Hardly a day goes by that I do not get a letter congratulating me, advising, criticizing, offering to help, questioning my good sense, pointing out the errors of fact in Smith's Report and the errors of judgement in my thinking. The great majority of the letters are simply to encourage me to continue with this work. For all of them, I thank you. Following are excerpts from this oftentimes (usually) one-sided conversation. While I seldom have time to respond to your correspondence, I always read it.

David Irving. Your last [news]letter was the best yet. Your writing style is becoming very relaxed and readable. A formidable opponent of our traditional foe!

(I don’t understand how a man who has written 30 or so big books based on painstaking, time-consuming research, who travels the earth speaking and jousting with half the governments in the Western world and who knows what else, has time to write little notes to epiphenomenal newsletter publishers. Reminds me of the old saw about how, if you want something done, it’s best to ask a busy man.)

Trystan Mordrel: I've just received issue 31 of your newsletter. Congratulations on the quality of your work! You are in the front line of revisionism.

(One afternoon I was in the garage when Trystan called from France. He apologized for what he described as his poor English, and suggested we speak in Spanish, as I am known far and wide to be bilingual. I suspect Trystan learned Castilian Spanish at university, while I learned Mexican Spanish on the streets in Mexico and here in the barrios. In any event, after a couple moments he interjected in my mother tongue: “No, no, Bradley, this is no good. Let’s speak English.” So English it was but when Trystan writes he writes in Spanish, as he did with the above note.

Dennis Nix: (e-mail) I think your material is an excellent complement to the “cold,” logical writings of someone like Butz, who I also admire. You're providing a valuable service in humanizing our thought processes for the non-objective among us. Your experiences and intellectual conversion reflect some of my own.

(I’ve been waiting for this for 15 years. A favorable comparison with the inimitable Butz.)

Carl Hottelet: Just as I had concluded that with SR31 you had reached some sort of pinnacle, along came SR32, which, in some measure, perhaps, overshadows it. Your treatment of Goldhagen is the most effective I've seen, and well timed.

Re Mr. Widmann’s expose, as it were, of the World Wide Web and related techniques, it is the best I’ve read on the subject — though I read of it, and with ever less interest, only casually, in newspapers, etc. — it is the first time I've encountered something intelligent, and intelligible, on the subject. I hope you and Mr. Widmann may be planning to have him write monthly on the “technique and operation of the Internet.”

(We are planning this, and working toward a monthly column. Meanwhile, Mr. Widmann appears occasionally.)

Camille Anciand: Congratulations! You are a hit in France and you really disturb the establishment. This is great promotion.

(Included with this note is a photocopy of a full page from the French newspaper DH – France-Soir dated 3 May 96. It’s a page full of pictures of words and graphics from “pro-White” and “neo-Nazi” Web sites world-wide. In the text, titled “Nazis: They’re on the Net,” reference is made to various revisionist Web pages [though not to CODOH’s site as such] and to fervid efforts by French officials to find legal and technical means of policing the Internet.)

Lou Rollins: (Lou is still adding to his Lucifer’s Lexicon, looking forward I hope to a new expanded edition. The two definitions below are the latest I’ve received.)

Gerstein, Kurt: The Balzac of Belzec.
Santa Ana, General Antonio Lopez De: “Those who forget the Alamo are condemned to repeat it.”

Dr. Attilio Iannaccone: (e-mail) I'm an Italian doctor and in private law, and also I like to study history and philosophy. I'm really happy to find you on line, especially for your activities to forward the truth.'

Wilbur Sensor: Bradley, stop worrying about Tom Metzger’s [anti-Semitic] cartoons. You are trying to expose a hoax of conspiratorial implications, and yet you are offended by a vulgar cartoon attacking Jews. You never cease to amaze me.

“Free speech” is not what this issue is all about. You can't tell the truth about the Holocaust, but then you can’t tell the truth about Blacks, invading aliens or have-it-both ways females, either.

Exposing the Holocaust is about exposing the Jews, whether you like it or not. They know it, you don’t. As I’ve tried to tell you before, the truth about this hoax will not benefit the Jews, any more than the truth will benefit a guilty defendant. Exposing the Holocaust will be as brutal and difficult a struggle as the warfare in Russia. Wars produce atrocities, exposing the Holocaust will produce enormous animosity on both sides.

(Not on my side. For some reason beyond my understanding, thought recalls the Monday night supper table of December 8th, 1941. I was 11 years old. There was company, my favorite aunt and her husband, and the talk was about Pearl Harbor and I told them about how a Japanese boy at my Junior High had been beaten up that morning on the way to school and how I didn’t understand why. My father explained why that had happened but for some reason I couldn’t understand the connection between Pearl Harbor and the kid I went to school with and I think Father began to feel a little ashamed for having such a son. After he explained it to me half a dozen times and after I remained unconvinced and inclined even to debate the matter, he leaned forward over the table with his knife in one hand and fork in the other and said, “You’re just a Goddam Jap lover.” I recall how he looked at his sister for her approval. I’m not certain he got it. I didn’t know what to say after that, I think I was a little confused, so I zipped it up. But here I am now, more than half a century later, still unable in all my maturity to feel the proper animosity toward others. It occurs to me that in a certain way I resemble Goebbels, our man in the news these days. I was born with a certain deformity and expect to have to live with it till I die.)
