Video denying holocaust causes uproar

Jasper Fitzhugh

A video shot by a local resident denying the Holocaust has been widely condemned by the community and at least one resident has filed a formal complaint with the Alberta Human Rights Commission.

On June 17, Monika Schaefer, a well-known Jasper resident and former Green Party candidate, appeared in a video on Youtube denying the Holocaust. The video was subsequently posted on her Facebook page.  

“This is the most persistent and pernicious lie in all of history,” said Schaefer, about the Holocaust.

In the video she described the Holocaust as the “the six-million lie” in reference to the six million Jews who lost their lives at the hands of the Nazis during the Second World War.

The six-minute video quickly went viral and garnered more than 30,000 views at the time of publishing.

At the end of the video Schaefer invited viewers to read several books published by Holocaust deniers, including Ernst Zündel, who lived in Canada for four decades before being deported to his native Germany where he was imprisoned for five years for denying the Holocaust.

Ken Kuzminski, president of the Jasper Royal Canadian Legion, described the video as hate speech.

“Monika has a right to say whatever she wants to say, but once she’s published it I feel that’s moved on to hate speech,” said Kuzminski.

“She can stand up and say whatever she wants, but she has to accept the consequences of doing that.”

He said he has written a formal complaint to the Alberta Human Rights Commission, contacted the local RCMP detachment and the German embassy.

“By her denying that this ever happened it perpetuates hatred, racism and discrimination,” said Kuzminski, adding he’s heard from several young people in town that they no longer feel safe.

“This is not the community we are and what we believe in.”

The Alberta Human Rights Commission neither confirmed nor denied it had received a formal complaint.

“All of the information that comes into the human rights commission with regards to complaints is confidential,” said Susan Coombes, with the Alberta Human Rights Commission.

With that said, she said any complaint involving hate would fall under section three of the Alberta Human Rights Act.

“It’s really difficult to prove,” said Coombes, about whether someone is in violation of the act. “What you have to do is say that there was intent to incite hate.”

The Jasper RCMP confirmed it was aware of the video, but said no formal investigation has been launched.

“At this time what I can say is that I’m aware the video exists and it was brought to my attention,” said RCMP Sgt. Rick Bidaisee. “Discussions are ongoing.”

Schaefer said she stood by her comments in the video during a telephone interview July 11.

“Right now the issue for me is freedom of speech,” said Schaefer. “Last I checked I thought we had freedom of speech in Canada and suddenly I’m the criminal.”

She confirmed she shot the video in Germany, where it is illegal to deny the Holocaust.

“If we don’t have the right to question a historical event then we don’t have freedom of speech,” said Schaefer.

Schaefer was slated to perform during Canada Day, but was pulled from the schedule after the Canada Day committee learned a group of residents were going to protest her performance.

“We had really reliable information that there was going to be a protest and in the interests of public safety and her safety for that matter, we decided it would just be in everybody’s best interests if she stood down for this year,” said Pattie Pavlov, general manager for the Jasper Park Chamber of Commerce.

Kuzminski confirmed she is also banned from the legion.

The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA) quickly condemned the video after learning of its existence.

“As a Holocaust denier, Ms. Schaefer, who appears in this absurd video, has earned her place on the very margins of society,” wrote Martin Sampson, director of communications for CIJA.

“Her comments would be laughable but for the intense pain they cause the survivor community and their descendants. Denying the Holocaust exposes her as an anti-Semitic ignoramus.”

“The truth is the Holocaust was industrialized, state-sponsored murder committed by the Nazis against the Jewish people. It is the most well documented genocide—by both perpetrator and victim—in history. To deny this fact is to spit in the face of truth.”

News that a formal complaint was lodged with the Alberta Human Rights Commission, comes after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, on July 10 in Poland, where one million people, mostly Jews, were killed in the Second World War.

  1. “As a Holocaust denier, Ms. Schaefer, who appears in this absurd video, has earned her place on the very margins of society,” wrote Martin Sampson, director of communications for CIJA”
    DAMN SKIPPY… GET DOWN HERE WITH THE REST OF US

  2. ““Monika has a right to say whatever she wants to say, but once she’s published it I feel that’s moved on to hate speech,” said Kuzminski.”

    So if you publish an article or a book that you don’t agree with, that’s “hate speech”? Wow. Who the hell educated your ass? That teacher should be banned from teaching.

    ““She can stand up and say whatever she wants, but she has to accept the consequences of doing that.””

    As do you for believing that it actually happened, you dumbass.

    ““Her comments would be laughable but for the intense pain they cause the survivor community and their descendants. Denying the Holocaust exposes her as an anti-Semitic ignoramus.””

    The survivor community? What survivor community? All of the people of the holohoax died of old age and the fact that you still think the world believes your lies would be laughable if it weren’t for the intense pain they caused the survivor community and their descendants who have been imprisoned for speaking out against it and exercising their FREEDOM OF SPEECH. So right back at ya, CIJA!

  3. How come non-Jewish videos don’t cause uproars but only anti-Jewish videos do? Who died and made you King?

  4. Damn Jews and their imaginary six million.
    The sign at Auschwitz used to say 3 million Jews were killed there. They changed it and now it says one million.
    You’d think the Jews would be happy that there are a couple million more living Jews walking around on the planet, but for some reason they get all angry and deny it. They keep going around and calling people names when they point it out. Like “anti-Semitic ignoramus.”
    Denying the denyers who are denying is a form of denial.

  5. “It is the most well documented genocide—by both perpetrator and victim—in history.”

    It is? Fabled stories from babushka wearing grannies or paid traveling storytellers who have been proven to be frauds ad infinitum with their hands out isn’t “documentation”.

    The six-kajillionth movie made about a physically impossible “event” isn’t “documentation”.

    Daily news rag stories of even MORE “survivors” isn’t “documentation.

  6. Unlike falsehoods, the truth never needs to be buttressed by legal threats.

    *** “She can stand up and say whatever she wants, but she has to accept the consequences of doing that.” ***

    That has been the case in every totalitarian society that has ever existed. In a society that respects human rights, there are NO legal consequences to the expression of ideas.

  7. “This is the most persistent and pernicious lie in all of history,” said Schaefer, about the Holocaust.”

    Other than the stinking jews calling themselves ‘God’s Chosen’,… AGREED!

    DESPICABLE LIARS!!!

    And damn good at it, too, judging by all the stupid people that still believe them!

  8. Absolutely: We find in the NYT the following dates crying that 6 million Jews are being persecuted, starved and killed in Europe and Russia.

    June 11th, 1900
    May 2-5-7th, 1920
    Nov. 12th. 1919

    Also in several European papers, Communist Propaganda during the 1930’s – 1940’s are references to 6 million Jews being killed in Europe, prior to Germany’s camps.

    One must remember that of the 501 highest offices in the First Soviet Socialist Republic of Russia, 467 were Jews. As Alexander Solzenitzyn writes in his last book on the history of Russia’s last 200 years, that the Jews murdered over 66 million Russians, Romanians, Polish, Hungarians, Ukrainians, Lithuanians, Latvians, Estonians, etc; that all the prison camps, gulags, and torture chambers were officiated and run by Bolshevik Jews. The “Young Turks” who murdered 1.5-2 million Armenians, were all Jews, including the leader of Turkey at the time, who was a Maranos or secret Jew.

    Population of Jews Worldwide according to the World Almanac and the American Jewish Congress.

    1929- 15,630,000
    1938- 15,748,091
    1948- 15,763, 630

    The World Almanac and “Jewish Census figures” prior to WWII list the world pop. of Jews to be slightly over 15.5 million and after WWII to be slightly over 16.5 million. – go figure

    The International Red Cross, which was allowed complete unrestricted access to all German camps and prisoners, who documented all the deaths in the camps, list the total number of Jews died in the camps at approx. 350,000. Some were indeed shot for trying to escape, for espionage, for other criminal reasons and I’m sure many were murdered out of the 350,000. However, the majority of the 350,000 that died in the camps was due to typhoid and starvations due to the allies bombing everything that moved the last two years of the war, thus preventing any supplies from reaching the camps. The Germans, of course, who also were short on food and supplies used what was left for their own troops and people.

    The origin of the 6 million figure comes from both the Jewish Torah or Tulmud, which has a prophecy that 6 million had to die, as penance, in order to again occupy the “promised land” or Israel today. So, they had to make up a number in order to excuse their move into Palestine and today’s Israel.

    Russian Revolution: As mentioned above – 66 million killed by the Jews
    Armenian Genocide: 1.5-2 million killed by the Jews.
    Chinese Communist Revolution of Mao: Orchestrated by 12 Bolshevik Jews who advised and planned Mao’s slaughter of over 75,000,000 Chinese.

    Who is next for the murdering Jews to exterminate: DHS, set up by Chertoff (Jew) with their “FEMA camps”……………………………………..

    My mother: Who was with the Dutch Resistance, captured in 1943, two years in the concentration camps, Buchenwald, Labor Camps and the Nuremburg Camp – there were no ovens for the dirty Jews.

    My father: A Canadian soldier, who landed at D-Day, liberated some of the camps, who stayed for a year after the war during the occupation – most died of typhoid and there were no ovens.

    “Jews are enemies of mankind” – St. Paul the Apostle – scripture
    “The Synagogue of Satan” – Revelations.

    You will also find, after serious study, that Jewish organizations, lawyers, Congressmen, legal groups and associations, individuals, etc, were all the leaders, instigators and planners of: Abortion, homosexuality, immodesty in dress (fashions), pornography, contraception, and more – Jews being the leaders and fomenters of the most vile and sinful practices in the world, who with their monies, power and sinister reasons have foisted on our peoples the most vile and sinful practices, which I must say, most welcomed with great embrace.

    Perfidious Jews:

    I strongly suggest all read the following – all available in full on the net to read in total:

    1976 Interview with Mr. Harold Rosenthal, former persona aide to then Sen. Jacob K. Javits. Mr Rosenthal was ultimately killed for giving this arrogant but truthful interview.

    “The Plot Against the Church”, written under the pen name of “Maurice Pinay”, 1962, by twelve Vatican Theologian/Historians, and with the help of several Prelates. Only one of the authors have ever being outed. The Vatican tried to stop the publication of this book but were too late as it had already hit the bookshelves in Italy in 1962, now avail in English and on the net in full.
    “The Plot Against the Church” – the history of the Jewish war against Christ and His Church – of how thousands of Jews faked conversion to Christianity, have become Catholic Cardinals (maybe even two or three of the last Popes), Bishops, Prelates, Protestant Bishops, Pagan Priests, Islamic Clerics, etc, all to undermine the world religions and towards a One World Satanic Judeo/Freemasonic Dictatorship.

    Examples of Marranos (Crypto or Secret Jews):

    John Kerry, Madeline Albright, Gen. Wesley Clark: All three were outed by Investigative Journalists as coming from generations of Jewry, but faked conversion to Catholicism.

    Supreme Sotomayor – Nancy Pelosi and her husband – all three come from generations of Latin American Jewry, but pass themselves off as Catholics.

    Open your eyes America.

    1. Thank you, JarHead, for putting all these facts together in one post. I’m sure it will be helpful to some who have not heard these facts before.

  9. so denying the holocaust makes your community unsafe? 6 million was used in WW1, something to do with albert pike.

    I deny the 6 million dead and the holocaust. Since the holo-supporters refuse to core drill to collect samples to confirm, or deny, the presence of human remains, then I will continue to deny.
    “HOLO-HOAX”, now prove me wrong!

  10. The supposed HolyCost has been used as the grease to allow the Synagogue of Satan to gain the cultural and political advantage that would have been denied them if they were not the “Oy, I’m a Victim” stereotype in peoples’ minds. God’s judgement is coming upon those liars…..and I would like to think I will not shed a tear for them at that time. At present, they do not moisten my eyes in the least. There is nothing worse to me personally than a lie – and those that perpetrate it.
