Continued from Walt forum (10/07/11)       ⇌ (@jayn0t)       

Just to clarify for the curious:

Is is true that you were responsible for this Marr guy appearing at Pacifica Forum?

Did or did Marr not give a Sieg Heil salute?

If yes on the two above, did you denounce him for having done so?

Quid pro quo: I'll answer anything you'd like if you'll be so kind.

Thanks!

Ass-backwards syllogism (02/21/12) : Jay, You write: "But you still have the remnants of a Jewish tribal viewpoint: "Anti-Semitism, unlike most other kinds of prejudice, has an enormous and quite recent body count", you claim. Not so. Ant...

There's more than one rogues' gallery (02/17/12) by Jay Knott: I'm glad you agree with the one-state solution. This means you are not a Zionist. But you still have the remnants of a Jewish tribal viewpoint: "Anti-Semitism, unlike most other kinds of prejudice, has an enormous and quite...

The rogues' gallery (02/07/12) : What do you want to do, Jay, go over the rogues' gallery of people who have espoused Holocaust denial? One of the things that Paul Eisen never bothers to mention in lionizing Ernst Zundel and Ingrid Rimland is that they're...

There is no logical connection between holocaust revisionism and anti-semitism (02/04/12) by Jay Knott: In previous messages, aemathisphd, you wrote"Holocaust denial exists as a continuation of anti-Semitism before 1945. It's no more complicated than that." pacificaforum.org/posts/445 pacificaforum.org/posts/447 and in...

Response pasted (and expanded) from e-mail (02/04/12) : Well, I don't see much new here. Atzmon is correct that it shouldn't matter whether one believes or doesn't believe that the Holocaust happened to qualify one as being in solidarity with the Palestinians. But the real world...

I think we'll have to leave it at that for the time being... (10/23/11) by Jay Knott: I read with interest your essay on the Anti-Defamation League's gymnastics on the Armenian massacre, but I've never heard of Potter Stewart. This discussion reminds me of why Jeff Blankfort says to avoid 'the ...

Like Potter Stewart on pornography... (10/18/11) : He pointed out, for example, that someone who had never heard of the Holocaust, then was told of it, and simply didn't believe that people could do such things, could be a denier. Yeah, except he's wrong also. The vast...

Noam Chomsky demolished the idea that 'holocaust denial' is 'anti-semitism' (10/17/11) by Jay Knott: He pointed out, for example, that someone who had never heard of the Holocaust, then was told of it, and simply didn't believe that people could do such things, could be a denier. Other people doubt aspects of the official...

So what's the "other side"? (10/17/11) : You wrote: {snip} Knowing all the above, its reasonable to ask if the history we have been taught is entirely free of philo-semitism. This is one reason 'holocaust deniers' exist - they reason that, since we've been told...

It's not about facts (10/17/11) by Jay Knott: 'Aemathisphd' - I am familiar with all the facts you narrated in your last post.I could disagree with some of them, but I have to remind myself, my argument doesn't depend on facts.It's to do with who controls access to facts,...

Historical certitude (10/16/11) : You've noticed the role of guilt in politics. It's amazing (particularly to someone raised in the 'materialist conception of history') that such emotions can affect the supposedly hard-headed rulers of the 'imperialist'...

'Played' the role of victims? (10/16/11) by Jay Knott: You've noticed the role of guilt in politics. It's amazing (particularly to someone raised in the 'materialist conception of history') that such emotions can affect the supposedly hard-headed rulers of the 'imperialist'...

Jewish supremacism vs. white supremacism? (10/15/11) : OK, I think I have a better idea what you're talking about now. So the question, then, is why has white supremacism been largely defeated, or at least questioned, while Jewish supremacy, specifically in the case of Israel, has...

Further reply to 'aemathisphd' (10/15/11) by Jay Knott: Aemathisphd asks: "If what you're saying is that Palestinian militants need to embrace their anti-Semitism in the same manner that some ANC types embraced their hatred of all white people, regardless of their political ...

K-Mac, eh? (10/15/11) : I suppose if you try hard enough you can find a foul-mouthed hate-monger (probably a provocateur). It's more honest to find the BEST presentation of an idea you disagree with. In this case, it's the writings of Kevin...

Liberty, Zionism and anti-Semitism (10/14/11) by Jay Knott: As you say - "That being said, I think that it's a dicey kind of game to have that kind of person spouting his rot. I understand, on the one hand, being a civil libertarian myself, that it's important that heinous points of...

"flying high, into the sky..." (10/13/11) : Jay, Thanks for your reply. I'm unaccustomed to intelligent criticism. You're quite welcome. I don't take much notice of how 'offensive' something is. Let's take a concrete example. If a...

Off We Go Into the Wild Blue Yonder (10/13/11) by Jay Knott: Thanks for your reply. I'm unaccustomed to intelligent criticism. "Why the Nazis are more offensive than the US Air Force" I don't take much notice of how 'offensive' something is. Let's take a concrete example. If a group of...

Continued, continued (10/12/11) : You write, "Since I didn't answer 'yes' to both questions, I don't need to answer this question. In fact, I don't need to answer it anyway. Instead, I will ask another question: why is the Sieg Heil salute regarded as p...
