Dov Hikind, long-time New York State Assemblyman for Borough Heights, Brooklyn, won himself a special place in the hearts both of revisionists and lovers of free speech when, in 2010, he successfully got American Express and other credit-card companies to deny their services to British Historian David Irving. Since then, his extensively Orthodox Jewish constituency has returned him to office twice, at least once with no opposition. Up until now, he has resisted a move that politicians in more-cosmopolitan districts have made long ago: having his own Web site (he has long had a radio talk show on 620 AM in New York). For whatever reason, he recently established his own Web site, and it can be viewed, even from thousands of miles outside New York, at http://dovhikind.com/portfolios/nazis-among-us/. Hikind's moves with regard to David Irving, and since then threatening the same treatment to, among others, CODOH, have global reach, at …
Dov Hikind, the darling of every person in the whole world who favors freedom of speech (and longtime New York Assemblyman for Brooklyn's Borough Heights neighborhood), has found a (suspected, former) Nazi right near him and his constituents in teeming Queens, New York City. And there might be more across the vastness of America, to which, along with Israel, he claims responsibility for policing.

Fortunately, on reflection, I realize, I know these Jews personally (they are my neighbors), and they're nothing like Dov Hikind. Now, Nazis ... I've looked around for these, and noted no goose-steppers, no Sieg Heilers, no one proclaiming themselves members of a master race (there are …
Dov Hikind, redoubtable New York State Assemblyman from Borough Heights, Brooklyn, is frustrated. He wants to put out a message (and harass a distant neighbor who has done no one any harm, at least for as long as Hikind has been alive), and something seems to be censoring him! Hikind is trying to buy bus-stop advertising inciting people in Queens, just outside his district, to eject (deport? lynch?) a 91-year-old resident who seems at one time or another during World War II to have been pressed into service guarding a German concentration camp, or something like that. This experience could give him some sympathy with David Irving, the Institute for Historical Review, and others whose ability to accept credit cards Hikind has disrupted in order to silence them, except that the present imbroglio would seem to be saving Hikind money, rather than costing him. Hikind doesn't really seem the sympathetic …
