Who needs them _globally_? Well, Ernst Zuendel does, of course. I'm not aware that anyone else has been calling for _global_ censorship on the basis of "hate." But Ernst Zuendel has been. How many times must this be repeated? The movie generates hatred against Germans, and it should be possible to ban it under "hate laws" in Canada, Germany, and other countries. Photocopy and distribute this, and join the worldwide campaign to BAN SCHINDLER'S LIST! Information: Ernst Zuendel at Samisdat Pub., 206 Carlton St., Toronto, Ont., M5A 2L1 Canada We have a GIF of the poster with those words on it, and it's one of the more popular web pages at Nizkor: http://www.almanac.bc.ca/hweb/people/z/zundel-ernst/censorship/ban-schindler.html Note that this is a "worldwide" campaign -- Zuendel wants _Schindler_ banned globally. Which, of course, neatly circumvents the argument that he was smartly protesting the Canadian hate laws. One doesn't protest Canadian laws by invoking similar laws in countries like Malaysia, where _Schindler_ was indeed banned (for sexual content). So we have Zuendel calling for global censorship of material he doesn't like, using "hate laws," so that (in his view) Germans will not be maligned in public. Then we have the Zuendelsite sending out Zuendelgrams which say that it's the _Jews_ who are asking for global censorship of material they don't like, using "hate laws." Can anyone imagine _anything_ more hypocritical? I respect Sabina Citron a lot more than Ernst Zuendel. At least I know where she stands. She's doing exactly the wrong thing, of course, and I wish I could talk her out of it -- she's doing a lot more harm than good, and I oppose her pragmatically as well as philosophically. But darnit, at least she has principles. At least she doesn't do one thing and then weasel around with blaming her perceived enemies for doing exactly the same thing. At least she stands up for what she believes in. Posted. Emailed to Ernst Zuendel (via Ingrid Rimland) and to "DvdThomas," of the Committee for Open Debate On the Holocaust, who still has not weighed in on whether Zuendel is a censor. -- Jamie McCarthy http://www.absence.prismatix.com/jamie/ email@example.com Co-Webmaster of http://www.almanac.bc.ca/ Unless you specify otherwise, I assume pro-"revisionism" email to be in the public domain.
