Darrell W. Conder and Holocaust Denial (Expanded)

(Update: I have added more to this entry below.)

Darrell W. Conder, who denies Christ, often asserts that there is a Zionist conspiracy to take over the world, and that they already control the media, judiciary, legislature, etc.

He is also a Holocaust Revisionist. He asserts that the standard figures of the death toll of Jews during the Holocaust which is around 5-6 million is vastly overstated.

One of the fundamental ideas of Holocaust Denial is that there is a Jewish conspiracy out there to fool people about the Holocaust. They are awfully vague about this conspiracy. And after reading this I doubt they will ever be more specific about this alleged conspiracy.
This total dismissal of inmates' testimony, along with the equally-total dismissal of the Nazis' own testimony (!), is the largest unspoken assumption of Holocaust-denial.

This assumption, which is not often spelled out, is that the attempted Jewish genocide never took place, but rather that a secret conspiracy of Jews, starting around 1941, planted and forged myriad documents to prove that it did; then, after the war, they rounded up all the camp survivors and told them what to say....

But the fantasy is obviously in the minds of those who choose to ignore the mass of evidence and believe instead in a hypothetical conspiracy, supported by nothing but their imaginations.

That total lack of evidence is why the "conspiracy assumption" almost always remains an unspoken assumption. To our knowledge, there has not been one single solitary "revisionist" paper, article, speech, pamphlet, book, audiotape, videotape, or newsletter which provides any details about this supposed Jewish/Zionist conspiracy which did all the dirty work. Not one.

At best, the denial literature makes veiled references to the World Jewish Congress perpetuating a "hoax" (in Butz 1976) -- no details are provided. Yet the entire case of Holocaust-denial rests on this supposed conspiracy.
When reading these lying words note how they keep comparing the Holocaust to movies as though it was all just made up.

(They also claim the movies are controlled by Jews or those under their influence. As is typical among anti-Semites they view everything evil as being caused, ultimately, by Jews.)

Conder makes his opinion clear in these sickening words. This is from his June, 2009 commentary which condemns Hate Speech Legislation as an attempt by Jews to stifle criticism in order to for the Jews to take over the world.
the Holocaust is not quite the tale promoted in countless multi-million dollar Hollywood films, television productions, newspaper and magazine articles and books. Nope! Today honest scholarship and a handful of honest scholars hang over the tale of the Holocaust industry and Zionist aims like a Damocles Sword.

Now, no one disputes that Jews were systematically rounded up and deported from Germany and the conquered territories, and that many died tragic deaths. [This is just deceptive rhetoric to obscure the absurdity and venom of his current views. Also note how he subtly omits the Nazis' genocidal intentions.] But today an ever-growing number of brave historians are disputing the official Holocaust tale by citing documents [He then cites a document first used by the Holocaust Denier Rassinier to say 'only' 1.5 million Jews died]. Indeed, some historians have found evidence that brings even that revised figure into question, and argue for a death toll dipping down to a few hundred thousand. [Perhaps he is thinking of the so-called Institute for Historical Review, that infamous font of Holocaust Denial, which at one time claimed 'only' 300,000 Jews had died.]
This is from his November 2009 commentary. This is his kooky explanation as to how some Christians came to support the cause of creating a Jewish state.
But then came the "Holocaust." European Christians, as well as American Christians—because they allegedly stood by and did nothing—had the blood of "six million" dead Jews on their hands. Forget the other 100 million or so other people who were murdered in the 20th century by despots like Lenin & Stalin, [Conder has just accused the Jews of creating Marxist-Leninist Communism. He also ignores the fact that the USA soon turned against the USSR after World War II and did all they could to restrain their influence.] the Christian owed world Jewry big time for the "Holocaust"—for "six million" dead, a number that has been long discredited as ridiculously high. And thus was born Israel.

By the time of the Sixties, Hollywood, which was completely owned and controlled by Jews, [elsewhere he says Jews controlled Hollywood since the 1920s] combined with the publishing industry, which was itself either owned or at least controlled by Jews, and the news media, which was either owned or controlled by Jews, started a non-stop campaign of rubbing the world's face in the Holocaust. Year after year, movies, books and articles highlighted the suffering of the Jewish people at the hands of Christian Europe. Yes, by then the Jews had their own country, which America helped them steal from the Palestinians, but that was only a drop in the bucket. The "Holocaust" was turned into a shrine before which the world would need to continually bow with supplication and offering.
What actually caused people to call for the creation of a Jewish state was the Dreyfus Trial in France and the pogroms in Russia. These events at the turn of the 20th century spurred the creation of the Zionist movement.

This is from Linda Packer's August 2006 commentary. At the start of it she details how she used to have positive views of the Jews. This is done to obscure her present rabid anti-Semitic view that Jews control society and the media and are plotting to take over the world and create a New World Order.
I read and believed the stories about Anne Frank, [and of other Nazi atrocities.] I believed the movies as though they were actual footage. [She earlier mentioned watching Fiddler on the Roof (1971), a movie about Jews enduring pogroms in Tsarist Russia.]
Holocaust Deniers often like to accuse Anne Frank's Diary of being a fraud.
The most common complaint against the diary is that it contains writing in a ballpoint pen, and that ballpoints were not popular until after Anne's death. This is a fraudulent but persistent myth. The only ballpoint ink in the diary were on slips of paper known to be inserted by someone other than Anne anyway. The writings of Anne herself are, needless to say, not in ballpoint.
It is sad to imagine that these people have been fooled and corrupted by such transparent falsehoods.

Notice how they keep comparing the Holocaust to movies. How they pretend that fictional movies are somehow fooling people about what happened. They want us to deny what really happened.

Conder numerous times accuses Jews of controlling the media, a common lie often used by anti-Semites to demonize Jews. "For decades an insidious enemy has had virtual control over what America reads, hears and thinks,..." (August 2009 commentary.) If anyone argues against him he can just say you're being fooled by the Jews.

And as if that is not enough, he accuses Jews of striving to unleash their own Holocaust.

In his November 2009 commentary he comments how some among the American religious right are very supportive of Israel.
Men like [John] Hagee and [Pat] Robertson are a very real threat to world peace. They are at least unknowingly serving [If they are unknowingly serving a Jewish agenda than evidence Hagee and Robertson produce to say they not being controlled by Jews will be safely ignored.] an agenda that seeks to establish a new world order—one that will relegate the suffering, destruction and death of World War II to a footnote of history.
That is an outrageous statement. It is not enough for him to deny what actually happened in the Holocaust, he accuses the Jews of seeking to create their own Holocaust.

When I see that statement I truly wonder if there is any limit to this man's hatred.

Now why would Conder embrace Holocaust Denial? Now this will require some speculation on my part.

I think he has embraced Holocaust Denial in order to make his ludicrous accusation that the Jews are plotting to take over the world and create a New World Order more believable.

Somehow he decided to embrace the idea that Jews are plotting to conquer the world and that they already control the media, the judiciary, the legislature, publishing, etc. But if were to admit that six million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust then this fact made it harder for him to believe in the Jewish World Conspiracy Theory. There was cognitive dissonance between the facts of the Holocaust and his desire to believe the Jewish World Conspiracy Theory.

Conder's answer to this was to embrace Holocaust Denial. This way he could relieve himself of the burden of accussing the kin of the victims of that greatest of atrocities. Furthermore he could even use the Holocaust against the Jews, as Holocaust Deniers have always done, and cite as an .
The primary motivation for most deniers is anti-Semitism, and for them the Holocaust is an infuriatingly inconvenient fact of history. After all, the Holocaust has generally been recognized as one of the most terrible crimes that ever took place, and surely the very emblem of evil in the modern age. If that crime was a direct result of anti-Semitism taken to its logical end, then anti-Semitism itself, even when expressed in private conversation, is inevitably discredited among most people. [Anti-Semitism has to bear responsibility for that event.] What better way to rehabilitate anti-Semitism, make anti-Semitic arguments seem once again respectable in civilized discourse and even make it acceptable for governments to pursue anti-Semitic policies than by convincing the world that the great crime for which anti-Semitism was blamed simply never happened -- indeed, that it was nothing more than a frame-up invented by the Jews, and propagated by them through their control of the media? What better way, in short, to make the world safe again for anti-Semitism than by denying the Holocaust? (Source.)
And this is exactly what Darrell W. Conder has chosen to do.

Here are more words to consider. They quite accurately describe Darrell W. Conder and Linda Packer.
Jews are thus depicted as manipulative and powerful conspirators who have fabricated myths of their own suffering for their own ends. According to the Holocaust deniers, by forging evidence and mounting a massive propaganda effort, the Jews have established their lies as ‘truth’ and reaped enormous rewards from doing so: for example, in making financial claims on Germany and acquiring international support for Israel. (The nature of Holocaust denial: What is Holocaust denial?, JPR report #3, 2000.)
They [Holocaust deniers] picture a vast shadowy conspiracy that controls and manipulates the institutions of education, culture, the media and government in order to disseminate a pernicious mythology. The purpose of this Holocaust mythology, they assert, is the inculcation of a sense of guilt....Those who can make others feel guilty have power over them and can make them do their bidding. This power is used to advance an international Jewish agenda centered in the Zionist enterprise of the State of Israel. (Introduction: Denial as Anti-Semitism, "Holocaust Denial: An Online Guide to Exposing and Combating Anti-Semitic Propaganda", Anti-Defamation League, 2001.)
It's as though these writers are describing Conder himself! But they are not. They are describing other Holocaust Deniers. This only shows how thoroughly Conder has embraced the spirit of Holocaust Denial and how enthusiastically he has imitated them.

It's really is quite a pathetic picture to see these persons embracing such transparent falsehoods.
