WHY IS IT SO DIFFICULT? IS IT THEM? OR IS IT US? Or is it…?
Bradley R. Smith
Almost all of us have strong opinions about who the responsible parties are for having created and forwarded the scams about German homicidal gaschambers, Germans skinning murdered Jews to make lampshades and riding breeches from their hides, Germans cooking the corpses of Jews they had murdered to make soap from their fat, Germans burning alive the babies of Jews—in short, the German Monster Scam (swindle) in its entirety.

I thanked him for the anecdote and that's as far as I took the story here last month. But I did take the story further via Facebook and I felt it necessary to make a statement that is reasonably controversial among revisionists as well as with the great unwashed. Then it was decided here in the office that I should make the same argument on YouTube where students and others would be able to observe the simplicity of the setting and the person who was speaking.
It would hopefully contribute to the perception that you do not have to be an intellectual, or a professor, or any kind of expert to challenge what the intellectuals and professors have constructed so much taboo. You only have to be willing. As background, I will note that we have 2,400-plus subscribers to our Facebook page, and that our videos on YouTube have been viewed accumulatively more than 30,000 times.
