US Rep. Liz Cheney says that "holocaust denial" comes from both the left & right

According to Liz Cheney, free speech goes against "freedom and justice and equality".
Predictably she never specifies how "holocaust denial" fits that description.
In fact, so called "holocaust denial" is a very real expression of "freedom and justice and equality".

However, it appears that she is fine with demonizing Germans and Euro-whites in general while rejecting science and rational thought.

She also says that it is found in "people both on the right in the Republican Party and by people on the left in the Democratic Party”.
Which to the logical person would indicate a good enough reason to check into Revisionist research.

Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., says both the GOP and the Democratic Party have white supremacists and anti-Semites.

Cheney, the House Republican Conference chairwoman, made her comments on Wednesday during a meeting with the Cheyenne Rotary Club, according to the Casper Star-Tribune.

“We’ve seen anti-Semitism, white supremacy, Holocaust denial, by people both on the right in the Republican Party and by people on the left in the Democratic Party,” Cheney said. “They can have no place in our in our public discourse. We have to be very clear that we stand for freedom and justice and equality and that we’re going to fight for those things.”

And she added: “I think that it’s very important for us, at the same time, to be clear that we reject some of the most outrageous, extreme, and indefensible positions that we’ve seen.”

Meanwhile, the Wyoming GOP voted earlier this month to censure Cheney, the third-ranked Republican in the House, for voting to impeach former President Donald Trump.

The state Republican Party’s measure called on Cheney to resign. The state party also plans to withhold any future funding from her.

But Cheney, in her Wednesday remarks, said: “The oath that I took can never bend to political pressure, to mob rule or to partisanship. And that’s what we should want from all of our elected officials. Because if you are unwilling to defend the Constitution, or if you’re only willing to defend it when it serves your political purpose, then the Constitution will not stand.”
If it can't happen as alleged, then it didn't.

Well, the first actual revisionist [that published work on the subject] was a French Socialist, part of the anti-German resistance movement in WWII, that claimed to have been physically assaulted by German soldiers (breaking his jaw) and then sent to a concentration camp.

So-called "Holocaust denial" is not inherently related to any political ideology, there are skeptics from virtually every part of the political spectrum.

Unlike many surnames of notable figures who are useful to jews, the Cheney surname doesn't have a jewish source, according to ancestry.com:

English: variant of Chesney. French: habitational name from a place in Yonne, which takes its name from a Romano-Gallic estate, Caniacum ‘estate of a man named Canius’, from the Roman personal name + the locative suffix -acum.

It would be interesting to see a deep ancestry check on the Cheney family. Noahides, at best.

It is doubtful that Cheney is Jewish. However, it is curious that he was also a member of the board of advisors of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) and then became its vice president. Why would a non-Jew hold such a position?

It makes sense for there to be non-Jews supporting all sorts of pro-Israel foreign policies, or pro-Jewish domestic policies, because it makes it seem like these movements are not entirely Jewish. It is very profitable for politicians to sell out to what is often referred to as "The Jewish Lobby" - in some cases it may be their only way to hold office at all.

I'm assuming she's related to Dick Cheney in which case having her on the board of this that and the other would be helpful.
