Asking Deborah Lipstadt to prevent censorship of YouTube video about her labeling David Irving “Amalek”
Copy of August 31, 2016 e-mail to Prof. Deborah Lipstadt:
In the near future we will be placing on YouTube a video of my speech, “Lipstadt, Amalek and Irving,” analyzing the ominous implications of your use of the term “Amalekite” to describe dissident historian David Irving.
As you may recall, the video of my speech first appeared online via Google’s video service.
On January 27, 2006 you denounced my speech on your blog. After your denunciation — and two days after Mr. Irving was sentenced to prison in Austria for giving a revisionist lecture — my video was banned by Google.
After Google took the video of the speech down, on Feb. 23, 2006 you then stated you did not want it removed.
We call on you now to inform your powerful acolytes in the top echelon of the corporate media that our video should not be censored. Let’s see you pre-empt censorship, in keeping with your stated principles, rather than sanctimoniously decrying it only after speech critical of you has been tyrannically suppressed.
Yours for Freedom,
Editor’s Note: The “Lipstadt, Amalek and Irving” video had passed Google’s review process and was approved for broadcast by Google.
The finding, on the part of Google almost a month after it had been placed online, of a “violation,” can only be due to behind-the-scenes pressure exerted on Google.
The video had been broadcast from January 24 to Feb. 22, 2006 with, according to Google, 1708 “page views” in that time period.
Regarding this censorship, an in-depth report and analysis of Prof. Lipstadt's damage control stratagem and dissembling will appear in our hard-copy Revisionist History newsletter no. 86, which will be published in early September.
