The Anti-Defecation League (ADL) has issued a press release slamming Sam Cooke’s classic “Wonderful World” and demanding the song be canceled.

According to ADL president Jonathan Greenbutt, the line “don’t know much about history” is unacceptable. “Every American needs to know everything we tell them about the most important thing that ever happened in history—the Holocaust,” Greenbutt explained at a press conference. “That’s why we’re forcing it into every preschool curriculum in the nation and putting up Holocaust museums in every city, town, village, and hamlet.”

Greenbutt insisted that “not knowing much about the Holocaust isn’t just anti-Semitic, it’s implicit Holocaust denial. If Sam Cooke hadn’t gotten shot under mysterious circumstances on December 10, 1964, we’d be gearing up to throw his ass in jail.”

The ADL press release also calls for the permanent cancellation of Dwight D. Eisenhower, Winston Churchill, and Charles De Gaulle, whose combined memoirs total 7,061 pages but never even mention the Holocaust:

“Given that the Holocaust is the most outrageous, improbable, extraordinary event of that war, and is attributed to the three authors’ greatest enemy, the fact that these three Allied leaders not only didn’t know much about the Holocaust, they didn’t know NUTHIN’ about the Holocaust, proves that all three were raving, slobbering anti-Semitic Holocaust deniers.”

  3. Video – parody is very well done, Kudos, Dr. Barrett.

    Have you heard of Br. Bugnolo?

    In a series of short videos he’s developed a theory about why, increasingly, influential voices are down-playing Covid and especially vaccination.

    He’s suggesting Malone is a fraud,* a plant; that Rand Paul might have been somewhat the same.
    But that this is all a feint, a means for Team Evil to gain trust, Stage Left out of the Covid scene and introduce the next act while still appearing to be the Leading Man.

    Surprising for a Catholic Franciscan brother, he indulges in “mark of the beast” and Book-of-Revelations-Apocalyptic rhetoric.
    This video is straight out of Decameron:

    * Bugnola is not alone in his thinking on Malone.
    I ranted elsewhere that Robert F Kennedy was foolish to invoke Anne Frank in his speech at the anti-Mandates rally in DC on Sunday.

    After the inevitable criticism from Greenbutt (!), Kennedy folded; he apologized to ADL.
    So all the attention went to holocaust, Jews, ADL, Greenbutt, and the People’s protest against mandates and generalized government tyranny got lost.

    All those people who froze their red butts off in DC were betrayed just as Trump betrayed folks on Jan 6.

    Malone was a feature speaker at that rally.

    Was the Jan 23 rally a set-up; did someone arrange that to defuse the usual AntiAbortion demonstration?

    A recent BBC TV film, Confronting Holocaust Denial, saw Jewish comedian David Baddiel trying to understand why ‘denial’ is on the rise. As the BBC itself chose to raise the topic, it should have allowed a Holocaust revisionist (the more accurate term) an opportunity to reply.

    Baddiel read from a wartime British propaganda briefing saying that, for the greatest effect, news releases about concentration-camp victims “must deal always with the treatment of indisputably innocent people. Not with violent political opponents. And not with Jews.”(!)

    Baddiel assumes this means Jews were not seen by the Brits as ‘indisputably innocent’. Could be, but I suspect the 1940s’ writer was thinking more of the anti-Jewish sentiment endemic in the East End of London (then being hit by V-2 rockets) and didn’t want to push his luck and encourage snarky quips by Limehouse pub regulars.

    Their term for people who didn’t join (((The Party))) was “Objectively Pro-Fascist.” In plain talk, if you weren’t against Mussolini and etc in the approved Pinko way, you were a fascist. Objectively speaking.

    Now we are objectively pro-genocide for not taking Anne Frank’s ballpoint pen seriously. And it can get worse: Objectively pro-racist if you aren’t a fanatical George Floyd mourner. This can get real bad real fast.

    The Red Thirties of the last century, we must emphasize (using The Dude’s royal “we”) that the Reds totally won. By the mid-1960s, Lyndon Johnson was the US president, famous for saying that anyone who wasn’t a commie in the Thirties was worth a damn. He would have known.

    Now things are changing for the better (or truth) and the new tendency is to take ADL head on. Anti Semite? OK so what? are you going to shoot those people who who question 6 million magic number?
    I wanted to visit the Soviet Archives in Moscow last week when I was visiting there but could not make it because of snow and icy condition (there were tons of archives offices all over). However, a Russian friend told me that one of her colleague did his PhD dissertation on Auschwitz camp and his conclusion was a number of 330,000 total deaths not a magic 6 or 4 million.

    After the fall of Soviet Union Authors/historians like David Irving went to Moscow and did a comprehensive research (and purchased some material) and came up with lot lower number than the magic 6.

    The roots of the ADL need to be exposed.
    The ADL was formed solely to protect a jewish serial rapist murderer, Leo Frank. This jew criminal raped and murdered a 13-year old girl who worked in his pencil factory. He tried to blame the murder on a black man, but was unsuccessful in his attempt to shift blame for his own actions.
    Despite having one of the best legal teams in the country, Frank was found guilty.
    Influential jews as well as himself attempted to “purchase” a pardon from the governor. When the townspeople found out, they removed Leo Frank from the jail and gave him a well-deserved “necktie party”.
    There are attempts by jewish groups to “rehabilitate” Leo Frank, insisting that he did not commit the crimes, but the evidence implicating him is irrefutable.
    The ADL is attempting to “clean up” its image before more and more “goyim” learn of the ADL’s criminal beginning.

    What the Anne Frank acolytes leave out of the “story” is that (if Anne Frank existed) her “family” consisted of criminal thieves, smugglers and black marketeers. They were not “poor jews hiding from the Nazis” but were running a successful criminal enterprise.
    It is claimed that Otto Frank was treated in a hospital in a “death camp”. Now, why would a hospital be needed in a “death camp”?
    Let’s not forget the “diary”, partially written with a ball-point pen. Time travel, anyone?
    From engineering and logistical standpoints, the so-called “holocaust ™” is based on impossible claims and did not occur. It’s a fabrication of the highest order.

  28. ruralguy says:

    When you examine the purported “Holocaust,” from the proper perspective of a legal case with its rules of evidence and criminal procedure,you’ll see that the Allies never proved their case in Nuremberg and the other Soviet/British trials. Until they prove their case, legally, the commonly accepted conviction that the Germans committed a Holocaust is ridiculous. Of the 485 tons of confiscated German documents sitting in our National Archives, not a single document describes a Holocaust plan, even though the Germans meticulously documented every detail of their military campaigns. The prosecution sought and obtained very relaxed rules of evidence and criminal procedures to win their convictions, because they couldn’t win the cases with proper legal procedures. The German prisoners suffered severe physical symptoms of torture, but many of them said the psychological torture was worse– mock executions and threats to deport their families to the Soviet Union, where they would have met certain death. A legal team that has a winning case doesn’t need to resort to loosening criminal procedures, eliminating rules of evidence, and threatening and torturing witnesses. It rightly impugns their case. The U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Harlan Stone, said of the Nuremberg Trials: “Chief Prosecutor Jackson is away conducting his high-grade lynching party in Nuremberg. I don’t mind what he does to the Nazis, but I hate to see the pretense that he is running a court and proceeding according to common law. This is a little too sanctimonious a fraud to meet my old-fashioned ideas.” The hypotheses that the Germans conducted a Holocaust was never proven with proper legal arguments. It should be considered war propaganda, not much different that the fake news rampant in this country.

    I never heard from any Jew or ADL sympathizer uttering a single word about General Ulysses or calling him Anti Semite. Instead they love to keep \$50 bill with Grant’s face in their wallets.

    After all it was General Grant who expelled all Jews from the states of Tennessee and Kentucky for collaborating with the enemy in 1862.

    May be the such incidents should be part of history lessons in schools instead of forced reading of the “Night” or Swindler’s list.

    Krakow and Chatawitcz areas near Auschwitz camp are full of snow during winter months, however, during Jan 1945 when USSR liberated (not the Americans as Obama claimed about his uncle) the snow miraculously disappeared. May be there was no snow in Jan 1945.

    The hospitals were to treat the sick prisoners (Eli Weasel was one of them too. without a tattoo. he escaped bravely and ended up with Allied forces? he wrote about his stay in Auschwitz. Nice plot for a TV series).

    The prisoners were provided medical care and after their recovery they tattooed, shaved, stripped naked and gassed from the exhaust of a single captured T-34 Soviet tank. or burned, or killed with some gas, depending which Hollywood movie you have watched.

    The prisoners were provided with facilities like swimming pool, post office, gardening plots, theaters, Baby sitting for young ones. Go to bitchute and other plate farms than youtube to learn what is not told.

    There were supposedly 6 million Jews in Eastern Europe prior to WW2. The narrative claims that those 6 million were killed by the Germans….yet, there are a few million Eastern European descended Jews in Israel who moved there before and after WW2. Hmm. Also, there is estimated to be up to 400,000 Jews in Ukraine right now today, and a larger number in Russia.

    It’s as if there wasn’t a Holocaust and no intentional move to mass murder Jews, but that a few hundred thousand died due to poor conditions in the camps due to scarce resources in a war that they were losing [this seems to be the real story actually].

    There was also the assassination of Nazi diplomat Ernst vom Rath which was done by a Jew [Herschel Grynszpan], this is what led to the “Kristallnacht” riots – he was never officially executed for that and there are photos that appear to be him from 1946…for a people who supposedly wanted to wipe out all European Jews, why would they let a assassin of a Diplomat of theirs live? Or the French Jews. The narrative has more holes than swiss cheese.

    If they had a conscience they would be ashamed for those lies but they have none. They were the war criminals and to cover up their own deeds they vilified Germany. They wanted and started the war, getting involved in disputes that were none of their business. A fat, corrupt politician named Churchill accepted Jewish money to start that war and destroyed his own empire in the process. At least that happened but most British are too stupid to understand that. They have been told they had no choice and that they were defending themselves, even though they declared war on Germany. That they allied themselves with the criminal USSR, also run by Jews, shows that money is what motivated the Capitalist powers.

    That is why Europe has fallen so far, much of it will soon approach shithole status and the US is even worse. In 10 years it will have lost its reserve currency, will unquestionably no longer be the biggest economy in the world ( it might not be number 2, 3 or 4 either) and it will be a full blown shithole country, too violent for most tourists.

    Russia was lucky to have a great man and other competent leadership that came along that turned them around. It is still possible Germany could do that and become a major industrial competitor again. If that happened, those two countries would make Europe much better off and the rest of Europe could turnaround too. First, they have to stop importing Africans and Muslims that they use to wipe out their own populations.

    I applaud RFK jr. for speaking out about Covid 19 but he should keep his mouth shut regarding anything relating to WW II. Unless he’s stupid (and I see no evidence of that) he knows his older relatives had a very different perspective of things than what he says but their views are considered unacceptable because Germany lost the war and Jews insist that Germans must be portrayed as pure evil and Jews must be portrayed as innocent bystanders.

    RFK Jr. made a speech to a German crowd about Covid 19 last year and mischaracterized a Hermann Goering quote by taking a good sentiment and portraying it as evil. No surprise there but it’s insulting to a German that knows better. RFK Jr’s grandfather, Joseph P. Kennedy was the US Ambassador to Great Britain when WW II broke out and he was a critic of Jews, saying they were pushing the US into WW II. He was not the only one saying that, not by a long shot. Kennedy was opposed to WW II and opposed to the US getting involved. He thought Churchill was an unscrupulous killer that might have him killed on his ship back to the US, then blame it on the Germans to pull the US into the war. JFK jr’s uncle JFK was a great admirer of the Germans, including Hitler. As much as the liars want to cover that up, his diaries are crystal clear. These stupid people don’t realize that they have been brought up on pure hatred of everything German but educated people alive before WW II knew that Germany led the world in everything, all scientific fields and engineering. Their contributions to European culture, especially in music were unsurpassed. So, many people admired Germany, even people that might not like Hitler. RFK is an insult to his family when he tries to placate Jews. His grandfather was a critic of Jews and for good reason. RFK Jr. should either shut up or get off his knees.

    A book review of Edward Renehan, Jr.’s book The Kennedys at War, 1937-1945, published in April 2002 by Doubleday.

    In the book review Joseph Kennedy and other critics of FDR’s warmongering are criticized as “anti-Semites” for among other things, blaming the Jews for WW II. Besides Kennedy, others saying this included the famous aviator Charles Lindbergh, Father Charles Coughlin and British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain. If anyone would know, it would be Chamberlain but of course all these people must be smeared as bigots. We can’t allow them to show the Jews role in starting WW II. The university website apparently could not tolerate online critics of the book review labeling anyone that does not share their view of Jews as innocent angels and labelled them as “anti-semites” and blocked any comments on the book review.

    Joseph Kennedy and the Jews

    Edward Renehan, Jr.’s book is The Kennedys at War, 1937-1945, published in April 2002 by Doubleday.

    An interesting article on the Kennedy family and the tragic ending to several of their lives. Coincidence? Conspiracy theory?

    Regarding Ambassador Kennedy:

    “When Kennedy decides to go back to Florida for a vacation, he takes the plane down to Lisbon, and he boards the USS Manhattan to sail back across the Atlantic, and in a bit of a panic because he knows who he’s dealing with, he’s dealing with Churchill, he sends a telegram to the State Department saying: Please, will you announce that if the USS Manhattan is torpedoed and sunk that the United States will not declare war (with Germany) over this because I have reason to believe that Churchill is planning to torpedo the Manhattan knowing that I’m on board!”

    If you plan on killing a group of people it is just polite to waste money on hospitals for them, pools, brothels and post offices. Of course you can save money using wooden doors on the gas chambers and perhaps charging admission to the theaters.

    If something is “factual,” if something is “truthful,” nobody should care if it’s doubted or questioned. You don’t ban the expression of contrary opinion, you don’t jail defense lawyers and 90-year-old women (!), and the like. This why I think the “Holocaust” is fanciful.

  51. @Right_On

    Probably so. Going through adolescence in England in the 1960s, I knew a certain amount about World War II, because of course the ruined cities, bomb sites, and the dank, rotting remains of air-raid shelters were all around us.

    I knew a little bit about the concentration camps, the gas chambers, and had seen pictures of emaciated people who were all skin and bones, and put that down to Nazi cruelty, but I don’t think I had ever heard the word holocaust until maybe I was in my 30s or 40s.

    We also knew about a few Jews who had fled the wicked Nazis and come to England, like Sigmund Freud and Karl Marx. OK, it turned out that Marx was earlier, but when you were a teenager it was all ancient history.

    I had also heard of Anne Frank, and I knew that she was Jewish, and that Jewish people had been captured and put in concentration camps.

    But it seems like now, 50 years later, you hear much more about the Holocaust than you ever did then.

    I don’t know when I heard about the 6 million Jews, but it might have been within the last few years.

    But I confess that it is still not really clear to me how many were executed, and how many died of typhus, tuberculosis, and malnutrition.

    The most shocking thing perhaps was that the Germans didn’t keep records, and just regarded concentration camp inhabitants as cattle.

    I don’t think I had ever heard the word holocaust until maybe I was in my 30s or 40s.

    Same here! That’s because, up until around 1980, we Brits referred to the event as “The Final Solution”. It was only under the irresistible influence of Hollywood that the Yank-preferred term “The Holocaust” became predominant. The change coincided with the Holocaust no longer being seen as yet one more WWII nightmare – alongside the war in the Atlantic, the siege of Leningrad, Dresden, Hiroshima, . . . It was sacralised and turned into liberals’ equivalent of Christ’s Passion narrative.

    I just checked and I see that the UK’s ‘Holocaust Memorial Day’ (27 January) was first held as recently as 2001 !

    There was so much to learn about World War II, like Neville Chamberlain’s “peace in our time”, the Battle of Britain, the Blitz, Crete, the Battle of the North Atlantic, the North African campaign, the Battle of El Alamein, Field Marshal Montgomery, Tobruk, Stalingrad, Anzio, Burma, Iwo Jima, Dunkirk, Dresden, the D-Day, the Guns of Navarone, Normandy invasions, the Dambusters, the Bridge Over the River Kwai, the horrors of the Japanese POW camps, Colditz, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, the Nuremberg Trials–and, oh yes, Auschwitz, Belsen, Flossenburg, Buchenwald, Treblinka, Dachau, Birkenau, etc., names that struck horror into every heart.

    My mother had been a student nurse in Ipswich in eastern England during the Blitz and had tales of working in the hospital under blackout conditions and hearing the German bombers going overhead. However, it could not have been too bad, because she was paid \$3 per week and had a weekend off every month.

    My father joined the navy at 18 to avoid being drafted into the army, and served on a corvette on convoys in the north Atlantic.

    Prior to the War, Britain had obtained 70% of its food from overseas, and now Germany was trying to starve Britain out. Both food and clothing were rationed in England during the war and for several years afterwards. You had to register with a food store or grocery, and your ration stamps were only redeemable at that store. Many children were separated from their families and sent to live in the countryside, but in spite of that thousands of children were killed in the bombing.

    Children got issued bottles of orange juice concentrate and cod-liver oil to combat malnutrition. I still remember going with my mother to get my bottles in the early 50’s. She would pour the cod liver oil onto a spoon, and then I would get a spoonful of OJ to help the medicine go down and take away the horrid taste.

    This was perhaps the last all-out war in which two civilian populations were trying to exterminate each other by starvation and fire bombing heavily populated cities, but
    one of the huge benefits of World War II was that there was very little obesity to be seen.

    If you talked to older people who had lived through WWII in the 1960’s the memories would be mostly of food rationing and of the horrors of night time bombing and the air raid shelters, with minor complains about blackouts, restrictions on travel and the shutdown of professional sports like soccer and cricket for several years. At the beginning of the war movie theaters (cinemas) had been shut down too, but then they had been reopened due to the need for some kind of entertainment.

    Of course at that time housing was not what it was today. Many people did not have indoor toilets, or bathroom, and there was a shortage of coal for heating, so they were often cold and unwashed and lucky if they could find old newspapers to wipe their butts.

    (Nothing compared to the sufferings of RFK Jr. and his family under Covid-19 in Nazi-run California.)

    However in general people in the UK did not want to talk too much about the horrors of total war after it was all over, and turned their minds to other things, like creating the baby boom, and some of the kids who had grown up during the war and its aftermath of postwar austerity, like Lennon, McCartney, and Jagger went on to create the “swinging Britain” of the 60’s.

    Nobody wanted to put “Proud Veteran of World War II” tags and stickers on their cars. It was best forgotten.

    So, sorry, Jews, you did suffer worse than most during World War II, but it was not all about you. There have been a lot of wars since 1945 and others have suffered just as much as your people did. You have your own homeland now. Get over it! If there is a lesson to be learned from World War II, it is that all-out war between populations benefits no one. Imagine how it would be if the Japanese had continued to whine forever about Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
