Truthers, Holocaust Deniers, Anti-Semites and anti-Americas all one in the same.
So the 9/11 accountability conference has dumped the director of the event, Eric Williams (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Barrett)
, due to his Holocaust denying ways: (h/t Screws Loose Change)
As a result of the controversy surrounding Eric D. Williams, he has stepped down from involvement in the 9/11 Accountability Conference. The 911 Accountability Conference does not support Holocaust denial, nor does the 9/11 Truth Movement. No other speaker listed here is known to have published works related to the Holocaust.
But guess who is still scheduled to speak both days of the conference? One Kevin Barrett, an associate lecturer at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He wrote the following in 2005 (http://www.oilempire.us/holocaust-denial.html)
: (h/t Screws Loose Change)
“However one feels about Green's perspective, and whatever the facts about WWII, it seems tragic that systematic Zionist Big Lies (we just want a homeland, not our own state; the Arabs started it; it was a land without people for a people without land; the Germans hated Jews for no reason whatsoever, just like the Arabs do now; the Palestinians left voluntarily in 1948 under orders of the Nazi Mufti of Jerusalem; most of the so-called Palestinians were not really from Palestine; the Arabs started the 1967 war; allegations of disproportionate Jewish influence in the American academic, media and financial sectors are false and anti-Semitic; the attack on the Liberty was a mistake; the Iraq war is about democracy or Saddam or US security or Peak Oil or anything except Israel, etc. etc.) have cast legitimate doubt upon ANYTHING Jews say about Jews and their recent history, including the Holocaust. As a rational person who is not a specialist in the subject of WWII, but who has studied the history of Zionist Big Lies vis-a-vis Palestine, I cannot possibly dismiss the arguments of people like Green, Irving, and even Zundel. And even if the 6-million-deliberately-murdered-for-purely-ethnic-reasons figure is correct--which it very well may be; I have grown agnostic on that after studying the Big Lies of Zionism-- I would still have to characterize the Holocaust as it is taught in the US as a hideously destructive myth. (A myth is a sacred, worldview-inaugurating story its users believe to be true.)
The upshot: nobody in the debate should be boycotted or vilified; nobody should be arrested for expressing honestly-held opinions; all voices should be heard; and the destructive myths and mind-numbing censorship imposed by Zionism must be swept clean so an honest assessment of history can emerge--at which point the Holocaust revisionists may very well be proven incorrect. And even if they are, they obviously should not be harassed or vilified, much less jailed!!
In the meantime, voices like Green and AFPN should be heard and subjected to rational criticism, not vilified or silenced. And the use of state power to enforce Holocaust Fundamentalism must end!”
(HT Flopping Aces) As usual, the guys and gals at Screws Loose Change have done an outstanding job of exposing the lunatics inside the Truther movement. Over the last week they have discovered some great stuff which I will breakdown for my readers.
First, Paula Zahn did a 10 minute segment on the 9/11 Truthers that shines the spotlight on the wackjob 9/11 Truthers and how they believe the Jews are behind 9/11.
ZAHN: We have all heard some absolutely incredible 9/11 conspiracy theories. The web of course is full of them. But tonight we're bringing one out that feeds on racism out in the open. We were absolutely shocked by one recent poll that found out that one in every three Americans believe the terror attacks were not the work of America's enemies, but some sort of inside job. And Deborah Feyerick found a smaller percentage who believe an even uglier theory.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This 9/11 attack was not by 19 Arabs. It was not by Muslims.
DEBORAH FEYERICK, CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): They talk about a Jewish plot.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Everywhere you look you find a Zionist agent.
FEYERICK: A conspiracy by Zionist Israeli intelligence or by Zionist moles in the Bush administration allegedly calling the shots in the Middle East. Websites, magazines, documentaries, radio programs, dozens of them disputing the fact that al Qaeda was behind the 9/11 attacks.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It was done by a group of Zionists.
FEYERICK: Are you suggesting that al Qaeda had nothing to do with it, that this was all part of a large conspiracy, Zionist or otherwise?
CHRISTOPHER BOLLYN, WRITER: Al Qaeda is in my opinion -- has been exploited. I question whether such a group even exists.
FEYERICK: Chicago writer Christopher Bollyn is one of the conspiracy theorists.
BOLLYN: I believe that there are Israeli elements that are connected to the Mossad, that are involved in this attack.
Whoa boy. Tin hats galore. Of course the Truthers are a bit upset about all this and are thinking up ways to counter-attack:
The first line of defense is to be very conscious about making any statements to the media that can be twisted to support the anti-Semitic accusation. Yes, this is self-censorship, but it is enlightened self-censorship and we are playing to win. Anyone invited into the media spotlight needs to be very disciplined about staying on message and those who allow themselves to be used to discredit the 9/11 Truth movement should find themselves out on the cold and lonely fringes immediately.
The best way to counter-attack would be to have a group called Jews for 9/11 Truth (don’t laugh) rain emails, letters and phone calls down on Zahn, King and CNN and other msm outlets. To my knowledge, no such group exists at this time. The next best thing we can do is contact Dr. Kevin Barrett and have him ask the prominent Jewish members of MUJCA (perhaps Sandra Lubarsky and/or Rabbi Michael Lerner) to do whatever they are willing to do to counter this unfounded and poisonous attack. I would love to see Rabbi Lerner go one-on-one with Larry King on this (I can dream, can’t I?).
Makes sense right? They all know the Jews did it but no one should say that to the media or your out. Get a few Jews to become their friends and ta-da! Problem fixed.
But even better then all this is the upcoming 9/11 Accountability Conference scheduled at the end of this month. They have lots of kooks lined up to keep all the minions in line, plus refreshments of course, and to top it off the whole show is organized and run by one Eric Williams, a holocaust denier:
Eric Williams does not want to be known as a Holocaust denier. After my interview with him for an item in this week’s Bird column titled “Deniers Conference,” in which I expose his views as written in his self-published tome The Puzzle of Auschwitz, he posted a free pdf of the book online at his site www.whatreallyisthematrix.com, along with a “disclaimer” stating that, “I am not a holocaust denier.” But in the same disclaimer, he writes, “…first, and foremost, it is [a] well known fact that the numbers of the 6 million Jews said have been killed in Concentration Camps have come down to around 1 million. ”
[...]Williams takes as gospel the findings of Fred A. Leuchter, a hero to neo-Nazis worldwide, whose so-called Leuchter Report on the use of the poison Zyklon B has been thoroughly discredited. Errol Morris’ acclaimed documentary Mr. Death: The Rise and Fall of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr. reveals Leuchter to be a fool, whose tests on the walls and bricks of Auschwitz were ultimately disowned even by the chemist who performed them.
Williams dismisses as “total nonsense” the gassing of Jews at Auschwitz. He refers to Auschwitz as a “reconstructed theme park,” and in a particularly repugnant chapter, states that he does not believe the so-called Operation Reinhard camps of Sobibor, Treblinka and Belzec ever existed. He sums up the chapter dealing with these camps with this rhetorical query:
Do I really need to continue to show that these Operation Reinhard Death Camps of Treblinka, Belzec and Sobibor were nothing more than crafted propaganda to ensure the momentum of an agenda?
And this is a guy who says he’s not a Holocaust denier.
The Conference website, which at one time listed Williams as the Conference Director, now lists him as the Vendor Coordinator who just happens to be on the schedule to speak for an hour. Since the story broke about this guy they have been pulling doubletime to distance themselves from him but as we all know, the web has a looooong memory. Pat over at Screws Loose Change found that Williams is a bit more involved then just dealing with the vendors:
Eric D. Williams Co-Director of the 911 Accountability Conference was a guest on Lone Lantern Radio, January 10th. Host Gary Franchi discussed guests, goals, direction and the purpose for the conference with Eric. Janette MacKinlay called in towards the end of the show to share her thoughts on the conference and the importance of accountability.
But now he is the Vendor Coordinator. Sure sure.
You think there will be any Jews speaking that conference now?
