David Irving: 'Holocaust' Myths

What really happened between Jews and Germany during WWII? While bad things did indeed happen, the facts don't fit the myths that certain Jewish circles, with a lot of global clout, want the people of the world to believe as true. Historian David Irving has been hounded, fined and jailed around the world for doing what a historian should do: investigate, then report on, the facts.

The U.S., he says in this talk, should cherish its First Amendment: unlike other countries, we have been protected by it. In contrast to countries such as Australia, Canada, Germany, France and more, Irving is able to talk about his historical work while in the U.S. But this talk was given in the summer of 1995, and our rights, even under the First, have deteriorated. However, Irving is still not subject to arrest and fines in America for speaking about WWII Jewish history. Barry Manning and Edward Snowden are being pursued by the federal government for upholding the Constitution, but David Irving still can speak free of legal harassment. He is, however, subject to vandals and thugs.

First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Toward the end of his talk, in the question and answer period (1 hr 44 min 35 sec), he tells us that in 1936 Winston Churchill, then out of power for some years, came under the influence of a predominantly Jewish group, Focus, which wrote him a check for around $700,000 that year, a year in which his biggest income would otherwise have been from his work as a Member of Parliament, around $2,000. He had inherited a large estate which had a sizable staff, and what he earned was insufficient. After receiving the check, he danced to Focus' tune, which was anti-Germany and anti-Nazi, a contrast to the rest of Britain which had a generally good view of Germany. King Edward VIII was pro-Germany and pro-Hitler, getting along well with German leaders when he visited their country in 1937 after he had stepped down as king. According to Irving, Edward had been forced to abdicate by the same lobby that backed Churchill. Edward had been king less than a year: January 20 - December 11, 1936.

Churchill, with the backing of Focus, took over as Prime Minister of Britain in 1940. That year the country was offered a very generous peace agreement by Germany, an offer which has since been concealed from the history books. He turned the peace offer down and thus brought about WWII and the bankruptcy of Britain, along with the ruin of its empire.

Irving goes on to say that in September 10, 1941, less than three months before Pearl Harbor, the Zionist leader of the time, Chaim Weizmann (later the first president of Israel), wrote Churchill that if he would grant the Jews their wish for an army in the Middle East, they in turn could get the U.S. into the war on the side of Britain, just as they did in WWI. At the time, except for Jews, the American people were overwhelmingly against going to war in Europe. Two months later America was at war against Germany.
