Debunking Holocaust Denial – The Fred Leuchter Report – #2

June 2, 2021 // 1 Comment

Fred Leuchter is an American manufacturer of execution equipment and prominent Holocaust denier who is best known as the author of the Leuchter report, a pseudoscientific document that alleges there were no gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau. To reach this conclusion, Leuchter tested for cyanide residue using a type of analysis which was not appropriate for producing accurate results on samples he collected in an uncontrolled manner. Normally I would say that people like him design experiments [...]

“Myles Power Doesn’t Know a God Damn Thing About Chemistry”

October 5, 2020 // 8 Comments

Recently I published a video which defended my work debunking Holocaust denialism, after it drew criticism from white nationalists online. Mike Enoch, Jesse Dunstan, and Alex McNabb of the TDS (formally The Daily Shoah) podcast took issue with my videos on the subject, stating that I wasn’t simply misinformed, but that I was purposely lying to my audience over the events that took place. The trio dedicated hour-long sections in three of their podcasts, where for the most part they just called [...]

Defending My Work Debunking Holocaust Denialism Against White Nationalist and Neo Nazi Mike Enoch

August 31, 2020 // 5 Comments

In the past, I have published three videos investigating claims made by Holocaust deniers that the Nazis did not systematically kill millions of people in their death camps. In these videos I believed that I had crushed the foundation of the Holocaust denialism movement and was surprised when I was recently contacted by a large number of people who were unconvinced by the evidence I presented. Upon questioning them I discovered that they were all listeners of the podcast TDS (formally The Daily [...]

Defending My Work Debunking Holocaust Denialism Against White Nationalist and Neo-Nazi Mike Enoch

In the past, I have published three videos investigating claims made by Holocaust deniers that the Nazis did not systematically kill millions of people in their death camps. My first two videos on the subject focused on what I considered to be the strongest arguments made in the Holocaust-denying documentary Judea Declares War on Germany. One of these arguments centred around the formation of a blue pigment known as Prussian Blue. This compound can be formed from a reaction between hydrogen [...]

Debunking The Holocaust Denial Documentary Judea Declares War on Germany – #2

February 28, 2018 // 1 Comment

As I have previously said, the documentary, ‘Judea Declares War on Germany’, is so tightly crammed with bulls**t that it runs the risk of collapsing in on itself like a neutron star. This became a problem when it came to deciding what I wanted to rebuttal next as I felt compelled to refute every inaccuracy and point out every example of data manipulation. However, if I were to do this, I would be publishing videos on the subject for months to come. I have therefore decided to write only one [...]

Debunking The Holocaust Denial Documentary Judea Declares War on Germany – #1

January 28, 2018 // 10 Comments

As unpleasant and potentially dangerous a belief in a conspiracy theory can be they do, for the most part, come from a natural human desire to find an explanation for what appears to be unexplainable. However, there are certain conspiracy theories that come from a much darker place. Where people bend reality to back up and justify their dislike or even hatred towards a certain group of people – and there is no better example of this than those who distort or flat-out deny the facts of the [...]

#195 – Holocaust Denialism

January 28, 2018 // 1 Comment

Yesterday was International Holocaust remembrance day, on the 27th of January 1945 Auschwitz was liberated. Roughly 6 million Jews, 250k mentally disabled, 200k Romani, and close to 10k homosexual men. Despite being highly documented, having 1000s of complimentary personal accounts on both sides, and Nazi admitting it, some people still think the Holocaust was fictional. The nerds watch a video which is banned in parts of the EU. This documentary makes so many blatant mistakes it’s hard [...]

Debunking The Holocaust Denial Documentary Judea Declares War on Germany (Part 2)

January 25, 2018 // 10 Comments

The Holocaust denialist documentary Judea Declares War on Germany is quite possibly one of the most insidious pieces of media I have ever had the misfortune of coming into contact with. I originally watched it for an episode of The League of Nerds – a weekly podcast I do with fellow nerds, James Gurney and Buck Mulligan, where we like to watch scientifically inaccurate documentaries and then rip them apart. For some time, we have been wanting to cover the subject of Holocaust denialism, [...]
