I’ve been off FB for a while due to family matters, but now I’m back, you jerks, and I’ll start my return with a scold. There’s been so much nonsense in the comments section of my website (and on various revisionist message boards) claiming “Cole won’t debate,” “Cole won’t debate.” Debate WHAT? Debate if the Treblinka survivors were often unreliable in their post-war testimony? No debate there. Of COURSE they were. If even half of what Konrad Morgen said regarding the insane perks the Treblinka permanent inmates received for leading hundreds of thousands of Jews to their death is true, the inmates had as much incentive as the guards to lie after the war. In other words, since no one’s testimony post-war can be fully trusted, the case for Treblinka, Sobibor, etc., must be made via contemporaneous documents. Period. And I made that case. Using zero post-war testimony.
You want to debate? Here’s the only thing I’ll debate. Give me an alternate theory regarding the fate of the over 2.4 million “departed” Jewish evacuees listed in the Korherr Report. Tell me where they went if not to their death. I have presented my theory, using only contemporaneous documents, that these Jews were not resettled in the Ostland, or sent to the Front, or anywhere else. It is now up to my wannabe “debaters” to present an alternate theory to account for the over 2.4 million “departed” Jews. Give me an alternate theory, and I’ll debate it. In other words, give me something TO debate. I’ll debate an alternate theory. I won’t debate just for the sake of it. As I told Little Mikey Shermer in 1994 when he wanted to have a debate “for show” in Skeptic Magazine, I don’t do performance art, and I don’t do Kabuki Theater. I only do “for real” debates. Give me an alternate theory to debate, or shut the f*ck up.
I really hope that skilled revisionist debaters who argue Treblinka wasn't an extermination camp will debate Cole and that Cole will actually debate them. It'd be interesting to hear these debates on internet podcasts.
