McCormick Prof. Arthur Butz has, after many years of total obscurity in anything but the world of Holocaust deniers, once again grabbed headlines.
Now Butz claims in the pages of The Daily that the reason people are “reluctant to consider the validity” of Holocaust denial is “fear.” Butz would have you believe that legal obstacles have made impossible for deniers to speak their piece. Rot.

Webmaster note: With perfect timing (and the attention to detail for which exterminationists are famous), Deborah “No Debate with Revisionists” Lipstadt claims there are no legal ramifications to espousing the revisionist position, on the same day that her old adversary David Irving is sentenced to three years for “denial.” However, no doubt Fred Leuchter, Robert Faurisson, Ernst Zundel, Germar Rudolf, Fredrick Toben, Marc Lemire, and dozens of other revisionists will be happy to learn that the years they’ve spent in court and/or in jail have nothing to do with their position on the Holocaust myth.
