REPORT ON THE CONFERENCE WITH HOFFMAN IN SAN JOSE
By Michael A. Hoffman II | July 10, 2007
Bruce Leichty, the American lawyer for Ernst Zundel (the jailed homicidal gas chamber skeptic serving five years in a German prison) hosted a two day “Good Information Advocates” conference in San Jose, California last week. It was timed to coincide with the Mennonite Church’s national convention, also in San Jose (Leichty is a Mennonite). Thousands of Mennonites were leafletted with invitations to attend. A handful did. The rest of the audience was primarily comprised of this writer’s readers and supporters.
Day 1, July 4, featured a survivor of the destruction of the Twin Towers in New York, as well as Dr. Paul Rea (pronounced “Ray”), Professor of Philosophy at St. Mary’s College in the Bay area, who offered a well-reasoned and balanced survey of 9/11 doubts, contradictions, anomalies and pitfalls. His was a summation of the state-of-the-art in 9/11 Truth activism. Prof. Rea is no fanatic and entertains all sides of the controversy with insight, wit and humor. He is very much an asset to the movement.
Next we heard, by phone, from a Prof. at Berkeley City College. I will not mention his name because he was not happy with my presence at the conference, based on my Auschwitz homicidal gas chamber skepticism. I was later told that the ADL had contacted him in an intimidating manner and that after they did so, he protested to Bruce for including “Holocaust-deniers” on the website advertising the meeting.
Nonetheless, this professor gave an interesting talk on the “weaponization of information” surrounding 9/11, after first upholding the right of WWII revisionists to speak, write and research freely.
Also on Day 1, Bruce played a tape of a speech I gave a few years ago on the occult/mind-napping aspects of 9/11: “Inside the 9/11 Conspiracy”
Day 2, July 5, featured the revisionist portion of the conference and opened with presentations by revisionism’s grand dame, Ingrid Rimland Zundel, Ernst’s loyal wife who courageously soldiers on in behalf of her imprisoned husband, even as she cares for her seriously ill adult son. Her presentation included a showing of a video documentary about Ernst which Ingrid arranged to have shown to Iranian leaders during the revisionist meetings held in Tehran last year.
As the final event, in the evening this writer addressed a small but enthusiastic crowd of about 25 people with the most elaborate and detailed power point slideshow presentation on Judaism I have ever offered. Mr. Leichty was generous with my allotment of time and I spoke from approximately 7:45 p.m. to 9:15 and then took questions until approximately 9:45.
My presentation was videotaped and if the audio and video of the recording are of decent quality we will offer it on DVD(s) at a future date.
Surprise guest Craig Heimbichner, author of “Blood on the Altar,” preceded me at 7:30 p.m. with an excellent fifteen minute talk on the OTO (Ordo Templi Orientis–successor group to the Freemasons).
At the conclusion of my talk, one of my questioners was hostile and though I attempted to mollify him and congratulate him on his courage in challenging me before a crowd of my supporters (a position I have occupied in the past as the lone dissenter in a room full of opponents), it did no good, and I am told he complained loudly to the Mennonite organizing committee that Bruce Leichty was sponsoring “hate,” even though I must have denounced hatred a half dozen times in the course of my presentation; but there is sometimes no reasoning with indoctrinated people.
Apart from whatever edification my talk may have imparted to the audience, the other benefit was the opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones and this we certainly accomplished in a spirit of conviviality. Thanks to Bruce Leichty for making this possible. He put his reputation on the line, did much hard work and paid for the speakers, transportation, lodging and the venue.
