Carolyn confronts the theory put out by Veronica Clark, based partly on Clark's reading of Adolf Hitler's "Platterhof Speech," that Germans are a mixed-race people.

  • August 1st was the 70th Anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, being commemorated by the Federal Republic of Germany as much as in Poland;
  • Clark claims herself to be German even though only 5% biologically German;
  • Clark received her Master's degree in military history from an online university;
  • The talk to military officers at Platterhof in May 1944 was an effort by Hitler to instill the belief that a military victory was still possible if the necessary toughness could be demonstrated; weakness meant defeat;
  • Hitler calls the Nordic the most valuable 'race nuclei' in the German people, along with other racial nuclei, which are sometimes called just 'races';
  • Clark says German people's "bastardization" actually makes them more capable than more pure Northern races;
  • Hitler was adamant that the presence and activity of Jews is the main factor in the ruin of societies;
  • Emphasis on the importance of leadership, the hunt for leaders, and the demands made on leaders - abandonment of leadership being cowardice;
  • The talk about race plays a small part in this speech and is not particularly important to the overall message.

Faurisson comments on David Cole's antics

David Cole is back

July 28, 2014

David Cole, an American Jew born in 1968, once took to revisionism but as an amateur and without much concern for research or accuracy. Some of his fellow Jews were quick to make life hard for him and, finally, to treat him like a Palestinian. He took fright, signed a retraction, then decided to change his name and his existence. 

So it was that, concealing his past and taking on the identity of “David Stein”, he went and offered his services to his Republican friends in Los Angeles as an organiser of gatherings and parties. As fine a way as any to earn a good living and make a spectacle of oneself. 

Later, at a third stage, he put an end to his existence of professional reveller to reappear under his original name and publish a book in which he claims to reveal today the ignominy of revisionists like that Faurisson who, after having amiably welcomed him, lost no time in describing him as a prankster. Cole’s book is entitled Republican Party Animal

The Heretics' Hour: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Carolyn Yeager discusses  Vladimir Putin (the Bad), Revisionist Robert Faurisson (the Good) and Revisionist David Cole (the Ugly), whose Treblinka theories  will be critiqued more carefully, using research of Juergen Graf, along with Thomas Kues and Carlo Mattogno (the Good). Some highlights:

  • Putin is lying about his government's connection with the MH17 disaster and will not get away with it;
  • Why have David Cole, Mark Weber and David Irving all regressed to embrace the "limited gassings" position?
  • Both Juergen Graf and Eric Hunt have answered David Cole's superficial criticism of them with ease and aplomb;
  • Treblinka was the smallest of the "Aktion Reinhardt" camps but allegedly gassed and burned to ashes the largest number of bodies - over 800,000 of them - without a crematorium!
  • Robert Faurisson investigated Treblinka in 1988 and discovered it was a wide-open place in 1942-43 that all local people knew about and could see everyday;
  • Faurisson's brilliant work has been the impetus for Revisionism's greatest advances, which forced the establishment to resort to the force of law.

Fredrick Töben joins Carolyn in the 2nd hour as she looks at the current controversy surrounding David Cole and his Treblinka article which was posted on the Feral House Facebook page. Among the points covered:

  • Why are articles favorable to David Cole published at White Nationalist websites?
  • The need among White people to believe in "the good Jew" is what allows the David Coles to prosper within the Revisionist movement and within White society itself;
  • Cole presents only two documents as complete proof for his gassing claims, disregarding lack of physical evidence;
  • Cole has shown himself capable of biting criticism of every revisionist who differs with him or who has questioned his conclusions;
  • Dr. Töben is bothered by Cole's reliance on a rabbi, Dr. Carlos Huerta, as an advisor for his revisionist work;
  • Can we now have the all out, much-needed debate over the Aktion Reinhardt "extermination" camps free of the fear of being seen as anti-Jewish?
  • Carl Nordling recommends the scientific method in his article "Scientists against Science" on page 28.

Battle of the Architects, Part 4

The following is something of a masterpiece of satiric wit from Giesler. -cy

The Column Saint

 From Hermann Giesler’s memoir Ein Anderer Hitler
Der Säulenheilige, pages 355-360
1977 edition, Druffel-Verlag

Translated byWilhelm Kriessmann and Carolyn Yeager

In the year 113 the Roman senate erected a gigantic column for the emperor and military leader Trajan. (Shown right) On the capital of the column stood the gilded statue of the honored.

The art historian Bruhns writes ”Used to gigantism and always striving to exceed, Rome created that form of eternal triumph which then did mankind not less convince of its greater impression than the older kind of triumphal arch, now of a lesser rank. As the colossal column expresses the idea of “height” exceptionally well, it can also be used very well for the adoration of the “highest.” Antoninus Pius and Marcus Aurelius were given similar columns in Rome. Arcadius got his at the new capital Constantinople.

When Europe during the Napoleon era felt itself specially close to Rome’s greatness, it presented the new emperor with the Vendome column in Paris—and his conqueror, Alexander of Russia, a second one in Petersburg.”

The emerging Christianity overthrew the images of antique greatness and now paid homage to its believers on imposing columns. After the final decline of the ancient dignities around the 4th and 5th centuries, ascetic Christians requested the top of the Roman columns as pleasing to God. The best known among them was Symion Stylites from Aleppo. Those ascetics and penitents, called stylites or “Säulenheilige (column saints), strove to increase their ranking  by self-elevation.

Fredrick Toben's review of David Cole's "bad boy" book

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2014-07-22 14:29

Fredrick Töben reviews David Cole’s book:
Republican Party Animal: The “Bad Boy of Holocaust History” blows the lid off Hollywood’s secret right-wing underground

Through an internal monologue, the three-page introduction serves to set the scene of a self-declared reluctant author giving an interview to a late-arriving reporter of the JTA – Jewish Telegraph Agency. As he sits in a bar awaiting the reporter’s arrival he reflects upon his own alcoholism and how he had experienced social condemnation because of his Revisionist views, which made him worse than “pedophile Hitler strangling a puppy”.

When I read this sentence I wondered what kind of mindset – only a sick mind – could come up with such an expression, which is fully in tune with the obscenities one finds in the racist-imbued Talmud.

And again I recall German philosopher Martin Heidegger’s words of wisdom that blows Judaism’s “racist-cover”, when he states: “The Jews, with their marked gift for calculating, live, already for the longest time, according to the principle of race, which is why they are resisting its consistent application with utmost violence.”

Carolyn Yeager covers a number of items, issues and individuals that have captured her attention this week, all related to the theme of traitors.

  • Documents reveal parties responsible for causing WWI;

  • Traitors at the Federal Reserve;

  • Putin in denial, shades of Katyn;

  • More on Albert Speer's jew-friendly "remorse";

  • David Cole-Stein can't avoid the scrutiny of Robert Faurisson.

Will Putin follow Stalin's Katyn strategy on the airline shoot-down?

In dealing with the tragedy of the downed Malaysian airliner MH17, the leader of the Russian Federation, President Vladimir Putin is behaving more and more like a throwback to Josef Stalin and his cover-up of the Katyn massacre. It was Stalin who approved the murder of thousands of Polish nationals in 1940, including military officers, dumping their bodies in mass graves hidden from view in the Katyn Forest near Smolensk, Russia.

If the Wehrmacht had not invaded Russia in Operation Barbarossa in June 1941, the evidence of this massacre would never have been found. Here is a recount of how the crime was discovered, taken from Wikipedia:

The government of National-Socialist Germany announced the discovery of mass graves in the Katyn Forest in 1943. When the London-based  Polish government-in-exile asked for an investigation by the International Red Cross, Stalin immediately severed diplomatic relations with it. The Soviet Union claimed the victims had been murdered by the Nazis, and continued to deny responsibility for the massacres until 1990, when it officially acknowledged and condemned the perpetration of the killings by the NKVD, as well as the subsequent cover-up by the Soviet government.
