Lizst’s “Les Preludes” were chosen to announce Donald Trump’s arrival at the Rally in Virginia Beach. (That was Dr Goebbels’ fanfare of choice, to broadcast the great German military victories against Jewish-Bolshevism. Is that a subtle hint for cognoscenti?)
The Holocaust Controversy: A real expert refutes Robert Jan van Pelt’s cremation claims: Pelt was Lipstadt’s “expert” at her Trial, who was wrongly permitted to testify on everything from architecture to toxicology. Sample: Actual coke deliveries documented by delivery notes from Feb 16, 1942 to Oct 25, 1943, totalled 1,037 tons. Divided by the current minimum allegation of 1.1 million victims, gives a figure of one kg of coke per corpse. Something wrong there...
Jewish reporter Masha Leon chats with affable David Irving at BookExpo 2002 in New York
Interview: “I didn’t want to turn him into a monster”: Timothy Spall on playing David Irving – but admits about his YouTube speeches: “One thing he does have is a skillful technique and use of language” | Richard Roeper for Chicago Sun Times, or is that (((Roeper)))?: “Denial”: Holocaust legal drama overcomes a few flaws: “Timothy Spall is a snaggletoothed snake charmer as David Irving. Irving is an appalling human being and he is on the wrong side of history in a way that should shame his descendants for generations, but the man is not a fool, and he is dangerous” — There’s a clue: “on the wrong side of history,” unlike (((us)))
It bombs so loudly we can hear it. A Canadian – who came on last year’s David Irving Real History tour of the SS killing sites in Poland – writes today: “I just checked online for the local theatre listings for Denial; no local listings for the movie at the national mega-theatre chain, nor the smaller movie chain, nor the local independent theatre. . . In a 90-mile radius only one theatre, in downtown Toronto the largest city in Canada, is screening Denial.” Can our Real History really be prevailing?
— In Manhattan an audience of seven people in a 400-seater theater, says our informant. In two weeks, reports another, it has taken all of $93,000 in New York.
Mick Jackson tells an audience why he directed “Denial”. He admits: “We didn't meet with David Irving. He has his own website, which you see in the movie. He started saying extremely rude things about the movie. He refused to call it ‘Denial.’ He called it ‘Dental.’ The movie. ‘Dental.’ He said very hurtful things. He said, ‘I can’t believe they cast a beautiful Hollywood actress [Rachel Weisz] to play the Neanderthal Deborah Lipstadt.’ He used that word, Neanderthal. Better casting choices, he said, would include Ernest Borgnine to play her. Isn’t that awful? He’s an equal opportunity offender”
So that’s what those people themselves say about Lipstadt – because Mr Irving didn’t. The worst he said was, ‘I wondered who could play Deborah Lipstadt now that Rock Hudson is dead.’ I felt sorry for her at the time, as a Christian, and still do
Chronicle of Higher Education: A Holocaust Historian’s Trial hits the big screen. “Holocaust Historian”? Lipstadt is a writer who has never written about the holocaust, revealing the extent of her knowledge | David Cole writes in Taki Magazine about Deborah Lipstadt’s book and the movie loosely based on it: Denial is dead | Forward: “How our legal team won the case against Irving” - I watched it with the three leading lawyers: my colleague Anthony Julius; Richard Rampton, QC, and his “junior,” Heather Rogers – in the earlier McDonald’s case, the latter two, Rampton and Rogers, just happened to be friends and colleagues of the Lipstadt Judge: go figure | Jessica Goldstein: Talking conspiracy theories with Lipstadt (“This interview has been edited and condensed for clarity”): Lipstadt was struck by Mr Irving and “the depth of his cruelty.” … Sample Goldstein: “You obviously knew a lot about David Irving before the trial began and before he’d ever sued you. He was in your book. I’m curious what you learned about him over the course of the trial that was surprising to you.” Lipstadt, pausing: “That’s a great question. I knew about him in theory. I knew about him in writing. I had never — and this is why Timothy Spall’s depiction of him is so powerful; it’s chilling at times — the depth of his contemptuousness. The depth of his cruelty. The depth of his disregard of truth. The depth of his hatred of Jews. Seeing it up close and personal, was riveting and chilling.” (In fact her own documents show that Mr Irving was not even in her book until mega-fraudster ‘Robert Maxwell’ wrote asking her to include him in the final draft)
Rachel Weisz, actress, and Professor Deborah E. Lipstadt, right, who was denied tenure at the University of California, looking gay in the Law Courts, London.
Overkill: Ian Buruma reviews that film in the N.Y. Review of Books: Auschwitz on Trial: The Bully and the Witness. Claims Mr Irving talked of “Auschwitz Survivors, Survivors of the Holocaust, and Other Liars – or the ASSHOLs.” (In fact he talked of “an Association of Spurious Survivors of the Holocaust and Other Liars.” ASSHOLs turn out to be legion.) Irving will soon be up there with Mengele; he says in fact that Auschwitz is mostly a handy fake, like Disneyland; the real SS purge of the Jews was conducted at Belzec, Sobibór, Treblinka on the far side of Poland, and other hard-to-reach locations
Live on a New York stage, on Sept. 19, 2016. Rachel Weisz and Deborah E. Lipstadt. The “acclaimed American historian” explains why she avoided the witness box at her London trial. Warning: Lipstadt looks uh, well-fed, and moderator Patricia Cohen – cultural reporter for The New York Times – rivals her in looks. Mr Irving says: “I’ve still got the $1,000 for her” – if she can produce the blueprint evidence she said in 1994 she has | Lawyer Kenneth S Stern of the Rosenberg Foundation (is that Julius & Ethel?) writes My behind-the-scenes “Denial” story: part of the Lipstadt “legal team”, he boasts of the [$13million] financial effort that went into the attack on David Irving, and the extent of fund-raising by American Jews (“depressingly few from the UK”), and the items left out of the movie. He mutters about “Irving’s vast connections with ‘neo-Nazis’ and white supremacists (and racist and misogynist comments)” and reveals how “the [London] courtroom stenographer’s real-time transcript appeared on my computer [in New York], and I could communicate with a vibrating phone in the [London] courtroom, if need be).” Lawyer Anthony Julius “represented Lipstadt without fee, until it became clear that Irving was determined to bring the matter to trial,” and then of course he put in substantial bills. Of course
