Alexander Cockburn’s Counterpunch, a bi-weekly newsletter of the far Left, has racked up quite a few achievements: Giving credence to reports that Jews spread anthrax in the United States, claiming that Israel was involved in the attack on the World Trade Center, and reporting on how Jews control the media.
So, it’s with no great suprise that I saw the latest rantings of Kurt Nimmo–a former Counterpunch columnist and contributor to Cockburn’s book the Politics of Anti-semitism–on the David Irving verdict:
Now that the “Notorious Holocaust Denier,” as the New York Times characterized David Irving, has pleaded guilty and faces three years in an Austrian prison for the crime of deviating from the official, Zionist-sanctioned and imposed history of the Second World War, we can expect triumphant ballyhoos from the Zionists, a screaming and obnoxious declaration of victory for the small outlaw nation of Israel and its endless blackmailing of millions of people who had nothing to do with Auschwitz and its discredited gas chambers.
Finding Nimmo Update: A reader informs me that Kurt Nimmo is no longer affiliated with Counterpunch. Apparently his rhetoric proved to be too much for even Alexander Cockburn.
