A month ago an American engineer from Massachusetts, Fred
Leuchter, was arrested by the German secret police in Cologne,
Germany. He had been invited by a German TV station to talk about
his 1988 investigation of the gas chambers in the former
concentration camp at Auschwitz, Poland. Mr. Leuchter, whose
profession is designing gas chambers and other lethal devices for
prisons, had been hired as an expert witness in a legal case in
which it was alleged that the defendant had lied in alleging that
4 million Jewish prisoners weren't killed in gas chambers at
Auschwitz during the Second World War.
Mr. Leuchter dutifully traveled to Auschwitz with several
assistants and made his investigation. He carefully examined the
alleged gas chambers there: the doors and windows, the floors and
walls and ceilings, the shower fixtures which, so the official
story goes, had been used to introduce poison gas into shower
rooms full of unsuspecting Jews. He even collected scrapings from
the walls and had them chemically analyzed.
Mr Leuchter had concluded, back in 1988, that Jews may or may
not have been killed at Auschwitz during the war, but 4 million
of them certainly had not been gassed to death in the buildings
at Auschwitz identified in the tourist brochures as "gas
chambers." His investigation had convinced him that these buildings
were not used for that purpose and, indeed, couldn't have been
used for that purpose.
He had testified about his findings during the 1988 trial and
had spoken about them in public several times since then, because
what happened during the Second World War remains a matter of
considerable interest to many people around the world today. But
why, we might ask, should the German secret police arrest an American
tourist in order to keep him from talking about such matters on a
Certainly, it isn't illegal in Germany to talk about the
Second World War or about gas chambers or about the so-called
"Holocaust." These are frequent topics in the German
media and in German classrooms. There's nothing illegal about
them. That is, there's nothing illegal in talking or writing
about these things if one does it in a Politically Correct way.
But it is illegal in Germany to be Politically Incorrect.
The Politically Correct position on the "Holocaust"
is that 6 million Jews, for absolutely no fault of their own, were
killed in gas chambers by the Germans during the Second World
War, 4 million of them at Auschwitz. As long as you stick to that
line you can talk about the "Holocaust" all you want in
Germany. But if you say, "Hey, maybe some Jews were killed
at Auschwitz during the war, but I really don't think that 4
million were killed in gas chambers there, because I've been to
Auschwitz and examined the facilities" -- if you say that in public,
the German secret police will grab you and throw you in prison
and you'll be facing a five-year prison term.
There are a lot of other things one can't talk about in
Germany too. One can be thrown in prison for questioning other
aspects of the official version of the Second World War: for
talking about the mass murders of German soldiers in Allied
prisoner-of-war camps after the war, for example. It's illegal to suggest
that Germany was not solely responsible for the war. It's illegal
to say that the National Socialist government of Germany was
justified in any of its policies or actions before or during the
One also can get into trouble with the police for campaigning
for the return of territory taken away from Germany by the
victors after the war or for complaining about the continued
admission of non-White immigrants into Germany today.
The result of these bans on Politically Incorrect speech is
that hundreds of Germans are in prison today in Germany along
with Mr. Leuchter, and dozens of patriotic groups and political
parties have been outlawed -- all for daring to talk about
Politically Inconvenient facts or to express Politically Incorrect ideas.
One of the most bizarre aspects of the German government's
outlawing of dissent is that it's a completely one-sided thing.
In Germany today you are free to tell the most outrageous lies
you want, so long as your lies are anti-German! You can state in
public that the Germans killed more than 6 million Jews during
the war: you can say that they killed 100 million Jews, and that
in retribution the German people should pay reparations to the
government of Israel forever. You can say that, and the secret
police won't bother you. But if you say, "Hey, it was fewer
than 6 million," you're in trouble. And you can insult the
Germans, you can falsify their history, you can spit on the
graves of their patriots, you can praise their enemies, and the German government
will smile at you.
This strange behavior by the German government has puzzled
some people, and they've theorized that the Germans behave that
way because of a feeling of guilt for their wickedness during the
war 50 years ago. That, of course, is a lot of baloney. The
Japanese don't feel guilty for their role in the war. The
Russians don't feel guilty because of the crimes of their former
The reason the German government behaves the way it does has a
simple historical explanation. At the end of the Second World War
the victorious democratic and communist occupying powers
installed a German government of their own choosing. First they
removed every legitimate official from office unless he could prove
that he had secretly worked against his own country during the
war. And they did the same thing with the media and the schools.
The Allies made treason the criterion for holding public office or
teaching or publishing a newspaper in Germany. The only people
who could run for public office were Jews who had miraculously
survived the alleged extermination camps, or communists, or
shirkers who had fled the country during the war to avoid serving
in the German Army -- in the way Bill Clinton did over here
during the Vietnam War. So one had a postwar government in
Germany made up of anti-patriots, of people who had a vested
interest in maintaining the official lies that were the party
line of the Allied occupying powers. The present government in
Germany is the direct descendant of this anti-patriotic puppet
government installed by the conquerors after the war. The last
legitimate German government is the one elected in 1933, before
the war. It's easy to understand why the present government in Germany
doesn't want the German people thinking about that fact. And
that's why the government has made it illegal to criticize the
people to whom the present politicians owe their jobs or to question
the whole rationale of the war and its aftermath.
It is troubling to me and many others, however, that the
United States government encourages the suppression of human
rights in Germany in order to keep the German puppet regime in
power there. If an American citizen had been arrested anywhere
else in the world merely for agreeing to appear on a TV program,
the US State Department would protest vigorously and the matter
would be headline material in all our major newspapers. But in
the case of Fred Leuchter there is no protest and there are no
headlines. This is also troubling because it is hypocritical. The
Clinton government makes a great pretense of supporting human
rights around the world. This pretense sometimes serves as the
pretext for sending American troops to force some Third World
country into line with the New World Order, but it is still only a
The arrest of Fred Leuchter, and the lack of response by the
Clinton administration to his arrest, are most troubling,
however, because they are indicative of a trend. Dissent is
outlawed in Germany today, and it will be outlawed in America
sooner or later, because the same interests in America that
approve of stifling German patriots and criminalizing Political
Incorrectness in Germany are pushing for similar governmental policies
in America. There are many people in the Clinton administration
who would love to be able to arrest anyone who speaks out against
their policy of gun confiscation, for example. They would love to lock up
everyone who argues against the continued destruction of U.S.
industry through so-called "free trade" agreements with
the Third World. There are people in the government who really
believe that it ought to be against the law for anyone to speak out
against the flood of non-White immigrants into America, that it ought
to be against the law to call for deporting all non-Whites to
Africa or Asia.
And there are, of course, the people behind the Clinton
administration, the people to whom the Clintonistas look for
guidance, people who know that they must make it illegal for
anyone to pull the curtain aside and reveal their presence to the
public. They understand that they cannot survive if a majority of
the American population becomes fully aware of their control of
the news and entertainment media and their manipulation of public
opinion and of the political process through that control. They know
that they must limit the spread of information about themseles,
about their power, about the crimes they have committed against
humanity. And they will try to stifle patriots in America -- they
will try to silence every dissident voice -- just the way they
have in Germany, by making it illegal to speak the truth, illegal
to challenge their policies.
One might think that in mass democracies, such as we have in
Germany and in the United States, the string-pullers could
tolerate a little dissent. After all, probably 70 or 80 per cent
of the general public really believe the lies they're told by
their TV commentators and by their politicians. Television is a very persuasive medium.
In the United States we just saw a very substantial portion of
the public -- perhaps even a majority -- let themselves be convinced
by TV propaganda that the passage of the N A F T A would be a
good thing for them. They're in the process now of letting
themselves be convinced that they'll actually be safer when it
becomes illegal for law-abiding citizens to have firearms for
self-defense. So why should the people who control the mass media
be afraid of letting a few individuals contradict them with the
The answer to that is that the truth can be a very dangerous
weapon when used skillfully and aggressively. People who deal
principally in lies are afraid of having this weapon used against
them. In Germany, for example, where it is illegal to question
the official "Holocaust" story of 6 million gassed
Jews, the dissenters were coming up with too many embarrassing
facts, too much evidence that the government and the media had
been lying to the public about what had happened during the war.
The dissent was spreading. Competent people, including historians
and other scholars, were questioning the numbers. Eyewitnesses, who
had been silent for decades, were speaking out about what had
really happened during and immediately after the war, about who
had done what to whom, about who were the real war criminals. And so
the German government, whose whole existence really is based on the
lie of German guilt, simply made it illegal to question that lie.
That's why an American citizen, Fred Leuchter, is sitting in a
German prison now. And the fact that the Clinton administration
has not protested his imprisonment is a pretty good indication
that the Clinton administration doesn't really disapprove of
locking people up for Political Incorrectness. Criminalizing speech
and thought, in fact, has become quite fashionable in the crowd
of New World Order elitists. They believe that they know what's best
for everyone, and any dissent just confuses people. Best to
outlaw it. Throw the toublemakers into prison, if they won't
adjust their thinking to the New World Order.
One of the consequences of this New World Order intolerance is
the plague of so-called "hate" legislation which has
been imposed on the American people in the last decade. It used
to be that if you punched someone in the nose, for any reason
except self-defense, you could simply be charged with assault and battery.
Nowadays it's not so simple at all. What you'll be charged with
depends on the color of your skin, the color of the nose you punched,
and -- most important -- what you think about people of the color
you punched. Anything you have ever said or written in the past
which may indicate that you punched for a Politically Incorrect
reason will be held against you.
It used to be that on university campuses in America any topic
at all was open for debate, and that students and faculty members
were free to express any opinion whatsoever on the topic. Freedom
of that sort has become very unfashionable today, however.
Faculty members are fired and students are expelled for expressing
Politically Incorrect opinions. The atmosphere of intellectual
tolerance on American university campuses today is closer to that which
prevailed in Spain during the Inquisition than that which was the norm
in America before about 1960.
And it will become much worse before it becomes better. The
same clever liars who have managed to persuade a substantial
portion of the American people -- and a majority of the
politicians -- that the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution
doesn't really mean what it says are also working on the 1st Amendment.
Freedom of speech, they want everyone to believe, really means
freedom to say fashionable things, freedom to express Politically Correct
ideas, freedom to discuss subjects which aren't on the forbidden
list, freedom to state opinions which don't offend the government
or the members of any officially protected minority. That's the
way it is in Germany. That's the way they want it in America. That's
the direction in which the United States government is moving.
And it's moving faster under the Clintonistas than it ever has
What can we do about it? How can we restore our right to armed
self-defense? How can we preserve our right to speak our minds?
What can we do to restore a spirit of free inquiry to our
There is no single, easy answer to these questions. Part of
the answer is vigilance. If we want to preserve our liberty, we
must always be vigilant.
Part of the answer is the way we live and the way we raise our
children. We have become a soft, fearful, feminized people, too
willing to surrender our manhood rather than fight, too ready to
trade freedom for an imagined security, too eager to look to the
politicians and the government for support and protection instead of
relying on ourselves.
Part of the answer is a broader, more enlightened view of the
world. In the past we let ourselves be divided against each other
by clever enemies. We let ourselves be persuaded that it was all
right to take freedom away from Germans, so long as Americans
kept theirs. We need to understand that unless the healthy, freedom-loving
elements in America and Europe stand together against our common
enemies and against the sick elements among ourselves who have
come under the influence of those enemies, eventually none of us
will be free.
Finally, if we want to preserve a right, we must exercise that
right. This is especially true of the right of free speech. When
the people who control the media begin trying to persuade us that
we don't really need the right to say unfashionable things, just
like they persuaded so many people that no one really needs a semiautomatic
rifle, then we must speak up loudly and clearly, instead of
remaining silent until our right to speak is legislated away, as already
has happened in Germany.
All of you listening now: join me in speaking out against
those who want to steal our freedom. Speak out against the
politicians in Germany who are keeping Fred Leuchter in prison.
Speak out against the politicians in America who have refused to
protest his arrest. Speak out against the enemies of freedom everywhere:
against the Helmut Hohls and the Bill Clintons, against the
Feinsteins and the Metzenbaums and the Schumers and the Moynihans in
the US Congress. Use every means at your disposal to make yourself heard.
Use call-in radio and TV programs. Use letters to the editor of
every newspaper and magazine you read. Use bulletin boards. Use
And use courage and perseverance. Tell everyone: Freedom for
Fred Leuchter! Freedom for Americans and Germans! Down with the
New World Order and the enemies of freedom everywhere!
