Herald wrong in free speech argument

I had rather thought the story at UW-Madison was finished. Sunday last I submitted a Letter to the Editor for publication, thinking that after having been the target of so much scandalous language that they might, possibly, publish it. Doesn't look like it. Still, the Badger did publish an OP Ed by a philosophy student arguing against the Badger's free speech argument.

I think after all the heat a seven-word ad has caused at UW-Madison that some at the Badger would think that not publishing a letter by me and publishing yet another piece criticizing the Badger is a way to apologize yet again. I may be wrong. Anyhow, here are a couple paragraphs and a link to a yet another statement that does not address the issue of my ad, implicit charge that it is taboo to question any significant element of the Jewish Holocaust narrative.

Michael Schwalb, b.1901; Rachel Brat, b.1910; Szlomo Gross, b.1920; Avram Curitki, b.1895; Chana Zommer, b.1915; Frymed Due, b.1896; Jchiel Rubinstein, b.1912; Eljasz Jurysta, b.1912; Podlaski, b.1942; Chaja Bialostocki, b.1919; Jakob Keitl, b.1884; Julijus Flachs, b.1904; Yakov Gelbert, b.1912; Mindla Polska, b.1904; Mosze Sztajn, b.1912; Rachel Grynszpan, b.1900

These 16 names are from Yad Vashem’s Israeli Holocaust Memorial database of Holocaust victims. In order to place a name in the database, the surviving family and friends of the exterminated must fill out a page of testimony. If the Holocaust did not happen, are millions of people inventing lost loves ones and mourning mere fantasies?

This is exactly what Bradley Smith of the Committee for Open Debate on the Holocaust contends. More>>
