When David Cole's Open Letter to the Daily Texan was run as a half-page ad on 19 February, it took weeks for the dust to settle. Then our video, "David Cole Interviews Dr. Franciszek Piper," was run on Austin public access TV four times. What was the response on the part of the Holocaust Lobby?

"Ex-Neo-Nazi to Speak at UT" is the headline announcing that Tom Martinez was to lecture the intellectuals at University of Texas-Austin on the Holocaust controversy. Martinez is an ex-Klan member, and ex-member of The Order, the northwest White supremacist group destroyed by the Federales several years ago. In his caper with The Order, Martinez turned on his buddies, cut a deal with the Feds, and saved his own neck.

"Since then, Martinez has been an informant for the FBI and a lecturer for the Anti-Defamation League and the Simon Wiesenthal Center... Martinez will be at the Texas Union Ballroom at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, where organizers say he will tear down the myths of Holocaust revisionists..."

We're not certain where or when Tom Martinez got his knowledge of revisionist theory, as we have yet to see or even hear of an example of it. But maybe Tom is a quick study. Maybe the intellectuals at Texas are not very demanding. To tell the truth, I rather had that impression when I was there last.
