Several days ago Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who had the good form not to call the President of the US a “devil” at the UN, had an opportunity to meet the prestigious Council on Foreign Relations for a couple of hours. Apparently his performance was sublime and his doctinaire hatred of the US plain for all to see even as they were blown away with his slimy but effective rhetorical and debating skills. Once again he questioned whether the Holocaust even took place, refusing to commit even when Maurice Greenberg spoke of having witnessed Dachau personally and once again raising the false claim that it needs to be properly investigated, as if thousands of books, studies and films – not to mention tens of thousands of correlating witness testimonies – over a period of decades don’t pass muster.
At one point, however, the Iranian antisemitic prime minister raised the question of why there is such an emphasis on a measly 6 million people when 60 million were killed in WWII of which only 2 million were combatants. Flash! A lightbulb came on above my daintly and freshly hair-cut head. I know of another
rabid, hating, prick prominent fella who made a similar claim.
That’s right, Mel Gibson.
At one point during the pre-Passion hype when Gibson was skillfully using the media to depict himself as a victim of Jewish aggression because of his decision to depict the TRUTH on film, he met Peggy Noonan, the very capable former White House speechwriter (“thousand points of light”) for an interview. In it she asks him about his views on the Holocaust:
“You’re going to have to go on record. The Holocaust happened, right?”
“I have friends and parents of friends who have numbers on their arms. The guy who taught me Spanish was a Holocaust survivor. He worked in a concentration camp in France. Yes, of course. Atrocities happened.
“War is horrible. The Second World War killed tens of millions of people. Some of them were Jews in concentration camps. Many people lost their lives. In the Ukraine several million starved to death between 1932 and 1933. During the last century 20 million people died in the Soviet Union.”
Birds of a feather, these Maniacal Pricks. Let’s hope neither one gets his hands on nukes.
