Up Canada Way
Joshua Blakeney, the dimwitted British Truther studying in Canada who claimed that Israel's fingerprints were all over 9-11 and then tried to weasel out by saying that just because their fingerprints were all over 9-11 didn't necessarily mean they were guilty, has an interesting Facebook buddy:
Joshua Blackeney (sic), a well-known Canadian 9/11 nut case, is connected through Facebook to Bradley Smith, the 'founder' of the Committee for Open Debate and the Holocaust. Yes, it is a Holocaust Denial kind of thing.
Blakeney posted on Veterans Today, his professor Anthony J. Hall's review of Kay's Among the Truthers.
This development helps block wider appreciation in Europe and North America of the historic and continuing importance of Islam in the genesis of Western civilization, global civilization. The sacred myth of 9/11 helps renew the old imperial ploy of divide and conquer. By highlighting issues of religion and ethnicity as the primary cause of, and justification for, global conflict, the sacred myth of 9/11 diverts attention away from the huge and growing gap between rich and poor.
As you may recall, it was Kevin Barrett who claimed the Holocaust itself was a "sacred" "myth":
I would still have to characterize the Holocaust as it is taught in the US as a hideously destructive myth. (A myth is a sacred, worldview-inaugurating story its users believe to be true.)
Hall's review is extremely long, and largely boils down to griping that Kay doesn't engage in a point-by-point debunking of 9-11 nuttery. Of course, point-by-point debunking doesn't impress the Truthers anyway, as can be seen by their reaction to the Popular Mechanics book.
By the way, Veterans Today itself was recently exposed as something of a bogus operation. But why would Blakeney post Hall's review there? Well, here's a pretty good clue:
What will you find on "Veterans Today"? Well, everything has pretty much one focus:
BLAME ISRAEL FOR EVERYTHING
Revere (a Truther moron himself) goes on to show some of the nuttier stuff about Israel at Veterans Today, some of which James has highlighted in previous posts. And if you're looking for Holocaust Denial over there, you won't be disappointed. Among their columnists (aside from Blakeney) is Dr Ingrid Rimland Zundel. Yep, that Zundel:
Years before I met and married Ernst Zundel and, thus, became a Holocaust Denier – because this malady, Denial-of-the-Holocaust, can be infectious, in case you didn’t know! – I made my living as a kiddie shrink: in academic parlance, an Educational Psychologist.
Once Ernst and I became a team, he asked me to do a monograph on “The Impact of Words on the Mind,” by which he hoped to neutralize the virulent character assassination of an entire people, the Germans who fought World War II, unleashed on them sans mercy by another set of bipeds, the Victims of the Holocaust. The latter try to run down every last “War Criminal” on earth. The former seem without defenses.
I'm not saying that Blakeney himself is a Holocaust Denier. But he sure has a lot of connections to them.
