Men banned from using Canada Post over controversial publication challenge minister’s order – CBC.ca

James Sears won’t be sending Easter cards this year for fear of facing a criminal charge.

“I cannot even ask my wife to mail on my behalf because I am prohibited from having people mail on my behalf,” he told CBC News.

Sears and another man are subject to a rare prohibitory order from the minister responsible for Canada Post, banning them from sending anything through the mail.

Sears is editor and Laurence St. Germaine ispublisher of Toronto-based newspaper Your Ward News. For years, mail carriers have protested having to deliver it and many have complained about it being distributed in their neighbourhoods.

The paper is filled with offensive imagery and writing aimed at just about every identifiable group, discredited theories on topics such as immunizations as well as personal attacks on high-profile Canadians.

“We no longer wanted this racist, misogynistic, anti-Jewish, anti-Muslim, anti-gay hate rag in our neighbourhood,” said Lisa Kinsella, who represents a broad coalition of people opposed to the publication.

“It’s not free speech. I know that this is the argument, but hate propaganda is not free speech,” she said.

Since making her feelings public, Kinsella and her husband, lawyer and consultant Warren Kinsella, have both become regular targets in the newspaper.

The interim order was made more than nine months ago under Section 43 of the Canada Post Act. Sears and St. Germaine have yet to get a hearing.

Public Services Minister JudyFoote’s office said the ministerappointed an independent board of review on Dec. 9, 2016. The members are three renowned people from legal and academic circles: Fareen Jamal, Elizabeth Forster and Peter John Loewen.

Sears and St. Germaine have hired prominent defence lawyer Frank Addario to represent them.

“There’s a lot of crap in the mail and itis not a crime in Canada to publish or distribute defiant or even odious ideas in writing. It is a crime to distribute hate propaganda or defamatory libel,” Addario said, adding his clients have never been charged with any hate-related offence.

“Thestate has not put any corresponding obligation on itself to act swiftly after it takes away the citizen’s right to use the postal service for purposes of free expression.”

Lawyer Frank Addario, who represents James Sears and Lawrence St. Germaine, says neither has been charged with a hate-related crime. (CBC)

Addario intends to challenge the constitutionality of the minister’s powers. As it is unlikely the board could entertain a constitutional question, Addario said the next stop would be Federal Court.

“Right now, the minister’s power is too broad, too discretionary for something so important as expressive freedom. So the minister’s power needs to be reined in, if she’s going to be running a monopoly that delivers expressive publications,” Addario said.

But Kinsella applauds the minister for choosing to exercise her authority.

“She saw the content, it was brought to her attention. She didn’t like what she saw and she decided the government would not be using a Crown asset to deliver it any more,” Kinsella said.

Not surprisingly, Sears disagrees.

James Sears and Lawrence St. Germaine have been prohibited from using Canada Post over complaints about their publication Your Ward News.

“The Liberal government did it because the Liberal government doesn’t like what we say. And maybe in future a far right-wing government won’t like what left-wing people say,” he warned.

The minister responsible for Canada Post has only twice before issued a prohibitionary order and only one of them was aimed at preventing the spread of hate speech.

In 1981, the then-minister issued an interim order against Samsidat Publishers, which was owned by convicted Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel.

In that case, the order lasted just a few months before it was overturned by the board of review.

Students denounce posters questioning Holocaust at University of Calgary – CBC.ca

Some students at the University of Calgary are speaking out after posters questioning whether six million Jews were really killed in the Holocaust were put up around the campus.

The dozen or so posters were taken down immediately last week.

Jordan Waldman, head of Hillel Calgary, a students’ group affiliated with the Calgary Jewish Federation, says the messages were blatantly anti-Semitic.

“The six million who died in the Holocaust, that is a number that’s been proven. It’s not up for academic debate,” he said.

“So this question in itself, it’s a poster promoting Holocaust denial.”

It’s the second troubling incident of its kind so far this academic year, said Students’ Union president Stephen Guscott. Last fall, dozens of anti-Muslim posters showed up on campus.

“I think it’s really disappointing and shocking that inflammatory posters like this were put up around campus,” he said.

“I think it’s really important for our campus to have a focus on diversity and inclusivity, and I think posters like this stand in the way of that.”

According to B’Nai Brith Canada, the”Committee for Open Debate on the Holocaust” (CODOH) has taken credit for putting up the posters.

“Prominent CODOH figuresinclude German-Canadian Holocaust deniers Alfred and Monika Schaefer, and suspended University of Lethbridge professor Anthony Hall,” B’Nai Brithsaid in a press release.

U of C student Nolan Hill, who sawone of the posters taped to a door at MacEwan Hall, the main student centre, later looked up some of thenames and organizations mentioned on it.

“They were all coming up as very prominent Holocaust deniers,” he said.

Among the names listed on one of the posters was infamous neo-Nazi Ernst Zundel, who was convicted in Canada for “spreading false news” before the Supreme Court overturned the conviction, saying that the charge violated his Charter right to freedom of expression. Zundel was then deported to his native Germany, where he served five years for inciting racial hatred.

“So it’s just really concerning that someone would think to put those up here, because I think we are quite a welcoming and diverse campus,” Hill said.

In a written statement, the university says it is committed to open debate and a diversity of opinion while sustaining an inclusive and respectful environment.

About a dozen posters, like this one, questioning whether six million Jews were killed in the Holocaust, were put up on doors and walls around the U of C recently. (The Gauntlet)

B.C. court rejects appeal of man who said Jews should be sterilized – Canadian Jewish News (blog)

The British Columbia Supreme Court has rejected the appeal of a Quesnel, B.C., man convicted of promoting hatred against Jewish people in November 2015.

On his website, RadicalPress.com, Arthur Topham wrote that Jews should be forcibly sterilized. He described Canada as being controlled by the Zionist lobby and said Jewish synagogues are synagogues of Satan.

Harry Abrams, who was the representative for the Bnai Brith Canadas League for Human Rights in 2007, when he was the first to raise the alarm about Tophams anti-Semitic writing, said hed like to see Topham receive the maximum sentence of two years.

READ: RABIDLY ANTI-SEMITIC B.C. MAN CONVICTED OF HATE CRIME

He was convicted in 2015 by a jury of his peers, and hes dragged it out, kept everything up on his website since then and added to it over all this time, said Abrams, who now serves as chair of community relations for the Jewish Federation of Victoria and Vancouver Island.

Its all been hateful, deliberate and with the intention of causing maximum pain and fear to Jews. Hes a sick guy and there has to be some kind of backstop on this.

The Feb. 20 ruling by the B.C. Supreme Court is an important one, said Aidan Fishman, who worked closely with Amanda Hohmann, national director of Bnai Briths League for Human Rights, on this case.

The argument by Tophams lawyer, Barclay W. Johnson, that the law that criminalizes hate speech in Canada is unconstitutional, had no merit in my opinion, he said.

Basically they were arguing that the presence of the Internet, and the fact that information is more widely available because of it, changes whether that material is constitutional or not. The judge firmly rejected that argument. He wrote in his decision that it actually makes the offence even more serious, by virtue of the fact that its much easier to disseminate hate today, Fishman added.

This also means that when faced with incidents of hate, especially online, police and prosecutors should press charges because theres no evidence those charges wont succeed, so theres no excuse for not enforcing them.

Abrams speculated Topham might try to appeal this conviction to the B.C. Court of Appeal.

Johnson said he had not received any instructions from his client about an appeal.

He noted that he shared office space with Tophams former lawyer, Doug Christie, who died in March 2013 after a long career in which he gained notoriety for defending Holocaust deniers such as Ernst Zundel and James Keegstra.

On his deathbed, I told [Christie] Id look after the rest of his files, and this was one of them, Johnson said.

My interest was piqued by going over the issues related to freedom of expression. Ninety-nine percent of the material Arthur Topham posted from other sources is available on the Internet, so the question is, what do you do about all this wickedness? I dont think you use the Criminal Code, he said. We argued that the protections afforded in Canada are of little assistance if you weigh them against whats available worldwide.

Johnson said Topham does not have a criminal record, and hes hopeful he would not serve time in jail.

But Abrams begged to differ.

I really think he should spend a couple of years in jail. Hes sadistic and racist, and hes worked really hard for it.

Johnson said Tophams sentencing is scheduled for March 10.

Hans Schmidt (Waffen-SS) – Wikipedia

Hans Schmidt Born (1927-04-24)April 24, 1927 Vlklingen, Germany Died May 30, 2010(2010-05-30) (aged83) Nationality naturalized American Occupation businessman, political activist Knownfor veteran of the Waffen-SS founder of the German-American National Political Action Committee (GANPAC)

Hans Schmidt (24 April 1927 30 May 2010) was a German-born naturalized American citizen, member of the Waffen-SS during World War II, and founder of the German-American National Political Action Committee (GANPAC). He was primarily known for his promotion of White separatism, National Socialism, antisemitism, and Holocaust denial. Schmidt was arrested in Germany on hate charges in 1995, but avoided standing trial by returning to the USA while released on bail.[1]

Schmidt was born on 24 April 1927, in Vlklingen. During Nazi rule, he was a member of the Hitler Youth, and, by his own account, joined the Waffen-SS in 1943 at the age of 16,[2] and served as a corporal in the SS Division Leibstandarte. Schmidt and was wounded twice during campaigns in Hungary, Austria, and the Battle of the Bulge.[3][unreliable source?] He left Germany in 1947, arrived in the United States in 1949, and became a naturalized citizen in 1955 in Chicago.[4]

In 1983, Schmidt founded the German-American National Political Action Committee (GANPAC), which published the GANPAC Brief in English and the USA-Bericht ([U.S.A. Report]) in German. GANPAC was characterized as “pretending to represent the 52 million Americans of German descent” by the German magazine Der Spiegel,[5] as “openly anti-Semitic” by the New York Times,[6] and as “virulently anti-Semitic” by the Anti-Defamation League.[7] GANPAC was also accused of promoting Holocaust denial.[8]

Between 1983 and 1985, GANPAC raised about $55,000 in contributions,[9] but, unlike other political action committees, did not make any financial contributions until the late 1980s, when it began donating money to the election campaigns of conservative Republican candidates. When U.S. Senator Steve Symms gave a $1,000 contribution from GANPAC to the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith and the Idaho Holocaust Council, Schmidt complained to the Federal Election Commission.[6] GANPAC also made a contribution to Democrat Bob Edgar who was running against Jewish Republican candidate Arlen Specter.[10]

The Santa Monica offices of GANPAC were fire-bombed in 1985, causing $50,000 in damage. Schmidt claimed the Jewish Defense League carried out the attack, a claim the JDL rejected.[11]

The GANPAC Brief was published out of Washington, D.C. (1983-1989), Santa Monica, California (1990-1993), Burke, Virginia (JanuaryMarch 1994), and Pensacola, Florida (April 1994-July 2004).[12]

Schmidt also founded the German-American Information and Education Association (GIEA), which is presided over by E. Stanley Rittenhouse, a known anti-Semite,[1] who “served as chief legislative representative for the Liberty Lobby,[13] a far right organization founded by Willis Carto, whom the Anti-Defamation League calls “perhaps the most influential professional anti-Semite in the United States”.[14]

In one of his last speeches, William Luther Pierce briefly discussed a longtime friendship with Hans Schmidt.[15]

On 9 August 1995[16] Schmidt was arrested at the Frankfurt airport by German authorities after copies of his newsletter, USA-Bericht, were discovered. He was charged with “incitement to hate” (Volksverhetzung in German) as a result of a letter he had sent to a German state legislator in Schwerin.[4] Schmidt came to regard the German government as treasonous and controlled by “Oberjuden” (“top Jews”),[8] and claimed the U.S. embassy provided false information to Germany to persecute him.[17] The ADL applauded his arrest.[18] Due to poor health, he was released on bail in January 1996. He fled Germany and returned to the USA to avoid further persecution.[17] He wrote a book about this experience, titled Jailed in Democratic Germany (1997).

Schmidt spent his later years trying to challenge Jewish influence, first by calling for a repeal of the non-existent “Kosher tax” (specifically addressing the Adolph Coors Brewing Co.),[19] and later by writing a book entitled End Times/End Games (1999) where he lamented at length the problems Jews had caused for Nazis like himself and begged them to voluntarily leave any Western nations they lived in. He was left dispirited by the complete dismissal of his demands[citation needed] and largely vanished from any role in neo-Nazi circles after Ernst Zundel was deported to Germany.[citation needed] Schmidt died in 2010; he had no known survivors.[citation needed]

Germany: Since 1945 a Vassal State to Israel | Veterans Today

By Dr. Ingrid R. Zundel on July 24, 2016

An 87-year-old lady of high intelligence and spotless reputation, Frau Ursula Haverbeck of Vlotho, Germany, has recently been sentenced to 10 months in prison for speaking out against incessant German-bashing. What did she say? Demanding proof about alleged atrocities in Auschwitz, as so repeatedly and vociferously claimed. She saysno such proof can be found.

Sheer heresy!

Specifically, Ms. Haverbeck insists that Auschwitz was a work camp, not a death camp. Thats good news isnt it? She agreed that there were casualties as there will be in any war but no deaths due to gassings. There never was a Fhrer plan to kill the Jews of Europe in government-sponsored, industrial-type fashion.

She said all this, and more,on an hour-long national television show called Panorama, similar to Americas Sixty Minutes.

Frau Haverbeck (right) is certainly no skinhead. She comes across as poised, articulate, and very well-informed. For her heretical assertions, she is expected to be incarcerated for almost an entire year. For her principled stand on behalf of historical truth, she earned herself the leftist slur Nazi-Oma, repeated with palpable relish on just about every European network and print syndication.

Off with her head!

As Ian Greenlaugh, a VT colleague of mine, noted this morning:

What sort of nation throws 87-year-old women into jail for speaking the truth? Certainly not one that can consider itself to be a functioning free and fair democracy.

A free and fair democracy? Well, thats exactly what Germany is not . Were talking faux democracy. The Bundesrepublik, as a truncated post-war Germany has been rechristened, is still a vassal state, a fossil of a war lost by the German military more than seven decades ago, as we are never allowed to forget.

Heres whats not widely understood. Germany is an Allied -occupied colony and has been for more than 70+ years, despite a threadbare democratic faade. A conquerors ceasefire was declared in 1945 when the military arm of the Third Reich surrendered. A pro forma ceasefire came into effecton the 8th of May 1945 as part of the military alliance called NATO. But there was never a peace treaty. Ever.

A genuine peace treaty was never allowed to be born.

It is my firm contention that World War II didnt end. In Germany, there is a bitter saying that the Bundesrepublik has been installed to keep the Americans in, the Russians out, and the Germans down. That folkish wisdom fits the situation.

In 1998 inan interview taped five years before Ernst Zundel was politically kidnapped in broad daylight on American soil, he explained to an Israeli reporter exactly what this means:

Germanys political enemies currently in charge of that chunk of real estate, called Germany in the vernacular, have succeeded in inducing guilt complexes into an entire unsuspecting population leading to the classic symptoms of the massive national psychosis that we can see today. A jokester once observed that there are more televisions in Germany than there are bathtubs, which means that brains gets scrubbed more often and more thoroughly than backsides.

After seventy+years after the Third Reich surrendered, Germany is still an occupied country, a fact kept from the German people, re-educated to the hilt. Your average German has not the faintest clue.

Induced insanity, as Dr. Rigolf Hennig, a noted German psychiatrist, has stated, has little to do with intelligence but a great deal to do with suspension of logical thought brought about by pseudo-religious indoctrination.

Let me try to explain that to you. As the Catholic Church relies on Infallibility, politically beholden judges in the German courts rely on Manifest Obviousness or Offenkundigkeit roughly akin to the Anglo-Saxon concept of Judicial Notice meaning what exists need not be proven. Tuesday follows Monday. The sun sets in the West. The moon shines brightat night. Moscowis the capital of Russia. Guilt on the German character is fixed for all eternity. They gassed six million Jews.

Disbarred attorney Horst Mahler, who was sentenced to more than 10 years for his politically incorrect statements

What do you call a country in the very heart of Europe that does not have its own elected government? A USA protectorate? An Israeli colony? A trial run for the New World Order? Twistspeak in the Orwellian mode?

Here is the seamy tale. Legally, the Bundesrepublik is not the legitimate successor to the Reich. Even Germanys own highest Constitutional Court affirmed it. It cannot be the legitimate successor because, under international law, the Reich is still the legitimate state and two states cannot legally govern the same geographic area at the same time. Just as Russia didnt disappear after the Soviet regime collapsed, the German Reich continues to exist, regardless of politically motivated claims to the contrary.

Offenkundigkeit exists to enforce political dogma and punish heresy. It means that if you are unlucky enough to end up with a legitimate question for instance, Did Six Million Really Die? before a judge who toes the expected political line, the fix is in for you before the trial even begins. A defense on the merits of your case is strictly precluded by law. You are not allowed to argue what you suspect to be true, or what you know to be true, or what you can prove to be true. Offenkundigkeit stands in the courtroom like the golem that it is and you better stand at attention!

You are forbidden by law to bolster your assertion or even your opinion with evidence such as forensicfacts and if an attorney is foolish enough to insist, he or she is guilty of the same crime as his or her defendant guilty by mere association and intent.

Think of it this way: A man of impeccable repute is falsely accused of being a thief. Since most defendants are unschooled on details of the law, he may assume that he must prove his innocence. Not so! According to law and convention, the state must prove he stole.

He claims he didnt steal. He argues theres no evidence he stole. He gets himself a lawyer. The lawyer argues that the accusation cant be true where is the evidence? The judge replies: Its obvious. Offenkundig. Are you a thief yourself? Shut up or else, Ill sentence you for stealing.

Offenkundigkeit has, thus, become the Holy Cow of German jurisprudence regarding so-called war crimes and, lately, hate speech crimes. It gives beholden judges court jester license.

How can a defense attorney then offer a solid rebuttal, if the law not only forbids it but endangers the attorney himself? The short answer is that he cant. The long answer is written on the wind.

Ernst Zundel (left) with his long-term German attorney, Jrgen Rieger, who died mysteriosly after his clients trial of a sudden heart attack

The German war crimes trials and now their modern version, hate crimes trials, are a farce. They are the bull horns of a military occupation that likes to dress itself in democratic finery but is, in fact, an autocratic instrument enforcing a false history. The simple truthis that the German Reich was not obliterated when the German Wehrmacht surrendered. It was kept feeble on purpose by the victorious Allies so it could be ruled by a malicious cabal that took over as a provisional government whose function to this day is to ensure endless reparation for a crime forensic science disproved decades ago!

The Bundesrepublik its acronym is BRD was meant to be a temporary measure, but you know what happens when unwelcome guests invade your house, rob you of your property title, dig in their heels and stay put. If they have the power that you no longer have, youre stuck with unwelcome intruders that write the rules for you!

The Bundesrepublik was never meant to last. It was put in its place because there was a vacuu m until such time as the ill-fated Germans, held to be pathologically addicted to authoritarian rule of grandiose design, were sufficiently matured politically to vote themselves a government more suitable to Allied tastes. This, sadly, never happened. From the Alliespoint of view, the occupation was a noble interim on paper. Until desirable maturity in the German populace had taken root, the powers-that-be would rule the besieged, bloodied, starving, decimated Germans for their own good in their own ruins, and re-educate them thoroughly for as long as it took until they came to their senses.

Zundel Lead Attorney Sylvia Stolz was bodily carried out of the courtroom for insisting that her client had the right to submit exculpatory evidence. Subsequently, Stolz was sentenced to more than three years in prison, two-thirds of which she served.

Ceasefire, yes but no peace treaty.

That ceasefire exists to this day. That means any minute new guns could start firingagain!

The pity is that the Germans were never told of this provisional arrangement that would have given them their freedom as soon as they showed proper remorse and paid enough restitution for crimes alleged to have happened. The facts of the matter were quietly swept under the rug.

Thus was created a bottomless pit. A thoroughly re-educated German can never show enough remorse. Not as long as there is still a nickel to be filched or a submarine to be delivered as a gesture of good will to the State of Israel.

Three post-war generations came and went. The usurpers of Germanys sovereignty stayed on because they liked their cozy nests. They made the Germans pay for their own occupation through an arrangement called Stationierungskosten paid out of the BRD treasury, defended by the Allies guilt cudgel called Offenkundigkeit. Nobody knew what to ask until Ernst Zundels Mannheim trial brought that red herring to the fore.

(Left_ Judge Meinerzhagen, who sentenced Ernst Zundel to five years in prison and who told him during sentencing: Even a bird will refuse to fly over your grave!

Time-tested Old-Testament hatred!

Today, most Germans fancy themselves to be benevolently ruled by a smug entity dressed up in democratic finery that still remains, in fact and law, a provisional administration kept carefully controlled. It still serves an alien agenda.

What alien agenda, you ask? The New World Order, waiting in the wings, thats what.

R v Zundel – Wikipedia

R v Zundel Hearing: December 10, 1991 Judgment: August 27, 1992 Full case name Ernst Zundel v Her Majesty The Queen Citations [1992] 2 S.C.R. 731 Docket No. 21811 Ruling Zundel appeal allowed Court Membership Chief Justice: Antonio Lamer Puisne Justices: Grard La Forest, Claire L’Heureux-Dub, John Sopinka, Charles Gonthier, Peter Cory, Beverley McLachlin, William Stevenson, Frank Iacobucci Reasons given Majority McLachlin J., joined by La Forest, L’Heureux-Dub and Sopinka JJ. Dissent Cory and Iacobucci JJ., joined by Gonthier J.

R v Zundel [1992] 2 S.C.R. 731 is a landmark Supreme Court of Canada decision where the Court struck down the provision in the Criminal Code that prohibited publication of false information or news on the basis that it violated the freedom of expression provision under section 2(b) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

In 1985, Holocaust denier Ernst Zndel was charged with “spreading false news” by publishing a pamphlet entitled “Did Six Million Really Die?” in Canada, contrary to s. 181 of the Criminal Code.

Section 181 states that “[e]very one who wilfully publishes a statement, tale or news that he knows is false and causes or is likely to cause injury or mischief to a public interest is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment”.

At trial, Zundel was convicted. However, on appeal the case was sent back for a new trial due to a procedural error at trial in admitting evidence and instructing the jury. He was re-tried in 1988, and convicted again. The judgement was upheld by the Court of Appeal, and Zundel appealed to the Supreme Court.

The issue before the Supreme Court was whether s. 181 of the Code infringed “the guarantee of freedom of expression in s. 2(b) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and, if so, whether s. 181 is justifiable under s. 1 of the Charter.”

Justice Beverley McLachlin, writing for the Court, found that Zundel did violate section 181. The book was examined, and the court concluded that it “misrepresented the work of historians, misquoted witnesses, fabricated evidence, and cited non-existent authorities.” However, section 181 violated section 2(b) of the Charter. Kelsey noted that section 2(b) protects all expression of a non-violent form, and as such, the content itself is irrelevant (section 2(b) is content neutral). The protection provided by the Charter includes expression of minority beliefs even where the majority may find it false (Morais 2001). The imposition of imprisonment for expression has a severely limiting effect on freedom, beyond reason.

McLachlin further found that it could not be justified under section 1 of the Charter as the restriction on all expressions “likely to cause injury or mischief to a public interest” was far too broad.

A second significant focal point of revisionist propaganda centered around Samizdat Publishers in Toronto. Well equipped with printing equipment, archives, and literature, Samizdat published and distributed revisionist literature glorifying Hitler and the Third Reich, and denying the Holocaust. Its staff worked every day beneath a portrait of the worst evildoer of all time, Adolph Hitler. They dispatched distorted versions of the truth about the Third Reich era around the world. As shown in the documentary film Profession: Neo-Nazi, their emissaries carried propaganda brochures about the Third Reich to many countries, including Germany, and also Poland.

The founder and guiding spirit was Ernst Zundel, a German who emigrated to Canada in 1958. He was convicted twice in Canadian courts, in 1985 and 1988, of publishing hate literature. After his extradition to Germany in 2005, a court in Mannheim sentenced him to 5 years imprisonment in 2007. His colleagues and supporters run the Zundelsite website, which propagates his ideas and expresses solidarity with him.

Ernst Zundel Lauded by Other Holocaust Deniers | Southern …

Jim and Joe Rizoli say that Brazilians have “raped” their hometown of Framingham, Mass., and turned it into a Third World “slave camp.” They vilify immigrant women as sluts and prostitutes, and have so aggressively confronted suspected undocumented workers that the U.S. Department of Justice held a public hearing to calm the situation in 2006. They defend the “free speech” rights of jailed neo-Nazi Ernst Zundel and, just last year, Jim Rizoli said that Jews support illegal immigration because “Russian Jews invaded this country years ago and took advantage of all the free services they could get, and they got plenty.”

But they are not, the Rizolis insist, Holocaust deniers. Nothing, say the conspiracy-obsessed twins who founded Concerned Friends of Illegal Immigration Law Enforcement in 2004, could be further from the truth.

There’s much to suggest otherwise. The Intelligence Report has uncovered a series of Web postings that certainly seem to come from the Rizoli brothers, and they are unambiguous in nature.

Archived Web pages from the early 2000s, before the Rizolis became public figures, contain a wealth of comments by persons using the same handles that the Rizolis still use today “jjrizo” for Jim, “JoRiz” for Joe and that also contain photos of each of the Rizolis. The comments include multiple claims that Jews were never murdered by poisonous gas during World War II, and that most of the atrocities of the Holocaust were grossly exaggerated or total hoaxes.

“Burning bodies was to kill the diseases that would be spread by the dead bodies that were dropping like flies from sickness and disease, not gassings,” read a Nov. 12, 2002 post attributed to Jim Rizoli.

The posts claimed that no more than 1.1 million Jews died during the war. That’s a small fraction of the death toll of 5 million to 6 million that is accepted by mainstream historians.

Echoing another common Holocaust revisionist theme, the posts also attributed those deaths solely to typhus and other diseases that spread in “labor camps,” not death camps.

“Hitler wasn’t stupid. He made sure he used the Jews and others for all the work they could perform in the factories,” read another post by “jjrizo,” this one dated Nov. 8, 2002. “I’m not saying there weren’t any concentration camps because there were, because you had people that were criminals and had to be dealt with.”

Denying Denial Contacted by the Report concerning the Holocaust postings, Jim Rizoli said he was the victim of virtual identity theft. “Let me set you straight. My identity was stolen. People were posting things using my name.” Asked his opinion of Holocaust denial, he said, “I have no interest in that. Nothing. I’m not going to get into that.”

Rizoli failed to explain why, if his online identity was indeed stolen, he and his brother continue to use the same cyberspace handles six years later. He also could not explain why anyone would seek to defame him or his brother, at a time when the two were not activists and were virtual unknowns in the community.

Since he has achieved fame, of sorts, Rizoli has been the victim of a string of online pranks. According to an April 25 story in Framingham’s Metro West Daily News, three fake craigslist ads featuring Jim Rizoli’s phone number appeared in the “Men Seeking Men” section in December 2007, one of which was titled, “Looking for my donkey show.” Another ad featured a photo of Jim Rizoli holding a microphone next to a photo of male genitalia alongside a ruler. Police investigators seized a computer owned by Framingham resident William Tulaba in connection with the fake ads. Tulaba is married to Ellie Tulaba, a U.S. citizen of Brazilian descent who’s frequently harassed by CCFIILE members. On July 31, William Tulaba pleaded not guilty to one count of criminal harassment in connection with the case.

But unlike the craigslist images, the photos of the Rizolis that appeared next to the Holocaust-denying posts appeared in online forums that the Rizoli brothers may well have had a special interest in. Most of the Holocaust denial material posted under the Rizolis’ monikers appeared on jehovahs-witness.com, a website forum for ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses.

By their own account, the Rizolis, who are 56, were Jehovah’s Witnesses from 1973 until they were both “disfellowshipped” in the 1990s for defying church authorities. Jehovah’s Witness officials told the Report that they never publicly discuss the removal of a church member.

A Kindred Spirit If the Rizolis indeed went from ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses to Holocaust deniers, their transition paralleled that of Ditlieb Felderer, a Swede who is arguably the world’s most bizarre Holocaust denier. In their postings, “JoRiz” and “jjrizo” described Felderer as their inspiration.

With his shoulder-length blond hair, oversized wire glasses and Day-Glo 1980s workout clothes, Felderer cuts an outlandish figure. He leads Holocaust revisionist tours in Poland. He wrote books and pamphlets claiming Anne Frank’s diary was a hoax and that concentration camps were merely “labor camps” for “Jewish criminals.” And he designed “satiric” flyers that encouraged readers to cut off hair or skin and send it to Holocaust museum directors under the label, “Pure Jewish Fat Scent: Hungarian Jews, Auschwitz gas chambers, 1940.”

Like the Rizolis , Felderer claims to have been disfellowshipped by the Jehovah’s Witnesses. “[Felderer] not only got the JW’s mad at him but as a result of trying to find truth in numbers got the Jews mad at him,” “JoRiz” wrote in a post dated Oct. 29, 2001. “You can’t win.”

Felderer became a Holocaust denier after he traveled to Germany in the 1970s to investigate how many Jehovah’s Witnesses were murdered in Nazi death camps. Felderer claimed he was there on official church business, which Witnesses officials have since denied. In any case, Felderer concluded that only 200 Jehovah’s Witnesses died in concentration camps, a lowball figure that laid the groundwork for his later forays into full-blown Holocaust denial. (Today, most historians estimate that between 2,500 and 5,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses died in Nazi concentration camps.)

By the 1980s, Felderer was publicly doubting the Holocaust took place at all and testifying in court that Jewish prisoners at Auschwitz enjoyed amenities such as swimming pools and concert halls.

One Good ‘Illegal Alien’ To back up their claims regarding the Holocaust, “JoRiz” and “jjrizo” linked to websites run by notorious Holocaust deniers David Irving and Ernst Zundel. They also linked to articles published by the Institute for Historical Review, a longtime Holocaust revisionist outfit based in California.

In 2004, the Rizolis, using their real names, both signed petitions in support of Zundel, publisher of tracts like The Hitler We Loved and Why, UFOs: Nazi Secret Weapon? and the infamous Did Six Million Really Die? Zundel, who at the time was facing imprisonment in Germany for promoting Holocaust denial, was an ironic choice of martyr for the Rizolis, who had just recently started raising a ruckus in Framingham about illegal immigration.

That’s because Zundel, a German citizen, had lived most of his life in Canada but fled to the United States when it looked like he would soon be sent back to Germany, where he had been convicted in absentia. But he overstayed his visa in the United States and was deported for immigration violations back to Canada, which soon ordered him sent to Germany. The Rizolis told a Massachusetts newspaper their support of Zundel was based purely on free speech issues.

Throughout their Holocaust denial postings, “JoRiz” and “jjrizo” maintained that their challenges to established history were neither anti-Semitic nor anything less than wholly factual.

“All those pictures of people thrown into pits looking like skeletons were most likely the ones who contracted typhus and died a horrible death. They also could be pictures of those who starved to death because the allies bombed all the supply lines coming into the main roads that supplied the camps,” wrote “jjrizo” in a post dated Nov. 19, 2002. “A lot of those people could of walked out of those camps if they didn’t die of typhus or starve.”

Forum members who disputed these claims were quickly branded as slanderers.

“I’m disgusted that you can twist something like the killing of innocent people to make it look like I condone it,” “jjrizo” wrote in the same post that described victims of Nazi murders as casualties of disease or the Allies. “You really have some issues in your life that you need some help with.”

Ernst Zundel – An Interim Report – rense.com

Today is another so-called “bail hearing” for Ernst Zundel – an exercise in futility that is costing us thousands of dollars, while the Canadian taxpayer picks up the tab for the Holocaust Lobby and CSIS – none being any the wiser. Nothing even faintly resembling justice can be expected from Judge Blais, a former solicitor general and, hence, boss of CSIS who is pimping for both the Lobby and CSIS in ways one can only describe as shameless beyond words. I often wonder what that kind of conduct by a judge, in olden days a community model seen as holding a position of respect and even reverence by the public, must do to the moral fabric of a country such as Canada. About yesterday’s demonstration in front of the prison, I have no further news beyond what I already sent you, but I am looking forward to the photos for our archives. We try with great care to document each step of this Marxist charade. Yesterday, our printer called me and assured me that the second printing of Ernst’s book will be available in two weeks. The first one is just about gone. People are ordering it in lots of 5, 10, 20, even 50 to give to their family members and friends. I think we finally found the public interest key that works to spread the word about what happened with Ernst’s arrest and detention. The first reviews are coming in – all of them positive to glowing! A few will soon be posted at www.zundelsite.org In “Setting the Record Straight,” Ernst tells of his treatment in Blount Country Prison, which shocked me when I first heard it, shocked me even more as, slowly, a fuller picture emerged in letters Ernst sent to others, not to me – and shocks me even now, 18 months later, as I keep hearing additional details of what really happened beyond Ernst’s initial description, conveyed to me in a somewhat toneless, dispassionate voice through a pane of glass that separated us – that what had happened was “the New World Order in action.” For instance, in a letter copy I received just yesterday, written from the Canadian Gulag to a young friend near Hollywood who supplies us with up-to-date post-9/11 videos, I found out that during what seems to have been a training session in terror, Ernst was dragged by his feet from his bunk bed and, face down, dragged outside. This was done to a 64-year-old man, known and respected world-wide for his restrained and peaceful public activism for Truth in History, who had been arrested without charge and without explanation! I am haunted by his more recent words that “you don’t know the half of it.” I guess I don’t – not yet! If you really want to know what happens to those daring to insist on Truth in History, for instance to French professor and premier Holocaust Revisionist, Dr. Robert Faurisson, go to http://www.zundelsite.org/english/debate/terror1.html That is one small example. In the letter to his young friend, Ernst describes not only his treatment today, almost six decades after the war, but the treatment of soldiers and civilians by Allied forces right after the defeat of Germany. Dear Bill: Just a short note to tell you that I got the photos of the demo, also the documents about Abu Ghraib. To me, of course, this is nothing new, since I published a book about Allied war crimes – including lots of American war crimes during and after World War II. My father was a German Wehrmacht medic who became a U.S. Prisoner of War and ended up in several of Eisenhower’s camps along the Rhine. These camps were described by James Bacque in two of his books on the subject, so I have known since January 1948 what Allied soldiers did. In those days there was no e-mail, no digital cameras to record, send, and download [those atrocity photos], but the same, and worse, crimes were committed against German civilians, not just soldiers, starting with the Soviets in the East and the French, British, Belgians, Dutch, and Americans in the West. What always disturbed me was that, in the beginning, the fighting troops were largely white – only later on did the occupation troops have lots of minorities. Take, for instance, the 134 SS troopers, tried for what has been called the Malmedy Massacre. All of them had their testicles [by white Allied forces] so smashed that none were able to reproduce after. We brought that out in our first trial through Dr. Faurisson’s testimony. [Other atrocities consisted of] drowning men in latrines by [holding their heads down] by GI’s, making others eat feces and vomit, or in the case of Julius Streicher, forcing his mouth open with a wooden club and having Negro guards spit into his open mouth – one of the “milder” treatments. Simpson van Rhoden, who investigated American interrogation tactics in Dachau, Schwbish Hall, and Nuremberg, as well as other places, wrote about hooding of prisoners, then a big outrage, driving match sticks under their fingernails and setting them on fire, OR U.S. GI’s posing as priests taking the “last rites and confessions” of tortured prisoners who were told they would be executed. All this was reported to Congress and published in the New York Times and Chicago Tribune at the time. I got copies of the microfilm for my trials – so this is nothing new! As to the filming of these tortures and rapes, Louis Marschalko, one of Hungary’s war time writers, wrote a book in 1953 called The World Conquerors. I met him in Munich ten years later. He told me about the French rounding up several thousand women in Stuttgart in the summer of 1945, imprisoning them in the underground passages of the Stuttgart railroad station, and letting French Colonial troops loose on them for an orgy of rapes – all of it being filmed and then shown, he said, at a New York City Jewish fundraiser! In the East, after they had tied women of all ages to the bed posts and gang-raped them, the Russians were fond of forcing copper tubes into their vaginas. Their sons, daughters, husbands [of these women] were forced to watch as rats, whose tails were burned with cigarette lighters, were shoved into those tubes, so that these women were torn apart [internally] by the frantic rodents! This was told to me in Montreal by a man a little older than myself, to whose mother it was done in his and his father’s presence in 1944-45. To make my story complete: On February 8th, 2003 [Ingrid’s comment: Ernst put a question mark here – I think it must have been the 10th or 11th,] 2003, when I was kept in Blount County Jail in Tennessee, I was dragged from my bunk and forced to the floor face down. My arms were twisted on my back and put in plastic handcuffs, [then I was] dragged by my feet from my cell to a common area where there were maybe 40 or 50 inmates lying on the floor, equally trussed. Two police dog handlers in black uniform and visored helmets held two wildly yapping German shepherds and a Doberman about two feet from my head. I could smell its foul breath. Saliva kept dripping on my sleeve and arm. The dog was hysterical, as was its handler, who had trouble holding it back. It kept rearing on his hind legs with its teeth clanking together. I saw young female police in skin-tight flak jackets and combat boots filming this disgusting scene, climbing over the prisoners lying curled up, some shaking like leaves, others sobbing, scared out of their wits! I was shocked by the ruthless, unfeeling behavior of those U.S. prison guards and those special dog handler types, who belonged to a special unit, it seems. We were no insurgents. Some were Mexican illegals, but 98 % were Americans, local people. There was no riot, no reason for this brutality. So it is the norm, Bill – it’s not an aberration. The treatment was nasty in every way. It was a disgrace for America! I, who always was very fond of America, had myself a reality check. Reality is very different from the propaganda we are fed. That, obviously, is the New American style of frightening people. Jefferson, Washington, and Madison would turn over in their graves as to what happened to their Early American dream! ____ Meanwhile, more and more people are finding their way to our cause who realize they have been lied to in so many ways, including who Ernst Zundel is and what he stands for. Many of them are young – the oldsters of the war time generation who have financed the Revisionist outreach up to now are slowly passing from this earth. The young ones are the ones who are going to rescue whatever is left to be rescued of the country once proudly called America. Here is one such letter from a young man who recently found us: Dear Zundels, Greetings from Ohio! I saw a post on Stormfront.org promoting your new book, and ordered it right away. It took only 2 days for me to read. I must say that I am ashamed of myself for not following this case more closely. I am aghast at Mr. Zundel’s treatment by the “modern” governments of our day and time. I am sorry that I can not contribute more financially. I am married with 2 children, making $7.00 per hour, and my wife and I are trying to get me through pre-med at Ohio State University. I had a bit of a “book fund” in my PayPal account that I’ve been hording, since funds are very limited, and I love books so very much. I can say proudly that the last book that I purchased with the money was, “Setting the Record Straight: Letters from Cell # 7”. Upon finishing the book I promptly donated what was left of my meager account to your (our!) cause. I feel so very helpless, but if there is anything that I can do, please do not hesitate to ask! About 3 pages into the book I started to meditate on, and pray for you both. I have not stopped. Please convey to Mr. Zundel that I also feel that music is a great way “communicate” to our people. I have recently (re)discovered classical music, and it does stir my DNA! I have so much more to say, so little time. Can we write to Mr. Zundel while he is deep in the gulag? Can we send him stamps, books, envelopes, et cetera? Again, if I can help in some way, let me know. You both are in my thoughts and prayers. Ernst Zundel is a precious Human Being.

Men banned from using Canada Post over controversial publication challenge minister’s order – CBC.ca

James Sears won’t be sending Easter cards this year for fear of facing a criminal charge. “I cannot even ask my wife to mail on my behalf because I am prohibited from having people mail on my behalf,” he told CBC News. Sears and another man are subject to a rare prohibitory order from the minister responsible for Canada Post, banning them from sending anything through the mail. Sears is editor and Laurence St. Germaine ispublisher of Toronto-based newspaper Your Ward News. For years, mail carriers have protested having to deliver it and many have complained about it being distributed in their neighbourhoods. The paper is filled with offensive imagery and writing aimed at just about every identifiable group, discredited theories on topics such as immunizations as well as personal attacks on high-profile Canadians. “We no longer wanted this racist, misogynistic, anti-Jewish, anti-Muslim, anti-gay hate rag in our neighbourhood,” said Lisa Kinsella, who represents a broad coalition of people opposed to the publication. Lisa Kinsella is one of the people behind a coalition to stop distribution of Your Ward News. (CBC) “It’s not free speech. I know that this is the argument, but hate propaganda is not free speech,” she said. Since making her feelings public, Kinsella and her husband, lawyer and consultant Warren Kinsella, have both become regular targets in the newspaper. The interim order was made more than nine months ago under Section 43 of the Canada Post Act. Sears and St. Germaine have yet to get a hearing. Public Services Minister JudyFoote’s office said the ministerappointed an independent board of review on Dec. 9, 2016. The members are three renowned people from legal and academic circles: Fareen Jamal, Elizabeth Forster and Peter John Loewen. Sears and St. Germaine have hired prominent defence lawyer Frank Addario to represent them. “There’s a lot of crap in the mail and itis not a crime in Canada to publish or distribute defiant or even odious ideas in writing. It is a crime to distribute hate propaganda or defamatory libel,” Addario said, adding his clients have never been charged with any hate-related offence. “Thestate has not put any corresponding obligation on itself to act swiftly after it takes away the citizen’s right to use the postal service for purposes of free expression.” Lawyer Frank Addario, who represents James Sears and Lawrence St. Germaine, says neither has been charged with a hate-related crime. (CBC) Addario intends to challenge the constitutionality of the minister’s powers. As it is unlikely the board could entertain a constitutional question, Addario said the next stop would be Federal Court. “Right now, the minister’s power is too broad, too discretionary for something so important as expressive freedom. So the minister’s power needs to be reined in, if she’s going to be running a monopoly that delivers expressive publications,” Addario said. But Kinsella applauds the minister for choosing to exercise her authority. “She saw the content, it was brought to her attention. She didn’t like what she saw and she decided the government would not be using a Crown asset to deliver it any more,” Kinsella said. Not surprisingly, Sears disagrees. James Sears and Lawrence St. Germaine have been prohibited from using Canada Post over complaints about their publication Your Ward News. “The Liberal government did it because the Liberal government doesn’t like what we say. And maybe in future a far right-wing government won’t like what left-wing people say,” he warned. The minister responsible for Canada Post has only twice before issued a prohibitionary order and only one of them was aimed at preventing the spread of hate speech. In 1981, the then-minister issued an interim order against Samsidat Publishers, which was owned by convicted Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel. In that case, the order lasted just a few months before it was overturned by the board of review.

Students denounce posters questioning Holocaust at University of Calgary – CBC.ca

Some students at the University of Calgary are speaking out after posters questioning whether six million Jews were really killed in the Holocaust were put up around the campus. The dozen or so posters were taken down immediately last week. Jordan Waldman, head of Hillel Calgary, a students’ group affiliated with the Calgary Jewish Federation, says the messages were blatantly anti-Semitic. “The six million who died in the Holocaust, that is a number that’s been proven. It’s not up for academic debate,” he said. “So this question in itself, it’s a poster promoting Holocaust denial.” It’s the second troubling incident of its kind so far this academic year, said Students’ Union president Stephen Guscott. Last fall, dozens of anti-Muslim posters showed up on campus. Students Union president Stephen Guscott says it’s disappointing to see such shocking messages posted on campus. (Jennifer Lee/CBC) “I think it’s really disappointing and shocking that inflammatory posters like this were put up around campus,” he said. “I think it’s really important for our campus to have a focus on diversity and inclusivity, and I think posters like this stand in the way of that.” According to B’Nai Brith Canada, the”Committee for Open Debate on the Holocaust” (CODOH) has taken credit for putting up the posters. “Prominent CODOH figuresinclude German-Canadian Holocaust deniers Alfred and Monika Schaefer, and suspended University of Lethbridge professor Anthony Hall,” B’Nai Brithsaid in a press release. U of C student Nolan Hill, who sawone of the posters taped to a door at MacEwan Hall, the main student centre, later looked up some of thenames and organizations mentioned on it. “They were all coming up as very prominent Holocaust deniers,” he said. Among the names listed on one of the posters was infamous neo-Nazi Ernst Zundel, who was convicted in Canada for “spreading false news” before the Supreme Court overturned the conviction, saying that the charge violated his Charter right to freedom of expression. Zundel was then deported to his native Germany, where he served five years for inciting racial hatred. “So it’s just really concerning that someone would think to put those up here, because I think we are quite a welcoming and diverse campus,” Hill said. In a written statement, the university says it is committed to open debate and a diversity of opinion while sustaining an inclusive and respectful environment. About a dozen posters, like this one, questioning whether six million Jews were killed in the Holocaust, were put up on doors and walls around the U of C recently. (The Gauntlet)

B.C. court rejects appeal of man who said Jews should be sterilized – Canadian Jewish News (blog)

The British Columbia Supreme Court has rejected the appeal of a Quesnel, B.C., man convicted of promoting hatred against Jewish people in November 2015. On his website, RadicalPress.com, Arthur Topham wrote that Jews should be forcibly sterilized. He described Canada as being controlled by the Zionist lobby and said Jewish synagogues are synagogues of Satan. Harry Abrams, who was the representative for the Bnai Brith Canadas League for Human Rights in 2007, when he was the first to raise the alarm about Tophams anti-Semitic writing, said hed like to see Topham receive the maximum sentence of two years. READ: RABIDLY ANTI-SEMITIC B.C. MAN CONVICTED OF HATE CRIME He was convicted in 2015 by a jury of his peers, and hes dragged it out, kept everything up on his website since then and added to it over all this time, said Abrams, who now serves as chair of community relations for the Jewish Federation of Victoria and Vancouver Island. Its all been hateful, deliberate and with the intention of causing maximum pain and fear to Jews. Hes a sick guy and there has to be some kind of backstop on this. The Feb. 20 ruling by the B.C. Supreme Court is an important one, said Aidan Fishman, who worked closely with Amanda Hohmann, national director of Bnai Briths League for Human Rights, on this case. The argument by Tophams lawyer, Barclay W. Johnson, that the law that criminalizes hate speech in Canada is unconstitutional, had no merit in my opinion, he said. Basically they were arguing that the presence of the Internet, and the fact that information is more widely available because of it, changes whether that material is constitutional or not. The judge firmly rejected that argument. He wrote in his decision that it actually makes the offence even more serious, by virtue of the fact that its much easier to disseminate hate today, Fishman added. This also means that when faced with incidents of hate, especially online, police and prosecutors should press charges because theres no evidence those charges wont succeed, so theres no excuse for not enforcing them. Abrams speculated Topham might try to appeal this conviction to the B.C. Court of Appeal. Johnson said he had not received any instructions from his client about an appeal. He noted that he shared office space with Tophams former lawyer, Doug Christie, who died in March 2013 after a long career in which he gained notoriety for defending Holocaust deniers such as Ernst Zundel and James Keegstra. On his deathbed, I told [Christie] Id look after the rest of his files, and this was one of them, Johnson said. My interest was piqued by going over the issues related to freedom of expression. Ninety-nine percent of the material Arthur Topham posted from other sources is available on the Internet, so the question is, what do you do about all this wickedness? I dont think you use the Criminal Code, he said. We argued that the protections afforded in Canada are of little assistance if you weigh them against whats available worldwide. Johnson said Topham does not have a criminal record, and hes hopeful he would not serve time in jail. But Abrams begged to differ. I really think he should spend a couple of years in jail. Hes sadistic and racist, and hes worked really hard for it. Johnson said Tophams sentencing is scheduled for March 10.

Hans Schmidt (Waffen-SS) – Wikipedia

Hans Schmidt Born (1927-04-24)April 24, 1927 Vlklingen, Germany Died May 30, 2010(2010-05-30) (aged83) Nationality naturalized American Occupation businessman, political activist Knownfor veteran of the Waffen-SS founder of the German-American National Political Action Committee (GANPAC) Hans Schmidt (24 April 1927 30 May 2010) was a German-born naturalized American citizen, member of the Waffen-SS during World War II, and founder of the German-American National Political Action Committee (GANPAC). He was primarily known for his promotion of White separatism, National Socialism, antisemitism, and Holocaust denial. Schmidt was arrested in Germany on hate charges in 1995, but avoided standing trial by returning to the USA while released on bail.[1] Schmidt was born on 24 April 1927, in Vlklingen. During Nazi rule, he was a member of the Hitler Youth, and, by his own account, joined the Waffen-SS in 1943 at the age of 16,[2] and served as a corporal in the SS Division Leibstandarte. Schmidt and was wounded twice during campaigns in Hungary, Austria, and the Battle of the Bulge.[3][unreliable source?] He left Germany in 1947, arrived in the United States in 1949, and became a naturalized citizen in 1955 in Chicago.[4] In 1983, Schmidt founded the German-American National Political Action Committee (GANPAC), which published the GANPAC Brief in English and the USA-Bericht ([U.S.A. Report]) in German. GANPAC was characterized as “pretending to represent the 52 million Americans of German descent” by the German magazine Der Spiegel,[5] as “openly anti-Semitic” by the New York Times,[6] and as “virulently anti-Semitic” by the Anti-Defamation League.[7] GANPAC was also accused of promoting Holocaust denial.[8] Between 1983 and 1985, GANPAC raised about $55,000 in contributions,[9] but, unlike other political action committees, did not make any financial contributions until the late 1980s, when it began donating money to the election campaigns of conservative Republican candidates. When U.S. Senator Steve Symms gave a $1,000 contribution from GANPAC to the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith and the Idaho Holocaust Council, Schmidt complained to the Federal Election Commission.[6] GANPAC also made a contribution to Democrat Bob Edgar who was running against Jewish Republican candidate Arlen Specter.[10] The Santa Monica offices of GANPAC were fire-bombed in 1985, causing $50,000 in damage. Schmidt claimed the Jewish Defense League carried out the attack, a claim the JDL rejected.[11] The GANPAC Brief was published out of Washington, D.C. (1983-1989), Santa Monica, California (1990-1993), Burke, Virginia (JanuaryMarch 1994), and Pensacola, Florida (April 1994-July 2004).[12] Schmidt also founded the German-American Information and Education Association (GIEA), which is presided over by E. Stanley Rittenhouse, a known anti-Semite,[1] who “served as chief legislative representative for the Liberty Lobby,[13] a far right organization founded by Willis Carto, whom the Anti-Defamation League calls “perhaps the most influential professional anti-Semite in the United States”.[14] In one of his last speeches, William Luther Pierce briefly discussed a longtime friendship with Hans Schmidt.[15] On 9 August 1995[16] Schmidt was arrested at the Frankfurt airport by German authorities after copies of his newsletter, USA-Bericht, were discovered. He was charged with “incitement to hate” (Volksverhetzung in German) as a result of a letter he had sent to a German state legislator in Schwerin.[4] Schmidt came to regard the German government as treasonous and controlled by “Oberjuden” (“top Jews”),[8] and claimed the U.S. embassy provided false information to Germany to persecute him.[17] The ADL applauded his arrest.[18] Due to poor health, he was released on bail in January 1996. He fled Germany and returned to the USA to avoid further persecution.[17] He wrote a book about this experience, titled Jailed in Democratic Germany (1997). Schmidt spent his later years trying to challenge Jewish influence, first by calling for a repeal of the non-existent “Kosher tax” (specifically addressing the Adolph Coors Brewing Co.),[19] and later by writing a book entitled End Times/End Games (1999) where he lamented at length the problems Jews had caused for Nazis like himself and begged them to voluntarily leave any Western nations they lived in. He was left dispirited by the complete dismissal of his demands[citation needed] and largely vanished from any role in neo-Nazi circles after Ernst Zundel was deported to Germany.[citation needed] Schmidt died in 2010; he had no known survivors.[citation needed]

Germany: Since 1945 a Vassal State to Israel | Veterans Today

By Dr. Ingrid R. Zundel on July 24, 2016 An 87-year-old lady of high intelligence and spotless reputation, Frau Ursula Haverbeck of Vlotho, Germany, has recently been sentenced to 10 months in prison for speaking out against incessant German-bashing. What did she say? Demanding proof about alleged atrocities in Auschwitz, as so repeatedly and vociferously claimed. She saysno such proof can be found. Sheer heresy! Specifically, Ms. Haverbeck insists that Auschwitz was a work camp, not a death camp. Thats good news isnt it? She agreed that there were casualties as there will be in any war but no deaths due to gassings. There never was a Fhrer plan to kill the Jews of Europe in government-sponsored, industrial-type fashion. She said all this, and more,on an hour-long national television show called Panorama, similar to Americas Sixty Minutes. Frau Haverbeck (right) is certainly no skinhead. She comes across as poised, articulate, and very well-informed. For her heretical assertions, she is expected to be incarcerated for almost an entire year. For her principled stand on behalf of historical truth, she earned herself the leftist slur Nazi-Oma, repeated with palpable relish on just about every European network and print syndication. Off with her head! As Ian Greenlaugh, a VT colleague of mine, noted this morning: What sort of nation throws 87-year-old women into jail for speaking the truth? Certainly not one that can consider itself to be a functioning free and fair democracy. A free and fair democracy? Well, thats exactly what Germany is not . Were talking faux democracy. The Bundesrepublik, as a truncated post-war Germany has been rechristened, is still a vassal state, a fossil of a war lost by the German military more than seven decades ago, as we are never allowed to forget. Heres whats not widely understood. Germany is an Allied -occupied colony and has been for more than 70+ years, despite a threadbare democratic faade. A conquerors ceasefire was declared in 1945 when the military arm of the Third Reich surrendered. A pro forma ceasefire came into effecton the 8th of May 1945 as part of the military alliance called NATO. But there was never a peace treaty. Ever. A genuine peace treaty was never allowed to be born. It is my firm contention that World War II didnt end. In Germany, there is a bitter saying that the Bundesrepublik has been installed to keep the Americans in, the Russians out, and the Germans down. That folkish wisdom fits the situation. In 1998 inan interview taped five years before Ernst Zundel was politically kidnapped in broad daylight on American soil, he explained to an Israeli reporter exactly what this means: Germanys political enemies currently in charge of that chunk of real estate, called Germany in the vernacular, have succeeded in inducing guilt complexes into an entire unsuspecting population leading to the classic symptoms of the massive national psychosis that we can see today. A jokester once observed that there are more televisions in Germany than there are bathtubs, which means that brains gets scrubbed more often and more thoroughly than backsides. After seventy+years after the Third Reich surrendered, Germany is still an occupied country, a fact kept from the German people, re-educated to the hilt. Your average German has not the faintest clue. Induced insanity, as Dr. Rigolf Hennig, a noted German psychiatrist, has stated, has little to do with intelligence but a great deal to do with suspension of logical thought brought about by pseudo-religious indoctrination. Let me try to explain that to you. As the Catholic Church relies on Infallibility, politically beholden judges in the German courts rely on Manifest Obviousness or Offenkundigkeit roughly akin to the Anglo-Saxon concept of Judicial Notice meaning what exists need not be proven. Tuesday follows Monday. The sun sets in the West. The moon shines brightat night. Moscowis the capital of Russia. Guilt on the German character is fixed for all eternity. They gassed six million Jews. Disbarred attorney Horst Mahler, who was sentenced to more than 10 years for his politically incorrect statements What do you call a country in the very heart of Europe that does not have its own elected government? A USA protectorate? An Israeli colony? A trial run for the New World Order? Twistspeak in the Orwellian mode? Here is the seamy tale. Legally, the Bundesrepublik is not the legitimate successor to the Reich. Even Germanys own highest Constitutional Court affirmed it. It cannot be the legitimate successor because, under international law, the Reich is still the legitimate state and two states cannot legally govern the same geographic area at the same time. Just as Russia didnt disappear after the Soviet regime collapsed, the German Reich continues to exist, regardless of politically motivated claims to the contrary. Offenkundigkeit exists to enforce political dogma and punish heresy. It means that if you are unlucky enough to end up with a legitimate question for instance, Did Six Million Really Die? before a judge who toes the expected political line, the fix is in for you before the trial even begins. A defense on the merits of your case is strictly precluded by law. You are not allowed to argue what you suspect to be true, or what you know to be true, or what you can prove to be true. Offenkundigkeit stands in the courtroom like the golem that it is and you better stand at attention! You are forbidden by law to bolster your assertion or even your opinion with evidence such as forensicfacts and if an attorney is foolish enough to insist, he or she is guilty of the same crime as his or her defendant guilty by mere association and intent. Think of it this way: A man of impeccable repute is falsely accused of being a thief. Since most defendants are unschooled on details of the law, he may assume that he must prove his innocence. Not so! According to law and convention, the state must prove he stole. He claims he didnt steal. He argues theres no evidence he stole. He gets himself a lawyer. The lawyer argues that the accusation cant be true where is the evidence? The judge replies: Its obvious. Offenkundig. Are you a thief yourself? Shut up or else, Ill sentence you for stealing. Offenkundigkeit has, thus, become the Holy Cow of German jurisprudence regarding so-called war crimes and, lately, hate speech crimes. It gives beholden judges court jester license. How can a defense attorney then offer a solid rebuttal, if the law not only forbids it but endangers the attorney himself? The short answer is that he cant. The long answer is written on the wind. Ernst Zundel (left) with his long-term German attorney, Jrgen Rieger, who died mysteriosly after his clients trial of a sudden heart attack The German war crimes trials and now their modern version, hate crimes trials, are a farce. They are the bull horns of a military occupation that likes to dress itself in democratic finery but is, in fact, an autocratic instrument enforcing a false history. The simple truthis that the German Reich was not obliterated when the German Wehrmacht surrendered. It was kept feeble on purpose by the victorious Allies so it could be ruled by a malicious cabal that took over as a provisional government whose function to this day is to ensure endless reparation for a crime forensic science disproved decades ago! The Bundesrepublik its acronym is BRD was meant to be a temporary measure, but you know what happens when unwelcome guests invade your house, rob you of your property title, dig in their heels and stay put. If they have the power that you no longer have, youre stuck with unwelcome intruders that write the rules for you! The Bundesrepublik was never meant to last. It was put in its place because there was a vacuu m until such time as the ill-fated Germans, held to be pathologically addicted to authoritarian rule of grandiose design, were sufficiently matured politically to vote themselves a government more suitable to Allied tastes. This, sadly, never happened. From the Alliespoint of view, the occupation was a noble interim on paper. Until desirable maturity in the German populace had taken root, the powers-that-be would rule the besieged, bloodied, starving, decimated Germans for their own good in their own ruins, and re-educate them thoroughly for as long as it took until they came to their senses. Zundel Lead Attorney Sylvia Stolz was bodily carried out of the courtroom for insisting that her client had the right to submit exculpatory evidence. Subsequently, Stolz was sentenced to more than three years in prison, two-thirds of which she served. Ceasefire, yes but no peace treaty. That ceasefire exists to this day. That means any minute new guns could start firingagain! The pity is that the Germans were never told of this provisional arrangement that would have given them their freedom as soon as they showed proper remorse and paid enough restitution for crimes alleged to have happened. The facts of the matter were quietly swept under the rug. Thus was created a bottomless pit. A thoroughly re-educated German can never show enough remorse. Not as long as there is still a nickel to be filched or a submarine to be delivered as a gesture of good will to the State of Israel. Three post-war generations came and went. The usurpers of Germanys sovereignty stayed on because they liked their cozy nests. They made the Germans pay for their own occupation through an arrangement called Stationierungskosten paid out of the BRD treasury, defended by the Allies guilt cudgel called Offenkundigkeit. Nobody knew what to ask until Ernst Zundels Mannheim trial brought that red herring to the fore. (Left_ Judge Meinerzhagen, who sentenced Ernst Zundel to five years in prison and who told him during sentencing: Even a bird will refuse to fly over your grave! Time-tested Old-Testament hatred! Today, most Germans fancy themselves to be benevolently ruled by a smug entity dressed up in democratic finery that still remains, in fact and law, a provisional administration kept carefully controlled. It still serves an alien agenda. What alien agenda, you ask? The New World Order, waiting in the wings, thats what. Zundel supporters demonstrate in front of the German Embassy in Washington, D.C.

R v Zundel – Wikipedia

R v Zundel Hearing: December 10, 1991 Judgment: August 27, 1992 Full case name Ernst Zundel v Her Majesty The Queen Citations [1992] 2 S.C.R. 731 Docket No. 21811 Ruling Zundel appeal allowed Court Membership Chief Justice: Antonio Lamer Puisne Justices: Grard La Forest, Claire L’Heureux-Dub, John Sopinka, Charles Gonthier, Peter Cory, Beverley McLachlin, William Stevenson, Frank Iacobucci Reasons given Majority McLachlin J., joined by La Forest, L’Heureux-Dub and Sopinka JJ. Dissent Cory and Iacobucci JJ., joined by Gonthier J. R v Zundel [1992] 2 S.C.R. 731 is a landmark Supreme Court of Canada decision where the Court struck down the provision in the Criminal Code that prohibited publication of false information or news on the basis that it violated the freedom of expression provision under section 2(b) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. In 1985, Holocaust denier Ernst Zndel was charged with “spreading false news” by publishing a pamphlet entitled “Did Six Million Really Die?” in Canada, contrary to s. 181 of the Criminal Code. Section 181 states that “[e]very one who wilfully publishes a statement, tale or news that he knows is false and causes or is likely to cause injury or mischief to a public interest is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment”. At trial, Zundel was convicted. However, on appeal the case was sent back for a new trial due to a procedural error at trial in admitting evidence and instructing the jury. He was re-tried in 1988, and convicted again. The judgement was upheld by the Court of Appeal, and Zundel appealed to the Supreme Court. The issue before the Supreme Court was whether s. 181 of the Code infringed “the guarantee of freedom of expression in s. 2(b) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and, if so, whether s. 181 is justifiable under s. 1 of the Charter.” Justice Beverley McLachlin, writing for the Court, found that Zundel did violate section 181. The book was examined, and the court concluded that it “misrepresented the work of historians, misquoted witnesses, fabricated evidence, and cited non-existent authorities.” However, section 181 violated section 2(b) of the Charter. Kelsey noted that section 2(b) protects all expression of a non-violent form, and as such, the content itself is irrelevant (section 2(b) is content neutral). The protection provided by the Charter includes expression of minority beliefs even where the majority may find it false (Morais 2001). The imposition of imprisonment for expression has a severely limiting effect on freedom, beyond reason. McLachlin further found that it could not be justified under section 1 of the Charter as the restriction on all expressions “likely to cause injury or mischief to a public interest” was far too broad.

A second significant focal point of revisionist propaganda centered around Samizdat Publishers in Toronto. Well equipped with printing equipment, archives, and literature, Samizdat published and distributed revisionist literature glorifying Hitler and the Third Reich, and denying the Holocaust. Its staff worked every day beneath a portrait of the worst evildoer of all time, Adolph Hitler. They dispatched distorted versions of the truth about the Third Reich era around the world. As shown in the documentary film Profession: Neo-Nazi, their emissaries carried propaganda brochures about the Third Reich to many countries, including Germany, and also Poland. The founder and guiding spirit was Ernst Zundel, a German who emigrated to Canada in 1958. He was convicted twice in Canadian courts, in 1985 and 1988, of publishing hate literature. After his extradition to Germany in 2005, a court in Mannheim sentenced him to 5 years imprisonment in 2007. His colleagues and supporters run the Zundelsite website, which propagates his ideas and expresses solidarity with him.

Ernst Zundel Lauded by Other Holocaust Deniers | Southern …

Jim and Joe Rizoli say that Brazilians have “raped” their hometown of Framingham, Mass., and turned it into a Third World “slave camp.” They vilify immigrant women as sluts and prostitutes, and have so aggressively confronted suspected undocumented workers that the U.S. Department of Justice held a public hearing to calm the situation in 2006. They defend the “free speech” rights of jailed neo-Nazi Ernst Zundel and, just last year, Jim Rizoli said that Jews support illegal immigration because “Russian Jews invaded this country years ago and took advantage of all the free services they could get, and they got plenty.” But they are not, the Rizolis insist, Holocaust deniers. Nothing, say the conspiracy-obsessed twins who founded Concerned Friends of Illegal Immigration Law Enforcement in 2004, could be further from the truth. There’s much to suggest otherwise. The Intelligence Report has uncovered a series of Web postings that certainly seem to come from the Rizoli brothers, and they are unambiguous in nature. Archived Web pages from the early 2000s, before the Rizolis became public figures, contain a wealth of comments by persons using the same handles that the Rizolis still use today “jjrizo” for Jim, “JoRiz” for Joe and that also contain photos of each of the Rizolis. The comments include multiple claims that Jews were never murdered by poisonous gas during World War II, and that most of the atrocities of the Holocaust were grossly exaggerated or total hoaxes. “Burning bodies was to kill the diseases that would be spread by the dead bodies that were dropping like flies from sickness and disease, not gassings,” read a Nov. 12, 2002 post attributed to Jim Rizoli. The posts claimed that no more than 1.1 million Jews died during the war. That’s a small fraction of the death toll of 5 million to 6 million that is accepted by mainstream historians. Echoing another common Holocaust revisionist theme, the posts also attributed those deaths solely to typhus and other diseases that spread in “labor camps,” not death camps. “Hitler wasn’t stupid. He made sure he used the Jews and others for all the work they could perform in the factories,” read another post by “jjrizo,” this one dated Nov. 8, 2002. “I’m not saying there weren’t any concentration camps because there were, because you had people that were criminals and had to be dealt with.” Denying Denial Contacted by the Report concerning the Holocaust postings, Jim Rizoli said he was the victim of virtual identity theft. “Let me set you straight. My identity was stolen. People were posting things using my name.” Asked his opinion of Holocaust denial, he said, “I have no interest in that. Nothing. I’m not going to get into that.” Rizoli failed to explain why, if his online identity was indeed stolen, he and his brother continue to use the same cyberspace handles six years later. He also could not explain why anyone would seek to defame him or his brother, at a time when the two were not activists and were virtual unknowns in the community. Since he has achieved fame, of sorts, Rizoli has been the victim of a string of online pranks. According to an April 25 story in Framingham’s Metro West Daily News, three fake craigslist ads featuring Jim Rizoli’s phone number appeared in the “Men Seeking Men” section in December 2007, one of which was titled, “Looking for my donkey show.” Another ad featured a photo of Jim Rizoli holding a microphone next to a photo of male genitalia alongside a ruler. Police investigators seized a computer owned by Framingham resident William Tulaba in connection with the fake ads. Tulaba is married to Ellie Tulaba, a U.S. citizen of Brazilian descent who’s frequently harassed by CCFIILE members. On July 31, William Tulaba pleaded not guilty to one count of criminal harassment in connection with the case. But unlike the craigslist images, the photos of the Rizolis that appeared next to the Holocaust-denying posts appeared in online forums that the Rizoli brothers may well have had a special interest in. Most of the Holocaust denial material posted under the Rizolis’ monikers appeared on jehovahs-witness.com, a website forum for ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses. By their own account, the Rizolis, who are 56, were Jehovah’s Witnesses from 1973 until they were both “disfellowshipped” in the 1990s for defying church authorities. Jehovah’s Witness officials told the Report that they never publicly discuss the removal of a church member. A Kindred Spirit If the Rizolis indeed went from ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses to Holocaust deniers, their transition paralleled that of Ditlieb Felderer, a Swede who is arguably the world’s most bizarre Holocaust denier. In their postings, “JoRiz” and “jjrizo” described Felderer as their inspiration. With his shoulder-length blond hair, oversized wire glasses and Day-Glo 1980s workout clothes, Felderer cuts an outlandish figure. He leads Holocaust revisionist tours in Poland. He wrote books and pamphlets claiming Anne Frank’s diary was a hoax and that concentration camps were merely “labor camps” for “Jewish criminals.” And he designed “satiric” flyers that encouraged readers to cut off hair or skin and send it to Holocaust museum directors under the label, “Pure Jewish Fat Scent: Hungarian Jews, Auschwitz gas chambers, 1940.” Like the Rizolis , Felderer claims to have been disfellowshipped by the Jehovah’s Witnesses. “[Felderer] not only got the JW’s mad at him but as a result of trying to find truth in numbers got the Jews mad at him,” “JoRiz” wrote in a post dated Oct. 29, 2001. “You can’t win.” Felderer became a Holocaust denier after he traveled to Germany in the 1970s to investigate how many Jehovah’s Witnesses were murdered in Nazi death camps. Felderer claimed he was there on official church business, which Witnesses officials have since denied. In any case, Felderer concluded that only 200 Jehovah’s Witnesses died in concentration camps, a lowball figure that laid the groundwork for his later forays into full-blown Holocaust denial. (Today, most historians estimate that between 2,500 and 5,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses died in Nazi concentration camps.) By the 1980s, Felderer was publicly doubting the Holocaust took place at all and testifying in court that Jewish prisoners at Auschwitz enjoyed amenities such as swimming pools and concert halls. One Good ‘Illegal Alien’ To back up their claims regarding the Holocaust, “JoRiz” and “jjrizo” linked to websites run by notorious Holocaust deniers David Irving and Ernst Zundel. They also linked to articles published by the Institute for Historical Review, a longtime Holocaust revisionist outfit based in California. In 2004, the Rizolis, using their real names, both signed petitions in support of Zundel, publisher of tracts like The Hitler We Loved and Why, UFOs: Nazi Secret Weapon? and the infamous Did Six Million Really Die? Zundel, who at the time was facing imprisonment in Germany for promoting Holocaust denial, was an ironic choice of martyr for the Rizolis, who had just recently started raising a ruckus in Framingham about illegal immigration. That’s because Zundel, a German citizen, had lived most of his life in Canada but fled to the United States when it looked like he would soon be sent back to Germany, where he had been convicted in absentia. But he overstayed his visa in the United States and was deported for immigration violations back to Canada, which soon ordered him sent to Germany. The Rizolis told a Massachusetts newspaper their support of Zundel was based purely on free speech issues. Throughout their Holocaust denial postings, “JoRiz” and “jjrizo” maintained that their challenges to established history were neither anti-Semitic nor anything less than wholly factual. “All those pictures of people thrown into pits looking like skeletons were most likely the ones who contracted typhus and died a horrible death. They also could be pictures of those who starved to death because the allies bombed all the supply lines coming into the main roads that supplied the camps,” wrote “jjrizo” in a post dated Nov. 19, 2002. “A lot of those people could of walked out of those camps if they didn’t die of typhus or starve.” Forum members who disputed these claims were quickly branded as slanderers. “I’m disgusted that you can twist something like the killing of innocent people to make it look like I condone it,” “jjrizo” wrote in the same post that described victims of Nazi murders as casualties of disease or the Allies. “You really have some issues in your life that you need some help with.”

Ernst Zundel – An Interim Report – rense.com

Today is another so-called “bail hearing” for Ernst Zundel – an exercise in futility that is costing us thousands of dollars, while the Canadian taxpayer picks up the tab for the Holocaust Lobby and CSIS – none being any the wiser. Nothing even faintly resembling justice can be expected from Judge Blais, a former solicitor general and, hence, boss of CSIS who is pimping for both the Lobby and CSIS in ways one can only describe as shameless beyond words. I often wonder what that kind of conduct by a judge, in olden days a community model seen as holding a position of respect and even reverence by the public, must do to the moral fabric of a country such as Canada. About yesterday’s demonstration in front of the prison, I have no further news beyond what I already sent you, but I am looking forward to the photos for our archives. We try with great care to document each step of this Marxist charade. Yesterday, our printer called me and assured me that the second printing of Ernst’s book will be available in two weeks. The first one is just about gone. People are ordering it in lots of 5, 10, 20, even 50 to give to their family members and friends. I think we finally found the public interest key that works to spread the word about what happened with Ernst’s arrest and detention. The first reviews are coming in – all of them positive to glowing! A few will soon be posted at www.zundelsite.org In “Setting the Record Straight,” Ernst tells of his treatment in Blount Country Prison, which shocked me when I first heard it, shocked me even more as, slowly, a fuller picture emerged in letters Ernst sent to others, not to me – and shocks me even now, 18 months later, as I keep hearing additional details of what really happened beyond Ernst’s initial description, conveyed to me in a somewhat toneless, dispassionate voice through a pane of glass that separated us – that what had happened was “the New World Order in action.” For instance, in a letter copy I received just yesterday, written from the Canadian Gulag to a young friend near Hollywood who supplies us with up-to-date post-9/11 videos, I found out that during what seems to have been a training session in terror, Ernst was dragged by his feet from his bunk bed and, face down, dragged outside. This was done to a 64-year-old man, known and respected world-wide for his restrained and peaceful public activism for Truth in History, who had been arrested without charge and without explanation! I am haunted by his more recent words that “you don’t know the half of it.” I guess I don’t – not yet! If you really want to know what happens to those daring to insist on Truth in History, for instance to French professor and premier Holocaust Revisionist, Dr. Robert Faurisson, go to http://www.zundelsite.org/english/debate/terror1.html That is one small example. In the letter to his young friend, Ernst describes not only his treatment today, almost six decades after the war, but the treatment of soldiers and civilians by Allied forces right after the defeat of Germany. Dear Bill: Just a short note to tell you that I got the photos of the demo, also the documents about Abu Ghraib. To me, of course, this is nothing new, since I published a book about Allied war crimes – including lots of American war crimes during and after World War II. My father was a German Wehrmacht medic who became a U.S. Prisoner of War and ended up in several of Eisenhower’s camps along the Rhine. These camps were described by James Bacque in two of his books on the subject, so I have known since January 1948 what Allied soldiers did. In those days there was no e-mail, no digital cameras to record, send, and download [those atrocity photos], but the same, and worse, crimes were committed against German civilians, not just soldiers, starting with the Soviets in the East and the French, British, Belgians, Dutch, and Americans in the West. What always disturbed me was that, in the beginning, the fighting troops were largely white – only later on did the occupation troops have lots of minorities. Take, for instance, the 134 SS troopers, tried for what has been called the Malmedy Massacre. All of them had their testicles [by white Allied forces] so smashed that none were able to reproduce after. We brought that out in our first trial through Dr. Faurisson’s testimony. [Other atrocities consisted of] drowning men in latrines by [holding their heads down] by GI’s, making others eat feces and vomit, or in the case of Julius Streicher, forcing his mouth open with a wooden club and having Negro guards spit into his open mouth – one of the “milder” treatments. Simpson van Rhoden, who investigated American interrogation tactics in Dachau, Schwbish Hall, and Nuremberg, as well as other places, wrote about hooding of prisoners, then a big outrage, driving match sticks under their fingernails and setting them on fire, OR U.S. GI’s posing as priests taking the “last rites and confessions” of tortured prisoners who were told they would be executed. All this was reported to Congress and published in the New York Times and Chicago Tribune at the time. I got copies of the microfilm for my trials – so this is nothing new! As to the filming of these tortures and rapes, Louis Marschalko, one of Hungary’s war time writers, wrote a book in 1953 called The World Conquerors. I met him in Munich ten years later. He told me about the French rounding up several thousand women in Stuttgart in the summer of 1945, imprisoning them in the underground passages of the Stuttgart railroad station, and letting French Colonial troops loose on them for an orgy of rapes – all of it being filmed and then shown, he said, at a New York City Jewish fundraiser! In the East, after they had tied women of all ages to the bed posts and gang-raped them, the Russians were fond of forcing copper tubes into their vaginas. Their sons, daughters, husbands [of these women] were forced to watch as rats, whose tails were burned with cigarette lighters, were shoved into those tubes, so that these women were torn apart [internally] by the frantic rodents! This was told to me in Montreal by a man a little older than myself, to whose mother it was done in his and his father’s presence in 1944-45. To make my story complete: On February 8th, 2003 [Ingrid’s comment: Ernst put a question mark here – I think it must have been the 10th or 11th,] 2003, when I was kept in Blount County Jail in Tennessee, I was dragged from my bunk and forced to the floor face down. My arms were twisted on my back and put in plastic handcuffs, [then I was] dragged by my feet from my cell to a common area where there were maybe 40 or 50 inmates lying on the floor, equally trussed. Two police dog handlers in black uniform and visored helmets held two wildly yapping German shepherds and a Doberman about two feet from my head. I could smell its foul breath. Saliva kept dripping on my sleeve and arm. The dog was hysterical, as was its handler, who had trouble holding it back. It kept rearing on his hind legs with its teeth clanking together. I saw young female police in skin-tight flak jackets and combat boots filming this disgusting scene, climbing over the prisoners lying curled up, some shaking like leaves, others sobbing, scared out of their wits! I was shocked by the ruthless, unfeeling behavior of those U.S. prison guards and those special dog handler types, who belonged to a special unit, it seems. We were no insurgents. Some were Mexican illegals, but 98 % were Americans, local people. There was no riot, no reason for this brutality. So it is the norm, Bill – it’s not an aberration. The treatment was nasty in every way. It was a disgrace for America! I, who always was very fond of America, had myself a reality check. Reality is very different from the propaganda we are fed. That, obviously, is the New American style of frightening people. Jefferson, Washington, and Madison would turn over in their graves as to what happened to their Early American dream! ____ Meanwhile, more and more people are finding their way to our cause who realize they have been lied to in so many ways, including who Ernst Zundel is and what he stands for. Many of them are young – the oldsters of the war time generation who have financed the Revisionist outreach up to now are slowly passing from this earth. The young ones are the ones who are going to rescue whatever is left to be rescued of the country once proudly called America. Here is one such letter from a young man who recently found us: Dear Zundels, Greetings from Ohio! I saw a post on Stormfront.org promoting your new book, and ordered it right away. It took only 2 days for me to read. I must say that I am ashamed of myself for not following this case more closely. I am aghast at Mr. Zundel’s treatment by the “modern” governments of our day and time. I am sorry that I can not contribute more financially. I am married with 2 children, making $7.00 per hour, and my wife and I are trying to get me through pre-med at Ohio State University. I had a bit of a “book fund” in my PayPal account that I’ve been hording, since funds are very limited, and I love books so very much. I can say proudly that the last book that I purchased with the money was, “Setting the Record Straight: Letters from Cell # 7”. Upon finishing the book I promptly donated what was left of my meager account to your (our!) cause. I feel so very helpless, but if there is anything that I can do, please do not hesitate to ask! About 3 pages into the book I started to meditate on, and pray for you both. I have not stopped. Please convey to Mr. Zundel that I also feel that music is a great way “communicate” to our people. I have recently (re)discovered classical music, and it does stir my DNA! I have so much more to say, so little time. Can we write to Mr. Zundel while he is deep in the gulag? Can we send him stamps, books, envelopes, et cetera? Again, if I can help in some way, let me know. You both are in my thoughts and prayers. Ernst Zundel is a precious Human Being.
