Paul Craig Roberts, The Holocaust

Paul Craig Roberts

Having been fraudulently declared on Wikipedia by CIA and Zionist trolls to be a “Holocaust Denier,” I decided to see what that meant. I turned to Ron Unz’s article “American Pravda: Holocaust Denial.” Just as incompetent Wikipedia attributed David Irving’s views to me, no doubt Wikipedia will credit me with authorship of Ron Unz’s article.

Ron Unz is a prolific reader who provides reliable accounts. His article reports on books that promote the official Holocaust story and on books that have researched the Holocaust and find facts different from the official story. The best way to get your feet wet on any subject is to see what Ron Unz has to say. Unz, of course, is thorough, because he understands the importance of truth. Reading his articles is like reading a monograph. This one is 18,000 words. It takes committment. You have to really want to know. The alternative is to read the dozen plus books that Unz reports on. So, it is either Unz’s 18,000 words or a couple of million words. I suggest the shortcut that Unz provides. If it spurs your interest, you can start on the books.

Unz’s article begins with a map of Europe showing 15 countries in which any denial of the official Holocaust account, whether true or not, lands the denier in prison.  I have always wondered why the story of The Holocaust, which has been used to extract billions of dollars from Switzerland and the German taxpayers and to shield Israel from its vast war crimes, violations of international law, and United Nations Resolutions (see Norman Finkelstein, The Holocaust Industry), is thought by Zionists to be so fragile that it cannot stand challenge. A story that is true has nothing to fear from denial, as the facts will defend the story. If Zionists are confident of The Holocaust story, they should show their confidence by permitting their account to be examined and debated. The truth will emerge, and if Zionists are correct they will be vindicated.

My interest in The Holocaust is not whether it is true or partly true or false. My interest is in its position as a dogma that causes 15 countries to imprison skeptics. Dogmas have not been popular in the Western world since scientists won the struggle with the Catholic Church over whether Earth or the Sun was the center of the solar system.

For reasons of religious authority, the Church insisted that Earth was fixed and the Sun circled Earth. Astronomers said it was the opposite. Astronomers were at a disadvantage not only because the Church had more authority but also because everyone could see the Sun rise in the east, circle Earth and set in the west. No one could see Earth turning on its axis as it circled the Sun. It took imagination, reason, and abstract thought to see the process as it really was. Indeed, even today in the 21st century we still speak, incorrectly, of the Sun rising in the East and setting in the West, because that is what it looks like.

I mention this controversy not to imply that dogmas are always incorrect and, therefore, that The Holocaust is incorrect like the Catholic Church. What concerns me about dogmas is not whether they are true or false but that they prohibit free inquiry. Science, democracy, civil liberty, and modern society are based on free inquiry, free speech, and free thought. Dogmas are inconsistent with free society; yet, we have an institutionalized dogma, supported by prison sentences if it is violated. If we can have one unchallengeable dogma, what’s to prevent a second, a third, a hundred, a thousand? It is a slippery slope.

Indeed, we are already sliding down the slippery slope. For example, it has become extremely difficult, if not impossible, to investigate the genetic basis of intelligence. All sorts of people can be upset by findings of various inquiries, both scientific and scholarly. Once we start setting aside free inquiry because it upsets some people, where does that take us? As I wrote in my December 3, 2019 column, “Can Truth Be Our Future?” it takes us back to pre-modern time when truth issued from the voice of authority and served authority. We are a lot closer to returning to this pre-modern time than we are aware.

Another problem with the official Holocaust story is that it is so inflexible that there is no room for people who agree with it to correct errors. Suppose, for example, that German documents documenting The Holocaust were finally found, and the recorded number was 4 million. To publish the document would be risky in the 15 countries, because technically it denies the official figure of 6 million and thereby constitutes holocaust denial. David Irving, for example, found evidence that hundreds of thousands of Jews were massacred, but not in gas chambers, so his confirmation of Jewish deaths made him a Holocaust denier.

My interest in The Holocaust is not its truth or falsity. My interest is in the precedent it sets for preventing free inquiry and debate. Other topics are already joining The Holocaust as issues closed to debate. It is obvious that all sorts of interests will seek this protection for their agendas.

Unz got interested in The Holocaust because of an attack on the libertarian magazine Reason for publishing holocaust deniers. At the time Unz accepted The Holocaust story because he had heard it repeated so often. But the attack on libertarians as holocaust deniers made him curious, and he decided to investigate. This is what he found:  American Pravda: Holocaust Denial by Ron Unz.

  1. The US as Israel’s Colony

    by Philip Giraldi

    https://russia-insider.com/en/jew-fatigue-us-police-forced-undergo-holocaust-training-trips-israel-funded-uncle-sam/ri27982

    Jewish groups in the United States are adept at creating mechanisms that benefit themselves and also frequently Israel at the expense of the American taxpayer. The proliferating holocaust museums are a good example, sometimes built by private donations but then paid for and operated by the local government. The national holocaust museum in Washington is, for example, supported by the taxpayer to the tune of $54 million per year. When one considers that the so-called holocaust occurred nearly eighty years ago and did not involve the United States at all, it is a remarkable achievement to so memorialize the claimed uniqueness of Jewish suffering, which then is used to justify other abuses and excuse Israel’s ongoing war crimes.

    For those who deny that claims of the uniqueness of Jewish suffering are exploited and even promoted in order to be able to influence public opinion while also obtaining special favors from government, one might cite specific instances where that has most definitely been the case. Jewish organizations receive over 90% of discretionary grants from the Department of Homeland Security, for example, and Israel benefits from $3.8 billion in aid annually plus another $10 billion through bogus charities, trade concessions and U.S. government funded projects approved by Congress that the American public knows little or nothing about.

    And benefiting Jews worldwide is also part of the agenda. Apart from the creation of the state of Israel itself, which was opposed by most of the U.S. foreign policy establishment, the first major effort to condition U.S. foreign policy to benefit Jews specifically came with the Jackson-Vanik Amendment of 1975, which made some aspects of relations with the Soviet Union conditional on that country’s willingness to let Jews emigrate. Far more outrageous was the so-called Lautenberg Amendment enshrined in the 1990 Public Law 101-167 that granted refugee status to Russian Jews even though they were not actually being persecuted or in any way endangered. The refugee status is significant as it provided food stamps, housing, social security, Medicaid and educational benefits along with a free ticket into the U.S. to an “estimated…350,000 to 400,000 Jews [who] entered the United States …”

    Holocaust education is mandatory in the public schools of 15 states and Jewish groups are active in determining just what appears in textbooks about Israel, which means that the propagandizing about Jews and Israel begins early and continues throughout one’s education. Twenty-seven states have laws criminalizing or otherwise punishing anyone who advocates boycotts of Israel while the federal government has similar legislation in the pipeline and has declared that criticism of Israel is ipso facto anti-Semitism.

    Given all of that it is perhaps not surprising to learn that policemen in Tampa Florida are now undergoing “holocaust training,” sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League. Conveniently, there is a holocaust museum located just down the road in St. Petersburg where the first group of officers was taken to be indoctrinated.

    The training is mandatory and is reported to be the first in the state of Florida, though more such initiatives will likely be in the pipeline as governor Ron DeSantis has declared himself to be the most pro-Israel head of any state in the U.S. The newscaster discussing the training also observed in passing that “holocaust awareness training” has been mandatory “for about a decade” for all federal law enforcement officers. It is difficult to imagine what such training is intended to do in the American context, though it clearly seeks to remind trainees that in Nazi Germany policemen were involved in concentration camps and the claimed execution of Jews.
    One would think that the public will eventually arrive at an “enough already” point when it comes to government and private sector efforts to exploit the holocaust and monetize Jewish suffering. Unless the Jewish creators of the “training” program honestly believe that something like Germany 1939-45 is coming to the United States and are intent on giving a warning, it would seem to be yet one more tip of the hat to Jewish power in America, quite likely also intended to send a positive message about what Israel represents. What it all has to do with U.S. national security or in benefiting the American people is, of course, irrelevant.

    Joint training programs run in Israel are also being used to indoctrinate American police forces and are equally difficult to comprehend as the Israelis are clueless when it comes to conducting investigations or protecting all of their country’s citizens. Israel’s cops are at the forefront of state violence against Palestinians as well as serving as protectors of rampaging heavily armed settlers who destroy Arab livelihoods so they can steal their land. The Israeli police are also quite good at using the “Palestinian chair” for torture when they are not shooting Arab teenagers in the back, skills that American cops hopefully will not emulate.

    In fact, there have been suggestions that certain policemen might well be picking up some unanticipated pointers from the Israelis. Georgia has been experiencing a surge in officer involved shootings, nearly half of the victims being unarmed or shot from behind. As this has unfolded, the state continues to pursue a “police exchange” program with Israel run through Georgia State University.

    The police “exchange programs” began twenty-seven years ago in 1992 and are paid for through grants from the U.S. Department of Justice as well as from the state and local governments. Reportedly “law enforcement from [a number of] U.S. states have participated in the program, including those from Tennessee, Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, North Carolina, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Nevada, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Washington, D.C., and West Virginia.” In some states and local jurisdictions, the Israel exchange program is managed by the Anti-Defamation League, which also sponsors propagandistic seminars on Israeli “counter-terrorism” practices throughout the U.S.

    Some states and cities, however, concerned over being linked to Israel’s militarized police forces and their brutal occupation of Palestinian land, are beginning to withdraw from the training program. Recently the Vermont State Police, the Northampton, Massachusetts police department and the Durham North Carolina city police have canceled their planned training in Israel.
    There has been particular concern expressed over the Israeli “us-versus-them” dual track mode of policing where the 20% of the country’s citizens that are Arab are regarded as an enemy while the settlers who prey on the Palestinians are automatically protected by police solely because they are Jewish. Lethal force is frequently resorted to on a “shoot-to-kill” basis in any incident involving Arabs and Jews, even when there is no serious threat. Some critics of the training note how that type of policing is basically racial profiling while areas on what was once the Palestinian West Bank and along the Gaza border have become free fire zones for the Israeli army and law enforcement, killing hundreds of Arabs, many of them children. Palestinians injured by policemen or settlers also obtain no redress from the Israeli courts with only 3 per cent of investigations resulting in a conviction.

    That some American police forces are now questioning the wisdom of training in an Israel where police officers can freely shoot and kill members of an oppressed religious and ethnic minority should not be a surprise but for the fact that it took so long. That Jewish groups in the United States get away with obtaining taxpayer money to promote an essentially criminal Israeli enterprise is perhaps just as discouraging as it suggests that Jewish power and money will continue to prevail in the brainwashing of the American public. Holocaust training and exchanges in Israel for police officers are shameful ideas, promoted by the usual ambitious government officials who pander to the Jewish lobby for their own personal gain.

    1. So basically because some countries have banned it something is up. Maybe it has to do with not wanting to drum up the same BS nazi crap all over again and have history repeat itself? Why doesn’t the author tell us what they don’t believe? Like facts. Are you one of the only X number of Jews died crowd so therefore it all must be false or are you in the it didn’t happen at all crowd because I got to tell you those people are insane. Personally I don’t care if 100k or 100 million Jews were exterminated you don’t put people in box cars and kill them. But that’s just me. Now let’s consider the fact that Satan has been trying to exterminate the Jews since oh I don’t know, the beginning of time. So it would seem anyone in the anti Jew crowd is on the side of Satan. It’s one or the other. Zionism is something else totally so I won’t even get into that.

      1. Not to make the obvious point, but no one is supporting mass murder and World War II did bring about the deaths of millions. The question is whether the official narrative according to which 6,000,000 Jews were exterminated in concentration camps using Zyklon B in gas chambers. That is the question. Do you believe it or not–because the evidence against it is extensive, objective and compelling.

        1. If I might add (and i am sure this is not the first time this has been said), that the i term, ‘holocaust denier’ is no less an injected title from our hidden masters than the title, ‘conspiracy theorist’; both intended to draw dispersions to those who do not and will not accept the official story. One is either this or that with no gray area. In addition….again not the first time anyone has heard this…..why are the Jews singled out as the only victims and sufferers of WW II. ….almost countless nationalities, religions and ethnicities were also victimized.

          There is supposed to be something special about the Jews and I have yet to discern what is behind that uniqueness.

          Could be genetics have proved them to be of a higher IQ than others. I do not know. But if so, that makes them different, not better and would put them in a position of more responsibility for and respect of their fellow humans.

          We are ALL special and ALL creatures of some creator.

          1. Yes, of course there is something special about the Jews.
            They are gods “chosen” people!

            Trump loves them so they must be ok.

  2. Isn’t it amazing how one particular so called religious group seeks to use the power of laws to shut down criticism or questions about religious claims of the number of deaths in a particular period when man’s inhumanity to man did not begin or end with WWII did it? Why would they seek such drastic measures as penalties of law for anyone seeking to question their death claims? The only explanation for this bizarre behavior is because they know they are lying about the numbers and if anyone questions the figures, the large benefits might dry up? Aren’t they basically running a con game on the world here all in the name of RELIGION? Religion is an arbitrary belief system not based on any logical set of rules requiring any consistency as say the laws of physics for example. How many other religions are engaged in such a con? Do you ever read of Lutherans or Episcopalians or Catholics or descendants of Brigham Young or Baptists or members of the Church of Christ or Presbyterians etc., etc., etc., seeking such laws? So far as I know it is only this one so called “religion” behaving like man’s inhumanity to man began in WWII. But we know from history man’s inhumanity to man has been going on since the beginning of recorded history. A good example is the Holocaust of the Armenians by the Turks in the WWI period which in many ways is better documented at 1.5 million but no such drastic laws are in place for that massive mistreatment of man by man. In fact the same perpetrators of WWII seek to obstruct and deny the similar Holocaust of WWI by the Turks as do the descendants of the Turks themselves! Isn’t it obvious to all these crooks are running a con game to prevent anyone from questioning their exaggerated lies, all to keep the gravy train going? All this is a disgusting obscenity. Read the earlier article Jim posted on the gang rape of the Russian Empire. Isn’t this what is happening to the U.S. and other parts of the world today such as the constant attacks on Palestinians from whom land was stolen? By the way one of America’s greatest writers Mark Twain addressed these issues and concluded “Man Evolved DOWN from the higher animals”! Read his great book published after his death “Letters from the Earth” published about 1938.

  3. On December 3, 2019 at 8:08 pm… in that Post from Kurt Nimmo, I made a comment about how Jews operate in business.
    I wonder if anyone read it or even understood it? I will repeat it here. Its a short comment.

    “I’ve talked on this blog how Jewish diamond wholesalers chased my uncle out of the jewelry business because they would not wholesale diamonds to a Christian gentile. They controlled the diamond market at that time. He loved the jewelry business but had to close his store. This was the 1950s era.
    Jewish business practices are brutal. They’re unamerican and unfair. They favor only other jews.
    I have a rather unsavory opinion of jews. Does that make me antisemetic? Do you think I’m being unfair?”

    moderated
    1. Don, I thought I had replied, but it looks like I got side-tracked.
      As far as i am concerned, from your personal experience, you certainly have a right to have an unsavory opinion of the Jews. I have the same. My father worked for them for 40 years basically as a slave….so, my opinion parallels yours. We all have a right to have opinions of others based on our own experience. BUT, only if they are Jewish, does that make you a bigot or an anti-Semitic. If those wholesalers were WASPS, no such title would be bestowed.
      Jews are special. WHY? Because THEY say so.

      moderated
      1. Thanks Will for the comment. The Jews are their own worst enemy. I can certainly understand why Ben Franklin wrote what he did in the 1700s.
        Trump is mentally blocked in a box because of his son-in-law and daughter. I wonder if Trump realizes that he might be making a mistake with that EO about Jews and their status. He should probably just remain silent on this topic for now.
        I can well remember our dinner table talk about my uncle and how he was maltreated by Jews. It was all very sad and caused my family a lot of grief. The business practices of Jews is savage.

        moderated
    2. Don, thanks for your story. Terrible for your family and you to have suffered the loss of your family business. Unconscionable.

      I heard this behavior described before, by another person whose family business was also in jewelry. He said his family was not only pushed out of their own business, but maliciously gangstalked in their subsequent lives.

      The two stories corroborate each other and together illuminate the criminal power that aggregated interests, such as Jewish business, wield against the individual.

      moderated
      1. Thanks Toni for your corroboration. This is what Jewish business people were doing in Germany and all over Europe before WWII. Many people were very angry at Jewish people. Their business practices are cutthroat.

        My uncle had just bought a new lighted sign for the store, my mother worked at that store [lost her job at the store because of the forced closure.], ….all was lost because of Jewish maliciousness. This was in 1950.
        Yes Toni, our two stories mirror each other and I have heard of others.

    Trump to sign order to interpret Judaism as a nationality

    President Donald Trump will sign an executive order on Wednesday to interpret Judaism as a nationality and not just a religion, a move that the Trump administration believes will fight what they perceive as anti-Semitism on college campuses, a White House official said.

  5. Once again, the Jews have become a victim of a hate crime….one must wonder how many times this happens every day across the country. Top comment at this time is superb:

    Just like when Sirhan Sirhan the Palestian was framed and tied into the JFK assassination narrative…. eventually there is just too many Cohencidences and the Mossad-Epstein-Jewish Mafia just exposes themselves as apex of corruption even more by tying themselves into every narrative they can in their obvious false flags.

    As only 2% of the population, and if one could do straight statistical analysis on all of this fuckery, it would be so epically unlikely to become essentially impossible.

    They continue to expose themselves.

    Mossad Epstein didnt kill himself

    And

    Building 7 didn’t fell itself.

    But the Jewish apex wll always be placed in the false flag narratives as victim to be protected above all, precisely to protect the Jewish Oligarchs at the apex of this global nightmare.

    1. Another very interesting comment on that same article:

      This prophecy, by Benjamin Franklin, was made in a “CHIT CHAT AROUND THE TABLE DURING INTERMISSION,” at the Philadelphia Constitutional Convention of 1787. This statement was recorded in the dairy of Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, a delegate from South Carolina. “I fully agree with General Washington, that we must protect this young nation from an insidious influence and impenetration. The menace, gentlemen, is the Jews. In whatever country Jews have settled in any great number, they have lowered its moral tone; depreciated its commercial integrity; have segregated themselves and have not been assimilated; have sneered at and tried to undermine the Christian religion upon which that nation is founded, by objecting to its restrictions; have built up a state within the state; and when opposed have tried to strangle that country to death financially, as in the case of Spain and Portugal. For over 1,700 years, the Jews have been bewailing their sad fate in that they have been exiled from their homeland, as they call Palestine. But gentlemen, did the world give it to them in fee simple, they would at once find some reason for not returning. Why? Because they are vampires, and vampires do not live on vampires. They cannot live only among themselves. They must subsist on Christians and other people not of their race. If you do not exclude them from these United States, in their Constitution, in less than 200 years they will have swarmed here in such great numbers that they will dominate and devour the land and change our form of government, for which we Americans have shed our blood, given our lives our substance and jeopardized our liberty. If you do not exclude them, in less than 200 years our descendants will be working in the fields to furnish them substance, while they will be in the counting houses rubbing their hands. I warn you, gentlemen, if you do not exclude Jews for all time, your children will curse you in your graves. Jews, gentlemen, are Asiatics, let them be born where they will nor how many generations they are away from Asia, they will never be otherwise. Their ideas do not conform to an American’s, and will not even thou they live among us ten generations. A leopard cannot change its spots. Jews are Asiatics, are a menace to this country if permitted entrance, and should be excluded by this Constitutional Convention.

  6. I am not afraid to weigh in on the Holocaust. Do you see the American Indian building museums all over the world to remind us how much they suffered during their centuries long genocide? No. How about the Russians and their millions starved to death? No. The Chinese and their 50 million murdered by their own gov’t. No. the Cambodians…No. The Armenians? NO! Why? Who but the Jews wants a special victim class permanently associated with them?

    EXPOSING FALSEHOODS AND REVEALING TRUTHS

    Roberts stated three times that he is indifferent to “truth or falsity.”

    Truth and falsity take primacy over “free speech and free thought.”

    Without free inquiry we cannot expose falsehoods and reveal truths nor can we establish right order in the universe (logos).

    1. Dachsie…Could be I misunderstand what you are saying. You seem disagree with Roberts when he chooses free speech and inquiry over truth and falsity, but then go on to say without free inquiry we cannot expose falsehoods and reveal truth.

      1. Humans were made for truth. We seek it, desire it, by our very nature. There is an anti-human force in the world that continually fights against truth. The world won ‘t work without truth and the pursuit of it and man must use his gift of reason for the truth, for the good.
        Yet, PCR seems to making a special point of how the truth or falsity of “The Holocaust” is irrelevant to him. I do not know why that is irrelevant to him but it appears almost as though he wants to dodge the issue of falsity or truth regarding that particular issue.

  8. Sandy Hook deaths are denied by a very small minority and believed by millions. The believers are in a huge majority….probably around 95%+.

    Putting people in prison for whatever their beliefs is a kind of madness. Let’s hope the US does not go down the path that Europe has traveled. But the US uses another method of destruction for the deniers.

    In the US if you’re a SH denier you’re simply called a crazy conspiracy theorist, possibly sued, fined and threatened with financial ruin.
