An actual honest Holocaust denier?

While I happen to be on the topic of free speech and neo-Nazis today, here’s something that came to me via Holocaust Controversies, a Holocaust denier comments about Sergey’s post about the 65th anniversary of the Babi Yar massacre:

So is this the so-called “massacre” where kikes were supposedly massacred? God, but were it only so. Thus the volk who seek freedom fm Judaic oppression need merely review the proper historical dialectic.

He then goes off on a standard anti-Jew rant, citing arch anti-Semite and Holocaust denier Michael Hoffman III.

As you can see, this “Apollonian” is the variety of denier known as “the Holocaust didn’t happen but the Jews deserved it” denier (not to be confused with “the Holocaust never happened and it should happen again” denier). Now that I think of it, one of these days, I’ll have to list the different varieties of Holocaust deniers, a taxonomy, if you will. There are at least several distinct types.

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.
