"I must admit I was most fascinated by Joe Lockhart's rather
extreme letter where he criticizes a Sun columnist's position
that Ernst Zundel deserves to be deported from Canada. I agree
with the Sun writer myself, but I have a few questions for
Lockhart:

1) A friend of mine is sort of an amateur Second World War
historian, and he's missing a few details about what really
happened in that German bunker in Berlin, 1945, when the
Russian Army was attacking. Who committed suicide first, you
or Eva Braun?

2) When you were a youngster, didn't your mother ever tell
you: a) It's not nice (and not true) to infer that the
Holocaust didn't occur; b) It's not nice to write letters to
respectable newspapers when you haven't taken your medication?

3) What's with your organization's name, 'The European
Christian Defense League?' Since you're rather obviously some
type of white supremacist, why not just drop the Christian
pretense and call your group 'The White Supremacist League?'
Or better yet, how about 'A Big Bunch of Ignorant Nazis!' It's
much easier for everyone to remember, and probably a lot
easier for you guys to spell."
