I have watched and listened to this Tory Government make many promises, make a few correct decisions, such as the ‘Push for Brexit’, tarnished as it became with the full weight of the ‘Remain’ Establishment and the vocal support of a Speaker who had lost any pretence at impartiality; but, another three months, and we shall be out: Deal or No Deal. 

But its accomplishments pale into the shade, when  the mistakes are laid out and listed: such as the whole farrago of the CoronaVirus catastrophe, both in terms of health, and of the economy; of sticking with the sure lunacy of the so-called Climate Change Act, which will reduce us to penury within a decade; along with many more stupidities.

But I write today on a singularly crazy idea, grasped of course by this so-called Government because they love to be seen to be be ‘inclusive’ and full of ‘Diversity’’; along with being shown to be full-on opposed to any scent of Anti-Semitism. The proposal, turned flat down by a prescient Westminster City Council, was for the construction of a Holocaust Memorial; to be built along the shallow edge of Victoria Tower Gardens: which is a Grade II-listed park and forms a small triangular green space next to Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament – collectively designated as a World Heritage Site. 

My views on this abortion are many and varied, but the greatest objection is simply one of logistics; and, simply put states the blindingly obvious: You would have to travel to London to see the damn thing.   

When I was but thirteen years old, our History teacher told  all us schoolboys to read one book, and one book only, if we were to understand the greatest War ever fought. He told us that the Battles; of Kursk, of Britain, at Alamein, of Midway, Pearl Harbour and at Falaise; and of the massacres such as Oradour-sur-Glane, Babi-Yar could only be viewed in true perspective if we also understood the true history of the Nazi Reich from rise to fall: and this would and could be viewed in one book: namely the Scourge of the Swastika. As I turned the pages of that awful book, as I viewed the pin-sharp photographs of the lines of mass graves and dumping-grounds, filled with human skeletons, it was only then that I realised what the whole Allied World had been fighting against. Very few politicians of that decade understood the real threat of Hitler’s Third Reich. Winston Churchill did, but Neville Chamberlain took us into War only because Hitler invaded Poland. 

The true scale of the Nazi Atrocities, apart that is from the genocides practiced against the Occupied Nations, were only revealed when the Russians began overrunning the Death Camps like Auschwitz: and these discoveries were later confirmed after the British and Americans liberated such places as Belsen and Dachau. The unreal views of the living skeleton survivors, amidst the piles of dead, were remorselessly covered by the Allied Camera teams. This film was censored by the British and American Governments, and was only released a couple of years ago under the grim title; ‘Night Will Fall’

So, folks; here’s my proposal, which is to tear up and discard the proposal to build this weird and practically useless underground  so-called ‘Learning Centre’, together with these equally silly bronze fins which remind people of nothing at all: and instead fund the purchase of 90,000 hardback copies of ‘The Scourge of the Swastika’; along with the production and reproduction of 90,000 DVD copies of ‘Night Will Fall’. These items will be distributed amongst all, repeat ALL education establishments with an enrolled age of 15 years or older. The Book will form part of the Syllabus, along with timely showing of the DVD to those schools, colleges, Universities: so that the young can, should and will learn of the capacity, within a nation from whence sprang genius; of Man’s INHUMANITY to his fellow man.

  1. “Very few politicians of that decade understood the real threat of Hitler’s Third Reich. Winston Churchill did, but Neville Chamberlain took us into War only because Hitler invaded Poland.”

    I don’t believe that is an accurate reading of history. Churchill’s opposition to Nazi Germany was due to its militarism, and that it would inevitably lead to wars of conquest. I may be wrong but I don’t believe Nazi Germany’s anti-Semitism was ever a focus of Churchill’s speeches in the 1930s.

    I think a non-militarist but still anti-Semitic Nazi Germany would not have drawn the ire of Churchill. But a militarist, but not anti-Semitic, Nazi Germany still would have.

    It was the threat Hitler posed to the established order in Europe, and his threat to Britain and her empire, that worried Churchill. Not the threat Hitler posed to Europe’s Jewish population.

  2. //I may be wrong but I don’t believe Nazi Germany’s anti-Semitism was ever a focus of Churchill’s speeches in the 1930s.//

    I’d agree with that.

    The perception of anti-semitism in Nazi Germany is something that has been growing more or less consistently from 1933 until today. A Jewish historian, whose name I forget, wrote that if Hitler had been assassinated in 1938, he would be remembered today as the man who killed loads of Communists and Social Democrats, who destroyed the trade unions and led to a big surge in German industrial production – but not particularly for anything he did against the Jews.

    It was only the Crystal Glass event and its aftermath at the end of 1938 that focussed minds on that aspect of Naziism.

    But even after the war, the Holocaust didn’t feature so strongly in popular history of the conflict – the vast battles, bombing raids, the huge losses of life in general, were the themes then. There wasn’t so much awareness, or even sympathy, for Jewish suffering at the time.

    The Holocaust only came to the forefront in the 1960s, probably due to publications like Russel’s book, and has grown in relative importance since then, often to the detriment of other events in a way that contemporaries would have found odd.

  3. Took me a while to get this off the stocks, as the ‘infection’ which was originally diagnosed; turned out to be a Mini-Stroke, hence the delays

  4. Governor Cuomo just “red zoned” the Jewish sections of NYC every neighborhood that was red zoned are Jewish Orthodox Neighborhoods….. Jews and Synagogues….. Jüdischer Wohnbezirk in NYC

  5. You like to pretend Patrick that when police target black and other minority areas they aren’t targeting blacks but high crime areas. Why are you not applying that standard now?

  6. Pat thinks that we should do nothing about the virus

    There should be no enforcement, no nothing.

    Everything, even deadly serious public health matters, is seen through the light of Dems vs Republicans cops’n’robbers and Hannity 666

  7. Simple Seamus…… catching a cold is not a crime, and Cuomo a DeBlasio (Warren Wilhelm Jr) are targeting the Jews,

    Your delusional that it’s racist to actually assigned cops where the crimes of street drug sales, murder, rape, robbery, are committed is your sh*t.

  8. Only on ATW could a post on opposition to a proposed Holocaust memorial site in London be turned into a Dems/ Republicans pissing contest in the US.

    shear histrionics….. It’s a Virus, you can’t stop it. You have to let it run it’s course.

    I got an email yesterday from my Daughters College There are over 72,000 positive Covid-19 cases of Students in the American Universities, with 3 Hospitalizations, and ZERO Deaths… yet all the campuses are closed……

    it’s bullshit.

  10. the only person who made this Dems vs Rep is you foreigners…… I brought up NY becouse the bobbsey twins are targeting the Jews building there own warsaw ghetto.

    I was on topic….. none of you are

  11. ‘Super Healthy’ College Student Dies of Rare Covid-19 Complications
    Chad Dorrill, a 19-year-old at Appalachian State, recovered from flulike symptoms but then developed neurological problems.

    Chad Dorrill was in “tremendous shape.” Tall and slender. Played basketball. Ran long distances. But the 19-year-old college student died on Monday night, apparently of neurological complications related to Covid-19.

    Mr. Dorrill, a sophomore at Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C., had been living off campus and taking classes online when he became ill with flulike symptoms, the school’s chancellor, Sheri Everts, wrote on Tuesday in a statement to students confirming his death. “His mother encouraged him to come home, quarantine and be tested,” Dr. Everts said.

    He tested positive for the coronavirus on Sept. 7 and quarantined for 10 days before returning to Boone, according to his uncle David Dorrill, who said he lives seven houses away from the family in Wallburg, N.C., near Winston-Salem. He said that after his nephew returned to college, he almost immediately began experiencing serious neurological problems.

  12. So when tackling crime it is acceptable, and not racist, to pay closer attention to high crime areas even if they happen to be black areas.

    But when tackling COVID-19 it is not acceptable, and is Godwin invoking, to pay closer attention to high COVID-19 areas even if they happen to be Jewish areas.

    Care to explain the distinction?

  13. The only person who made this Dems vs Rep is you foreigners

    Catch yerself on Pat.

    You were on topic if the topic is, (yet another), ‘Dems are bastards’ thread.

  14. Because De Blasio and Biden want to march them into ovens

    And because Hillary is the KKK Grand Dragon

    Or whatever nonsense we want to make up

  15. “the only person who made this Dems vs Rep is you foreigners”

    This was about the Holocaust. But you made it about your irrational hatred of the Democrats by comparing them to the Holocaust. The main impact of that is to belittle the suffering of the Jewish people during the Holocaust, itself a form of anti-Semitism. So you have now moved from anti-Semitic conspiracy theories to out and out anti-Semitism.

    Yeah lets take the children to school……

    More delusional racism, where would you put the cops Seamus where the crimes aren’t happening? Tell me are the cops in these areas racist because they are protecting the Law Abiding Citizens who also happen to be Black or are you being a racist because you want all those Law Abiding Blacks in those areas to be abandoned? Fu*k those people right….. Let the Animals prey on them, they’re only black people… that’s what you’re promoting with that statement.

    But when tackling COVID-19 it is not acceptable, and is Godwin invoking, to pay closer attention to high COVID-19 areas even if they happen to be Jewish areas.

    Covid is a Virus…. you can’t stop a virus by arresting church goers, and when NYC fully opens up the virus will blossom again and the areas that will be hit the hardest will be all the areas that have been following the lockdown rules. The Jewish areas will be the lowest…. WHY? because they have already been exposed…

    These lockdowns and restriction don’t STOP the spread they only delay it.

  17. This was about the Holocaust. But you made it about your irrational hatred of the Democrats by comparing them to the Holocaust. The main impact of that is to belittle the suffering of the Jewish people during the Holocaust, itself a form of anti-Semitism. So you have now moved from anti-Semitic conspiracy theories to out and out anti-Semitism.

    So the direct targeting of Jews specifically which is what is happening in NYC can’t be discussed on a thread about the Holocaust….. because NY is a Dem State…. oh not only do dems no longer have to follow the Law, your not allowed to criticize them or your making it DvsR….. that’s idiotic

  18. No one is ” targeting ” anyone

    The virus hotspots are being addressed, enforcement is being made where there have been illegal and intentional super-spreading

    Much better to do nothing, I know.

  19. If this is the direct targeting of Jews then heavy policing of black areas is the direct targeting of blacks. You can’t have it both ways.
