There are observable instances in humanity, where this weird…blind spot is developed. Where the consequences of acceptance or denial are so horrific, so contrary to the heart’s desire, that a blind eye is turned towards a specific object, event, or person regardless of the actual facts folded into the equation.

I dislike conspiracy theories. There is no doubt that there are some instances where conspiracies (past and present) are factual, but there are limits to everything.

This is one of them. I offer this to any holocaust deniers reading: it can easily put paid to the wild fantasies they have spawned in their efforts to marginalize the greatest horror of the last century.

I watched this report on 60 Minutes (Sunday, December 17, 2006, 7:00 PM, PST), which I will encapsulate here:

Revisiting The Horrors Of The Holocaust

“(CBS) For the first time, secrets of the Nazi Holocaust that have been hidden away for more than 60 years are finally being made available to the public. We’re not talking about a missing filing cabinet - we’re talking about thousands of filing cabinets, holding 50 million pages. It's Hitler’s secret archive.
”The Nazis were famous for record keeping but what 60 Minutes found ran from the bizarre to the horrifying. This Holocaust history was discovered by the Allies in dozens of concentration camps, as Germany fell in the spring of 1945.
”As correspondent Scott Pelley reports, the documents were taken to a town in the middle of Germany, called Bad Arolsen, where they were sorted, filed and locked way, never to be seen by the public until now.

“The storerooms are immense: 16 miles of shelves holding the stories of 17 million victims – not only Jews, but slave laborers, political prisoners and homosexuals. To open the files is to see the Holocaust staring back like it was yesterday: strange pink Gestapo arrest warrants as lethal as a death sentence, jewelry lost as freedom ended at the gates of an extermination camp. Time stopped here in 1945.”

Another excerpt:
"Here we see the cause of death: executed. And you can see, every two minutes they shot one prisoner," Jost explains.
"So they shot a prisoner every two minutes for a little over an hour and a half?" Pelley asks.
"Yes. Now look at the date: it’s the 20th of April. That was Adolf Hitler’s birthday. And this was a birthday present, a gift for the Führer. That’s the bureaucracy of the devil," Jost says.”

That’s just one detail among many. I am going to take one small piece of the puzzle, and analyze it, to show how absolutely stupid it is to deny that period in history where we as a species learned that we are as likely to be savages as saints.

The Gas Wagon was “a van with a gas-tight cabin/container-box/superstructure mounted on its chassis/understructure used to kill people by the motor-exhausts led into that cabin. The designation was coined only later: "Gaswagen [Gas-van] - that was the common word only afterwards/later".”

Further on this:
”The Technical Department of the Reich Security Main Office, headed by SS Obersturmbannfuhrer Walter Rauff, developed a special vehicle for killing purposes. This vehicle resembled an ambulance or refrigerator truck and contained a hermetically sealed rear cabin. The victims were placed in the cabin and carbon monoxide was introduced by means of a pipe. The gassing process took between fifteen and thirty minutes. During this time the van was driven from the loading site to prepared graves.”

All other details aside, this item (at least to me) epitomizes the mindset of the mad meme that swept through Germany in those dark days. It was developed to improve morale, as some of the executioners were having trouble reconciling their consciences with their actions (at least in the beginning). It would also save time, money, and bullets.

It shows a point of view that boggles the mind: that these people (the Jews) were categorically not human, that they were no better than animals, and the Germans, having dispensed with the morality of their actions, had to streamline and economize.

The dark grandchild of Martin Luther, born squalling, bloody minded and bloody fisted upon the black legacy of the blood libel.

It's pretty obvious that some heavy duty shite went down.

How some muslims can deny it, speaks to their propoganda, I guess.

BBIM - Well, it's not only Muslims. Finkelstein, who's also anti-Israel as I understand it.
Some folks just love conspiracy theories, I guess.
Then there's David Irving - who was recently tried & convicted of Holocaust revisionism.

Not having any great love for people like Irving, I do support their right to be a dickhead.

I checked the Stormfront message boards the days after the 60 minute show, and they didnt mention a word about the show.

They just turned the page, at least temporarily and found other reasons to rag on Jews.

I wish the show was played before the
Denier conference in Iran...it was aired a week after I think.

Perhaps this will shut up some of them. However, there are always those held up in their fortresses.

Krystalline Apostate said...

BBIM - Well, Irving's pretty close to a neo-Nazi as it is.
Oh, hey, I wonder if Godwin's law applies to posts about Nazis? Hehehehe.

Storm front message board? You mean those folks can read AND write?
Hey, you know what you call a skinhead w/the I.Q of 100? A pep rally. What do you call a skinhead w/the I.Q of 200? The Aryan Brotherhood.

MF - there's plenty of people out there who're holed up in their little fortresses of glass.
