Lies upon Lies, Hollywood style. Lipstadt’s film lies, #1: Who’s who in “Denial’s” battle for the truth of the Holocaust. “David [Irving] Irving and his twin brother Nicholas were born in Essex in 1938, and their father was a naval officer and commander who served in the Second World War, but did not return to his family when the war ended.” In fact Cdr. JJC Irving, RNVR, was away fighting to the end, and helped his youngest son David Irving write The Destruction of Convoy PQ.17; and he helped his father write his book on the Battle of Jutland, the great 1916 naval battle in which he also took part.
Lipstadt’s film lies, #2: The Guardian, Deborah Lipstadt - Interview. "In compressing a five-year legal battle into a film lasting less than two hours there has, of course, been some tampering with the chronology” – “The opening scene depicts the moment in 1994 when Irving gatecrashes one of her university lectures, waves $1,000 in the air and says he’ll give it to anyone who can produce written evidence that Hitler ordered the final solution.” Mr Irving in fact attended the (public) lecture, accepted the invitation to ask questions, and offered Deborah Lipstadt $1,000 in cash if she could now show the students what she had just said she had– Lie#3 – “a blueprint of a gas chamber complete with the openings through which the SS tipped the pellets of cyanide.” He actually challenged: “I have here a thousand dollars for you if you can produce to this audience, now or at any time in the future, this document about which you have just lied to them.” His friends videotaped the exchange which is quite different from the fictitious Hollywood film version.
Lipstadt’s Lie #4 is in the Lipstadt interview: “The 355-page judgment in April 2000 found that Lipstadt had not libelled Irving.” The court hearing the case against Lipstadt found that her trashy book had libelled Irving in four instances, but allowed her defence in the fifth.
Mr Irving has corrected the LA Times: ‘You today review the film “Denial” and cite Timothy Spall, the actor who portrays me, talking about my father “abandoning” me. Rubbish. Seated back to back, my father and I collaborated on his book about Jutland, the 1916 sea battle he witnessed; and he helped with my history of Convoy PQ.17. True, my father was away in World War II, he was a commander in the Royal Navy; but we were together until the 1967 day he died; his last word to me that afternoon was “Farewell”’
Occidental Observer: Jews Are Leading the Legal Fight Against Brexit — “Needless to say, the interests of Britain as a whole, much less White Britain, are not relevant to this internal Jewish debate” – Mischon de Reya was founded by Victor Mischon, “the son of a rabbi, in 1937, and its senior partners still appear, in the main, to be drawn from London and New York Jews. There is considerable crossover between influential positions at Mischon de Reya and those at the Board of Deputies of British Jews. . . these links remain in the form of Anthony Julius and also in the form of James Libson who has carried out a great deal of pro bono work for Jewish causes”
Mr Irving writes: The “ditty” occurred to me, walking in Grosvenor Square.
I am a baby aryan
not Jewish or sectarian
I have no plans to marry-an
ape or rastafarian ...
My daughter was nine months old at the time. The Jewish assault on me had begun years earlier and there had been mocking references to her mother, who is blonde. Lipstadt herself polemicised against Jews marrying other races. That was one reason they kept her off the stand, as I had ready many articles that she had written, to put to her.
The ditty was spontaneous and neat, like those of Edward Lear, and I included it in the diary afterwards. (As I told the court, I had voluntarily provided to Lipstadt’s defence lawyers all my diaries, millions of words, swamping them, and this was the only thing they found they could use: 0.00000347 percent of the total, I think I said.)
I am saving all this up, as they dig their hole deeper. “Racist?” As I pointed out to NZ Radio at the time, Rastas are any colour, including one (White) New Zealand MP, but I don’t share their beliefs and enthusiasms.
Our English approach to defamation is simple: write the truth, and there can be no complaints.
Mr Irving writes: “I had been given the whole Judgment and negative result of my claim the day before. British Supreme Court rules are that if a Plaintiff appears in person (as I had) he is entitled to be told confidentially 24 hours ahead; otherwise only the Parties’ solicitors are told ahead of the day.
2. I do not know if eggs were thrown by Lipstadt’s people. Since I had been confidentially told the result I expected some kind of antics, and went to the Court one day before, with my little girl, to check out the approaches: I saw there was a heap of builder’s rubble nearby, and had that moved. On the actual morning I arrived in a cab with the reporter of the Washington Post, a nice guy called Tom who bumped into me in Oxford Street waiting at a bus-stop. Sure enough, as we drove up to the Court I spotted a mob of Jews and Lefties waiting, with banners. I asked the cab driver to stop 100 yards short, paid him, and invited Tom to move over as we stepped out (so I would-be to leeward of any hail of stuff from them). The result was that most of the garbage landed on him, and just one missile caught my shoulder. The mob can only have been briefed by, perhaps even hired by, Lipstadt’s solicitors of course, as technically nobody else (other than the Court and I) knew the outcome. The Press does have its uses.”
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 (The Forward).
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
