McCarthy) Subject: Hoffman's letter: "A System Clone" Message-ID: <1994Dec13.firstname.lastname@example.org> Followup-To: alt.usenet.kooks,alt.revisionism Organization: Kalamazoo College, Kalamazoo MI 49006 Date: Tue, 13 Dec 1994 02:48:09 GMT Lines: 51 I just got the next issue of _Skeptic_ in the mail, and was amused to see that our very own Hoffman-the-second got his letter to the Forum printed! It runs like this: A System Clone Lou Rollins, a hopeless optimist, thinks you are someone worth enlightening but from your letter to him about _Schindler's List_ (SL) you appear to be just another system clone. SL is not a racist depiction of Germans? When it shows the _entire_ German army as either evil automatons or mass murdering monsters? Suppose I made a flick, "Finklestein's Piss," about Israel and the Palestinians and it had not one redeeming Israeli Army (IDF) soldier in it -- every one of 'em was either an evil robot or a monster -- what would be your reaction? I'll bet dollars to doughnuts you'd be screaming about "hate propaganda" even tho' my movie would have two good Jews in it -- Mr. and Mrs. Finklestein -- two good Jews ought to be enough to balance my movie about Israeli Army crimes against Palestinians, eh Mister Shermer? The truth is, you are a fucking idiot posing as an original intellectual. Hope you can read my handwriting. Michael A. Hoffman, II, Dresden, NY Mr. Shermer notes: Mr. Hoffman included this sticker which proclaims "REMEMBAH DE SIX MILLION! For the Next Six Million Years! Published by Decree of Our State Religion U.S. Holy Hoax Memorial Council." A classic anti-semitic characterization of a Jew accompanies the text. It was addressed on the back "To Shermer the Schleptic. Beast Wishes! -- M.H. II" I hope to scan Mr. Hoffman's sticker and put it up on my Web site as soon as possible. When it's there, you'll be able to reach it from the home page: http://www.kzoo.edu/~k044477/RUE1-HomePage.html Is Hoffman still up for a k.o.t.m. award? I apologize for not paying attention.
