The Continuing Saga Of Steve Campbell

We've posted a time or three on the strange doings on a small TV channel in Aspen, Colorado, which was happy to broadcast some of Steve Campbell's "Truther" videos, but woke up when he wanted them to play a Holocaust Denial video. Better late than never, I suppose, but Campbell's not taking the decision lightly. In a letter to the editor of the local paper, he complains bitterly:

The only conclusion that can be drawn is that this has nothing whatsoever to do with hate, and everything to do with an attempt to hide the truth. After all, you wouldn’t want indoctrinated and brainwashed Jews and “Christian” Zionists to learn that 6 million Jews were not deliberately murdered in concentration camps. According to the best information available, approximately 300,000 people died during the war in all the concentration camps from all causes. And the vast majority of those were from disease.

You wouldn’t want everyone to know that Auschwitz had a post office, a medical clinic, dental care, a theater, a symphony made up of inmates, a swimming pool, a brothel, a library and organized soccer games.

A swimming pool for the guards. I don't know about the brothel, but I'd be awfully surprised if it didn't turn out to be also for the guards and featuring the involuntary participation of young Jewish women. And get this bit:

You don’t want your fellow Jews to learn that the Zionists and Hitler were in collusion and that the vast majority of the suffering of the Jewish people during World War II can be directly attributed to the Zionists who were willing to sacrifice their “lesser brethren” so that the state of Israel would become a reality.

What suffering of the Jewish people? I thought they were shouting "goooooooooalll" at soccer matches and playing the tuba in the symphony?
