Scratch a Truther....

You may recall Anthony Lawson, who did a great job exposing the BS of September Clues, a Truther "No-Planes" video:

Of course, Lawson himself is a Troofer. His sole reason for debunking the no-planers was that he wanted to focus the fruitcakes on different areas of research. However, he's also something of a no-planer himself:

Well, now Lawson has revealed his thoughts about the Holocaust, and as you might expect, it's the usual:
Having been tortured, Rudolf Höss, who was the commander of Auschwitz from 1940 to 1943, almost certainly lied to save the lives of his wife and children. Even if torture and duress cannot not be proven, the overwhelming reason for recognizing the utter falsity of the Höss confession is that the gassing method he described was not scientifically plausible.

Yet Höss’s conviction has stood, by inference, as a testament to the cruelty of Germans in general, since he was tried at Nuremberg, in 1947, and subsequently hanged on April 16th, 1947, in Poland.

With great respect for those who have tried—though harassed, punished, fined, imprisoned and otherwise abused—to tell it like it really was: Arthur R. Butz, Robert Faurisson, Paul Grubach, Gerd Honsik, David Irving, Kevin Käther, Nicholas Kollerstrom, Fred Leuchter, Horst Mahler, Ingrid Rimland, Germar Rudolf, Bradley Smith, Sylvia Stolz, Fredrick Töbin, Ernst Zündel and many others.

Here's the video Lawson has put together expressing his Holocaust Denial.

Another 9/11 truther comes out of the closet as a Jew hater? No surprise there. I love the sympathy extended to mass murder Rudolf Höss in the video description.

And then there's that roll call of Holocaust denying "martyrs."

That's quite a list there from outright Nazis like Zündel, useful idots like Leuchter, the thoroughly discredited "historian" David Irving along with the usual Hitler hugging Jew hating "revisionists"

So to sum up can we say Lawson has revealed himself to be an lying, anti-semitic scumbag who need never again be taken seriously on any subject?

Believe it or not this tripe is being supported by Gilad Atzmon, the Israeli-born British musician and political activist. Which means that as a Jew Atzmon is to jazz what the late Bobby Fischer was to chess. (Bobby, though, to give him his due, was a better chess player than Atzmon is a musician.)

The Nazis kept careful records. The Russians captured most of them and kept them in the KGB archives.

They thought they were saving the world, not committing a crime. That's why they made no effort to hide what they did.

I will give Brian Good some credit: he does seem genuinely appalled by all the Jew-haters in the "truth" movement. Of course, he's still too dumb to ask himself why 9/11 truth attracts so many paranoid cranks and racists.

Bobby Fischer was better at chess than most anyone was at anything, ever.

The moron said, “I have been unable to unearth any specifics about the alleged entire state bureaucracy: official documents, blueprints directives and other records”. Since he claims to live in an Australian living in Thailand I assume his search did extend beyond the Internet. I doubt the Bangkok library has many books on the subject let alone primary material. He obviously didn’t bother to read THE DESTRUCTION OF THE EUROPEAN JEWS by Raul Hilberg , Lucy Dawidowitz’s THE WAR AGAINST THE JEWS or any of the various other books and papers which cited such documents. He falsely implied that our understanding of the Holocaust is comes exclusively from “Jews and Zionists” but false to take into account radically anti-Zionist Jews like Finklestein or Gentile historians like Martin Gilbert, Gerald Reitlinger and Franciszek Piper

The video is replete with other lies and distortions, he cited the discrepancy between the number of people Hoss initially said died at Auschwitz (about 3 million) and currently accepted figures (about 1 million) but in his autobiography written shortly before he was hung Hoss said this was based on a “figure…given to me by Eichmann…Eichmann and his deputy Gunther were the only ones who had the necessary information to calculate the total number of Jews annihilated…I regard the number of 2.5 million as far too high. Even Auschwitz had limits to destructive capacity” he also false made it seem as if there was no other hard evidence than Hoss’ confession. pgs 38 – 9

He used another typical truther tactic, the ‘bait and switch’. He claimed Hoss had “been tortured …[and] almost certainly lied to save the lives of his wife and children” but then admitted “torture and duress cannot not be proven” in fact the only evidence produced of torture is that according accounts by his interrogators made 40 years after the fact he was smacked around a bit when claimed to be someone else then denied sleep for 3 days and when he “was taken out for exercise he was made to wear only jeans and a thin cotton shirt in the bitter cold”

He said Zyklon be would only be toxic above 25.7 C but that was based on the long discredited Leuchter Report

He cited criticism of the Nuremberg Trials especially the conduct of the prosecutors raised by “one of the American judges Charles F. Wennerstrum” that appeared in February 28 1948 newspaper article. But Wennerstrum didn’t participate in the main trails but rather of the 12 ‘Subsequent Nuremberg Trials’ specifically the ‘Hostages Trial’ “This case is also known as the "Southeast Case" because the defendants were all German generals leading the troops in south-eastern Europe during the Balkans Campaign” i.e. it had nothing to do with what happened in the concentration and death camps. The trials ended February 19, 1948 only 9 before the article appeared and 8 of the 10 defendant who came to trial were convicted* so it seems that despite his complains Wennerstrum, who was the presiding judge, concluded the majority of the generals were guilty.

*[originally there were 12 but one committed suicide and another fell ill]

"Bobby Fischer was better at chess than most anyone was at anything, ever."

He was also a complete loon

True. The two often go together.

Walter, I don't think you intended to cause a gag reflex, when you used the Bobby Fischer analogy. Obviously, you are probably not aware the Fischer (although a friggin genius chess master) was a raging, anti-semite of "biblical" proportions. He definitely had serious psycho/sociopathic mental issues.
