The scumbag nazi David Irving is going to be on a tour promoting his upcoming book about Himmler. We need to confront him wherever and whenever he appears! I found the information here  http://news.infoshop.org/article.php?story=20110305231905390
If you know anyone in some of those other cities as well, let them know so that that nazi scumbag doesn't get one peaceful night to propagandize and lie for money. If anyone is able to get addresses of these events, please send the information to groups that can use it and make it public! And please, if any of you can, start re-posting this on other websites like this one so that we can make sure there is a response in as many cities as possible.

"his knowledge of World War 2 is unparalleled" - Justice Gray 24.Mar.2011 18:14

The Black Rabbit of Inle

David Irving, the man described by the judge Sir Charles Gray; at the Iriving v. Lipstadt trial as such:

"My assessment is that, as a military historian, Irving has much to commend him. For his works of military history Irving has undertaken thorough and painstaking research into the archives. He has discovered and disclosed to historians and others many documents which, but for his efforts, might have remained unnoticed for years. It was plain from the way in which he conducted his case and dealt with a sustained and penetrating cross-examination that his knowledge of World War 2 is unparalleled. His mastery of the detail of the historical documents is remarkable. He is beyond question able and intelligent. He was invariably quick to spot the significance of documents which he had not previously seen. Moreover he writes his military history in a clear and vivid style. I accept the favourable assessment by Professor Watt and Sir John Keegan of the calibre of Irving's military history..."

Sounds like it will be a fantastic lecture.

I do hope you childish name-callers fail to disrupt it.

Antisemitism = The belief amongst some gentiles that Jews can be criticised like every other group.

You are right to fear him.
David irvings flagship book "Hitlers War" has the ability to make people realize that the ww2 story as it has been spoon fed to them most of there lives is a fairy tale..........the connection between this fairy tale and what is going on in the world today or should I say what is wrong with the world today cannot be over stated.
Some well meaning, misguided, people will join your crusade against truth,they are not to blame for their stupidity,but you, the people who finance this relentless machine,promoting lies,stifleing truth and debate, trying to control peoples minds while you commit murder around the world in the name of "peace"
you are truly evil

David Irving: Racist, Fascist, Anti-Semite 25.Mar.2011 07:39

get it straight

Loved the very selective quote from Justice Gray. By coincidence, that's the only positive paragraph in its entire 333 pages. Much more of it goes like this: "When account is taken of all the considerations set out in paragraphs 13.140 to 13.161 above, it appears to me that the correct and inevitable inference must be that for the most part the falsification of the historical record was deliberate and that Irving was motivated by a desire to present events in a manner consistent with his own ideological beliefs even if that involved distortion and manipulation of historical evidence."

Gray found that Irving was a liar, a racist, had ties to the far right including neo-Nazi organizations, and was motivated by his racial hatred of Jews. Read the whole thing to find out what a scam Holocaust denial is.

But Irving's linked this story on his webpage, so expect a bunch of no-necked stormtroopers to wander by and show us the intellectual bankruptcy at the heart of their little movement.

They keep telling themselves they're winning, even while they simultaneously admit that Irving can't announce the actual venue of the talk until right before the speech because otherwise the good people of the town come to break it up, or else the venue finds out it's hosting a meeting of neo-Nazis and cancels the event.

If That's Not Hate Speach I Don't Know What Is 25.Mar.2011 11:55

The title about "Scumbag David Irving" is a call to violent action - the kind usually attributed to extremists - and should be removed. These extremists, apparently, are fighting to preserve the Holocaust Lie.

David Irving on the other hand is always moderate in tone, in his discussion of historical issues as well as his dealings with the less moderate elemants of the opposing camp.

I have read carefully the papers of the Lipstadt trial and appeal - In fact, this is what turned me into a denier in 2005. - and it is clear from their decisions that the judges in both instances were motivated by something other than a search for truth. Irving was vastly outgunned by Lipstadt who had the full financial and "moral" backing of the opressive powers that be deciding-what's-history-wise.

Something else that's clear is that Irving as a historian makes Lipstadt look like a child - He is a Historian's Historian - to say nothing of Lipstadt's - and several others like Evans, for instance - willingness to lie in order to twist the story into something that it is not ...for purposes of public recognition and finacial gain.

One thing that particularly makes me sick is having to read Lipstadt's Emory University Holocaust Studies list of known defamatory lies about the Germans' actions during WWII that persists in spite of efforts to get it removed.

SUCH HATRED 25.Mar.2011 18:10

SR RYNBERG

What hatred towards a man who has done more to explain the facts about WW2 then all other authors put together.
I wonder how all these posters mouthing off with hate consider the plight of the Palestinians who have suffered at the hands 'of Jews for the past 60 years. Jews are not a special people over any other race and they have to understand that if they want the respect of other people, they have to give their respect as well.

If you knew anything about the David Irving libel trial or of the man himself, you would know that he is neither a Nazi or a National Socialist and happens to be an extremely refined gentleman. While critical of his opponents he is unlikely to stoop to the type of language you use which merely deflates and devalues your position.
Every historical work about world war two written between 1970 and 1990 is peppered with references and citations of Irving's work. His work on exposing the inconsistences in generally accepted tales of the Jewish holocaust and the WW2 era has raised awareness of the sinister fascist-like conspiracy to silence dissenters. Every time someone arranges some form of demonstartion against him, he sells several thousand more books, so you may wish to beg him for some commission.
When one sees this type of adolescent vendetta, one wonders exactly what people are so afraid of when Irving speaks


Here's the email he sent out about Portland 20.Apr.2011 15:16

Found this in my secret inbox:

I am back in the United States completing my biography of Heinrich Himmler, on which I have been working for eleven years. But I have also set aside time to meet my old friends, and my readers - to talk about Adolf Hitler and Himmler, this extraordinary man, his chief henchman, who created the Waffen SS, built a slave-based industrial empire, masterminded the Holocaust (whatever that was) and was already dead at age 44.
I am talking to small groups of my friends all round the USA this spring (and autumn). I have titled my talk "Hitler and Himmler: 44 years in 45 minutes." I have some unusual facts. I will have with me many of my increasingly popular books, including the rare earliest ones, which we are putting back into print, and some DVDs.
I am speaking privately on May 1 in Portland, on May 2 in Seattle and on May 3 in Spokane, and then after that driving east to meetings in Montana and North Dakota and Minnesota and back to Chicago. You should come after 7pm. As usual, we set a small registration fee for security reasons - I am sure you'll understand. For more details, and to register, click on whichever city is best for you, or go to www.irvingbooks.com (click EVENTS). Once you register, I will give you details on the location in good time. By the way: While you're on this bookstore, you'll see we're running a brief Spring Sale on most books, and I offer my book "Churchill's War", vol. ii: "Triumph in Adversity" (over 1,000 pages, many colour photos) at half price.
Please come, and bring family or friends you can vouch for; ask us about special payment arrangements in that case. You can bring children under 18 free. If you already have some books by me which you'd like me to autograph, bring them too. If you can't come, you can contribute to help my International Campaign for Real History. Please email me at  Focalp@aol.com or phone me tollfree on 877 442 7904 if you have questions, or if you are not given the venue for this meeting in time.
Yours sincerely,

David Irving
