First hour: John Shuck is a Presbytarian pastor and KBOO Portland radio host with an exemplary commitment to truth and justice. (Check out his Palm Sunday and Easter sermons.) We discuss his Arbaeen pilgrimage to Karbala, the subject of his new documentary film For Love of Hussain (A.S.)…as well as the subject of my article “Arbaeen: The World’s Biggest Event.” We also discuss the ongoing annihilation of free speech and free thought by the forces of Orwellian censorship—including those that pressured the KBOO board to force John to cancel his planned interview with me. (Negotiations aimed at rescinding that ban are ongoing, and have been now for more than a year!)

Second hour: Activist Cat McGuire argues that the term “holohoax” is appropriate, given her belief that the official Holocaust narrative is grossly exaggerated and has been used to propagandize for the genocide of Palestine among other crimes. Andrew Blair, founder of Academic Freedom and Responsibility, disagrees and explains why the term should not be used. He also explains why he remains agnostic in the debate between defenders and critics of Holocaust Orthodoxy.

Cat McGuire and Andrew Blair both lost their faith in Holocaust Orthodoxy, in varying degrees, after reading Thomas Dalton’s Debating the Holocaust: A New Look at Both Sides. Blair adds that Deborah Lipstadt’s Denying the Holocaust also influenced him by unintentionally revealing the inadequacy of the case against revisionism. He says he is still searching for a decent argument against revisionism, and hopes to find it in Robert Van Pelt’s The case for Auschwitz: Evidence from the Irving Trial.

    Robert van Pelt is the Canadian High Priest of Holocaustianity and is on record having stated that for 99% of what we know of the Holocaust, no evidence exists. (Quoted from memory)

    The forgoing statement appeared in the Toronto Daily Star some years ago. When I wrote a comment to the above requesting forensic or other scientific evidence for the remaining 1%, nary a peep from that worthy.

    Rather than rely on the opinion on one obviously slanted in a certain direction, I would recommend that those interested read the transcripts of the Zuendel trials that were held in Toronto during the 1980’s. Zuendel was found guilty by a jury of his “peers” for publishing false news regarding the H, but both rulings were overturned by the Supreme Court of Canada at that time.

    RvP is still busy propagating his “mistaken beliefs” with exhibits at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.

    Regret to have to admit that he is on the faculty of Architecture at my Alma Mater. HdC

    Blair: @1:10: “Because they are genuine believers I do not think it’s right to call them liars or accuse them of deliberately hoaxing us.”

    Even if these are the people who are teaching your children?

    The exact quote is in the Toronto star.

    Ninety-nine per cent of what we know we do not actually have the physical evidence to prove . . . it has become part of our inherited knowledge.

    haha, who knew Barrett was such a big shot?

    The 50 mile pilgrimage sounds amazing, makes the burning man gathering look quite pale and weak in comparisons of human gatherings. As a non-religious person, I would like to do that.
