The point is that perhaps our main focus should be on countering this refusal to listen, this knee-jerk ad-hominen attack against revisionists.
We can then start to develop strategies to induce people to see their own irrationality and bigotry - break them out of the cozy self-righteousness with which they dismiss revisionism.
I know most dissenters try to be very nice with people and try to appeal to their reason. perhaps many don't appreciate just how unreasonable most people have become. the "Age of Reason" is long gone and you rarely see that phrase in print or media any more.
I personally think a more aggressive approach is better. We must try to make people aware of their accountability in dismissing, demonizing and ostracizing those who (for the most part) are only expressing their reasoned opinion based on their examination of the evidence, and that in doing so they are helping to attack the freedom of expression that most claim to hold dear.
As an example, I've knocked together a little flyer that I will be posting in public places. I would value any comments or suggestions for this flyer and anyone is of course welcome to print it.
So, you think that "holocaust deniers" are evil racist nazis, right?
Have you ever asked yourself why you think that? Of course you haven't.
Have you ever spent a single minute reading alternative, revisionist sources of information about the so-called holocaust? Of course you haven't.
Holocaust revisionists were recently called "bigots" by the UN secretary general. A bigot is someone who refuses to consider or examine an "inconvenient" claim.
Examining inconvenient and unpopular information is exactly what holocaust revisionists do. They are the opposite of bigots.
YOU are the bigot.
Why is it that the mass-media tells us that we should never debate or discuss the truth of the alleged holocaust?
Why are there now draconian laws in many European countries which criminalize questioning the holocaust and currently incarcerate hundreds of such people including some of the most famous such as Germar Rudolph and Ernst Zundel?
Why do governments, the media and "humanitarian" organizations like Amnesty International completely ignore these vile attacks on freedom of expression?
You can swallow whole the silly reasons hammered out by the mass media, like "defaming the memory of the dead". But don't you think you should consider the most obvious reason?
No you don't, because you are a coward and a mindless conformist, basking in the self-righteousness of condemning "evil nazis", secure in the knowledge that your "radical" attitude carries no risk at all. The true radicals and brave souls are those who dare to speak out against a sick lie that is protected by severe punishment, both legal and illegal.
For those few who still have minds of their own, check out these excellent sources:
codoh.com - the archives, a huge library of well-referenced articles, books and multi-media; and the live forum - have your say, engage in the forbidden practice of debating the holocaust!
ihr.org - huge archive of material
