Simon Wiesenthal Centre demands Croatia "ban books questioning established facts"

Postby Lamprecht » 1 week 2 days ago (Fri Jan 11, 2019 1:38 am)

We are told that the nazis were evil for burning books, which was largely symbolic and voluntary burning of communist propaganda. Of course, those same people who claim the nazis were evil for burning marxist texts in the 1930s simultaneously aim to silence all opinions and ideas they do not like in the present... pure hypocrisy. And although this is about Croatian, not Nazi, atrocities, they seem to be making it seem like part of the Holocaust.

Croatia Urged to Prohibit Denial of Ustasa Crimes

The Simon Wiesenthal Centre, a prominent Jewish human-rights organisation, urged the Croatian authorities to ban books questioning established facts about crimes committed by the WWII fascist Ustasa movement.

The Jerusalem-based Simon Wiesenthal Centre on Wednesday urged the Croatian authorities to ban works which deny crimes committed by the Ustasa regime in the Nazi-allied Independent State of Croatia state during World War II.

Efraim Zuroff from the Simon Wiesenthal Centre cited an event scheduled for January 16 in Zagreb to promote a new book, ‘The Jasenovac Lie Revealed’, organised by the Society for Research of the Threefold Jasenovac Camp, which questions whether the fascist Ustasa-run Jasenovac detention site was really a concentration camp during World War II.
...
He said that the crimes are corroborated by historical documents, the testimonies of survivors and the scholarly research of numerous reputable historians and that “works like ‘The Jasenovac Lie Revealed’ would immediately be banned in Germany and Austria and rightfully so”.
...
“As a member of IHRA [the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance], Croatia should take all possible steps to prevent Holocaust denial and distortion,” said Mark Weitzman of the Wiesenthal Centre, a former head of the IHRA’s Committee on Antisemitism and Holocaust Denial.

If you check google news you will see a new article every day on why we need to ban "anti-semitism" and especially "holocaust denial" from social media websites like twitter and facebook (where denying the holocaust is not actually against the rules). If these crimes are proven beyond all reasonable doubt, why censor? Only liars demand censorship!

They merely keep repeating what Revisionist scholars have shown to be ridiculous lies.
It's all part of their Big Lie approach which relies on something being believed after it is repeated over & over again.

I call it bluff.
Shysters like Efraim Zuroff and Mark Weitzman from the Simon Wiesenthal Centre, who make big bucks by repeating their lies while promoting false Jew supremacism, count on people not bothering to rationally, scientifically examine their impossible claims.

It's a sign of their arrogance and stupidity that they fail to realize that their demands of censorship and arrests of people who engage in free speech are making their scam more obvious to an increasing number of people.

Truth welcomes free speech.

The tide is turning.

Indeed, that was a big "red flag" for me: learning that it's illegal to "deny the holocaust" which, originally, I was a true believer of and figured deniers were in the same boat as flat earthers, evolution deniers, creationists, etc. But nobody gets arrested for that, and I didn't buy the claim "If people deny the holocaust, they're justifying the murder of jews [which they claim never occurred]" :roll:

Holocaust denial laws are a liability to the Holocaust Industry, a fender bender if you will.

Holocaust denial laws don't even work. All they do is take revisionism underground, and make revisionism more and more extreme, because Holocaust deniers don't talk with believers of the official narrative, which would otherwise 'mellow' revisionists.

Plus, the 95% of sheeple out there who assume that people deny the Holocaust want dead Jews (even though they are angry that 6,000,000 Jews were not killed - :roll: ) don't even care about Holocaust deniers. They just assume them to be irrelevant and move on with their lives.

So when they see them prosecuted, it surprises them that they are prosecuted for saying 'offensive' words, and makes them want to listen to their illegal words, words to which they otherwise wouldn't have cared to listen, had there not been laws.

Certainly Holocaust denial laws will make future generations laugh at our stupidity.
If your beliefs cannot stand up to your own sincere scrutiny and skeptical evaluation, they are not worth having.
