I am writing in response to Executive Director Nossel’s recent letter regarding the release of reporter Jason Rezaian and poets Fatemeh Ekhtesari and Medhi Mousavi. Thank you for the good new! While escapes from theocratic regimes make good press and fund raising material, I am writing regarding a more pernicious threat to Freedom of Expression.

Dear Sir or Madam-
We are writing to you to support the application for a visa by the French comedian and social critic Dieudonne M’bala M’bala.
Mr. M’bala M’bala is an important figure in France and represents the views of many young people and people outside of the “Establishment.”
Unfortunately he has become the target of a disgraceful program of censorship by the French and Israeli governments both for his concern regarding the oppression of the Palestinian peoples and his lack …
3D Imagery Demonstrates the Auschwitz Hole Hoax
By Eric Hunt
As pointed out by many revisionists before, the four holes in the roof of the morgue of Crematorium I at Auschwitz 1 camp do not “fit” the original configuration of the building. In fact, they are centered over the current post-war modified configuration of the room.
The Auschwitz Museum claims these were the locations of genuine holes, which were then filled in by the Germans when they chose to convert the crematorium to an air-raid shelter for the nearby SS hospital.…

*** I did my first public interview in years for The League of Extraordinary Revisionists (LOER). Inspired and developed by the triumvirate of Fred Leuchter, Jim Rizoli and Diane King, LOER is reaching out to the ‘old corps’ of revisionists, providing a venue through the interview process for these revisionists and also to those not yet so well known. Rizoli and his team are in Framingham, Massachusetts. When possible, he will record the interview with a camera. That’s how he handled those with Fred Leuchter and Germar Rudolf. Robert Faurisson, Frederick Toben and myself were …

I want to congratulate, The Daily Iowan staff for allowing me to present my book, A Personal History of Moral Decay, via a text link in the Daily Iowan. It’s a tiny ad, it has only six (6) words, A Personal History of Moral Decay, which serves as a link to the book on Amazon.com

The Establishment is definitely after the Controversial French comedian and social critic Dieudonne M’bala M’bala,or Dieudonne, as he is known.
More than Satisfied
In November Dieudonne was sentenced to two months in jail by a Belgian court for comments he made during a show in Liege in 2012. The comments, deemed too controversial to be repeated by BBC News, were tagged as “Anti-Semitic.” All the BBC would mysteriously announce was that, “The court ruled all the accusations against Dieudonne were established.”
But other news outlets described the offensive language; ie. calling Hitler a “joyful braggart,” a “sweet …

The week before Christmas seems an odd time to release a Holocaust movie, particularly one as macabre as Son of Saul. It is a Tale from “Inside the Gas Chamber of Auschwitz,” presumably Morgue 1 of Krema II and focuses on a Jewish Sonderkommando named, Saul Ausländer. One reviewer describes the movie thusly, “For most of the 107-minute fiction film, the camera remains fixed on the face of one inmate at Auschwitz-Birkenau as he races around the death camp trying to bury a boy he believes is his son.”
Other reviewers described the movie as, “A season …
This interview is the first we have done via Skype. I look like an old man here. There’s nothing we can do about the quality of the visuals, but I have been told the back and forth is interesting and amusing. I enjoyed working with Mr. Rizoli. Even got a few laughs out of it. Anyhow, here we are. Tell me what you think.

One night in late December I dream that I’ve been gassed at Auschwitz. In the dream, as I become aware of myself inside the gas chamber, the gassing itself is already over. I see myself sitting naked in the center of the floor; the room around me choked with naked cadavers heaped to the ceiling. The dead are filthy with feces, urine, vomit and menstrual blood. The scene is faintly illuminated in an ugly green light.
I’m not dead and I’m not suffering. Before I have time to evaluate my situation two large doors at …

Austria’s largest newspaper, the tabloid Kronen Zeitung, published this breathless report (in German) on 6,300 census forms recently found inside an interior wall in a mansion close by the Parliament building in Budapest. The forms, circulated in four districts of Budapest on May 30, 1944, required owners of residential property to report various data on their holdings, including the numbers of tenants or occupants, and the numbers of Christians and Jews among these.
The timing of this action was auspicious: the Wehrmacht had just invaded and occupied Hungary, as the Red Army approached from the …

Michael Hoffman posted an interesting blog on All Saints Day regarding the sentencing of Irish artist Dermot Mulqueen. Mr. Mulqueen was sentenced to five months in jail for giving a lunchtime public performance on January 23rd 2015 where he put an axe through a TV at the Daniel O’Connell monument in Ennis town center.
No one was hurt or threatened by Mr. Mulqueen’s performance but Judge Patrick Durcan found that Mulqueen, “behaved in the most offensive way, not merely towards a particular section of society but towards society generally”.
Presumably, the offense was not believing in the impossible …

The essay that won first place in FIRE’s 2014–2015 Academia Essay Contest was quite uplifting. You awarded it to Arianna Samet, a junior at Ma’ayanot Yeshiva High School in Teaneck, New Jersey, for her essay, “America is The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. But…Are its Universities?”
At the same time, her references to her grandparents and their experiences in the Holocaust struck me as ironic in their …
Friends and Supporters:
I have begun to insert a small ad as an Online text link in student newspapers at campuses around the country. It is the smallest and least expensive ad that can be run. The entire text of the ad consists of the title of my book, A Personal History of Moral Decay, a collection of autobiographical stories set in Korea, Mexico, Hollywood, Vietnam and Hollywood again. Currently the text link is running in The Daily Iowan and The Vermont Cynic.
The surprise here is that when the link is clicked on it does not take the …

You would think that a Court of “Human Rights” would defend the rights of a Comedian to make jokes with a biting social commentary, Right?
Cartoons about Mohammed are ok, yes.Mocking Jesus Christ is humorous, of course. All France united to protest the Islamic attacks on the iconoclast magazine Charlie Hebdo. Correct?
Well…..think again. Europe has taboos as sacred as those of ISIS.
Europe’s top human rights court has rejected an appeal by the controversial French comic Dieudonne M’Bala M’Bala, saying the right to free expression does not protect antisemitism or Holocaust denial.
Dieudonne, as …

Mark Oppenheimer, a professor at Yale University, writes for The New York Times Magazine, The Believer, Salon, Slate, Mother Jones, The Nation, The New Republic and others, in addition to The Tablet. So we should take him seriously.
In his Tablet article this Jewish writer notes that Willis Carto was a “plain old Caucasian crazy.” He doesn’t have anything interesting to say about Carto. He does note that: “. . . there is an unspoken journalistic consensus in this country that one does not write about the craziest of …
The Holocaust in the Palm of Your Hand
By Jett Rucker
It’s a gas valve—no doubt about that to anyone (apparently there are very few of us) who has ever put a wrench to a gas pipe. It would have controlled a flow of natural gas or other gaseous fuel to a burner in an oven or a furnace the way millions of such devices do every day in homes, offices and factories all over the world.
But wait! What’s this? Clearly stamped into the side of the casting? It can’t be. But yet … there it is, plain as …

Germany—or the German government and its taxpayers, anyway—is all things to all people, at least so far as money, weapons and even Lebensraum (living space) are concerned. While Germany was still digging itself out of its own rubble, in 1952, then-Chancellor Konrad Adenauer generously donated ongoing reparations payments to victims of the Holocaust, extracted from his surviving countrymen as they struggled to rise from their ashes. Since then, Germany’s hard-working Bundesfinanzministerium has ladled out uncounted billions of dollars’ worth of these reparations to people said to have been harmed in, during, by, or around the time of …
Bundesministerium der Justiz und für Verbraucherschutz
Dear Bundesminister Maas:
I am writing to you with a suggestion on how to deal with Holocaust Revisionism. Rather than prosecute small book publishers and individual scholars I suggest that you tackle someone in a position of authority and power and show that you are truly committed to controlling discussion on the subject.
Recently a powerful individual publicly blamed starting the Holocaust not on the Germans but on Palestinians. The headlines tell it all- Netanyahu: Hitler Didn’t Want to Exterminate the Jews Prime minister tells World Zionist Congress that Hitler only wanted to expel the Jews, …
