Congratulations to VT Senior Editor Gordon Duff, who made the Zio-cons’ enemies list of “America’s top ten anti-Semites.” Though I’m happy for Gordon, I’m also a little jealous. So I wrote the following letter:
Dear David Hornik,
I am writing to protest my exclusion from your Top Ten Anti-Semites list. These days, if you aren’t being called an anti-Semite, you aren’t working hard enough for truth and justice. Since I like to think of myself as working hard for truth and justice, being left off your list is a real slap-down.
It is especially honorable to be called an anti-Semite by the worst sort of ultra-Likudnik neocon scum. I assume that means you, since your zio-astroturf propaganda website hosts people like Michael Ledeen, the Operation Gladio mass murder and 9/11 suspect whose political philosophy is “enter into evil.”
What did I do – or didn’t I do – to be left off your list of courageous truth-tellers? (OK, calling Thomas Friedman a “courageous truth-teller” may be a bit of a stretch.)
Here is your top ten list, in order:
#1. Louis Farrakhan
#3. Thomas Friedman
#4. Ali Abunimah
#5. Ron Paul
#6. Pat Buchanan
#7. David Duke
#8. John Mearsheimer
#9. Willis Carto
#10. Gordon Duff
I admit that these are all big-name people with major accomplishments under their belts. I guess I have some serious work to do before I can join their august company.
So what would I have to do to make the list? If I were to, say, read five more books on the Nazi holocaust, and continue to discover more information casting doubt on the official narrative, would you put me on your top ten list? Reading only five books,* along with several papers, has already shaken my faith in the existence of mass human gas chambers, an official extermination order and program, and the figure of six million Jewish deaths. My willingness to think critically about historiography, and investigate before I jump to conclusions, ought to qualify me as an anti-Semite, right?
I am also perfectly willing to express even more disgust for Israel than I already have. If there are any uncomplimentary adjectives I have not yet hurled in the general direction of the Zionist entity, just let me know and I will hurl them forthwith.
Honestly, I will do almost ANYTHING to get on your list. I’ll get a swastika tattooed on my big toe. Wipe with the Israeli flag and post it on youtube. Mud-wrestle Abe Foxman. You name it, I’ll do it.
Finally, if you are still in doubt as to my anti-Semitic credentials, I can tell you one last thing: I am pretty sure that I do not like gifelte fish. Though I have never eaten a gifelte fish, I know that I do not like the Norwegian version, which is called lutefisk, and which I have never eaten either, and have no intention of ever eating. (Feel free to add me to your list of the top ten anti-Norwegian bigots, if you ever get around to making one.)
*The five books: Denying History by Shermer and Grobman; Debating the Holocaust by Thomas Dalton; Denying the Holocaust by Deborah Lipstadt; Hitler’s War by David Irving; and Zionism in the Age of Dictators by Lenni Brenner. Of the five, Dalton’s book is the only one that gives revisionist arguments a hearing; it seems to be the best available book on the revisionist-vs.-antirevisionist arguments. But the other four, in various ways, also undermine the careful reader’s faith in the official narrative.
The above books (read over the past few years) are in addition to the mainstream WWII stuff I’d already read: Shirer, Toland, Waite, Bullock, etc.
