Roll over, Niemoeller

When they came for the neo-Nazis,
I remained silent;
I was not a neo-Nazi.

When they locked up the anti-Semites,
I remained silent;
I was not an anti-Semite.

When they came for the Holocaust deniers,
I did not speak out;
I was not a Holocaust denier.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

Simon Sheppard, scientist, former recording studio engineer, and webmaster of heretical.com, and Stephen Whittle, a columnist for heretical.com writing under the pen name Luke O’Farrell, are being detained in a California prison. Sheppard and Whittle, both British citizens, fled to the U.S. seeking political asylum after having been convicted of speech crimes in a UK court. Some of the charges, which by all accounts were trumped-up, were related to the following material on the heretical.com website: Tales of the Holohoax, a comic book which pokes fun at the outrageous lies told by so-called “holocaust survivors”; and legendary underground artist Robert Crumb’s comic strip When the Goddamn Jews Take Over America (French version available here). [UPDATE – Nov 11, 2012: Tales of the Holohoax has been removed from the heretical.com website, but is now available here.]

For more of the background to this situation:

The best way to show your support for the ‘Heretical Two’ is to make a donation to their legal defense fund. The fund is trying to raise $10,000 to pay for attorney’s fees. If you care about free speech, consider giving whatever you can, whether it be $10, $100, or $1000. The repercussions of this case are likely to extend far beyond the UK, since heretical.com is hosted on an American server. In other words, it’s not just a domestic issue that will only affect UK citizens; cases like these will determine whether the Internet remains free for everyone. Donations may be made anonymously by cash, cheque, or PayPal.

  3. i was wondering if you could answer a couple questions for me in regrads to holocaust denial

    i know i just posted a comment but i messed up the email

    1. What is it you want to know, Mr. Hellman? I won’t email you since I’m not running a catering service for students writing papers about holohoax denial but if you’d like to have your questions answered here, then ask away.

      FYI, I don’t especially care if someone calls me a “holocaust denier” since personally I regard the conspiracy theory that German concentration camps were secretly “death camps” replete with homicidal gas chambers of which we can find no traces today to be laughably ridiculous, and the people who believe such drivel to be easily-duped morons, but most serious researchers in the field prefer to be called “revisionists,” not “deniers.” You’ll be more likely to receive a cooperative response from them if you call them revisionists rather than deniers, since the term “holocaust denial” is widely seen to carry pejorative connotations.

      1. Indeed. With all the information available on internet about the holohoax those who still believe in the biggest lie ever must be considered low quality people (using Eric Hufschmid words, they are talking monkeys).
