Hoffman's Letter to China concerning Google and censorship

Ambassador Zhou Wenzhong
Embassy of China

Washington D.C. 20007

Dear Ambassador Wenzhong

Re: Google vs. China

In today's news we read what appears to be the stirring stand of Google, the Internet search engine giant, in defying "Chinese censorship." The U.S. media is complicit in disseminating the farcical myth about Google's alleged stand against censorship.

The fact is, Google itself practices censorship of dissident history and scholarship. Scientists, historians and journalists in the West who investigate and subsequently dissent from any aspect of the vast corpus of World War II history classified under the neologism "The Holocaust," are denied access to the public by various forms of censorship and repression. Dissident investigative research by scholars and journalists in this field is called by the pejorative and highly inaccurate quasi-theological term, "Holocaust denial."

At Google this takes the form of refusing advertisements for "Holocaust denial" books and other media and censoring any form of expression dubbed "Holocaust denial."

In 2006 Google censored videos produced by this writer that pertained to Auschwitz, Deborah Lipstadt and the Protestant historian Charles Provan. In the case of Mr. Provan, the video interview with him was censored by Google because Provan, who accepts the claims of homicidal gas chambers allegedly used by the Nazis, dared to state in the course of his videotaped interview, that Judaic inmates were the ones who operated the killing gas chambers in the concentration camp at Treblinka.

After receiving numerous complaints and protests over the removal of my history videos from "Google Video," the Google corporation never responded to a single complainant. Google's arrogance and hypocrisy truly knows no bounds.

The history videos censored by Google contained no racial invective of any kind. Neither did they contain any sexual pornography. They were censored by Google strictly on the basis that they contradicted the official American version of what transpired during World War II.

I am writing to inform you and the Chinese people that Google's attempt to pose as a champion of freedom of speech against China, is a sham. They are censors and what is more, they are dishonest censors in that they pretend to be advocates of freedom of speech when they are in fact guilty of the very thing for which they accuse the government of China.

Sincerely,
Michael Hoffman

Michael,

I totally agree. I have had blogs of mine attacked by Google for no reason other than I utilize my freedom of speech. It happens on a regular basis. The same attacks would not occur, except that I vehemently oppose the American led Zionist war against Arab and other peoples both Muslim and Christian. The Judaics have declared war on Muslim and Christian physically. Google is the Judaics' minister of propaganda.

Good letter!

A very minor comment: the ambassador would more properly be addressed as "Ambassador Zhou," his surname.

A good letter. Based on the very fair coverage of the west by Russia Today, Press TV, China Daily, et al, I think Americans may be better off using their energies on these kinds of appeals to representatives of foreign governments, who hold more leverage over Washington than our own "representatives."

Just as the help of Russia was indispensable to Lincoln in the civil war, citizens should appeal to these more functional nations in helping us rid ourselves of the influence of the Talmudic drones of Wall Street and London.

Google's Deep CIA Connections

Actually the "dissidents" usually end up being on the payroll of the CIA like Mrs Rebiya Kadeer and her Uighur terrorists who trained in CIA/ISI camps in Afghanistan http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/07/world/asia/07kadeer.html?_r=2&ref=world or the not so peaceful Tibetan guerrilla’s of CIA man the Dahlia Lama.

I love the irony in the fact that I found this page by Google searching "re: China Letter." It was the first entry on my Google search.
