Who's Gonna Run This (Nazi Out Of) Town?!?


New Yorkers Against David Irving call for resistance to the speaking engagements of pseudo-historian David Irving’s east coast tour, including his November 14th date in New York City.

David Irving is a notorious pro-Nazi history writer. He has made repeated anti-Semitic, Holocaust Denial and racist statements over the years, including that "no document whatsoever indicating the Holocaust occurred" has been found, and "the holocaust of the Germans of Dresden was real. The holocaust of the Jews in the Auschwitz gas chambers is a fabrication." Although he has retreated from some of these statements, Irving has continued to blame Jews for what the Nazis did to them; he attempts to minimize the scope of the Holocaust; and he publicly praises Adolf Hitler.

Irving’s fascist views go back to at least 1959. He has been associated with neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic and Holocaust Denial organizations such as the National Alliance, the Liberty Lobby, and the Institute for Historical Review. In 2006 he was jailed for trivializing the Holocaust in Austria, where it is illegal. Since his release, Irving has marketed himself as a former “political prisoner”.

As the name of his publishing project suggests, Irving serves as a “focal point” to bring together Jew-haters and goose-steppers. He is part of a political tendency that actively organizes to tear apart communities, and particularly to persecute Jews. The June murder of a security guard at the US Holocaust Museum by James von Brunn shows where this racist and anti-Semitic tendency often leads. Van Brunn moved in many of the same circles that promote Irving’s work.

We call for people to confront Irving at each stop of his tour. In July, one quarter of his west coast dates were met by protests. We encourage the communities which Irving is passing through to send a clear message that fascist organizing is not welcome in their town! Please join us in doing this in New York City.

Planning meeting:
Wednesday Nov 11, 7pm: Contact us for details if you would like to attend:

Confront David Irving on Saturday, November 14, 5:30 pm:

Please go to www.holocaust-history.org/pamphlets/irving/who-is-irving-new.pdf to download free pamphlets that can be distributed describing the lying, anti-Semite, including some of his own choice words. Irving has claimed these pamphlets were lies, but of course when given the opportunity to prove it, tucked his Nazi tail between his legs and ran away.

Yes, he was arrested and served time in Austria for expressing the wrong opinions. This is the second time I've seen an article posted on Infoshop that has mentioned this as some sort of validating evidence that Irving is vile.
Huh. Can you imagine someone being adamantly anti-Nazi while simultaneously objecting to the State legislating thought crimes and incarcerating those who hold improper beliefs?
We must never ask the State to fight our battles for us. Whom the State chooses to incarcerate has no bearing on my judgement of whom I call ally or enemy.

Mentioning one of the things he's most known (going to jail in Austria) for doesn't condone the state. Stop with that.

It might be better to mention that his libel suit against Deborah Lipstadt and Penguin Books was lost. Lipstadt called him a Holocaust denier; Irving objected, sued her and her publisher; Judge found that libel had not been committed because Lipstadt's description is factual and accurate. The scholars who testified for the defense not only outnumbered those Irving brought to bolster his case, but their arguments were more sound from a pure research perspective. The judge was more or less forced to conclude that Irving was trying to lie about his conclusions and made him pay all court costs for bringing a frivolous lawsuit.

Here's what some who confronted Irving on Saturday experienced. Good job, everybody!
