David Irving: Anti-Semite & Holocaust Denier


David Irving

In his bestselling 1977 work, Hitler’s War, historian David Irving sought to present history “through Hitler’s eyes,” claiming that although Hitler was a “powerful and relentless military commander,” he was also a “lax and indecisive political leader.” Hitler’s War ultimately laid the basis for Irving’s lifelong claim that Hitler knew nothing of the Holocaust. It was during the 1980s that […]

No Irish Need Invent Urban Legends About ‘No Irish Need Apply’ Signs

A People’s History of Howard Zinn – The New Ledger


One of the unwritten laws of opinion journalism is to never kick a man when he’s dead, at least, not until an appreciable amount of time has passed. The question is whether this can or should hold true for those who make their living by doing precisely that. The death at the age of 87 […]

Eric Kurlander: Empathy for Hitler? What in the World is Oliver Stone Talking About? – HNN


Last week the director Oliver Stone caused quite a stir when, in describing his new Showtime mini-series, “A Secret History of America,” he declared that Adolf Hitler was an “easy scapegoat throughout history… [who]‘s been used cheaply.” “We can’t judge people as only ‘bad’ or ‘good,’” Stone continued. Even Hitler was “the product of a […]
