| The Last Days Of The Big Lie
This documentary - a solo effort by a young American Revisionist named Eric Hunt - uses extensive footage from Steven Spielberg's acclaimed yet seriously flawed "The Last Days". The viewer may not care for the narrator's polemical and at times acerbic style, but once that obstacle is overcome there are few serious criticisms to be made of it.

It is still considered almost sacrilegious to challenge the veracity of so-called Holocaust survivors, but the reality is - as Hunt points out here - that the testimonies that are credible do not support the Holocaust narrative, while those that do are not credible.

The simple fact is that many of these people are shameless liars; the story told by Irene Zisblatt beggars belief, and in fact she has been caught on tape making disparate claims prior to her appearance in the Spielberg film.

Hunt produces documentation on Paul Parks, a supposed liberator of one of the most notorious Nazi concentration camps, except that he was no such thing as the "New York Post" pointed out in 1999. Alas, he was not the only one; Leon Bass claimed to have liberated another camp, when he too was nowhere near it at the material time.

Hunt covers too the notorious hoax that helped start the first Gulf War - Operation Desert Shield - the one about wicked Iraqi soldiers murdering premature babies in Kuwait. One of the people involved in the perpetration of this hoax was the late Tom Lantos, who made the transition from Holocaust survivor to United States Congressman.

Two criticisms may be made of Hunt, one is his attack on Spielberg, and the other is his acceptance of the conspiracy narrative. It is easy to see why he adheres to both; when everybody is lying in unison, what else could it be but a conspiracy? The reality though is that Spielberg is as much a victim as the saps who swallow this garbage, and this is not conspiracy but hysteria on a previously unforeseen scale.

Another reality is that the Holocaust as presented in popular culture is entirely different from the one documented in academic books, be they of either the Revisionist or the Exterminationist persuasion. Those who denounce Eric Hunt and people like him should stop and ask themselves where the blame for his bile really lies.
