The ultimate truth is this. It doesnt matter how much evidence you have against a holocaust denier because they are not actually interested in history at all. Or the truth. They are only interested in the politics of it.


What is/are "the politics" of Holocaust "denial"?

If those who push the "Holocaust" story are only interested in truth, why imprison those who publicly question it?
What "politics of [denial]" are the jewish revisionists interested in?

I don't understand it at all.

Germar Rudolf:
"To everyone who has ever suspected that revisionists are motivated by a desire to whitewash National Socialism, or restore the acceptability of right-wing political systems, or assist in a breakthrough of Nationalism, I would like to say the following:

While researching historical events, our highest goal must be at all times to discover how it actually was--as the 19th century German historian Leopold Ranke maintained. Historians should not place research in the service of making criminal accusations against, for example, Genghis Khan and the Mongol hordes, nor to whitewash any of their wrong-doings. Anybody insisting that research be barred from exonerating Genghis Khan of criminal accusations would be the object of ridicule and would be subject to the suspicion that he was, in fact, acting out of political motives. If this were not so, why would anyone insist that our historical view of Genghis Khan forever be defined solely by Khan's victims and enemies?

The same reasoning applies to Hitler and the Third Reich. Both revisionists and their adversaries are entitled to their political views. The accusation that revisionists are only interested in exonerating National Socialism and that such an effort is reprehensible or even criminal, is a boomerang: This accusation has as a prerequisite that it is deemed unacceptable to partially exonerate National Socialism historically, and by so doing, always also morally. But by declaring any hypothetical exoneration based on possible facts as unacceptable, one admits openly not to be interested in the quest for the truth, but in incriminating National Socialism historically and morally under any circumstances and at all costs. And the motivation behind this can only be political. Hence, those accusing revisionists to misuse their research for political ends have themselves been proven guilty of exactly this offense. It is therefore not necessarily the revisionists who are guided by political motives--though quite a few of them certainly are--but with absolute certainty all those who accuse others of attempting to somehow historically exonerate a political system which has long since disappeared.

As a consequence, our research must never be concerned with the possible 'moral' spin-off effects of our findings in relation to politicians or regimes of the past, but solely with the facts. Anyone who argues the opposite does not understand scientific research and should not presume to condemn others on the basis of authentic research."
"There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments, and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance -- that principle is contempt prior to investigation."
— Herbert Spencer

When people get emotionally entwined in the holocaust being an event without parallel and without question they are hell bent on jewish suffering, and me thinks this bloke is a foaming at the mouth zionist who thinks the jews are superior to anyone else. The politics bit comes in when he would be certain we are all Hitler loving and Hitler apologists and far right knuckle draggers to boot. He would think that the politics of the holocaust would thus mean that because we deny the mainstream story of the holocaust we are also jew haters, israel haters blah blah blah.

He couldn't be more wrong.

I have met a number of serious revisionists in the past five years and would say most of them are left of centre socialists, some jewish and some like me are centre right. I support the right of israel to exist and thus am not anti zionism.

What I am always struck by with these ardent exterminationists is that despite logic, forensics and jolly good science they seem to positively want the destruction of jews to have happened and almost revel in it and their subsequent suffering and demands.
