One standard of justice for Germans, a different lower one for Americans

The Daily Cougar at the University of Houston regrets, and even apologies, for having published an ad that asks for the name of one person, “with proof,” who was killed in a gas chamber at Auschwitz. The Cougar argues that to ask such a question is “misleading,” “flawed,” “calculating,” “manipulative,” anti-semitic” and is addressed to a “vulnerable audience.” Does that include the academics at U Houston? Poor babies.

Here is a second question we can put to the U Houston professors about the Jewish “Holocaust.”

During WWII – speaking of the German and American states only -- there was the National Socialist German Worker’s Party on the one hand, and the bi-partisan alliance of the Democrat/Republican parties on the other.

The German State is accused of using WMD (gas chambers) to murder innocent civilians by the hundreds of thousands, if not millions, and it is considered uniquely monstrous because of that. At the same time the existence of the German WMD is being questioned in almost every country in the West and throughout the Muslim world.

The American State, governed by a by-partisan Democrat/Republican alliance, used WMD (great fleets of heavy bombers) to intentionally murder hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians in all the major cities in Germany and Japan, ending with the nuclear Holocausts of Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

No one – no one anywhere in the world -- questions the use of WMD for the mass murder of civilians in WWII by Americans.

Yet those who served the German State are uniquely monstrous, while those who served the American State in that war came to be called “the Greatest Generation.” Do the editors of The Daily Cougar understand the implications of this simple observation? Do their professors?

Should we hold Germans to one standard of morality, while we hold ourselves to a different, lower one?

To those of you who work on The Daily Cougar who plan on becoming serious journalists, I would encourage you to encourage a free exchange of ideas everywhere, even on the Holocaust question. A free exchange of ideas is either there for all of us, or it is not there.

That does not mean that you have to publish what is not civil. The most radical ideas can be presented in a civil manner, unlike some of those presented here.

Bradley, the cowards at The Daily Cougar took down all the neat comments to their editorial published 27 Mar 09 on grounds of "hate speech." So I sent below-copied ltr-to-editor there. A.

Cowardice, Fascism Of Daily Cougar Exposed Decisively
(Apollonian, 1 Apr 09)

I note Daily Cougar posted an editorial on Mar 27 which denounced the heroic ad of Bradley Smith (see BradleySmithsBlog.blogspot.com) who challenged holohoax slanderers for proof of their lies regarding alleged "murder" of 6 million, etc., during WWII, for which supposed massacre there is no evidence, bodies, remains, bones--nada, zilch, zip, zero.

And when then this putrid holohoax slander is exposed, the vile liars and slanderers scream "hate-speech" and "hate-crime," etc.--I guess they think they're funny.

The editorial in question then inspired more than twenty responses (including my own) which the cowards of Daily Cougar editorial staff couldn't stand, so they just now, today, expunged all the responses, claiming "hate speech," and the usual Orwellian "double-speak" which public education now imposes upon the students.

So in conclusion we see the Bradley Smith Ad was brilliantly successful as it helped to expose the gross lies and slanders of the holohoax, and in addition, it exposed the Orwellian "double-speak" manipulations being inculcated even in the present-day by staff of Daily Cougar, the slimey little cowards.

Apollonian:

You have probably noticed in the past that I have rejected some of your comments for this blog. If I recall correctly, each time I rejected them because of the nature of your language. This comment here represents your typical language rather well. You mean well, but you appear unable to hold a decent conversation with those who believe what you do not believe.

I can only suppose that the entire thead once posted on The Daily Cougar -- and it was some 30 posts, not 20 -- was deleted primarily in reaction to your use of the language. The result was that any "success" my ad had in helping to create a story on the Holocaust question at U Houston has been snuffed out by the impatient, angy, out-of-control language that you are in the habit of using.

I am trying to find ways to open a conversation on a very difficult issue that is taboo on the university campus. I have no idea what it is you want to do, but it is not what I want to do, and I think in this instance you have fucked it up for everyone.

Thanks much.
