DAVID IRVING’S TESTIMONY
Historian David Irving’s Speech
at the London Forum
Saturation Bombing in World War II
Who is to Blame?
By Michael Hoffman
Censorship: the video of Mr. Irving’s speech, which was filmed in July, 2015, was subsequently banned and removed from YouTube, which thereby denies humanity the advancement of knowledge. The new inquisition will not allow this advancement. Superstition and ignorance are preferred.
Furthermore, three years later, in 2018, the organizer of the London Forum, British Army veteran Jez Turner, was sentenced at England’s Southwark Crown Court, to twelve months’ imprisonment for giving a speech protesting Zionist “control of England.”
Judge David Irving’s historical revelations for yourself:
(While it’s still online)
Background: When he was 77, British historian David Irving gave a speech in London on July 24, 2015 on the so-called “battle of Britain," to an audience of 120 at the four-star Rembrandt hotel.
This talk can be viewed at the link above. The controlled media declare that Irving is a “disgraced” author, but in this lecture one sees a champion of suppressed history.
Mr. Irving addressed the question of who began the bombing of cities during World War II. His subject is the perfidy of Winston Churchill and a correction of received opinion concerning the standard account of the Nazi bombing of Britain, Rotterdam and Guernica.
Hollywood unwisely produced a self-defeating and biased movie on his famous legal battle with Prof. Deborah Lipstadt. (See our review in Revisionist History® no. 86, "The ‘Denial' Movie: Hollywood’s Revenge on Dissident Historian David Irving").
In the course of his address in London, Irving commends the RAF crews that flew the bombers over Germany. He advocates honors for the RAF’s Chief of Bomber Command, Air Marshal Sir Arthur Harris. We disagree with Mr. Irving’s admiration for Harris.
Nevertheless, David furnished important facts that deflate the historical myth that Churchill was “reluctantly goaded” by Harris into the criminal incineration-bombing of German cities. In fact, as Irving shows, this mass murder of German civilians was Churchill’s brainchild.
Irving provides revisionist information on the Allied incineration of Dresden, the German city which was the subject of The Destruction of Dresden, one of his early bestsellers. (The Oxford English Dictionary defines the word “holocaust" as death by fire. Consequently, it is perfectly legitimate and accurate to refer to “The Holocaust in Dresden”—as well as in all of the civilian centers of the major German cities that were criminally saturated with firebombs by the “noble Allies,” as part of their celebrated “Good War”).
The malicious British press, dripping with venom, lied with customary indifference to reality, concerning what Irving said at the meeting at the London Forum. The "conservative" Daily Mail, in a headline in its Sunday edition, stated: “David Irving tells secret rally ‘The RAF are war criminals.”
Irving said precisely the opposite.
Moreover, the “rally” was only “secret” (private) out of concern for the need to evade attacks by Communist or Zionist terrorists, which the Daily Mail did not report. The thing about demonstrably false media lies like the one retailed by the British media, is that they prove that the Establishment traffics in brazen deceit as the principal method by which they sustain their pious orthodoxies.
The astoundingly obtuse, Churchill-as-Sage-of-Western-Civilization folderol remains a fixture of the American Right-wing in bastions such as Hillsdale College. We may disagree with Mr. Irving on any number of historical subjects but when it comes to the Churchill legend, he among its most effective demolition-expert.
Winston Churchill, the architect of the auto-da-fe, who later disavowed his role with the chicanery that was typical of this scoundrel, is hailed on “conservative Christian” college campuses both Catholic and Protestant as the epitome of a “ great statesman of western civilization.”
Such a view is a grave failure of vision. Dresden is in Saxony and the English are a Saxon and Norman people (or at least they were in 1945). The fratricide in Dresden was an act of insanity on the part of the British and American representatives of western syphilization. As long as Churchill is presented as a paradigm of any kind of goodness, the bipolar mentality inculcated by that fraud will continue to shackle our ability to wrangle a future for our children.
The spot where the corpses of German civilians were piled, as shown in the photo at the top of this page, is today marked by an engraved stone put up by the post-war German government. It is inscribed, “Germany brought war to the world and here it was brought back to Germany.”
Do the fools who scribbled that epitaph understand the implications of what is, in effect, an alibi for terrorism against civilians?
Dear German government officials: it was America that “brought war” to Iraq. Therefore, on the basis of your logic, is it permissible for Iraqis to set American cities filled with civilians on fire to bring the war back to America?
It was the Bolsheviks, some of whose leaders had been raised in Talmudic homes, who “brought war” to the Christians of Russia. Therefore, was it permissible for Hitler to terrorize Judaic civilians?
There is no excuse for targeting civilians, whether by Hitler, by Arab terrorists against Israelis, Israeli state terrorism against Palestinians, or the fires of the British and American Allies in the heart of ancient Saxony.
Listen to the Irving speech and judge for yourself; obtain an education in the suppressed history of the air war over Britain and Germany. In this instance, his primary research-based scholarship, with its contrarian truths about who commenced the World War II bombing of cities and who were its victims, sustains an incandescence in what would otherwise be darkness—may it light our path to a commemoration of all holocaust victims, including the half-million German ones.
