The Eagle at American University to decide the fate of an 8-word CODOH text link

31 May 2011

Lindsey Anderson,
Editor in Chief
(202) 885-1402

Ms. Anderson:

The Eagle is running a text link of ours titled "From Lady Gaga to Saigon and Back Again." I expect that once it is "discovered" to be there you will receive complaints from those who do not want to encourage, or to even allow, a free exchange of ideas regarding the Holocaust question. You will be told that it is "hateful" and "insensitive" to do so.

I understand that those who will want you to suppress our ad will represent the academic community on your campus, as well as those in the private sector representing the vast resources of what Dr. Norman Finkelstein has called "The Holocaust Industry."

You will be pretty much alone on your campus if you stand with the ideal that at university the history of the Holocaust should be open to a routine examination in the same way that every other historical question is open to such examination. But if you do, you will set an example of journalistic integrity to all those around you, and to those "professionals" who work in the mainline press.

If you have any questions, or need any background, please feel free to write or call.

Thank you.

A Letter to Students at UC Los Angeles

[This letter was distributed to student organizataions and faculty at UC Los Angeles]

Lady GaGa, Michael Savage, and Your Ordinary Professor

What do Lady GaGa and Michael Savage have to do with the Holocaust question? I tried to give you access to the answer by placing a text link in The Daily Bruin, but The Bruin will not allow it. Why? The paper is unwilling to discuss its reasons. This is the suppressed link: http://tinyurl.com/3jbafm6

What do Michael Savage and your run-of-the-mill professor have in common? It's not pretty. I address the relationship with a YouTube video titled The Savage, the Academic, and the Brainwashed. You will find it here: http://tinyurl.com/3kmg8yg

With regard to your own paper, The Daily Bruin, I am going to guess (no one there will say) that the paper does not want to offend Jewish sensibilities by allowing questions to be asked, or even suggested, about the Holocaust issue. At the same time, The Bruin has no compunction about offending the sensibilities of those students who are Muslim.

If a Muslim student were to ask a professor at UCLA, any professor, to provide, with proof, the name of one person killed in a gas chamber at Auschwitz, she would have her sensibilities offended with a cruel maliciousness.

And then of course there are those students at UCLA, Jews, Muslims, whatever, who believe in the ideal of the right to a free exchange of ideas. Including asking questions about the Holocaust story. Is there one professor at UCLA who will stand with such students in the light of day?

With regard to history and to intellectual freedom, at UCLA has the academic made of himself the enemy of the student?

The Savage, the Academic and the Brain Washed

Michael (Banned-in-Britain) Savage and the American (I Believe in Intellectual Freedom) Academic are joined at the hip with regard to supporting a free press, a free exchange of ideas. They teach and they preach what tyrants the world over have taught from the beginning. The right to think will be held to be a universal right -- except in those cases where the State, or a commanding special interest, fear they have something to lose. With regard to free inquiry regarding the orthodox Holocaust story the American State, the Professorial Class, and the Holocaust Industry have already lost a good deal. Their honor.

The Gas Chamber of Sherlock Holmes

The Gas Chamber of
Sherlock Holmes And Other
Writings on the Holocaust,
Revisionism, and Historical Understanding

By Samuel Crowell

Review by Michael K. Smith

Reading Samuel Crowell's, "The Gas Chamber of Sherlock Holmes" is a little like stumbling across a rational mind in an insane asylum years after being taken hostage by the inmates.

Following prolonged immersion in clashing dogmas, the dispassionate use of evidence and logic to arrive at a sensible conclusion comes as a jolting but thoroughly pleasant surprise. And Crowell's modesty in stating that conclusion tentatively, knowing that genuinely rational inquiry will and should be superseded by later efforts, is an equally refreshing departure from polemical norms.

Drawing on establishment and revisionist authors, along with a careful scrutiny of German source documents, Crowell deftly evaluates contending claims arguing that Nazi "gas chambers" were (1) weapons of extermination (2) disinfection chambers (3) bomb shelters designed to protect against aerial gas attacks. Aligning eyewitness testimony with the material and documentary record, he sketches out the basis for a rational opinion, putting readers in a position to make their own judgments, without first requiring that they join in partisan warfare.

Thanks to this effort we no longer need choose between delusional orthodoxy and strident dissidence, but can simply weigh evidence. This should come as a relief to everyone, while hopefully expanding the number of readers who can move beyond ritual denunciation and actually take the gas chamber debate seriously

Wiesenthal Still Nabbing 'Em

Hungary's Wiesenthal Institute has put another war criminal on trial in Budapest.
In 2080, some Institute (still Wiesenthal, at this rate) will be getting Americans who were in uniform in Iraq and Afghanistan today put on trial for the many murders of civilians that undoubtedly are being committed in those places at this moment.
And in 2080, civilians will be getting murdered in probably several places (maybe America) where war, whether just or unjust, is being conducted (possibly looking for somebody named Osama, Obama, or Okama).
Trials for those killings will still be getting launched in 2149.
