Scratch a Truther....

Find a Holocaust Denier underneath. Rachel from North London has the details on the termination of an honorary research fellow at the University of Central London. Nicholas Kollerstrom, a British "Truther", has also done quite a bit of "research" into the Holocaust, utilizing the usual suspects (Zundel, IHR, etc.).

Rachel is a survivor of the 7/7/05 London subway bombings who has been harassed by the British kooks for daring to tell her story. Discussion of Kollerstrom's views here.

He wrote: “Let us hope the schoolchildren visitors are properly taught about the elegant swimming-pool at Auschwitz, built by the inmates, who would sunbathe there on Saturday and Sunday afternoons while watching the water-polo matches; and shown the paintings from its art class, which still exist; and told about the camp library which had some 45,000 volumes for inmates to choose from, plus a range of periodicals; and the six camp orchestras at Auschwitz/Birkenau, its theatrical performances, including a children’s opera, the weekly camp cinema, and even the special brothel established there.”

Jeez, sounds like a cruise ship! As Rachel notes, it's not so disgusting that people like this exist, but that they are welcomed into the 9-11 and 7-7 Truther camps until they become too much of an embarrassment.

Why all the fuss? It's not the one man, Kollerstrom and his horrible views that bothers me. There will always be nutters, after all.

It's the fact that Kollerstrom - and people like him, with similarly extreme views fit so very comfortably into the so- called '9/11 Truth/7/7 Truth Movement'. They post on their forums. They come to their meetings. They fit right in.

And that's scary.

No surprise, the British "Truthers" are standing by their man:

Having heard about all of this tonight from a phone call from Tony, may I remind everyone what Voltaire is attributed to have said:

'I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it'

We must stick by Nick - our freedoms are under attack and the actions of UCL are disgraceful and ill thought through. Spread the word - Rachel North is our equivalent to Richard Warman in Canada (See She must be exposed for the very sick, spiteful and possibly controlled person she is.

Retiring 9/11 Co-Chair

Countdown to 9-11 "Truthers" denouncing this man in three, two,--err, wait a minute! Countdown to 9-11 "Truthers" denouncing us for publicizing this in three, two....

Update: Rachel notes in the comments that the "Truthers" have focused their ire on her, despite the fact that this story was originally broken by BlairWatch. Let me add too that Rachel has written a book about her harrowing experiences. She is an inspiration to us all.
