Jews / vermin

While you're reading this illuminating CODOH thread, keep in mind that "revisionism" has nothing to do with antisemitism. Well, at least according to "revisionists" themselves.

Update: Also see this.

It just shows how primitive these people are.

I think Raphael Ezekiel is right...these guys do not deny the Holocaust. They're really obsessed by it. These anti-Semites want it to happen, and they want to be connected to it, so they can believe they are part of and heir to an organization so powerful and dominant that it could kill millions of people without batting an eye. That's why they go on about it, even in denying it.

After all, the harsh reality for life for most neo-Nazis and anti-Semites is thatthey spend their lives shunned and marginalized, on the fringes of society, in a state of paranoia against each other, and oftentimes ending up in prison as the inmate, instead of as the commandant. The closest they come to power is when the judge is sentencing them.

What the neo-Nazis and anti-Semites want to do is not deny the Holocaust as such, but change the narrative from being the horrific mass murder and extermination of millions of innocent people, into being what the Nazis saw it as: a judicial cleansing of a subhuman and conspiratorial race, accomplished by a brave order of Teutonic Aryan knights. They want Auschwitz to be a monument to the SS, not the Jews.

It is supposed to be a dilemma, a Scylla and Charybdis, as Nick put it, of not knowing whether to Deny the Holocaust or to celebrate it and call for "Six Million More."

This dilemma is a rather forced one in my opinion. A real Nazi, whether pro-Revisionist or not, would see this paradox as an alien worldview in its own right--that extermination pro or con is a quintessentially "Jewish" way of looking at the world, a "non-Aryan" eschatology.
