 1960s."

Holocoaster at Urban Dictionary (2009)

Holocoaster meme (text source)

Inside the Concentration Camps: Eyewitness Accounts of Life in Hitler's Death Camps (1946): "800 to 900 yards from the place where the ovens were, the prisoners were squeezed into little cars that ran on rails. In Auschwitz these cars had various dimensions and could hold up to 15 people. As soon as a car was loaded, it would be set in motion on an inclined plane that traveled at full speed down a corridor. At the end of the corridor there was a wall, and in the wall was the door to the oven. As soon as the car hit the wall, the door opened automatically, and the car would dip forward and pitch its cargo of living people into the oven. Right behind it came another car with another load, and so on."

From TDS171 "The ParaStormies Present."

Enoch: Plus there's a goal here that's beyond getting fucking views and listens and shit.

Sven: Well the goal of getting using listeners is to get that to realize that bigger goal of our political aspirations.

Anglin: It's all about the numbers right now and transforming the ability of people to [gap] Certain way and normalizing shit. Yeah basically that's the entire goal is normalizing shit in people's minds. You see this stuff going on in high schools now like we have created a new youth subculture. Yes. Yes. Everything is going according to plan everything is going according to plan.

Sven: It doesn't matter who we are.

Yeah.

Enoch: But for real the the youth the under under 20 demographic is like forget about it. I was talking last night with a friend and we are talking about the Holocaust and what most of it is but how. It's hard to reach people that have had a certain level of programming.

So even even people that are like are sympathetic and right wing and like even the idea of like a white state is good. We still have this. They still get all fucked up and weird about talking about the Holocaust. But then when you talk to people that are like under 20 years old they don't give a fuck about the Holocaust. They think it's hilarious. Hitler is funny and cool and the idea of gassing Jews is like just a fucking joke. Yeah like they don't give a shit. They don't care.

Anglin: Right. You loaded a culture of complete nihilism and then somehow thought they could insulate themselves from that. Where nothing has any meaning at all. But then they're all in there like but one thing does have meaning. The Holocaust of the 6 million in the gas chambers that they get turned into lampshades. Say it doesn't work. Yeah.

Sven: And now the snake is eating its Curly Q sideburns tail.

It's funny how it's sort of like once you tell people there's nothing sacred there's nothing holy. But you know what this thing that happened to these Jews in this black and white looking shaky real camera from the 40s that nobody really knows what's going on. Like that's that's the thing. That's what you have to care about. You don't care don't care about anything else.

We care about these fucking these fucking Jews in Germany in Eastern Europe in the 40s and that's really important. What why.

Why was nothing important. Why the fuck do I give a shit about this bullshit.

Roscoe Jones "The Hebrew Connection"

"Why are there so many movies of the Shoah?
Of the garillions that allegedly died?
The Shoah was fiction.
Lies and confusion.
The Germans had nothing to hide.

So we've been told and some choose to believe it.
I know it's lies, wait and see.

Some day we'll break it, The Hebrew Connection, the white man, my brothers and me.

Who said that every kike would be found and round up, and put on a big boxcar?
Schlomo just told us that, and we all believed it.
Now it has done so much harm.
And it's too degrading to just keep stargazing.

Himmler Posen Speeches (October 4, 1943):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posen_speeches

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRO04q_lQi4

"I want to also mention a very difficult subject . . . before you, with complete candor. It should be discussed amongst us, yet nevertheless, we will never speak about it in public. Just as we did not hesitate on June 30 to carry out our duty as ordered, and stand comrades who had failed against the wall and shoot them—about which we have never spoken, and never will speak. That was, thank God, a kind of tact natural to us, a foregone conclusion of that tact, that we have never conversed about it amongst ourselves, never spoken about it, everyone . . . shuddered, and everyone was clear that the next time, he would do the same thing again, if it were commanded and necessary.

I am talking about the evacuation of the Jews, the extermination of the Jewish people. It is one of those things that is easily said. [quickly] “The Jewish people is being exterminated,” every Party member will tell you “perfectly clear, it’s part of our plans, we’re eliminating the Jews, exterminating them, a small matter.” [less quickly] And then along they all come, all the 80 million upright Germans, and each one has his decent Jew. [mockingly] They say: all the others are swine, but here is a first-class Jew. [a few people laugh] And . . . [audience cough] [carefully] . . . none of them has seen it, has endured it. Most of you will know what it means when 100 bodies lie together, when 500 are there or when there are 1000. And . . . to have seen this through and—with the exception of human weakness—to have remained decent, has made us hard and is a page of glory never mentioned and never to be mentioned. Because we know how difficult things would be, if today in every city during the bomb attacks, the burdens of war and privations, we still had Jews as secret saboteurs, agitators and instigators. We would probably be at the same stage as 16/17, if the Jews still resided in the body of the German people."

For a good account of David Irving's immolation (and any pretense holocaust deniers can be taken seriously) see www.hdot.org (Holocaust Denial on Trial) a blow by blow account of the Irving/Lipstadt Libel trial with tons of resources as to how to respond to deniers.

Holocaust denial was never about ignorance. It was always about malicious lying to get people PO'ed. Trolling before the term trolling was coined.

Although I am profoundly in support of this project (but not yet monetarily in support (sorry!)), I often worry, listening to you, that your (much warranted) condescension towards these people is counter productive. If White Nationalists are listening to you, you might not want to spit in their faces so often, particularly if you were hoping to at all influence their thinking.

I think I can say with confidence that influencing white nationalists is not a primary goal of this project.

Then in these last two episodes, which direct themselves explicitly at those who may be listening, the purpose is being muddled.

Also, this is a shame, because I had someone listening who was receptive but was turned off by the 'smarm'.

And, I gotta say, the individual has a point.

Just sayin'

Whatever the case, I'll continue to listen and (when possible) support.
