References to Holocaust denial in record reviews?

Speaking of Holocaust denial, opening sentence of a review of a new CD by Be Your Own Pet:

Aside from the deaf or those in a level of denial up there with David Irving’s idiot pronouncements on the Holocaust, everyone’s aware that we live in great times for music.

Heh.

I’m not sure this sort of reference in the popular media is a good thing or not. On the one hand, it suggests a widespead knowledge that David Irving is a Holocaust denier, otherwise most readers wouldn’t understand the reviewer’s reference to David Irving. On the other hand, it implies that David Irving is far more well known than he should be, given his crackpot Holocaust denial.

I have no idea if this band is any good (although the reviewer seems to think so) or even if the band’s CD is available in the U.S.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
