There is this Nizkor fellow, Danny Keren, nicknamed Kerensky the Pompous, well known to Revisionist cyberfighters for his mindless tenacity in repeating himself over and over again, replete with snide and supercilious asides - as in this one, directed at one ASMarques, whom we proudly call our own:
This is clearly what the court said. I can only advise you to learn to read; no offense intended, but it becomes more and more apparent that you simply cannot read a short, simple, straightforward paragraph, and understand it.
Here is the paragraph, yet again (with the crucial portions underlined, in yet another attempt to help you):
David Thomas, another one of our own:
Daniel, this is an excellent example of one of the more egregious parts of what you do in your dogmatic determination never to agree with one of the demons you perceive in your fantasy world of Nazi hordes lurking in the shadows, waiting to burst forth and establish the Fourth Reich on the prostrate corpses of your loved ones.
Anyone who's participated in conversations with Marques becomes quickly aware that the boy is no dull carving knife. He is possessed of a rapier wit and intellect which can run laughing circles (of amusement, not derision) around you if you get stuffy with him.
Your childish accusation of his being unable to "read a short simple paragraph, and understand it" would be false for the majority of people on the Internet, and in the case of Mr. Marques it is ludicrously so. You, sir, are not in his league. Mike Stein might give him a good run, but you ought not even try, it makes you look like, well...like what you are. A good, dedicated dogmatist with an average mind and little imagination or humor, all locked in a narrow tunnel of vision.
The fact of the current matter is that you have attempted, in what for you is a typical fashion, to present selective quotes to make a valid point that is strongly exaggerated by what you leave out. Marques has attempted to drag the rest of the text out of you and discuss the overall meaning, and you've played dumb (or maybe been sincere, I don't know) every step of the way, casting slurs while making a verbal ass of yourself. I am not sure who you think this is impressing, but your ring of admirers is going to consist mostly of your fellow liturgical police. To the great majority of readers you will come across as something between boring and irritating.
If I believe what I say, and I do, then why would I let you in on the secret that you're your own worst enemy? Shouldn't I be content to watch in silent amusement as you shoot yourself first in one foot, then the other, and repeat the process endlessly, becoming an Internet joke, a mindless crier on a soapbox in Times Square? After all, isn't it true that what I'm after is to humiliate and otherwise bring discredit and harm to Jews in any way that I can, the same as all other revisionists?
Well there's the rub, you see. That last (and Lord I can already see it quoted out of context....groan) is your fantasy and has nothing at all to do with what I do and why. I believe sincerely that I, along with a goodly number of others, have identified a great social travesty in operation, one that if continued will result in severe and needless strife. A genuine historical tragedy has been hijacked, cloaked in the shrouds of mummery, and used to venal ends by cynics and opportunists who are aided mightily by the emotionally gullible such as yourself. You have no need to be ashamed, there are millions just like you. The mummers have done their job well, very well.
But my beef is not with you or the host of well intended but deluded folks like you. My beef is not with any person, it is with the fact that a religion which should be limited to its originating culture is being imposed on me and the entire Western world by scurrilous means, including the horribly misapplied police functions of states. All that I would like to see happen is for people who know better to stop tolerating this emotional and worse blackmail that makes a prisoner of free intellectual inquiry, and pariahs or criminals of those who dare speak out about the sham. Once freedom of inquiry is allowed, the rest will take care of itself and I can state ahead of time that the outcome will be satisfactory to me because I trust in the ruthless efficiency with which unbridled intellectual freedom can find the truth.
Endless arguments with true believers do nothing to further this end, they only waste the time and energy of all involved. That is why I tried for so long to appeal to any sense of honesty or shame or whatever motivator might bring you and people like you far enough off your end-justifies-the-means and shut-my-ears-to-the-siren-song-of-the-devil behavior to establish just a little common ground, to acknowledge a shared humanity and perception - from there perhaps to discover more that's mutually agreeable, come finally to an intellectually and ethically acceptable agreement on this matter and then all go on to better things, of which there are very many with so little time to experience them.
We sit here hitting each other in the head with verbal hammers while life passes us by. That's a shame, but so are other things.
Thought for the Day:
"Bottom line: After two kangaroo court hearings, there is not an iota of evidence that reading Collins' views inspired a single person to a single anti-Jewish act. For this, freedom was made hostage.
