William Sterling Jr wants Mr Irving, Monday, August 16, 2004, to suppress opinions about other ethnic groups
Rude language about minorities - or realism?
A LADY friend shared your yellow Action Report No. 26 dated August 1, 2004. I noted the reference to Italians as "dagoes" and your resentful comment about Asians in the US who were working in hotels and motels where you visited in Florida.
While I am sure some of your supporters welcome such racist comments, I think they damage your reputation and standing. Are not such utterances blatant racism? In the US, very few if anyone would publicly state such vituperation on the record. It also I think compromises and embarrasses supporters of yours who do not wish to be associated with such shocking utterances.
Your game plan in resisting censorship and intimidation should be to stick to your history, stick to your rights of expression, stick to your interpretation of the holocaust.
Here you are on the verge of a major come back with the NZ situation, and now this comes out. You are too smart and too intelligent to simply give the Justice Gray ruling that you were a racist such credibility. I do hope in your noble efforts at revisionism, these comments of yours are not made public. Some of your supporters will vanish as defending such views becomes impossible. Do you really want people to know that you harbour and articulate such views about those whose skin is different that yours?
There is no advantage to you in articulating such racist comments. Think about it!
Your legacy as one of the great historians of the past century, I can assure you, will be interwoven with your public utterances. I do hope these comments you have made are not used against you.
