Nicholas Kollerstrom – Sue Me.
The Morning Star decided, for some strange reason, that Kollerstrom, the well known neo-Nazi with a Phd, had written an excellent book on the 7/7 attacks.
Now anyone with an ounce of sense, familiarity with the subject, access to Google or basic antifascist skills would know why that was a bad idea.
Nick Kollerstrom is essentially a neo-Nazi.
I don’t know why the Star couldn’t have seen all of that with some elementary journalistic research.
Perhaps they should have read my slightly tongue-in-cheek guide For UCU Activists – How To Avoid Re-posting from Neo-Nazi, Ku Klux Klan or White Power Web Sites.
Update 1: Dave Osler covered it too.
Update 2: It seems that the Star has finally taken down that awful review.
Update 3: Bob covered this neo-Nazi last year.
Update 4: Tom Gross posted on Kollerstrom before:
“LONDON UNIVERSITY REJECTS HOLOCAUST DENIER
Marking a welcome departure from the recent policies of other British universities who have invited Holocaust deniers to address students (they claim, on free speech grounds) University College London last week withdrew a researcher’s fellowship after he published an article claiming that the gas chambers of Auschwitz never existed.
The university’s move came after one of its academics, Dr. Nicholas Kollerstrom, 61, posted an article, “The Auschwitz ‘Gas Chamber’ Illusion,” on the website of the revisionist “Committee for Open Debate on the Holocaust.”
Dr. Kollerstrom wrote: “The only intentional mass extermination program in the concentration camps of WW2 was targeted at Germans.”
“Let us hope the schoolchildren visitors are properly taught about the elegant swimming-pool at Auschwitz, built by the inmates, who would sunbathe there on Saturday and Sunday afternoons while watching the water-polo matches; and shown the paintings from its art class, which still exist; and told about the camp library which had some 45,000 volumes for inmates to choose from, plus a range of periodicals; and the six camp orchestras at Auschwitz/Birkenau, its theatrical performances, including a children’s opera, the weekly camp cinema, and even the special brothel established there.”
Dr Kollerstrom, of St John’s Wood, north-west London, said “I don’t understand why they are calling me a neo-Nazi. I have some very good Jewish friends and I have always belonged to the Green Party, CND and Respect.” [All three are mainstream leftwing movements in the UK.]”
Update 4: Kollerstrom’s publisher, Progressive Press, certainly has some explaining to do, but a cursory glance at their web site www.waronfreedom.org reveals a nasty, unhealthy mix of anti-politics, 9/11 paranoia and racist conspiracy theories. One example, their NWO (New World Order) page:
“What is the “New World Order?” In fact this name really belonged to our Founding Fathers and their Constitutional Republic. The name, too, has been stolen by the criminal cabal who have cloaked themselves in so many names.
Now of course “New World Order” has become doublespeak for an old, feudal order imposed by ancient tricks of intrigue, enhanced by modern means of indoctrination. Divide and conquer, bread and circuses, the imperial formula.
Who are they? All the names for them – Illuminati, CFR, Bilderbergs, Trilaterals, Elders of Zion, Freemasons, Jesuits, etc. – conceal as much as they show. Quite simply, the masked elephant in the room is the Anglo financier mafia – the bankster oligarchy, heirs of the British empire, who pretty much run this planet. “
I hope readers will see the pattern?
Update 5: Dig around Kollerstrom’s publisher, Progressive Press and you begin to see common themes, one “author” claims:
“Hitler was a British Agent, by Greg Hallett.
Covers Hitler’s psychological training in Britain during his missing year (1912) and how this was used to steer him as a puppet of British intelligence, carrying out the Anglo empire’s plan to destroy the European powers, particularly France, Germany and Russia. Based on KGB sources.”
Greg Hallett, along with Kollerstrom, has few hang-ups and I’ll bet reader can guess who he ultimately blames? Here’s a snippet:
“Most of the British Royal family are illegitimate, including Queen Victoria, Prince consort Albert, King Edward VII and his son Winston Churchill. Winston Churchill was first cousin with Adolf Hitler’s father and uncle to Anthony Blunt, King Edward VIII and King George VI. Adolf Hitler’s grandfather ran the Rothschild Bank, the Bank of England, and was the first Jewish MP in British Parliament. “
“The troothers are currently tearing themselves to pieces on the ‘was the jews what done it’ forum.
After we spoke to Conway Hall about the upcoming event featuring holocaust denier Nick Kollerstrom we were accused of working for the MOD/MI5/MOSSAD. This was based on meticulous research by the intrepid Daniel Obachike.” “
