Holocaust Denier Carlos Porter Wants the Mass Extermination of Refugees

The Holocaust Denier Carlos Porter has demanded to "machine-gun" the refugees from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Africa entering Europe and "if that doesn’t work, how about napalm or poison gas". 

His full statement reads:
Machine-gun them all, and if that doesn’t work, how about napalm or poison gas? What the hell do we have an army for? Not to mention an Air Force? If you kill enough of them, the rest will quit coming and to hell with them. It wouldn’t even take very many, because they are beggars, cowards. Snivelling, whining, cry-babies. So it wouldn’t even take a lot of killing. They’ve had everything they wanted for 60 years. They wanted us to get out of our colonies and just hand them over; we did. They wrecked them, so now they want to move here. The results are already just the same. Let them rot in the mess they created. Machine-gun them on the beaches, drown them at sea, and starve them on land. What did we go to Viet Nam for? We’ve got the hardware. All just sitting there, doing nothing.
PS: What is the title of this “recent” French novel you mentioned? Has somebody updated The Camp of the Saints?
PPS: Deportation won’t work. Put them in camps in the desert or shoot them. There’s no other way. Fill out the paper work later.
(my emphasis)

The present European refugee crisis is not the issue of this blog, but at least some comment on this delusive attempt to explain Porter's democidal outburst seems appropriate. According to the author, "respected scholars like Carlos Porter throw[ing] all caution to the winds and openly begin[ing] to advocate extreme measures such as the mass extermination of groups widely perceived as dangerous enemies who threaten our very existence...can be likened to geiger counters or thermometers or blood pressure monitors that serve to alert the government to the fact that something is seriously wrong".

Carlos Porter is not a respected scholar. He may be respected by fringe groups, right wing extremists, racists and antisemites (as also the author of the article seems to be), but he is not within the academic community. He even denies Auschwitz tattoos, which is enough to demonstrate his corrupt "research". The fact that the European refugee crisis makes right wing extremist authors advocating mass murder is merely an indicator that something is seriously wrong with such people in general and Porter specifically.

Of course, there is also quite some dissonance that a Holocaust denier wants to mass murder refugees in Europe - just because he doesn't want them to stay and thinks deportation doesn't work-, yet keeps denying the Nazis exterminated the European Jews despite their excessive hate and perception of Jews as something extremely dangerous, that there was no place to deport them and that they had all the power and means to kill them.

That is the sickest thing I've read today.

This is very telling, isn't it?
It's amazing to me how deniers advocate this sort of thing but deny the Nazis did it.
It's very odd how the things they want to do they deny that the Nazis had the power to do.
I think most of them, deep down, admit to themselves that the Holocaust happened. Their desire to rehabilitate the image of a man dead for 70 years is what drives them to this public delusion.

What a loathsome animal he is. Exposes the face of denial.

Hans, the refugee crisis isn't the issue of this blog, but ... Nazi ethnic hatred is a blog topic and this kind of hatred is shared by the vast majority of the Deniers.

There's a connection between hatred of the Nazi period and this ethnic hatred rhetoric and extermination today. Porter shows us it. Congratulations on display the connection between author and his Nazi hate speech about these issues.

P.S. Congratulations to the blog team for the changing look/layout of the blog.

The religious roots of the Holocaust denial - you see the same concepts, the same minimization, etc. Donatists, Vaudoises, Paulicians and Bogomils (murdered also by Orthodox Inquisition), Cathars, Albigenses, Anabaptists, also today they are denied in their Christian nature and also the academy continue to label them with the slander of the Catholic propaganda of the Middle Age: "Manicheans". As the slander against the Jews in the Middle Age ("cutthroaters of Gentile babies" etc.) would still today be accepted by respected academicians when studying the Jewish communities of 1000 years ago:

"The Historical revision of the Inquisition is a historiographical process that started to emerge in the 1970s, with the opening of formerly closed archives, the development of new historical methodologies, and, in Spain, the death of the ruling dictator Francisco Franco in 1975. New works of historical revisionism changed our knowledge of the history of the Roman and Spanish Inquisitions.

Writers associated with this project share the view of Edward Peters, a prominent historian in the field, who states: "The Inquisition was an image assembled from a body of legends and myths which, between the sixteenth and the twentieth centuries, established the perceived character of inquisitorial tribunals and influenced all ensuing efforts to recover their historical reality."[1]"
