Graves Rich on rimland


[Ingrid Rimland is the principal online and media contact for Ernst
Zundel, a leading Neo-Nazi propagandist based in Toronto, Canada. She
appears to have some links, at least an exchange of online mailto: links,
with Tom Metzger, founder of the California KKK and WAR. See previous
messages in alt.revisionism and]

I think it might be useful to check with these media sources to see if
they have heard from Ingrid recently, or if they would like an update.
She also has a keynote.html listing some places she has given speeches.
Clearly, she has made herself a public figure.

It might also be good to research the back issues of these publications.

[I have alleged in several articles, mostly in and
alt.revisionism, that the “censorship” of Ernst Zundel’s Neo-Nazi
“Revisionism,” which I and several friends personally intervened to stop,
and which received broad coverage in the world press, was largely a
calculated hoax orchestrated by Ingrid Rimland, Tom Metzger, and other
racist and Neo-Nazi activists. This is the response she sent to her
“Lebensraum” mailing list. I believe her copyright claim is ludicrous on
its face because this is a derived work — the bulk of the text is
personal email from me. She is welcome to try to sue me if it pleases

“Ingrid” has two accounts on ezundel and irimland. The former is
the official email address of Ernst Zundel and “Samisdat Publishing.” The
latter has three uses:

1. As a front for her (very few) non-Zundel literary activities. See her
home page,, which doesn’t even mention
even though that’s what she spends almost all of her time on.

2. As a platform for spamming. See
<[email protected]> in,
dated October 2nd, 1995.

3. As a replacement for the above when she was identified, twice, as an
unrepentant spammer.

4. Apparently, it temporarily hosts the outgoing mail list for her
“Lebensraum” postings. Or maybe the list is Bcc’d.

BWAHAHAHA! You’re copyrighting the public posting of private email you
received from me? Even for a Nazi like you that shows a lot of chutzpah.

Wrong. This is not from the Zundelsite, this is from CTS. Ingrid and
Zundel put their files on, rather than, there they
could have posted pages far more easily and *for free* since they already
had accounts, because it allowed the much smaller and less important web
site to be blocked without blocking the active mailing list.

Yes, isn’t it amazing what one can fabricate out of thin air? What a
troll! This goes way beyond our wildest dreams!

In article dated February 2nd, I wrote, “This
entire endeavor has a BullExon Quotient (BQ) of 0.8.”

In ,
dated February 3rd, I wrote, “***IT WAS A JOKE, OK?***”

On Sun, 4 Feb 1996 04:27:24 -0800, in private email message
, I sent
an encheferized message to *both* of Joe Bunkley’s accounts making it
quite clear that the “copyright” thing was a joke.

For someone who is supposed to be a professional writer, this Ingrid
character sure has a hard time recognizing satire, even when it is pointed
out to her as such. For someone who claims to be concerned with the truth
[*cough*], ignoring the above messages is strange.

As I emailed Ingrid on February 12th, the instigation of (somehow she can never bring herself to write the

She’s lying, of course. It has everything to do with Ernst Zundel. As many
people have independently confirmed, if you sign up for her “novel”
mailing list, she will subscribe you to the “Zundelgram” mailing list,
which gets messages like these.

I am counting on this. It is a litte disturbing to me, though, that
without even attempting to contact me, Ingrid has chosen to broadcast my
name, addresses, and telephone numbers to hundreds of racists and
Neo-Nazis around the world. I assume she will see to it that noone sees
her spreading my name, addresses, and telephine numbers around as an
opportunity for mischief. That would surely be un-“Aryan,” right?

on it.

She has chosen to post personal email selectively, skipping the messages
going back to January 28th that she liked.

For the record, at the last moment, I decided not to fly down to San Diego
this weekend, though I did book the flights. I wonder if any of Ingrid’s
friends wasted time or money trying to catch me.

Very interesting choice of quotes, coming from a professional liar.

After reading some of your odd comments, I can only say that you see
things which aren’t there, as most jews do. Zundel indeed suggested that
Metzger be censored and this is info not out of Metzger’s mouth but
straight from the pen of a Toronto man who visits the “bunker”
from time to time. Zundel earns a living by separating his “golden
geezers” from their money with his Pat Robertson type scams. Zundel
regularily visits Metzger, so I wonder where you get your pecular
information about this “hate” relationship. Nearly all of Zundel’s
followers suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. I am not sure about Metzger’s

After leaving the Don Jail, some have claimed that Zundel made a deal
with the jews. It is also claimed that Metzger has made a deal with the
faggot Morris Dees. With all of this dealing going on, I am sure
that there is room for a few doubles.

I think it’s time that Ingrid and Zundel make their own feelings plain.
Actually, they already have, and Nizkor,, has
them on record. However, it would appear that Ingrid and Zundel have been
saying different things to different people. Do you find this in any way

I have met many Germans who would disagree quite strongly with that

I find this all very enlightening, thank you.

I do so wish that Ms. Rimland herself would answer the question.



What do you think about Mr. Metzger? Please answer the question.

Ingrid, it’s a simple question.

Ms. Rimland? Are you feeling OK?
