Why revisionism is an historical necessity

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2017-12-19 23:35

THIS ARTICLE WAS FIRST PUBLISHED IN THE JOURNAL LIBERATION IN 1958, during the Cold War. Written twelve years after the end of WWII, it is still necessary reading today. I am posting the entire long article here because I think every word is valuable. I have taken the liberty of bolding some words and sentences that I think are particularly valuable. During this holiday season, take some time to read it, not necessarily all in one sitting. You will be immeasurably enriched and informed by it.

Harry Elmer Barnes (1889-1968) is pictured above in a portrait created for The Barnes Review magazine. He was one of the most influential American scholars of the twentieth century.

Revisionism and the Promotion of Peace

By Harry Elmer Barnes, 1958

During the last forty years or so [since 1918 -cy], revisionism has become a fighting term. To so-called revisionists, it implies an honest search for historical truth and the discrediting of misleading myths that are a barrier to peace and goodwill among nations. In the minds of anti-revisionists, the term savors of malice, vindictiveness, and an unholy desire to smear the saviors of mankind.

Britain's 100 year war against Germany documented

By Carolyn Yeager

THIS IS THE GREATEST 'OPEN SECRET' OF OUR TIME. The facts and the motivation are in plain sight, documented in sufficient detail, but the powers-that-be direct us to look the other way.

I have written and spoken in this space many times about the responsibility of the British for bringing about the wars that came to be called World War I and World War II—including an interview with Nick Kollerstrom about his wonderful little book of only 100 pages, How Britain Initiated Both World Wars. Nick goes as far back as 1905 when Edward Grey (shown left) first became British foreign secretary but does not mention the Saturday Review publications which are quoted here from 1895, 1896 and 1897.

The knowledge we gain from this article is that WWII was not carried on by Britain to destroy the threat of Adolf Hitler and “Nazism”, which clearly was no threat to Britain, but to destroy a trade and financial competitor—an idea carried over from WWI and earlier.

Student's feeling of sadness at German Stalingrad soldier's grave sets off furor in Russia

IN LIGHT OF MY PREVIOUS POST: Advice-giving White men who think Germans should get off their knees and stand up to the world again should actually be asking the rest of the world to lay off the “Nazis” instead. And do they? It's they, too, who won't stop contributing to the unfair defilement of Germany's past.

An illustration of this cropped up when a Russian high school student, part of a joint German-Russian school project on the fates of military prisoners on both sides in WWII, spoke in the German Bundestag last Sunday on the National Day of Mourning. There were three German students from Kassel and three Russian from Novy Urengoy (in Siberia).

Getting public statements correct

EVERYWHERE I AM READING THAT Alexander Gauland (above), a leader of the Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) party in Germany, has said that Germany should be proud of what its military did in WWII. This gives quite a different impression than what Gauland actually said, which was that he specified 'soldiers'.

A current article by a Jew for the Australia Israel & Jewish Affairs Council is one of the few who gets it right and actually uses quotes rather than paraphrasing and twisting the meaning of what Gauland said. Shmuel Levin writes:

Kevin MacDonald on record saying whether the Holocaust actually happened is “not important”

By Carolyn Yeager

KEVIN MACDONALD RECENTLY PARTICIPATED IN a videocast of “Torah Talk” with Luke Ford, a non-Jewish student of Torah and Talmud, and two young friends or students of his. It lasted one hour and 50 minutes and resulted in some interesting insights into Kevin's limitations as a leading White Nationalist voice.

MacDonald was taken by surprise with the first question asked of him: What are your thoughts about holocaust revisionism?

“Yeah, um, I guess I'm not, uh, I've never had any sympathy really, before – I, I haven't seen, I haven't seen anything that I would really, you know, convince me. And I have – frankly, I haven't dealt into it very much. My view is that it's not important for what I'm doing and I don't think it's really important – I, I think what's really important is the culture of the holocaust, you know how it's taught in school, how it's used to defend Israel, and it's used as a weapon against people who oppose immigration, and all those things – ah I think those are very important things to discuss. So whether it actually happened, exactly (… slurs some words] and all that is something that I don't think uh is possible to even go there anymore, is just … just uh … third rail.”

Shameless Poles use falsified history to demand more money from hard-working Germans

Published by carolyn on Thu, 2017-08-03 18:54

Witold Pilecki is falsely promoted by the Poles as a great hero of the holocaust. They claim that as a member of the underground Home Army, he “volunteered” to be imprisoned in Auschwitz to “gather intelligence.” His detailed Witold's Report included that "By March 1943 the number of people gassed on arrival reached 1.5 million," a complete lie among other lies. After surviving 2 ½ years in Auschwitz and escaping, Pilecki was executed by the Soviets in 1948. He told his wife, “Auschwitz compared to them was just a trifle.”

THE POLES ARE ONCE AGAIN CONJURING UP DEMANDS for more financial “reparations” from Germany stemming from WWII. An analysis being prepared in the Polish parliament's research office is expected to be ready by August 11, according to a Law and Justice party lawmaker. Here are what some Polish officials are saying:

Jaroslaw Kaczynski, leader of the conservative ruling Law and Justice party (PiS): “The Polish government is preparing itself for a historical counteroffensive. We are talking here about huge sums, and also about the fact that Germany for many years refused to take responsibility for World War II.”

Copernicus was German, not Polish

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2017-07-08 12:30

Nicolaus Copernicus, a Prussian, placed the sun instead of the earth in the center of the solar system in 1542, making a monumental contribution to world scientific knowledge. Is this a Polish face? No, it is a Germanic face.


By Carolyn Yeager

US PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP WAS IN POLAND ON THURSDAY, JULY 6 and got his history wrong again. He did it in Jerusalem in May and now he's done it again ... in order to cater to post-WWII historical distortions. In Warsaw, speaking to thousands, he said:

Despite every effort to transform you, oppress you, or destroy you, you endured and overcame. You are the proud nation of Copernicus — think of that — Chopin, Saint John Paul II. Poland is a land of great heroes. And you are a people who know the true value of what you defend.

Poland has been claiming Copernicus as a Polish son for a long time because, well, he did live in the territory called the Kingdom of Poland during most of his life. He was born in German Silesia, as was his father and mother before him. He grew up speaking German – it was his native language. He did all of his work and correspondence in Latin and German, none in Polish. However, it is said he could also speak Polish, Italian and Greek.

Trump goes off the rails in fervent support of false Jewish narrative

The US Capitol Rotunda was filled with 'the Jewish people' on Tuesday to commemorate the Six Million, parade flags, light candles, and listen to a speech by the President of the United States.


By Carolyn Yeager

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SPOKE FOR A FULL 15 MINUTES at the annual Yom Ha'Shoah remembrance ceremony at the US Capitol Rotunda on Tuesday, and then sat down and applauded 'holocaust survivors' who lighted candles, and Hebrew singers until the boring tribute to Jews - and only to Jews - was over and he was allowed to leave. That signalled the end of the televised event. Trump's speech included these shocking words:

Those who deny the Holocaust are an accomplice to this horrible evil and we'll never be silent - we just won't - we will never, ever be silent in the face of evil again." (applause)

Poland moves forward with refocusing history on Polish heroism and victimhood

The Museum of Second World War in Gdansk, Poland which opened on March 23, 2017 in the midst of controversy.


By Carolyn Yeager

POLAND IS MERGING TWO MUSEUMS OF HISTORY INTO ONE – the newly opened World War II Museum in Gdansk with another yet-to-be-established state-sanctioned institution that, when it opens, will be focused solely on Polish heroism during the Nazi occupation of Poland.

The current culture minister under the ruling Law and Justice Party, Piotr Glinski, has been pushing for a merger with a museum that currently exists only on paper, and is dedicated to the Battle of Westerplatte. In November 2016, the New York Times quoted Glinski saying that focusing on the September 1939 battle would better represent “heroic Polish self-defense,” and that the museum in the works failed to put “enough stress on the Polish point of view.”
