Taxpayers Federation YANKS Offensive Blog

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation have yanked an offensive blog entry posted by their Saskatchewan director, David McLean! Rather than doing the right thing and extending an apology and retraction, the group simply pulled the thread and are now crossing their fingers and hoping that it will all just go away. In the offensive blog entry, Mr. McLean posted the following words:

"Yet in 1938, according to both William Shirer and John Toland, the Nazi regime held no more than 20,000 political prisoners. Political executions up to the time might have reached a couple thousand, and most of these were of renegade Nazis themselves during the indiscriminate butchery known as the "Night of the Long Knives." The famous Kristallnacht that horrified civilized opinion worldwide caused a grand total of 71 deaths. This in a nation of 70 million. Cuba was a nation of 6.5 million in 1959. Within three months in power, Castro and Che had shamed the Nazi prewar incarceration and murder rate."

Buckdog has recorded ALL entries in the offensive thread and will post them here in the near future. Essentially, Mr. Mclean got himself into trouble by advocating the false notion that post revolution activites in Cuba were equal to the Nazi Holocaust. This type of 'Zundelesque' trivialization of the Holocaust cannot be tolerated by anyone. Mr. McLean and the Canadian Taxpayers Federation owe us all an apology for this bizarre attempt at historical revision. Shame on them!

I will repeat to you what I said to your colleague on a separate thread on this blogsite:
"You absolutely are diminishing the horrors of the holocaust. Your intense hatred of anything politically 'left' is such that you felt you could get away with exagerating historical fact to suit your anti-left agenda. By advocating that the post revolution Cuban situation and the horrors of 8 million Jewish people being killed by Hitler were different only by the 'number of deaths' is preposterous, offensive, ignorant and worthy of all of the outrage you and your association are receiving. In the thread that you have deleted (and are running away from) you made your opinion very clear that the only difference between the Cuban post-revolutionary era and the Nazi Holocaust is the total number killed."

Hey moneybags, you said "First off I have no affiliation with the CTF" hmmm... maybe you should apply to work there, I think they may like your world view.

P.S. - Oh by the way moneybags, the reason you should apply to work for the CTF is because I think they will be looking for a new Saskatchewan director in the not too distant future!

moneybags- your ignorance of the Holocause is astounding - astounding.
I am so glad you spelled out your beliefs for all to see. You simply do not get it. Are you sure that you aren't really someone from the CTF?????
