JLAD Prove Me Wrong:
Anyone can be sued.
My point exactly. So why are some people sued, like the IHR, the author mentioned above, and others, yet Yeager and Gerdes do not get sued? It's obviously not what they're saying, but how they are saying it.
I guess what I'm trying to get at hear is: What makes their strategy successful?
After all, if the IHR was forced to do this:
4. The letter of apology addressed the “suffering” some Jews said they experienced around the $50,000 award offer. It did not apologize for revisionist theory or revisionist literature in any way.
Following is the complete text of the letter our lawyers signed:
Each of the answering defendants do hereby officially and formally apologize to Mr. Mel Mermelstein, a survivor of Auschwitz-Birkenau and Buchenwald, and all other survivors of Auschwitz for the pain, anguish, and suffering he and all other Auschwitz survivors have sustained relating to the $50,000 reward offer for proof that ‘Jews were gassed in gas chambers at Auschwitz’."
Then why hasn't nafcash.com been sued for offering this:
THE HOLOCAUST ARCHAEOLOGY HOAX CHALLENGE
$100,000.00 REWARD For proving - just 1 / 1,000 of 1% - of the criminally fraudulent buried remains allegationshttp://www.nafcash.com/
The nafcash.com site also makes specific accusations against Michael Shermer:
Enter the spurious “skeptic” - Even though the orthodox tall-tales about the alleged Belzec, Chelmno, Ponary, Sobibor and Treblinka II “holocausts” are classic big-lies replete with absurd physical impossibilities, the charlatan MICHAEL SHERMER wants you to believe the fraudulent - cognitive illusion - that they have actually been scientifically proven to be true. To illustrate the immoral machinations that Shermer has gone through in support of this guise, look at these quotes from his deluding book - Denying History: “The purpose of this book is to… show precisely, with solid evidence… how historians know that it happened as it did… we must obey the rules of reason and apply the tools of science… This process is practiced by all scientists… historical scientists, geologists, paleontologists and archaeologists, to prove that anything in the past happened… We must review the physical evidence.”
Shermer furthers this glaringly transparent charade with these additional duplicitous claims in - Denying History: “To debunk the deniers, can’t we just go there and see for ourselves? The answer, of course, is “yes.” We can no longer ignore the deniers… We cannot remain silent anymore. It’s time to respond… We went to Europe to conduct research at… Treblinka, Sobibor, Belzec… We wanted to see for ourselves just what evidence there is at the camps and to take the opportunity to examine firsthand the claims… How is it that so much physical evidence can come to be doubted?”
WHAT PHYSICAL EVIDENCE? - Shermer is intentionally ignoring the inconvenient fact that, over the years, there have been no less than five claimed so-called “crime scene investigations” of Treblinka II, and a number of claimed investigations at the other four sites as well - yet to date, it can still be categorically stated that; archaeologists / forensic investigators have not proven the existence of even one mass grave at Belzec, Chelmno, Ponary, Sobibor or Treblinka II that contains so-much-as - 1 / 1,000 of 1% - of the alleged buried remains - NOT ONE!
Ironically, Michael Shermer has unwittingly revealed who the real deniers / liars are, as his unethical dissimulation turned out to be an easily documented epic FAIL: “Shermer’s Denying History is… an implicit denial of the existence of opposing facts, evidence and arguments.… he cannot seriously claim to be a scholar. He is an ignorant fool at best. Or else he knows what he is omitting, and then he is merely a liar, an obfuscator and a fraud.”
So now you know how invested Shermer is in this hoax and why he shamelessly ignores the fact that his deceitful allegations / insinuations have been thoroughly DEBUNKED: “That is the only way to understand this subject. It has to be studied carefully. If you slow down and look at the logic, his illusion doesn’t work. Shermer has set up his argument in such a way that the ordinary methods of logic do not apply… This is like a shell game: you have to watch what he’s doing… The Shermer principle is not logic… The jumping together phenomenon is how illusionists produce their illusions.”
So why is Shermer so afraid of suing Mr. Gerdes?
