The cat is out of the bag, as The Guardian wrote on May 3, 2013:
To those who knew him, or thought they they knew him, he was a cerebral, fun-loving gadfly who hosted boozy gatherings for Hollywood's political conservatives. David Stein brought right-wing congressmen, celebrities, writers and entertainment industry figures together for shindigs, closed to outsiders, where they could scorn liberals and proclaim their true beliefs. […]
There was just one problem. Stein was not who he claimed. His real name can be revealed for the first time publicly – a close circle of confidants only found out the truth recently – as David Cole.
David Cole, of course, is known to revisionists as the atheist Jew (whatever that is) who in 1992 created a famous video documentary about the fake gas chamber at the Auschwitz main camp. Following this he appeared on a few TV shows together with Bradley Smith, for instance at the Phil Donahue Show. After he had received death threats from the terrorist group "Jewish Defense League" in 1997, he went into hiding, changing his identity to protect his family and himself.
An enraged friend now blew his cover, and Reporter Rory Carroll indulges his own kind of humor as he "unmasks" David Cole, writing,
"The young Cole became a notorious celebrity, the turncoat Jew, ferried from studio to studio, gleefully clashing with historians and Jewish representatives."
Carroll quotes anyone with something nasty to say about Mr. Cole, ending his article with Rabbi Abraham Cooper, of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre,
"I'm very disappointed that someone who abused his Jewishness to get his five minutes of notoriety still stands by his lies. It's disgusting and puts him in the camp of bigotry."
Carroll ignores an important fact. David Cole did some very daring research which showed that much of the "evidence" presented to tourists at Auschwitz were simplistic fakes created after the War. It is now generally accepted that Mr. Cole was right; fake gas chamber doors, fake vent holes, fake chimney.
Carroll also skates over a second important fact, i.e. the harassment and death threats Cole received, mentioning only "a death threat from the Jewish Defense league a militant, violent group." Here is a typical quote of the venom spit at Mr. Cole:
What is a David Cole? Is it a sickness? Is it a mental disease? Is Cole merely a human parasite who clings to his ardent Nazi supporters and friends who back his ideas whole-heartedly? After all, this Cole mania that the media have played on, don't you think it's time that we flush this rotten, sick individual down the toilet, where the rest of the waste lies? One less David Cole in the world will certainly not end Jew-hatred, but it will have removed a dangerous parasitic, disease-ridden bacteria from infecting society […]
Just as we must get rid of this monster, Cole, we must also get rid of the word "revisionism" from our vocabulary. This awful word and Cole, too, must be eliminated altogether. There is no argument. There needs to be no more debates, only the elimination of the Holocaust deniers."
Rory Carroll doesn't quote that, leaving it at "Turncoat Jew."
Carroll seems to delight in the trouble he has caused by "outing" Mr. Cole. That someone's career can be destroyed overnight for not believing a part of the Holocaust Tale does not cause Carroll pause. It is the most important part of the whole story.
Intolerance, threats and force are not typically a good atmosphere in which to find truth. Irrespective of this encounter with intellectual muggers, his work will stands or falls on its own merits in the long term. The film "David Cole interviews Dr. Franciszek Piper" is every bit as valid now as it was prior to the strong-arm intimidation of the man who made it.
