Revisionism

In light of friedrich braun’s recent comments, I have finally decided to address this subject. Guy White has also accused me of ducking the issue in the past. This will be my definitive statement on the matter.

1.) Lack of interest. The Holocaust has never interested me. In the past, I have tried to research the topic, but found myself bored to tears. I don’t have much interest in the Third Reich or the Second World War. I’m much more interested in Ancient, Medieval and Early Modern Europe. Having never researched the matter in any detail, I plead ignorance and take no position on the truth or falsehood of revisionist claims.

2.) Not our fight. Holocaust revisionism isn’t our fight. The United States played an important role in the destruction of Nazi Germany. Americans aren’t to blame for the death of European Jews. This black cloud hangs over the Federal Republic of Germany. If anyone should address the issue, it should be German scholars, not Americans.

3.) Not irrelevant. Holocaust revisionism is not irrelevant to White Nationalism. Jews like Elie Wiesel and Jewish organizations like the ADL are attempting to use the issue as a battering ram to erode our First Amendment rights. They want to turn the U.S. into another European banana republic by writing the concept of “hate speech” into American law. For obvious reasons, White Nationalists should vigorously oppose their efforts before they thwart our ability to organize.

4.) Common cause. Holocaust revisionism is one of the few issues in which White Nationalists are supported by conservatives and libertarians. The broader rightwing recognizes the insidious threat to free speech that those who would criminalize Holocaust revisionism represent. Banning Holocaust revisionism in the name of fighting “hate speech” is a slippery slope that will eventually come back to burn the mainstream right.

5.) Holocaustianity. A pseudo-religion has grown up around the Holocaust. It has the whole grab bag of myths, martyrs, shrines, rituals, etc. The Holocaust is unique among other historical topics. Questioning its veracity is treated as a sacrilegious act. In several European countries, it is a crime that results in prison time. Holocaustianity should be relentlessly mocked and criticized.

6.) Importance. The Holocaust plays an important role in the White guilt complex. We simply can’t dismiss the issue. It is a tragedy that American children know more about the Holocaust than the American Revolution or the Civil War. It should be demphasized.

7.) Radicals. The only revisionist I know is Ingrid Zündel, whom I have met in person, the wife of the imprisoned revisionist Ernst Zündel. This harmless elderly woman was a victim of ethnic cleansing in Russia. She has devoted much of her life to caring for disabled children. This “radical” is anything but a threat to “national security.”

8.) Like any other subject. The Holocaust should be treated like any other subject. It should be open to free inquiry. Revisionists should not be demonized, persecuted, or imprisoned for exericising their right to write about the past. A plurality of views exist about the demise of the Roman Empire. Why should the Second World War be treated any different?

9.) American revisionists. I would much rather see American revisionists writing about the Civil War, Reconstruction, the Jim Crow South and the Civil Rights Movement than the Holocaust. Jews like Eric Foner have completely rewritten the history of Reconstruction. I have stressed the importance of “changing the culture” over engaging in fruitless political campaigns. American revisionism of this sort has an important role to play in that project.

10.) Politics. The Holocaust is completely irrelevant to engaging in “practical politics.” It can be nothing but a distraction to, say, a White racialist running for Congress in Alabama. Holocaust revisionism shouldn’t be a part of a pro-White political platform.

  1. Anchorage Activist: “The three critical attributes of the Holocaust® are the demographics (how many died), the methodology (how they died), and the singularity (a unique genocide).”

    There is also the question of who did it, what was their motive, was it premeditated, and what’s wrong with the white man. The semitically correct answer is that it was coldly planned and premeditated. The white man did it because he is evil. What makes the Jewish genocide special is the motive: hate. Any doubt about that makes you a holocaust trivializer! Just as there are hate crimes and hate murders, there has been a hate genocide: the one against the Jews. Other genocides, like the one in Ukraine, were love genocides.

    A news item from last year: “the EU super state has announced that it will be introducing a range of thought crimes which include ‘racism, incitement to hatred, apology, denial or TRIVIALISATION OF GENOCIDE’-punishable by up to three years in prison.” (source)

  2. F.Scrooby: “But in Finland we have like six Jews. How can the Jews be the ones responsible for the push to open Finland’s borders to Sub-Saharans?” Well, think of it as the extremely powerful U.S. Jews, with their international “reach,” acting in concert with your few home-grown ones in places like Finland”

    On this subject: the new EU laws against genocide “trivialization” are obviously inspired by Jews, but the EU intention is to impose them even in countries that have only a handful of Jews.

  3. The holocaust is like a box of chocolates. You always know what your going to get. It’s not chocolate. And your going to jail.

  4. Hunter,

    The Holocaust has never interested me. In the past, I have tried to research the topic, but found myself bored to tears.

    That doesn’t sound very believable. The revelation that “the most documented” genocide in history is full of holes wide enough to drive a truck through wasn’t the least bit titillating?

    Anchorage,

    We show how perfectly law-abiding people have lost their jobs and their freedom for merely disputing facts about the Holocaust®. We invite people to ponder why, if the Holocaust® story is so inerrant, people are being oppressed for disputing it. We tell them that the truth requires no statutory protection; it can stand on its own merits. This approach can win constitutionalists and libertarians over to our Cause.

    Your approach is essentially correct but is unnecessarily combative as outlined above. It’s easier to start from a position of righteous indignation about the Holocaust having become a political cudgel and about people being oppressed by its use as such. “We have people rotting in jail for simply questioning the degree to which Jewish suffering during the period has been exaggerated.” [Notice that it has been exaggerated is presupposed.]

    I used this approach with great success in the early 2000s (just after the Irving trial, which is what sparked my interest in the subject — what an eye-opener). Outright “revision” makes you a moral pariah, but I never encountered any serious disagreement to opposing the imprisonment of people who simply question aspects of the saga. That might seem “light” but it opens the door. From there, there is pretty much a straight line relationship between learning more about Jews and taking a disliking to them. (That saddens me a little, because what always gets lost in this are Jews’ positive qualities. But fuck it.)

    Donald,

    In practice, however, Jews have fervently resisted assimilation and practiced cryptology to hide their Jewishness. I do not believe there is any reasonable way to accommodate Jews into a future white ethnostate, other than a small number of individuals perhaps. I think the only way to deal with the problem is to expel the Jews from white lands (to Israel, presumably).

    That’s just dumb. Your job is to expel them (or entice them to leave). Where they go is none of your business. (Unless you have something else planned for them, but then you should admit your hatred for them is existential: there was never anything different they might have done to escape your wrath.)

  5. Your job is to expel them (or entice them to leave). Where they go is none of your business.

    Did you miss the part where I said ‘presumably’? Also, the job of expelling a people is usually more than just saying ‘leave’, it inevitably involves forced resettlement, which in that case means you have to have a destination in mind. Or are you under the naive pretense that Jews will leave when asked?

    Unless you have something else planned for them, but then you should admit your hatred for them is existential: there was never anything different they might have done to escape your wrath.

    Please, don’t read such nonsense into my comments. You characterize my post as dumb and then totally ignore my entire posting history, let alone the same post you are quoting from in which I suggest that the assimilation of Jews into the white population would be acceptable under certain conditions. Heal thyself, Silver.

  6. Donald, you can forcefully resettle people in a certain location, but you can’t always make them stay there. No, I didn’t miss the part where you said ‘presumably’; that was the part that annoyed me and I characterized as ‘dumb.’ People who want to part ways with Jews have this tendency to think that the only fit part of the world for a Jew is Israel. (Often while simultaneously claiming out of the other side of their mouths that Jews are a foreign/illegal element in Palestine. I don’t give Larry Auster many points but he’s right about this.) My last point wasn’t nonsense. It cuts to the heart of the issue. Judeoskeptics often claim they hate Jews for what they do, not for what they are, which is to say that if Jews hadn’t done what we accuse them of having done but rather had done X instead, we wouldn’t have a problem. What is X? For at least half the audience in the crowd, I’d venture to guess, there is no X.

    Wrong: in tribal war it’s legitimate to copy the Jews’ hypocrisy as a tactic if it works, and it’s certainly working for the Jews. According to the Jews white survival is evil, Jewish survival is holy. WN is evil, JN is holy. A white ethnostate is evil, a Jewish ethnostate is holy. The U.S. building a border wall to keep the Mexicans out is evil, Israel building a border wall to keep the Palestinians out is holy. The Nazis adopting Nuremberg Laws for defining exactly who was and was not a Jew based on personal family bloodlines that had to be documented before you could legally marry was evil, Israel adopting a Jewish version of the Nuremberg Laws for defining exactly who was and was not a Jew based on personal family bloodlines that had to be documented before you could legally marry is holy. Genocide of the Jews is evil, genocide of the Euros is holy. WW II Eastern-front Einsatzgruppen murdering local sadistic Jewish communist commissars who’ve spent the last 20 years plundering, robbing, raping, and killing Christian Balts and Slavs is evil, U.S. Negroes murdering innocent U.S. whites after decades of being stirred up against whites by the Jews is holy. Etc., etc., etc.

    Jews aren’t the only ones who can play the brazen hypocrisy game, hypocrisy so extreme, so unheard of, you didn’t know it was humanly possible to be that slimy and dishonest till you saw the Jews doing it.

    Two can play that game. And should.

    Any Jews don’t like it? Drop your Jewish version of it and we’ll talk.

    Silver is correct. The “damned if you do damned if you don’t” attitude toward Jews (or anyone else, for that matter) is bad mojo. As is common, it’s bad mojo primarily for the message it sends our unawakened folk, and this message is about their unawakened kinsmen, not Jews (or whomever).

    True, but only when put the way you’ve put it. Leave out the fact that you’re “pegging” your policy to Jewish policy and you’ve screwed yourself.

  10. The Holocuast serves as a way to indict the Western World and thrown everyone off the trail of the much more murderous and disproportionately Jewish Bolsheviks. The Holocaust is the mirror image of Christianity with Jews as the blameless perfect victim and the Jewish race of old, calling for the destruction of Jesus, are replaced by European Christians. The Holocaust did indeed happen, but what is missing from the religion of the Holocaust is context, particularly the more mass murderous Communists or the close affiliation of Jews and Communists. I don’t think the crimes of Bolsheviks justify mass murder of random Jews or their complete annihilation as a people, and I think much of the revisionism is not terribly credible, but the real revisionism that needs to happen is the type of work undertaken by Marek Chodakiewicz which looks at Jewish crimes before during and after the war, typically under the aegis of the Communist Party, as in his work “After the Holocaust: Polish Jewish Conflict in Post-War Poland.”

  11. ‘The’ ‘Holocaust’ Big Lie offers a very good vehicle for destroying the institution that more than any other cripples our race by menticiding our children – public schools.

    IF you had what I have advocated – a White HS curriculum, you could have various professional lesson-units and such on H and the ‘holodomor,’ and you’d have something to put in parents hands for use at school board meetings. “Either teach straight history using our materials or we’re yanking our kids out” – something like that. It’s a very good thing to organize around – opposition to the blood-guilting our people, and the brainwashing of our children. Talk about changing the culture, there’s practically no better form of activism. PS are in every district of the country. They tie White taxpayers to anti-White schools and ZOG, since, as Gary North says, the curriculum used in PS are decided out of NYC – by jews and other detestables. Abolishing public schools would be one of the best things that could happen for our race short of an overt political revolution.

  12. In honour of our fallen comrades, from all the combatant nations who fought against their brothers in the Second War of White Genocide, er, “World War Two” –

    The song is: Horst Wessel Lied
    It’s a well known “soldiers song” in northern Europe.

    German original
    Die Fahne hoch! Die Reihen fest geschlossen!
    SA marschiert mit ruhig-festem Schritt.
    Kam’raden, die Rotfront und Reaktion erschossen,
    Marschier’n im Geist in uns’ren Reihen mit.
    ~
    English translation
    The flag high! The ranks tightly closed!
    SA march with calm, firm steps.
    Comrades shot by the Red Front and reactionaries
    March in spirit in our ranks.

  13. Holocaust revisionism isn’t likely to win over the masses but it’s important to chip away at this massive fraud. Jews indeed suffered like many ethnic groups in WWII but by no means were six million of them “systematically” killed in gas chambers which were a technical impossibility at that time as proven by Fred Leuchter.

    The main reason is must be deconstructed is the implication that when Europeans act collectively and pursue their group interests this invariably leads to the deaths of innocent minorities in our path, but most importantly, Jews. Since we wouldn’t want that on our conscience we must content ourselves with being second class citizens in our own lands and allow periodic killings of our own kind by rampaging third world denizens.

    I encourage the IHR and other holocaust revisionists to continue making their research available to all those with inquiry minds. It is not a pursuit that should be abandoned in a vain attempt to appease our enemies or the masses.

    The Jewish Establishment under Nazi-Threat and Domination 1938-1945
    Carl O. Nordling

    “It is obvious that wholesale extermination was not decreed by the Nazi leadership as a means to rid occupied Europe of prominent Jews, capable of influencing public opinion.”

    How Many Jews Died in the German Concentration Camps?
    Carl O. Nordling

    “The general magnitude was certainly half a million, but the actual number of Jews who died in the German concentration camps might well have been as low as 300,000 or as high as 600,000.”
